The latest of the seemingly endless iterations of Sony NEX interchangeable lens cameras is the NEX-3N. At $500 including kit-lens, Sony is shooting for the lower end with this one—primarily people who are just stepping up from a smartphone or compact point-and-shoot. We got a chance to toy around with the new camera today at the American Museum of Natural History. First impression? Adorable.
The NEX-3N is a replacement for the NEX-F3, packing the exact same 16 megapixel APS-C sensor, but in a body that is smaller and lighter. And whoa, is this guy small—really small. That's pretty much the story with the NEX-3N. Most of the other features, the image quality (good), the autofocus (decent), are all the same.
