Sony has announced a new compact system camera – NEX-5N to slot into its existing NEX line-up, with the latest Sony NEX-5N featuring an improved 16.1 megapixel APS-C sensor compared to its 14.2 megapixel predecessor NEX-5.
Made from light magnesium alloy, the NEX-5N is just 23.3mm at the slimmest point and includes the same quick shutter lag as found on the new NEX-7. With a release time lag of just 0.02 seconds, it is the fastest in the world. An improved autofocus algorhythm doubles the readout speed from the image sensor and results in an AF that is significantly faster than the current NEX-5 model.

Remember we talked about leaked images of Sony Alpha A33 and A55 DSLRs? It was speculated that Sony will have official words for its new series of DSLRs by August 24th and looks like the news was true. Sony has finally launched its alpha series of DSLRs namely the Sony Aplha A33 and Sony Aplha A55. The translucent mirror thing is now official. Go to any Sony store and you can enjoy hands on with the new DSLRs that boast of translucent mirrors.
Over the past years, we have seen many great devices from Sony such as laptops, all-in-one desktop solutions and cameras. Speaking of cameras, Sony announced two new DLSR cameras for this summer. In case you didn’t know DSLR stands for digital single-lens reflex camera that uses mirrors to reflect the light from the lens to the optical viewfinder on the back of the camera and it is used by professional photographers. As for Sony and its DSLR cameras, we have seen several models from their α series, and now Sony has announced two latest models.
We briefly touched on Sony’s latest developments in the ultra compact DSLR field back in February and it was then that we learnt the direction in which Sony would soon be expanding their Alpha series DSLRs. Officially announced yesterday were the NEX-5 and NEX-3, both of which will be new additions to Sony’s DSLR lineup, available from this summer.
Not only do the two cameras not compromise the ability to have interchangeable lens, they are both compact and much lighter in weight than conventional bulky DSLRs, both NEX-3 and NEX-5 boast a new Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with a resolution of 14.2 effective megapixels. If you fancy HD video recording like myself, you would probably be more interested in the bigger brother of the two, the NEX-5.
