It’s May 11 in Asia, and that means the Sony NEX3 and NEX5 camera have just been formally announced., after weeks of rumors.
Pictured above is the more affordable NEX3. The NEX5 is the same but has a thicker hand-grip (for more battery power?) and shoots 1080i video instead of 720p video.
But the NEX3 looks best, and since it is cheaper ($640) I am focusing on it. That’s a 16mm lens on the front (24mm equivalent).
…I think the flash costs extra. Not sure yet.
The screen tilts up and down (but doesn’t flip around to be seen from the front)
