Photographers looking for a high-quality interchangeable-lens camera that doesn't break the bank (or their backs) will love the small and light Sony NEX-3N compact system camera. Unlike a digital SLR, the NEX-3N is a "mirrorless" camera with no flip-up mirror, allowing it to be petite and portable. Despite its svelte design, the NEX-3N uses a DSLR-size, 16.1-MP Exmor APS-C sensor and comes with a new 16-50mm (24-75mm equivalent) lens with a power-zoom lever on the camera body to zoom smoothly with just one hand.
The 3-inch, 180-degree tilting LCD screen on the back of the NEX-3N is great for shooting from difficult angles or for easy self-portraits. The camera can shoot full 1080p HD movies at 60i for smooth action or 24p, to mimic the look of film. And even with this high-end feature set, the 3N is the smallest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera on the market.
