Sony’s new ‘World’s smallest’ – the Alpha NEX-3 and NEX-5

Sony’s new ‘World’s smallest’ – the Alpha NEX-3 and NEX-5

In terms of capturing your life experiences with digital memories, few rigorously insist on their claim, and simply are not willing to carry a complete studio equipment around in order to shoot an adequate picture of an Australian sunset from the AMP tower. For those discerning ones, there’s a fortunate upheaval in the entry-level dSLR industry with the recently introduced Alpha NEX-3, and 5, at the new top. Sony’s confidently touted “world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens digital cameras” boast a 23.4mmx15.6mm, 14.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, support 720p mpeg-4 video recording, whilst the NEX-5 is further able to record in full HD 1080i AVCHD files, and feature an articulating 3-inch LCD. Both versions will be available in a kit with either a low-profile E 16mm f2.8 lens, or an E 18-55mm, and 18-200mm, f3.5-5.6 optic – count in a weight of around 300g fully equipped, and you’re ready to go.
