  • Summary: We were really impressed with the Sony Nex-3N . With an affordable price, we have a camera that provides image and video quality, and a solid and easy to handle.

  • Excerpt: During the winter of 2013, Sony announced their smallest NEX model yet, with the introduction of the NEX-3N. The world's smallest interchangeable lens camera to offer an APS-C sized image sensor (as of 2/2013), the NEX-3N shares similar specs to their NEX-F3, with a few "enhancements".

Sony Alpha NEX-3N

3 June 2013
  • Summary: The Alpha NEX-3N is the best camera you can buy for under Rs. 30,000. If you were considering getting an advanced point and shoot, forget it. Get the Alpha NEX-3N instead for its bigger sensor, incredibly compact size and the versatility of being able to swap lenses.
  • Pros: Compact form factor, APS-C sensor for the price of a point and shoot, Fast AF, Amazing high ISO performance
  • Cons: Menu system is a little obtuse, Kit lens doesn't do macro

  • Conclusion: Sony doesn't quite have the same range of proprietary optics as the Micro Four Thirds system, but there is still a good choice available, with third-party manufacturers also making optics for the brand. There's certainly a much wider choice than what is currently available for rival CSCs such as the Olympus PEN MiniNikon 1 J3 and Panasonic GF5

Expert Review

9 March 2013
  • Excerpt: The smallest Sony NEX -series camera to date—and the most compact camera featuring an APS -C sensor—the 16 megapixel NEX -3N is one of the company’s latest entry-level mirrorless models. The camera offers a few updates to its predecessor like a zoom lever and, importantly, a pop-up flash. But the NEX -3 also loses a couple of options, including the multi-accessory port of the older camera.

Camera Test: Sony Alpha NEX-3N

  • Summary: If price has been the only thing keeping you from buying an ILC, you officially have no more excuses left. While the NEX-3n isn’t the best ILC on Sony’s roster, at this price it’s worth every penny. Shooters used to sub-$500 compacts should be very pleased with what they get in this camera, and it’s a solid entry point to the E-mount lens system, which has been steadily gaining steam since its inception.
