After plenty of leaks on the matter, Sony has finally taken official wraps off of the NEX-3N mirrorless camera. The NEX-3N succeeds the NEX-F3 at the low end of Sony’s mirrorless line-up.

The new NEX-3N comes equipped with a 16-50mm power zoom lens that allows you to zoom from the rocker switch around the shutter button or on the lens barrel itself. The camera is equipped with a 16.1MP CMOS sensor and captures full 1080/24p HD video.
