Product feature tour for NEX-3NL
It’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a camera. Not only is it the smallest and lightest* camera in the world with swappable lenses, it even produces magazine-worthy shots with the blurry backgrounds you crave. There’s even a screen that flips completely around for perfectly-framed self-portraits and a motorized zoom lens. It’s really in a class of its own. *with an APS-C sensor Alpha NEX-3N with 16-50mm Lens

Features

16.1 MP Exmor® HD APS sensor

You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Thanks to the large 16.1 megapixel APS-C sensor size and Sony Exmor® APS HD CMOS technology, the camera achieves high resolution with no penalty in low-light sensitivity or sensor noise.

New SELP1650 power zoom lens with motor zoom lever and body control

A new zoom lever on the body of the camera allows for effortless one-handed operation and smooth zooming* even when shooting self-portraits, bringing compact camera convenience to the realm of interchangeable-lens models.

Beautifully composed self-portraits made easy

The NEX-3N’s tiltable LCD screen flips up 180° to make shooting self-portraits a snap. Include other people, experiment with interesting angles or shoot against famous landmarks. When you press the shutter, the camera does all the work.

Full HD 1080/60i/24p or 1080/30p MP4 movies4

Record stunning high quality Full HD video4 in either 60i or 24p frames per second. Records in your choice of 60i/24p Blu-Ray quality AVCHD format5, or in PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format.

Built-in flash built into compact body

Perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to get the shot, the built-in Guide Number 6 flash1 combines with high ISO sensitivity to enable shooting in just about any setting.

Up to ISO 16000 sensitivity with advanced noise reduction

With a new Exmor sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony’s flagship SLT-A99V, the NEX-3N easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 16000.

Auto Object Framing fills the frame with your subject

Give your photos a professional look with Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus, Auto Object Framing not only turns ordinary photos into stunning compositions but does so automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly.

Newly designed anti-slip grip

Perfect for self-portraits or casual snaps, the natural form ensures quick, comfortable handling and makes the camera easy to carry around. In addition, the textured grip prevents slipping even when shooting one-handed or when using exceptionally large lenses.

Compact, easy-to-carry PZ 16-50mm kit lens

Measuring just 3/16” (29.9mm) when fully retracted, this SELP-1650 retractable zoom lens is super compact and easy to carry so you never miss the moment. It covers a 16mm to 50mm range (35mm equivalent = 24-75mm) for flexible shooting, and is equipped with one ED (extra-low dispersion) and four Aspherical elements, resulting in a high performance lens that is surprisingly compact.

Picture Effect modes

The NEX-3N includes 15 effects that can be applied to photos or movies, giving you the means to vastly expand your artistic repertoire. The ability to view effects in real-time on the LCD screen6 before the shot lets you experiment with different looks until you are satisfied with the result.

Photo Creativity feature

NEX-3N provides easy access to most Picture Effect settings as well as controls for Background Defocus, Brightness, Color and Vividness. Just activate Photo Creativity, choose the appropriate item then adjust while viewing in real-time on the LCD screen. The ability to combine settings offers nearly unlimited creative control, and lets you compensate for tricky lighting.

Superior Auto mode

Use Superior Auto mode to shoot photos and movies with the ease of a compact digital camera. In this mode, the camera recognizes the current shooting environment then adjusts settings for optimal results. Superior Auto also includes Auto HDR and Hand-held Twilight modes, both of which employ image compositing technology to handle difficult lighting by recording multiple images at high speed then compositing them to produce the final photo.

Anti-Motion Blur mode

Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur.

Hand-held Twilight Mode

Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures—beyond the capability of traditional cameras—without using flash or a tripod. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image of extraordinary detail and low noise.

Face Detection/Smile Shutter

Set NEX-3N to recognize faces and smiles. Face Detection locates up to eight faces in a composition then adjusts exposure, white balance and other settings based on these faces. Smile Shutter — adjustable in three levels — automatically takes a shot when smiles in the scene are at their brightest.

Creative Style

Tailor the look of photos and movies before shooting. Choose from one of six settings — Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset or Black & White — depending on the scene or your creative intent.

Speed Priority Continuous mode

Freeze fast-moving subjects by shooting at up to 4 fps. This is the ideal solution for photographing sports, children at play or other action.

Up to 480 Shots6 of battery life

Take up to 480 shots on a single charge6 with Sony® lithium ion Stamina battery power. Sony's InfoLITHIUM® battery system enables you to see the percent of power remaining, so you can keep shooting in confidence.

PlayMemories Home supplied software5

Free, easy-to-use PlayMemories Home image management software automatically installs onto Windows PC’s for Sony Digital Camera users. Download photos and movies onto your computer then view, organize, edit, retouch, print, burn to disk, share or upload to social networking websites.5

Supplied accessories
