Sony NEX-3N Compact System Camera with 16-50mm PZ Lens, 1080p, 16.1MP, 3” LCD Screen
Take the creativity of a DSLR anywhere with the easy-to-use NEX-3N. With a large 16.1-megapixel APS-C sensor, you can shoot detailed images in low light, use the handy 180° tiltable screen for self-portraits or tricky angles, and give your photography that professional look.
This camera comes with a 16-50mm power zoom lens to get you snapping straight away.
- When it comes to camera sensors, bigger really is better. The NEX-3N has a large, DSLR-quality APS-C sensor which captures more light than most other interchangeable lens cameras, so more detail reaches the sensor. The result is beautifully lit shots up to 16.1 megapixels.
- Taking portraits of yourself and your friends is simple. Flip the tiltable screen around 180° and frame the shot to perfection. Or shoot from awkward or interesting angles – it makes it easier to photograph objects up high (like tall buildings) without twisting your neck.
- At just 210g, the NEX-3N body is slim and light, and ready to go where you go, but it also has the capabilities of DSLR cameras twice its size. What’s more, the kit comes with a compact, lightweight power zoom lens so you can be creative anywhere, any time.
- The large sensor has a wide sensitivity range - from ISO 200 up to 16000 - so you can capture warm natural light in low-light scenes without a flash.
- Auto Object Framing automatically proposes a pro-style crop of your original picture. Whether you use the suggested version or your original is entirely up to you.
- Film Full HD at dusk or indoors with a sensor that adjusts settings automatically for low-light conditions. Quickly zoom in and out without losing focus. With a choice of manual or autofocus, and cinematic 25p shooting, you can call the shots when movie-making.
- Includes PZ lens, battery, charger and AC power cord.
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
