About the Sony NEX-3N

The Sony NEX-3N is the world's smallest and lightest cameras of its type10Included in its remarkably compact body is a large APS-C image sensor for superb image quality and convenient built-in flash. This all-round performer features simplified operation thanks in part to a 180-degree tilt-able LCD screen - ideal for self-portraits - and a new zoom key. There is also intelligent Auto Object Framing, a new function that makes it easy for anyone to obtain perfectly composed photos for a wide variety of scenes.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
