If you recall, I already told you about Sony’s newest NEX camera, the NEX-3N.  However, at the time Sony hadn’t said when or if it would come to the US.  Well, good news.

The NEX-3N will hit US shores this April to the tune of $500.  For your hard earned cash you’ll get a motorized 16-50mm zoom lens and your choice of white or black finish.

The Sony NEX-3N is the smallest and lightest in its category (APS-C sensor), weighing just 210G (without battery or a memory card).  With the battery installed, Sony says you’ll get about 480 shots per charge on its 16.1 megapixel sensor.  The mirrorless camera includes a 3-inch LCD that swivels 180-degrees allowing you to easily capture any angle, or if needed a self portrait.  Sony is also touting the camera’s new Object Framing Tech that said to automatically crop the picture and create a professionally composed shot – color me skeptic.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
