Sony NEX-3N & Alpha A58 Digital Cameras Debut In Europe


After months of wondering about what’s next for Sony, the company recently announced two midrange cameras with compact bodies and interchangeable-lens, the Alpha A58 and the NEX-3N, are on its way to European shores.

Sony appears to have merged its A3x and A5x line to produce its entry level SLT line, Alpha A58. The camera has a 20 mp APS-C sensor with an upgraded ISO dynamic range, a BIONZ image processor, a shooting speed of 8 frames per second and a 15-point autofocus system. The A58 also has an 18-55mm, f/3.5-5.6 II kit lens.

On the other hand, the NEX-3N is being positioned as Sony’s go-to point-and-shoot camera with swappable lens. This entry-level shooter comes in a light but sturdy body with a 16 mp APS-C CMOS sensor that can handle 4 fps continuous shooting, a 3”, 460k LCD and a BIONZ image processor with improved low-light and noise reduction capabilities.


Insiders have pegged the two cameras’ price tags to be somewhere between $600 to $700, but so far no set release date has been decided on. Rumors have also been rampant that the A58 and the NEX-3N would arrive sometime in April, but the deluge of information that has come out recently has made people believe the two cameras will be rolling out sooner than expected.
