Sony NEX-5N Preview

Sony's new NEX-5N builds upon the NEX-5 released last year; however it does not technically replace it. The NEX-5N boasts some new upgrades, along with a redesigned exterior; although the camera still looks very similar to the NEX-5.

For starters, Sony has incorporated a newly designed 16-megapixel Exmor APS-C HD image sensor. Coupled with the next generation of their BIONZ processor, the NEX-5N can capture stunning photos, along with full 1920x1080 AVCHD progressive video at 60 or 24fps. This new sensor and processor combination also afford improved shooting performance, and burst shooting at up to 10fps at full resolution.

Sony has also incorporated a tilting touchscreen LCD, that allows you to control the camera with inputs from your finger tips. However, the soft keys coexist with the touchscreen, allowing you to choose which method is most comfortable for you to control the camera.

Check back in the coming weeks as we update this page once we get our hands on a NEX-5N.
