Sony Announces SLT-A58 and NEX-3N
Sony has announced the SLT-A58, Sony's latest DSLR offering and first to feature 'TRIMUMINOS Color' support, as well as the NEX-3N, the smallest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera with a large APS-C sized sensor.
Incorporating the Translucent Mirror technology which helps subjects stay sharp at all times, the 20.1-megapixel A58 comes with a Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with an improved BIONZ image processing engine for detailed, low-noise stills and Full HD video, plus an extra-wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 16000.
Pick from the choice of 35 interchangeable A-mount lenses (including two tele-converters) and experience flawless images in virtually any lighting conditions, from dimly-lit interiors to atmospheric twilight scenes. Even if you’re shooting handheld, SteadyShot INSIDE keeps pictures crisp and stable, letting you shoot with confidence at slower shutter speeds or higher zoom settings where wobbles are often a worry.
The first-ever A-mount interchangeable lens camera from Sony offers support for new 'TRILUMINOS Color', so you can enjoy ultra-realistic colors when videos and still images are played back on any BRAVIA TV with support for 'TRILUMINOS Display'.
With an easy-to-hold textured grip which fits steadily in your hand, the NEX-3N E-mount camera with built-in flash includes a 3-inch LCD screen which flips through 180 degrees for fuss-free arm's-length compositions. A newly-added zoom lever on the camera body allows smooth, fingertip control of focal length with compatible lenses like the slim, light SELP1650 power zoom.
Weighing about 210g, the camera is great for one-handed portrait framing with the zoom lever adjusting digital zoom when a powered lens is not in use. Featuring the new Auto Object Framing, it judges what's in the scene and automatically crops the shot to create more professionally-framed compositions.
The NEX-3N is also the first NEX interchangeable lens camera from Sony that offers support for new ‘TRILUMINOS Color’. Currently, there is a range of thirteen high-quality E-mount lenses to realize the immense creative potential of the NEX-3N.
The new SLT-A58 interchangeable lens camera and NEX-3N interchangeable lens camera will be available in APAC from April 2013 and March 2013 respectively.
