Sony discontinued the Alpha Nex-3 interchangeable lens camera in February, but we might have a successor on the way very soon.
The Sony Alpha Rumors blog has nabbed some leaked promo images, which look very convincing and could really reveal the look of the new Nex-C3 camera with an external flash. It supposedly sports the same 16.2-megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor as the Alpha A55 digital SLR, which is quite the step up for this kind of model. The Nex-C3 should also be ready to record HD video.
Pricing and availability haven’t been around yet, but expect it to fall under the still-available, higher-end Nex-5, which starts at $599.99. That announcement could be a ways off yet as production has reportedly been delayed to the disaster in Japan in March.
