Sony unleashed the Alpha Nex-3 and Nex-5 cameras in various countries across the globe in May, but they haven’t made it to India yet. That may be changing however, as Sony India is preparing to launch a new line of cameras next week, which we can only assume to be the Alpha NEX series.
The cameras aim to capture DSLR-quality photos at the size and weight of point-and-click digicams. Customers will probably have a choice between bundling the standard 16mm or the 18-55mm lens with the camera and purchase the other seperately for hotswapping purposes. Both the Nex-3 and Nex-5 are 14.2 megapixels and while the Nex-3 can capture 720p video, the Nex-5 lays claim to 1080p video recording at 60fps!
Here’s hoping Sony do indeed bring these cameras over because they look to be quite awesome. While both you and I wait for Sony to let the cat out of the bag, you can check out a video that was shot at the cameras’ Malaysia launch using the Nex-5.
