New Sony NEX compact system cameras
Full HD video
Just touch a button. The NEX-5 compact camera shoots sparkling Full HD (1920 x 1080i) video as high-quality AVCHD files to enjoy on your HD television. The NEX-3 shoots compact MPEG4 HD video clips - perfect for PC storage and web sharing
Sweep Panorama
Unique to Sony, Sweep Panorama automatically stitches together a high-speed burst of frames when you sweep the camera from side to side or up and down. You'll be rewarded with stunning high-resolution panoramas, with a huge field of view.
Pro picture quality
The new NEX-5 and NEX-3 digital cameras feature a DSLR-sized 14.2 effective megapixels Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. Far bigger than the sensor in simple point-and-shoot compact cameras, it's the key to detail-packed DSLR-quality images with extremely low picture noise and beautiful defocus effects.
Beautifully small
The NEX-5 and NEX-3 from Sony offer DSLR-style picture quality and shooting responses in an ultra-compact digital camera that won't weigh you down. With the slim-line 'pancake' lens attached, it's easy to slip the NEX-5/NEX-3 ultra compact digital cameras into a jacket pocket or bag.
