Sony has revealed the newest addition to its NEX range of compact cameras, the NEX-5T, as well as a new SLR, the Sony Alpha 3000.
Although prices have yet to be announced, the two new E-mount system cameras will go on sale in September and Sony has got us all excited by detailing the specifications for the new snappers.
The compact NEX-T replaces the NEX-5R from last year and uses a 16.1 million pixel APS-C sized sensor and a Fast Hybrid auto focus. The Japanese company has also loaded it with NFC and Wi-Fi, letting you use it with your smartphone to remotely take pictures or swap images between devices.
When it comes to the Alpha 3000, Sony has included a 20.1MP APS-C Exmor sensor capable of shooting full HD video alongside the stills.
An electronic "Tru-Finder" gives 100% field coverage and plenty of extra information on the display. You can instantly preview changes to exposure settings and add grid lines to help keep shooting horizontal.
We expect the Alpha 3000 to touch down in the region of £350-£370, which would make it a very affordable choice for those looking to move up to a semi-professional camera.
Both these new cameras use Sony's E-mount lenses. There are currently 18 to choose from, three of which are new additions. These are: Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS for everyday shooting, the E PZ 18 - 105mm F4 G OSS and the E 50mm F1.8 portrait lens.
We're expecting more camera goodness from Sony, and hopefully the other big camera brands, at this year's IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.
