Sony Czech website leaks NEX-C3 manual
The Sony Czech website has published the instruction manual of the forthcoming NEX-C3. The manual for they yet to be formally announced camera reveals that the it will be more compact than the current NEX-5, although it is fitted with a higher specified 16-megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. The pictures from the manual are also reported to show a control scheme similar to the layout on the NEX-5, though it features new filters including one called Toy Camera and another called Retro Photo.
The NEX-C3 was due to be announced on April 14, but has been postponed due the supply chain effects of the Japan earthquake. It has been rumored that a May announcement is a possibility, which the appearance of the manual seems to suggest remains accurate. When it is released, it is expected to come in black and silver models and include a large external flash. [via DP Review]
