NEX-5N successor adds Wi-Fi radio
Among a diverse set of introductions at the IFA expo in Germany, Sony previewed two new imaging products: the NEX-5R mirrorless camera and the Action Cam wearable camcorder. The 5R is the latest model in the company's NEX compact-system cameras, integrating a 16.1-megapixel APS-C sensor, a new Bionz engine, and a Wi-Fi radio for direct sharing via several apps.
Full specs of Sony's mirrorless NEX-5R leaked ahead of debut
Sony's upcoming NEX-5R that will be officially revealed on August 29 in London has been spotted in an official photo and all of its specs revealed thanks to Sony Alpha Rumors. The camera, alongside the NEX-6, made the rounds at the FCC earlier in the month as well, though this photo is much more official. The NEX-6, alongside the A99 and VG900, are due to be revealed at a different event on September 12.
Sony NEX-5R and NEX-6 leaked again
The Sony NEX-5R has been leaked again, this time with photos of the new mirrorless cameras. Where the previous leak came courtesy of an Sony Indonesian agency product inventory, the latest images come courtesy of Chinese site VR-Zone. While it might have been expected that the NEX-6 might have picked up the additional dial from the NEX-7, it looks as though Sony has given the NEX-5R a boost with the additional function control.
