Following on from a spy shot posted earlier in the month that revealed the snapper for the first time, the fresh set of images (which first appeared on Digicame Info) look to be leaked from an official source, showing off front, back and top-side shots of the camera.

Digicame Info also leaked shots of the Canon EOS M ahead of an official unveiling, adding to the feeling of authenticity that accompanies the pro-looking shots.sony_nex-3n_mid.jpegLooking set to be an entry-level mirrorless camera, it’s a design that looks a fair bit more compact than that of the NEX-F3 that precedes it.sony_nex3n_b1.jpegOther than the removal of a bit of heft, the other significant change sees a zoom-lever added around the shutter button, given a little more tactile control over the 16-50mm power zoom lens.

In terms of its sensor, the camera looks to house a 16.1MP APS-C sensor, a detail it’d share with the NEX-F3 and 5R.

Still no official word from Sony, but these press shots suggest an announcement can’t be far off. now.
