Earlier this month (February 2013), a rumor started about Sont's NEX-3N camera gaining electronic zoom control.
The new press shots that Digicame Info
has leaked seem to confirm that report.
The website has published the pictures of the NEX-3N mirrorless photo and video camera ahead of the actual product release.
The zoom lever can be seen around the shutter button and will be used with 16-50mm power zoom lenses.
Other things that the press photographs reveal is the compact, minimalistic design with a shallower grip.
The view is in line with the general idea of low-end cameras, though the assumption that a 16.1-megapixel sensor will be used does suggest that the item might not be all that low-end.
Either way, there is still no word on a price or an availability date. We imagine Sony won't drag things on too long though. The cat's basically out of the bag already.
