Report: Sony at PPE 2011

Unlike most camera manufacturers, Sony has had a very busy year. Not only did Sony refresh its SLT line with the 24MP SLT-A77 and A65, it also expanded its NEX range, adding the 16MP NEX-C3 and NEX-5N, and a new flagship model, the 24MP NEX-7. Unsurprisingly, Sony's stand is buzzing with photographers keen to get their hands on the new products, and try out their blazingly fast capture rates and innovative ergonomics for themselves.

The Sony stand at this year's PPE certainly makes an impression... Every display area is crowded by photographers that want to check out the latest Alpha SLT and NEX cameras.
This is Sony's new flagship SLT camera, the 24MP SLT-A77.  From the back you can see it's hinged LCD screen and control joystick.
And its near-relation, the A65, which uses the same sensor, but offers simplified ergonomics and slightly slower continuous shooting. The A65 lacks the A77's rear joystick and secondary control dial.
The 16MP NEX-5N takes the operational ergonomics of the original NEX-5, but marries them with a more refined GUI (including a touch-sensitive screen) and an improved 16MP sensor. This is the NEX-5N's fold-out, touch-sensitive LCD screen.
And the flagship NEX-7 uses the same 24MP APS-C format sensor as the A77 and A65, in a stylish metal body aimed squarely at enthusiasts  From the back you can see the NEX-7's 'Tri Navi' - 3 dial - interface.
