Would love to look at the original web pages that your great images come from.

Thanks for posting this interesting news on the forum.

insane if the new flash doesn't fit all Nex cameras

Trying to decide if Sony is crazy enough to bother bringing out a new flash for the Nex C-3 that won't also work on all the other Nex models.

Am not sure I like the new shape - it looks more like a P&S rather then a SLR!

Where did you find these??

More like a P&S? Because the original NEX3 looked so much like a dSLR?

The NEX3 series has always been the "feminine" counterpart to the more masculine NEX5. Even the colours that they come in, like the NEX3 in pink.

Looks like a reskinned NEX3 with the 16mp sensor. 720p only is a shame. No 3.5mm mic input.

That's a pretty nice looking design compared to the NEX-3. It seems as though Sony is taking design cues from the A550 with the silver top deck and shoulder slopes.

I think I'd still prefer the size and build of my NEX-5, although that 16mp sensor is tempting.

Any EVF news, by chance?

Have you heard something about the shutter mechanism??

Let's hope the NEX-7 is a bit more 'manly' ! lol.

Given the type of mics use, i doubt it will make any difference. For better stereo separation, you need a better design.

Probably not, they are likely reusing the same mechanism, esp. on an entry body.

+ Sensor

YES.

Bad grip

Its the NEX3 style, so it stays the same really.. the updated NEX5 will have the deeper grip.

The grip actually looks a bit different. It's a bit more triangular, rather than a thin, horizontal rectangle. I'm guessing it'll handle somewhere in between the NEX-3 and NEX-5.
