Sony NEX-3N

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.13x Zoom

The Sony NEX-3N makes the step up from point-and-shoot to interchangeable-lens camera system as seamless as we've ever seen, employing a simple but effective user interface and placing a zoom lever right on the camera body. Perhaps more importantly, the NEX-3N -- backed by its relatively large APS-C-sized sensor -- takes great photos that outpace some higher-end mirrorless models, and even some DSLRs. While experienced photographers may focus on the camera's shortcomings, and will probably only consider it as a compact backup, entry-level shooters will love how easy the camera is to use, how fun and fast it is to shoot with, and how much bang for the buck the NEX-3N delivers.

Sony NEX-6

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.13x Zoom

Squeezing into Sony's compact system camera lineup between the acclaimed NEX-7 and the NEX-5R, the NEX-6 stands on its own as a high-performing hybrid -- marrying exceptional speed and image quality with more consumer-friendly features and controls. And though the NEX-6's "Fast Hybrid AF" system lags somewhat behind higher-end DSLRs, it's nonetheless pretty fast and decisive in most situations. Lightweight and compact, sharp and fast, advanced and easy-to-use: What more could you want from a camera at such an affordable price?

Sony NEX-7

24.3 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.06x Zoom

The top of the line Sony NEX-7 is a compact system camera that offers enthusiasts excellent control over camera settings, as well as a built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder. The biggest news, though, is the 24.3 megapixel APS-C sensor that shoots at up to 10 frames/second with incredible image quality, plus Full HD video. The Sony NEX-7 is easily the best camera Sony's ever made.
