Sony NEX-5N mirrorless camera gets leaky

Sony camera fans must be wetting themselves with excitement about all the forthcoming goodies dropping from the Japanese giant. First, the teaser video for the Sony Alpha A77 reared its head on YouTube, and now we've got an official looking leaked picture for the mirrorless wonder that is the Sony NEX-5N.

The shiny looking snapper is expected to be officially unveiled by Sony later on this month. It's said to be packing a 16.1-megapixel Exmor CMOS Sensor, an ISO range of 100-25600, 1080p 60p/60i/24p AVCHD 2.0 video recording, a 1/4000 shutter (0.02 seconds shutter lag time), 10 fps shooting, a battery capable of taking more than 430 shots, the same AF speed as the GH2 and a 3 -inch 921k dots touch screen LCD.

There's also murmurs of a new OLED viewfinder with an eye proximity sensor, like the one that you'll find on the Fuji X100.

Nothing official yet though, so as with the A77, we'll just have to sit tight and wait for the big launch....
