New Sony Alpha NEX-F3 and SLT-A37 images leaked

Images and specifications of two new Sony cameras have emerged after photos from a dealer event in Indonesia were posted online.

Though the original post has been taken down, these images have been reproduced at the Sony Alpha Rumors website. The 16.1-megapixel NEX-F3 looks like a modified version of the NEX-C3 with a larger handgrip, and an LCD screen that can be tilted at a 180-degree angle, similar to the Samsung MV800.

Unlike previous NEX iterations, which use a bundled external flash, this mirrorless camera sports a built-in flash. We think this new NEX camera strays from Sony's typically sleek design concept, but its new screen configuration sure looks like it'll come in handy for more accurately framed self-portraits.

Also leaked is the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 SLR, which should feature a similar 16.1-megapixel image sensor used by the NEX-F3. Boasting an ISO range of 100 to 16,000, the A37 should also feature the company's proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology, which is said to provide continuous focus on subjects in burst modes.
