Sony NEX-3 goes pink on November 19, in accordance with our wishes


We weren’t shy about telling Sony that it ought to bring some of those NEX-3/5 color concepts from Photokina out on the market, and the Japanese manufacturer has clearly taken note. To be fair, our pining was more concerned with the white variant than this pink number, but whatever, a new hue is a new hue. Japanese lovers of small cameras with big sensors and rosé color schemes will be able to enjoy their slice of nirvana on November 19 for around ¥80,000 ($975), while the rest of the world sits and ponders the crazy price. It’s no higher than the standard NEX-3 kit, mind you, which can currently be had in silver, black, or red. And if Sony Japan’s scheme to conquer the female market with a lick of new paint pays off, we might see the pink camera — along with the litany of matching accessories also introduced today — sailing out to new shores as well. One can only hope.

Sony NEX-5 and NEX-3 can shoot 3D panoramas with new firmware


Think Sony ain’t serious about 3D? Think again. The Japanese giant has just outed a promised firmware update for its ultra-slinky NEX series of shooters that will allow users to shoot 3D panoramas. Panorama stitching was already one of the touted features on these cameras, but with a little extra software magic they’ll now be able to collect “depth information” as well. We don’t know how strong a 3D effect you’re going to get, but since this is a free upgrade and a new way to play with your toy, we suggest grabbing the firmware first and asking questions later.
