The other day it was rumored that Sony could be announcing a new NEX camera in the form of the NEX-5T. Details of the camera remain unknown, but given that it is part of the NEX-5 lineup of devices, we did not expect it to be a very high-end device, unlike the NEX-7. Well according to the folks at Sony Alpha Rumors, they have learnt that the Sony NEX-5T will actually be somewhat similar to the NEX-5R, albeit with some minor upgrades so we’re not sure if it can truly be called a “successor”.
Essentially the NEX-5T will sport the same hardware, but will come with new features such as NFC (we wonder if it will play nice with Sony Xperia phones with NFC), FN-button control that can also be found on SLT cameras, a new Menu interface amongst other things. This hardly sounds like the most exciting thing, but then again if you found the NEX-5R to be a good camera, then we can only imagine the NEX-5T should be a worthy upgrade. In any case the NEX-5T is rumored for a 13/14th September announcement, so until then take it with a grain of salt.
