( This weekend Sony will be unveiling its brand new NEX Series to hundreds of photographers at the annual IMAGE NATION conference held at UNITEC, Mt Albert.

Sony is one of the key sponsors of the event and has taken the opportunity to introduce their NEX Series to what will no doubt be a very interested audience. The Alpha NEX-3 and NEX-5 feaure the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens digital camera body1, allowing users to effortlessly capture stunning, DSLR quality photos with its new 14.2-megapixel ExmorTM APS-C HD CMOS image sensor and capture HD videos in AVCHD or MP4 formats.

“We are very excited to be a part of this event and have the chance to show our fantastic new range to photographers from across New Zealand. We have an ongoing partnership with the Advertising & Illustrative Photographers’ Association and this event provides us with the opportunity to further extend this partnership”, says Fleur Picot, Sony Digital Imaging Product Manager.

IMAGE NATION gives New Zealand photographers, assistants and students an opportunity to gain a unique and invaluable insight into the minds of some of Australasia’s top professional photographers. In addition, attendees will obtain an immense amount of useful and relevant information about the advertising and editorial media industries – knowledge that can be used to achieve future success in the photographic arena.
