World’s Largest Digital Camera Project: Production of the 3.2-Gigapixel Synoptic Survey Telescope Gets the Go Ahead

Adding a dose of visual confirmation to the initial reports from earlier in the week, the first leaked image of the soon to be announced Sony NEX-F3 has emerged courtesy of the DPReview forum member “bibogue.”
As the image above clearly shows and has been reported to be, the NEX-F3 will boast a same 16.1 MP sensor found in its predecessor, the NEX-C3, while adding built-in flash functionality, and, hopefully, carry the NEX-5N’s 1080/60p video capabilities as the AVCHD branding would suggest. Also visible is what Sony Alpha Rumors is reporting as a Samsung MV800-esque rear LCD, which can be adjusted from 0 to 180 degrees.
