Diminutive

The 3N is a wee bit smaller than the NEX-F3 it replaces.

Flexible flash

The 3N's flash tilts back for more effective flash exposures.

Zoom on board

The body has a zoom switch that allows the camera to operate more like a point-and-shoot for zooming when equipped with a power zoom lens.

Self portrait

Like the F3, the 3N's LCD flips up and automatically reverses and enters self-timer mode for self-portraits. The grip is smaller than the F3's, though, which I thought was a little insufficient.

No downward tilt

The LCD flips up but frustratingly, doesn't tilt down.

SD card where it belongs

Rather than inconveniently placed in a battery compartment, the SD card slot is on the side.
