With rumors floating around that Sony will be discontinuing its awesome NEX-3 camera, photos of the model that may replace it have just leaked to the Net.

Sporting the same Sony A55 sensor as the NEX-3, the NEX-C3 is rumored to pack in 16.2 megapixel and have the ability to record HD video. Oh, and it'll come with that cool-ass flash. The photos posted to the DP Review forums have been taken down, but there's a gang more at Sony Alpha Rumors.

Camera nerds, get excited.
