While the Sony NEX-7 is incredibly impressive, if you've not got that kind of cash to splash, Sony's outed another addition to the line today. The Sony NEX-5N, a successor to the Sony NEX-5, features a sensor boost from 14.2MP to 16.1MP and slims the magnesium-alloy body down from 24.2mm thick to just 23.3mm thin. The Sony NEX-5N has a 10fps continuous shooting mode just like its bigger brother, comes with a touch-enabled 3in LCD screen and packs a upgraded BIONZ processor that can ramp the ISO up to 25,600. The Sony NEX-5N also includes 1080 / 60p AVCHD video capture and the option of adding an XGA OLED electronic viewfinder (priced at $350 in the US) using the accessory port. There are also full manual controls and the ability to edit your compositions with the in-camera Picture Effects mode. The Sony NEX-5N takes E-Mount lenses and is due for release in September. Sony hasn't put a UK price tag on the model yet but we'll update you as soon as it does. Out September | £TBC | Sony

[gallery] There's a continual battle among camera makers to build the thinnest model in a particular class. Today's champion is the Canon Ixus 1100 HS which the company claims is the slimmest 12x zoom compact to grace the shelves. Its predecessor, the Canon Ixus 1000 HS was already impressively slight at 24mm thick, but the Canon Ixus 1100 HS has slimmed its thickness down to a waif-like 21.99mm. But, of course, we expect more from our compacts that the ability to slip unnoticed into a rucksack.
