Sony NEX-6 Review

26 September 2015
  • Summary: When I first found out that Sony came up with yet another mirrorless camera segment with the introduction of the NEX-6, I asked myself if it was really necessary to have so many different cameras to offer. Without a doubt, the mirrorless camera market is growing very fast.

Digital Camera Review: Sony Alpha NEX-6

14 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Stepping up to the high-end for entry-level/enthusiast cameras adds significantly to the price, but the extra money is worth it for people chasing great image quality and versatility. The NEX-6 offers excellent performance and speed bolstered by a 16.1MP APS-C sensor (same size as DSLRs).

Sony Alpha NEX-6 Camera Review

6 April 2013
  • Summary: The NEX-6 is one power-packed mirrorless camera. It's got Wi-Fi, an OLED EVF with a crazy resolution, a tilt-swivel screen and great ergonomics. At the moment, the NEX-6 is one impressive camera for under Rs.

DP Review
29 March 2013
  • Summary: The NEX-6 offers a highly attractive combination of excellent image quality, enthusiast-friendly ergonomics (including a mode dial--a first for the NEX-series), a 'real' hot shoe, an OLED electronic viewfinder, and useful features like Sweep Panorama and Auto HDR.

Sony Alpha NEX-6

PC Magazine
28 March 2013
  • Conclusion: The pricey-but-well-rounded Sony Alpha NEX-6 is an excellent camera for mirrorless enthusiasts, but it doesn't quite edge out the entry-level NEX-F3 as our Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: Compact kit lens. Built-in EVF and flash. Sharp, tilting LCD. Excellent high ISO performance. 9fps burst shooting. Standard hot shoe.
  • Cons: Slow to start and shoot. Kit lens could be sharper. No dedicated battery charger. Some camera apps cost money.

  • Summary: Sony's popular Next Generation, or NEX, series already includes the flagship NEX-7 and the WiFi-capable NEX-5 . Instead of replacing either model, Sony engineers decided to split the difference and create a new camera, the NEX-6 , which features the best technology from both cameras.
  • Pros: Superior Auto provides outstanding image quality, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, Hybrid AF is lightning fast and accurate, Excellent overall image quality, BIONZ processor allows for great burst rates and special shooting modes, High quality LCD is easy to see in all li...
  • Cons: Multi Interface shoe does not accept an external microphone, Higher ISO settings are very noisy, LCD screen tilts but does not rotate, Cannot use the ONE lens ring to focus and zoom at the same time

Camera Test: Sony Alpha NEX-6 ILC

Pop Photo
1 February 2013
  • Summary: The ILC market continues to evolve rapidly, and the NEX-6 fills a spot that Sony hadn’t yet addressed. Considering how many photographers we’ve encountered who have described the NEX-7 as being just a little too expensive for them, we’d expect that a fair number of avid shooters will be won over by...
