Sony NEX-6 review: can a pocket-sized camera finally kill your DSLR?
7 January 2014
Summary: I still use a DSLR. Unlike my colleague Dan Seifert (and a handful of other staffers at The Verge), I've never been willing to sacrifice the speed and control of my Nikon D7000 to get a smaller, lighter camera. It's really not an image quality issue — Sony's NEX lineup typically takes excellent pictures, as do a number of Micro Four Thirds cameras.
Pros: Excellent, powerful controls, Great images and video, Small body is still easy to use
Cons: Wi-Fi is effectively useless, Lens ecosystem still lags competition
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). The kit lens has a good built-in optical stabilization system that reduces shaking and blur in images (including panoramas) and movies.
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. 50,000 and we would strongly recommend people consider this as an alternate to entry level DSLRs.
Pros: Compact body with excellent ergonomics, Sharp and detail rich images, Onboard Wi-Fi and apps support, Built-in tiltable flash
Cons: Movie button is placed awkwardly, camera options are scattered through several menus
Excerpt: It's been more than three years since Sony entered the mirrorless camera race with its NEX-3 and NEX-5. Since then, Sony has expanded its NEX-series with the NEX-7 occupying the top position, with the 16 megapixel NEX-6 next in line.
Summary: NEX-6 Review Summary : Squeezing into Sony's compact system camera lineup between the acclaimed NEX-7 and the NEX-5R, the NEX-6 stands on its own as a high-performing hybrid -- marrying exceptional speed and image quality with more consumer-friendly features and controls. While it gets a bump down in resolution compared to the NEX-7, the 16.1-megapixel APS-C sensor still delivers photos with sharp detail and good color, contrast and exposure.
Pros: Pros : Very good image quality; More consumer-friendly control setup than NEX-7 but more advanced (actual Mode dial) than step-down models; OLED EVF and 3-inch tilting LCD monitor provide viewfinder flexibility; Fast and decisive AF on stationary subjects, and good continuous AF on normal moving subjects; Full HD 1080p video recording at up to 60p.
Cons: Cons : Hybrid AF system speed and accuracy still lags somewhat behind higher-end DSLRs; Wi-Fi features still rudimentary (join the club); LCD is not a touchscreen; User interface foibles.
Summary: , with the large and bright viewfinder giving it a significant advantage over its viewfinder-less rivals. At a slightly lower price NEX-7, but with a similar feature set, it's also good value for money if you envisage using the viewfinder and/or the flip-out LCD - otherwise, there are slightly cheaper comparable options.
Excerpt: 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. The Sony NEX-6 features an APS-C-sized 16.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor coupled with the BIONZ image processor.
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 this model. Sony’s line of lenses still doesn’t match the selection you can get in the Micro Four Thirds format, but recent additions have been promising.
