Sony NEX-6 Review

Digitaltrends
29 January 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sony NEX-6 is a superior Compact System Camera we highly recommend. It delivers high-quality stills and videos. Like every digicam on the planet, it’s not perfect, but if you’re cognizant of its few limitations and can deal with them, you’ll be a happy photographer/videographer.
  • Pros: Exceptional stills and quality videos, Excellent OLED EVF/tilting LCD, Easy to carry, Just plain fun to use
  • Cons: Occasional AF misfires, Should have a touchscreen LCD, Wi-Fi could definitely be improved

Sony Alpha NEX-6 shines

CNET
20 December 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers a great package of image quality, performance, and design.
  • Pros: A fine shooting design, great photo and good video quality, and excellent performance number among the Sony Alpha NEX-6's strengths.
  • Cons: The camera lacks the option to save groups of custom settings, a real irritation, and we wish it had a neutral color preset. Plus Sony's wireless implementation is awkward, and the app system is annoying.

DP Review
17 September 2012
  • 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. That said, the NEX's user interface isn't for everyone. Having to download (and sometimes pay for) apps can be frustrating, and for best results you'll need to shoot raw.
  • Pros: Very good image quality and high ISO performance, High resolution OLED electronic viewfinder, Articulating 920k dot LCD display, Built-in Wi-Fi allows for photo sharing to smartphones, computers, Facebook, and more; camera can be remotely controlled via smartphone app, PlayMemories App Store lets you add additional features to your camera, Finally a 'real' hot shoe and mode dial, Snappy focusing and shot-to-shot speeds, Hybrid AF system tracks subjects better than jus...
  • Cons: Best image quality obtained from RAW images (due to fairly strong noise reduction), Many controls still accessed through clunky menu-driven interface, Movie recording button has gone from too-accessible (NEX-7) to inaccessible, Some apps (such as Multi-Frame NR and Time-Lapse) are free on previous Sony cameras or competitors; no e-mail app included, Apps take several seconds to load and can be laggy, In-camera raw conversion would add flexibility, Playback confusingly...

Recensione: Sony NEX-6, buona qualità con margine di miglioramento

saggiamente.com
27 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Impossibile non notare che ultimamente si parla sempre più spesso di mirrorless. Questo segmento di mercato è nato quasi come un esperimento, rimanendo in sordina per alcuni anni, fino ad arrivare al vero e proprio boom verso la fine del 2012. In Asia il business generato dalle compatte a lenti intercambiabili è ancora più consistente che in Europa ed America, ma anche in occidente ad ottobre dello scorso anno questo aveva raggiunto circa 1/4 del volume delle DSLR.
  • Pros: Qualità d'immagine molto elevata, anche ad alti ISO (usando i RAW)., Fino a 10fps, Wi-Fi integrato (vedi contro)
  • Cons: Il display non si può ribaltare, Molte funzionalità non sono incluse e si scaricano dallo store (alcune a pagamento!), Il Wi-Fi è poco utile e senza touchscreen è molto faticoso, L'obiettivo è di costruzione povera e lo zoom si controlla male, Manca l'ingresso audio da 3,5mm, Ricarica via USB

  • Summary: Med Sony NEX-6 får man et kamera i mellemstørrelse med mulighed for udskiftning af objektivet (Micro Four Thirds), en vip-bar LCD skærm som gør det lidt nemmere at optage makrobilleder, video i “skæve “vinkler, Wi-Fi – som dog nok er mest “lir” end anvendeligt for de fleste, indbygget GPS og en række andre avancerede features og funktioner.

Sony Alpha NEX-6 Kit 16-50 mm

Absolut Photo
10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Voici le kit de base (ne rien voir de péjoratif dans cette expression) avec le Nex-6 : c'est d'ailleurs le kit qui réconciliera certain avec la philosophie des hybrides censés trouver une compacité que les reflex ne permettent pas. (rappelons que le vrai kit de base est celui qui s'appuie sur le 18-55mm) Ainsi, l'intérêt du zoom 16-50 (qui fera un équivalent 24-55mm) est sa compacité liée au fait qu'il est rétractable et à l'absence de mécanisme manuel. Son défaut...
  • Pros: Qualité d'image, Compacité
  • Cons: Commande électronique du zoom

  • Excerpt: Testbillederne viser, at der er meget lidt at udsætte på billedkvaliteten, som er helt i top for et kompakt systemkamera. I lighed med Canon EOS M har Sony-kameraet kombineret fase- og kontrastbaseret autofokus, men her er den meget hurtigere. Det samme er skudtakten på 10 fps. Den ekstremt skarpe OLED-søger får i hvert fald ikke mig til at savne optisk søger, og på 6’eren har Sony lyttet til kritikerne og lavet væsentlige forbedringer.
  • Pros: Skarp detaljegengivelse, God ergonomi, Strålende søger, Godt udstyret
  • Cons: Mangler bare trykfølsom skærm, Hjørneskarpheden på 16 mm
