Sony Alpha NEX-6 Review

5 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. 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

Digital Camera Review
29 March 2013
  • 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.

Sony NEX-6

Imaging Resource
19 February 2013
  • 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.

Sony NEX-6 Review

What Digital Camera
11 February 2013
  • 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.

It doesn't look like a pro-level camera, but can it work like one?

18 December 2012
  • Summary: Sony's NEX lineup is kind of a microcosm of the camera industry in 2012. Once you graduate from a point-and-shoot up to a mirrorless camera or a DSLR, odds are good that you're going to get a camera that takes great pictures. What you're paying for within the market is resolution, low-light performance, and controls.
  • 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

Sony Alpha NEX-6

PC Magazine
3 December 2012
  • 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.

Sony NEX-6 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The Sony NEX-6 mixes high-end build quality and control with a consumer-friendly feature set. The inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity opens up the NEX-6 for a number of in-camera editing controls and direct image sharing. All in all, the Sony NEX-6 handles well and produces excellent images, but not quite to the same standard as the NEX-7.
