Sony NEX-6 Review

photographylife.com
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
29 March 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: new mode dial, built-in viewfinder and flash, WiFi, full feature set, good performance, above average image quality, full manual exposure control in video
  • Cons: confusing menu system, even with mode dial, still too dependent on menus, poorly positioned "red" movie button

  • Pros: Operational speed; Fast write times; Large, bright viewfinder; Tiltable LCD; Large grip
  • Cons: Recessed buttons; Inconsistent AWB under artificial light; Lack of space between lens and grip

Sony NEX-6 review: can a pocket-sized camera finally kill your DSLR?

theverge.com
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • 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
5 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

Pocket Lint
2 May 2013
  • Conclusion: On the one hand the NEX-6 epitomises what compact system cameras are all about: it's small, light, easier to use than any other NEX model, well built, comes complete with a viewfinder, is fairly nippy when it needs to be and snaps cracking images too.
  • Pros: Built-in EVF, decent image quality, mode dial and thumbwheel, hotshoe, small yet sensible size, sturdy build quality
  • Cons: Battery life needs to be better, low-light autofocus lacks feedback and accuracy, no touchscreen, Wi-Fi not as smooth as we'd like
