Sony Alpha NEX-6

PC Magazine
5 April 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.

Expert Review

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. With each evolution, Sony’s NEX-series continues to improve with broader features and, more importantly, better performance and the Sony NEX-6 is no exception with its hybrid AF system, a real mode dial, standardized hotshoe, and Wi-Fi.
  • 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

Sony NEX-6 Review

What Digital Camera
7 January 2013
  • Summary: The Sony NEX-6 fills an admittedly small gap between the Sony NEX-5R and the Sony NEX-7 , 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.
  • 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

Camera Labs

  • Summary: The Sony Alpha NEX-6 is the latest evolution in the NEX line of mirrorless compact system cameras.

  • Pros: Hybrid AF with phase and contrast detect., 2.3 million dot EVF., 10fps burst mode with continuous AF., Wi-Fi enabled with picture sharing, remote control and downloadable apps., Compact lightweight powered kit zoom.
  • Cons: Lack of touch screen., Poor AF performance in low light., Movie button difficult to press and not programmable.

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

  • 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 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.

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. But on the other it's shy of its potential greatness: the battery life gets sucked away all too quickly due to all the tech on board, there aren't the more advanced features such as a touchscreen that feature in "lesser"...
  • 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
