Camera is good... Accessories not so much

zachary mcgurk, Amazon

  • Summary: Once (if) the send me a back up battery that fits the camera (the one they sent is too big) I will edit and increase the rating on my review. Other than that, the camera is awesome but not worth the extra money if included accessories don't work and/or are the wrong size.

5 days after return period was over, camera no longer works properly.

  • Summary: --- updated 2013-06-10 --- Problem detecting lens lasted several days, then suddenly no problem. Two days later, got the non-ucommon "Reinsert memory card" error. Card is good. Multiple cards report same failure, but work fine elsewhere. Cannot even format in camera due to error. Formatted fine on computer as well as another camera. factory re-set the camera, problem persists. Sony says I need to send in for repair.

Missing the obvious

E2Ws, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: Does not support tethered capture to laptop. Since there's no real technical reason for this, it seems to be an oversight or a marketing decision. As such, the camera does not suit my needs and I returned it. Really, really disappointed.

  • Excerpt: Like many I am looking for a replacement for my 5D mIII that I find I'm leaving home too often due to its weight. Having tried and returned 2 Fuji's - X100 and X1 Pro, great colour but unacceptably slow focusing - I thought the Sony NEX would fit the bill. Over the Xmas holiday I had borrowed a NEX 7 and was generally impressed with it.

Sony NEX should be recalled

Dimon, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: sony NEX is a rubbish camera which has problem with lens wiggles around the camera body and causes clicking sound. It can cause lens not to be recognized by camera or become unresponsive. If you shoot video this annoing sound passed into video, if you zooming during video and lens wiggles it can cause recording to stop on its own. I’ve got NEX5N and NEX6 and returned both of them. It is a joke!

Dont buy it if you are upgrading from other nex

  • Summary: camera came without a proper battery charger. it came with a USB charger which use camera as charging device. So if you have a spare battery, no use for that. Also this camera only support the battery that came with the camera. Other nex batteries are not compatible. Good thing about this camera its new design, view finder and power lens. But totally not worth the money.

Massive Design Flaw

D. Symonds, Amazon
12 February 2014
  • Summary: Great camera and lenses, (see other reviews) BUT there is a massive design flaw. When in HDR or Auto bracketing modes you cannot use the self timer or an electronic shutter release, EXACTLY THE TIME YOU NEED THEM TO AVOID VIBRATION!!! It's only when you start to use the camera that you discover this glaring design flaw, then it's too late! With my Canon SLR kit, I can set the camera on the tripod and release the shutter via the self timer thereby negating any vibration.

Usel

Berrko, Prisjakt
13 April 2013
  • Summary: VARNING! I grunden en bra kamera men många exemplar av den här kameran lider av problem med hybrid autofokusen. Googla på "Sony Nex-6 back focus". Problemet gör att kameran fokuserar någon cm bakom motivet. Om man tex fotograferar ett ansikte så blir ansikte och ögon i ofokus men öronen i fokus... Trots att problemet är bekräftat av väldigt många Nex-6 ägare så hävdar Sony att det är inom specifikationerna och ett "normalt" beteende och byter inte ut kameran.
