Very portable camera. Lots of options.

  • Excerpt: Pros: <br /><br />This camera is very portable, and can fit in your pockets given a pancake lens. Coming from an NEX-7, the single mode select knob takes some getting used to, but does make it alot easier than flipping through the menus to select your mode. <br /><br />The quality of the images produce were excellent, renders colors nicely. This is a great camera for landscapes. <br /><br />The evf is great as well. No lag. and what you see is what you get.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Crazy Deep Menu System, Poor Image Stabilization, Poor in Low Light

Great Camera

Juan Miguel, B&H Photo
14 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Great Camera if you're a point and shoot type. Not adjustable enough for artists. Wi-Fi takes three technogeeks and a fifth grader to download the software and get it working. Dead battery right out of the box. B&amp;H Photo makes it alright. Thanks to them.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Poor Image Stabilization

kit lens is not good quality

Hikmat amin, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: The kit lens isn't impressive. You would think with that price range, the kit lens should perform better, but it doesn't and that bugs me UPDATE: 11/30/2013 After using the camera for a couple of months, I want to say that I am so far happy from its performance, especially for low light situations. I got to practice a bit with the kit lens and it seems to be taking decent quality pictures.

fits in a jacket pocket

JohnO, B&H Photo
17 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I gave this three stars. If set up were better explained it may well have gotten 4. The sensor is really nice but the camera ergonomics are not the best, not even close and the manual is a joke.<br /><br />The kit lens is a kit lens but it collapses back to make a small package when the camera is off or sleeping. Focus peaking works most of the time and the AF system is not bad but a DSLR it is not nor does it pretend to be.
  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Good point-and-shoot upgrade, bad DSLR downgrade

Uncle J, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: Before I begin, let it be known that I come from the DSLR world, I'm what most people would consider a "pro-consumer" or serious enthusiast, I've owned many pro-grade cameras, my last one was the Canon 5Dmk3, which cleaned out my bank account along with some L lenses, I love the 5Dmk3, and I know that no cropped-frame camera can (yet) come close to it, so I'm not here to compare the NEX-6 to a pro-grade body. Why the NEX-6? or any mirror-less compact {powerful} camera?

Extremely good... but not great

Jason M. Stone "UX Designer", Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: Since everyone's needs and expectations from a camera are different, a word about who I am. I'm what one might call a photography enthusiast. I bought my first digital camera (a 1 megapixel HP Photosmart C30, which I find absolutely hilarious now) in 1998 and my first DSLR (a Canon EOS-D60) in 2002.

Pancake zoom failed within 4 months, but body is great

Will "wt888usa", Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this, along with the 35mm f/1.8 lens. I mostly used the 35mm, as the pancake zoom seems to be a little buggy. First of all, it takes a while to startup, as it seems to need to go through the focal range first before allowing me to use it. Also, every now and then, the lens won't startup correctly, so I have to either turn the camera off and back on, or I have to take the battery out and put it back in. I don't have this problem with the 35mm.

Good for travel

CameraReady, B&H Photo
9 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Paired with the 18-200 lens.<br /><br />Good: picture quality (compared to a 7D or Rebel or p&amp;s), lightweight (compared to 7D with 24-70 2.8 L lens), panoramic setting is fun, but is a bit narrow vertically.<br /><br />Bad: Small buttons, on/off switch cumbersome, no ability to pick focus points, 18-200 lens causes a shadow when using the flash, very slow to focus,very short battery life.
  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls, Lag / Shutter Delay, Short Battery Life
