Summary: Forget Sony apps. This camera is fantastic, a great step for the user who wants to move up. I have a Sony A-77 which got me back into the big camera and into the SLT system. Since buying this nice, light little camera; hardly use the other. It's reminded me of using a Leica M series. Sony's approach has put a twist into photo taking. The SLT thing. I started with Canons ( G1, G5, G15, G1x..Sigma DP..).
Good Camera--Does What I Want It to Do without Any Fuss

Summary: I always wanted a rangefinder 35mm camera that supported interchangeable lenses back in the days of film. This is an excellent digital analogue. It has a viewfinder which makes taking outdoor pictures in bright light possible. It has a tiltable led display that works well indoors and allows you to hold the camera at waist height like a twin lens reflex. The kit lens, to my eye, is very good. The pictures are sharp and undistorted.
A good and compact camera with EVF good value for money

Summary: EVF was madatory for me and it's own a very good one, it's compact enought to carry it in a pocket ready to shoot in any way. This camera is very easy to use , ok menu are a bit tought, but as soon as you configure it once you don't need to go back in it all buttons and wheels works perfectly and give a very good and intuitive interface. Touch screen don't miss a lot for me. Even if not perfect a very good camera to use day by day.
Summary: The camera itself is incredible which I'd expect no less from Sony! The "extras" that were part of the deal have been the nice surprise. We've used each item & they just add to the overall great experience we are having with our new camera!
Summary: I absolutely love this camera. I currently shoot with canon DSLRs but wanted something smaller and portable. I sold my old canon rebel to buy this and would never look back. It has the same image sensor as my 7D in a far smaller package, and even shoots more fps than the 7D. As a devoted canon user, I was hesitant to move to sony but do not regret this purchase at all. Do I dare say that the image quality and dynamic range is better as well? yup.
Excellent DSLR-like quality in a small and durable package.

Summary: The Sony NEX-6 is an excellent camera for any photo enthusiast looking for great image quality and a compact design. While I have used DSLR's, they are a burden to carry around and to transport, and this camera definitely solves that problem. It is excellent for street photography and still photography alike, and it suits me for the type of shots I take: street shots, architectural details, photos of my artworks/designs, landscapes.
Either buy it, or go full frame. Best. Compact. Ever?

Summary: If you are leaning towards this camera at all, just buy it. There's a reason it's the number 1 seller in compact system cameras. because it's the best bang for your buck. The ONLY features missing from this camera or reasons to hesitate are: *touch screen: once you set up the custom buttons and function menu, you won't ever have to dive into the menu to get at settings, so we're good *fully articulating screen: either a 180 degree flip up or pop out and twist screen...
