Sony NEX-6

 

Despite an excellent electronic viewfinder and built-in Wi-Fi the NEX-6 fails to wow.

Operational speed, Large and bright viewfinder, Tiltable LCD screen, Fast write times

Inconsistent white balance under artificial light, Recessed buttons can be fiddly

Sony NEX-6 review

 

The Sony NEX-6 compact system cameras features downloadable apps

Great build quality ; Built-in electronic viewfinder ; Tilting touchscreen

Nearly as pricey as DSLR ; Uninspired design

Sony NEX-6

 

When we first saw the Sony NEX-6 ahead of its launch towards the end of 2012 we were impressed with how it seemed to encapsulate the very spirit of what, in our view, a compact system camera should be. On the one hand the NEX-6 epitomises what compact...

Built-in EVF, decent image quality, mode dial and thumbwheel, hotshoe, small yet sensible size, sturdy build quality

Battery life needs to be better, low-light autofocus lacks feedback and accuracy, no touchscreen, Wi-Fi not as smooth as we'd like

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.

Hands on: Sony NEX-6 review - Pocket-lint

 

The NEX-6 is a brand new compact system camera that's a lot like a mash-up of the NEX-5R and NEX-7 compact system cameras. It's got the 5R's phase-detection

Sony NEX-6 review

 

Another NEX with Wi-Fi and apps

Wi-Fi and apps ; High image quality ; Range of effects

Screen doesn't twist around ; No touchscreen

Sitting between the high-end Sony NEX-7 and beginner-to-enthusiast level Sony NEX-5R, the 16.1 million pixel Sony NEX-6 is compact system camera aimed at DSLR and DSLT customers who are looking for high image quality in a much smaller body.

Sony NEX-6 review

 

The Sony NEX-6 also takes good video, now up to 1920 x 1080p at up to 50 fps, against the original NEX-5's 1080i at 25 fps. We did find a split second of lag between pressing the record button and video capture, which might crop the start of...

The Sony NEX-6 is exactly what a compact system camera should be. It offers excellent picture quality combined with good usability and lots of features. On top of the usual interchangeable lens system it includes Wi-Fi to beam out its pictures, an...

Sony Alpha NEX-6 review

 

Maybe I'm just getting easier to please as I get older, but Sony's been winning me over recently with its enthusiast-targeted models. The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers an arguably better design and speedier performance than its Editors' Choice...

A fine shooting design, great photo and good video quality, and excellent performance number among the Sony Alpha NEX-6's strengths.

The camera lacks the option to save groups of custom settings, a real irritation, and we wish it had a neutral color preset. Plus Sony's wireless implementation is awkward, and the app system is annoying.

The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers a great package of image quality, performance, and design.

A product gets a Best Buy award if it's the best of its kind that we've seen, but every now and then we're treated with something that's not just better than the competition, but as good as we could possibly hope for. The Sony NEX-6 comes very close,...

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...

Sony NEX-6 review: Small but has the ability to swap lenses

 

Minimalist proportions yet the Sony has the ability to swap lenses in order to improve the variety of your video clips and amateur film-making prowess

Construction of camera body plus supplied lens is rock solid and built to last, tilting high resolution LCD plus touch screen control, built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder with eye sensor

Costs as much as a very good DSLR if buying lens too, NEX range design continues to be blandly functional rather than inspired

We found that the best match for this camera when shooting video was to pair it with the ultra compact mechanised 16-50mm ‘Power Zoom’. The fact that the zoom is automatic rather than adjusted by hand, unlike the EOS 5D Mark III, ensures that framing...
