Expert performance, effortless control
The NEX-6 has a large APS-C sensor delivering 16.1 megapixel shots, as well as the features you’d expect from a high-end DSLR, like an OLED viewfinder and classic dial controls for different shooting modes – all packed into a compact body. What’s more, with built-in Wi-Fi you can connect to other devices like a smartphone or tablet to share your pictures and upload to Facebook or use your mobile as a smart remote control. You can even download image-enhancing apps that will give you even more ways to get the shot you want.
Sometimes size really does matter. The NEX-6 comes with a huge, DSLR-sized APS-C sensor, packed into the size of a travel camera. This captures more of the light coming in to the lens than other interchangeable lens cameras, delivering pro-quality, 16.1 megapixel shots.
Get the DSLR look (and feel)
The NEX-6 comes packed with the features and functionality you’d expect from a DSLR camera – we’ve just made it smaller.
See every detail
Experience for yourself the brightness and clarity of the XGA OLED Tru-Finder. Boasting 2,359K-dot resolution and outstanding contrast, this superb viewfinder reveals every subtle nuance of a scene with remarkable accuracy. Craft your composition with real-time preview of adjustments to exposure, white balance, creative picture effects and even defocusing effects, so what you see is literally what you get. Fast OLED response virtually eliminates motion blur and residual images when tracking moving subjects or viewing recorded movies. In addition, a digital level gauge displays camera roll (left/right tilt) and pitch (front/back tilt).
Built-in flash for a splash of light
Brighten the scene with this convenient addition. Combined with the high sensitivity of ISO 25600, you’ll never miss a shot even when the lights go down. It also produces alluring catch lights for daylight portraits.
New accessory shoe expands shooting options
Tap into the wide variety of optional accessories with the new Multi Interface Shoe. The NEX-6 system includes external flash units, video lights, adaptors and more. Everything you need when it’s time to expand.
Conveniently positioned on top, the mode dial lets you change shooting modes. Superior Auto, P/A/S/M and others, using only your right thumb and without taking your eye from the viewfinder.
Adjust exposure, ISO, white balance and other settings. The control dial is located directly under the mode dial and provides the same easy operation so you can concentrate on the action.
Fn (Function) button
Adjust the camera without having to dig through menus. Located next to the shutter release, the distinct shape of the 'Fn' button makes it easy to find. Use it during Live View to choose frequently used settings, or to adjust settings in the Quick Navi display, which shows all settings on the LCD screen for smooth DSLR-like operation.
Think fast, shoot faster
Be sure to catch blink-and-you-miss them moments with new Hybrid Auto Focus technology to capture high speed action. It locks into focus as fast as a DSLR and takes photos faster too, making it ideal for spontaneous shots, or for high-speed action. So when you're in the velodrome and the bikes are zooming past, you can be sure your photos will be sharp and crisp.
Get more from your camera with Wi-Fi connectivity
With Wi-Fi built-in to the NEX-6 you can instantly upload your photos to Facebook or Play Memories Online straight from your camera. You have access to a world of apps which give you more ways to get creative with Play Memories Camera.

Play Memories Camera

Get great results in challenging shooting situations with Bracket Pro. Just one press of the shutter and your NEX 6 will automatically take three shots of the scene at different shutter speeds, aperture settings or focus points. You can even take one shot with flash and one without.
If you want to take group shots, the Smart Remote app removes the hassle of the self timer - just connect to your smartphone and you can preview the image on your phone screen while using it as a remote to control the shutter. The photo then appears on the phone's screen, so if your friends had their eyes closed you can take another shot right away without having to run back to the camera and set it up again.
Ever had a perfect picture ruined by a passer-by walking in to the edge of the shot, or an awkwardly placed signpost that you can't miss? With the Photo Retouch app you can resize, reframe and tweak the levels, colour and brightness until you get your photos 'just right'
Sometimes you want to take shots when light conditions are far from ideal. Multi Frame NR vastly reduces noise when shooting in dimly lit environments, resulting in great photos even in low light.
When you capture a moment that must be shared or just want to show off your creativity, use the Direct Upload app to send your photos straight to Facebook or Play Memories Online. Now you don't have to wait until you get to a PC to make your friends wish they were skiing with you.

Direct your own movies with High Definition recording for smooth - professional looking video, thanks to its large sensor.
