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.

Mode dial

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.

Control dial

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

Play Memories Camera

With 6 apps available now and more being added all the time, Play Memories Camera Apps lets you do more with your NEX6, now and in the future. For maximum creativity, Picture Effect+ lets you modify images by changing colours, adding textures or including special visual effects – all without a PC. Transform simple shots into works of art using modes such as Toy Camera or Partial Colour. You can even adjust the level of some effects, or combine multiple effects for total creative control.

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'

    5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing camera 20 July 2013
    After 7 years of using Nikon DSLR's I took the risk and sold all my equipment except 85mm f1.8 portrait lens and bought the Sony NEX6.

    Here are few advantages over Nikon D90:
    Obviously it is smaller, excellent for street photography, has tilted screen, excellent ISO range, in camera apps give a bit more creativity, slightly more resolution, although the menu may look complicated for some people or hard to use, offers a lot more than Nikon D90 and can be customised to you shooting style. Shooting hand held in low light, 10 frames per second and seeing the way the photo will look like before you take it are for me the most amassing features. I rarely swich the camera from manual mode. The quality of the photos are pleasing even those of us that are scrutinising the photos to the pixel level. I haven't mention the video quality, exceeds Nikon D90 by miles.

    Where the Nikon D90 excels:
    Autofocus is quicker in most situations, being bigger it is much easier to handle, some people may argue that the ergonomics are better. I would say that it is down to what you are used to. It has far more lenses available in AF mode, but with an adaptor, you can use any Nikon or Canon lens you like in manual mode with the Sony NEX 6 thanks to its magic focus aid.

    If you take Sony NEX 6 with an open mind, get over the frustration of being very small and not focusing as quick as Nikon D90 you won't regret your choice.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    One year on from the NEX7, Sony have released the NEX6 - is it an advance or just filling a gap in the range? I've been using the 7 for the last 8 months and carry it with me most days; I was interested to see how the two would compare as most things about the 7 I really like but it does have a few flaws. In this review I've concentrated on the differences between the two - the resulting images from the 6 are largely indistinguishable from the 7 and in some instances better.

    The NEX6 looks similar to the 7, including the same electronic viewfinder and 3 inch LCD screen from its bigger brother. The most obvious physical difference is the single raised dial on the right hand side of the body which allows the mode to be changed without having to use the rear wheel as on other models. Surrounding the mode dial is a second dial which allows various settings, depending on the current mode. For example, in Aperture Priority mode it sets the aperture value. Some other controls have been adjusted, like the video record button which has moved slightly to the side to make it less easy to enable accidentally, or the multi-function button next to the shutter release, which is now clearly labelled Fn. Personal taste will apply here but I prefer the two-dial layout of the NEX7 whereby I can set aperture or shutter with one and exposure compensation with the other. On the NEX6 exposure compensation is a two-step process using the wheel on the back of the camera. The biggest difference I noticed with the buttons is how much additional pressure is required. For example, the mode dial is a two-finger job to move (a good thing) but the shutter release has a greater travel and the flash button needs a definite finger poke for the flash to pop up. A matter of personal taste once more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars SLR quality with minimal baggage 16 Jan 2013
    By S. Thomas #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    The NEX-6 is small, lightweight, ideal when space is at a premium and doesn't compromise on the quality of still or video footage shots that you can capture (I have been able to put the camera in a pocket without feeling bulked out). The camera is equally strong across both media and avoids the need to double up with kit.

    Automatic options enable the snapshot amateur to produce excellent results without needing to delve into features in depth and a host of shooting options are available via on screen menus for the more exacting or professional photographer. On screen help menus offer the opportunity to become proficient on the fly rather than constantly consulting a printed manual.

    * At a glance

    Pros: High quality across still shots and video. Compact. Built in viewfinder. Simplified ergonomics for snapshots. Integral flash. Motorised zoom.

    Cons: Unlike the NEX-5N the menu is not 'touch screen'. Charging is 'within camera' - no external battery charger is supplied.

    * In the box

    The camera body with 18-50mm power zoom lens attached (no body or rear lens caps included), strap, battery, in-camera charger, detachable cup for the viewfinder, software and a handbook.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: No memory card is included as part of the package so you may wish to consider purchasing one, particularly if this is intended as a gift to avoid disappointment. I use a class 10 card, which offers sufficient speed to ensure video footage can be copied down without errors, as well as a reasonably fast turn-around for individual shots without missing the action.

    * Ease of Operation

    A few camera operations have been simplified for the first time user, such as transfer of some of the menu options to on-body dials.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sony Nex6 23 Sep 2013
    Verified Purchase
    Never thought that I would buy anything other than a Nikon. The V1 changed my mind. This is a much better option. I am enthralled by it. Sure the menus take a bit of getting use to but there are a lot of controls on the camera body that make it simple to use after you have worked through the setups for your shoot. Some lovely touches. More compatible accessories, please Sony!
