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.

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.

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.

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.

I am a photography graduate planning my travels to Australia in the next few months and had been saving for a camera for some time. My intentions were to always buy a DSLR however recently i have looking up smaller mirror less cameras but with DSLR quality as i intend to do alot of travel photography as well as extreme sports. Upon reading alot of reviews and watching ALOT of youtube videos i decided to take a gamble.

I was and still am not disappointed. The fact you can change lens on the camera is great, at this moment in time i cannot afford any more than the standard one it comes with, however i spent £15 on a lens adapter and now i can use my old Canon FD lenses from the 1980s (in my opinion still better than any modern lens out today)

I could waffle on about the pros and cons about this camera however i would find myself writing very few cons if any. Overall this is a GREAT camera for photographers, it really produces DSLR quality and the interchangeable lens makes sure you still get that 'photographers look'

The only thing i would suggest if buying this camera is a cap for the camera when the lens is off as it does not come provided and an external battery charger as well as a spare battery. (sometimes can have short battery life if shooting all day)

Don't get me wrong this is great camera and I researched this a lot before deciding on it to replace my trusty old Panasonic FZ28. The trouble is that it is fragile and the software is flaky.
The standard lens failed "cannot recognize lens attach it properly" after 3 months (no idea why, I never dropped it), and I had to buy a new one from amazon. Sony took 5 weeks to fix the one that came with the camera, so it was too late to send the second one back to amazon (30 day max). Going forward I used the amazon lens as the Sony "fix" was actually a refurbished lens which had clearly been dropped and was scratched, plus the zoom was so stiff I could hardly move it- it wasn't my original lens.
Anyway a few months later, on holiday in Spain, the camera bumped ever so slightly into a table leg, and the second lens went on the blink "cannot recognize lens attach it properly". I had to buy another as I was in Spain and didn't bring the first one with me. So now I had 3 lenses. Well the 3rd lens went just before Christmas due to another very slight bump, so now I'm back to the refurbished lens with 2 duds, one of which I have sent back for repair.
Well yesterday the camera went, kindly telling me "Camera Error. Turn power off then on."
So after spending £980 on the camera and lenses, I now have nothing working. A very flaky piece of hardware, I would never buy a Sony again. Trying to claim from household insurance now. Going back to my Panasonic until I can decide what to do.

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.
