No cabe duda que Sony lo ha vuelto a conseguir con la nueva NEX-6. Este pequeño cuerpo de objetivos intercambiables ha sabido reunir lo mejor de sus hermanas para crear así un escalón más en la familia NEX, algo impensable viendo los modelos que...

Sony NEX-6 review: it's the whole package, for just shy of a grand

 

It may be priced a bit out of reach for some, but Sony's NEX-6 is the company's best mirrorless model yet.

Built-in OLED EVFDedicated mode dialExcellent battery lifeArticulating LCDSolid, comfortable build

Sluggish start-up with compact zoom lens

In 2012, we've seen an abundance of fantastic mirrorless cameras. We were blown away by several offerings in 2011, it's true, but this year's lineup has really upped our enthusiasm for the category. Sony's just one of the manufacturers driving that...

Sony Alpha NEX-6 shines

 

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.

Sony Alpha NEX-6

 

When it entered the mirrorless market with the NEX-3 and NEX-5 back in 2010, Sony, along with Panasonic and Olympus, saw vast potential to attract the millions of compact camera users who wanted better image quality but without the bulk of a DSLR....

Very good image quality and high ISO performance ; High resolution OLED electronic viewfinder ; Articulating 920k dot LCD display ; Built-in Wi-Fi allows for photo sharing to smartphones, computers, Facebook, and more; camera can be remotely controlled...

Best image quality obtained from RAW images (due to fairly strong noise reduction) ; Many controls still accessed through clunky menu-driven interface ; Movie recording button has gone from too-accessible (NEX-7) to inaccessible ; Some apps (such as...

The NEX-6 offers a highly attractive combination of excellent image quality, courtesy of Sony's proven 16MP sensor, enthusiast-friendly ergonomics (including a mode dial - a first for the NEX-series), a 'real' hot shoe, an OLED electronic viewfinder,...

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...

Sony NEX-6 review: can a pocket-sized camera finally kill your DSLR?

 

I still use a DSLR. Unlike my colleague Dan Seifert (and a handful of other staffers at The Verge), I've never been willing to sacrifice the speed and control of my Nikon D7000 to get a smaller,...

Excellent, powerful controls ; Great images and video ; Small body is still easy to use

Wi-Fi is effectively useless ; Lens ecosystem still lags competition

It nearly perfectly balances size, power, quality, and price

Sony Alpha NEX-6

 

The pricey-but-well-rounded Sony Alpha NEX-6 is an excellent camera for mirrorless enthusiasts, but it doesn't quite edge out the entry-level NEX-F3 as our Editors' Choice.

Compact kit lens. Built-in EVF and flash. Sharp, tilting LCD. Excellent high ISO performance. 9fps burst shooting. Standard hot shoe.

Slow to start and shoot. Kit lens could be sharper. No dedicated battery charger. Some camera apps cost money.

Auto Portrait Framing and Clear Image Zoom options are both located in the Camera menu, but are only active if you're shooting in JPG mode. The former works automatically, saving a cropped version of a portrait alongside your original shot—both in full...
