The Sony Alpha NEX-6 is a full-featured, compact mirrorless camera targeted towards advanced amateurs and enthusiasts. It houses a 16.1MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor with integrated hybrid autofocus system. Utilizing both 99 phase detection and 25 contrast detection AF points, the NEX-6 provides fast, accurate performance in both still and video shooting. With an ISO range of 100-25,600, it provides the user with extreme flexibility in even the lowest of light. The NEX-6 also sees the addition of built-in WiFi connectivity through Sony’s PlayMemories apps for iOS and Android smartphones / tablets. These various apps allow users to install additional functions to the camera such as wireless image transfer and wireless remote shutter release via live preview.
Like previous compact NEX cameras, the NEX-6 has a variety of specialty modes like Sweep Panorama, Auto HDR, and Hand-Held Twilight, providing automated in-camera image merging. You’ve also got the 7 Picture Effect Modes for simple-to-use instant results. It shoots full HD 1080P video at up to 60fps, with the option to shoot in the more “cinematic” 24fps if desired, It records in the AVCHD codec with a max clip length of 29 minutes, and features a built-in stereo mic for in-camera audio recording.
The NEX-6 inherits the high resolution OLED electronic viewfinder from its big brother the NEX-7, providing users with a rangefinder-like approach to composition. It also offers a 3.0" 921K-pixel tilt-able rear LCD for shooting at extreme angles. While it doesn’t get the advanced Tri-Navigation system of the NEX-7, it does gain a dedicated Mode dial and quick navigation dial for much improved setting adjustment over previous generations. Its programable Fn button and repositioned movie record button offer a more user-friendly button layout, with the built-in pop-up flash providing quick fill. One huge improvement with the NEX-6 is the new standard ISO hot shoe which allows compatibility with not only third-party flashes, but a wide variety of strobe triggers and accessories that where previously unavailable for use with NEX cameras. In the hot shoe, Sony included a row of specialty contacts for communicating with future accessories for advanced operation, yet still made it compatible with the industry standard (TWO HUGE THUMBS UP!!!). The NEX-6 uses both the same battery and memory card format, allowing previous users smooth transition to their latest model. It’s rated for approximately 270 shots per charge using the EVF, and 360 shots for the rear LCD.
Please Note: The NEX-6 is not compatibile with previous generation Auto-Lock flashes without using an adapter. We do not rent this adapter.
