Every professional photographer prefer DSLR, a perfect DSLR user don’t want to go with a smaller camera, but NEX-6 can change the choice of a DSLR user. The Sony’s NEX-6 camera is definitely excellent in terms of picture and video quality, today I present Sony NEX-6 review to thetechhacker audience.
I personally carry Canon EOS 600D SLR every time in vacation, the latest Sony NEX-6 has changed my habit. Sony introduced a Wolverine of point and shoot and a DSLR. It is a affordable DSLR alternative at a price of $799.99.
The price is defined for a average camera buyer and looks and quality is used by a professional photographer. I’ve spent my quality time with NEX-6 yesterday, I personally totally satisfied with picture quality in day and night conditions.
The main advantage of mirror less camera is easy handling. Especially I feel very comfortable when handling NEX-6. The camera finishing also perfect, back of the camera is hard and buttons are placed decently. The dedicated button for video recording is very handy for instant recording. The top wheel is also very convenient and represents aperture priority mode.
Back of the NEX-6 has physical buttons for flash, video recording button, AEL Button and 3-inch, tilt-angle LCD screen.
The main attraction of NEX-6 is Wi-Fi, but it is failed to attract users. The main drawback of NEX-6 Wi-Fi connectivity is it needs same local network, you need to connect smartphone and NEX-6 on a same wireless network.
However, Sony integrates six apps in the Camera to direct upload to various services. This can be somehow helpful to manage direct uploads to famous image services without using smartphone or a laptop help.
Performance wise NEX-6 is superior when compared to similar price range group of camera’s. NEX-6 is capable of five or six shots per second in continuous mode. I spent one hour continuously on NEX-6 and taken nearly 600 photos, and two times changed the battery’s.
Image quality of NEX-6 is very accurate and correctly saturated. It has ISO level 100 to 25,600. Which means it is very convenient for day and as well as night shooting modes.
Video Quality of NEX-6 is decent and clear. The camera weight is so light and easy to handle when shooting a video on the move. The zooming of lens in video mode is very quick and the microphone quality is nice.
