Lenovo Yoga 2 tablets: Hands on
Sony's big-boy mirrorless camera, the Alpha NEX-6, has finally landed in India and we go hands on to bring you word on why this camera is such a rage the world over.
Sony had been neglecting the Indian photography enthusiast for a while now, but looks like that has all changed. Sony has officially pulled all the stops and announced the Sony Alpha NEX-6’s availability in India (apart from five other cameras). We got a lot of hands on time with Sony’s latest mirrorless offering and it is one impressive little thing.
Packing in a 16 megapixel APS-C sized sensor inside an extremely slim metal body, the Alpha NEX-6 builds upon the lineage of the NEX-3 and NEX-5, the only two mirrorless cameras from Sony that entered the Indian market.
The NEX-6 packs in a hybrid AF system that allows for DSLR like AF tracking while shooting off 10 frames per second. We didn’t get to try out the burst mode with respect to moving targets, but we did spend a lot of time shooting the flower arrangements and models Sony had arranged to be available as subjects.
At first glance, the Sony NEX-6 is a little different from both the NEX-5R and the NEX-7 with respect to the layout of some buttons and dials. The menus are identical to the other NEX cameras, so if you’ve used one before, it would be a breeze getting the hang of the NEX-6. We weren’t able to shoot the camera in RAW mode, but the JPEGS out of the camera look absolutely beautiful. The camera itself is very light, which can be great if you’re using a small lens, but if you decide to stick a larger lens on it, then the whole combination has a tendency to become a little front heavy.
The NEX-6 continues the tradition of a bendable pop-up flash, but also brings with it Wi-Fi connectivity and an ISO range from 50-25,600. There is even an OLED Tru-Finder built into the NEX-6, something the NEX-5R lacks.
Sony has priced the NEX-6 rather competitively at Rs. 49,990 for the kit (including a 16-50mm f/2.5-5.6 lens). The Canon EOS M is priced the same, but also includes a flash. Regardless, Sony’s NEX series has garnered quite a reputation for itself in the mirrorless camera segment and the NEX-6 is one hell of a contender. If you’re looking for a mirrorless camera, we recommend you watch out for our full review of the NEX-6.
