Sony Alpha NEX-6

Sony for sure made a huge step for itself in the mirrorless camera industry, and the incredible Sony Alpha NEX-6 won't be an exception. Additionally, while it may look like just another Rangefinder-style mirrorless, Sony has packed a large number of features into the Sony Alpha NEX-6 remarkable camera body. Sony Alpha NEX-6 has a Sony E lens mount, and presently there are 83 native carefully crafted lenses available for this mount. Thanks to its very short flange focal distance, choices of adapting glasses from other mounts are almost limitless, and this can save your money. This is a remarkable upgrade to the Sony Alpha NEX-6 solid 10.0 fps continuous shooting via the use of Fast Priority Continuous mode, which is very useful. If the images are simply going on the web then ISO 25,600 is outstanding, though even with noise reduction off, there are some details that surely do get missed. 99-Point AF System Cameraman can choose single point, continuous, dynamic or upgraded 3D autofocus modes to adapt to any situation from static peoples to dynamic sports. For video, you can record MPEG-4, AVCHD videos at 1920 x 1080 (60, 24 fps), 1440 x 1080 (30 fps), 640 x 480 (30 fps). The camera works with NPFW50 batteries, which has enough for 360 shots. The solid dials are well laid-out, with the buttons being of a nice size and comfortable to find my fingers when you’re holding the grip. Sony cameras have numerousness lenses and unusual customized cases and a wide variety of grips available for them. The Sony Alpha NEX-6 is an excellent image taking device and tool in the hands of the right photographer. If you already have bought another camera system, consider it as a backup.
