Pro-quality shots, pro-quality control. With the NEX-6, we wanted to put the picture quality, sensor and creative options of a DSLR in camera you can take with you anywhere. It comes with a large 16.1 megapixel APS-C sensor that captures more of the image coming in through the lens and more light (up to ISO 25600) for expert looking pictures. Combine with more than 10 lenses available for the NEX range and you can create striking foreground and background defocus shots, just like on a DSLR.

The missed shot. Every photographer remembers the one that got away. With the latest NEX cameras, you can say “Never again” with DSLR speed auto focus technology. It works in two ways – by locking-on to fast-moving subjects and by contrast detection. The result is faster focusing with up to 10 frames per second shooting – each one perfectly framed. Get clear shots, focused just right, every time.
