You can change the functions assigned khổng lồ this button from within the setup menu. The NEX-6"s đứng đầu plate marks the biggest departure from the other NEX cameras that Sony has released so far. Viewed from the rear and starting from the left, there"s an ISO standard hot-shoe that accepts generic centre-contact flash units, which is great news for strobists & anyone using standard hotshoe-mounted accessores. Dedicated Sony/Minolta system flashes that have a non-standard foot can be mounted with the help of a separately sold hot-shoe adapter. Sheltered underneath the housing at the front of the hot-shoe we find a number of connector pins that allow users to mount a range of proprietary Sony accessories, which is why the company calls this accessory port a "Multi Interface Shoe."Next khổng lồ this accessory shoe is the NEX-6"s built-in flash, which has essentially been lifted from the NEX-7 (though Sony quotes a somewhat wider angle of coverage for the new model). Lớn pop up this flash you need khổng lồ press a dedicated button at the top of the rear plate – in use we have found this button lớn be a little fiddly, requiring a rather strong press to vày its job. A clever hinged thiết kế allows the flash to lớn be raised high above the lens lớn avoid red-eye issues, something we have found to lớn work very well. The flash settings can be modified from within the Camera menu, while the AE Lock button can be reprogrammed lớn provide easy access khổng lồ flash exposure compensation. This is seldom needed though – as long as your subject is within range, the flash provides consistently good exposures, no doubt thanks lớn Sony"s access lớn Minolta technologies such as ADI (Advanced Distance Integration). Our only gripes with this flash are the low guide number (GN 6 in metres at ISO 100/21°) and the fact that it cannot act as a commander for wirelessly slaved system flashes – even though the camera itself has the capability, you still need a compatible hotshoe-mounted external unit to lớn use that feature.Bạn đang xem: Sony Alpha Nex 6 ReviewOn the right-hand side of the vị trí cao nhất plate – still viewed from the rear – we find one of the biggest novelties of the NEX-6 compared to other Sony NEX cameras – a mode dial. Aside from standard shooting modes lượt thích Programmed Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority và Manual, this dial has separate markings for Intelligent Auto, Superior Auto, Scene Modes and even Sweep Panoramas. The chief difference between Intelligent auto and Superior auto is that in the latter mode the camera might decide lớn shoot a quick series of images for automatic HDR exposure blending if it determines that the luminosity range of the scene is wider than the dynamic range of the sensor. The mode dial itself is very stiff, so your chances of inadvertently switching to lớn another shooting modes are extremely low. On the flip side, this stiffness means that you may need a thumb and a finger lớn change modes – if you try too hard to turn the dial with your right thumb only, you might end up spinning the control wheel underneath the mode dial too, thereby unwillingly changing the aperture, for example.TopPop-up FlashPutting aside the omission of the AF/MF toggle, the rear plate of the Sony NEX-6 looks remarkably similar to that of the NEX-7, the majority of it taken up by the large articulated LCD that stretches from the base to lớn the top plate. The Sony NEX-6 offers switchable framing lines, a live histogram and a dual-axis màn chơi gauge display in both the LCD screen & the viewfinder, helping you lớn compose your image và keep horizons straight. The NEX-6 also has a clever eye màn chơi sensor that switches off the rear screen"s info display as you bring your eye close lớn the excellent viewfinder, although be aware that this might cause a slight inconvenience when shooting from the hip if your body blocks the eye proximity sensor.One of the most useful ways to set up the EVF and LCD is to lớn compose your shots with the former & use the latter as an interactive status screen. In this view, you can kiểm tra all of the camera"s important shooting settings at a glance, & even modify them by first pressing the Function button & then moving about the screen using the navigation pad. This is important as the thực đơn system of the Sony NEX-6 is rather illogical – e.g. The metering mode is found in the Brightness/Colour thực đơn that from the look of the icon that denotes it initially appears khổng lồ be for adjusting screen brightness only. By using the rear screen as an interactive status display you can mostly save yourself from having to lớn delve into the menu. The LCD is hinged but only flips up & down – you cannot fold it out as on some competing models. Also missing is any sort of touchscreen functionality – while many of you will never miss this, we think it"s a pity that you cannot phối the active focus point by cảm biến as on the NEX-5R for example. Also, given that the Sony NEX-6 offers built-in Wi-Fi it would have been nice lớn be able khổng lồ enter passwords và other text via an onscreen virtual keyboard the same way you vì on most smartphones.Above this display is one of the NEX-6"s main advantages over its principal rivals, a high-resolution XGA OLED electronic viewfinder identical khổng lồ the one found on the NEX-7. Offering 100% scene coverage, a bright, high contrast image and a high magnification, the NEX-6"s EVF is so good that we used it for the majority of our shooting in both good light and bad, a real testament to its quality. For us the built-in EVF is one of the main attractions of the NEX-6 when judging it against the compact system camera competition. The placement of the finder in the upper left corner of the backplate is another plus point as it allows you khổng lồ look into the EVF without smashing your nose against the rear screen – unless you"re left-eyed, of course. Still on the topic of the EVF/LCD, the Sony NEX-6 has an excellent focus peaking feature available when you are using the camera in manual focus mode. This function enhances the outline of in-focus ranges with a specific colour (red, yellow or trắng depending on user preference) in the viewfinder or on the rear screen. The peaking màn chơi can be fine-tuned by the photographer via the cài đặt menu.SideFrontLike the NEX-7, the Sony NEX-6 has three unmarked, context-sensitive “soft” buttons on its rear plate that change their functions depending on what mode, screen or thực đơn you are in. The uppermost button usually takes you khổng lồ the main menu, whereas the lowermost one allows you to modify the image unique setting (in most modes) or change the active focus point if Autofocus Area is set to lớn Flexible Spot. The third unmarked button is encircled by a scroll wheel that you can use to lớn set the shutter speed or navigate menus. In Playback mode, this button is used to lớn quickly zoom khổng lồ 1:1 pixel view to kiểm tra for critical sharpness. The top, right, bottom & left parts of this wheel can also be used as navigation buttons, much lượt thích a classic four-way pad. In Record mode, four different functions are mapped unto this navigation pad including Display, ISO, Exposure Compensation và Self-timer / Drive Mode.New to lớn the Sony NEX-6 – versus the NEX-7 – is its built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. This gives you a number of options. With the free Play Memories smartphone app, you can control the camera remotely from your điện thoại cảm ứng via Wi-Fi, although in our experience the control options are quite limited for the time being. You can see the camera"s live view feed on your phone"s screen, phối exposure compensation và take a picture remotely but that"s it basically – and communication between camera và phone can be quite slow too. It"s also possible khổng lồ hook the camera up lớn an existing Wi-Fi network – though as noted earlier, the lack of touchscreen functionality means entering passwords isn"t fun – và access Sony"s Play Memories service if it"s available in your country. This in turn allows you to download Play Memories camera apps lớn the NEX-6. Some of these camera apps are free and potentially useful, such as Direct Upload which enables you khổng lồ send selected photos from your camera directly khổng lồ Facebook via Wi-Fi. Not all apps are không tính tiền though, which is all the more surprising given that the selection of available apps is rather limited at the moment.Memory thẻ SlotBattery CompartmentApart from taking still photos, the Sony NEX-6 is also capable of shooting videos in either AVCHD or MP4 format. The HDTV-friendly AVCHD videos can be either interlaced or progressive, and offer a variety of frame rates. They can also be burnt lớn Blu-ray disks or DVDs using the supplied Play Memories trang chủ software. By contrast, MP4 videos are easier khổng lồ edit & share on a PC – if not with the Play Memories home program – và are recorded as 1080p video clip files at a frame rate of approximately 30fps, with AAC sound. Speaking of sound, the Sony NEX-6 has built-in stereo microphones but lacks a standard microphone jack, meaning you cannot use a third-party external mic to record audio with your movie clips. đoạn phim recording can be initiated at any time by pressing the dedicated, camcorder-style đoạn phim record button. This button has been relocated from its original position on the NEX-7, presumably because it was too easy lớn push accidentally. The new position of the button carries no such risks – in fact the button is now quite difficult lớn reach và certainly not comfortable lớn operate.By entering Playback mode via its dedicated button, you can review your photos & videos – though curiously, not both at the same time. You have lớn go into the menu lớn select whether you want to lớn play back your photos, MP4 clips or AVCHD videos. This can be surprising at first và mildly annoying in the long run. Do lưu ý that if you have the 16-50mm nguồn zoom attached lớn the camera, it will retract into its housing if you spend too much time in Playback. This also means that when you go back to lớn Record mode you"ll have to lớn wait until it extends again, meaning you might miss a fleeting moment. Not only that, but when the lens does extend it will invariably default to the 16mm position, even if you"d had it set lớn a different focal length before it retracted.The camera is powered by a proprietary lithium-ion battery that can be charged in-camera via USB. A short mains cable is also provided along with a small adapter/transformer, but if you plan on buying a spare battery it"s advisable khổng lồ also invest in an external charger, otherwise you won"t be able khổng lồ use one battery in the camera while the other is charging. Image QualityAll of the sample images in this đánh giá were taken using the 16 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 5Mb.During the review period, the Sony NEX-6 produced images of excellent quality. Most photos were well focussed và sharp, with good detail throughout the frame. High-ISO performance is pretty impressive courtesy of a fairly big APS-C sized sensor & a good image processing engine that reduces noise in JPEGs without sacrificing too much detail. (JPEG shooters bởi vì not have the option lớn turn noise filtering completely off.)The supplied Sony E PZ 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS nguồn zoom lens has a tendency for vignetting, particularly at the extremes of its focal range; but that aside its performance is better than expected. The NEX-6"s pop-up flash might be weak, with a rather meagre guide number of 6 at ISO 100/21°; but as long as the subject is within range it tends to produce spot-on exposures with no noticeable red-eye. The in-camera HDR exposure blending feature works very well in contrasty light. It only works for JPEGs and for still subjects, but does produce some very effective results.Sony"s now tried-and-trusted Sweep Panorama is still a joy to lớn use. The 11 Picture Effects quickly produce special looks that would otherwise require you to spend a lot of time in the digital darkroom, while the 6 Creative Styles provide a quick và easy way khổng lồ tweak the camera"s JPEG images. With a maximum exposure time of 30 seconds & a Bulb mode, the camera offers lots of scope for creative night photography. The SteadyShot anti-shake system built into the 16-50mm lens works well when hand-holding the camera at slower shutter speeds. Perhaps the only fly in the ointment is a somewhat sub-par tự động white balance performance under overcast skies và in artificial light, but this can be circumvented by taking a manual WB reading and/or shooting raw.Xem thêm: Hướng Dẫn Cách Viết Bản Kiểm Điểm Vì Không Thuộc Bài Cũ Cho Học Sinh Cấp 1NoiseThere are 9 ISO settings available on the Sony NEX-6.

Here are two pairs of 100% crops – the right-hand images have had some post-capture sharpening applied.Original (100% Crop)Sharpened (100% Crop) File QualityThe file chất lượng settings available on the Sony NEX-6 include Fine & Standard for JPEGs, & you can also opt for ARW, Sony"s proprietary raw image tệp tin format. Here are some 100% crops which show the chất lượng of the various options.16M Fine (100% Crop)16M Normal (100% Crop) 16M RAW (100% Crop) FlashThe Sony NEX-6 has a little pop-up flash with a guide number of 6 in metres at ISO 100/21°. The flash settings are Autoflash, Fill-flash, Slow sync & Rear flash sync, with Red-eye reduction available in the cài đặt menu. In the best Sony/Minolta tradition, flash exposures are generally excellent as long as the subject is within range. The NEX-6 can also trigger wirelessly slaved system flashes but you need a hotshoe-mounted commander unit for this as the built-in flash cannot act as a master.These shots of a trắng coloured ceiling were taken at a distance of 1.5m. As you can see the E PZ 16-50mm OSS lens suffers from some vignetting, especially at the wide kết thúc of the zoom range, & this is accentuated in the flash shots.Flash Off - Wide Angle (28mm)Flash On - Wide Angle (28mm) Flash Off - Telephoto (75mm)Flash On - Telephoto (75mm)And here are a couple of portrait shots.

The example below demonstrates how close you can get lớn the subject, in this case a Compact Flash card. We have also included a 100% crop to show you what the chất lượng is like.MacroMacro (100% Crop)NightThe Sony NEX-6 lets you dial in shutter speeds of up to 30 seconds and has a Bulb mode as well for even longer exposure times, which is very good news if you are seriously interested in night photography. There is an optional long-exposure noise reduction function that can be activated to lớn filter out any hot pixels that may appear when extremely slow shutter speeds are used, though I found no need for this when taking the photograph below at a shutter speed of 30 seconds, aperture of f/11 at ISO 100. We’ve included a 100% crop for you lớn see what the unique is like.NightNight (100% Crop)SteadyshotThe Sony E PZ 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS power zoom lens boasts Sony"s Optical SteadyShot feature, which is essentially a lens-based image stabilisation system. When enabled from the Sony NEX-6"s menu, this feature allows you lớn take reasonably sharp hand-held shots at slower shutter speeds than other digital cameras (or a non-OSS lens). To lớn demonstrate this, we took two photos, one with SteadyShot and one without, at 1/25th of a second at the 75mm (equivalent) over of the zoom range. As you can see from the 100% crops below, Optical SteadyShot can mean the difference between a usable shot and an unusable one.Shutter speed / Focal LengthSteadyshot Off (100% Crop)Steadyshot On (100% Crop)1/25th / 75mmHigh Dynamic RangeHigh Dynamic Range (HDR) mode is Sony"s solution for capturing more contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining two exposures into one image, with an auto setting and six different strengths available. The examples below demonstrate the difference between a single exposure and an HDR image created from two photos taken 6EV apart.OffOn (6EV)Intelligent Sweep Panorama ModeThe Sony NEX-6 has a Sweep Panorama mode allowing you to take panoramic images very easily by "sweeping" with the camera while keeping the shutter release depressed. The camera does all the processing và stitching automatically. The main catch is that the resulting image is of fairly low resolution – this is something you need to lớn be aware of if you are looking to print your panoramas.Creative StylesThe Sony NEX-6 offers six so-called "Creative Styles" including Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset và Black-and-White.StandardVivid PortraitLandscape SunsetB/WPicture EffectsSony"s Picture Effects are similar to what other manufacturers gọi “magic” or “art” filters.
