Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States and the day after that marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season that ends with presents wrapped in shining paper beneath a tree being opened. Many people have already picked out the gifts that they are planning to purchase, wrap, and give to their friends and family this season. However, if you are stumped on what to get for the photographer in your life, our friends at Sony might have an idea for you with the Sony Alpha NEX-6.
The Sony Alpha NEX-6 is a new breed of camera aimed at helping the novice photographer move more towards becoming an advanced photographer. Called a 3/4 hybrid, this camera comes with a lot of the features found on DSLRs. The 16.1 MP APS-C size HD image sensor actually is the same sensor Sony builds into its full-fledged DSLRs and delivers an incredible mixture of high-resolution, high sensitivity, and clear or blurred backgrounds as the photographer wishes. The Alpha NEX-6 also has on-board WiFi allowing the user to send images wirelessly from the camera to his computer or to the Internet. With the free mobile app, PlayMemories, images can also be retrieved from or sent to smartphones and tablets.
The Sony Alpha NEX-6 also comes with a diverse range of modes and features including 11 picture effects modes, Auto Portrait Framing, auto High Dynamic Range, Anti Motion Blur mode, Face Detection, Smile Shutter, and more. The Portrait Framing, Face Detection, and Smile Shutter are great ways to help you capture the perfect portrait while the effects modes, HDR, and anti-motion blur features bring a crisp clarity to your landscape or urban photography.
Lastly, the built-in pop-up flash, the XGA Tru-Finder OLED, and the Advanced Control Dial help you capture, preview, and alter the settings as needed in order to take the perfect picture.
