Having recently been replaced by the Sony A6000, the mid-range Sony NEX-6 mirrorless camera remains a good shooter and it is even better when its price is discounted by 39%.
As you have probably figured it out by now, the Sony NEX-6 is the Amazon Deal of the Day for April 29 and it is available for about $550 with a 16-50mm Power Zoom lens kit.
Sony NEX-6 price goes down significantly at Amazon
Amazon is inviting photographers to take their “photography to the next level” with the help of the Sony NEX-6 price reduction that takes the mirrorless camera’s price to exactly $549.99 for a single day.
The MILC is available for this amount along with a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Power Zoom lens. It is an optically-stabilized lens that compensates for hand or camera shakes in order to prevent blurry shots.
The original price of this kit has been $899.99, but those days are long gone now, as the NEX-6 has been replaced by the Sony A6000, which has just begun shipping. Amazon is also selling the A6000 body-only for a price of $648.
About the Sony NEX-6
Sony has launched the NEX-6 in September 2012 as a mid-range mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with support for E-mount lenses. The device sports a 16.1-megapixel Exmor HD APS-C image sensor that is capable of capturing up to 10fps in continuous shooting mode.
This camera comes packed with a Fast Hybrid AF technology with Phase Detection AF support in order to provide “DSLR-like focusing”.
On the back of the Sony NEX-6 we can find an integrated 2.4-million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder providing a 100% frame coverage and a 3-inch 921K-dot LCD touchscreen on the back.
The camera is capable of capturing RAW photos as well as full HD videos at up to 60fps. Another important feature consists of the built-in WiFi, so that users are able to share photos to a mobile device or to remotely control the NEX-6 via a smartphone.
All-in-all, the Sony NEX-6 is still a good camera for photography enthusiasts and Amazon’s price reduction turns it into a very sweet deal.
