Get the DSLR look (and feel)

The NEX-6 and NEX- 7 come packed with the features and functionality you’d expect from a DSLR camera – we’ve just made them smaller.

See every detail

Experience for yourself the brightness and clarity of the XGA OLED Tru-Finder. Boasting 2,359K-dot resolution and outstanding contrast, this superb viewfinder reveals every subtle nuance of a scene with remarkable accuracy. Craft your composition with real-time preview of adjustments to exposure, white balance, creative picture effects and even defocusing effects, so what you see is literally what you get. Fast OLED response virtually eliminates motion blur and residual images when tracking moving subjects or viewing recorded movies. In addition, a digital level gauge displays camera roll (left/right tilt) and pitch (front/back tilt).
