You have access to a world of apps which give you more ways to get creative with PlayMemories Camera. Find everything from apps for re-touching photos, to a remote control app that lets you use your smartphone to take shots at a distance.

Explore every angle

Looking for a different point of view? A tiltable, touchscreen LCD is fast, intuitive and lets you change settings and find the right mode quickly. Touch anywhere on the screen and the camera will focus automatically and take the shot. And because you can move it up to 180°, it means no more wayward arms in your self portraits, and it's ideal for capturing the perfect shot at difficult angles.

Simple shooting

It’s so easy to take professional-looking shots. There’s Auto Portrait Framing so heads don’t end up squashed against the side of the picture, 3D Sweep Panorama for taking breathtaking wide angle landscapes and Clear Image Zoom which virtually doubles your zoom range. Everything you need to maximize every opportunity.

Get creative

Go on, engage your imagination.The easy-to-use Photo Creativity interface gives quick access to a range of seven different functions and settings via the control wheel including Picture Effect, Background Defocus Control, Soft Skin Effect, Color, Brightness, Vividness and Self Timer or Continuous Advance. The effects of these settings can be viewed in real-time on the screen so you can keep constant tabs on how things are going.

Discover the artist in you with PlayMemories Camera Apps

With 6 apps available and more being added all the time, PlayMemories Camera Apps lets you do more with your NEX-5R and NEX-6, now and in the future.

Images effects

For maximum creativity, Picture Effect+ lets you modify images by changing colours, adding textures or including special visual effects – all without a PC. Transform simple shots into works of art using modes such as Toy Camera or Partial Colour. You can even adjust the level of some effects, or combine multiple effects for total creative control.

If you want to take group shots, the Smart Remote app removes the hassle of the self timer - just connect to your smartphone and you can preview the image on your phone screen while using it as a remote to control the shutter. The photo then appears on the phone's screen, so if your friends had their eyes closed you can take another shot right away without having to run back to the camera and set it up again.

When you capture a moment that must be shared or just want to show off your creativity, use the Direct Upload app to send your photos straight to Facebook or PlayMemories Online. Now you don't have to wait until you get to a PC to make your friends wish they were skiing with you.



Ever had a perfect picture ruined by a passer-by walking in to the edge of the shot, or an awkwardly placed signpost that you can't miss? With the Photo Retouch app you can resize, reframe and tweak the levels, colour and brightness until you get your photos 'just right'.

Sometimes you want to take shots when light conditions are far from ideal. Multi Frame NR vastly reduces noise when shooting in dimly lit environments, resulting in great photos even in low light.

Get great results in challenging shooting situations with Bracket Pro. Just one press of the shutter and your NEX 6 will automatically take three shots of the scene at different shutter speeds, aperture settings or focus points. You can even take one shot with flash and one without.
