Sorry I'm very new to photography and cameras and I would like to know if this camera is a DSLR? Mar 2, 2015
No. It's a mirrorless digital camera. DSLRs have a mirror that moves out of the way when the photo is taken. Since there isn't a mirror it's a little faster operation than a DSLR, and there's one less part to cause problems. Mirrorless cameras are becoming more popular, provide the same quality photos, and may be used with inter- changeable lens. Some Mirrorless cameras do not have a viewfinder so the user has to frame the photo using the LCD. Others have electronic viewfinders. Electronic viewfinders may be built into the camera, or come as an optional attachment. Mirrorless cameras are generally smaller, and lighter than DSLRs, which many people like if they're walking around with it all day.
Is there a _rear_ lens cap included in the box also? Dec 12, 2014
No. Also no battery charger. However these are available after market for $5 and $15-20 respectively. Since writing my review Ihave used the camera on a hiking trip in the mountains of Morocco. The images were of excellent quality even from the perspective of a person who would usually carry a Nikon D800e. It was a dream to carry so little weight. Also note that this kit is far less expensive than the present hot mirrorless kit, the Fuji Xt1.
Does someone know how to turn of the "clear image zoom". I have disabled it in Settings, but I still see it as an extension of the regular zoom on LCD Nov 15, 2014
To turn off clear image zoom, you may go to menu - camera - zoom and then select the first option (zoom). This will be the default settings when trying to perform zooming that is not smart or clear image zoom. Hope this helps. -Ely
Amazon sells 2 different tutorial books for the NEX6. Which one do you recommend for an experienced SLR photographer who is new to Sony and NEX? Oct 20, 2014
Since you are experienced I would recommend the one by Brian Matsumoto "The Sony Alpha nex 6" I had always shot with Nikon DSLR's and found this guide helpful.
Shutter speed: max is 30 seconds? Bulb while holding down the shutter. But what if you want an hour and walk away? No can do? Thanks. Oct 3, 2014
No can do. This is a semi pro camera. Not too many tweaks. It still gives you beautiful pictures.
Double/multiple exposures - can this camera do that? Sep 25, 2014
I have not tried on mine....few higher end cameras have this functionality inbuilt, but for Nex I guess some Application software could do that.
