It’s hard to believe that the Sony Nex-6 has been out for almost two years and it’s still at the top of the Compact System Best Sellers on Amazon! And what’s more, it’s still at number ten when looking at All digital cameras.
When I wrote the book about the Nex-6 (sorry, shameless self-plug), I knew it was (is) an excellent camera. But in the last two years, there have been some terrifically competitive cameras released by Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung, Fuji, and even Sony. The Fuji X-E1 with kit lens can be found for around $600 these days. Yet, the little Nex-6 continues to thrive. The Sony A6000 bumped the pixel count up to 24MP and improved the autofocus, yet the Nex-6 is still selling better. I wonder why?
Plus, when you look at the top ten of all digital cameras, you see that Sony has three of those, with the other seven spots filled by Nikon, Kodak (Kodak ?!?!), Canon, and Olympus. Amazing!
Do you think the “Mirrorless Revolution” is finally catching on?
For you Nex-6 shooters, to what do you attribute the amazing success of that wonderful little camera?
And for those of you who may be new to the Sony Nex-6, if you’re having any questions about various features and how they all come together in a logical way, help is available at The Friedman Archives. Gary Friedman and I co-authored a comprehensive book all about the Nex-6/5R/5T. We’ve had great reviews and even offer a money back guarantee if you don’t learn at least one thing. 🙂
