Sony NEX-6 - for the most demanding travelers
Technology has evolved a lot in the photo / video industry as well. We've gone from film cameras to digital cameras, from movies with 36 frames to memory cards up to 64GB. The compact camera and DSLR industries have evolved greatly.
How many of you do not want compact cameras, but with DSLR functions that can shoot full HD, can be connected to the Internet, easy and easy to use? Sony NEX-6 may be the ideal solution, being a miracle of technology.
The new compact digital camera with interchangeable lenses can satisfy even the most demanding traveler. I didn't have too much time for testing, but it left a very good impression. She is small, practical, photographs well on the move. NEX-6 is suitable for DSLR users who also need a lightweight camera.
When you go on a vacation it is uncomfortable to carry a DSLR, especially since some airlines have charged second hand luggage. So the new NEX-6 may be the right choice. It fits lightly in a luggage compartment, even for the cabin, and can shoot at a quality close to a DLSR.
NEX-6 has many innovative features in common with the NEX-5R, a recently launched camera - from hybrid autofocus to Wi-Fi connectivity and the ability to download camera applications. As with NEX-5R, Wi-Fi connectivity allows easy transfer of photos and videos to smartphones or tablets.
Built for demanding photos, the new camera features the same precise electronic viewfinder and ergonomics characteristic of a DSLR that users find at NEX-7, the cutting edge.
In "Speed Priority Continuous”, NEX-6 automatically switches to autofocus with“ phase-detection ”. Focus similar to that of DSLRs is observed when using the camera for moving subjects, shooting up to 10 frames per second.
Fast hybrid autofocus is available on the following objectives: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS; E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS; E 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS; E 24mm F1.8 ZA Sonnar T; E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS. Updating the firmware will extend the availability of this feature for other purposes as well.

The price side is subjective and approximate 1000 EUR for SONY NEX-6 it seems to me quite a lot.
