I just got the Sony NEX-6 mirroless camera. Ever since my trip to Victoria I’ve been looking at the lighter mirrorless cameras as a better travel camera. I wanted a camera that I could carry around, shoot with a good amount of control, but not leave my hand and back aching at the end of the day. After a bit of research I decided to go with the NEX-6, my second choice the OM-D from Olympus was a close contender but just out of my price range, and the placement of the Electronic viewfinder on top gave it a slightly larger profile.
My goal for this camera is to act as a day camera / something I use on days where I don’t have specific shoots and plans. On small weekend getaway it will be my only camera; keeping me light and nimble for the events of the day.
I’m going to test it out next weekend on our holiday trip to New Orleans and will report my findings!
(special thanks to people for early Christmas gifts that went to purchasing this camera!)
