The 16.1MP APS-C size HD image sensor, the same sensor format that Sony builds into their full-sized DSLRs. With 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor, Sony's APS-C sensor size delivers high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.
Fast Hybrid Autofocus.
The NEX-6 is as fast as the world you're trying to capture. Sony's advanced Fast Hybrid AF combines two technologies for outstanding performance: Phase detection autofocus for quick response that is ideal when tracking fast-moving subjects and contrast-detection autofocus for added precision. It's a perfect match that delivers fast, precise, focusing anywhere and everywhere.

This eye-level, through-the-lens, viewfinder begins with 2359K dots for amazing resolution and high contrast ratio for massive depth while the OLED reduces motion blur to a bare minimum.
