There's precious little not to like about the relatively new Sony NEX 6 and the suite of e-mount lenses it may be equipped with. I recently completed a photo-shoot including some 2400 exposures. My only issue is with the camera's battery. My standard set-up and routine is to photograph only in RAW, 3:2 aspect ratio, and very quickly playback each photo for the histogram and focus only (takes about a second or two). The camera power goes into sleep mode if unused for more than one minute. (I tried using the maximum power save mode, but this is a total nuisance, given how quickly it shuts down and the time it takes to reawaken.) Under these conditions, I am not getting more than about 125 images from a battery charge. I carry three batteries and that is usually enough to keep me going between the availability of charging opportunities.
I think this is pretty dismal energy performance. I have no idea whether the cause is with the camera or the batteries or more likely a combination thereof. Nor do I know whether this is a necessary compromise to achieve the small size and great portability of this camera. However, I'm wondering what the experience and technical thoughts of other users of the NEX-6 system may be in this respect.
