Sony Nex-6 High ISO Testing – Raw VS Jpeg – ISO 100 – 25600 – Sample Photos, 100% Crops

Sony Nex-6 Review

I had some time today with the Sony Nex-6 to test out the High ISO capabilities of the New 16.1MP Exmor APS-C Size CMOS Sensor. I covered from ISO 100 all the way till ISO 25600 in both Jpeg and Raw!!

I’ll let you be the judge and hold my comments about the high ISO performance to the closing remarks area πŸ˜‰ I used a tripod, self timer, and custom WB, so the colors should be fairly accurate and edges sharp. I also exported as jpeg’s with No Post Processing at all other than re-size for the web and 100% center crops.

Make sure you click on the photos to see the 100% Version as they are around 1200px and highly detailed.
I also included the un-cropped versions of the High ISO 12800 and 25600 photos. This way you can see all the colors and the picture as a whole if your curious.

Click on the Photos for the 100% 1200PX version!!!

Closing Remarks

As you can clearly see from these High ISO Sample photo as, the Nex-6 performs incredible well in my opinion. All the way toΒ  ISO 6400 and even ISO 12800 is possible usable! At ISO 25600 the color starts to shift and the noise is very noticeable. I would still use it for BW though if need be as the noise often works well for that type of photography.

Very impressed with these results and the RAW files look incredible in Lightroom 4. These are the first Raw files I’ve taken believe it or not. I will be shooting raw from now on most likely except for the special modes that require jpeg of course.
