Sony NEX-6 or NEX-5R?
Nov 8, 2012

Hi everyone,

I need some help deciding which camera to purchase....

We have a new baby coming in the Spring, and I want to upgrade from my current point-and-shoot to something better to help capture the memories.  My wife and I both are not huge into photography by any means, but we want a really nice camera that is easy to use and compact enough to easily carry around in her purse or diaper bag.  After doing some research, I think i've landed on going with a Sony NEX camera, but I can't decide on the model. Good choice?

Seeing how the majority of our picture and video taking will be of the baby (guessing mostly indoors), which would be the best choice?  I see the 6 has a pop up flash included, which makes me think that would be better for the mosltly indoor shooting?  However, the touchscreen on the 5R seems like a nice feature for us non-serious photographers to quickly and easily focus on what we want to capture (the EVF isn't a selling feature for me).

Help?

Thanks!
