My biggest gripe with the Nex-6...
Dec 12, 2012

They switched it to micro usb (which is very convenient)  but then made the decision that the camera should be charged through it.

Now, this might seem better for some of you that get irritated by having to remove the battery to charge but I'm incredibly frustrated by it. You have to be a million times more careful now when charging as the camera has to sit there to be charged. It also reduces the life of the camera as micro usb ports tend to wear out after extended use, as every cellphone over a year old can attest.

I realize the answer is a simple one: just buy a regular wall charger, but that adds an extra step and extra cost to my camera purchase.

I'm not complaining that Sony added the ability to charge over usb, it can be quite useful, I just wish they included a regular battery charger like they do with every other camera.

Aside from that, this is an amazing upgrade over the 5n.
