1. The battery life will get better after you used the battery for a while.

2. Buy a second battery.

3. Turn off the camera when you don't take pictures for a while.

4. Take less pictures, or recharge the battery more often.

My #1 is to set the sleep timer for 1 min. (or less!).  This makes a big difference.  I have an extra battery but I almost never need it.  The number of photos per battery is supposed to be lower on the Nex-6; this is supposed to be due to the EVF.
