Sony NEX-6 review – White balance and colour
Over a number of scenes, be it a sunny landscape or an overcast cityscape, the NEX-6’s colour rendition is faithful. The standard colour mode is punchy, while the vivid setting is even punchier still. Certainly, the vivid setting works well in overcast conditions.
There is the usual complement of white-balance settings, but AWB is reliable for most scenes. For tricky situations, such as tungsten or mixed lighting, or where a single colour dominates a scene, a custom reading is quick to take. This involves selecting the custom WB set option, placing the neutral subject in the centre of the frame and pressing the shutter.
