A nostalgically striking design combined with advanced internals and great performance makes the X-M1 one of the top mirrorless options under the $1,000 mark. Fujifilm’s patented APS-C image sensor works visual wonders by capturing detailed and vibrant images, even offering up sharp videos in QuickTime format at 1080p30 or 720p30. In-body image stabilization and solid Wifi connection adds to its prime value.
Sony Alpha A6000
Replacing the stellar NEX-6, Sony’s latest photo-snapper flaunts a dominant spec sheet thats unparalleled to the competition. The newly introduced 24.3MP CMOS APS-C sensor mated with BIONZ X processor speaks for itself, as the winning digital combo is responsible for an insane 0.06 auto-focus speed. Not to mention the 11 fps continuous shooting with tracking AF. NFC and WiFi support opens the lane to capture images via Android or iOS app, which can be used to transfer images over onto a handheld device. The $200 mark down from the NEX is also a huge win.
