Nikon’s compact interchangeable lens camera line, Nikon 1, has met with decidedly mixed success. Its small-size, extensive features, and reasonable pricing have made it a popular backup or “pocket-size” alternative to a full-size DSLR. However, Nikon’s choice of a relatively-small 1” sensor in the cameras has reduced their image quality to that of a high-end point and shoot (like the Sony RX-100, that features the same size sensor).

Sony NEX-6: King of the mirrorless cameras?

Sony Alpha NEX-6 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Zoom Lens (Black)Mirrorless is one of the fastest growing segments of the camera industry. While DSLRs and point and shoots have begun to lose their luster, these mid-size, mid-range alternative cameras have a growing fan base. Among mirrorless cameras, Sony has taken something of a high-road, with a relatively large APS-C sensor. Combined with state of the art features, that has made Sony’s NEX family market leaders.
