Revolving around an 18.0MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor, the Canon EOS M10 (with 15-45mm Lens for $599 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama) is capable of producing clean, well-detailed imagery in a variety of lighting conditions. A native sensitivity range of ISO 100-12800 is expandable to ISO 25600 for shooting in low-light settings and a continuous shooting rate of 4.6 fps is ideal for working with moving subjects. The sensor and processor also enables full HD 1080p video recording as well as a Hybrid CMOS AF II focusing system that is equally fast and precise.
The Sony A6000 (with 16-50mm Lens for $648 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama) is a super-compact mirrorless camera that’s about half the size and weight of a typical DSLR, yet it has the same size APS-C sensor as most DSLRs. It features a 24.3MP sensor and BIONZ X image processor to produce high-resolution still images and full HD movies with marked low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 25600. And Sony A6000 has the world’s fastest auto focus. For capturing crucial moments that go by in a blink, the A6000 can shoot 11 photos in one second. The interchangeable lenses and E-mount system make the a6000 more versatile than almost any other camera on the market.
