Here’s the Fuji Guys in a Super Secret (at least, before September 6th 2012) Video going over the selling points of the new Fuji X-E1, the little brother to their flagship mirrorless camera, the X-Pro1 – and comparing it to the competition.   Namely, the Sony NEX 7 and the Olympus OM-D E-M5, two other high quality and extremely popular mirrorless cameras in the same price range. We’re really excited about the X-E1, which borrows a lot of technology from it’s big brother, the X-Pro1 – which we LOVE –  and the X-E1 shares a LOT of that camera’s features, including [More]
This hands-on look at the Sony NEX 6 by Matt from PhotoNewsReviews includes image samples and side by side comparison to NEX 5 and NEX 7. The NEX 6 squeezes in between new NEX 5R (but adds an EVF and dedicated mode dial that the 5R does not have) and the highly celebrated NEX 7, and actually is a lot like the 7. In fact, it’s almost identical in size and configuration, but the main difference is that the NEX 7 has a 24 mp sensor while the NEX 6 has a 16 mp sensor (and also adds with WiFi). [More]
To launch the new Sony NEX-6, two photographers, Luca Rossini and Mike Palmieri, were recruited to participate in a photography assignment in the wilderness of Kodiak, Alaska. Their challenge was to capture the best photo of the trip, and they were asked to travel with only a single carry-on bag each for all their gear, clothing, etc. Along the way they fully tested the capabilities of the NEX-6, and the experience was documented in a short promotional film called “Into Alaska” (Watch it >>HEREHERE

MirrorlessReviews pits the Olympus OM-D E-M5 against the SONY NEX 7 in a head to head comparison. Part II focuses on Video Recording and Menus. In our opinion, the OMD, wins in movie mode, hands down. Don’t get us wrong, the NEX 7 does record stunning quality video, but there have been numerous reports of overheating issues in video mode, and the 5 point IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) on the E-M5 is just superb! They’re pretty much neck and neck in pricing, but if you tack on another $300 and go for the extra battery grip for the E-M5 [More]
MirrorlessReviews pits the Olympus OM-D E-M5 against the SONY NEX 7 in a head to head comparison. Part I focuses on handling, size, build quality, screens and EVF. In our opinion, to get the most out of the OMD, from a handling standpoint anyway, you really need to check out the battery grip. It adds a substantial amount to the grip surface as well as the battery life. The E-M5 and NEX 7 are two of the big boys in the mirrorless camera arena, along with the Fuji X-Pro 1 and the 2 year old (but pro and indie video [More]
When it entered the mirrorless market with the NEX-3 and NEX-5 back in 2010, Sony, along with Panasonic and Olympus, saw vast potential to attract the millions of compact camera users who wanted better image quality but without the bulk of a DSLR. Today, however, as the smartphone market continues to erode compact camera sales we see camera makers increasingly turning their attention to a smaller – but potentially more eager – group; enthusiasts who want a lighter, more compact DSLR alternative, but still demand the level of customization and camera control to which they’ve grown accustomed. As such, we’ve [More]
