It’s the month of July, and as most people are getting ready to go on holiday, many are also trying to figure out which camera to buy to document these precious 2-3 weeks of freedom.
This month, we have a surprising entry in first place. It is the Canon EOS M, the company’s only contribution so far to the mirrorless market. It has been rumored that Canon will soon release a second model, and this has triggered in a significant price drop on the original EOS M. Furthermore, the addition of a firmware that has sped up the autofocus of the camera has made it much more appealing.
The Sony Nex 6 continues to maintain a firm grasp on consumer’s hearts, moving up from third to second place this month. It comes with a 16MP APS-C CMOS sensor, 10 fps shooting, full HD video recording, fast hybrid AF, and Wi-Fi capabilities. Considering its price tag of under $1000, this camera is a great deal especially for those who enjoy dabbling in both photography and video-making.
Taking third position is a new entry in the Top 3, the Olympus Pen EPL-3. It has been knocked down to nearly half its original price on Amazon. Important features include a 12.3 MP sensor, stabilisation technology in the body, blazing speed, full HD video, a tilting LCD screen, and WiFi capabilities. It is a great deal for the number of modern features you get!
