The Best-Selling Mirrorless Cameras for August 2013


The Best-Selling Mirrorless Cameras for August 2013

Summer is winding down, the days are getting shorter, and mirrorless cameras have been travelling the globe in the hands of holiday-making photographers and enthusiasts alike. To see which ones sold the best on Amazon during the month of August 2013, check out the Top 3 list below!

This month, we have a rather unsurprising entry in first place–the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5KK. Why unsurprising? Well, it has received a huge price slash on Amazon due to the release of the G6. Once nearly $700, it is now priced at under $400 with the kit lens included. As for the specs, it includes AVCHD Full HD (1080p), ISO Sensitivity 160-12800, 16MP Live MOS sensor, 920K dots Free-angle touch LCD and a Venus Engine. If you’ve been looking for a Lumix, this is your big chance to get one for an excellent price.

The Sony Nex 6 continues to have a firm grasp on photographer’s hearts, maintaining its second place position 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 $800, this camera is a great deal especially for those who enjoy dabbling in both photography and video-making.


Taking third position is another NEX–the brand new Sony NEX-3n which we tested just a couple of months ago. That it has entered the Top 3 is no surprise to us; it is by far one of the most versatile cameras in its price bracket, with a 16.1 MP Exmor APS-C sensor, Full HD movie shooting 60i/24p, 180° tilting LCD screen, built-in flash, up to ISO 16000 sensitivity and up to 4fps continuous shooting. It has also been dubbed the smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera on the market by Sony.
