PHOTOGRAPHY PRODUCT NEWS
I am often asked, “I want a new camera, what should I buy?”
In my opinion, it doesn’t make sense to purchase a point and shoot camera unless it has manual features because it’s easy to just whip out your iphone.
The new micro 4:3 cameras with interchangeable lenses are definitely worth looking exploring. They are fast, small, lightweight, easy to use and have a lot of very cool features.
Check out the Sony NEX 6 or 7 mirrorless camera and the Olympus OMD. Beautiful images — but the cameras and lenses aren’t cheap. The body and kit lens run anywhere from $800-$1300.
However, if you aren’t a professional photographer or serious hobbyest, they could replace your digital SLR and your back will definitely benefit from not carrying around all that heavy equipment!
Here is a helpful review of the NEX 6.
