Questions & Answers

QUESTION

Which camera should I get?

(By the way, I'm not only a newbie to the forums, but to interchangeable lens cameras) I currently have a Canon Powershot SX500 and I'd like to get an upgrade. Preferably to a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. If you look at my vsco site, you can see that I don't necessarily have a preference in what I photograph (I take pictures of animals, landscape, food, buildings, etc.) so the camera would have to be pretty versatile. I also would prefer if the camera is at least somewhat portable and image quality is very important. My price range is at $800 max. Some cameras that caught my attention were the Samsung NX Mini, Olympus Pen Series, Olympus OM-D E-M10, Fujifilm X-A1/M1, and the SONY Alpha NEX-6. Any suggestions / opinions?
