Sony Alpha A6300

First and foremost we know that Sony products are of the quality type. The camera then is not exempted from the bunch. The autofocus of this make is blazing fast. The resolution is of crisp quality. The con comes in when there is low light because it has been deemed to struggle in such light. All in all it is in one of the best when it comes to mirror less cameras. It has a 4k video.

Panasonic Lumix GX85

Just like the Sony brand it has a 4k video good performance and the image stability is also good. However it does not have a high sensor resolution. It is a good mid range camera.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7

It has a 4k video with features that are cut off the edge. What gives this camera the ‘it’ factor is the fact that you won’t have to rob a bank to get it, figuratively speaking of course. It has a great electronic view finder.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

The image quality is outstanding and off the roof. With this camera we have a bright electronic viewfinder. The image stabilization is a full 5-axis which in photographic terms means awesome. It has been cited as one of the best values for your money in the market for photography. The add-on battery grip is an added advantage.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85

Its features are a sensor that comes with 16-megapixel and an image stabilizer that is a full 5-axis. Its body is weather sealed and well it will take on right about anything. The downside of this camera has to be the battery life. One site has described it as mediocre, the battery life, that is. It also comes without a headphone jack which makes it not a favourite among the consumers.
