Packing light for a holiday but still want professional image quality from your camera? Feast your eyes on the Sony A7 and A7R, two compact digital cameras that boast full-frame image sensors and interchangeable lenses.
The A7 has a 24-megapixel resolution and will start at $1,700 for the body only. The A7R has a higher 34-megapixel sensor, no anti-aliasing filter, and starts at $2,300.
You can get a battery grip for the camera, too. It extends battery life and allows for a more secure grip. There are buttons on the side to help with shooting in portrait orientation. It'll set you back $299.
The cameras are much bulkier than standard compact digital cameras, or indeed Sony's interchangeable lens NEX cameras. They're the smallest interchangeable lens cameras with a full-frame sensor, though.
