Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers a great package of image quality, performance, and design.
Despite small annoyances, the Sony Alpha 6000 is a great overall camera for more advanced photographers who want something smaller than a dSLR, especially if they need the continuous- shooting speed.
The Sony NEX-6 shares photos online and downloads apps, on top of shooting 16.1-megapixel pictures and 1080p video.
The camera delivers excellent photo quality, partly because of a nice sensor and partly because Sony's image processing renders relatively artifact-free JPEGs.
As long as you don't need fast autofocus or great burst shooting, the Sony Alpha ILCE-7R is great, compact alternative to entry-level full-frame cameras from Nikon and Canon.
The NEX-6 has a broader feature set than the NEX-7, but with a similarly well-thought-out design.
The full-frame RX1 compact camera is official, plus the wraps come off the NEX-6 and A99 SLR.
If you're just looking for better photo quality than a point-and-shoot on a really tight budget, but not better performance, the Sony Alpha A3000 meets that criterion.
The company adds a fifth ILC under $600.
It's a great camera choice for high-quality stills and a streamlined shooting design under $800, but the Sony Alpha NEX-5R falls short when it comes to sharing your shots online.
