Best digital camerasUpdated April 18, 2014 10:36 AM PDT
As the name implies, here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board. To make it here, a camera really has to blow our socks off. That doesn't happen very often. If it did, our notion of "best" wouldn't mean much, would it? So check back periodically to see if any new models have left us barefoot and speechless.
Best mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera under $1,000
Sony Alpha NEX-6
The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers an as-yet-unbeatable package of image quality, performance, and design, even for its rather high price.
Best prosumer interchangeable-lens camera
Olympus OM-D E-M1 (Body Only)
One of the fastest, most feature-laden cameras you can buy for less than $1,500, you really need to spend some quality time going through all the settings before using the Olympus OM-D E-M1.
