The X-Pro1 from Fujifim is mirrorless interchangeable lens camera featuring a retro, rangefinder-influenced design, with an assortment of physical controls adorning the body. The camera uses a similar hybrid optical viewfinder to the X100 that will apparently shift field of view depending on the prime lens attached.

Description

Sony's high-end mirrorless NEX-7 has a full-size, 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor and a built-in electronic XGA resolution OLED viewfinder in its small form factor. When combined with the optional LA-EA2 Alpha mount adapter, the NEX-7 can shoot and autofocus with the full range of Sony Alpha mount lenses. The camera is the first NEX to use Sony's Tri-Navi interface, which allows faster and simpler manual control of shooting functions.

The V1 is the higher-end (and therefore more expensive) of the two cameras that represented Nikon's entrance into the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market. The new Nikon 1 series brought with it a new sensor size and a new lens mount (dubbed CX and Nikkor 1, respectively). Most notably, the V1 can take advantage of all Nikon F mount lenses when used in conjunction with an optional converter. The V1 features an accessory shoe port that allows it to utilize either an optional speedlight or GPS module.
