J1

Verge score: 5.8

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GF5 is the successor to the GF3, and rather than making sweeping ergonomic changes, Panasonic just added its latest technology to the camera. The GF5 features a totally redesigned, 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor, plus the latest iteration of the Venus processor, and the two team up to offer some pretty impressive specs — like ISO range up to ISO 12,800, and 0.09-second autofocus. You can also now focus on as small an area as a single pixel, which Panasonic says makes the autofocus more accurate as well. The camera shoots 1080i video at 60 frames per second in AVCHD, or 1440 x 1080 in MP4.

Description

The J1 is the less expensive of the two cameras that represented the Nikon's entrance into the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market. The new Nikon 1 series introduced a new sensor size and a new lens mount (dubbed CX and Nikkor 1, respectively). Most notably, the J1 can take advantage of all Nikon F mount lenses when used in conjunction with an optional adapter. The J1 also features 1080p video recording and a 1200 FPS slow motion mode. The camera also has the ability to take stills during video recording.

Samsung's NX20 is a mirrorless camera with built-in Wi-Fi and uses i-Function, NX mount lenses. The NX20 features a 20.3-megapixel, APS-C-sized CMOS sensor, a 3-inch AMOLED rear display, 1080p video recording, and optional GPS for geo-tagging photos.
