This camera looks awesome, but I can't afford to buy into a new system. I just want a Canon camera that can shoot 1080P at 60 fps without having to use Magic Lantern.

I think this is also on sale at Amazon, but without the memory card.

why not just use ML? you even get focus peaking thrown in with a great intervolvometer

totally diff cameras. you cannot change lenses with rx100; it has a smaller sensor; worse low light performance - it's really a sort of camera that you want if you must use it out of your pocket.

nex6 better in every way except it's bigger.

From my knowledge, this camera has more customization than RX100, RX100 is a point and shoot camera with a big sensor (APSC), I RX100 and NEX6 both have APSC size but I'm not sure if they have same exact sensor, NEX6 may have a newer technology sensor.

Edit: Seems like RX100 has a little bit smaller and older technology sensor.

The RX100 has a 1" sensor which is about 1/3 the size of APS-C. The NEX-6 and RX100 are based on the same Sony Exmor technology - the RX100 II is actually more advanced technologically than the NEX-6 because it has BSI.

You're right, my bad. The APSC sensor is much bigger than 1" sensor of RX100.

In the above picture Nikon 1/CX has 1" sensor, so the the image quality of NEX6 will be definitely lot better than RX100.
