Dear editor, now that Christmas is coming. I would like to purchase a CILDC(Compact Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera) for my girlfriend. Well, my budget is kind of limited. So I would like to buy one around $500 considering she is not that professional anyway. Maybe you can give me some good recommends?

Dear reader, since you are selecting a CILDC for you girlfriend, we will take the elements that girls would value while choosing a CILDC. Almost all the girls like to take selfies, so a flip up tiltable LCD is very necessary. As for girls, they would definitely choose something with better look over better function. Considering your budget, I would like to recommend Fujifilm X-M1 and Sony NEX 5T for you.


Sony NEX 5T is the one of the most popular CILDCs produced by Sony. Proceeding the good quality of the former generation, NEX 5T maintains the design of NEX 5R but with NFC. White NEX 5T is extremely suitable for girls. The flip up tiltable touch LCD makes it a prefect device for selfies. On amazon, the price is about $449.99 with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens.


Fujifilm X-M1 is a new product released by Fujifilm. It gains amazing popularity among young users for its vintage look. Also, its performance of photo is satisfying. The flip up tiltable touch LCD is firstly adapted in X-M1. It has two colors, silver and black. Comparatively, silver is more eye-catching than black one. Now on amazon, the price is about $499.00 body only.

And which one is best exactly? As a matter of fact, it is also a difficult choice for me too. If you want a powerful but inexpensive one, Sony NEC 5T may be better. But if you like a vintage look, X-M1 will be your best choice. Besides, to process the photos and videos you took, you may try Leawo products.
