Frank Zappa once said that the world won’t end in fire or ice. The other possibility: it will end in nostalgia. That probably has naught to do with Nikon’s new DF, an advanced digital DSLR with a full-frame sensor designed to evoke the golden age of square, clunky, knob-laden 35mm cameras of the early 1980s.

Fuji’s latest entry into the crowded camera segment referred to as CSC’s (Compact System Cameras), the X-A1 offers the versatility of interchangeable lenses in a small, portable package plus wi-fi and a 16.3 MP optic sensor but what it doesn’t have is the exorbitant price tag featured on many of its peers.
