Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Fujifilm X-T1 IR, which was introduced in August 2015 is a Advanced Mirrorless camera with a 16.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Sony A560, which was introduced in August 2010 is a Entry-Level DSLR camera with a 14.0MP APS-C sensor. As you can see, A560 is 5 years older than X-T1 IR. Let's see if this age difference between two cameras makes a big difference.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Fujifilm X-T1 IR and Sony A560 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Fujifilm X-T1 IR and Sony A560 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
