Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens
This is the best mirrorless camera that gives the biggest bang for the buck. If you're looking for something below this price point, you're going to get 20.1 megapixels at best, along with lower resolution video.
For the uninitiated, mirrorless cameras are really great because they weigh less yet result in such amazing pictures. Take this on a hike with all of your gadgets and it'll weigh less than many DSLR cameras alone!

Details for the curious and those new to the topic:
Mirrorless cameras are growing in popularity, making it far easier for those photographers who hike up a summit just to take gorgeous pictures for us to admire.
They are relatively less expensive than DSLR cameras, and yet they are as flexible as far as interchangeable lenses. New photographers may find mirrorless cameras to be easier to use than a DSLR with less need for manual operation.
My personal preference is for 24 megapixels at a minimum which is why I recommend this fine specimen.
