pixel binning for the win!
In reply to IT Troll, Aug 17, 2012

The RX100 uses something called by-pixel technology, which seems to be some unique form of data binning. It all sounds suspect in text, but the proof is in the pictures... there are some serious algorithms working behind the scenes in Sony's Clear Image Zoom and apparently the digital side now too.

Bottom line is that 'digital zoom' isn't such a dirty thing when using a newer Sony. So far the results I have seen in my pictures and those of others have blown me away.

To anyone that is in doubt, go find an RX100 and test it out.
