Sony RX100 vs Canon S110 - pocketability assessment
Jan 11, 2013

Hello everyone,

I know this is a classic dilemma, and the technical pros and cons are mostly well known. In my case, although I was strongly attracted by the superior low light performance of the sony, the relative pocketability of the two cameras was the decisive point.

To better assess this, I knocked up 1:1 models of the two cameras as shown below, and proceeded to try them out in the various pockets and bags in which I might want to carry them.

This exercise quickly forced me to the conclusion that the RX100 was too bulky for my needs.

I had thought my children would like them to play with, but they turned their noses up (kids today...) so if anyone would like to try them out, let me know!
