Very impressive! Seems the RX100 just keeps adding one accolade after another.

Nothing like a DSLR that will fit in your pocket....what's not to love!

Thanks Sony!

Is another Advanced Compact Camera still due in the next month or two with the one inch sensor and viewfinder? Maybe the viewfinder was removed and sensor size kept the same to not create a gap for another camera to still be introduced that would be a direct competitor of the G1X instead of the G12 which the P7700 is intended.

Sdaniella: This is just the basic model
Exhibits all the shortcomings of all basic mirrorless (aka: m43 & NEX)

Definitely proves all mirrorless are more 'entry level' than anything else

As soon as any version is 'prosumer', it's starts to gain greater ergonomic improvement at the price of compactness (witness the bigger m43 on the high end as well as NEX (7), they're all very 'un-pocketable' at that point)

Nothing wrong with being relatively 'un-pocketable' yet lens-option-flexible

It may suit some more than others

Personally, I prefer a larger more ergonomic body of a PowerShot G1X, but instead, a Pro1X(?) version, where it may be a wider faster 24mm FOV (35mm equivalent) lens?

When Canon comes out later with a a prosumer EOS-M-X, that will more likely be better ergonomically like the G1X is now

If in the meantime given limited EF-M lenses, the adaptable EF-S 15-85mm (24-136mm FOV) is the only option I would want if having an APS-C Canon sensor, except, if they come out with an EF-M 15-85

Almost like it was designed with the camera to begin with.

Dougbm_2: Not only is the grip useful but I think improves the look of the camera. Well done Richard.

Agree, but then again that is the case with all the Grips Richard has come out with. There are many imitation on or going to be on the market, but you get what you pay for.

Don't know if it will make any difference to your evaluation, but I would appreciate any comments you might add to the discussion.

Take a look at the following thread which has a good discussion on the cameras reviewed and it might answer your questions:

Based on some of the comments, many seem to think that Sony should have also received a Gold Award for the HX9V, however if you look at the individual areas by which each camera was judged, it is obvious why only the SX230 and S9100 received the Gold Award:

A very impressive comparison. Amazing how Canon and Nikon with the SX230 and S9100 are the current winners in the Travel Zoom Compact class. Not too long ago, everyone was trying to catch up to Panasonic as they were at the forefront of the class.

Congrats on the SX230 and S9100!

Between the S9100 and HX9V, the review highlights for those deciding between these two, the S9100 surpasses for IQ/Low Light/Optics while the HX9V would be the better selection for those users want more emphasis on Video/Movie.

Great selections. All comes down to the individual needs of the buyer.
