The trick of sensor shifting to achieve 4x the native resolution of the sensor is neat, but a very similar (or much better) result can be achieved by stitching together a series of overlapping shots. For landscapes I have successfully created images of more than 36000 x 15000 pixels stitching 45 shots. The stitches are discernible and it's a lot of work, both in the field and behind the computer. But stitching four shots of 16 Mp into a 64 Mp image really isn't a big deal.
For macro photography (and small studio stills) that won't work though.

Every camera below the 1D level is a compromise, and the best camera is the one I have with me. More often than not that's my iPhone. But when I'm too lazy to carry a DSLR and still hope to catch something my iPhone does't, my compromise includes some zoom without a lot of weight and bulk, and many of these so-called enthusiast cameras have too little zoom to be useful. The right compromise for me is the Stylus 1, plenty zoom, a little larger sensor than a 1/2.3, bright lens, lovely viewfinder and very pleasant general handling. I suppose the Casio EX-100 is very similar - a little more compact, but no viewfinder (and not available everywhere).

Is there a way to list all gold awards? Or have a list of scores of cameras?
