Excellent comparison! Even more impressive is the RX100 series out for 3 years now, continues to be the best pocket compact camera you can buy.
Just get the RX100 III....
Why??? Should have called it the XQ1.1
SX710 has gone from a 16MP to a ridiculous 20MP.?????
ZS50 is looking very impressive. Dropping the MP will definitely improve IQ.
CaPi: Panasonic on 1st and 4th place? I bought a FZ1000 and I can see why. Doenst do creative shots that well for me - but solid everything else.
Impressive! Not sure why the Canon G7X hasn't scored higher though unless everyone is interested in the Sony RX100 III instead.
Interesting...the top winners as of today:
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 29.6%
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III 26.5%
Fujifilm X100T 18.3%
Rest of the bunch only registering single digits.
Sure there will be plenty of LX100, RX100 III and X100T cameras under the tree this year.
enenzo: There appear to be a clear image ;-) Canon is lost. The winners are Sony, Fuji, Panasonic and Nikon. Especially Sony! Well done.
Yes very accurate.
Impressive response in the Sony RX100 III.
nemark: My high-end compact camera of choice would (WOULD) be a G1x MkII, IF it had a BUILT-IN evf. Fully articulated display would be a great plus.Unfortunately, being without built-in EVF, my cameras of choice are, in this order: Lumix LX100, Fuji X30, Fuji X100T, Sony RX100 III, Lumix FZ1000, and only at the sixth place is G1x II. Sorry Canon, these days I am contemplating a high-end compact camera and this is may rang-list. After G1x MkI I hoped for EVF and you disappointed me. No viewfinder at all and limited articulation of LCD.Shame.
Mine too, and if it had a better sensor. Saw a recent publication that gave the G1X II their 2nd worst camera of the year. :-(
Best High-end Compact Camera of 2014 gets my vote for the Sony RX100 III.
Maff maff: Interface is not working with Touchscreen like iPad or kindle fire
Try it again just worked fine on my iPad.
Looks like others besides just DPReview are recognizing the Sony RX100 III as the Best Compact Pocket Camera.
keeponkeepingon: Why isn't the ricoh GR in this roundup?
It seems like a really poor choice to leave a dpreview GOLD award winning high end pocket camera out of the "High End Pocketable" roundup.
Even if you plan on putting it in a "Big sensor Roundup" (or whatever) it still belongs here also as folks looking for a pocketable camera won't necessarily go looking for it among huge clunkers such as the LX100 in your big sensor roundup.
Death89 How many times? PlentySome just don't read all the words I guess.
Lassoni: Should update the article to include lx100 . We're not trying to sell sony's product here, are we?
Lassoni No, we are just trying to at least get them in the right category though.
So many on the forums for this category have praised CameraLabs so you should all appreciate this:
"Gordon's favourite compact camera right now: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III"
Timmbits - Think you left the word Pocketable out which is in the actual title.
2014 High-end Pocketable Compact Roundup
Seems the article is correct in relation to the title and vice versa.
Ricoh GR will be covered in a separate Roundup as noted below since its a fixed focal length.
"At this point in time -it's the best pocket camera available."
Yes, published in 2013 and updated this year with the latest cameras.
And the top pick of the RX100 III being the best pocket camera is accurate based on consumers, other publications, and the current market. Amazing for 3 years now Sony continues to dominate the top spot.
