Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100

Announced Jun 6, 2012 •
20 megapixels | 3 screen | 28 – 100 mm (3.6×)
dpreview conclusion

The RX100 is probably the most capable compact camera on the market today, combining the image quality benefits of a mid-sized sensor with the proportions of a conventional compact. Extensive, though not flawless, manual controls make the RX100 a great second camera for DSLR shooters.

Good for

Enthusiasts looking for a carry-everywhere camera. Developing photographers who don't want the cost and bulk of interchangeable lenses.

Not so good for

Low light work (compared to a large-sensor camera) or fast action shooters.
