Still the Point-and-Shoot to Beat

 

Saying you've found “the best point-and-shoot camera” is like saying you've got “the best kind of toe fungus.” It's something hardly anybody wants. We're all carrying around perfectly capable cameras on our smartphones, so if you're going to recommend...

Sony's RX100 hits the right notes for advanced photographers

 

It's far from perfect, but an intelligent combination of design, performance, and photo quality make the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 one of the best compact cameras for the money we've seen to date.

Speed, good looks, and pretty pictures number among the ; strengths.

The camera tends to clip bright highlights more than we typically see, and the slippery body lacks a grip. Plus, the lack of a manually triggered macro mode might put off some fans of close-up photography.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100's compact, elegant design, generally excellent photo quality, bright, fast lens, and speedy performance make a great package if you don't mind spending a little more money.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 ($649.99 direct) is the point-and-shoot camera that many an enthusiast has dreamed of. It's got an image sensor that's the same size as the mirrorless Nikon J1 and a 3.6x zoom lens that opens up to f/1.8 on the wide end,...

Large image sensor. Superb image quality, even at high ISOs. Fast lens. Customizable controls. Large, extra-sharp LCD. Virtually no shutter lag. Raw shooting support

As expensive as some D-SLRs. No EVF option, GPS, or Wi-Fi. Limited zoom range. In-camera battery charging only

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 packs a relatively huge 1-inch image sensor into a point-and-shoot body, delivering close-to-SLR-quality images from a camera you can fit in your back pocket. It's expensive, but worth it.

Sony RX100 review

 

Camera design is all about compromise. Great pictures ideally need large sensors and fast lenses, but this usually means a heavier burden on your camera bag or wallet. Mirrorless cameras try to...

Astonishing image quality for the size ; Solid, pocketable design ; Excellent interface

Unimpressive video performance and usability ; Expensive

If you want something portable, the RX100 is impossible to beat

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 Preview

 

Sony has just announced its new flagship compact camera, the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. With the world's first 1.0-inch type Exmor CMOS sensor, good for a whopping 20.2 megaxpixels, the RX100's image sensor is approximately four times larger than 1/2.3-type...

Review: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 digital camera

 

The RX100 is a pocket-size, go-anywhere camera that provides outstanding image quality, with ergonomics that make taking control of the device easy and enjoyable.

Larger sensor and superior lens make for class-leading still image quality and class-leading video performance ; Excellent ergonomics built around clever front control ring and editable Fn menu ; WhiteMagic technology makes LCD clear and easy to view...

None significant

Just about every shortcoming I can identify in the Cyber-shot RX100 (say, its lack of a hot shoe or GPS) can be explained by Sony’s determination to keep the camera truly compact. My most serious complaint—that the RX100 can’t entirely replace my...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a feature-packed compact camera aimed at the discerning photographer. Offering an integrated 3.6x, 28-100mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* zoom lens with a fast aperture of F1.8 at the wide-angle setting, a 20.2 megapixel...

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 takes a clear shot at the popular Canon PowerShot S-series and in most ways clearly beats it, resulting in the best pocket camera that avid photographers can currently buy. Sony have obviously been "inspired" by the Canon...

Sony RX100 Review

 

Sony's Cyber-shot RX100 takes the cake as the most premium of pocket cameras, with a much larger sensor, a very bright lens (at wide angle), excellent image quality, great performance, and enough modes and special features to keep a tinkerer busy for a...

Excellent high-ISO performance for such a compact model; Smart controls; Small body; Bright lens; 10fps full-res burst mode; Very fast shutter response; Excellent LCD

Lens flare at night; Poor rendering of yellows; Slow flash recycling; Soft corners wide open; Continuous AF mode slow to lock

Digital Camera Review: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100

 

The RX100 has a lot to live up to given that you can buy plenty of decent interchangeable lens cameras for the same price. Thing is, those cameras don't fit into a pocket and can't be whipped out at a moment's notice–this Cyber-shot can. Sporting an...
