Conclusion: Experts overwhelmingly agree: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is the best pocket-sized camera you can buy. Its secret is that it has the biggest sensor of any pocket camera. While other compact cams emptily promise fine photo quality like a bulky digital SLR (single-lens reflex) camera, experts and...

3 July 2013
Conclusion: The RX100 has just been released and it goes for $649 – much less than the $2800 asking price for the RX1. The Sony RX100 is therefore a great choice for professionals and enthusiasts who want a high quality travel camera with no compromise on the photos, as well as beginners who want to have just...
Summary: The Sony DSC-RX100 is a very modern and beautiful compact camera with an aggressive design and elegant and characterized by the use of high-quality materials. The performance and features are anything but compact and help to make the price of this device quite high, reaching figures that can be...
Pros: Lens F1.8 Carl Zeiss ® Vario-Sonnar ® T; Video Full HD 50p Mode SteadyShot, Clear Image Zoom up to 7.2 x; design and materials; Large Exmor CMOS sensor 1; Xtra Fine LCD high resolution; ring control, ISO 25,600 in Multi Frame NR.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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 adding the bulk and expense of a compact camera...
Pros: Truly amazing sensor packed into camera that fits in your pocket. Beautiful Zeiss lens opens up to f/1.8. Fast and accurate autofocus. ISO range from 125 to 6400, and an Auto ISO mode that never misses. The best manual control ring I’ve used on a point-and-shoot. Big LCD. Deep levels of programma...
Cons: No matter how you look at it, 0 is a lot of cheese. No viewfinder. Pre-programmed scenes lack intelligence. Video export isn’t as smooth or easy as it is on other cameras.
Conclusion: But as I've continued to use it, I find myself drawn to its small size (compared to a DSLR or even an NEX camera) and consisently impressed with its still and video image quality. Indeed, Sony's RX100 gives us very nearly the image quality of a DSLR in very nearly a pocket-sized package.
Summary: Compact cameras have been struggling recently, many people choose to use a smartphone for their picture-taking requirements, while more demanding photographers opt for a mirrorless or DSLR camera.
Summary: The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100, at first sight, might look like just another point and shoot. But with a newly designed sensor that boasts a robust 20.2 million pixels the RX100 is out to prove it can makes its way to the top of the charts.
Pros: Excellent still image quality, Good autofocus and shutter lag performance, Good ISO performance given resolution, Full manual controls along with fully automatic and RAW shooting format
Cons: Cost, No external battery charger, Below average printed user's manual, RAW converter must be downloaded
