Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100

PC Magazine
11 December 2012
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: As expensive as some D-SLRs. No EVF option, GPS, or Wi-Fi. Limited zoom range. In-camera battery charging only.

  • 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

  • Cons: The RX100 lacks features like Wi-Fi, NFC and GPS and has a limited optical zoom range.

Review: Sony Cyber-shot RX100

Wired
15 November 2012
  • 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.

Mirrorless cameras try to strike a middle ground by helping you capture DSLR-style images in a smaller, often less expensive...

What Digital Camera
7 June 2012
  • Summary: With an expected price of around £550, the RX100 is one of the more expensive compacts available – costing almost £200 more than the likes of the PowerShot S100 and X10 and placing itself firmly in Compact System Camera and entry-level DSLR territory.
  • Pros: Large sensor and the results it delivers, lens, build quality and size
  • Cons: It’s a touch pricey compared to rivals
