As the fourth generation of this popular yet premium-priced series of compacts, the RX100 IV has a new “stacked” one-inch-type 20-Mpix Exmor RS BSI sensor as well as some advanced video features, including UHD video and a 960 fps slow-motion recording option. Read on to find out how well the sensor performs in this new upgraded model.
Although not the first large sensor compact from the firm, the GX 7 is the first Canon compact to debut a 1-inch type sensor to rival the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 series. This 20Mpix BSI CMOS unit is paired with a fast 24-100mm f1.8-2.8 stabilized zoom and features a Digic 6 level processor, and large 3-inch tilting LCD. Read on to find out how the new 20Mpix sensor performs.
Given the physically small size and high pixel density we were mightily impressed by the 1-inch type sensor in the original RX100 and the follow up, the RX100 II. So how does the new RX100 III compare? Read on to find out.
After the announcement of the flagship Nikon 1 V3 the company revealed a new less expensive model sharing many of the features, including the 18-Mpix CX format (1-inch type) sensor with an improved hybrid AF system including 105 on-chip phase-detection points covering most of the frame, and new Expeed 4 level processor. Read on to find out how well this new model performs.
Sony has launched a new model in its RX range of high-end compacts. Boasting a new faster lens, built-in pop-up viewfinder and large 1”-type sensor, with a 20.1Mp resolution, is the new Sony RX100 III the ultimate point and shoot camera?
After the initial interest surrounding the original Nikon 1 V1 and the somewhat lackluster follow-up to that in the form of the Nikon 1 V2, the firm has introduced, arguably, the most exciting looking and capable model yet, the Nikon 1 V3. Read on to find out how this reimagined model performs.
Bearing a striking resemblance to the firm’s hugely popular mirrorless OM-D E-M5 the Stylus 1 is in fact a high-end digital compact camera complete with EVF and a high speed constant aperture 28-300mm equivalent zoom. Is it enough to compete with rival offerings and reclaim some of the market share taken by camera-phones? Read on to find out how well it performs.
With reports in the media of camera manufacturers scaling back on digital compacts due to the rise in popularity of camera-phones and mobile photography, we were curious to see if the Nokia 1020 could offer comparable performance. Read on to find out how this model fares against a range of digital cameras.
Everything I've read and heard from others has been brilliant. An upbeat review: http://www.squidoo.com/sony-rx100m-ii-and-sony-rx1r-price-and-review summarized the main points of BOTH the RX Series cameras being released, and you can find the web-cast from Sony about these cameras there too. I've pre-ordered mine... I'll post again when I have it in my hot little hand!
