Sony RX100 review


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a high-end compact with a 20.2 megapixel sensor

Build quality ; Function control via lens ring ; Larger than average sensor

Weak stabilisation ; Slow f4.9 maximum aperture at 100mm ; Digital zoom can't be disabled for movies ; Screen isn't touch-sensitive ; No miniature effect mode for movies
