Sony Cyber-shot RX100
Compact cameras are great in that their pocket-sized form means you can always have them with you when you need to take a photo. Unfortunately this "pocketability" often comes at a price ... the small sensors manufacturers are typically limited to using provide less than stellar image quality. Sony has revealed the Cyber-shot RX100, a compact camera with a larger than usual 1.0-inch sensor which measures 13.2 x 8.8mm.
The 20.2 effective megapixel CMOS sensor in the RX100 is the same size as the one in the Nikon 1 interchangeable lens system, and around four times larger than the 1/2.3"-type used in many point-and-shoot cameras. This means it can capture photos with considerably more detail than its smaller counterparts, and should be able to cope better in low-light and produce images with low noise.650
