The top of the compact camera segment has been dominated by Sony's CyberShot RX100 series for the last two years, but with Canon's new PowerShot G7 X that also boasts a compact frame with a 1-inch sensor and all that you expect out of Canon's prosumer series, including ease of use, it seems Sony has just met its toughest challenger yet.
Sony is back with the third version of its RX100 prosumer compact, which is sensibly called the RX100 III. Except this time it’s two hundred dollars more expensive, at S$1,199. The company thinks that the faster lens and built-in electronic viewfinder justify the increase in price, but does it really add value to the entire package?
Not intending to compete on specs, Casio has released the Exilim EX-100, a premium point-and-shoot camera that is able to shoot at F2.8 throughout its 10.7x optical zoom range. But with so many premium compacts around, where does the EX-100 stand?
The widely acclaimed Sony RX100 series sees yet another update, and the latest version sports a redesigned lens and a built-in electronic viewfinder. Hit the jump to find out more about this Sony premium point-and-shoot, and see if the new features just made what's already Sony's best compact camera even better.
Casio jumps onto the premium compact bandwagon with the Exilim EX-100. Just recently announced, we had the opportunity to try out the camera in Bali. Here's our first impression of Casio's premium compact.
