A Compact Camera With Great Image Quality
If you want a compact camera with great image quality, get the Sony RX100.
It gives truly professional image quality and works great in low life. It’s got a beautiful lens from Carl Zeiss, and reviewers love it. It has an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, and it’s loved my professional photographers. At $500, it isn’t cheap, but this is a camera that runs rings around most point & shoots, and which has a better lens than most DSLRs.
If you’re looking for something even more advanced and more expensive, check out the Fuji X100S. It is extremely popular with pro photographers looking for something a little different. It offers stunning image quality and gorgeous retro styling. It is also dead quiet, which makes it a great choice for street and travel photography when you don’t want to draw attention to yourself. It’s $1,300 which is pretty pricey, so go with the RX100 if you don’t want to take that leap.
