Sony DSX-RX 100: Near Professional Quality
Looking for the Lexus of point-and-shoots? The Sony DSX-RX 100 is a high-end point-and-shoot lens with a 20.1 MP sensor that's much larger than those in other cameras of similar size. This means it's able to capture images that rival those from much larger cameras, including some Micro 4/3 and DSLR cameras.
One of our favorite features is this camera's sweep panoramic mode, which expertly captures multiple images in burst mode and stitches them together seamlessly. Lots of cameras have panoramic modes, but the DSC-RX100's sweep panoramic produces the best results.
The DSC-RX100 is solidly built and should please even professional photographers looking for a pocketable camera. It's available from Amazon.com for $648.
