Sony DSC-RX100

Its not often, if at all, that I write about compact point and shoot cameras. Its virtually unknown for me to ever consider buying one. However, 20MP, raw files, full HD video and a 1" sensor made me sit up and notice this one when it was trailed on the rumour sites in the last few days.

Whats even more interesting is that the sample images on the Dpreview review look really good. Nice dynamic range, good sharpness and that "small sensor look" that I dislike so much doesn't seem to be there. I even saw a heavily noise reduced but nonetheless pretty decent ISO 6400 sample. This actually got very decent indeed when I downsized it.

I have a feeling I'll be trying one of these but have a look for yourselves. Very impressive.
