The only problem: we are usually too busy taking photographs to give a complete and considered answer to these type of questions… So? Luckily we love photography and have found a few days to compile a no BS review of the very best, small but truly brilliant digital cameras out there. This fairly small black hunk of slippery alloy and plastic (269g) has enormous quality and stunning potential in the right hands. Now for that limitation, the only thing that is really wrong with this camera (apart from the fact you need three others and each with a different focal length lens attached), is the price! Verdict The Sony RX1 is a great camera but just too expensive for almost everyone, I will bet Donald Trump owned one for a while, then he got rid of it as too much trouble and now he just uses pricey disposables. These two models LX7 and D-lux6 are in fact the exact same camera, with different software and badges. Think about it, historically the best lens maker on the planet and a company with more patents in electronic image capture that any other, this Camera has designer baby DNA. Another great thing about this lens is it can focus at very small distances, this can lead to some really Attenborough like close up nature shots with very out of focus backgrounds.
So… In short The Panaica is a real gem, but as a broadcast video camera and (hopefully soon) an tiny 18mm superwide, is a little diamond. This fuji is one of the best Cameras ever made for shooting people in everyday situations, especially when they are running around with complete unpredictability, i.e. Maybe the lack of a zoom makes it too restrictive for many as a holiday camera, most people would like to take it easy on holiday, crossing the road backwards to take a snap of the hotel might be a risk too far for most. The Fuji X100s would also be my first choice of camera if I were somehow shooting a sweet, laughing and nude Marilyn Monroe, in a big white bed with soft white linen, by a big sunny window.
Okay get ready for this; P7800 is the best compact camera in the world, is without a doubt the finest handling and most fully featured compact camera in existence today. The Nikon P7800 is the best compact camera out there right now, it only costs ?350 and we have to recommend you buy one: So why isn’t it the No1 compact camera in the world? We feel there is a standout winner in the compact camera arena at the moment: The Canon s120. The Canon s120 is a stunning compact camera, and just the perfect, functions, size, handling and shape. Maybe you would like to know a lot lot more about these and some of the others before buying?
Still, your entitled to your own opinions, but I know which I’d rather have in my pocket when a once in a lifetime shot presents itself.
Firstly the camera makes a serious mess out of bright highlights, it blows out highlights that even an old Lumix LX5 could handle with ease.
I very much agree with this reviewer, I did keep my RX100 but it is deeply flawed, in very many common circumstances the shots are full of white areas where the highlights burned in. I also agree with the different negative points mentioned by Shooter One above, although I think the RX100 is definitively not a bad camera and might have deserved to be in this TOP5, not as winner though.
Result: after taking more than 2000 shots with it in a wide range of situations, I can say that the RX100 is a decent camera, but it is actually very disappointing after reading all the positive reviews and considering its retail price. Firstly, it is extremely sensitive to flares and thus night shooting with strong artificial lighting is a nightmare.
A said above, it has a nice spec sheet, something that might have impressed a lot of reviewer. It is a pity it could have so easily been a great camera, we could never recommend it as professional photographers. Wow leaving out the sony RX100 is like having a best phone roundup and leaving out the galaxy S3 ???? I fully agree with Shooter One that RX 100 has its flaws since I owned one and have sold it last month. Rather than just getting angry on articles for no reason, i would advice you should ponder on the valid reasons these guys have made which is almost true as a (ex) RX 100 owner myself. After four Canon compacts and three dying prematurely of lens mechanism errors which continue to plague their lineup, the Canon certainly doesn’t look attractive to me. I still like your reviews, however, my initial enthusiasum over the P7700 is a little subdued.
I’m currently looking for small camera with hi-quality output, mainly for architecture photography, have you any suggestions on that topic? Hmmmmmmmm the Sigma DP1 and Ricoh GDR IV, these are both great cameras, they are both however a little old and are suffering most in the areas where big gains have been made in the more recent releases. Jan I would just like to update my last comment, i think that the right Camera for you might just be the Fujifilm XEi with the 14mm lens attached. I hope the reason you agree is that we are correct, at least from a professional users viewpoint. Digital Single Reflex Camera (DSLR) are those advanced cameras than the ordinary digital cameras as they use a mechanical mirror system and pentaprism to direct light from the lens to an optical viewfinder on the back of the camera. This is yet another series of Canon, which has been designed exclusively for enhancing the serious photographers and semi-professionals.
This is one of the most astounding creations from the wardrobes of Nikon that secured them the Best Advanced DSLR camera awards for 2011 from TIPA.
Another DSLR from Nikon is Nikon D90 that unleashes your artistic potential with stunning picture clarity.
This is one of the most stunning picture capturing cameras for those who believe that they could do better with higher pixelate lenses.
If I have to put things in simple terms, with this camera, Canon gives their amateur customers all that a professional camera will do in simplicity. Author Bio – Praveen is associated with a web host company which has a very good web host reviews.

I think Canon EOS 7D is really a smart camera to have especially if your willing to learn professional photography. 4shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Pin to Pinterest Share on StumbleUpon+What's This? Sony alongside the new NEX VG30 and VG900 has announced a full frame image camera, dubbed The Alpha A99, a flagship priced at $2,800 or about Rs 1.5 lac. The glory all comes from a all-new 24.3-megapixel Exmor sensor, with an increased photodiode area for overly impressive low light quality  images(up to ISO 102,400). SAN DIEGO, Sept 12, 2012 – Sony’s long awaited ?99 digital camera sets a new performance standard for professional-class DSLRs, combining all of the benefits of full-frame imaging with the responsiveness and speed of Translucent Mirror Technology. The successor to Sony’s flagship ?900 DSLR, the ?99 camera features a brand new 24.3 MP full-frame image sensor, a unique dual phase-detect AF system and a host of other innovative technologies that work together to deliver the best image and full HD video quality in the history of Sony’s acclaimed line of ?  cameras.
The full frame sensor is enhanced by a newly-developed separate multi-segment optional low-pass filter, increasing its resolving power.  Assisted by an all-new front-end LSI, the BIONZ engine can process massive amounts of image signal data from the sensor at very high speeds. The evolved BIONZ processor also gives the ?99 model a maximum sensitivity range (in expanded sensitivity mode) as wide as ISO50 – 25600 – a range of nine stops.  Its unprecedented processing power enables the camera to shoot a burst of images at up to six frames per second at full resolution or up to 10 fps in Tele-zoom high speed shooting mode. A new AF range control allows photographers to manually select foreground and background distance to which the AF system will not respond, especially useful for shooting fast moving sports or animals through a nearby wire mesh or in front of a complex background that commonly distracts camera AF systems. The new ?99 camera’s video capabilities build on Sony’s expertise in developing professional motion picture cameras, combining the unmatched resolving power and sensitivity of the full-frame sensor with several advanced features optimized for professional video production.
For added convenience while shooting video, a new silent, programmable multi-control dial on the front of the camera body allows silent adjustment of common settings during shooting including exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, shutter speed, aperture and much more.
The camera’s audio features are designed to meet the demanding needs of serious videographers.


Despite its impressive pro-class credentials, the ?99 camera is the world’s lightest 35 mm full-frame interchangeable-lens digital camera. Additionally, the camera is weather-sealed and all buttons and controls have been ruggedized.  A redesigned shutter block, tested to approximately 200,000 releases, further ensures the camera’s stamina and reliability. The camera’s enhanced ergonomics include a re-designed grip and differentiated designs of several switches and buttons that allow for intuitive fingertip operation. The full-frame imaging capabilities of the ?99 camera make it an ideal partner for the new 300mm F2.8 G SSM II (SAL300F28G2) lens. Offered exclusively for the ?99 camera, the brand-new VG-C99AM vertical grip can house and manage three batteries in total (including the camera’s own on-board battery). The brand new, range-leading HVL-F60M is a powerful flash (GN60, in meters at ISO 100) with built-in LED light that’s ideal for creative applications with still image or movie shooting.  Smart functions include wireless multi-flash ratio control and Sony’s unique Quick Shift Bounce adjustment, while operation can be controlled quickly via the flash’s intuitive Quick Navi system.
Compatible with 49mm and 55mm diameter lenses, the new HVL-RL1 Ring Light offers highly effective LED illumination of small subjects and is ideal for macro shooting**. Styled to reduce carrying fatigue, the new LCS-BP3 Backpack can hold the ?99 camera body, an attached telephoto zoom lens plus the VG-A99AM vertical grip as well as three to four spare lenses, accessories and a laptop up to 15.5”. The ADP-MAA is a new shoe adaptor that allows Multi Interface Shoe cameras to be used with Auto-lock Accessory Shoe accessories. Lastly, the PCK-LM14 Screen Protector Semi Hard Sheet safeguards the camera’s LCD screen against dust, scratches and fingerprints, and is supplied with a separate protector sheet for the top display panel. The LCS-BP3 backpack and PCK-LM14 screen protector will be available in October as well for about $160 and $17, respectively. All written after weeks and weeks of testing, arguing and using our considerable experience and professionals’ perspective. Those selfless little bear traps trying to grab a bit of your money as they point you toward last year’s most popular (noisy and compromise ridden) compact camera from not the cheapest website. It sports a fixed focal length 35mm F2 .0 lens built into the smallest body that could do the job of focusing a near perfect image onto one massive 24mp imaging chip.
The Leica costs considerably more around ?500 v the Lumix at about ?300 – fathom that?
But Panasonic make the real-deal hollywood motion picture v4k video type cameras and some of that special sauce has found its way into this tiny camera giving it fantastic broadcast quality video. We have a LX7 and a  LX5 with DMW-LWA52 super wide adapter and these elegant and superb little cameras get used much more than you might think, definitely considering the choice of camera weaponry laying around our studios. If it were a man it would be Daniel Craig as james bond 007, sharp infallible and deadly accurate, not gorgeous but passably handsome in a sharp dark suit, if it were a women it would be Kate Middleton, looking down at the rest of womenanity but not quite sure how it got there. The whole point of a camera like this is you can take it with you at all times with ease, and be sure of one thing it is the best Camera it could be at this size; you are not giving a lot away to almost any camera available. For us the Canon s120 is the right camera to have in your jeans pocket every day of the year.
On the whole though, Camera shop staff will not steer you far wrong, after all most shops will let you take it back within a week if you are unhappy (some 28 days if you still have all the bits by then) that said, they often do exchanges though a gritted smile. We can say with authority that the Sony RX100 is an almost perfect camera, with two car crash flaws that could have been put right for a few extra pounds. This is due to a mismatch between Sonys amazing chip and the processing engine they chose to put into the RX100, in order to keep down costs the processing engine is low spec for a 20meg chip and stop the shot to shot time being too noticeably long the processing is done in a hurry.
Interior photography with a dark room and a few lights will result in totally overblown highlights, no matter what HDR modes you use.
The picture will look naturally more appealing to a certain audience, but the blacks will be clamped and you will lose details in the shadows. But after actively testing it, I wouldn’t recommend it to photography amateurs that want good IQ.
The click less control dial contributes to vague and un engaging shooting experience apart from the unpredictable Flash metering.
Hence we had only one member of staff on cover last week and no one to moderate the website comments this weekend.
You guys & girls need to take you time and write a bit slower next time ?? Still this is the best review of smaller professional cameras I have found on the net. This camera has been designed well allowing you to capture professional photographs, despite you being an amateur photographer.
The features of this camera includes 18 MP APS-C size CMOS sensor and dual DIGIC 4 image Processors for capturing ISO 12800 with a speed of 8 fps. This high-resolution camera has some of the following key features, which makes them stand out – high resolution 16.2 MP DX-format CMOS that can take 200 shots continuously at a speed of 6 fps, 3D color matrix, EXPEED Image 2 processing, Twin SD card slots with accessibility to SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards.
This camera is a fusion of 12.3 MP image qualities and has an exceptional 24fps D-Movie Mode, which exceeds the demands of a passionate photographer.
This is the camera for a photo enthusiast as this fosters creativity, better image quality, and advanced features with in-camera technologies for ease of use. From top-of-the-line resolution to fully customizable settings, professional dSLRs combine functions and performance to create professional quality photos with every shot. It has all the features that are required by a good photographer and this camera was being preferred by my photography teacher too. The company is targeting both professional photographers and leading filmmakers, with plenty of features that will appeal to both.
Together with a powerful new area-specific noise reduction (NR) algorithm, it allows to the camera to achieve 14-bit RAW output, rich gradation and low noise. Other enhancements include real-time Full HD video output via HDMI®, and uninterrupted ‘dual-card’ recording using both of the camera’s media slots. An audio level display and adjustable audio record levels are joined by a headphone jack for accurate in-the-field monitoring.  Additionally, the multi-interface shoe provides balance audio input for the optional XLR-K1M adaptor kit, which adds a high-quality mono shotgun microphone and pro-standard XLR connections for dependable audio acquisition. A new exposure mode dial lock prevents accidental rotation, and a newly-developed Quick Navi Pro interface gives quick, intuitive one-handed access to common shooting parameters and controls. Supported functions include switching between still and video shooting plus automatic transfer of still images from camera to PC for an improved studio workflow.
Designed for demanding sports and wildlife applications, this bright super-telephoto offers a significantly improved optical design and handling compared with its predecessor.
Resistant to dust and moisture, the grip is ideal for lengthy shooting sessions in the studio or outdoors. Also resistant to dust and moisture, the HVL-F60M flash comes supplied with a bounce adaptor for flash and a color conversion filter for use with LED lighting.
This adaptor will be supplied with the new HVL-60M flash and HVL-RL1 ring light mentioned above.  Conversely, the ADP-AMA shoe adaptor allows Auto-lock Accessory Shoe cameras to be used with Multi Interface Shoe accessories.
Or possibly a good value B’day present for a reluctant yet budding, rich yet poor, student relation?) They will mill around the studio waiting until everything seems to go quite and the flashing stops for a few moments, and just pose that quite important compact camera question, strait at one of us, in one super long sentence without stopping to for a breath. By massive what I mean is not the 24mp, it is the actual chip size, it is as big as a full 35mm film frame, by compact standards this is Gigantisaurus huge. It  costs about ?170 for the LX5, but it turns a little cameras into one of the best things an idiot with money can buy for photographing small interior spaces and making them look amazingly good. It is sort of like fuji put an experienced social photographer in the camera and let them take care of all the settings and hard stuff and you just get to chase the action, click and look totally fly doing it.
But unlike the Sony it seems decent value, as you will be using it all the time, and it is truly exceptional at doing something we all need to do, take brilliant natural pictures of the family. So… Our best advice is simply take a walk and while you are out buy this underpriced jewel and start using it on the way home and keep going.
It is capable of amazing results, as are all the cameras listed above, I guess the point is; it is near to leading the field in every major area. The main standout feature for us is the handing, it is so comfortable and quick to use, the controls (especially the very handy programable control ring) are exactly where they should be and have all the correct shortcuts for finding what you need, when you need it, without much menu digging. The net is full of great technical tests and reading endless comparisons does give you some idea of what you are buying. You would still be buying a brilliant Camera if you purchased any of the others listed, and a lot of other Cameras we did not feel quite made this top 5 recommendation.
Sony decided to let the camera go to market as is, basically because to fix these issues would push the Camera above a certain carefully planned price point and would give them nothing to improve on in 13 months when the RX120 comes out. This is the kind of processing that all cameras do behind the scenes and it is absolutely crucial in fixing highlight and noise issues, it is a very scary exercise to hack a compact camera and get a look at the real raw file direct from the chip. At the widest end the RX100 lens is only 28mm, the winning Cannon S110 is 24mm, a world of difference shooting indoors.


Of course, it will be less visible if you re-size down the pictures from 20Mpix to only ~4Mpixel, but the overall look of the picture will remain slightly affected by this watercolor effect that you find on all smaller-sensors Sony Camera. We did read the DP review, but we did not feel that there was a noticeable problem on the P7700, we found processing time was only a problem when shooting rapidly for a string of shots, (the buffer fills in about 3 or 4 shots in rapid succession) then it does start to slow down considerably, I guess as it tries to write and process both files at once while waiting for the storage chip to accept more data. The foveon chip in the Sigma has real potential, but it need more development to take advantage of its big intrinsic superiorities. The camera also sports a 3” Clear View II LCD screen, dual layer metering, Direct print, Full HD 1080p picture quality videos and stills, Picture Style, Live View mode, Pict Bridge, HDMI and supports Windows 7.
This is world’s first DSLR with HD movie mode and has other features like 3” super density LDC monitor screen, 3D color matrix, auto Active D-lighting, in-camera image editing for direct printing and GPS geo tagging. Some of the major attractive features are 18 MP CMOS, 3” wide LCD screen with 5.3 fps and dual layer metering. Apart from his busy life he love to post news articles related to tech, internet security and latest gadgets.
People are not so dumb though, they can smell the sweet bias and buried bodies written about popular cameras on the internet.
It has a raft of technical features and given decent conditions and a skilful hand this Nikon camera can produce images as good as almost any DSLR available today. If you are a top international professional photographer like a couple of us here, or this is going to be your first ever Camera, take some images on the S120 and you are going to to have several Wow!
But unless you are ready to invest days of reserch and background checking, a lot of technical reviews and image comparisons will mislead you (if you know little) and confuse you (if you know a little) we often are amazed by the utter lies put out by some sites.
And they assumed that most users would be happy with the amazing specs, and a lot of very selectively blind reviews you can read on the net (often surrounded by the sickly sweet smell of affiliate links).
The other major flaw is the almost laughable rolling shutter effect when filming any moving object, it is quite a poor show on a modern camera and even an iphone 5 will make a better job of filming objects moving from right to left accross the frame. Finally the RX100 is 37.4mm from front to back by a digital micrometer (Sony claim 36mm) the Cannon S110 is just over 26mm. I wish they would have a more neutral treatment like Canon, that preserves the details with a very limited noise. Also, it has a hotshoe, which is a treat if you want to use FM wireless-remote flash in daylight, where optical-infrared slaves wash out.
Your review does not have a single camera in common with the awful 5 best compacts on DP review – Bravo. You are obviously impressive photographers, but you should let someone else proof your writing, it would look a lot more professional. We spend all day, every day using cameras as professional tools to make the best photographs possible. The answer will always depends on: who is asking, what they need a compact camera for, how much money they have to spend, how many megapixels they need** and an host of other flighty personal variables. Anyhow, If you are house buying and you see one of these swinging around the neck of someone in the background at the estate office, run away, or at least make sure you see the apartment with your own eyes before making an offer. It is that go anywhere, do anything, super camera that you could hold comfortably in the palm of your hand – A camera this brilliant could only be dreamed about a few years ago. This camera is (for something this good) very very compact, it is extremely slim and with the lens retracted is nearly totally flat, the ends are rounded just perfectly to slip into your pocket, it has a good built-in lens hood and so does not need a case to be carried. This is one of the very best compact cameras available today…But what makes it a true first, numero uno, stand out winner is: it really is a compact! Now can we have that Facebook share… this article took several months to compile and test and we have saved you a fortune buying that x15 heap of crap you could have ended up with. So in short the RX100 is a first place Camera except for taking pictures and shooting video… There is an old saying about Sony products, occasionally they are very good but stupidly expensive, but usually they are made to a price and only look good on a spec sheet. Between all the company bling and bribes; we in the shop still all know exactly what cameras are good and which ones are hyped. We do not really care about brand name status, PR, advertising, or press reviews – we test cameras by using them, flaws, bad design, weaknesses or quality issues will be revealed very soon in the heat of battle.
In the end all the bull does is sell a load of rubbish to people to lazy or busy to look into it and the rest of us just keep on using a scratched iphone to capture those  magic stumbleupons, all without much pride in the results. It IS just the most expensive & beautiful lens with a huge very high quality chip attached on the end, total superbity. The best camera you can have to take a picture is… the one you have on you when you need it, most likely the one you actually carry everyday!
We have to buy all our Canon stuff at full price !- Some other makers do give stuff away or give reviewers sweet discounts…Just bear in mind we make money as photographers in fact we make quite a lot of money, we buy the gear we WANT to buy, because it is the best stuff we can find, in fact cost is often the last thing we consider.
I feel that the RX100 does not come close to the top 5, what ever I have read, buy one if you like and make your own mind up, if you can avoid anything that shines, reflects or is moving it is a winner. I would suggest grabbing one in a camera store and running a few shot, it is certainly what I will do this afternoon. So if I wanted to shoot art quality architectural photography I would just make myself a special Jacket with the biggest custom pockets ever seen and run out and buy a Ebony RW45E and a 72mm Super Angulon XL to go with it.
Everyday we take quality equipment almost to it’s limits in a creative pact with tech Satan. Pity, there are some amazingly good pocketable cameras out there right now, and a few are even great value too. The out of focus areas will be very blurry this tends to produce very cool pictures: things look super sharp and surrounded by sexy out of focusness. I could use this camera all day long, and when I have, it is still keeps amazing me to the very last shot. It is amazingly good for macro work and very fast at focusing balancing all the variables that make good macro images as well as being stupidly sharp (did i say the bit about being sharp?). Whereupon it will start up extremely quickly (well under a second) and be ready to take a near SLR pro-quality photograph almost instantly. Not the expensive brick you leave at home because it’s a bit too big to fit in your pocket and forget. Have some faith – The s110 is the one to get in 98% of cases, if you are unsure it is probably defiantly the one to get. Thank you for highlighting this, we certainly will add this to our findings if we find we can reproduce it.
We love cameras, if we are not using one, we are either thinking, talking or dreaming about how they could be better.
The detail in a fine quality print, made from any of the cameras on this page will blow your socks off, even if printed as big as a wall). It has a fully articulating flip-out LCD screen which is enormously useful in real life situations and enables the camera to be used effectively even in the most awkward spaces, as well as this it has a very reasonable electronic viewfinder.. With phone cameras being so excellent of late, compact cameras need to make stunning images, be faultless, small and tough or what is the point? Similar to the Sony and very much a very situation focal length, it reproduces life in a similar way to how we perceive when we are looking at the stuff in front of us. In terms of its physical controls it really is probably the best handling compact camera available its front grip and rear thumb-rest make it dreamily comfortable to hold with all of the controls coming perfectly to hand, and in this it truly outclasses its closest rival the excellent Canon G-15. Not the best reasons for a choice in puerist terms, but thats not always the reason for looking at other options? It is a Carl Zeiss Sonnar 35mm F2  lens and take it from us this is optical heaven on earth. The problem is without any ability to zoom at all, you are going to have to do some legwork when you wanna zoom.
Lowlight performance is superb too (this camera is so good i am getting bored) although there are 1 or 2 compacts out there that can compete. Probably this camera’s outstanding feature is its unbelievable levels of technical control, there is simply a completists set of semi automatic modes as well as full manual control giving you that feeling of being an expert in charge of the experts tool. It has a class leading 3 inch LCD on the back, unfortunately not a touch screen, still bright and very clear. There a lot of great Cameras that come close to the Canon s120 and one or two even look better on paper, but in practice they fall short of being as good and without compromise.
