Our fifth award is for Compact Camera of the Year 2012, which goes to the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100.

“Sony have not only blurred the lines between compact and compact system in terms of the RX100’s features, performance and image quality, but somewhat inevitably perhaps also in terms of its price. $650/£550 is more than many mirrorless cameras and even some DSLRs too, but on the other hand this is no humble compact. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is the first truly pocketable camera to offer a DSLR experience, and in that regard it could almost be seen as something of a bargain - it’s certainly deserving of our highest Essential! accolade.”

Congratulations to Sony and the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100!

The RX100 might be two to four times the price of lesser compact cameras, but on the other hand, it's about the same price as a mid-range prosumer zoom lens. So think of it as a quality zoom lens with a camera attached!
