Overall, the Sony RX100 IV is an amazing feat of engineering and design.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V is a solid entry in the world of compact superzooms.

The ordering of some settings is slightly odd though, with key options like ISO sensitivity, metering and white balance relegated to the third page of the camera settings tab.

The RX100 is plenty capable, but its greatest strength is its size.
