Intuitive handling and speedy performance
The new XQ1 is clearly designed to take on the all-conquering Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (our Compact Camera of the Year in 2012) and the popular Canon PowerShot S-series. It essentially offers image quality somewhere between the two at a very attractive price that is lower than both, whilst offering the same appealing retro design and great build quality that epitomises the X-series camera range.
Excellent image quality, Wi-Fi connectivity
The Leica C delivers good images, with bright saturated colours, along with a whole host of features, including excellent Wi-Fi control and sharing. The compact body fits neatly into your pocket, and despite the small size feels well built with quick access to controls.
The Leica C gives a good zoom range, with full manual controls and raw shooting.
Image quality is slightly better than on the previous SX260
The Canon PowerShot SX270 HS is essentially the same as the flagship SX280 HS model, but without that camera's GPS and wi-fi functionality. That's a shame, especially as there's only a small difference in the price of the two cameras, but overall the Canon PowerShot SX270 HS is a well-specified travel-zoom that offers the joint-best image quality in its class.
