  • - Macro performance not quite as good as some competitors.
    - Battery life not as good as predecessor (but still fair for its size).
    - Slightly below average saturation levels and hue accuracy.
    - Still can't capture RAW files and JPEGs at the "Extra Fine" highest quality setting.
    - Default Wi-Fi camera app lacks robust functionality; need to install additional (free) app.


  • - Great stills, outstanding video, and loads of features make this an amazing compact cam.
    - The screen is rated 1,228K dots and is very sharp.


  • The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV offers serious video improvements over the RX100 III, but it is very expensive for a compact camera.


  • The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V has an incredible zoom range and an excellent EVF, but its images suffer when the light gets low.


  • We liked last year's HX60V, but with slightly underwhelming image quality and no EVF or lens barrel control ring like the competition from Panasonic, it couldn't quite compete. Sony has clearly listened though and the Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V addresses most of our concerns.
    The move to an 18.2MP Exmor R sensor has given the HX90V a much-needed image quality boost, and although the results are no better than the class-leading Panasonic TZ70, they're certainly on a par, whether shooting in daylight or indoors.


  • With the HX90V/HX90, Sony presents a serious contender for the title of best 30x compact: it provides all-round performance, a plethora of features and is the only model to offer an electronic viewfinder, adjustable screen and customisable settings ring, all in one compact package. Indeed, despite having all these features, it's still the most compact camera of its kind. Unfortunately, this all makes for a relatively high RRP.


  • - Somewhat narrow and vertically uneven coverage from built in strobe at wide-angle.
    - Many apps are payware, and often surprisingly expensive compared to much more complex smartphone apps.
    - Performance is degraded slightly if you shoot in raw format.
    - Default colors somewhat muted compared to most cameras.
    - Corners can be a bit soft wide-open, especially at telephoto.
    - Rear control dial is too small and has poor feel with little feedback.
    - Very versatile 24 to 200mm-equivalent zoom range.


  • The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II could be considered the on the market. Where most bridge cameras offer little more than an oversized lens, the RX10 II blends a useful zoom range with a wide aperture, a larger than average sensor, tough weather-resistant construction and a wide selection of advanced features.
    Its 1-inch sensor may still be smaller those used in DSLRs and most CSCs, but it gives much-improved image quality over the 1/2.3-inch sensors in typical bridge cameras.


  • - The Sony RX10 II is a versatile stills shooter, but it stands out even further on video.
    - Quicker backroom computing power is one of the most important upgrades since last year’s model.
    - It’s an excellent EVF, though, among the best available at present.
    - The Sony RX10 II isn’t small, and it certainly isn’t cheap.


  • Compact cameras with 30x optical zoom are becoming fairly commonplace, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 stands out from the crowd by being noticeably smaller than the competition. It’s a pity this comes at the expense of ergonomics though, as the camera could really benefit from better gripping points.
    The only other significant shortcoming with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 is that you don’t get an electronic viewfinder.
