We took Sony's new large-sensor compact, the RX100, out for a spin around the Big City and found its prospects of being a strong competitor in the pocketable "street machine" category quite promising.
The one-inch 20.2MP sensor is obviously this little camera's biggest selling point, but one shouldn't gloss over the full-time manual controls, which we found to be both intuitive and snappy to click through, especially on the fly.
At its widest, the RX100 is an equivalent of 28mm, perfect for shooting from the hip. There are a solid handful of images in this gallery shot in such a way.
All of the photos that follow are completely unprocessed, other than a conversion to sRGB.
Tech Specs: ISO 6400, 1/30 sec, f/10 (camera was balanced on a table). Focal Length: 48mm equivalent (CLICK FOR FULL-RES)
