Sony's RX100 Mark II has been one of the best advanced compact cameras on the market, so we have high expectations for the follow up, the Sony RX100 Mark III. We got some time to shoot with the camera and its new pop-up viewfinder in its natural habitiat at night in NYC.

We were also pleased with the initial low-light, high-ISO sample images. We'll have to wait until we get the camera in the test lab to say for sure how it resolves all the way up at ISO 12,800. For the sake of comparison, check out the sample galleries from the other RX100 models below.

The 1.44-million dot OLED viewfinder really sets this camera ahead of the competition. It's incredibly satisfying to use.
