Sony CyberShot DSC RX100 Overview

Published :

The Good

  • Larger sensor in a compact body.
  • Excellent image quality.
  • Low-light images are top-notch.
  • Offers P,A,S,M modes.
  • Fast reaction when it comes to auto-focus.

The Bad

  • Absence of external battery charger.
  • Absence of a solid grip.
  • Clickless control dial might turn away users who are more accustomed
  • Lack of GPS & Wi-Fi.
  • Lack of ergonomical concept.

The Bottom Line

The RX100 packs a punch with its large sensor and high quality image capturing capabilities. Couple that with the option of shooting in PASM modes and video recording features, this is the perfect option of people who are looking for advanced compact models.

Sony Cybershot DSC Rx100 cements a strong position in the advanced compact camera models due to its innovative use of a 1" large CMOS sensor but housed inside a 3.6' optical zoom compact camera. Its lens feature is characterised by a Carl-Zeiss Sonar T with 3.6x zoom lens and coupled with a focal range of approximately 28-100mm. Despite the large sensor within the body, the Rx100 is still  a pocketable camera with better features.

Camera Body: 

The Rx100 is housed within an aluminium body with the construction pretty much having the touch of a sleek, modern model. It comes within the specifications , which can easily fit inside a trouser's pocket, Despite this feature, it clearly lacks out on the grip factor except for the rubberized small grip on the rear which serves as a thumb rest. Some users might be fearful of this factor, seeing that it has a metal body and they will constantly feel the need to put more effort while gripping the model. 

It has a twin control dial feature, where the control ring can be customized by the user to operate on any of the functions like ISO, shutter speed, zoom, aperture etc. And there's the function ring which can also be customized to access 7 different settings and to recall them whenever the need occurs. Another thing to be noticed is the absence of click stops on the control wheel. While this may not produce any effect on the final image output, but it's rather a fall-out on any type of shooting experience where the user doesn't get any kind of feedback from the camera. 

Features :   

Continuous Shooting:

Sony claims that the Rx100 delivers 10fps at continuous shutter speed. Rx100 offers two continuous shooting modes - low and speed. Low mode compensates for 2.5fps before the buffers stocks up and the fps drops down. With speed mode, the fps however still does not come down to 10fps. But these are pretty much dependent on the settings and the number of images.


One important feature of the Rx100 is its ability to auto-focus on subjects even at low-light situations. Its auto-focus system offers a whole range of options - Face Detection, AF Tracking and the likes etc. It also does away with the usual auto-focus problems that are present in compact system cameras. With faster auto-focus speeds, it is able to catch even fast-paced images with more details and color rendition.


It lacks geo-tagging and wireless connectivity features, which is a setback specially with all the other features that it bring along. Although a few other models in the same price range do offer these features.


Sony Cybershot DSC RX100 uses NP-BX1 lithium-ion rechargeable battery as its power source. According to CIPA testing standards, it pretty much covers 330shots.

Sensor Performance and Image Quality:

One of the noticeable feature about the Rx100 is its sensor. It brings a huge 1" Exmor CMOS sensor along with a 20.2MP resolution and is the first in its category from Sony. The sensor size is same as that of the Nikon's 1series (CX-mount) compact system cameras. If we compare this to a standard compact camera, then the sensor size is pretty huge , thereby allowing more light to hit the sensor and also helping the user to capture quality and detailed pictures.

When it comes to images, the Rx100 supports both JPEGs and the heavy duty RAW format. The Rx100 delivers detailed images when it comes to color rendition and contrast. It delivers far better pictures among the other models from the same range. Concerning JPEG images, the pictures have more clarity and resolution in them. For images clicked in RAW, there seems to be some noticeable difference at higher ISOs. At low ISOs like 100, 200 the images show more resolution and sharpness and contains more detail. Only at ISO 1000 and above, there's the presence of grains. But at higher ISOs i.e. 3200, the images contain more noise and grains in them. One noticeable aspect of this is that the Rx100 still contains details in the images at higher ISOs, which is absent in other models, like Nikon 1.
