Digital Still Camera (2012)

The DSC-RX100 is small and light, but features a 1-inch (25mm) image sensor. High-quality aluminum was used for the body, ensuring optimal rigidity and texture. The main controls are metal, and the styling emphasizes the edges, giving users a sense of the camera’s reliability. The centrally positioned lens tube, with a diameter nearly equal to the height of the body, allows the camera to be held securely and makes the control ring easy to operate. The solid feel of the body—not seen before in this class—and the simple shape made this camera a popular choice.
