The Sony RX100 III is a stunning, pocket-friendly shooter, but can it defeat its amazingly popular siblings? It was clear from its heritage that the Sony RX100 III would be an exciting camera, given that both its predecessors earned our Pocket Camera of the Year award, two years running. But that level of success also meant some mighty big shoes to fill. Sony's pocket-friendly shooter line are in a class of their own, and we shot all three models side-by-side to determine once and for all -- which is the best compact camera that money can buy? Did the RX100 III have what it took to steal the crown? Read our Sony RX100 III review, and find out! (minimize)

This compact camera excites with a large sensor, bright zoom lens and the body photographers have been waiting for! Panasonic's first large-sensor, enthusiast compact camera is here, and it's a beauty! The 12.8-megapixel Panasonic LX100 opts for a slightly larger body than most rivals, but that also frees up room for the same generous sensor size used in the company's Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Paired with a bright zoom lens and a powerful processor, the result is an enthusiast-grade compact that takes really great photos, day or night! Does the LX100 belong at the top of your wish-list? Find out now in our detailed Panasonic LX100 review! (minimize)

The truly 'micro' Micro Four Thirds camera gets worthwhile updates and improvements The Panasonic GM5 takes what was great about the GM1 and improves upon it immensely. While still keeping a lightweight and compact design -- that's practically pocketable even with the 12-32mm kit lens -- the Panasonic GM5 manages to includes a fully-functional, albeit small, electronic viewfinder. Creative lighting options are expanded by the addition of a hot-shoe and external flash support, plus, ergonomics and customization are subtly yet noticeably improved. The image quality remains unchanged and impressive, and performance is still excellent with slight improvements in some areas. Read our in-depth Panasonic GM5 review for all the details! (minimize)

A new and improved exterior meets a tried and true imaging pipeline!
Remaining largely the same under-the-hood compared to its X20 predecessor, the Fujifilm X30 brings most of its improvement to the exterior: an EVF over the flawed optical viewfinder, a larger, higher-res tilting LCD screen, updated styling and controls, and Wi-Fi. All combined, the Fuji X30 is a more capable, easier to use camera. Maintaining its impressive image quality chops and performance capabilities, the X30 brings welcomed improvements to Fuji's unique X-Trans premium compact camera lineup.

The first truly 'micro' Micro Four Thirds camera packs the power of the GX7 into your pocket
While we may have called the GX7 the Micro Four Thirds model we've all been waiting for, the Panasonic GM1 make take its spot, or at least be called the perfect companion camera to the GX7 or other larger M43 cameras. The GM1 packs the same sensor and processor as the GX7 providing excellent image quality and performance as well as offering a ton of advanced features such as a touchscreen LCD and robust Wi-Fi capabilities. The super-compact size lets this well-built camera go practically anywhere, while still retaining the larger sensor and the flexibility of interchangeable lenses.

A serious photographer's digital camera in a small package
Panasonic's deluxe pocket digital camera line has long been a favorite of photographers as a capable, small take-everywhere camera, when lugging their pro camera was too much to ask. Improved in several ways, the Panasonic LX7 digital camera is a joy to shoot. Key refinements that will appeal to photographers include a manual aperture ring, a manual focus toggle, and a faster, high quality lens. As we've come to expect from Lumix digital cameras, the LX7 also has rock-solid image stabilization, and the new level gauge helps straighten your horizons. Optical quality stands out as the major enhancement, which gave us the confidence to place key subjects in corners without worry that they'd be too soft. The new faster lens -- a full stop faster -- allows faster shutter speeds in low light, and delivers fairly nice bokeh as well. We enjoyed shooting with the Lumix LX7, and felt comfortable with it as our only digital camera on several outings.

A state-of-the-art waterproof camera packed with a ton of advanced features, including 1080/60p video
The Panasonic TS5 waterproof camera should thrill photo geeks who love advanced features and functionality. It's the first camera in its class to deliver advanced Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities that includes remote capture when paired with a smartphone or tablet. Moreover, the TS5 boasts full 1080p HD video recording at 60 frames per second and 10fps full-res still burst shooting. Unfortunately, the TS5's image quality proved to be mediocre overall, and its dedicated underwater mode photos came out somewhat flat with muted colors. Still, it could be the right compact waterproof model for those who demand the latest high tech gadgetry. Check out our 2013 Best Waterproof Cameras shootout for our Panasonic TS5 review. (minimize)

Sony RX100 takes the premium pocket camera crown!
We were so impressed with the Sony RX100's specs, we had to rush and give it a complete review in a hurry to see if it truly measured up. We were not disappointed. The Sony RX100's 1-inch-type, 20.2-megapixel sensor, f/1.8, 3.6x lens, and small body combine to create a new pocket digital camera benchmark. Sony didn't skimp on special features for amateurs or enthusiasts, either. Click here to see our Sony RX100 review! (minimize)

The best pocket camera gets even better
We've put it through its paces, and the Sony RX100 II really sets a new bar for pocket camera performance. The original RX100 already dominated the competition, and the new model is a substantial step up from it in a number of areas. The RX100 II adds a tilting rear LCD, built-in Wi-Fi, and a multi-interface shoe (a flash hot shoe with an internal connector for attaching things like a high-quality external EVF or a microphone). The biggest change, though, is a switch to a backside-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. This improved high-ISO/low-light JPEG performance by more than a full stop in our tests, albeit a bit less so in the RAW files. (Sony's done quite a bit to improve their JPEG processing lately.)
