Sony Cybershot

Sony's Cyber-shot line of point & shoot cameras consists largely of low and mid-range models, but the recent addition of the RX line of cameras adds higher-end cameras to the mix.

Sony HX300

20.4 megapixel, EVF, 50.00x Zoom

Boasting an incredible 50x optical zoom (24-1,200mm equivalent) reach, the all-in-one Sony HX300 showcases one of the most versatile built-in lenses we've ever tested. This bridge camera's relatively small 1/2.3-inch imaging sensor means its image quality won't rival the output of a DSLR or premium compact -- especially in low light -- but it's definitely capable of capturing photos few other cameras can. Packed with features including Full HD video at up to 60p in a comfortable, ergonomic body, this superzoom is ideal to take on any photo trip when you need to travel light.

Sony RX1

24.3 megapixel, Mid-Sized, Non-Zoom

With a full-frame sensor placed inside a compact body -- married with a fast, sharp 35mm Carl Zeiss lens -- the Sony RX1 achieves what was once almost unthinkable -- an almost-pocketable camera that delivers stellar hi-res images. The RX1 is the ultimate everyday street shooter or second camera for serious enthusiasts, pros (and trendsetters) alike, but its high price means it's not for everybody.

Sony RX1R

24.3 megapixel, Mid-Sized, Non-Zoom

Sony achieves the seemingly impossible with the Sony RX1R, surpassing the resolving power of its award-winning, full-frame RX1 compact camera by removing the optical low-pass filter and tweaking JPEG processing. Most of the gains are found in the RX1R's JPEGs, with RAW files showing only the slightest improvements in sharpness and detail. Photographers who choose the Sony RX1R over its near twin will have to weigh these advantages over the new model's increased risk for moire and aliasing. But since the RX1R is available at the same price, it's a risk many might find worth taking.

Sony RX10

20.2 megapixel, EVF, 8.33x Zoom

Conventional wisdom says that if you want the best pictures, you want interchangeable lenses. The Sony RX10 turns that theory on its head, substituting the interchangeable lenses for just the one fixed lens -- but what a great optic it is! With a bright f/2.8 aperture and a generous 24-200mm equivalent range, you'd need a lot of bulky, expensive glass to match the RX10's lens on your SLR or CSC. The RX10 also has a huge advantage over its bridge camera rivals, thanks to a much larger sensor, and it debuts some interesting features including full-sensor readout for video capture. Is it pricey? Sure, but we think it's worth it. This could just be the camera which convinces you that interchangeable lenses are overkill!

Sony's Cyber-shot RX100 takes the cake as the most premium of pocket cameras, with a much larger sensor, a very bright lens, and enough modes and special features to keep a tinkerer busy for a good long time.

Sony RX100 II

20.2 megapixel, Compact, 3.60x Zoom

Sony has once again raised the bar for advanced compact cameras with the RX100 II. Building on the wildly popular RX100, the RX100 II adds a tilting rear LCD screen, flash/accessory hot shoe, built-in Wi-Fi, and a backside-illuminated (BSI) sensor for improved low-light and high-ISO performance. It's a bit pricey at $750, but there's simply no better pocket camera on the market, as of this writing.

Sony RX100 III

20.2 megapixel, Compact, 2.92x Zoom

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!

Sony TX30

18.2 megapixel, Ultra Compact, 5.00x Zoom

The Sony TX30 perhaps takes the best pictures of any compact waterproof cameras in its class, but its ultra-compact design makes it hard to hang onto underwater, and its 3.3-inch high-resolution OLED touchscreen is virtually unusable and unviewable while submerged. However, if you're looking for a rugged, element-defying camera with a sharp sense of style, and you don't intend to use it for photographing aquatic life, then the Sony TX30 just may be the model for you.
