Last week I was on vacation up in Michigan and took a brand new camera that I had purchased especially for the trip with me only to figure out that it was too bulky to carry around. The Olympus OM-D EM-5 is a fantastic mirrorless camera if you don’t mind the size and weight. I did. So I ended up using my iPhone for most of the trip. When I got back home, I sold the Olympus and another mirrorless camera I had recently purchased (Sony NEX-7) and decided to just be happy with my iPhone… at least till my next vacation this Fall. But then yesterday I saw the announcements for the Sony DSC-RX100 camera and it looks like it might be a perfect travel camera for me. The RX100 is very compact, but boasts 20.2 MP, houses a 1″ CMOS sensor and a 3.6x Carl Zeiss 28-100mm zoom lens. The $648.00 price seems high for a point and shoot camera. but I might splurge on the Sony DSC-RX100, which is currently available for pre-order from BHPhoto (affiliate link).
