We really love mirrorless system cameras but if you you look for a camera having an almost DSLR quality in an almost compact camera size than the Sony RX100 may be the best camera availble now. And there are tons of reviews on the web and the reaction is extremely positive. I think the Sony RX100 may be one of the best new camera products of the year! Don’t know if Sony was aware that they just made a topseller camera! So it’s time to give you a short roundup of all important RX100 reviews. But before take a look at that sexy tiny new Gariz leather case for the RX100. It has been announced a couple of days ago and you can already buy it on eBay:

Photoclubalpha: “At the best – ISO 80 to 125, stopped down just one full step from full aperture – the RX100 can match or better the typical output of a 21 megapixel full frame DSLR with 24-105mm lens.”
Photographyblog: “The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is the first truly pocketable camera to offer a DSLR experience, and in that regard it could almost be seen as something of a bargain – it’s certainly deserving of our highest Essential! accolade.”
Steve Huff: “In my hand the camera feels small but solid with a nice build. If it did have an EVF it would be flat-out my dream pocket cam.”
Cnet Asia: “The svelte shooter offers reliable programmed modes, customizable buttons, fast autofocus performance and good image quality packed in a sleek chassis which may appeal to enthusiasts and beginners alike. This is why we chose to award the RX100 our CNET Asia Editor’s Choice.”
Outbackphoto tested the RX100 RAW and Lens distortion.
Luminous Landscape (Click here): “The summary judgement for me is that the new Sony RX100 is hands-down the most appealing pocket-sized digital camera yet.” It’s again a must read article!
EosHD (Click here) posted a full RX100 review: “If you haven’t yet entered the DSLR video world, the RX100 is capable of similar results in video mode and even a similar standard of stills. This is amazing and I cannot believe we’re talking about a pocket camera.”
Techradar: “Sony has produced a truly great camera that should also appeal to anybody wanting to trade up from a mobile phone or budget compact camera.”
