The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 might be a fresh take on a point-and-shoot camera, but the design ends up being a bit more trouble than it's worth.
Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
Claiming "world's smallest" honors, the new Cyber-shots are only 102mm wide but have 24-720mm lenses and one even has a pop-up viewfinder.
At IFA 2014, Sony announced a second round of its lens-style QX-series cameras that use your smartphone's screen for their viewfinder and controls.
Its lens, sensor, and LCD remain unchanged from its predecessor, but a new processor, Wi-Fi, and GPS keep the flagship megazoom from getting stale.
With a large sensor and high-quality lens, the RX10 promises great photo quality. But its feature set may not match what many folks are looking for.
Basically point-and-shoots without screens and almost no physical controls, these Wi-Fi-enabled lens cameras aim to enhance your mobile photography.
If you miss having a zoom lens, but don't want to add too much bulk and weight to your travels, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is a very good choice.
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V is an excellent compact megazoom suitable for snapshooters and enthusiasts, though the latter might be turned off by some aspects of the camera.
A new version of Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-RX1, the RX1R, incorporates a new version of the sensor without an optical low-pass filter.
It can't match some of its competition in the features department, but the Sony Cyber-shot HX300 still packs a powerful zoom lens and plenty of point-and-shoot punch.
