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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With a terrific lens and a great full-frame sensor, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 delivers the best photos we've seen from a fixed-lens camera. But that doesn't come cheap.
