A nice choice if you're looking for an advanced compact with class-leading video capabilities, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV is a little expensive if you just want a good camera for shooting stills.
Out-of-the-camera photos for your perusal.
Sony's new cameras can shoot 960 frames per second for two seconds and can reach 1/32,000 second shutter speed -- for under $1,300.
One of the first implementations of the company's new stacked CMOS technology confers some useful benefits.
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.

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III is an overall great camera that delivers significant improvements over the RX100 II, but not everyone will think it's worth the extra cost.
The modest update to last year's WX300 offers an easier way to connect to Android devices and a more powerful processor, but little else.
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.
