Choosing the best one-inch sensor travel camera
This summer I’ve been suffering rather from one-inch-sensor overload. in fact, on one or two occasions I felt like screaming what with all the facts and figures to sift through and hundreds of images to process.
First came the Leica C-Lux, with its stupendous 24-360mm-equivalent zoom. Then I got my hands on the latest version of the Sony RX100 — the Mark VI edition, also with a long zoom. It’s faster, but falls short of the Leica by a full 160mm. The review of the Leica C-Lux has already been published on Macfilos and tomorrow I’m adding a review of its competitor, the RX100 VI. Both are great cameras and will do any traveller proud, both fit in a pocket — although it is the Sony which fits best — and both offer great image quality and all-round excellence.
But which should you go for? Following the Sony review, I will pen an assessment of the pros and cons of both cameras and attempt the impossible — to make a firm recommendation. First, though, tomorrow brings the in-depth review of the Sony. It has been my companion for two months and fitted snugly into my trouser pocket on my recent visit to Hong Kong.
