It never ceases to amaze me how much detail the tiny Sony RX100 compact camera manages to captures whenever I use it to take a snap.
The tint form factor of the Sony RX100 means it is my carry everywhere camera mainly for snaps. I use the Sony A7Rii, A7iii and A6500 for my proper photographic work, but I still can't help loving my tiny RX100 the most - for a tiny camera with a 1" sensor it is staggeringly good.
Back in 2016 I did a field test pitting the RX100 M3 against the A7Rii to see how pictures compared shooting in low light at dawn. The below pictures are the results. The A7Rii, as one would expect with it's full frame 42mp sensor takes a better picture with way more detail and amazing dynamic range with beautiful subtle tones, but what is quite staggering is how well the tiny RX100 takes the same picture trying to emulate its bigger brother.
The newer versions of the RX100 have improved sensors, so I'll need to do a more up-to-date comparison in the near future.
Both pictures were shot in RAW and edited in Lightroom.
