1. Sony DSC-RX1
Claming to be the world’s first compact camera with a 35mm full-frame sensor, the RX1 aims to deliver DSLR quality imaging but in a much smaller body. The 24.3-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor will allow more light in to produce images with great clarity, while the Carl-Zeiss 35mm F2 fixed lens should let you get nice and close to pictorial targets. At 70mm thick and just 482g in weight, it will also be less of burden carrying around on your hols without compromising on the snapping quality.
