Sony DSC-RX1 Cybershot Full frame digital Camera

Ok, not the first compact you might look for if you’re new to photography because of the high spec (and price), I had to add it to my list because it’s so damn good. The RX1 is so much more than just a compact. With it’s full frame 24.3 CMOS sensor,  a f/2.0 aperture, the bright Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* lens and a price tag of $3,735 (£2,479), this one is for the pro’s……. now let’s look at some more affordable compacts with great specs!
