2013 Advanced Compact of the Year

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II: £619

The original RX100 was our winner in this category last year, but not wanting to sit on their laurels, Sony's engineers have tinkered with it a bit more to make it an even better proposition, whether you're looking for a small compact to complement your DSLR or just want a quality camera to have with you all the time.

This includes a new back-illuminated 1in 20.2MP Exmor R sensor with an improved ISO range, a 3in, 1,229k-dot display that now allows it to be pulled out from the body for more comfortable shooting angles, and Wi-fi and NFC connectivity.

With a fast and sharp f/1.8 zoom lens (3.6x), intuitive control ring that provides quick control of a range of settings and a quality metal finish, the RX100 II is perfect for discreet shooting or travel photography.
