Best Compact Digital Camera

 

 In this post, We’ll do a comparison for the selection of camera. We have done a comparison for a mirrorless camera before, and this time, We’ll explain the pros and cons through comparison among 4 different models.

 These days, mirrorless cameras are getting popular, but the price is considerable. Also if you use large size of lens on your camera, it will lose its portability. In that case, compact camera will be the best alternative for you.

 Since there have been a huge development on compact cameras, there isn’t much  differences between mirrorless camera and compact camera. One of the biggest difference is, whether it’s detachable or all in one.

 Picture quality was not great due to a small image sensor before, but now you will be able to get a good quality of picture with a compact camera as well. The biggest advantage of compact camera is portability. Small and slim size that is fit into pocket or beg, is just perfect to carry around. 

Comparison of 4 models will be Panasonic LX7 / Sony RX100 / Fujifilm XF1 / Canon G15

All of models are the most recent models, and they are very high-end cameras which have awesome new features.

Examining Products

 

 

Panasonic LX7

 

 

The most important criteria for selecting good camera would be the lens and the image sensor. Panasonic uses high-end Leica lens, so they have a little advantage on lens compared to other companies.

 

LUMIX LX7 have a lens that has a 12.7 million pixel of F1.4 Leica lens. Among 4 models, it has the highest quality lens. While other companies appeal with interesting features rather than the good quality of pictures, Panasonic have put more focus on getting a great picture.

SONY RX100

 

 

When you look at the Sony RX100, it has all the portability and performance in small neat impression. Also TIME magazine have selected RX100 as a “The best invention of  2012”

 

RX100 has F1.8 of Carl Zeiss Lens, 20.2 million pixel, 1 inch CMOS Sensor, so it doesn’t seem to have any inferiority even if we compare this to high-end mirrorless cameras.

However, because of great specifications, price is little bit expensive.

 

LCD screen has 122 megapixel, so it has the clearest screen among 4 models, which will help a lot when shooting a picture.

FUJIFILM XF1

 

 

Fujifilm XF1 has differentiated by luxurious leather and refined stylish aluminum material that are in harmony with classic design. Because of luxurious classic design, XF1 could have won a product design award from “IF Design Award 2013”

 

The design of XF1 has been optimized for the mobile. General cameras have a extruded lens which could give a discomfort to carry around. On the other hand, lens of XF1 can be stored inside of the body, so it is more comfortable to carry around compared to other cameras

 

There are serveral different modes you can choose from. First one is “treble mode” when lens stays inside of the body, and “shooting mode” which makes possible to turn the power on by turning zoom ring and take the picture right away, Lastly there is a “stand by mode”.

Canon G15

 

 

Cannon G15 seems to have all the core functionality from the high-end DSLR Camera. Especially all controllers and electronic dials are very similar to DSLR.

It is only model that has a view finder, but it is not that useful.

 

Strong and durable look of camera is also another advantage of this camera and specification that is similar to mirrorless camera is very attractive.

Sensor Comparison

This is sensor comparison.

 

We have enlarged the size of the sensors at the same ratio..

When the size of sensor is larger, the area for receiving light is widened, so it will give you clearer shots with less noise even in the dark place.

Sony RX100 has the largest sensor and rest of them are almost same.

Conclusion

 

Now we have finished the comparison among 4 different top high-end compact digital cameras.

All models have different features and attractiveness

Overall, Sony RX100 has the best specification, but seems little bit expensive.

Sony RX100 and Fujifilm XF1 has a great portability, and Canon G15 has a great advantage on grip and control features.

Panasonic has the brightest lens(F 1.4).

They are all great cameras, so it would be wise to choose any of them that will be suitable for you, or the design you prefer.

 One of the greatest advantage of mirrorless camera is that you can change the lens, but there aren’t lots of people who actually carry several different lenses with their mirrorless camera and switch lens everytime they take a photo.

Therefore if you are looking for a camera that is portable , small, and inexpensive, compact digital camera will be perfect for you~!
