This is a comparison between three compact cameras which are designed for three specific reasons. Two of these are from the Canon stable and the other one is from Sony. Let’s find out more about them.
The Canon S110
The S110 comes with a 12.1 megapixels sensor and the latest DIGIC 5 image processing system. the S110 has a 5x optical zoom reaching a 35mm focal length range of 24mm to 120mm. a fully capacitative touch screen means using the main controls of the camera and using it is that much easier. The lens has a maximum aperture of f/2 which means both low light photography and creating soft out of focus background for portrait (or flower photography) shots is easy. However the biggest drawback of the camera when compared with the Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100 is its smaller sensor size. At only 1/1.7″ this is much smaller and thus bound to have some noticeable difference in the image quality, especially when compared to brighter f/1.8 lens of the Sony and its BIONZ processor.
Canon PowerShot G15
The Canon PowerShot G15 has the same f/1.8 lens as the Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100 which makes it at par with the Sony and slightly better than the Canon S110. the lens has a 35mm format equivalent range of 28-140mm. it uses the 12.1 megapixel 1/1.7″ type CMOS sensor this makes the 1” sensor of the Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100 the largest in this comparison. The G15 also uses the latest DIGIC 5 image processing system and fully uses the f/1.8 bright lens. the G15 belongs to Canon’s acclaimed line of G series cameras. One feature that the compact users would love is the 4 stop Image Stabilization system. the rear screen is a non-articulated one of 920k dots resolution. It has a small tunnel type optical viewfinder, not the type that DSLR users would be thrilled to use. the focal length ranges from 28-140mm which is the longest among the three cameras in discussion here. The distinct advantage of the G15 over the G12, the model that it replaces, is the faster auto-focusing capabilities. Since both the G15 and the S110 uses the same sensor, they both offer the same ISO range of 80 to 12800.
Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100
The Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100 has a very fast f/1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T 3.6x optical zoom lens. The fast aperture of the lens makes it ideally suitable for the purpose of low light photography. In fat it is extremely sensitive to low light photography adjusting to different sources of light easily. Together with Sony’s BIONZ image processing engine the effective noise in the images are drastically reduced. As such even when shooting with high ISO, noise levels are very less. It helps as the 1” sensor makes full use of its size and captures more light than normal compact camera sensors can. The f/1.8 aperture is also suitable for beautiful bokeh by creating a shallow depth of field. The focal length ranges from 28-100mm on a 35mm format equivalent.
