Sony has unveiled its latest edition of the RX100 compact cameras with the Cyber-shot RX100 IV.

Above is another one of the cool tech displays from Sony’s booth at CES. It shows the sensor size comparison for Sony cameras starting with a compact camera with a 1/2.3″ sensor on the right side and moving up to a full frame size sensor on the left side.
As many of you know, the full frame Sony 35mm sensor is found in the Sony A7 Series and the A99 SLT camera. The APS-C sensor is found in cameras like the Sony A6000 and A5100. Sony is using the CX Format nomenclature for 1″ sensors like what is found in the Sony RX100 and RX10.
Hasselblad has no shame. The nonsensical Hasselblad Stellar camera is on sale for $999.99 (reg. $3299.99) for Black Friday. The problem with that, of course, is that the Stellar is a rebadged Sony RX100, which is on sale for a much more reasonable $448 (reg. $498).
So, even when discounted by $2300, you can still buy two Sony RX100 models for the price of the Stellar and have money left over for memory cards and accessories.
