According to Time Magazine, Sony Cyber-Shot Camera RX 100 is among the most important inventions of 2012. In the same top, we will find the Curiosity Rover and Google Glasses.
Why is this camera so special? We can start with the innovative design, the 2.5 cm CMOS sensor and, most important, the fact that this camera can do many of the things normally done by a DSLR camera. I guess that’s the reason it was recommended and included in the top inventions of 2012.
Sony Cyber-Shot Camera RX 100 has the ability to save RAW images and has a very bright lens. Also, the amount of noise is very low, even at high ISO. It is known fact that cameras tend to become smaller and lighter as technology advances, but 2012 marked an important development in this direction.
