Sony has managed to pack a heck of a lot of tech into its latest Cyber-shot RX100 camera, making the seventh iteration of this very popular line perhaps the best point-and-shoot camera the electronics giant has produced to date.

For starters, there's a large 1-inch 20.1MP sensor under the hood of the RX100 VII that captures crisp images with striking detail, framed through a Zeiss lens featuring an impressive 24-200mm zoom range. Then there's the pop-up viewfinder that's barely visible when not in use, giving the little camera a neat and minimalist aesthetic.

It's fair to say this pocket rocket is one of the most expensive compact cameras currently on the market, but it's possible to save some dosh if you look hard enough. Like this offer on eBay, thanks to VideoPro, where it's listed at a much more affordable price – over 22% lower than Sony's own price tag if you're crunching numbers. So if you've been lusting after what is one of the best point-and-shoot cameras, then this is your chance.

In addition to looking after they day-to-day functioning of Digital Camera World in Australia, Sharmishta is the Managing Editor (APAC) for TechRadar as well, and helps produce two of Future's photography print magazines Down Under. Her passion for photography started when she was wandering the wilds of India studying monkeys (yes, life took a sharp turn somewhere along the way) and is entirely self-taught. That puts her in the unique position of understanding what a beginner or enthusiast is looking for in a camera or lens, and writes to help those like her on their path to developing their skills or finding the best gear. While she experiments with quite a few genres of photography, her main area of interest is nature photography – wildlife, landscapes and macro. She still prefers an optical viewfinder but is utterly fascinated with what mirrorless technology has been able to achieve. 

With an ear to the ground in the Asia-Pacific territory, she is constantly on top of camera news and breaking developments in the Australian region, in addition to sourcing local deals during big retail events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday / Cyber Monday.
