Sonys latest CyberShot camera is the successor to last years RX 100, which was the best compact camera at the time. This years model is better and comes with WiFi and NFC for wireless connectivity. Sony says this camera has better picture quality than the RX 100 due to a 20.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor. RX 100 II also features one-touch smartphone connectivity thanks to NFC. Its one-touch remote technology lets you trigger shutter release from your smartphone.
