This is a further refined version of the worldwide popular RX100 which was the first real premium compact camera that has been released back in 2012.

Some of the top features include the super high performance, a 315 phase detection autofocus pixels, super-high 4K resolution and color ratio. The front-end LSI chip, the 25 contrast detection AF system and its 24 frame/second burst rate all make this camera just outstanding. No wonder the RX100 is one fan favorite among both the new starters and the hobby photographers.
The competition for releasing the best Premium Compact cam was very strong in 2016. This is exactly why Panasonic decided to release its super updated compact camera, which went into competition with the likes of the legendary RX100 and the extra developed G7X of Canon.
This cam is indeed so competitive that it’s very hard to distinguish quality-wise from the other two cameras. The features which make this camera stand out from the crowd include a 20 MP 1” type sensor paired up with 2,8, f/1.4 fast-built lens, super high photo quality, 4K resolution rate coupled with a fantastic 4K UHD video recording functionality and further photo modes.

When you get more familiar with cameras especially DSLR cameras, you will realize that each year it’s more or less the same brands and same yet further developed new releases of older models are the ones who rock the most. Nikon’s D3400 is no exception from that.

The best DSLR cameras for intermediate users
When it comes to high-profile intermediate cameras, the choice is not easy as to which one to feature first and second. We couldn’t help but took this very special Pentax model as our first choice, simply because it sports so many outstanding and unique features, which other cameras simply lack. And all is paired up with a very friendly price too.
The cam’s unique features include a bright pentaprism viewfinder, a twin-dial design and a very specific cover and construction that make this machine still the best choice for nature photographers who want to take pics even in extreme weather conditions. If you are such a photographer, we suggest you look into buying the weather sealed lenses by the way.
The burst performance is excellent when compared to other pro machines of the sort, for instance, there is an intelligent in-built resolution system and Pixel Shift Resolution functionality too. The camera has a tilt-shift LCD screen which makes for easy use. The battery life is bordering perfection, and the price is lower than what you would expect to pay for such a hi-tech DSLR camera.
