As the traditional consumer market for point-and-shoot cameras continues to decline, how do we beat the smartphones? is a question that camera manufacturers have all been asking themselves. Their answer, it seems, is pretty simple: bigger sensors. This is true of Sony’s renowned RX100 line, Canon’s G1 X Mark II (and new G7 X), and now Panasonic has entered the fray in a very big way with the LX100. They were a little late to the game, but that shouldn’t matter: the LX100 may be the best advanced compact camera money can buy. If you, you know, actually have that money.
