SD memory card

This camera supports an MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many similar spec digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If you want a camera with a better memory card type then you might want to look at the PowerShot G1X (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the PowerShot G12 ($675.12) (MMC|MMC+|SD|SDHC|SDXC) both from Canon or the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

MOS Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CMOS sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact cameras that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CMOS sensor and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10, the Canon PowerShot G1X, and the Sony DSC-HX300 ($540.86) is also worth considering.

A great electronic viewfinder that doesn't increase the size of the svelte Sony Cybershot R 100 III is one of the camera's highlights
Plus it offers excellent performance, photo and video quality
Excellent image quality
Broad feature set
Good lowlight performance
The camera shuts down when you retract the viewfinder, the autofocus system could be more consistent, and it has poor battery life
Slippery body
No touch screen
The tradeoff of the small, pocketable form is that the various function buttons are tiny, but the lensconcentric adjustment ring compensates
Pricey, slow startup and shutdown speeds, slightly bigger and heavier than previous model
