Sony, one of the leaders in this market, offers an excellent looking point-and-shoot camera in Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. It has a large image sensor and 3.6x zoom. You can get super image quality pictures using the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 and that’s why it is very popular among photographers all around the world.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50
Panasonic like Olympus has been in this market for a few years now and is trying to offer customers with the futuristic point-and-shoot cameras at reasonable price. Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50 is compact with 30x zoom lens and integrated EVF. It also supports raw editing.
