compared toEntry-level DSLR competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V compared to entry-level DSLR competitors include: it has a slightly higher resolution screen (1,228k dots vs 1,037k dots), has image stabilization (lens vs none), shoots faster continuously (24 fps vs 5 fps), has a screen which flips out and has much more focus points (315 vs 39).

However, on average it has a significantly smaller screen (3" vs 3.2"), much smaller viewfinder (0.22x vs 0.61x), takes significantly lower resolution photos (20 MP vs 24 MP), doesn't have a touch screen and has a much smaller sensor (nikon CX 13.2x8.8mm vs APS-C 23.5x15.6mm).
