As well as being compared against other pro digicams, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V is also often compared to boutiques, mirrorless, travel zooms, super zooms, entry-level DSLRs and digicams. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V's top rivals come from Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VA and the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI) and Panasonic (such as the Lumix DC-ZS200 (Lumix DC-TZ200) and the Lumix DC-TS7 (Lumix DC-FT7))

compared toPro digicam competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V compared to other pro digicam competitors include: it has a slightly wider wide angle lens (24 mm vs 28 mm), has a slightly higher resolution screen (1,228k dots vs 1,040k dots), shoots faster continuously (24 fps vs 10 fps), has a screen which flips out and has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD).

However, on average it doesn't have a touch screen, doesn't have an OLED screen (LCD vs OLED), has a slightly shorter battery life (220 shots vs 280 shots), is slightly more expensive ($881.49 vs $548.89) and doesn't support an external flash.
