To any airmiles collectors out there, Airmiles.ca has a great deal on the Sony DSC-RX100. If you are an Onyx member, you can get this camera for only 2,650 airmiles. Based on a CAD 10cents per mile, that is almost a 50% savings over the regular price for this camera.
The RX100 is a great camera for anyone looking for the so-called "best" travel camera. This is the original of now 5 models of the RX100. The newer ones obviously have newer tech and some additional bells and whistles. However, this first generation model has the two features which will beat most compact cameras and push it almost to the level of a mirrorless camera. 1. A large high quality sensor. 2. A high quality, fast f1.8 lens with a 28-100mm equivalent lens.
