DxOMark Looks at New Category for Advance Compacts

DxOMark Logo

DxO Labs has published detailed RAW-based image quality data and DxOMark Sensor rankings on its www.dxomark.com website for Canon PowerShot G11, S90 and EOS 7D, Sony A500 and A550, Pentax K7 and Nikon D300s and D3000.

The interesting thing is on the new compact camera category, which DxO refers to as Advanced Compacts. This is a new category for Raw-shooting compacts, like the G11 and S90 of Canon and the Olympus EP1, that are beginning to rival the image quality of entry-level DSLRs.

DxOmark.com results indicated that the best Advanced Compacts demonstrate remarkable image quality performance, especially considering their very compact form factor.
