Sony RX100 VII review - Quality

Quality

To measure and compare the resolution and noise of the Sony RX100 VII, I shot this scene with it followed by the Canon G5X II (which shares the same sensor as the G7X III) using the same focal length and aperture setting of f4 at all ISO values. I shot in JPEG and RAW and intend to add a RAW comparison when the files are all supported by Adobe, but for now I’m presenting their out-of-camera JPEG quality, taking 100% crops from the area marked by the red rectangle.
