Sony RX100 III

Sony’s RX100 III is pricey, but it’ll make you forget that the phone in your pocket can also take photos. The 20.1-megapixel powerhouse features a 1-inch sensor, which is huge for a compact camera. Coupled with a bright, f/1.8-2.8 lens, it turns snapshots taken in less-than-optimal light — meaning all indoor shots — into sharp, low-noise portraits and still lifes. And when sunlight makes it hard to see the tilting display, you can frame images using the pop-up electronic viewfinder. [$800; shop.sony.com]
