these pictures were taken right after another, using the two cameras i had with me: the samsung galaxy nexus (back camera) and the new sony rx100.
granted, it’s unfair to compare a camera to a smartphone (even though it’s “optimized for low light conditions”) – but it does give you a pretty good idea what the rx100 is capable of.

pictures are completely unaltered (except for downsizing and the watermark).
 

and now, to celebrate that low-light sensitivity and embrace my new-found tripod laziness, here are three recent, handheld night photos:
