Sony compact camera digital cameras have good reviews on average and across all digital cameras Sony is one of the superior brands.

The DSC-QX10-B supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other recently released digital cameras which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras which support WiFi connectivity and we think the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price], and the Canon IXUS 285 HS[plb_3191157_price] which has better reviews; or the Nikon S7000[plb_3851301_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
