At this time, everyone wanting to buy a point and shoot camera should have at least once heard of the sony RX100 (released three years back). With great reviews and listed as among the best compact camera at par with Panasonic LumixTZ70, Canon powershot G7, Fujifilm X100T etc…
First time hearing about Nepal and trekking at the Kathmandu, I imagined the great Everest, and all that unforgiving landscape, challenging terrain to explore and experience.
