I always carry my Sony HX-90V compact on holidays, it goes in the pocket and has a great Zeiss zoom lens, but every time I down load on the PC the pictures look so much more pleasing than my A37/standard 18-55 kit lens, The colours are far nicer and overall its a better camera in some ways. Yes, I know the sensor is small, but if you shoot within the cameras capability, it never ceases to amaze me with its colour rendition and exposure accuracy. I have never been a big fan of Sony Jpeg colours, but this is different. No idea why but it does a great job.

I've never owned or used a compact Sony, but my Mom has had a couple of compact Panasonics that have amazed me in the same way. "Within the cameras capabilities," are multitudes of amazing pictures even on small sensors.
Speaking of tiny sensor camera photos, sometime back I made an album with a selection of only tiny sensor camera photos. The caption of each photo has the year and the name of the camera used. They start in 2000 -- January 2000 when I got my first digital, an Olympus D-340R 1.3mp.
Hi guys are you still there, I have just invested in a Bridge camera and apart from my HX-90V compact I have no other Sony product, but I guess I am still eligible to be a member? OK, its a Panny Lumix FZ 330 with a Leica constant F/2.8 zoom, I wish I had moved over years ago, but the quality just wasn't there then, it is now, even with a small sensor it produces superb pics with colours that are in my opinion nicer than Sony, still that's objective.
