How well does the RX100iv's stacked sensor compare to the RX100iii?  Check out DPR's studio shot comparison.

The 20MP chip, also in the Cyber-shot RX10 II, pushes all the pixel circuitry onto a separate layer, creating room for high-speed processing within the chip. See how it performs against its peers in our studio test scene. Read more

Indeed, it is likely that computers will one day be able to generate photos from nothing (as compared to referencing a database).  However, even then I think candid and family photos will still be taken by a camera (what kind of camera though is anybody's guess).
What will we do with all the data we accumulate from photos? On a daily basis, Internet juggernauts like Google, Yahoo, Facebook or Microsoft use highly so

And the winner is....
While the megapixel race has slowly come to a halt, there's a different kind of battle going on, and that's over zoom power. Ten years ago superzooms commonly had 10X and 12X lenses, and in 2015 the average is around 50X. We took a closer look at five current models to see which long zoom camera ranks supreme. Read more
