Re: RX100 video IQ impressive

"Compared to my G1X, LX3 and X10, this camera is 2nd generation. Streets ahead... "

You are correct. But the RX100 video quality is streets behind any mid-level 2012 camcorder in "IQ", not to mention capability.

I don't mean to ruin your day, but your post title is a might misleading (maybe it should be 'video beats second-rate still camera videos by a lot'). No one has ever claimed that the cameras you named have good video, except people who don't use video cameras.

There's a whole thread on the video of the RX100 you might have looked at.

This not to say the video is bad; it is indeed impressive. It is just not state of the art in consumer video.
