I agree with everyone it is amazing to get good video in a small package, but this is also acomplished in just-as-small video cameras, with higher quality.

The problem with your argument is a consumer video camera like a Canon VIXIA or Panasonic HS900 does not have higher quality video than the RX100. You get more DOF control, and much better low-light with the larger sensor RX100, not to mention 1080p60 for smooth slow-mo.

Things like shallow DOF, and low-light are one of the main reasons why consumer video cameras are a dying bread, with little application beyond home movies.

Here is the review of the RX100 from EOSHD

For stills, I got rid of my wonderful X10 and ordered an RX100 not so much for the stills, but because the RX100 seems to be a truly fantastic video camera and an outstanding stills camera.

I agree.I have the Panasonic SD900, top of the line last years model, and I cannot for the life of me see any difference in video quality when recording same daylight scenes and playing back on my HD TV.

Have not tried indoor comparison yet, but I don't expect much if any difference between them.

Though the sd900 has better sound and longer optical telephoto range than rx100.
And easier to hold comfortably for long video recording sessions.

No 30 minute time limit either,but I hardly, if ever, record for more than 5-10 minutes at a time anyway.,
