Re: The RX100 is not a good video camera, as test shows

"Mark041" has started this thread over on AVSforums. In it he shows 3 of the worst still grabs I've ever seen from any camera in the beginning, then goes on to say the A77 shoots "soft" video and calls my nephew chubby (who is 10 years old by the way).

Mark is a great guy.

"And I am not sure why you keep comparing it to camcorders anyways. Sony never claimed RX100 to be a camcorder; it just have a very good video mode, which would satisfy most customers, except for a few like you. So for you, the obvious choice is a dedicated camcorder. For others like me, I simply enjoy the freedom of one less gadget to carry around."

An excellent summary: not quite as good as a similarly-priced camcorder, but really quite good, and certainly much better than other still cameras with a video mode.
