The RX1 changed how I take pictures
Jan 19, 2013

When I first got it, I thought it was simply going to be for low light and situations where I wanted to minimize DOF.  But the more I looked at it's results, I found I was using it in different situations.  I got it to complement my NEX system.  But.. the game changer came in being given a Panasonic FZ200 for Christmas.

In close work, the RX1 is king.  In mid-distance work, I simply zoom in with my feet and I still use the RX1.  If I need to shoot further away, the FZ200 does a great job, though I need to shoot in RAW and twiddle with the images in PP. I generally don't want DOF when I use the RX1, and I really want it when I use the FZ200 (which by virtue of the small sensor... gives it to me).

I've found that I haven't used my RX100 or the NEX system since.

Have any of you changed your shooting preferences since getting the RX1?
