DPReview on the RX100 II: That intangible 'shooting experience' criticism
7 months ago

To quote from DPR's RX100 II review just posted:

Our disappointment with the slightly unengaging control wheel and shooting experience has remained unchanged since we reviewed the RX100. We want a compact camera with a big sensor, we really do, but we want to not feel like we're shooting with a compact camera. We want the convenience of a camera that will, if we want, make some or all of our shooting decisions for us with reliability and fit easily into a bag or big pocket. But we still want to take control and feel a connection between ourselves and the pictures we're making. That's not asking too much, is it?

They made the same comment sort of comments about the RX100 with regards to the 'shooting experience' - comparing it to much larger compact cameras instead of other truly pocketable cameras.

Do DPR staff just not 'get' the RX100/ RX100 II?
