Best pocket camera I've owned so far.
11 months ago

Ok, so I got this camera from Hong Kong 2 days ago. Paid $750 for it.

It's really, really good. Except for one thing. It's huge.

I thought it would be the same size as most of the small pocket cameras, but it's twice that size. That said, the lens is massive, the click ring on the front is solid as a tank, the LCD is articulated, and the images are incredible compared to the other smaller cameras I've had. To me they look EXACTLY like the ones from the Sony RX-100 I had for a month and then returned (it had a hard time focusing, maybe I had a bad one). Something this camera can do it amazing HDR-Art and regular HDR images, as well as the 30 fps bursts including pre-shooting that I've seen no other camera be able to do. With that I get shots no one else can of kids jumping into pools, dirt bikes going through puddles, the list goes on and on. 4x zoom is pretty weak, but I've noticed that anything more than 4x zoom with a small lens usually gives crappy results anyways. If I need to zoom more I use my DSLR.

So in my opinion, an incredibly versatile camera with (as far as I can tell) excellent image quality, but seriously chunky. It's pocketable, but just barely...
