Huge Deal Breaker - Sony RX 100 iii (3)
May 19, 2014

I did not realize until I viewed the video on the main DPREVIEW page on the RX 100 iii that the hot shoe is Gone!

Wow, for my needs as a compact video solution I need external audio and Sony has a very nice microphone matched to the RX 100 ii (2) and having a hot shoe/smart shoe etc. is a deal breaker for me on Any camera.

I'll say again what I said before the light bulb went off just now is the viewfinder and reduction in focal length is a bad idea.

I would pay $200 more for the RX 100 iii (3) if they kept everything the same but did a larger sensor and/or larger camera body (better ergonomics). A small body means a very small viewfinder to go in line with the body so it makes sense that way.

yes, I know no one is forcing me to buy anything etc... But loosing a hot shoe on a $800 camera is horse-hockey !
