Nope, real person here, but thanks. Never have posted any of my shots and probably never will, that is just me. But if I ever change my mind I will let you know. Now back to the topic at hand...the amazing RX100...hope you are enjoying yours.

This may be a very nice camera - but $650 is nuts.

Not for those that can afford it. If this price wasn't generating Sony any sales, do you think it would be that price? I don't knock any company that prices their product as high as people are willing to pay. Would you do any differently?

It's the price of being able to play with the latest toy.

No doubt it's expensive, but due to its small size it's easy to forget what it is: a premium fixed-lens camera with many manual controls. So while it's tempting to compare it to the HX20V, 770EXR, 260HS, etc; really you should be comparing it to things like the LX7, X100, G1X, etc — some of which are at roughly around the same price point as the RX100.

The RX100 looks like a bargain compared to what Leica charge for their P&S cameras!

Is there a way to reduce wind noise during video recording?

Very good point. And so far price it does not seem to be impacting sales as it shows people are willing to pay for quality.

so how many people bought the RX100 ? and how many bought something else ?

do you have acces to any sales figures ?

Here in Holland it does not seem to sale well, stores and intenet based stores have plenty in stock.

CNET has terrible camera reviews by people who don't know crap about photography. I love my RX100 but I certainly don't need the idiots at CNET to verify my purchase.
