I think many people know Sony better for TVs, walkmans, or other electronics.But look at the NEX series, RX100, then RX1... At least Sony is reading your moans and is trying to make cameras of your dreams. Guys from Fujifilm as well.Yes, they are still not perfect and pricey, but they are not cheap to make. And at this price point, you can't expect it to be best-seller.Look at Canon and Nikon, still playing market leaders and trying to convince you with crap cameras. Actually, they are doing nothing now.Big up for Sony.
RX100 is really good. And I'm not a biased to any maker or brand.More I use it more I love it. Pictures are very detailed, video is amazing. It blows any other compact. Actually after RX100 - m43 makes no sense.Before you critisize - you must use it, and respect the fact that it fits any your pocket.
Nokia 808 kills samsung S3 in one hit. Even iPhone 5 is better than S3.
Some samples in the REVIEW galery suspiciuously looks were taken from PREVIEW day out testing. But wasn't that camera PRE-product?
Whose girlfriend (wife) was taking pictures this time? :)
Great reading. Iceland is amazing.But personally vertical framing for landscapes just doesn't look effective.
Looking at improvements over S100, It should have been named S105.
I must say, I had a good laugh when I saw S110 thumbnail in the "Latest reviews" column on the right. Good one :))
I fell like I won the jackpot with RX100
J D Tranquil: I would love to see a change in IQ rather than the added wi-fi capability. I just want the RX100 so badly.
Do it man. Just get RX100.
I must say, it does look sexy. And metal always wins over plastic. Good effort from fuji.
90% shots it will be set to infinity. So MF shouldn't a problem.
SLT-A57 - 78% - GoldRX100 - 78% - Silver
Digital Suicide: And they had to spoil it with tiny viewfinder from D300s/D7000.
Ok, my bad. But still too pricey.
NO. Too much for it. Not buying. Nikon won't get my hard earned money for this overpriced D300s with bigger sensor. Staying with film instead.
And they had to spoil it with tiny viewfinder from D300s/D7000.
Now that's more like it. This is much more affordable FF camera than D800. It would be nice to have one along with my FM3A and to use MF lenses on both bodies.
SDF: DPR preview, first paragraph - "We were surprised (and delighted) when Sony decided to create the RX100 - its first compact camera for serious photographers, but that's nothing compared to our surprise when we were told about the RX1. This isn't just Sony's most serious compact camera, but arguably the most serious compact camera we've ever seen." This is big coming from DPR.
No. RX1 will compete in the FF segment. So if mighty RX100 among compacts got only silver award, RX1 in FF should get "paper medal" award.
ianimal: We have RX100 and RX1 now. Maybe there will be a RX10 with APS-C sensor? I would prefer a 16-50mm F2.8 retractable power zoom lens with such a camera. Don't know if that is possible. I guess Sony will make it small and select the lens spec. to get it as small as they want. If a RX10 will ever be made. The RX1 is charming, remains me of 80's-90's small 35mm film cameras with fixed 35mm lens.
RX10 with APS-C would be a cannibalizm of their own NEX series.
1/2000s in a, as they say: ..."advanced, unique combination of size and performance that’s never before been realized in the world of digital cameras..."Even LX5 ages ago had 1/4000s
