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
b534202: Too bad, no touch screen...
So glad, no touch screen...
This could be camera of my dreams. If it performs well. Fixed 35mm is my favorite lens, so I would be absolutely fine with it. As many people are fine with Fuji X100. I would definitely get this one if I had that amount of spare money...
Heie2: I find the 3 months it is taking to review this camera and the ensuing "trickle" of sections within a complete review (which gives none of these "installments" any substance and context) insulting - how many cameras have you guys reviewed in the mean time?
DPReview - Fair and Balanced, right?
> senn_bNot correct statement. I believe DPR are not reviewing pre-production models.So, time should be counted from when it's AVAILABLE to buy - not from when it was announced.
bomac: 16 pages review and no word about switch on/off timing. In my opinion it's extremely slow especially for off. 3 sec! This is ridiculous. Canon s70 is far faster. Maybe I was unlucky with my copy. ((
Well mine is not particularly fast too. There is a big lagg between pressing ON button and lens extraction. The same with OFF.
Jan Kritzinger: I really am very interested in a fixed lens, large sensor compact, but I doubt Sigma have the capability to offer AF functionality comparable to that offered by Sony.
If this camera were made by Sony, and if it were 23/24mm, and if it had all the modern Sony features (Hybrid AF, focus peaking, etc etc etc) then I'd definitely be interested.
A fixed lens, 35mm equivalent RX100 would be just perfect.
