Lee Martin: The new Panasonic LX8 is being released at Photokina . Bigger sensor this time, worth hanging on for I think
well, Fuji will also show the new 1 inch sensor camera on Photokina. I think we should wait a bit, there will be new stuff, and maybe, targeting Pana LX8, a bit cheaper. Fuji is worse, they sell their rubbish cameras for peanuts and the good stuff at pharmacy prices.
tolleknolle: For me, an owner of the original RX100, the question is, "Is it worth paying £750 for a flippy screen and an extra stop on the tele end?" Er... no.This does not mean MkIII is bad. It means that RX100 is that good.
it means also that both are too expensive, they have been since the beginning.
pwmoree: So 1000 euro equals 1390 usdollar. Why is this lens 39 percent more expensive here in Europe? The 390 $ difference almost buys you a plane ticket to the USA to go and get one and have a weekend in NY included..
be patient, Ukip will change all that, hahahaha
Retzius: LOL this company is so lame now.
"Unless you have own/used a Leica and have been to their factory...you...have...no...idea..."
As much as I know it makes just photos, so what is so extra on it. At the time that all of them where mechanical jewels, I had accepted your statement, but today, they are just digital junk, like all others. I prefer to change my digital for a more progressive one and pay just 800$ than having a Leica that is mid aged style and limited in use for 8000$. After 5 years it is old junk, i have not any collection nostalgia, so pass over it. The "cheaper" ones are Pansonic build, and thus just a myth. I do not live with myth, I know what they are all about.
And more zoom added to the detractions of the RX100 and RX100ii.
And I want fewer pixels and better lowlight performance, I sure hope Sony listens to the likes of me and not this silly more zoom thing. Sony used to always go for more zoom, and it got Sony ignored by people interested in seriously good cameras.
As for this particular Sony sensor, the new Nikon One v3 and the Samsung NX-mini both appear to seriously threaten this Sony's sensor.
I wait Samsung to increase the lens park of the mini NX system, the camera is absolutely amazing, and correct priced.
chillgreg: Mommy!!! DPR reviewed a SAMSUNG!!! :'( MOMMYYYYYYY!!!! :'(
what a garbage is given here.
@ UnitedNations, the white racists still say the same today about the blacks after full integration. Same for anti shemite reactions, you can not change people's mind just by changing laws and situations.
And please, we are here in the photo business, not in money making by the holocaust industry system. WW2 is over since 70 years now and digging out the death of the past to bundle them to just anything what seems wrong today is the usual crap we should better avoid. In that field, the victorious write the history and you are not allowed to dare call them liars.
So, stick to DPR' Samsung review and tell us what you see different, that is why comments are here, not to make politics and unwanted or useless comparisons to events of the past.
I would like them to find an anti fungus coating, that issue is a real problem in tropical regions where every lens is for the trashcan within 3 years due to humidity. No dry cabinet stories please, that is not where the lens is when you take pictures.
SeeRoy: "...it hasn't changed in 100 years..."An imbecilic statement - typical of the hyperbole associated with this brand. I stopped watching at that point. Imagine TV directors insisting on the matchless superiority of the Image Orthicon.
that statement is right, it is still limited in function, and it is still 500% overpriced, so, nothing has changed.
km25: Shooting with Leica, no 1/8000, no high speed motor drive, no auto multi points program and AF. The leicas work best, my opion with flim. so when you push the button you know what you will get, no looking at the LCD, there is one now. After you process or it processed you are rarely surprised. It is often a second camera, for the slow intimate times, were the sutter noise is very importan, like a movie set.
all you need now is a 1932 Rolls Royce and you're on the path to glory.
that is exactly the same as if you examine hunger in the world. The solution to both is only money.
Shamael: I just have decided to buy a Pana GM1 with a 12-32 lens for 685$ new, the colored versions cost 715$. I think that I will get somewhat more camera for my money than this overpriced Rx100-3, and, it's smaller.
i do not buy cameras to use with flashes, I do not need flash and flash sync speed. I want an allround tourist camera and with a pancake lens, GM1 is smaller. Who cares about the 1 cm it is thicker, I have pants with pockets where you can put 5 of them in.
I have a dozen of cameras if I want to use one with a flash. Then concerning lenses, there are pancakes, and with an ILS system, I can chose to take a better glass if I want that.
yes you do, you give me your congrats, dude.
Geir Ove: Great camera, BUT No GPS, no interest!
Why do we have GPS info in programs like LightRoom if the cameras can't provide the GPS info?
Yeah, I know I can synch with a Phone with GPS, but IMO way to cumbersome...
DPReview: Why not start using lack of GPS as a Con in your reviews?
After all, we are spelling year 2014....
When I look on my pictures and I see what is on there, i can figure out where i have been and where I shot it, so what is a GPS good for. We have made 100 years pictures before GPS was even known, and anyone of us could say when he saw the Eiffel-tower that it has been shot in Paris. GPS just drains batteries, and all that permanent online stuff tracks you, and not only you are then the one that knows where you are at the moment and where you have been.

chj: Does Sony not know how to make a touchscreen? Otherwise this looks to be an ideal street camera.
if I want touchscreen operation I use my cellphone. Pray God that this camera will never get one.
disraeli demon: There's a sort of Holy-Trinity-plus-one of features that I've been looking for in a compact for years: fast performance, fast lens, hot shoe, articulated (or at least fold-out) screen. Canon's G-line were missing the fast lens, but when they finally added that they dumped the articulated screen. Samsung had all the hardware features but the performance was too slow. Sony add the fold-out screen but take away the hot shoe.
Are these guys deliberately teasing me?
The fully articulated screen will remain a dream, I dream of this option for the top NEX cameras since they exist, I was interested in A58 when it came out, when I saw that they dropped the fully articulated screen, I forgot it. This is also what made me drop my interest for the A7 seires. An invertable screen that can be used as a simple plastic cover on the rear is for me a must. Nikon did the same when they issued 7000 series, the advantage of fully articulated screen they had on 5000 series was just gone. 5000 series where out of question since they have no lens motor.
All NEX screens are blurred and affected by cloth and body friction and sweat moisture after just 1 year and you have to change them. I have a 3 year full warranty on mine and I asked Sony to change the screen twice, and they did it without any discussion or questions.
reginalddwight: I like that Sony plans to continue production of the RX100 Mark I and II despite the imminent release of the Mark III. Great for the consumer to have choices.
Based on information from the company's YouTube video, the price points will soon be $799, $649, $499 for the different iterations.
I am nearly ready to have Sony take my money!
Then go ahead and buy one, it's 465$ new in Taiwan, shipping is free.
obayedh: "we're a little worried that it might be another great camera that we just can't love"
We all know dp can't love Sony cameras! It's an open secret, isn't it!!?
they have an add on grip with double sided 3m tape, it's an accessory.
Neal Hood: I don't like the slight increase in weight and thickness but, I sure do like the new features. The lens tradeoff is a good one, as cropping in Raw provides just about all the typical telephoto effect desired. The pictures on my RX 100 gen 1 look excellent, and no doubt they are even better on the new model. I stick the camera in my pocket and go everywhere. Put it in my jersey pocket on the bike and it works great. I guess the only additional feature that would be nice is weather proofing, at least to some degree. Pictures come out considerably better than on my S110 Canon.
it's not silent, look through the comments how much noise it makes.
any source for European pre-order? Amazon.de, unlike amazon.com, doesn't list it - and, needless to say, the latter doesn't ship to Europe. No mention on it on Expansys either.
I want to get this before the holiday starts (01/Jul).
