57even: Actually looks like a nice bit of industrial design, particularly the switches and buttons.
I didn't realise the camera wasn't weather sealed. A little surprised at that for a landscape/outdoor camera.
I looked at his guy's history (bluevellet ) and he appears to be just another sock puppet of old m4/3 troll called Everdog , Just_Having_Fun.
This by the way isn't his only account.
Your rambling is totally irrelevant. Sony officially claims the camera is dust and moisture resistant. Weather it's good or bad WR is totally irrelevant. There is some WR on the camera, unlike what you said
It's weather sealed
misha marinsky4: Popular Photography used to do this. For example, March 1981, pages 108, 120, and 121.
Also, keep in mind that a digital camera in reality is a computer with a lens. If it breaks after two years, it's not worth fixing. 99% of the chips will be obsolete.
A camera isn't a computer. Forget two years, even a five sensor in K-5 (2010) is still not that much worse from 2015 sensors.
Even worse, Moore's law is dying even when it comes to computers. The computers aren't getting that fast as they used to a few years back. Look at the top 500 supercomputers. This list isn't changing as rapidly as it used to change. In fact, except one, all top 10 supercomputers right now are older than 2014 (bunch from 2013, one 2012 and one 2011)
It is weather sealed
firstname.lastname@example.org: The Nikon mirror up is ideal for me. Raise the mirror. Take the shot at the right moment.
OVF on a DSLR doesn't work when the mirror is up.
Where are the studio shots?
win39: What is it with the sound? I can barely hear it with the volume turned all the way up.
It's loud and clear even though my volume is less than half (1/4) . I use headphones though.
Don Sata: There is no way the cover photo (sun through forest sky) could have been achieved in a single shot with another sensor than a Sony, the wide DR allows to preserve highlights and recover decent shadows.
Toshiba and Sony shares facilities, so this so called "Toshiba" sensor is just same 24 MP sensor made in Toshiba factory.
Why no studio still shots for video?
ogl: It seems to me only sensor business helps SONY to live.
"I've heard camera business is not profitable."
You did not "hear" it. You made it up. The camera business has been profitable for a while now
Scottelly: "Sony defined a category . . ." - really? What was the Canon G series, which existed long before these Sony RX100 cameras then?
I'm not saying the RX100 is not a good step up, but it's not a category-defining camera!
No, they did maje RX100 competitors with the same 1" sensor . G7X
G series had 4 times smaller sensor but yet they were not pocketable. No even close. The closet thing was S series but the sensor was 4 times smaller still
Rx100 started the whole large sensor pocketable zoom camera trend.
RX100 was Time Magazine's invention of the year for 2012
so yes a new category was defined by Rx100

Please remove that false claim the image is copyrighted. It's not
John's Hopkins Applied research center isn't academic institute. It's Department of Defense contractor.
" Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) is primarily a defense contractor. It serves as a technical resource for the Department of Defense, NASA, and other government agencies. The Lab is an engineering research and development organization rather than an academic division of Johns Hopkins University."
AndroC: It's worth giving credit to Johns Hopkins University for this wonderful mission. According to NASA:
"The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, designed, built, and operates the New Horizons spacecraft and manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate"
The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laborarory is where the mission is run from, not NASA.
A useful website:
In any case, mission to pluto and all data and images are in public domain as this is NASA/ US Govt project.
Even the website you link says "Nasa's mission to Pluto" The money comes from Nasa, so it's US govt project, regardless how many other people and agencies worked on it.
No, this is a picture by NASA, which is a US government agency. No books, articles, pictures produced by the US government are copyrighted. They are in public domain.
DPR still has false "copyright NASA" in the article, even though they are told anything produced by the US government (articles, bookss, images) are in public domain and can't be copyrighted.

Frankinidaho: The Sony a7 II sure looks good.
A7II is a real useful camera the pentax pixelshift requires a tripod and can only shoot still subjects. Stop comparing apples and oranges, fanboys.
