Naveed Akhtar: finally one good camera .. from canon as well!!
I totally agree with you!! I think that the 180 tiltable lcd is much more useful than the ovf.I am not sure if I will trade my RX100, which is much smaller...
Dear DPReview, could you tell me if it shoots at 16:9 aspect ratio? If it does, what would the resolution be?
Very nice camera indeed, although RX100 seems to be a bit sharper and less noise, even with the smaller sensor. The article does not mention, but the GM1 probably has a lens cap. I prefer the RX100 as a real pockatable camera.
Very nice camera! Looks very promissing, too bad it misses all the gorgeous retro looking...
100% crop images are too noisy, too close to the new gen of smartphones cameras...
I wish Sony RX100 have the colors of this Canon! Would be great to combine the sharpness and low light ability of the RX100 with the color on the Canon S series!
Excelent work DPReview!I am very happy to see the RX-100 II slightly better than the m4/3s up to ISO 400! The best pocketable camera ever!
No-RAW Sony cameras have much better jpegs colours than RX-100 IMO. I am amazed that I need to "fix" the images on a $650 camera...Hope for a firmware update soon, or for the next gen of Canon and Olympus cameras with a sensor equivalent to the RX100.
Boky: something's seriously wrong with the colour.... does't look right, especially warm spectrum.
I own a RX100 and I have to tell you, the colors look the same... and that is a bad thing.The IQ on the camera is awsome, but it is biggest problem are the colours... specially skin tones... If you are looking to buy this camera for its jpegs you are in for a bad surprise.
Very nice! This is probably the best 1/1.7"camera available.
Too bad that everytime, the same gang enters the comment section to complaint about sensor size, the specs and so on... there are a lot of cameras to diferent tastes, for me this is perfect, if it is not for you, go nag in somewhere else...
Too bad they didnt release a firmware update... I love my RX100, but it has a much less pleasant skin tones on jpeg than my old Canon S100 and my Olympus E-PM2. It is great for landscape, not so much for people pictures.A 180º tilting lcd would have been so great for self pics, too bad!I wonder if the zoom while video remains so much slow...Except for this minor glitches, it is still the best pocket camera available, but for the amateur photographer, doesnt Worth the upgrade for the RX100 II IMO.
No hot shoe? Lol, just kidding... nice review, beautiful Canon colors, sprecially the skin tones. What place was the fotos taken?
Cool!! Although I would prefer a 5x zoom for a slimmer body... the future is here! Bye bye small sensor compact câmeras, this market is ending.
rb59020: No thanks, Samsung blew it! Should have been at least APSC, full frame would have been better! The 10X zoom is ok, but should have been a constant f1.4. I hate it when the aperture changes when I zoom! And what's with the crappy 4fps? The D4 does 10fps! What was Samsung thinking?
No hot shoe? OMG!!!!!! I think I'll faint!!
joe1512: Looks pretty nice. Keep in mind that this is the ONLY phone with a real optical zoom camera that I am aware of.
It should be compared to existing travel zooms. Saying stuff like "it should have 10x zoom with 1.4 aperature" is just retarded, as is "OMG I want full frame!!".
With a standard sized sensor fortravel zooms, its IQ should be comparable to cameras such as the SX260 and the like. Not amazing but better than the average cell phone due to autofocus and slightly bigger sensor (vs the 1/3.2ish used in many cell phone cameras), plus better lens.
They aren't gonna make a phone with a bigger sensor for quite a while. They can barely cram a 1 inch sensor into a compact such as teh RX100. They certainly can't make it smaller AND shove phone guts into that smaller space.
This should fill a niche quite nicely and let people get rid of these ridiculous zoom-lens attachments you are supposed to carry around with your phone.
Very appropriate posting, congrats my friend!
I would like to see some dpreview users holding a Nikon D4 with phone capability on the ear lol.
Wow I really liked it! Nice colors, cris and low noise, much better than some samples from others web sites, maybe the photographer is better lol...
I already have the RX-100, I think that for me it is not worth to have the MX-1 as a second camera or to replace mine...
I believe that a larger sensor would fit as the camera is chunkier than the RX-100, although I dont think that they could keep such a fast lens...
Nevertheless this camera offers a lot for the price, although a $350 price would really help Pentax to speed it sales against LX7, G15 and XZ-2!
Hope the new processor and 1080/60p vídeo comes in the sucessor of S110!
sailorboy414: I have P300 and I am super happy with it. I didn't think P310 was an upgrade so I was waiting and waiting for this camera... but the lens kind of disappoints. Here is here dilemma.. this or the new Oly XZ-10. Oly has a smaller sensor, but a much better lens, focus/function ring and a touch screen. Same price. Which to get? Any opinions?
I too have the same dilemma... Tottally agree with user technic, the S100 takes too long to process, lets see what the P330 would do!
Arn: I can't see much point in this. Almost exactly the same camera as the Canon S110 which was introduced in 9/2012... Just in Nikon brand. S110 already has similarly specced lens, similar size and RAW capture.
Canon S100/S110 has some major focus issues, I will buy this Nikon and replace my Canon S100 as my pocket camera... or maybe the Olympus XZ-10, after reading some reviews...
