VolandSpb: But he really did not say, that to prevent more reflections, you must to be a black man too... =)
truly in bad taste you should be banned for being a douche
#6 you're looking through the clear water
rx100m3 is taking a small step backward imoi'll keep the m2 and see what happens in a year or two
aerorail: shoot some hard scenes like snow capped mountains on a clear blue sky day with dark foreground rock/trees
yes top of any mountain like the jungfrau all snow and blue skythats where this camera's predecessors failed in bright and high contrast scenes no matter what setting/scenes pre-programmed or manually were used. and to review the shots on the view screen in daylight next to impossiblebut otherwise i like it for travelneeded a lot of pp on a variety of other scenesmaybe i had a bad camera but how would you know?

Artpt: What about the lens cap? Over 2300 comments and not one about the lens cap.
don't forget to start about 23 threads on what is the best case
SigmaDelta10: A huge amount of RX100 users are still waiting for the firmware update with the option to disable the movie button.Sony isn't interested in existing users. Always good to know before you buy a product.
that couple seconds of waiting could be life changing
seems to be an unusual amount of testing on this compact compared to others for some reason
all manufacturers are selling less and less cameras each yearhow do they fix that?
they raise prices to compensate for less sales to recover cost and still try to make a profit
the company says has never been done before: bonding two aspherical elements together
binocular optics have been like that for years
Sdaniella: here is the positive:http://airandspace.si.edu/webimages/previews/6562p.jpg
art docents and art curators will double talk and interpret what you think you're looking at and make any ugly piece of crap most wouldn't pay 2 cents for worth a million bucks
i gave up on moto after 10 years and went w/samsung. moto won't innovate. apple isn't much better. my note3 beats the heck out of all of what's out there.oh yea...these are phones/computers not cameras
Frank_BR: Why are the camera manufacturers complaining now? In 2009, 2010 and 2011, the world sank into recession, but the sales of cameras were peaking. Then the world was becoming poorer but camera manufacturers were making money like never before. Was that fair?
Now that the economies of the USA, Europe and Japan are beginning to recover, the sales of cameras are running out of gas. That old book would describe the situation, saying that fat years are coming to the world, and lean years to the camera manufacturers. Isn't that fair?
economy of the USA is NOT recovering with 1/3 population out of work and gov't propping up the stock market with billions every month
keep in mind go pro is used almost exclusively for television production for tight spaces or usual angles ie inside and outside moving vehicles as well sports of all kinds plus outer space. a lot of tv you're viewing is done with go pro and you don't even know it and you can buy it at walmart lol
no need to voteall you have to do is look at the 'own it' number and thats your winnerolympus? really?
by time this poll is over the products here will be discontinued
these polls are useless of course you're going to vote for the one you own. most won't have experience with any other camera to make 'best' judgement.look how the polls reflect what the majority own
If you're looking for the best image quality you can produce from a shirt pocket camera that has a great deal of flexibility, then buy the RX-100. Or the RX-100II if you think the tilt LCD, WiFi, or EVF option will be useful. I've been carrying this camera around the world with me for over two years now. It's never disappointed me for compact-type camera usage. Never. That's saying a lot.
another 'rush to market, keep up with the joneses piece of junk'
carrigman: "For anyone simply looking for the best image quality from a compact, the RX100 II is the answer." You can stop reading after that. IQ is what it's all about and the RX100 (versions 1 and 11) delivers that in spades. I have the original RX100 and I am constantly amazed at the quality it delivers.
why not gm1 instead of rx100 m2? size mostly....and when i had lx3/lx5. panny would upgrade the model and the accessories don't fit from the previous model. never again...
vFunct: Mirrorless cameras are junk. They're like cell-phone cameras, with their visual preview lag, but they're not as useful as cell phones because they aren't pocketable.
There are only two useful camera classes: dSLRs and cell phones. Everything else is a useless compromise that isn't as good as either.
There are absolutely NO professionals that use mirror less cameras at a press event. Every press photographer uses either a Nikon or Canon, while the writers use iPhones.
Mirrorless cameras aren't as good as an dSLR or a cell phone, and therefore nobody uses them.
They are junk toys.
can you say IGNORANTmr d funct?
