On article Just Posted: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 review (546 comments in total)

Another excellent review by a Nikon D800 and D4 photographer....
"As of February 2013, this camera sets the bar for all compact digital cameras to meet. Finally, after thousands of words, only two more are needed: Highly recommended."

Benarm: very clever, great use of A77's superior frame rate

The secret is setting your flash to manual and set the power to about 1/16 power, now you can use your flash in a rapid succession - no need to fully recharge after each flash. Combine this with the fastest DLSR, you get awesome results like Maianer macro photos.

drbird: Certainly a nice camera....Just take it out in the cold (-26°C - 32°C) on day two both camera were still working perfect just both displays were unusable...the EVF went black/grey the rear LCD was black. This was the same with the 5DMK III but at least we could still use the OVF. This and the delay of the EVF for birds in flight or other action shots were seeing what you capture is important just makes it a no go for me. btw the displays came back to live when we got down from the mountains ...another drawback was that the camera was just eating batteries in the cold about 5-8 times more than equivalent cameras with OVF. Sure the camera is fine for many things but I pray that the OVF will stay with us for a long time to come.

Mark II failed miserable in Antartica http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/antarctica-2009-worked.shtml but I read Mark III has "enhanced" weather sealed it must be the reason yours survived. A99 is a SEMI professional camera and WAS NOT designed for extreme cold weather.

DRarchitect: Someone is sabotaging this camera, the sample photos are terrible. Out of focus, composition is wrong, shot at the wrong ISO... It was all made to look absolutely terrible... DP I hope you did not do this on purpose........

If it was Silver Award, I say sabotage but I am very satisfied with DP's review and GOLD award!

"When we reviewed the RX100, earlier this year, we were very impressed. What do you think of the RX100's inclusion in Time's list? Let us know in the comments. " very impressed but why no gold award? ;-)

It is just unbelievable there are so many Sony haters here without even trying or owning this camera.

I am sure if it is a Nikon or Canon, there will be less negative or nasty postings on this article.

I think Sony is a very innovative company. Just look at RX1 and Sony A99. I think it is great that we have many choices and it will push other companies to design a better camera.

These are the kind of quality samples DP should be taking. RAW + JPEG samples at http://www.mobile01.com/newsdetail.php?id=12497 in Chinese. If you still think these samples are bad due to the camera, you are just a hater and lost your credibility as a honest forum member.

deniz erdem: why do sony jpeg always have that blotchy look to them? i know the raw files are probably very impressive but why sony? why dont you have good jpegs?

Did you see the RX1 samples? These are also impressive samples. I think they really improve their jpeg engine.

BMWX5: Where are the real sample photos for Sony A99?

@bruder, those not A99 real samples. They used a camera with pre production 0.92 firmware. Plus so many of the photos were underexposed. I prefer to wait from professionals such as DP reviewers!

Martin Datzinger: Sad to see they used an SLT design, the brilliant OVF was one of the main incentives to buy the a900.

Sad to read that you are stuck to outdated technology. EVF is the future...

Wow, I can't wait to replace my A77! DP admin, video is not working!

In reply to:

LaFonte: very tempting, specs wise. but somehow i don't like any of the provided samples too much. Still no doubt this puts every other compact to shame, but still not enough reason to upgrade from xz-1, as it seems.

Check samples here http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1009&thread=42351761 you'll be amazed!
