This is why I'm not a photographer, the second last photo, the one of the lady with the blue dress. I would not see anything wrong with the untouched photo. The touched up photo is 'warmer' but not necessarily better than the original photo.But then I don't have an artistic bone in my body and post processing doesn't grab me.I think I'm a recorder rather than an artist. For example, some of the railway interest photos are of buildings no longer there.
FrankS009: Another DSLR? Too big and heavy for me.
do you carry an anchor on a canoe trip?
symbolic with the canoe, you can use the camera as a boat anchor
Regarding the zoom issue, I have the RX100M4 and after taking a photo I'd zoom to recompose the next shot and find that I'm zooming in the last photo I took.This was annoying enough that I disabled the preview function.This fixed the problem.
Michael Foran: Wasn't this exactly the plan they publicly set forth a couple years ago? I don't have a link to the actual article but I recall them making a statement that the low and mid range markets were saturated and they were going to focus on higher end models. So this is exactly what they predicted would happen, they shifted their strategy accordingly, and had a big increase in profit because of it. And yet this headline seems to imply they failed somehow.
That's what happens if you don't use journalists to write articles
Bjrn SWE: The eye has a spherical image sensor and it works fairly well for me. No zoom though. Yet.
how many cameras have crappy cheap optics and compensate with software correction?
Horshack: An after-life camera would be cool as well.
just say "enhance!" and watch it blow up to A3 size
Horshack: I don't want to be one of the negative-nelly fanboys that Roger hints about in his article but the decentering problems Sony has with this and other expensive lenses (24-70mm f/4 FE, 16-35mm f/4 FE, 16-70mm APS-C FE, and to a lesser degree the 70-200 f/4 FE) makes it hard to embrace the NEX lens system in its current form. The problem isn't entirely unique to Sony; over the past few years I've tried three different copies of the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 II and have yet to find one even reasonably well-centered. However on balance I've had pretty good experience with Canon lenses overall. IMO Sony needs to step it up a gear and work out their QC issues.
I'm intereseted in your comments about the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L mkII, I have the mk I and it is a beast and considering the mk II or the f/4
Daryl Cheshire: I don't think a camera should be marked down because it has a fixed rear screen, fixed screen cameras are more structurally robust.
I was relly commenting about all cameras of this size.
Like saying "what's the best car?" they all have four wheels and an engine and space to carry a payload.
It's up to the user how he uses these options.

do you get all the ads?
How would it compare to an all in one?They are thicker yes. Generally they are underwhelming in CPU/GPU
mosc: I can't even remember the last time I printed a picture...
Years ago I printed quality photos but I could only print between 10-20 A4 photos and I'd run out of wall space and ink and the photos eventually faded to white sheets.So now I just print to machines in shopping centres.
Like Kolchak of the Night Stalker TV series where he takes a hurried picture with a 110 camera and later in the dark room is looking at perfect poster prints.(who remembers 110 cameras?)
lenseye: Oh I'm going to buy this one as soon as it's on the shelf ... I'm sure my photos will be so much better ... maybe I'll even win a competition or two ...

MrTaikitso: Sony are superb at miniaturisation, but need to work on their ergonomics, the one reason I would not choose an RX-100 series and sadly got rid of my NEX. (A-6000 better, but not perfect.) On the RX-100 series, the controls are too small, there is no top right multi-use dial and the case is too slippery. Sony could learn from the Panasonic LX-100, which would be perfect it it had an articulating display.
The quest for the perfect compact continues!
yes I was fleeced, I paid the Australia Tax, a different store had it for $150.
Regarding focussing screens, I have the matt screen for the 5D mk II for use with the 50mm f/1.2L - works well
