Jennyhappy2: Either way it's gonna sell.
As of today on Amazon, here are the top sellers:
LX100 - #113RX100 II - #104RX100 IV - #20RX100 III - #19RX100 - #18
Like it, then buy it. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
I just wish Mike would use a spell checker. Reading his posts hurts my brain :-)
guydr: All RX100's have good IQ, I'm not gone argue that and you pay for the version you want. My only gripe with Sony cams is the launching price in the EU. RX100m3 was 849€ when introduced, now the RX100m4 will be 1149€. I think Sony lost touch with reality here and at that price they are gone sell 0,000³ units in the EU. Don't BS over the VAT, that's the price we have to pay. The G7X is now around 500€ in comparisation.
@jennyhappy2. What evidence do you have to support your statement that the 'demand isn't there'? I for one moved from the RX100 to the G7X thanks to the touch screen and better zoom range; plus the fact I didn't need an evf on what really is a pocket camera. Complications with the lens? I get better images from the canon than I did from the Sony. Your statement is incorrect then ... Some people don't want or need an evf ... Especially at £'ssss more!
Jefftan: People who are interested in RX100 IV should seriously consider GM1, this is written by a happy new owner
way exceed my expectationsharp lens, excellent IQ, fast auto-focus, good image stabilization,fast operation
Mainly because of the great sharp lens, to my great surprise IQ even beat my NEX-5N with Sony 10-18mm F4 lens (already much better than the garbage 16-50mm kit)
why by this overpriced camera? just for being a little bit smaller?
And tolerate lower IQ and much more expensive? It is your money but I really can't understand
You clearly have a broken NEX!
spaghettii: Battery life: 280 shots
Really? Play around with the setting on that bright screen and take a few shots the battery is dead! At this price I expect the battery life at least 700 shots.
My first dslr is the Sony Translucent then comes NEX and my last Sony camera is the A6000 but never satisfied with any of them. I was impressed with the features and hypes but....but....but....the battery life is terrible and the lens selection is even worst (expensive). Sold them all on craigslist.
Purchase my first Nikon camera last week, the D3300 for $399 with 18-55mm and 55-200 kit lens. I was blown away with the IQ and the battery life last forever and happily invest 35mm 1.8 and 55mm 1.8 and some extra accessories.
Enjoy lugging that beast of a camera around ... My NEX6 fits very comfortably in my coat pocket :-)
Tom Holly: Overpriced junk. It resolves barely 25 megapixels of fine detail, and to get that you have to stop it down a bit, which we all know renders a lens useless.
Sorry, but to call it 'overpriced junk' just shows a persons arrogance!
Photoman: I wonder if these adapters will be any good. I thought you only put adapter lens on video cameras? I would prefer a FE 21mm with no attachments on it.
It's so cheap, just buy and try ... and if you don't like, eBay it to get your money back! You won't however be disappointed!
There seems to be a lot of people commenting on here, in some cases silly comments, embarrassing themselves IMO, ignorant to both camera technologies and the market for these types of cameras! Don't like, don't buy, don't understand, don't comment!
tom1234567: I don't no why camera makers keep producing cameras with these SMALL CRAPPY SENSORS
It's time the public were educated to what they are buying Instead of being ripped off by ALL camera manufactures
Tom; way to show your ignorance of both camera technologies and the market. You should also perhaps 'educate' yourself on spelling (no = know!) alongside the above two points!
I use the above setup and the results are stunning. It can't be true I'm sure, but with all the pictures I've shot, it looks like use of the adapter IMPROVES sharpness! For what I paid £99 (silver years ago), it's the best lens I've ever purchased!
Drama: No viewfinder = defect camera
Want a viewfinder; buy a DSLR and stop posting silly comments on threads about cameras aimed at different markets!
Vilas7: Lot of features on RX100 III as well as Powershot G7 x has been discussed but I want to know if there is any digital zoom on those cameras and how are the results of those digital zooms as far as movie and photos are concerned indoors for school and church programs. I may be shooting from a distance of 30 to 50 feet and the optic zoom may not be sufficient. Does any one know the quality of digital zoom on each camera?
Thanks for coming back. After testing myself I agree, but I still have the Canon pegged as my next purchase!
Edward Vancouver: Merry Christmas to everybody, even to those idiots who are trying to be politically correct by wishing Happy Holidays.. Truly appalling..
Jesus who? Any proof .... Any photos of this elusive person (shrouds don't count!). :-)
djohnfot: dpreview has always been one of the class acts in its field, with the best reviews and most up-to-date news and general interest articles. Here's to an even better 2015!
My one wish is that the trolls would at least read the article before they post their comments. Otherwise they are wasting their time and ours.
Most up to date???
I love reading DPR but I'm sorry, they're without doubt the slowest to review most cameras (still waiting to decide whether I should upgrade to the Sony A5100!)
I'm not trolling, just pointing out the glaringly obvious error in your statement .... But happy Christmas :-)
AbrasiveReducer: Happy holidays, DPR! In an area with so much nonsense--customers feeling sorry for their favorite corporation, videos showing how to open the box, rumors and conspiracy theories--you have kept things measured and sane. Like most of the cameras reviewed, I think DPR deserves a gold award and some combat pay as well.
My wish for next year, besides a Canon body with a low noise sensor, is for photography to become more difficult. Why? Because it will reduce the number of experts and professionals, and those who remain will really know their stuff.
Best wishes, DPR! And hopes for an interesting 2015.
Those unboxings ... Lets hope one day everyone who does an unboxing opens the box to find no camera ... Smug little bar stewards lol!
My wish for 2015 (other than all those who bemoan the fact a new pocket camera with APSC sensor doesn't have an EVF, hotshoe, handgrip or interchangeable lens), is to hope all those who have just purchased a new mobile with a 28MP camera, all disappear back to their phone blogs, leaving us 'camera' people free to engage in lively self obsessed no nonsense debate). :-)
I've criticised DP a lot this year for its failures (as have many) but I appreciate the site and I'm glad it exists. In all honesty, its success has come from the readership and great conversations - so I hope DP can continue to bring us articles (even if unfinished and biased lol!) so that we the readers may continue debating with/against each other :-)
Happy Christmas and a BIG thank you to all at DPR .... and to us readers .... and lets hope 2015 brings us lovely new tech and less people moaning 'it hasn't got an EVF or hotshoe' (its a f*****g hand held camera ... What did you expect!)
Neil(And P.S. ... Yes the RX100 is palm sized and has an EVF as most will want to say .... But it doesn't have a hotshoe now .... Does it ;-)
... And P.P.S. ... Why do DPR show that a comment has been edited ? .... Are thy trying to make us look stupid lol.
Siff: lol, really? still a preview?
Still no conclusion a year later ... DP really are **** these days/years!
utomo99: If money is not a problem for you. maybe this cameras is good.But if money need to consider, you can consider cheaper cameras. and also no Zoom is not good for many people.
Maybe a Canon S110!
@ the-bunker : I'm considering either the Canon or Sony MII to replace my Mark I Sony. I tried the Canon today and it seemed noticeably slower on shot to shot speeds (using the same class 10 card). Can I ask your feelings on this ... I love the look of the canon (spec wise) over the MII sony but the ability to focus quickly and take repeated shots is important to me. Can I ask your thoughts on this?
keeponkeepingon: Is canon making a knock off of the RX100 really "one of the most exciting announcements from Photokina"?
Either it's a boring conference or I'm missing something. Can you explain why this is exciting?
I find an all-new competitor to the king of 1" compacts (and a competitor with much better specs), quite exciting!!!!
TFD: Nice but I think Sony trumps them in two areas, Video and Panoramas. From my experience no one is as good at Panoramas as Sony.
Anyone talking about a £600+ camera and 'Selfies' in the same paragraph looses any respect they might have had with me!
