  • Plenty of great answers here. I've been shooting SLRs since 1987. Last 3 have been Pentaxes, current one is the K5. I exclusively shoot RAW. I'm quite impressed with the handling and operation of...

  • Absolutely love my Think Tank Retrospective 7. I repurposed it from carrying my DSLR kit to carrying my RX10, RX100, HVL-F43M & F20M flashes, reflectors, filters MS Surface Pro 2 computer and all...

  • I owned the V1 first, bought the RX100 later. Once I did, I never used the V1 again and finally sold it once I got the RX10. Why: Turns out the V1 + lenses wasn't much smaller than an SLR; RX100...
  • Your findings seem to echo mine. At base ISO, the RX10's performance is so similar to a APS-C DSLR with top-notch lenses that there's no practical optical compromises with the RX10, (remember, this...

  • It sits quite well. Others have had good experience with other manufacturers' flashes such as Metz and so on so you may well want to look into those if you're looking for a more affordable...
  • 1. The rear wheel/dial rocks, I think it's as you've described. 2. Cannot remember and not at home to test it out. 3. Mine is mostly in pants pocket. So far two issues: firstly the anti-reflective...

  • I don't see why you cannot use Lithium batteries in the flash, but haven't tried myself. Since discovering low self-discharge batteries which can be left off of the charger for up to one full year...

  • I bought the RX10 primarily for outdoor activities such as hiking and think it's nearly perfect for this. Good focal length range without swapping lenses, weather-sealing, good external controls,...

  • Wow, I find this comment odd. I got my RX10 and immediately started using it and found it to be just like shooting with my RX100, only better: now there's a dedicated aperture ring now there's a...
