Ahh the tried and true RX100 IV...an amazing camera!
alenis: Comparing the studio test scene, I would say that the Canon G7 x performs better, especially at the corners..
Impressive to say the least!
Aroart: I'm curious to see this camera vs the 5100 with kit lens... or the Pani lx100...
Just go to the comparison feature. RX100 IV superior in optics and performance, LX100 for ergonomics.
5100 only if you wanna change lenses.
Take a look at the review here..Optics and Performance far surpass the G7X....nice camera, but not in the same league.
Stollen1234: not bad..it gets only 85%..too expensiv for this class of Cameras...for almost 1000 $
Only 85%????? Can you please provide an alternative that you think is actually better?
The Canon G7X compared to the RX100 II. LOL
Where is the EVF on the G7X?
afm: The samples appear very grainy even at low ISO and not particularly sharp. To my eye, the results from the III are superior.
So funny, there are those that think a touchscreen is more important than a built in EVF. Well, I say we leave it up to Sony as they seem to know what they are doing far better than the competition, as there has yet to be a true competitor to the RX100 series.
Yes, there seems there are those who have tried, but they are too busy focusing on yesterday's technology so they are always a generation behind.
Sony, congrats on the RX100 IV ~ Best Pocket Compact Camera!
McEnroe: Hi. This is my first post, so please be gentle. :)
There are 2 reasons why I'd buy the RX100 IV even though I do agree that it's overpriced:
1. I love slowmo videos, and don't think there is another pocketable camera on the market with a 1-inch sensor capable of 1080p/120fps video. The Panasonic TZ70 is less than half the price of the Sony, but it can only do 120fps at 720p/120fps, and its sensor is 1/2.3" (amazing 24–720mm zoom though!)
2. I 'm no photo expert, but it should surpass the photo quality of my Canon S95. :)
I've also been looking at the GoPro Hero 4 Black, which can do 1080p/120fps & 720p/240fps. The combination of a fixed fisheye lens, no LCD & a 1/2.3" sensor are a deal-breaker. Sure, you can get the LCD addon & the ribcage for it to attach any C/CS/M12 lens. But this requires doing delicate GoPro surgery, which would substantially increase the camera size & void your GoPro warranty. The overall cost would be equivalent to, or even be above, the Sony's.
Just so you know, the original RX100 would surpass the photo quality of your Canon S95. LOL
The RX100 IV garners our top award for its pure ambition. Its class-defining image and video quality raise the bar even further, widening the gap between it and any potential competition. As such, the RX100 IV is, today, peerless.
HelgaS: Any info on whether the rx iv is compatible with the nauticam rx iii housing?
Richard - look forward to your review on the RX100 IV..any timeframe we can expect to see it?
Oops! Looks like Canon GOOFED AGAIN!
Only a Recommended rating instead of the expected Highly Recommended:
"The Canon PowerShot G3 X is almost the perfect super-zoom camera for more experienced photographers, but the decision not to include a built-in viewfinder turns the G3 X into a near-miss..."
Chris62: No reason to buy for reasonable customers.Expensive camera with fixed lens means in case any camera damage the expensive fixed lens aso goes to the trash.If price is higher the camera lens must be detachable.
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?????
Jennyhappy2: Looks to be a hit...selling at #1 on Amazon.com
Competition from Canon the Sony RX100 line??? LMAO!
Mike FL - Good point! So sad some individuals cannot stay on topic.
Too slow and too expensive. Canon makes you make an extra $249 for an external EVT... no thanks.
When does the G3X II come out?
Looks to be a hit...selling at #1 on Amazon.com
$1,000 camera that size with no built in EVF nor 4K and F5.6 Starting at only 164mm???? OMG!
JJ Rodin: Saw mention and pics of this several months ago, and finally we see it a bit better. Looks like a very good competitor for RX100III/IV maybe even RX10II.
Just sad it has a Sony sensor in a Canon cam :(
Not a RX100 III/IV competitor, but a $1,240 near competitor of the RX10 having to buy the EVF separately.
