The Sony RX100 has been in my possession for one year to date, and since my initial review , I hardly mentioned it, so I think it is time now to give it some front page headlines. The RX100 has a serious advantage over any other camera I have ever owned before (not including my phone), it goes with me everywhere, even when I don't want to take a camera, just like you take your wallet and keys when you're going out, even if it doesn't get any use. For some reason, our family outdoor outings ...

Purchased mine sooner after it's release in 2012. For year's I looked for the pocketable camera that took great pictures. Canon Elphs were the best in the mid-2000s, then Panasonic started upping the game later in the 2000s, but the RX100 was the first one that did it right. It was expensive at first, but was been worth every cent. In the last two years, I have purchased and moved on Canon 6D, several m43 cameras, and several Fuji cameras. Not to say the RX100 was "better" than all these, but ...

I had been looking for a pocketable high quality camera for some time, I'd bought and sold a Canon G1x which I found so disappointing, problems with exposure and in particularlits inability to autofocus. It's also not easy to fit into a pocket as easily as the Sony does. I've been using the RX100 for a couple of years and the results are outstanding. Printing shots up to mA3 is no problem, even at that size there's little fall off of image quality. For more serious shooting I use an EOS ...

Nice picture quality but annoying things make me consider returning the camera. Here is the string representing the address of the video folder: SD Storage Device (H) > Private > AVCHD > BDMV > STREAM I found my video after digging through all folders and subfolders. Why could not they make it easier? Also, I still could not figure out how to view (download) some pictures I made on internal memory.

To be quite honest, I don't know what I could tell you about this camera that you doesn't really know. What do I like about it? Superb high ISO images. Small enough to fit in my pants pockets. Nice colors/WB and tonality. Very effective in-camera HDR, and very cool Panorama function. What I don't like? Hum... Expensive. Slippery. Battery drains quickly. An electronic viewfinder would be more than welcome! Beside those minor complaints, I love this camera. With the RX100 in my pocket and my ...

I've had this camera for about 4 months. It takes great pictures. The panoramic modes is easy to use and produces really nice images. At the wide end the aperture is amazing. Even low light shots can be detailed if you are careful. That's the good part. Its been in for repairs twice. The first time the lens wouldn't retract and I would get an error on startup. Recently the camera just stopped turning on. Battery was charged, sd card was good but nothing. No light when I plugged in the ...

Because of the big sensor and the Carl Zeiss lens, the images get extreme high level of details and sharpness. Also at low light conditions, the RX 100 do the job correctly. The smart functions of night shot, panaorama and HDR, similar as the NEX models, makes it really great to use. SONY has really lifted their cameras and their software above the competiors. The full HD video makes the camera also to be my best video camera ever. The zoom range of 3,6x is a limitation.  BUT : The internal ...

I've been using this camera along with my A65 and A55 for 9 months now and all I can say is wow! Excellent in every way for a compact pocketable and a great companion for users of larger ICL cameras. The only downfall is the 100mm max makes it very limited for sports and wildlife.

I've had it for a week now, and it's lived up to my expectations, mostly. It replaced a Canon S110 which I had on loan for a couple of weeks, while waiting for the RX100. A few thoughts on the relative merits of these two cameras: (1) the RX100 has better IQ (high ISO, clearly, but also the "texture" which I guess is attributable to the larger sensor) (2) the S110's build ...
