I've had this camera for about a year and a half now and love it. I used it a lot until I switched from Canon DSLRs to Sony Mirrorless. I now take my A6000 almost anywhere but there still are times when it's too big (like weddings). It's nice to know that I am barely giving up any image quality when I take this with me instead. This is barely smaller than a micro four-thirds sensor which professionals use for weddings and the lens is Zeiss. I know the next versions of this camera are out now ...

I bought this camera recently to replace my 550D + 50m f1.4 lens. The quality of the picture relatively the same but RX100II has a better low light performance and better at taking burst photo with 10 fps. Crisp and bright images are important to me, plus I'm tired travelling with my kids while carrying pretty big SLR such as Canon EOS 550D + kit IS2 + 50mm f1.4 + 75-300 USM III. You can imagine me carrying a bag with those accessories plus diapers and children's stuff. I'm a fan of SONY and ...

The true breakthrough of the Rx100 was the perfect marriage of the lens and sensor combo, punching way above it's weight (and size). The pair is truly stellar (pun intended ;)) and commends in depth understanding of how the camera works in order to reach it's full potential. However, what really sells it is the IQ ooc in semi-auto and even auto modes. I would be so bold to say that a premium kit lens like the 4/16-70 would be required on a NEX/alpha back in order to reach (some of) the ...

After using the Sony RX100 II for 4 months, I am now somewhat dissatisfied with both the product and the warranty coverage. Under normal use, by turning the top setting knob with your thumb, the top frame of the camera will be pushed forward.  I can't imagine using this camera in the long run and how this will affect the useful life of the camera. Sony warranty refused to cover this design flaw.  The person on the phone sounded like he heard this before and is not interested in discussing the ...

I have been needing a camera for hiking that was utilitarian in nature and had exceptional image quality for landscapes. I tried out a canon s100 some time ago and it was an absolute dismal disapointment as it just did not have the speed features ISO and image quality I was looking for. I was interested in the first generation of this camera and went as far as thinning out some camera gear to buy it by selling an x pro body as I had 2 and only "needed" one. What I was not expecting was that ...

Lifelong Canon user.  Bought and loved the Canon S95.  "Upgraded" to the S100, returned it after a week, deeply disappointed. Then I came across the RX-100, which I bought using my returned store credit plus a top-up, and never looked back.  It was a gamechanging product in terms of image quality in a comparable size to the S95. I upgraded to the Mark II as soon as it came out and bought myself a hotshoe Mic to go with it -- the sound quality in an arena concert setting is astounding. The ...

Initially, I was going to wait until this camera hit the low 600 price point, but then my friend damaged my Canon S90 by dropping it down a flight of stairs, so I took the opportunity to buy a new camera. My "go-to" choices were the Canon S120 and the Sony RX100II. After playing with them both side by side at a camera shop, I decided that the Sony was superior, despite the significantly higher price. Pro s: (1) Image Quality - Until sony or canon make an APS-C version of their p&s's that's ...
