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 ...

Spent months agonising over what camera to buy for my spouse as a present. In the end after reading many a review here on DP I took her in to a store to handle a few cameras. I wanted her to pick a full on DSR but she really liked the very small Sony DSC RX100 - apparently size does matter! It fits into a pocket and that sold it for her, I tried making her use a full size camera but she never took it out of the house so it didn't get used - so I didn't want to waste the cash on the wrong ...

Today bought this camera and tested it intensively. Impressions: - very compact - ideal size for pocket; - very fast autofocus - like last Olympus OM-D5, not less: you can push and same moment have a focused shot; - perfect design: I think that Sony now has designer of level Apple last years - design of this camera and RX1R is genius; - quality of finishing - above any expectations - I expected same for price level twice more; - quality of pictures: perfect. But I dream about time when this ...

I have been a Canon PowerShot fan for several years now, but I was really disappointed with the Canon PowerShot S100 — in fact, I didn't think it was as good as my S90. I like to have a good quality pocket camera that I can take anywhere, and so I started looking to see what else was out there and found the Sony DSC-RX100. About the time I really started thinking about buying it, Sony announced the new version and it sounded even better for my needs. I liked the idea of WiFi for easy picture ...

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 ...

Just a brief note of thanks to Sony for putting this camera out on the market. I have all sorts of cameras acquired for professional work as an investigator, two Leicas, a bag full of Nikons and various lenses. Now this is the camera that I actually use, because it combines small size and convenience with remarkable picture quality, especially with the filter adapter that allows lens hoods, close-up lenses, etc.. I think of this as a revolution in camera quality.  Its 20 megapixels are ...
