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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
