i should add

the in camera charging is probably going to become the biggest bug-a-boo, or complaint about the rx-100. the external battery charger is faster at charging the battery vs the usb cable.

in another thread i scoffed at a poster moaning about the x-10.s battery life. while the rx-100 battery lasts about 330 shots. plugging the camera into a usb cable, then charging, disconnecting swap out the battery for a spare, then repeating the same process, seems rather laborious. it will get old and so will the camera.

while i do like the idea of in camera charging. i would rather have it in addition to a dedicated charger. the reason why, i know a lot of camera users that connect the camera to download their pics. so while downloading it also charges. in the case of the rx-100 you need to purchase the external charger.

another thing, by going to a larger sensor it should give way better results than smaller sensor cameras, but i remember the first sony dslrs, they carried the same sensors as nikon yet nikon gave better results.

An image of you and of me and we're laughing and loving it all.
