RX100 as a street cam

The RX100 really performs well as a street-cam.

Shot some images during 'Kingsday' in Amsterdam .

Shot in aperture priority, with auto iso. While light was okay I used f/2.8, later in fading light f/1.8. Of course, when zooming in, the aperture gets bigger automatically. Used a polarizer for most of them.

Sometimes I had a hard time getting the focus point right, especially if it was point-and-shoot in amongst the crowd. I also noticed some shots not being sharp, even at 1/125th or even at 1/250th of a second. Looked like camera shake, understandable, but still, I felt I had more unsharp shots with this kind of shake then otherwise with other cams (steady shot was on).

If you're interested, here is the gallery : http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3225500706/albums/kingsday2014

A couple of shots from that gallery:

Yeah! Cool! A fire breather!

Yuck! Disgusting! A fire breather!
