rx100m6 shootout

Handheld, Jpegs XF minimum compression, OOC no PP, AF-S, spot focus and metering.

The excitement is all about new reach with the 1" sensor, so:

I show Optical and In-Camera 'Extra Zooms' (Jpegs Only).

SZ Smart Zoom: In-Camera Sensor Crop, Optical, no upscale, reduced pixel count

CIZ Clear Image Zoom, In-Camera Sensor Crop and in-camera upscale back to 20mp.


!st Round, simply turn sideways, shoot bookcase 8 feet away, Moderate amount of daylight from window behind me, bounced up some via tilted horizontal blind.

1. Without a doubt, not happy with m6 higher ISO than m3 for anything close, so existing m3 will handle 24 to 100mm (70mm limit cropped a bit)(as planned). m6 by itself for 24-100 would be disappointing comparatively.

2. so, m6 is all about 20mp 100mm to 200mm, and 10mp SZ Smart Zoom 200-280mm

3. CIZ gets better with each processor, so I took 20mp 400mm CIZ and 10mp 560mm CIZ

4. for me, it comes down to IF the results beyond 100mm to 200 and SZ 280mm can compare/beat my existing Oly Stylus 1 Jacket Pocket size zoom with brighter lens but smaller sensor.
