RX100 Fantastic images

While I contemplate getting one
A bunch of R1 images.

I noticed that the trend seems to be to compose poorly, usually center the subject, almost always shoot landscape orientation, and most importantly, shoot under the worst lighting conditions.... so here's my contribution. Instead of flowers, I thought I'd spice things up a bit and include weeds and veggies.

Very nice shots Martin! I really doubt the RX100 will get even close to the R1 ;)!
Cheers

Re: RX100 Fantastic images - more

Hey Ben you still kicking around here?

Thanks for the compliment but between you and me, this post is a bit of a parody, those were just really quick snaps without any pre-planning or post work at all. I don't do flowers. Never ever ('cept this one time ;))

I have had two R1s for some time now, love this cam to death but they're both starting to fizzle on me (eg. one has a problem keeping settings - internal battery is dying; the other one has developed a bit of a sticky shutter button). The RX100 seems to produce very very good images and I'd love something compact like this as my main cam for street shooting... agreed, IQ-wise it's not going to be R1 level but that always was a secondary concern to me... as long as it's good enough, I'm happy

Cheers!
Martin

I think you need to quit smoking what you shoot.

Re: Beautiful work, as usual, Martin

That's an awful lot of effort to put into a troll post.

That said, I still like the shot with the queen annes lace and the bug, dead center or not.

Yes, yes, I've been training with the masters. The Facebook self-portrait masters. Next step is how to pose duckface

btw: all my post processing is done!

Thanks Marti, cheers!

Re: Beautiful work, as usual, Martin

Now now, trolls have the right to express themselves too

Yeah I realize that shot in question is a bit off center, should have cropped it to fit.

Cheers!

Lovely dog collar. Clearly, you have mastered the art of shooting dog collars.

Re: RX100 Fantastic images

I'll take #3 if you will crop it a little so it is off center.

Re: RX100 Fantastic images

Wot!... no one likes the plastic tube?

Gary, how have ya been? I trust all is well with you!

Here's a cropped & off-centered #3. Your wish is my command. Should print nicely.

Cheers Gary!

Wow, Martin!

I love how you seem to understand lighting, too, and pick the best time of day to shoot your weeds! Harsh lighting makes any picture look its best and obviously the R1 performs best under these conditions. Therefore the RX100, which also has an 'R' in its name, will do best when you choose the best type of harsh lighting, correct?

Re: Wow, Martin!

Dear Karen, as you are very well aware, harsh lighting only lasts for a few hours at best. This is why we, as photographers, generally have no time for lunch ;). We can always eat the weeds we shoot (or, as some suggest, to smoke them, which opens up the creative part of our brain and let's us see things like we could never otherwise have imagined - look at my pics again as proof of this )

Nice to see you here, Karen, cheers!
