Separate RX1 Forum?

We need a Separate RX1 Forum! Seems like that's all everyone is talking about here on the Sony forum! I come here to read about the RX100 but all I see are RX1 threads!

Sony RX1 Sony RX100

despite its sensor

its still a fixed lens camera, so going by that definition it belongs here.

i think its hard to put a catagorie for this one.

this forum is not only for RX100 threads but for all Sony P&S camera's so you have to share ...:-)

Re: Separate RX1 Forum?

Every time a new camera comes out it dominates the forum for awhile. Just sit back, relax and enjoy life. Folks generally put the type cam in the title which makes it easy to find the ones that interest you.

Re: Separate RX1 Forum?

I was only joking (hence the emoticons) because of all the complaints about the amount of RX100 threads, now the RX1 is all everyone will be talking about until something new and better comes along.

I guess you failed to catch the tongue in cheek nature of his post despite the string of smiley/laughing faces.

I doubt that it will last long because the 2 people that can pay $2700 for the RX1 won't be able to post that much. At least it should quiet down those complaining about the RX100 price.

Just wait till DPR gives the RX1 a silver award after it's been reviewed.....

The RX1 May Benefit the Forum

Now, much of the focus on the RX100 may be diverted. But very few will be able to buy the RX1, so it may fade from interest fairly soon.

Re: Separate RX1 Forum?

Just make an RX subforum.

RX100 and RX1 goes there. And with the success of the RX100, Sony will make this an annual iteration.

i understood that

but we had a serious request for a separate RX100 forum to.

secondly i think people who buy this camera will be out on the streets making money, they dont frequent forums like this much.

I never ever show paid jobs on media as they are exclusive for the owner.

in the early day's of internet i had work stolen ........learned my lesson from that.

All Sony cameras belong in Sony Talk. It is a forum for general discussion on Sony products.

Re: Separate RX1 Forum?

Same thing happened on the M43 forum, for 6 months it became the OMD forum and the Fujitalk Forum became the X10 forum. Don't worry about it in 6 months time things will get back to normal

DPR messed it up. Otherwise, I guess, in Leica Talk forum, we should only discuss Leica P&S cameras. Where should people discuss Leica X2? Or M9?

But then, they are quite compact, so I guess they fit the profile of P&S?

RX forum if Sony goes a new RX line

If Sony release a RX10 later and in the long run more RX cameras (updated versions) it could maybe be a Sony RX forum. But until then ok to have the talk here
in the Sony forum. They call it Cyber Shoot after all if I remember right.

its clearly stated what this forum is about, also do you really think all Sony's fit the term compact ?

My SLT-A55 is a compact camera for a DSLR/SLT, that is. My NEX is a compact camera.

Do we also happen to have a pin pointed definition of what "compact" is?

Re: RX forum if Sony goes a new RX line

I think Sony should have branded their RX series outside of cyber-shot. DPR should then have separate RX forum too.
