rx100m6, I got some darn good results with it
5

Just thought I would show some results, much more important than test shots for sure

I am impressed with the very nice bokeh it gives. Here's some, 200mm f4.5

lets crop it

red

red ants

used manual focus for this

of course that old glass has some chips

lets crop it

did he shave?

Re: rx100m6, I got some darn good results with it

How about some of you posting some good stuff here also!

After the foot races on the beach, everyone gets a medal

Everyone got ice cream also

Pretty good reach

Isn't that me standing on that boat?

another nice bokeh, I might think I used my RX1r for Shallow Focus

Hi Elliot:

You are for sure getting some great captures there.

Elliott, I really like all of them especially the ones with the family and the boat.  You were able to get the best out of the camera be it night or day

Re: rx100m6, I got some darn good results with it

You are not helping me with these fantastic results.

I'm currently with RX100v and RX10iv in the 1 inch sensor kit. I'm tempted

by the RX100vi but I'm holding onto my shekels for the a7000. If the a7000 is

not announced at Photokina I'll grab the RX100vi.

Re: rx100m6, I got some darn good results with it

except for my repeated need for kids sports (zoom and fast shutter), I would still have it. Looking at these results, what I will miss the most is the RX1r like shallow focus it gives, and the quality of the blur (bokeh). Seems best between 100-200mm. The zoom lets you get close without stepping in someone's flower bed or kneeling down or bending, all using the zoom when close.

Not gonna get this with my rx100m3. I was at least 6 feet away. I made it my desktop image, looks great to me when larger.

while looking for zoom shots, I found a few more flower shots someone might like

What are the indoor shots like? How do you find the cloudy days or night time shots end up? I am thinking of grabbing one for the zoom, but worried about the slower lens.

The biggest limiting factor is me not the camera.

Re: rx100m6, I got some darn good results with it

elliott, i continue to be impressed w what you got out of this cam, and i'm sorry to see you abandon it.  as i've mentioned, i have an upcoming london/paris for my 70th and am looking forward to using it in the field, now having a better grasp of how to use it actually, partly thanks to you

Wonderful, no bug bites, no heat stroke, comfy chair to get off my feet, ....

Like my prior S85, R1, rx100 m1,m3, and now the m6: Sharpness is not an issue for photographs, I cannot see softness in any corner of my photos, so, try to forget any test shots of graphs I posted, I am. I was testing a returned unit, someone could have, and perhaps did drop it, who knows.

Color: I love Sony OOC Jpeg colors, including the majority of indoor photos. Sometimes, with mixed lighting, the AWB cannot get it right, but, in those situations, neither does my Oly, or cell phones. In a diner, daylight, window tint, fluorescent and incandescent lighting, ouch.

My dining room has lots of windows, lots of daylight. It has a bunch of incandescent lighting coming in from the living room side (dimmable, so that incandescent has color shifts), and, a concealed fluorescent strip above the other/picture window end, very rarely used, but, Donna uses it when wrapping her ebay sales, and may leave it on, and I may not notice when taking a quick grab of something the grandkids are doing. My fault, not the camera.

How do you find the cloudy days or night time shots end up? I am thinking of grabbing one for the zoom, but worried about the slower lens.

So was I, and many like yourself, but I was very pleasantly surprised how well I did with it. The combo of more aggressive noise reduction and stronger Image Stabilization has to be experienced. If you shoot RAW, you do your own NR, but you still get the advantage of it's terrific IS.

Everybody:

If you want one, if you can spend that much money without regret, if you think it is great for most of what you do, except ......, just buy one from a source that offers returns. I expect the majority will happily keep them.
