Sony Wishlist - 1" sensor fixed lens camera

I hope Sony is watching this forum.

My most photos with RX100 are on the wider side. I wish if Sony can come up with a 1" sensor fixed lens camera with 24mm or 28mm equivalent lens, that'd be a killer. And if it is more pocketable (possibly it will be) than RX100, would be awesome.

Sorry if this was discussed before.

Not really. RX0 is not pocketable, addressing completely different segment

That should fit the bill. 1" sensor, 24mm equivalent  and very small.

Re: Sony Wishlist - 1" sensor fixed lens camera

I'd prefer an 16 to 30mm lens.

Then again one can stitch 24mm images if wider is desired.

It's way more pocketable and have an 1" sensor and 24mm equivalent focal length.

Addressing a different segment? Maybe, but it has what you initially asked for. What make this a bad solution, if what you want is something smaller than an RX100 with a fixed 24 or 28mm equivalent lens?

To me this seems like an extremely great inconspicuous camera.

I might read between the lines that what you really want is a much slimmer camera than an RX100, equipped with a 1" sensor and a fixed focal length wide angle lens?

Not on my wish list. Why limit yourself to a single focal length?

Sorry, 'phones have killed that market, and even the lesser zoom range cameras are at serious danger from the 'phones.

I can see only the 1" sensored big zoom cameras going forward, the RX100 M6 and updates with similar zoom will survive, (and the RX10 IV etc) the rest will not.

The APS-C and FF sensored chunky fixed lens cameras will possibly survive and be very expensive to extract those dollars from the very few fixed lens enthusiasts, though I do usually call them fixed lens snobs.

a lesser zoom like 16-50mm will sell.

How much more pocketable (flatter) could it be than an RX100III/IV/V with a retracted lens that covers 24-28mm at f/1.8-2.2? Not much, I'm thinking ... and a lens doesn't need to be flat when shooting. I'll stick with the zoom.

Yeah the RX0 and RX0M2.

People pocket the RX100 series. It sounds like time to give up the skinny jeans and get some pants with real pockets.

I doubt! Ricoh GR and RX1 popularity say otherwise.

RX0 is nowhere fitting the bill. It has a slower and mediocre f4 lens which does even cover the full sensor, the effective output of 15MP compared to RX100 f1.8 & 20MP.

I doubt! Ricoh GR and RX1 popularity say otherwise.

But how many of those cameras are actually out there compared to the number of 'phones being used for the same purpose?

It's distinctly a very small minority of photographers, a niche within a niche it seems.

and that niche within a niche is where money can be made... look at Leica.

I assume you mean prime when you say "fixed lens". Why? What advantage would it have over the RX100Va with a 24-70 f1.8-2.8 lens.

Higher quality lens in a slimmer package. And prime simply mean one focal length. Fixed means one focal length that canā€™t be taken off the camera. Some of us prefer primes to zooms.
