About me:

I have been fortunate and financially able to retire early. Now being a few years older, I just take life one day at a time and with no worries. Admittedly, I'm just a happy vacation and family snapshooter with no photographic skills at all, and I really don't care. I have no ego.
I'm not one of those self-centered, miserable, lacking in any social skills, socially isolated chaps lurking the forums spewing rude and inappropriate comments on others. You know who they are. But I really appreciate all the helpful people here who offer positive comments and suggestions.
I'm here to learn more about photography. And to appreciate images taken by others. Photography is just a hobby for me, and my life is not centered around it. That's it.

Karroly: RX100 power and features increase at each iteration but at the cost of battery life :
RX100II = 350 pictures
RX100III = 320 pictures
RX100IV = 280 pictures
RX100V = 220 pictures
Will the next ones be so powerful they can only take 1 picture ?

I get about 400 stills on one battery if I don't chimp. Battery life goes down dramatically when I shoot vids.

pacnwhobbyist: One thing that is not mentioned about these cameras (this is true of competing Canons too) is that they are huge dust magnets like nothing I've ever seen. Just carry it in your pocket a couple of times to see how much dust and particles get stuck inside the lens. It's the main reason I don't mess with the compact 1" sensor cameras anymore despite the decent image quality.

Never had a problem with dust with mine. I do carry it it the OEM case most of the time.

In reply to:

Irakly Shanidze: Red accents and shiny stainless carbines are wonderful if you want to be more visible than you really are :)
Wax coating and plastic clips are also features that show how well-informed Domke now is about what real photographers need.

PS perhaps red zippers are for canon users to match red rings on L lenses :)

Does it withstand 212 degrees Fahrenheit.?

Betico: I just hope that these bags still being made here in the USA.

Fabric Is imported from China. Workmanship of new ones are not as good QA as my 15 year old canvas F2 Domke. Bag hugs my body like a well worn pair of jeans,

Like your knickers, Domke's come in many colours, styles, and fits. Get a few to match your knicks. :)

OhioPhoto: MY two favorite quotes about camera bags, and I can't remember who said either.

When asked how many camera bags he had, the photographer responded: "somewhere between way too many and not nearly eonough."

And ...

"I used to make fun of all of my wife's handbag collection until I became a photographer. Now I just keep my mouth shut."

Camera bag G.A.S. is like your knickers in different colours, styles, and fits, You can't just have one, but need many, ;)

brotherwarner: I don't like the domke, because for me it looks ugly like an camera bag. My favorite camera bag is the medium messenger from compagnon:

http://compagnon-bags.com/en/product-category/leather-camerabags

I use Wotancraft leather messenger bag when carrying full MFT kit.
ONA Bowery in cognac leather when I'm just carrying my Pen F with single lens, or Fuji X100T. Both bags of bespoke quality and inexpensive.
A beat up 15 year old Domke F2 when I'm just slumming around.
