  • I prefer to stick a piece of 120 roll film to the screen and do it that way......
  • I got one of these with my RX100M2, package deal, 2+ years ago.  Well pleased. Now here's a thing, bear with me while I drift off topic but it does come back, honest. Up to the mid 60's the camera ...
  • Yes I got an RX100 M2 about 3 years ago. That goes in my pocket. My P10 phone has a very good camera by phone standards. One charger does both. The world is a tripod with a bit of imagination so no ...
  • and manageable charging time? I wonder if they will use swappable battery packs?  Not a possibility for cars because on busy days the 'swap station' ends up with loads of discharged packs, of ...
  • Off topic: Hundertwasser was a very odd character: it's reported that he once gave an impassioned speech railing against straight lines in architecture at an open UN symposium.  He attracted ...
  • Replied in Rt 66
    Had a trip in 1988, rented a Buick 2 door, drove through AZ towards the end of a big loop from SFO via many national parks including both sides of Grand Canyon and back to the coast at LA.  it was ...
  • Excellent band, saw them in Manchester in '73 (or was it '72?) soon after Brian Jones died.  Mick Taylor on lead, before Ronnie Wood. Digital photography hadn't been invented back then, and no ...
  • Replied in new RX100 mk1
    I have an M2, same lens and sensor and well pleased, not carried a DSLR on a trip for 3 years now.  Charges off my phone charger so hand baggage only trips are a breeze and its refreshing to have ...
  • Thanks Useful to know about OIS, I guess you can always use open camera for a bit more control.
  • Thanks for this. Useful review. I too have a Sony RX100ii and I'm using a Huawei P10 which has a cracked screen currently held together by a chunky screen protector. OK but won't last forever. ...
  • Been there (Y and GT) twice - 1993 and 2008.  Back in 93 it was far less crowded, got through a lot of Kodachrome 64 in my Pentax MX.  2008 much busier, using a (by current standards) primeval ...
  • I have a P10, bought just after the P20 came out so a good deal, couldn't get anywhere near as good a camera for the same money from anyone else. Replaced a Nokia 830 when MS abandoned its phone ...
  • Don't compare it with a later RX100, compare it with what else you can buy for the same money.  I have  a well used M2, same zoom range etc, as the original, and have no desire to pay almost 4x as ...
  • Created discussion thread McCullin
    I spent 2 hours in Don McCullin exhibition at the Tate last week (London).  Room after room of B&W prints, some harrowing images of his time in war zones and impoverished parts of the UK, some ...
  • Replied in Japan.
    Japan was on my 'maybe one day' list, but those tourist numbers discourage me. I went to Barcelona in the early 80's, great.  Went back for a business trip in the late 90's, unpleasantly crowded.  ...
  • It really is excellent if you can get to see it.  I remember his photographs in the Sunday Times during the Vietnam War, when the Sunday Time was a proper newspaper not a piece of the Murdoch ...
  • My wrist strap came out of my bag of bits and has a thin nylon bit at the end which just about goes through the eyelet.  Might have been on a very old Kodak compact.  I have no viewfinder. Not ...
  • Mostly and always in cities, small wrist strap on right hand side, camera goes in my pocket (jacket if I'm wearing one, or trouser if not) loosely wrapped in a large thin spectacles cleaning ...
  • All good stuff. I have an M2, generally the auto or superior auto setting gives good results and makes sensible decisions in good light but allows shutter speeds that are far too low in poor light ...
  • One seemingly undocumented feature, at least on my M2, if the lens retracts while you are reviewing and you want to take another shot, you don't have to power off and on.  A quick press on the ...
