On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (405 comments in total)

Thank you for the review of the RX100M5.
Where can one get the pre-release version mentioned of Camera Raw that works with the Raw of the above camera? Appreciate the help.

tbcass: DPR "The dial on the rear face of the camera is much less impressive. It's one of the better examples of its type and can be moved the number of steps you require with only a slightly raised risk of over-turning or accidental rotation. However, it still requires you to reposition your right hand away from the shooting grip in order to make a change - something that shouldn't be necessary on a camera costing this much."

No it doesn't because it can be reached with your thumb without moving your hand. I don't own this camera but I do own an A77ii which is bigger and I can reach the joystick with my thumb with no problem. Overall the ergonomics are inferior to my A77ii however.

This Gold award should bring out the Sony haters/Trolls in full force.

I agree. I have no issues with the rotary dial in the back. Works well, although I miss the Tri-Nav system in the NEX-7. Not sure why Sony banished that.

markie_jan61: USB charging is a deal-breaker, regardless of a camera's capabililties.

Don't know why Sony continues to travel down that road.

Exactly what I did years back. I bought an external charger and spare battery, so I can charge two batteries at once (one in-camera and one in the external charger. But I agree, Sony should've included an external charger.

TruckTurner: I hate to pile on, but I don't see how this device improves on anything that's already available. I suppose if someone saw it in isolation and didn't know about other options they might be impressed. Still, I don't think I'd give up $75-$100 for one.

Not exactly Matthew. I use the SMDV RFN-4 for Nikon and it allows you to replace the USB cable at wish or when using another camera system. I use this trigger for my Nikon SLR and my Sony a6000. Two cables, one trigger. It also uses one AAA battery in the remote and one AAA in the receiver. Works flawlessly.

In reply to:

klopus: Why is it "Top of the World" and not "Top of Western Hemisphere"? It's by far not the tallest building on earth.

Everyday I see 1WTC from my home across Hudson and it still amazes me how they managed to commemorate such a tragedy with such a bland, ungraceful and uninspiring slab of modern architecture that also inexplicably looks unfinished because of an abrupt top. And it took them more than 10 years to design and build it. One only needs to check modern Shanghai and Dubai skyline to see how unoriginal and disappointing this building is. And that in the city graced with Chrysler building and other Art Deco needles. Heck, if you want modern just near by there's an amazing New York By Gehry residential tower (http://img.streeteasy.com/nyc/image/66/70473966.jpg).

I don't know. It looks pretty good to me:

DezM: That's pretty pathetic of Nikon. They don't give a sh_t about current customers. They just want to attract new ones.

Innovation and leading is of no concern to Nikon.

Don't play dumb. Many of us are or were waiting for true upgrades, not downgrades. This is a downgrade.

VIRTWO: Please roll out a fix for D7100 as well.

My Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art lens works just fine on the D610

Haha! Good one :)

Looks great but no Phase Detect AF and the bracketing is limited to 2/3 EV. Come on Sony?

And have been using their Digital Holsters for both my SLR and Sony NEX cameras.

Smart Remote Control is.....smart. This should've been implemented long ago for iOS or Android devices.
