SamHart: Hi- I have RX100 II. I am desperately wondering if any body has faced the problem of random photos being read as "unsupported image format" on the computer? They are also blacked out on the camera too.
I followed any advice on deleting all photos on camera and formatting the card, but it happened again.
This malign problem has ruined at least half of my photos. The worst part is that you don't know which files will be like this or will luckily be saved as a healthy one.
Please give any tip that would address this headache.


Make sure you are not shooting in the RAW mode. If you are, you will be unable to open the pictures, unless you have the software to match.

I would like to comment on the click-less ring. I would like it for zooming better than one with click detents. I have a Canon SX-100 that I remotely control the focal length with. I am stuck with settings of 24, 28, 35, 50, 85, 100 and 120mm. If you look at the angular field coverage at each step, you find large gaps between some, and almost duplicates with others.

I would much rather have it infinitely variable.


Also with all of these cameras, be aware when comparing the extremes in focal lengths, you take into effect the aspect ratio of the final work you expect to do. The sensor in my SX-100 is .75:1 (close to an 8x10 for instance). If you make prints close to this, and you use a camera with a 2:3 ratio, like the RX-100, what looks like a Wide Angle view of 28 mm becomes more like 30 mm. You wind up cropping quite a bit off of the ends of the image.
