  • Replied in RX1RII
    It's difficult to know what's going to happen with pricing as it depends what happens with future cameras, if Sony release a mkIII (no evidence they are at the moment) or another manufacturer a ...
  • As above there's OIS on the telephoto sensor but not on the main sensor which is a deal breaker for me as I find it very useful on my current phone even though it's a shorter focal length,

  • The Galaxy Note 9 does have a micro SD slot, headphone port and OIS on the main camera yet also has a similar sized 4000mah battery.

  • Given how organised the thieves were I'd worry they'll hit the shop again as there's plenty other expensive equipment there.

    I became aware of Ffordes a few years ago when someone on the forums...

  • That's what makes the decision difficult, I find 25MP fine, no issues with the AF as I don't shoot anything fast and I don't find I have much need for an EVF on a small body.  The main reasons I ...
  • I bought the original RX1R to take cycling with me, I occasionally take the RX100 or NEX-6 with me but I missed the image quality of the the D750 which was simply too big to take.  The RX1R is ...
  • What specifically do you prefer about the mk II?  I'm still stuck choosing to keep my RX1r or to upgrade so I'd appreciate your thoughts. I also have an RX100IV and I've always like the RX100 ...
  • That is helpful thanks as that's the sort of post I was looking for.  It sums up what I've seen elsewhere that it's not a big upgrade in IQ but it is a substantial upgrade in usability which many ...
  • I haven't upgraded the RX100 as the mk V is a very similar camera and the mk VI is something a bit different. The RX1RII does seem to offer a decent IQ upgrade but it's difficult to work out how ...
  • Replied in RX1R vs RX1R II?
    I've been spending the weekend reading up on threads and articles on these two cameras and going round in circles, some people think it's worth every penny to go from the mk 1 to the mk 2 while ...
  • This is a very strange review in that it doesn't make even a single reference to the GoPro Fusion's main rival which is the Garmin Virb 360. It's in a similar price range and also features the...

  • I thought this an appropriate place to ask rather than a separate topic on its own. I have an RX10mk2 which I bought just before the mk3 was announced, if I'd known a similar camera with a much ...
  • Crowdfunding is absolutely not investing because crucially, backers receive no share of the company - it's simply preordering an item at a slight discount and almost no protection. Investors can...

  • Phone cameras have certainly improved a lot, I thought my older Note 4 was a good shooter for its size but the Note 8 is even better. However there's still a big difference in performance between...
