  • Well, I have to admit that I don't remember well what I've payed for my A2 back in 2004. But it wasn't exactly inexpensive. And if I add inflation over 9 years from 2004 through 2013 when I got ...
  • Too bad that my A2 had to go when I got my RX100Mk1 in 2012. This cam already convinced my in IQ - not that much in handling though. And its zoom range from 28-100 only was sort of a step back. So ...
  • Hi, nice pics showing the nice colours for which I also liked my A2 quite a lot. Recently I've re-processed several of my A2 files and it's bright 28-200 lens helds its own over quite some time. Bu ...
  • Hi, from my experience with Sony's 1"-type cams like the RX100Mk1 (since 2012) and the later RX10Mk1 and Mk3 my take is as follows: 1) As some others mentioned already stopping the lens that far ...
  • Thanks for the informations. May I ask the crucial question now? Did you get the cam re-assembled and back to work? ;-)  I'd like to evaluate the odds for the "adventure" to take at least a glimpse ...
  • I am not and wasn't a big "chimper-in-field" so the replay-button didn't see much use. But different to many other cams, on the RX100 (at least the Mk1 as far as I'm aware of) this button can power ...
  • Yep. :-) And definitely those with their more recent (and pretty much more expensive) models might think about extending the cam's lifespan by a little more care than I did.
  • Replied in Yes
    Does that mean you opened the cam by yourself? If so, how do you rate the degree of difficulty to do so? And to get it all back in its place? :-)  Not much to loose when the cam is pretty unusable ...
  • Yes, thanks. Tried that. At least for the peace of my mind because at that point I was pretty convinced already the fault coming from a physical issue (like moisture, corrosion, damaged switch or ...
  • Thanks. Did that already w/o positive effect unfortunately.
  • Created discussion thread RX100 owners: A word of caution
    Hi all, as an owner of the RX100Mk1 since 2012 I've decided to report about what I'm experiencing with my cam considering its fundamental working condition - which I suppose to be related to ...
  • Adding to syber's reply, there is no dedicated version, Express or (paid) Pro, offered in the download process. It's on installation when you decide which version to install / use. Not sure though ...
  • Hi, played a bit around but w/o success. Did you notice on page 2 of the cam's networking menu item 2 where you can configure the access point info? I was able to connect it to my home network. But ...
  • Fully agree. But even in AF-S on the Mk3 the "wide" setting does surprisingly well with picking a (smaller) subject anywhere on the screen - at least as long as it shows more contrast than the BG. ...
  • Added 2 photos to their gallery

  • Hi, I don't have the answer but I'm also interested to learn what's up with it. One of the reason why I'm still keeping my Mk1 is that its remote controlling via smartphone app / WLAN is a breeze ...
  • While I agree about the advantages of a mono or tripod when shooting long FL, for me the screw mount on the RX10 (any) doesn't serve well for this purpose because it doesn't provide a good balance ...
  • Hi, while I'm a big fan of RAW shooting and processing, I'm under the impression that the shown conversion is a fair amount more contrasty than the ooc JPG - from my POV over the top. My reference ...
  • ...all the previous valid under the presumption the OP reffers to the RX10Mk4 - which is perhaps the key question. Otherwise on models < Mk4 BIF will be challenging at least. On my Mk3 I've been ...
  • If you possibly use the onboard flash on some occasion it's highly recommendable to remove the hood because towards WA it throws a shadow on  the subject.
