cdembrey: My iPhone Xs has an IP68 water resistance rating. My Apple Watch Series 4 has a water resistance rating of 50 meter. Why would I want a garish camera?

@cdembrey Please try using your iPhone Xs underwater in the sea or even a swimming pool for that matter and see how long it lasts. Does Face ID or the touch screen work underwater?

Typical dpreview troll comment, either intentionally or unintentionally ignorant of the product being reviewed. Please try harder...

JavaJones: It's stunning to me that the only manufacturer doing 1" sensors in this space is a tiny company no one has ever heard of. Why isn't Sony absolutely owning this market with a waterproof/"tough" version of the RX100 series? I personally won't ever be buying one of these until they have 1" sensors. FFS.

And yes, I know the engineering on a tough camera and lens is different (and probably more difficult) than the typical RX100. Make it a bit bigger, that's fine with me, make the lens have less reach, whatever. Just give me a 1" sensor and Raw with decent buffer and operation speed. Why are waterproof cameras still in the dark ages?

I use my Sony RX100M3 with a Meikon 40m housing that I got second hand (unused) from eBay for £40. It's a great combination for snorkelling and the beach. The only negative is the size when compared to the TG-6 for instance. I don't think that you could do a waterproof 1" with zoom and flash that would be truly pocketable. There's always a compromise to be made somewhere...

Terrible dynamic range, clearly using a Canon sensor... Just thought that I'd kick off a typical brain-dead fan-boy DPReview comments section. Have fun all

(unknown member): Gear does matter, and that is why you see so many of these gorgeous (dynamic-range-intensive) photos shot with either Nikon or Sony...

Well, it only took post number 2 before this became a competition between fanboys of various camera manufacturers. Standard DPReview comments section...
