I have owned my RX100m1.5 aka RX100mI.V for the last 26 months so I am will write a short user review. I call it RX100m1.5 because it is the newer version of the RX100 that comes with firmware 2.0. For full reviews check this site or other sites. This will give some details of things I discovered about the camera that I never saw mentioned in reviews. The latest firmware version you can download from Sony is 1.1. The 2.0 is different than the 2.0 for the RX100III, etc. though. This post is ...

This is my first review on the DP Review forums and it is of quite an old camera, the Sony RX100 Mk1. I also use a Nikon DSLR (and have had endless compacts in the past) but it is my trusty RX100 which goes everywhere with me (it has for some time now) and even when I have the DSLR, the RX100 is in my bag too. I recently, almost moved on from the RX100 to one of the much newer models but re-assessing it (and to some extent writing this review) has stopped me in my tracks. As mentioned this is ...

This camera was a true wonder when it was first launched many years ago, and now like me it is getting rather old, ...and still a staggering tool ;o)

I am still amazed at the capability of this gem of a camera.

Nice picture quality but annoying things make me consider returning the camera. Here is the string representing the address of the video folder: SD Storage Device (H) > Private > AVCHD > BDMV > STREAM I found my video after digging through all folders and subfolders. Why could not they make it easier? Also, I still could not figure out how to view (download) some pictures I made on internal memory.

It was about 50 years ago my father had a Zeiss Ikon 'contaflex' SLR camera, in which he took family photos that were on the shelves of my grandparents' home for many years. My first Sony-Zeiss purchase was a DSC-T300, #2009# which was a little tricky to operate, but worked around, getting some fine results.. I lost it through theft, so purchased the RX100, after much discussion, with a budget of $A750.00. My only regret is that I should have purchased earlier, but photography was not a ...

to extend or zoom after about 1000 shots. Too expensive to repair. Now I worry about my Sony HX90v. Have lost confidence in Sony compacts.

This nice compact Sony shoots excellent images along with video. A lot of photographers are now taking to the skies and using drones for aerial photography and cinematography.  When you buy a drone, it is not always necessary to buy a camera also. For example this Sony DSC-RX100 is compatible with the Draganflyer X4-ES drone. Another example would be the Sony NEX-7 camera.  This camera is compatible with the DJI Spreading Wings S1000+. It may also be another consideration before purchasing a ...

This camera give exellent IQ for its small size. Good high-ISO low-light shots. I prefer canon colors, but the colors of this camera are for my taste also good, with a little tweaking in camera. In the beginning a was a bit reluctant to buy this one, because a generally don't like the sony JPG output (HX9V, too much smearing), but to my big surprise with the RX100 the JPG come out quite good. Yes I'm a JPG-shooter. I must say, I don't like the menu structure. I prefer canon and panasonic ...

Because of the big sensor and the Carl Zeiss lens, the images get extreme high level of details and sharpness. Also at low light conditions, the RX 100 do the job correctly. The smart functions of night shot, panaorama and HDR, similar as the NEX models, makes it really great to use. SONY has really lifted their cameras and their software above the competiors. The full HD video makes the camera also to be my best video camera ever. The zoom range of 3,6x is a limitation.  BUT : The internal ...
