    Lots of options for taking all kinds of pics/ scenes. Nice low light pics. Takes awesome landscape pics. Price is a bit high but worth it if you want DSLR quality pics without the bulk.

    Sony RX100 Will do things others will not for size

    Ease of use, Picture quality, Price

    Excellent camera for beginning or advance. A bit heavy for a point an shot but worth the weight. At first some time will be needed to understand the menu and camera settings could be confusing. Control Ring is great for manual focus and a must for that one of a kind photo. Color is great and speed and camera reaction is fantastic for a point and shot. I have been taken 35mm since the 1960's and have had many cameras. I now have a Sony a200 . however with 15 grand kids i needed something i could carry around in my pocket. Have used other point and shoot cameras but nothing could freeze kids fast enough or could take one picture after another fast ,until i purchased the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. I must admit it took me about 3 months to decided because of the price and not knowing if it would do what i expected of the camera. When I seen on Best-buy wed site and open-box in excellent condition for a price i could live with i decided to purchased(and with a return policy that was 15 days) i would see if the camera could do what i wanted it to and it did... Cons Price .. A bit weighty for a point an shot, Does not use AA batteries Flash does get in the way of holding camera when it pops up(But does give good coverage) No view finder Screen a bit hard to view in bright light . Overall an excellent point an shot for fast kids and fast movement. i Purchased the extra metal hand grip and screen saver overlay. from Amazon ..you will not be disappointed. The hand grip will make holding the camera a lot easier and safer. Also your fingers will not get in the way of the flash coming up.

    Features, Picture quality

    This is a great camera. I'm a novice so it was a little confusing at first but then I realized for every option or feature you can hit the ? button and it explains what the function option means so all the options and settings are not as confusing or scary. It took me a few hours to understand the basics because I ? every option vs trying to study manual. It also has a way to save favorite option setting choices to scroll through that you might use more often. It is great in low light, sunny, panoramic, foggy all settings. Indoors at night in low light like a bar scene I don't even need a flash in fact I haven't even used the flash yet. Megapixels are great. Every shot comes out great. Pictures included are hand held shots no tripod because I don't have one yet. Zoom feature is really great also. The defocused background can get a little confusing but you can widen the area so it focuses more of the picture and if you zoom it tends to pick up the background more like in my sunset pic with tree branch hanging down in front of me, the sunset came in clearer which is what I wanted. Love Love Love this camera. Click on the photo tiles below, the tiles look blurry but not the shot when you open it ;)

    Compact, Features

    The sensor in the RX100 is the same 1" format that Nikon uses in its 1-System. It is considerably smaller than those used in most interchangeable lens cameras but it significantly larger than those used in most enthusiast compacts. Conclusion - Pros Excellent image quality and solid ISO performance Class-leading movie features and quality A good degree of customization puts your favorite settings at your fingertips Fast operation, including focus and Raw capture Flexible lens range (though a brighter zoom would have been nice) Excellent range of additional features (sweep panorama and auto HDR in particular) Good battery life for this class of camera USB-charging (with fast charger) makes it easy to travel light Conclusion - Cons Clickless control dial contributes to vague and unengaging shooting experience Flash metering is unpredictable Lack of ND filter can limit the ability to use wide apertures Screen hard to see in direct sunshine, despite WhiteMagic technology No official option to fit filters onto the lens (third-party glue-on adapters are available) In-camera raw conversion would add flexibility Playback confusingly separated into stills, MP4 and AVCHD sections Lag when trying to zoom in playback mode is irksome USB-only charging makes it awkward to use a spare battery

    This Camera Is Great

    Cons mentioned:
    Flash

    I got this and though a little dissapointed with the instructions and how to use documents on camera itself. I have you tubed info and googled info and called Sony tech and even they couldn't figure out how to put a micro sd card in it but it says it takes it. Other than that hog wash, once I got the basics of the camera and figured out when the dial is set to SCN to turn the ring on the lens housing to switch to different modes, I loved it, I was finally able to do the Macro shots I wanted where Auto wouldn't do them. The images are beautiful and this camera is amazing for a point and shoot. I'm not impressed with blown up images though, actually kind of disappointed with that. I don't like you can't crop on the camera itself but it does allow you to zoom on an already taken picture for some reason? Sony will refer you to get Play Memories for free but I had a bunch of pictures and my comp blows, so it just kept loading and I could never access anything, but they said I could crop with that program. Other than the negatives I've stated it's small, it shoots quick if want to take a bunch of pictures one after the other, clear zoom is nice, great auto focus if set in the right modes, takes beautiful color pictures and fit's in a case in your jacket pocket. I advise the wrist strap to be used, it's a please drop me I'm so hard to hold onto item. P.S. You won't use the flash much, it just washes out most photo's making them lame.

    Excellent low light camera

    Picture quality

    love this camera. Excellent photo and video. Works great alone side my HX90V. I use the RX100 for low light photography, and the HX90V for the long zoom reach. I know have the RX10, A6000 with the SEL35F18 as a tandem. What I really like about the RX100, is the size and photo quality of this little camera. I find myself using it more than the others. I still think its the best point and shoot camera to buy under $500.00 Photo just to show that I own the cameras.

    A Great Performer in a Small Body

    Pros mentioned:
    Price

    This camera has a body not much larger than my Canon S110 or Nikon 1 S1 but can provide much better images than any of them even though the S1 also has an 1 inch sensor. I bought it from BB as an open box item with a great price that I couldn't resist. Its small form factor includes a great sensor and a super sharp Carl Zeiss zoom lens that allow you to take amazing pictures that could rival those taken by large sensors such as M43 or even APS-C in good light. Although it's now almost two generations old after the RX100 MkIII came out, you won't regret buying it especially if you could find one with a great price.

    Great point and shoot

    |
    Posted .

    Having had my older point and shoot stolen, I was in the market for a new one. I was thinking twice as I was also buying a new SLR camera the same day (since that on was also stolen) and didn’t know if I would really need two again. But, I’m really glad I decided to go with this camera. I’ve had a Sony point and shoot before and I hated it, so while I was leery about going back to Sony, I had only read and heard great things about this model. The pictures have been amazing. Even in low light I can get great pictures without using the flash. The only two things I don’t care for is that when you charge it, you charge it from the camera adapter, and not by taking the battery out. And the other is that to change the ISO when in manual mode, you have to go through the menu settings to do it. So when trying to change it fast, you are pretty much stuck. Overall though, it’s been really great.

    Pros mentioned:
    Picture quality

    This camera is a great option for those who want near professional quality photos. It takes great macro shots as well as portrait and landscape photos. The automatic settings do great for everyday shots without having to tinker with settings. When I have a complex shot, the manual controls allow me to take great photos in low light conditions or when focus needs to be honed in to capture the picture. The photo quality is amazing. The 20 MP image allows me to enlarge and crop the photo without pixelating. This is a great camera for the learning photographer who wants professional quality control without having to pay for a DSLR and high-end equipment. The battery life is incredible. I can take 200-300 photos before having to recharge.

    DSLR quality that fits in your pocket

    Posted .

    After researching cameras for over 6 months, Sony released the RX100 and it was a perfect fit for me. I am traveling to Argentina to do mission work for over a year and I wanted DSLR quality pictures and full HD 1080p video that could fit in my pocket. I have exactly what I want in this camera. I didn't want to be carrying a huge DSLR or a micro 4/3 around in my hand and get robbed in a foreign country. This camera is perfect to whip out of your pocket, take a picture with less than a second power on time and snap that picture with almost no focus time. When people see my photos they ask if they came from a DSLR because they are so sharp, bright, crisp and clear. I love the ring around the lens that spins, you can have it adjust the zoom, the exposure, the filter, anything you want, and the Function buttons and menus are completely customizable. The shooting filters are so much fun to play with, it has in camera HDR, color selection with blue, green, yellow, and red, miniature focusing, watercolor, color pop, B&W and so much more. Photos at night time are amazing. You get what you pay for and I would pay even more for this camera with the quality you get that actually slides into your pocket. When I opened the box, I was actually surprised to see that the camera was smaller than I thought. I bought a waterproof/dustproof Pelican 1010 case that it fits perfectly in and a lcd scratch protector from Sony. I am thoroughly pleased with the camera, it is super fast, all metal build, and stunning quality. The only con that I can find is that the black paint on the exterior stratches easily, but can be fixed if kept in a case. And with the review above, the manual is lacking, but once you start using the camera it is extremely easy to catch on.

    Great point and shoot!

    Posted .

    Like most of you I have owned many point and shoot cameras in the past. If you want an excellent mini DSLR camera you can take with you anywhere look no further. You will not be disappointed. The bigger sensor makes full use of it's MP rating and for those who own a bigger APSC camera it's got all of the big camera functionality you're accustomed to. It's low light capabilities are great and 1080p video if needed. It's pricey but you get a lot for what you pay for. Not my only camera as I also own the Sony A58 but I do use this a lot more often for its versatility and ultimately great picture taking capabilities. It won't disappoint and it's one of those rare purchases you will have that is truly worthwhile so bite the bullet already! And oh btw checkout BB open box I got it there for much less that retail price. Hope this helps!

    Great point and shoot

    Posted .

    The two cameras I was deciding between were the rx100 (versions 1 through 3) and the canon g7x. I'm a canon guy since 2006 with a sd700is point-and-shoot and a t2i SLR, so I was leaning towards the canon. After going through reviews, I thought the rx100 was more polished. I sprung on the rx100m1 when bestbuy had a great deal a few months ago. I'm so glad with my purchase. I couldn't fit my SLR on a trip to Vancouver and Seattle, so the rx100 was a great alternative for me. If I did have the space, I would have taken the T2i, but I prefer the rx100 for places where compactness is useful. I was also worried about the rx100m1 being many years old since I purchased it just two months ago, I recently found out the rx100m4 specs are out and reflecting on the decision - I still think the rx100m1 was a great deal and I would buy it again.

    Amateur photographer loving the quality!

    Posted .

    I'm someone that has really gotten used to my phones camera as my primary PnS. I've been thinking about getting a DSLR but didn't want to lug around a bag or have a strap around my neck. I did extensive research on this camera and decided to take the plunge. Its incredible! I love taking pictures with it, its super fast, the different modes are impressive with the amount of settings you can manipulate and change and having it in my pocket or in my girlfriends purse is the MAIN reason I bought this camera. Yes, a DSLR offers great versatility but in the end I wanted DSLR like quality in a PnS frame and this little guy delivers. I also bought the eye-fi for $40 bucks which basically transfers pics form the RX100 to my iPhone/iPad wirelessly. It does it anywhere; it does not need a wifi network to make it happen. Imagine taking a sick pic with the RX100 and then automagically it goes to your iPhone where you then upload instantly to Instagram. Its sick!!

    Pocketable SLR

    Well..Its not actually an SLR, it doesn't have a viewfinder. But this is a tiny camera with a big sensor and a fast lens that produces stellar images with low noise. This means you can shoot in low light without a flash and still get excellent pictures.

    There are lots of reviews of this camera online and I I won't attempt to one-up the pros. Suffice it to say that this camera is outstanding. It's pricey, but if you want high quality images and video but still want to carry the camera in your pocket, this is a great option.

    Sony RX100 - Great general use camera

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use

    As a long-time Sony/Zeiss user (Back in the DSC-S50 days of 1999), this camera rocks with the T* Zeiss lens. The overall quality, fit and finish is excellent and expected of a made in Japan Sony product. The menu is easy to use and follow and setup is easy. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone as a backup to your DSLR or as a standalone general use camera.
