      A Very Powerful Point and Shoot Camera

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      With all the Camera brands and models currently available, why would anyone want, or expect, to pay $1,000 for a Point & Shoot Camera, one that does not even have an interchangeable Lens? Here are some answers as to WHY: As one who is not a professional, but is a hobbyist enthusiast level photographer (primarily Landscape and Wildlife), I utilize some (15) different cameras comprised of the Canon, Nikon, and Sony brands, and ranging from DSLR & DSLT to Higher-end P&S cameras. This Sony DSC-RX10 utilizes a 1" Exmore-CMOS Sensor which is only slightly smaller than an APSC Sensor, has a very high MP count, has very fast Focusing ability, lots of Focusing points, expands to over 8.3x Optical Zooming plus Digital Zooming, uses a high quality Carl Zeiss Lens, captures your still shots at amazing speed, its Viewfinder and LCD are extremely clear, it has a metal Magnesium Camera Body with polymer over-coating, provides manual or automated functionality that is equal to, or even surpasses many DSLR products, live action Movie capturing is crystal clear, is capable of using Glass Filters, and externally attached Lens Hoods, and is fast in all aspects - except one. The camera is just a bit slow in turning on because of a high end Bionz Processor, and can also be just a touch slow in Processing your shot just taken, even with Ultra High Speed Class 10, 64mb/sec.+ SD Memory Cards. But slower only in comparison to some of the other cameras available, yet it is still very fast in capturing a still, or action shot - in fact faster than many DSLT/DSLT type cameras. Its new version Bionz Processor is so exact, that this is why a touch slower seems to be perceived in the processing - NOT the actual Picture taking time. That operation is ultra fast! The only other con is Sony's Detailed User Manuals - the 250+ pages- which are via on-line, or on-line download accessible that utilize the "Cascading Sheets" methodology of information. NOT available in common Book form, or indexed by a direct Table of Contents and Page Numbering. But this is the methodology Sony has chosen for all its Camera products currently - many of us have complained loudly. The bottom line - Sony's cameras and products are top shelf, and are very innovative. They are high quality, do the job nicely, and are state of the art for the consumer market with leading edge technology. The RX10 Camera is a true winner and provides a lot of functionality horsepower for the user. YES - it is worth the higher pricing!

      Very nice! A few drawbacks


      I’ve been wanting to upgrade for a while. I wanted an all-in-one camera but also wanted top quality images. This camera caught my eye when it was introduced. The price is steep, but in my opinion, it turns out to be worth it. Pros: Really gorgeous image quality. A good zoom range. The interface quickly becomes intuitive and the software seems very well thought out. Though it’s a tad heavy, it is manageable for an afternoon hike. For the most part the ergonomics are good. Cons: The zoom is kind of clunky. As others have mentioned, I’d rather a faster truly manual zoom with a much shorter turn ratio. The tripod mount placement makes it such that you cannot articulate the view-screen while the camera is mounted on a tripod. You can see the shot through your smart phone but that takes a bit of doing. The “Menu” button is placed so that you have to use your left thumb to press it. This may sound like a petty concern, but it is actually very awkward to have to use two thumbs to poke around the camera. Instead of being able to hold the camera in my left hand, I have to shift holding it in my right just to press one button. The camera seems to really gobble up the battery. I have owned many digital cameras over the years and this is the first time I’ve considered buying a back up battery. Conclusion: The first three cons seem pretty unforgivable for the engineers at Sony. They seem like common sense issues that should have been remedied before the camera hit the street. Otherwise it is everything I’d hoped for. The flaws do not come close to ruining the experience for me. Great all-in-one!

      Rx 10

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      This Sony RX10 is the most versatile cam available. I would buy another and another, because it's that good. Does it Blow a SLR out of the water. It depends on what you want. This cam is sharp as it gets. Low light is good, but not SLR great. Bright highlight is a little high also, but you can shoot in RAW with this cam and for all around versatility it's awesome. This is no point and shoot cam. It's a full function cam. Any cam these days could be considered point and shoot, because of the automation built in them. This definitely the cam to buy for your vacation. Light weight and great imagine. I would not say it's a night cam, but indoor with low light it's excellent, at the ball park good, but not professional. Outdoors amazing. For tours excellent. All focal lengths and light weight, bright imagine and sharp.

      Finally an incredible CAM (and great 4K also)!

      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      Have bought and returned probably 10 cams, BestBuy employees must hate me by now but i wont settle. After almost giving up on finding a portable cam that didnt weight 7+lbs and i personally could easy get around with i found this cam. I was a bit confused because there are a few versions, the 1, 2 and 3. The 1 was too old, the two is essentially the same as the 3 minus the 600 zoom (the 2 only has 200 which is plenty for me). The 2 also scored pretty high in a few other areas where the 3 didnt do so well. The video quality and picture quality are awesome. I do alot of VLOGGING so i wanting something that could record great and take great pics. I paired it up with Manfrotto mini tripod and a Rode shotgun mic and im in heaven!

      The Sony RX10 can do pro work!!!

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I entered the Sony mirrorless line up of cameras with the nex 6... Upgraded from the kit lens to a 35mm 1.8 prime... With does wonders for shallow D. O. F. and low light video... Especially with an aps-c sensor!!! But when I heard about the RX 10 I needed a lil more than just review s to go on... So I went into a best buy and actually got to hold one... That was the moment my opinion changed... When I got to see the type of video that the direct pixel read out could provide with 50mbps video and very little to no moire or aliasing I was sold... The best part is that you have complete manual control... The lens is everything they say it is... The only downside is that low light footage can get grainy in very dark areas... But this unit is capable of producing professional results...

      I just bought my dony rx20 and I love it, I'm coming from the canon rebel T3i and it was getting expensive to buy all the lenses I wanted, I travel and love to take pics but I don't like to travel with a bag full of equipment. This sony rx10 is all I need now and the video is awesome. I wish the LCD screen swiveled from dude to side but other than that I really like it. Aldo battery life is so so. I would recommend buying an external charger and additional battery

      Amazing camera, but newer model available

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      This is a very high quality super zoom bridge camera. This is an amazing camera with tons of features built around a superb zeis lens (constant f2.8 across zoom) and a 1" sensor. This camera has great ergonomics and now the a newer model has been released it has a great price too! The newer model has some extra features that may or may not be worth the price premium. Still image quality is very similar between the two models making this model still relevant!

      Excellent Grab and Go Camera

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      I bought this primarily to supplement my other cameras when I Wanted something to grab and go with great low-light and video support and when carrying one of my 6-7 other DSLRs just wasn't a viable option. It has exceeded my expectations. For the price point, it simply cannot be beaten. The Zeiss glass is top drawer. Highly recommended.
