      I bought this as a replacement for a lost (and later found, but kept the RX-100 anyway) Canon S95. I have a Canon 7D DSLR that I use for a lot of my shooting, but as they say, the best camera is the one you have with you, and I toted my S95 just about everywhere I went, so I definitely wanted a replacement when I lost it. I read reviews (as most people have) about how the RX100 was a game changer, and so it came down in the end to the S120, the RX100, and the RX100 II. You can read the specs for the differences between the rx100 and the II; wifi and the opposable screen were enough for me to go for the II. I will probably never use the hotshoe. First, picture quality: it is, as you can imagine, fantastic. I did a series of tests against other higher-quality point-and-shoots, and there is a definite difference. Now, is it worth the extra few hundred dollars? That's a decision only you can make, but the difference is there. That said, the size increase over Canon's offerings (S95 S110 S120 etc) is also noticeable. The S95 or S120 I could easily slip into the back pocket of my jeans while the RX100 II is noticeably bulkier. I've started carrying my point and shoots in a small lowepro case on my belt, but even there you can feel that it takes up more real estate than the Canon. Also, the Canon's zoom is obviously wider. This isn't such a big deal, but if you're looking to eke out that last few millimeters of zoom, you might want to take a closer look at the Canon. Finally, there are the ergonomics. I've had awhile to get used to the Sony, but I still like the Canon's ergonomics and find them more intuitive. The lens ring on the Sony doesn't have positive clicks as you rotate it, which is a bit annoying, and buttons on the back are smaller than those on the Canon. In summary, I am very happy with the Sony, but the daylight between it and the Canon is extraordinarily small, especially when using it as a causal point and shoot to take out on a night with friends, etc.

      Awesome qulaity if you're willing to pay the price

      My wife got this for me for my 50th Birthday. I never would have spent this amount of money for a point and shoot camera but I had been complaining about my old camera so she got this for me. That said once you get past the price this is a wonderful camera. I found it to be easy to learn. The controls are very intuitive, the settings also have popup instructions that tell you a bit about the setting you are on, (this can be disabled if this sort of thing annoys you). I haven't used this a lot but have taken it to a birthday party and outdoors for some puppy play dates. The indoor photos are very good, by far better than my old camera, Casio Exilm EX Z-70. There is no comparison of the video quality either. I was amazed on the quality of videos this took of the dogs playing. As a tip, if you take a lot of action photos, learn how to use the "S" mode and it will greatly improve the action photos you take. I was a bit worried about the battery life because I read a lot of complaints about this regarding the first version. But it looks like Sony got this straightened out with the M2 because I have taken about 100 photos and 15 minutes of video and have not had to recharge the battery yet. The NFC works really well with my Galaxy S4 so I can wirelessly copy my photos to my phone. You do need to install the Sony Play Memories App to do this though. One thing you can't do is to transfer AVCHD videos through wireless. I've read that doing this may damage the videos due to the compression used during transfer, I haven't tried MP4 format yet. One thing that I don't like about Play Memories is that I can't chose where to download the photos to on my phone. I want them to go to a certain folder on the SD Card but it automatically chooses a folder on the phone itself and I have not been able to change this.

      Camera is greart - Gift Card offer was not

      Let me say first I do love the camera - check on prices elsewhere also though. It takes some time getting used to holding, but after time that can be worked out. Controls are very convenient and really allow me to customize to what I am photographing. I am disappointed with Best Buy as I bought this camera after a lot of pricing and comparing. I was torn between two stores and manufacturers and the $50 gift card offer pushed me to this one at BB. I bought on line (almost 2 months ago now) and noticed that the $50 gift card did not show on the shipping invoice or the final billing. Contacted BB, and BB rep told me that the card would come with the camera, even though it did not appear on my online invoice. When it didn't I contacted BB again and was told that it appeared that the card did not get packaged with the camera , however, "as a one time courtesy" they would send me the card (that was offered in the on-line ad). I haven't received it to date. Just disappointed in the lack of holding to their offer, then the "one time courtesy" reference when I inquired. Guess that Elite Plus ranking doesn't really matter . I do like the camera, just shop around , a better price is out there.

      I've had many digital pocket cameras in the past and have never been satisfied with them, because I wanted to use them to "capture the moment", and the time they took to focus and shoot was so slow, that the moment was long gone by the time the picture was taken. Most of them had the "press shutter button halfway to focus" feature, and when you did, they would flash a light on and off rapidly and the focus would go in and out for a few seconds, annoying people and scaring away pets and wildlife. This camera is totally different. When you press the shutter button it shoots. Bam. No waiting. No press halfway to focus. It's exactly what I was looking for. I also chose to get the model that included WiFi, which was a few hundred more than the "basic", but for me it was worth it. I've only had the camera for a few weeks so I can't really comment on all the other features, there are a lot and look forward to learning about them.

      Great Action and Low Light Shots!

      Posted
      Pix4U

      Finally a small camera that will take great low light and action shots! I can be as simple or complex as you want. Automatic settings do very well so you don't have to fuss w/ settings if you are in a hurry or you can go completely manual. One advanced setting is a face recognition function. You register the face(s) and it prioritizes settings for that face (or faces) in a crowd. This season, I have been the team photographer for my daughter's travel soccer team. Using Action shot setting, I got great shots, no blurring! I have it set to continuously autofocus which I believe causes a slight shutter delay but I have learned to anticipate and compensate for this.I have also taken photos of the marching band at football games. More challenging because of combination of long distance, low light, and motion. If I can get close enough, I get good shots. The best camera is one you will carry and use. This fits my needs perfectly.

      I have only had this Camera for a short time, but I am very impressed with it. It has several "auto" shoot functions, and all the manual functions of a DSLR camera, and yet is compact enough to carry everywhere. I am a novice photographer, who is venturing into underwater photography....so nothing like 2 challenges at once....I have been trying out the various options for shooting, and have never had such nice clear shots. Shoot intelligent mode and do nothing more...perfect picture.....AP priority, shutter priority, memory recall, set for night scene, sport, fireworks.....simply everything you need to start shooting plus all the options for the experienced photographer....absolutely a perfect camera. And for Scuba Diver's, this camera (underwater housing not included) was rated #1 for compact camera 2015.

      Use as pocketable alternative to Canon 5DM3. Excellent images for size.Good hi-ISO and lo light performance. Overly complex menu system partially compensated by hi level of button programability. No useful instructions. Strongly suggest Gary Friedman e-book. Also Digital Photo Review website using forum for sony cybershot. Both sources offer practical suggestions. Once familiar with camera find images very impressive. Though I favor RAW was surprised how good JPG images are. Size great for pocket;weight borderline.I dont use the powered hotshoe accessories but some may find this helps justify the rather hi cost. I find I use the tilting viewscreen more than I expected.

      I bought this camera in December 2013 and had no idea of the fast and sharp pictures it would take. The auto focus is good, but you also have the ability to control all the setting through manual mode. I have travel now to 41 countries with it and it is a great camera that you can technically fit in your pocket. Although, it takes up most of a men’s pant pocket. I am now upgrading to the RX 100 V because of the 4K video recording capability and the flip up LCD screen. Also, I recommend buying a polarized filter lens.
