    Believe the hype, this is the best compact camera ever made. Near DSLR quality shots and I can take it anywhere.......... and the shutter speed, snap off shots as fast as your finger can work.

    Have a few years old to stand still!

    + Great picture quality for the price
    + Good starlight performance
    + Custom in many ways
    + Cruel Standards
    + Good battery life
    + The battery is charged in the camera (I like it! Just plug in the phone charger)
    + The flash can be tilted with index finger
    + Decent images even at ISO 3200 (better than motion blur!)
    + Good price when I bought it (3500 SEK)
    + HDR and panorama mode works great, I think
    + Finished and semi-manual modes
    + Large maximum aperture in wide end
    + Relatively large sensor

    - No physical flash button
    - Motorized zoom (like all compact cameras?)
    - A little tricky autofocus in low light without AF illuminator
    - The ring around the lens must swirled a lot for something to happen
    - F 4.9 in maximum zoomed in

    I bought the camera just when the model was released in 2012 and since then it has taken almost 10,000 photos, filmed many hours of movies and dragged it around in a Hama hard case on, among other things, fishing trips in rainy archipelagos, during all seasons.
    It still works impeccably despite ill-treatment and better images than the cameras that it shared with. A great product!
    I change it first when the same model in the future is playing in 4K / 50fps.

    Which camera for the size. Pictures are really good already in auto mode, is to experiment with manual functions and much fun going to get to.

    The amount of light is big and flash are rarely needed. High-contrast black-and-white mode is really good. Full manual settings can be made. Not evaluated video yet.

    So far, I miss just wifi plus menu system is a bit fiddly / ointuitivt. It is also somewhat slippery without case / shell.

    Have had this for about 2 years and are very satisfied. I am in no way a good photographer - I've never used a DSLR and before that I had a super compact camera (Sony DSC-T7) that took very boring pictures. I was thinking that I want something with better picture quality and a little more features but did not want to lug around a DSLR. According to many reviews I read, this cam be a good compromise, and it seems correct :) Sometimes I want to just point and click, then I put the camera on Auto, and then it will be mostly great (sooner except autofocus sometimes not quite do what I want ), sometimes I want to take a little more complicated pictures and then I set it in some of the manual positions and succeed reasonably accomplish what I want.

    Paid about 3700: - for what feels like a very good price. Mark 2 and Mark 3 then cost several hundred dollars more, and although they have nice extra features it did not feel justified.

    It may not max grade because some details:
    - The wheel where you select the function (A / P / M, etc.) is loose at times and change the function anyway
    - Autofocus sometimes choose consistently wrong focus, but it could be me doing something wrong

    Despite the extremely happy, camera down, I will definitely consider buying the same again (maybe newer model, land 2-3, etc., depending on the price).

    Bought a Sony DSC-RX100 at Media Markt for 3629: - for 2veckor ago.
    Was really pleased but the camera, the camera perform above my expectations in darkness and in daylight. camera is easy användlig for both amateurs and more advanced users. A big plus of the edge is that you can shoot in RAW format.

    Now you laugh a little control ring on the camera carved and felt like a screw when you spin on it (find this function will not förrns 1.5V after purchase). Checked on Youtube about Rx-100 all said control ring would spin easily one could use the camera with one hand.

    But the seller at Media Markt so why should you spin the control ring one full turn and I feel no difference barely got to change the camera. If you buy a compact camera for over 3000: - then you want welling to have a flawless camera.

    Have had RX100 since March this year and is overall very satisfied. I bought this instead of RX100II when it was much more expensive and I did not think I was that interested in most of the missions rings from the RX100.

    Is no photo expert but here are my reflections:

    + Overall squeaky photos, even ok in dim light
    + RAW format, which is a basic requirement at my choice to edit for free
    + Have well sort all the features of my Canon 60D SLR has, and panorama mode that works quite well.
    + Small and convenient

    - I think the camera is pretty slick, they could happily gummed or fluted whole or part to provide firmer grip. Have not dropped it, but I think about it when I pick it up, be careful.
    - Function wheel is sluggish and laggy properly which makes me completely avoid using it, had otherwise been smooth for rapidly changing ex. shutter speed or aperture.
    - Somewhat slow to start up and shut down, sometimes it can take two seconds after pressing the power button before anything happens. Sometimes a little frustrating at times if you want to quickly take a picture, but nothing I suffer from very often.

    Can generally recommend the camera for those who want a little better vacation photos than many budget-compact cameras.

    ** Until last July, Sony 250kr cashback on this camera https://sonycashback.com/ **

    I've had the camera for almost two weeks. Evaluating the still. Most of it is positive, so I'll just complain about things that are negative! Pictures are very nice and there are many options. But there are a lot of blur in edges that do not get better no matter bländarval. I think it is because the optics have much distortion at the edges (barrel distortion), this is corrected automatically by the camera in both RAW and JPG images, but it leads to blurring.

    To pull down the image resolution improves the noise level in the images that someone posted further down is not something I have seen. However, there is a setting in the "i +" mode which takes 6 photos in rapid succession and put them together into one image with extremely low noise, works quite well actually.

    The menus for picture settings is a bit cluttered and non-intuitive, the settings are different forms of presentation of the display. In manual mode, the movie took a while to find out how to set the aperture and shutter. All this means that you need to spend some time with the camera to learn the settings otherwise a stand and fiddle with the camera and golden oppurtunity for the photo is gone! Just intuitiveness is very important in a camera with many settings, after a while you should not have to think about where a particular setting is somewhere but it should almost go with muscle memory. Unfortunately, this has not really infinnet with RX100 grade. Maybe if I give it some more time.

    The grip is not quite good, but perhaps from the fact that the camera is actually quite small. You get a little surprised by the weight. Thinking of buying Sony's own rubber grip.

    One thing I like very much is that you can keep the flash down with your finger to point at the ceiling when taking flash photos. It will be much better and more natural pictures. This was one of köpargumenten for me.

    File formats in movie mode disturbs me greatly. You can choose MP4 1440x1080 25p or 1920x1080 50i/50p ACVHD. One can only get 25 fps in MP4 format and also does not in full HD, it wants 50 fps may choose ACVHD! ACVHD encoded at 24Mbit / s, ie, the files become 3MB/sekund big, you get very large files very quickly. The format is also a pain to deal with, there is for example no guarantee that your friends can see the movie if you just e-mailing them over. So will likely be necessary to re-encode all the movies on your computer - it takes time and is an extra step I want to avoid. So it's the plague or cholera on the film side, either MP4 format stuck in low frame rate, or ACVHD that takes place and is not particularly easy manageable (I have for example not yet managed to load any of the mts files in Adobe CS 5.5). Positive is that opportunities for full manual control and image stabilization in the camera is very good, especially in "Active mode" that "eats" a little of the image on the sides to attenuate jitter better.

    Sony insists on splitting the files depending on the format of the display mode. So you need to change a setting to see ACVHD files, MP4 files or JPG / RAW files the camera.

    Overall a very good camera, somewhat pricey. As the RX100II and III: an now been released so should this camera drop in price down to 3200th - or lower. When is it recommendable.

    Two things make this camera unique. It is small and the pictures are in many respects equivalent to what you can produce with an SLR with really good optics.

    RX100 may not be a camera with the best grip or easiest to use. Nor has the most features. However, it is, once you have learned to use the camera at its best, a great tool to get to the really nice photos. With raw and developing, for example, Lightroom, there is much room to correct and turn to the pictures.

    It is a camera with excellent optics, especially in the widest position, an incredibly good sensor and everything in a camera body that you can always carry with you.

    One could wish for a lot of features found in other similar cameras so it's not a perfect score, but not far from it.

    I have photographed / developed / playing with cameras since the 70s and have driven digitally since 2001. I have never been so pleasantly suprised that over this camera even though I read all the rave reviews here and elsewhere before I decided!

    It takes quite brilliant images and amazing videos. The only minus I was prepared for after reading other reviews - it was a little too "smooth" to keep in the beginning when I tried to hold it with one hand as with the old Panasonic DMC-TZ7 it replaced. When I realized that it preferably should be held with both hands instead you get a really good grip on it ... Especially if you turned off the flash and set the left index finger where it sits without being concerned that it pops up.

    The reason I changed was that I too rarely drags me camera system that I use most at home. It hurts a little every holiday knowing that the images become much better with the big camera than with my old TZ7 (which iofs what right OK in its time). Now, one can wonder what I will with system camera to anyway? With this you will see the pictures usually look like they were taken with a fatty SLR anyway :)

    That it has a little tiny flash really does nothing when you can just as well turn it off (especially if there is a second camera so you have other things to take on the few occasions a real flash required). With F 1.8 and really good quality at high ISO needed it barely. And so well it handles the controls in the crappy light!

    Another bonus is that all the settings feels like they are optimized for someone who understands how a camera works. A really angry with what one expects and nice "fake" objectification that dynamically chooses whether it controls shutter or aperture, depending on which mode is selected. With the "P" mode, you get a nice curved list of aperture / shutter resulting rotating against each other and are really clear. As the 70's with the needles on the more luxurious models.

    After looking at the photos and the first film from the son's breakfast in bed birthday I realized even my wife who gave it to me for my birthday two days before that it was worth the money. And she likes NOT expensive hardware in any form.

    Hard to see that you need a better camera for handheld use - but will certainly be well justified if 6-7 years anyway ...

    Undoubtedly the best / most affordable compact camera on the market.

    + Size
    + Image quality
    + F/1.8
    +1080 P Video

    - The battery must be charged in the camera
    - A little difficult to keep in / hal

    I also bought an external battery charger + spare battery from 24.se for approx. 200kr and works great!

    Conclusion: Perfect for those who are photo enthusiast and need a small camera that is as close to DSLR as you can get. Buy!

    Awesome camera with the ability to use the USB charger you already have your cell phone.
    Slipper separate cabling, thank goodness.

    Takes very good pictures indoors, pop-up flash can be angled toward the ceiling which gives far better picture quality than flash 'right on'.

    Lightweight and use, quick to find focus when compared to other compact cameras + / - same price range.

    RX100 is slightly bigger and slightly heavier than traditional compact cameras. This makes it less "pocket friendly" if you want a "light" camera.

    The camera lacks both wifi and toutchscreen. Blitz is type "pop out" but can not be controlled manually with some special buttons. Wheel around the lens can be twisted in many other "premium" cameras, but there is no "click" indicating the steps.

    It follows no separate charger and you must use type "mini-USB" for mobile phones. It may therefore be advisable to purchase a dedicated charger from ebay. The battery capacity seems no matter decent and better than many compact cameras.

    The menu system is generally easier to use than the NEX series, but Sony has yet hopeless choice to use functions from the NEX series as such. that one must choose far inside the menu system if they wish to "play back" pictures or video, it is thus not see both at once!

    The videos are the best I've seen so far with "blueray" standard 1080p50, optical stabilization and the automatic cutting of the videos on the edges so they look even more "stabilized out".

    One of the best compact cameras on the market I think. Compare with my SLR Nikon D40 image quality is virtually equivalent. My impressions below after several thousand images primarily based on direct comparison with this SLR. On the whole, I am very pleased that such a small camera can largely replace my SLR and my camcorder. I find it difficult to take sharp pictures (1:1 magnification) at shutter speeds that are no problems with an SLR (1/30-1/60 s) as you hold the camera in a different way, much shorter shutter speed required to pictures is completely sharp.

    Operation:
    * Like most compact cameras is handling slower than an SLR. An SLR can have hanging on the shoulder and is ready to take a picture of a second. Compact camera must fold the lens when attaching it as stealing several seconds to change settings also takes longer with many settings that change in menus instead of buttons
    * The grip is better than I thought but not so impressive.
    * Screen is good and works in bright sunlight (maximum strength, not auto)
    * Spins the wheel around the lens I use almost since it is not stepped, rear wheel, however, is good
    * Menus I think this is complicated
    * Camera does not feel sturdy and the buttons are pretty dumb. The impression is shallow.
    * The camera thinks for a moment when to zoom in captured image, annoying waiting

    Focusing:
    fast, equal or better than my D40. However, there are only continuous AF or manual focus in movie mode

    Color Rendering
    In most situations similar to my D40 but RX100 has some problems with strong pink flowers (they are purple instead) where D40 does not have the same problem.

    Exposure
    Good. Will not be fooled so easily.

    Dynamic Range
    Very similar to my SLR. Can download a lot both in högdagar and in the shadows.

    Lenses
    Uses the most wide-angle position which gives some perspective distortions and some distortion at the edge of the picture, but is the only state that gives Aperture 1.8. It should not be the same 3-d feeling like an SLR (short depth of field) give but I'm happy with the lens. Fun and useful to be able to take macro images in wide-angle mode. The minimum focusing distance at the telephoto position, however annoying bad. Just 7st aperture blades do not completely round bright spots, even in the smallest aperture.

    Resolution
    20MP gives huge files and fine detail reproduction. It suffices to look at the files 1:2 rather than 1:1. I convert the files to lossy DNG and evokes images in Lightroom third It gives about 10MB files instead of 30MB.

    Flash
    Not as confident as the D40 in auto but it goes in anyway to flash-offset and bounce flash, which works very well at short distances. The flash is obviously too weak to light up an entire room but it is incredibly smooth.

    HDR and DRO
    Works well in auto mode, I do use functions not so much.

    Video
    * Good picture quality, better than my SD HC-96 DV camera.
    * 50p gives the best reproduction of detail, but the difference with 50i is small by everyday use. The latter video is easier to discredit booms in eg iMovie.
    * Good dynamic range and DRO makes videos pleasant.
    * Bad to HDMI connector is under the camera
    * No zebra stripes
    * No live histogram in video mode
    * No AF activation with footprint (ie manual override autofocus)
    * No touch-focus

    I have now had this camera for over a month and this is my review :-).

    Incredibly good camera I have had some less compact cameras before, but this time I wanted a better camera. But despite this, I did not want a big bulky SLR that I know I will not be able to take with me. I am an amateur when it comes to photo and for me, this camera is perfect it has good auto program that enables you to have very fine card. And you drive the manual settings you can actually adjust how much anywhere and get incredibly nice cards, so even those who shoot a lot, I think this is a suitable camera.

    I like that it is quick to take cards which facilitates when to shoot a little boy of 11 months running around :-). Although filming is according to me real good the movies I've done both indoors and outdoors have been really good.

    I was initially a little skeptical that you charge the battery when it is in the camera, it is included so no external charger. But this appeared to me to be no problem, because if you do not use the flash so much when you strum cards can take at least 300 to 450 pictures on a charge including some watching the screen, so the battery life is really good. And that's even if you want to buy an external charger. Can also add that it's very rare to need to use the flash when it gets so good pictures without.

    After various kompaktkaeraer over the years, I bought a RX100 last year. Can not tell me nothing but happy - very happy. Have so far taken about 3000 pictures with it, and I am more and more impressed. The only thing I could wish for was a remote control for use with bulb function. Buy a polarizing filter so you get bright images in bright sunlight too.

    Looks camera is down to 3600 now, and it can certainly call a bargain!
    Does not provide full pot, it is perhaps a camera I can put in my pocket even better sometime in the future??

    Troubled good camera. I have repeatedly been asked by friends, people buy cameras still ... Why do not you use your iphone ... There is enormous difference in these photos, I can promise. Worth to develop, as other compact cameras rarely delivers. Colors, shallow depth of field, simple menus, full manual control, sultry video ... Happy with everything. Most satisfied that it always goes down in the pocket and therefore produces images almost every day (my dslr is mostly gathering dust). Can only recommend this camera.

    You get it with you and it delivers.

    I use the camera as a backup camera when I can not be bothered to lug a big SLR, or when one of those do not fit. Some pros and cons.

    + Very good image quality of the photos (because of its relatively large sensor).
    + Bright optics for wide angle, F1.8.
    + Fine focusing distance of 5cm makes simpler macro photo fun.
    + Good video capability with many manual settings and good nice video quality.
    + Burst Shooting Mode, relatively fast boot time.
    + Small size, fits nicely in your jacket pocket.
    + Very low shutter sound, can practically be heard only in quiet environments up close.
    + Smart features, especially the HDR function (which increases dynamic range by adding several images) and Multi Frame NR (totaling more rapid exposures and clearly reduces noise at higher ISO).

    - Expensive extra battery.
    - Not perfect grip if you have large hands.
    - A little less bright in zoom mode, f 4.9.

    Conclusion:

    A really compact camera that produces very high video and image quality. Fits the photography buffs who want something easy or quiet with them and still have high standards for manual control and results.

    + RAW option
    + Video The quality (1080p/50p), can shoot in almost total darkness (read test on digitalcamerainfo.com where RX100 performs as well as expensive camcorders in low light)

    + Setting options, you can do all that on a DSLR
    + USB charger, nice to just plug in the camera for charging
    + Burst, 10bilder/sekund, perfect for kids jumping, running and never stopped

    - The price, thought long before I struck.
    - Ergonomics, difficult to maintain, slippery

    I have photographed digitally since 2004 and my first digital camera was the Canon IXUS 400, then a couple of years, I use only Canon 5D Mark II + 24-70/2.8 L. Long have I been looking for a smaller and lighter camera that can take almost evenly then my Canon 5D often lying at home due. gravity and unwieldiness.

    Then I also shoot a lot, I have always wanted a small camera with good movie function. Now I think many of my wishes are fulfilled in the Sony CyberShot DSC-RX100.

    In daylight it's hard to tell the difference between the images from the RX100 and my 5D Mark II, they have the same high resolution and equally surprising detail resolution. Sure, the 5D is better but not much. In poor light reigns 5D with full frame sensor, but the RX100 hanging with good up to ISO 2000. After some raw treatment is high-ISO images clearly useful and nice.

    Filming with the RX100 is a dream compared to the 5D, just press a button and not have to worry about autofocus. With two young children it is not easy to videotape with manual focus and full-frame sensor, the depth becomes too small and often blur.

    I will have my RX100 as a complement to the 5D. My 5D are always on display in the home so I'll take it for everyday photos at home in a bad light, etc.. RX100 is perfect to take along on family outings, parties, etc. where other than photographing in focus.

    Normally I shoot with an SLR (Canon EOS 7D). On some occasions it will be too big to take with them. I have previously bought a pair of compact cameras (Panasoniic Lumix, Canon IXUS) as filler, but unfortunately I have always been unhappy with the picture quality. Now I have purchased a Sony RX 100th What a great camera! I do not understand how such a small camera can deliver such a quality image. You can shoot in both RAW and JPEG. HDR function is impressive. The brightness is 1.8, which means that I can take good cards in the evening in regular street lighting. Noise levels are low even at high ISO speeds - especially if you shoot in RAW and removes the noise in Photoshop. It is obvious that it has a much greater censorship than what is normal for a compact camera. I highly recommend this camera. I chose between this camera and the Canon G1X. Canon has bigger censor, but it is also a matter of much larger and heavier camera. In addition, the camera is very poor focusing distance and it also had trouble focusing quickly enough.

    Have an old Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 that was getting a little tired. Pondered sequel DMC-TZ30, but after reading the recession on dpreview.com I came upon second thoughts. In a country where it is still dark, I wanted a camera that took good pictures in low light conditions (without buying a 5D mark III). As it says in dpreview.com, this is a second camera for people who already own a DSLR. It costs as much as an EOS650D but it has a big difference. It can be taken with ease to take with them in their pocket.

    + Small
    + A bit shocked myself that the photos without a flash, so good color on the color balance is very good in difficult lighting environments.
    + Go in principle to take pictures in total darkness with it.
    + Like the HDR function (takes three images with different exposures and banging hop judgment)
    + Likes battery charged in camera, means I do not have to bring charger for the camera, but can use my regular cellphone charger to it.

    - Zoom'en is very short, but it is well the price you pay for having a bright lens.

    I changed the camera a few times the past two years. Have had including an LX5 and a Sony Nex-5n. This camera flogs them both cameras by far.

    RX100 is so small it fits in my jacket pocket and I have it with me wherever I go. It has fast autofocus, and also takes the picture quickly. It has all those settings you need and which one is used to from the SLR world. One will turn on how strong the flash should be. There is also a special ISO mode that takes multiple pictures at the lack of light, and then put them together into an image. I have hand kept the camera in a room lit by only a few lights, completely dark outside and got crisp cards with good colors.

    If the aperture down and use a tripod arises what can only be described as magic. Crazy sharp images!

    One must keep an eye on the high iso-values. You can actually get usable images up to 3200 but then it stands as valid. Otherwise, I would say that the limit is 1600.

    The camera has HDR and a lot of scene-setting. You can Customize the number of buttons, then set yourself what they will be used. I fipplar much with iso, white balance, dro-HDR, shooting mode, flash and focus point and all those features are so easy to access that it does not hesitate to use them.

    The camera may seem a bit "slippery" at first. There is a small rubber grip for your thumb on the back but it is completely smooth on the front side.

    There are ögglor for a neck strap on both sides of the camera so you can choose if you want a strap on one side or a strap around his neck, great!

    I does not bother me that the battery must be charged in the camera. I get about 250 pictures and some short video clips from the battery. Battery quickly! Not like my ex Nex-5n where the charge time was several hours.

    I am a right picky "photo geek" but I'm very happy with this camera. It delivers. It's actually a joy to use.

    Sony DSC-RX100 is the absolute best compact camera today. At least if you only look at the picture quality that the camera produces. The large camera sensor really does an excellent job of keeping the noise level down even if it screws up the ISO setting a little and even if you go above ISO 800 so retained many details that other cameras had basically smeared out into a mess.

    Anyone who wants to get better image quality with less noise from ISO 1600 can easily scale down the resolution from 20.1 megapixels for example 17, 13 or 10 megapixels and still get really good picture. Note that this is after all not an SLR and with good optics can also be the cheaper options from eg Nikon, Canon or Sony give greater opportunities. But that's not what Sony is trying to compete with here.

    Sony RX100 is designed to provide great image quality directly from a compact camera, a camera that is easier to take than an SLR. Just to add into the pocket or belt and where the camera system is not welcome may RX100: an easy to slip on. Enough talk, here are some points that show what I think about the camera after nearly 3000 images taken.

    + Provides the best image quality for its size class (compact camera)
    + Excellent noise reduction up to ISO 1600
    + Flash can be angled up to be bounced in the ceiling (softer light than direct on)
    + Build quality is top notch with good material
    + Carl Zeiss optics that provides sharp image (center of picture) also from f / 2
    + Aperture to f/1.8 at wide angle is awesome welcome in the class
    + Shutter lag is hardly notice
    + Autofocus is really good in well-lit environments

    - Something slippery body which makes it easy to lose
    - The flash is a bit silly so you can happily put my finger on it
    - The optics are sharp in the center but drops rapidly at the edges
    - The battery cover on the bottom is easy to open accidentally
    - The battery must be charged in the camera, which is completely indefensible bad
    - Does not turn on a filter (which in and of itself is not so serious anyway)
    - Manual focus is almost impossible as the "ring" must be spun sharply very

    . 300-350 photos on a battery approved
    . Handledsstrappen is acceptable but should have been any better
    . Aperture f/4.9 in telephoto mode is fine for this camera
    . At this writing bad with support for camera RAW files into image-editing software
    . Acceptable load for the flash, but no more than that
    . Panorama Mode is certainly good for a few enthusiasts and easy to use
    . The price is in writing acceptable for a compact camera of RX100: ans quality, but might as well have give you a decent SLR (which is still much larger).

    Absolutely brilliant!

    Never seen such a picture quality in a compact camera before. Full manual controls, or very well served automation applications.

    Steel low build quality, well-placed buttons and controls. Some have complained that the battery charges inside the camera, but I personally see it as an advantage since it can share charger with mobile. External charger can be purchased separately.

    If I have to complain about something that is manual focus a bit slow in movie mode.

    What camera!
    Dryers can not lug a SLR so this is as close as you will.
    Nowadays it has become very easy to "forget" D300 home. This is in your pocket instead.

    + ISO management in 1600 with no problems. 3200 work in many modes.
    + Awesome Quick AF
    + Dark situations fixed splendidly without flash.
    + Fun extra features like image effects. Panorama Shooting etc.

    - F4.9 in zoomed mode. But what does it do?

    Strong Buy.
