u/Specken_zee_Doitch · 15 pointsr/photography

An RX100 and a Zipshot Mini, whole kit weighs 460 grams with 20MP 10fps burst while shooting RAW on a 1" sensor.

I sold my 5D classic and shoot with this exclusively now, it has completely changed my possibilities as I ALWAYS have this kit with me. I'll likely get a 6D of 5D mkIII for video in the next year though.

u/whytcolr · 10 pointsr/itookapicture

First off, congratulations OP!!!

According to the EXIF, it was taken with a Sony DSC-RX100.

I'm wondering if OP actually fiddled with the Program AE settings (half-press shutter and select settings), or just set it to P and clicked.

The composition is great, as is the lighting (which I'd guess is a lucky accident given my recent experience shooting in a hospital room). Without a good camera sensor, the image quality of this picture would've looked like noisy garbage, though. (Was noise reduction applied in Photoshop or is the Sony that noise-free at ISO800?)

u/UltimaGabe · 4 pointsr/Cameras

I'll give that a look! Just to be sure, is this one of the line you're talking about?

u/ItsMeEntropy · 4 pointsr/photography

A Pentax camera is a pretty good choice. They're not as popular as their Canon/Nikon counterparts, but they're always loaded with tons of features, especially for the price. The K70 is their newest midrange body (came out just 2 or 3 months ago) and the reviews have been decent so far.

As for the point and shoot you linked, I would say the G9x is one of the best point and shoots out there. I would certainly pick it over anything sub-$300 and I think it's well worth the extra $200. It's competition would be the Sony RX100, however for the same price I think the G9x is a bit of a better choice.

u/keanex · 3 pointsr/photography

Sony RX100 is an excellent compact from reviews.

u/Terminalspecialist · 3 pointsr/army

I got this camera and love it.


Just don't get a big bulky DSLR. A lot of point and shoots these days are shooting great quality photos with HD video. And nice and sleek to fit into a pocket. I also have a little admin pouch type thing I can wear on my kit to slip my camera and other things into so I lessen the risk of banging it on something.

u/thenshesays · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

at the time, I heard it was one of the best point and shoots you could get, the Sony RX100 I kind of love it. :)

u/kare_kano · 2 pointsr/AskPhotography

Yes, a Sony RX100 mark 1 used. Those with seller "Amazon Warehouse" are backed by Amazon's guarantee, you have a return period and everything. "Very good" and "like new" are usually in almost perfect condition.

u/Rydogalonian · 2 pointsr/videography

If you are wanting to vlog on it and record yourself, I would really look at that a6400. I have an a6300 and it is a great b camera for me on my gimbal. I have used it in the past for vlogging but you are really shooting blind since you cant check to see you are in frame or in focus. If you are on a budget I get it. Another good budget sony vlogging camera is the RX100. Those run about $400 on Amazon https://amzn.to/2SHo23E Hopefully this helps!

u/Jensraven · 2 pointsr/scuba

You can do a shit ton with a point-and-shoot and an Ikelite (or proprietary) case with a diffuser card, without bankrupting yourself.

Completely off the cuff, here's one option, a Sony RX100

and Sony Case (40m)

For all up around ~$700USD that will do 99% of the shooting that people do.

It shoots RAW for processing (requisite IMO)

It shoots with all kinds of flash adjustment

It shoots with all kinds of controls for exposure and aperture

If you want to get super fancy, you can even add a tray and a cheap video light on an arm to reduce backscatter issues and shoot with the light and not the onboard flash.

Personally I am a fan of Ikelite cases though so I'd search out a point and shoot that can shoot RAW and has the flexibility of a DSLR, a matching Ikelite case, and a sea&sea strobe. That would be a super fancy option.

I sometimes dive with an older Canon point and shoot that only shoots JPG and uses a diffuser card on an Ikelite case for doing portraits of divers/dive buddy groups. It's real small and light and didn't cost me more than $300 used from a fellow diver who just didn't use it anymore.

I've gone away from DSLR completely and now use a CILC (a6000) in an Ikelite case with a sea&sea strobe when I want to pretend I know what I'm doing.

You don't have to kill yourself or your relationships to go intermediate.

u/Heather_VT · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

I have a Sony RX100 (first generation one), and love it. The pictures are great considering it isn't a DSLR or mirrorless camera, and it is fairly compact which makes it perfect for hiking and traveling.

u/L0LPanda · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

At around $400USD I would say you have three options:
Sony RX100 MkI, a Go Pro or your phone.

The S7 has decent camera quality, and while the RX100 will be more durable, I would opt to save the money instead. Image quality from the RX100 might be a little better (you'll definitely have more control over the image).

The Go Pro could definitely work. Those things are built like tanks, my mate takes one hiking and records some nice time lapses and video. However, image quality is poor (probably worse than your phone) and the fisheye effect looks out of place for a hiking video.

IMO, save the money until you have enough to get the RX100 MkIII/IV which will be a noticeable upgrade from your phone.

Edit: Also, the S7 has expandable storage, throw a 32GB micro-SD card in there and that'll be you set for storage.

u/stupid_horse · 2 pointsr/Cameras

Don't know what your budget is, but a Sony RX100 and maybe a Ricoh GR would fit in your pocket.

u/doggexbay · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

The Sony RX100 has a great reputation as a budget video camera, but it's a point & shoot so it might not make the best option depending on what you want to teach. I think you can get a couple of Canon 60Ds on your budget if you want to teach camera-work specifics.

Do you want to teach cinematography or storytelling? For camera specifics, you might want to shop for more sophisticated cameras than the RX100. If you want to teach storytelling techniques, then you don't need a 60D for video; just about any smartphone will do. Depending on the smartphone, a few 60Ds may be cheaper. :)

u/bedlamunicorn · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I looked into cameras several years ago before we did some big vacations. I ended up getting a Sony Cybershot RX100. I love it. It can essentially be a point-and-shoot, or you can use it in manual mode if you want to step up your photography game. This camera went to Australia, Iceland, and Finland with us and we love the photos it took. If you want a step-up from your cell phone but don’t want to go as big/fancy as a DSLR, this one is a great compromise.

Edit: misread and saw you already have a regular camera. This one still does a good job with video! It might make sense to combine picture camera and video camera into one product, less to have to keep track of.

u/aeturnum · 2 pointsr/Cameras

I'd suggest checking out a sony RX-100 (Mk 1, not 2 or 3): amazon link. You can check ebay for lower prices as well. It's a compact all-around camera that has both landscape and macro modes. However, its 'macro' mode is not as close up as more serious 'macro' cameras (macro == close up photography). Video example of what the Mk2 can do, all of which the Mk1 can do

u/master0li · 2 pointsr/Beginning_Photography

Is your moon criteria because you want to be able to zoom really far or that you feel only decent cameras can do that? I ask because if you don't need a long reach you could put more money toward a better camera/lens that's shorter.

If you don't need long reach and want a small camera a used RX100 will give you great quality for stills and video for under $400. You mention travel so I think for walking around it's great. It's a fixed lens though so you can't get more out of it down the line.

If you're thinking of it more like an investment and you'll grow into it over time you'll probably want to go with an ILC (interchangeable lens camera). Mirrorless will be smaller DSLR will be bigger. Just know that you're buying into a whole ecosystem because because lenses aren't swapable between brands. There are adapters but generally you lose things like auto focus unless you pay big bucks for an adapter.

For DSLR a used Nikon D3300 or Canon T6 is under $400. For mirrorless a used Sony a5000. There's also the micro 4/3's mirrorless systems but someone else would have to chime in for recommendations as I have no experience w/ them.

I should note that all my specific recommendations don't have a ton of reach (can't get far subjects). But what you save on that gets you incredible quality if you take the time to learn. Also w/ the ILC cameras you could get a telephoto lens in the future. You could get a cheaper body and get a kit that has 2 lenses one of which is a telephoto - used Nikon D3100 Kit or used Canon T5 kit for right at $400. You have to swap lens to go long. If you really want that zoom for cheaper or smaller overall size probably look at choices in this article.

That said if you're going to stay on auto mode all the time my recommendations are probably not worth the price premium since you won't get the most out of it. Save some bucks and get a point and shoot that's easier to travel with and you're more likely to take out and use. I will say the quality gap between camera phones and point and shoots is pretty minimal these days. You probably need to spend $300-$400 for the significant jump in quality.

u/tofu28 · 2 pointsr/Throwers

I've heard many good things about the Sony RX100. It is compact, but many people swear by it. It's powerful for both professional looking video and stills. One of the only downsides is that is kinda pricey. Here's a review.

u/Fmeson · 2 pointsr/GoodValue

Ok, if all you want out of your camera is for it to take nice pictures on a vacation, be less than 600 USD and be portble, your best bet is a high quality compact camera like the rx100 (note there are 3 successors to it for more money of course):


Will a point and shoot take good quality pictures? Yes. Point and shoots will fall behind DSLRs image quality in 2 situations: low light and printing large images. If you want to shoot in the dark or print poster sized images, you will need to look elsewhere (and probably spend a lot more than $600). However, since you say a smart phone takes nice enough pictures, you will probably enjoy the better image quality of a nice point and shoot, but not miss the ability to print posters.

Do point and shoots fit your budget? yes, I picked one of the most expensive ones as an example. A S100 is even cheaper and still a great camera.

Are point and shoots portable? Yes. They can often fit in your pocket without discomfort (depending on your pocket size of course). That is more than I can say about a M43 camera. They are smaller than a DSLR, but not so small you can carryone around easily without a bag.

Based on what I have read from you, I would bet a point and shoot would serve your needs better than a M43 camera. However, if you intend on making photography into a serious hobby (i.e. willing to poor more money into it over time for better lenses and bodies) and want to take pictures beyond vacation photos, then a M43 camera might be for you.

What you have to understand is that M43 cameras and DSLRs are meant to be paired with expensive lenses. Buying a DSLR or M43 camera and not buying nice lenses is a bit like building a nice house on a shitty foundation. In a few years your nice house will start to crumble and while you spend all your money keeping it standing your neighbohr who spent more on his foundation can spend his money on a new pool.

So, ask yourself what you want out of the camera. Do you just want it to take better pictures than an iPhone? Get a point and shoot. Do you want to make photography into a serious hobby? Get a M43 camera and some starting lenses.

Here are some good starting lenses:


Can you see yourself buying 2-3 of those lenses in the next year?

u/building8media · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

If your don't wanna get a dslr and your just getting into Vlogging I would get a Sony RX100 - great camera, good price.


Check out Sara Dietchy's video below..its old but she talks about it and gives some good info. she's a pretty well known vlogger and she has been using it for a while (even tho i believe she recently switched)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6Rfton2P4E - starts talking about the camera around 8:30

Hope this helps!

u/frostickle · 1 pointr/photography

Yup, those are good cameras that I would definitely not mind owning.

What is your question exactly?
I would personally be going for something like the Panasonic TS5 if I were buying a compact camera. Because I'd want the ruggedness, GPS and WIFI capabilities of the camera.

...but this is because I already own a bigger and better camera for taking really nice photos.

The G1X or RX100 would take better photos than the Panasonic TS5.

Pick the Panasonic TS5 if you want something you can throw in your bag and forget about until needed, and swim with, and have GPS tagged photos which makes sorting a wonderful experience.

Pick the G1X if you want (slightly) better photos and a really functional camera (the viewfinder is neat, and the swivel screen is awesome).

Pick the RX100 and buy a "Gariz" case if you want to look really, really sexy when taking photos.

u/adamk1234 · 1 pointr/Cameras

I'll second /u/Bester2001 and say the S110 is a great camera. It looks like you could get it for $200 right now. If you want to upgrade a bit more, I would pick the Sony RX100 (link: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DSC-RX100-Sensor-Digital-Camera/dp/B00889ST2G/). It's more expensive ($500) but I think it's significantly nicer. It's still pocketable and small so no problems there. The great thing with this camera is you can get really great depth of field pictures. You know when you see pictures and the background is blurry? This camera can help you get some of those shots if you want. All in all, it's a great camera.

You can definitely keep either of these cameras for a few years and they're great for families.

u/sabado225 · 1 pointr/photography

Got my t3i DSLR a year ago, and learned the basics of photography (iso, aperture, shutter rate) with it. Loaded it with magic lantern. Bought it off keh for $300 and getting offer to sell it for $160

haven't relaly used it for the last 3 months or so. got a tripod etc, been losing weight and plan on taking some photos with it after my cut is done for dating profiles.

Three features I loved about the camera: well suported, after market parts, Magic Lantern, dual ISO and hdr video are so cool.

However the biggest downside is when I travel especially at national parks, rugged terrain having such a big ass heavy camera clipped to my backpack (peak design clip) just throws me off balance. it is both physically and mentally taxing

I wanted to sell this but keep my canon efs zoom lenses. I want to buy a mirrorless instead

What is a commensurate lighter mirrorless I can buy? How much would I have to budget to keep my canon lenses? <$450 used for the mirrorless that will take into consideration all these things, coming from the t3i


u/LeviPerson · 1 pointr/photography

Newbie here. Looking for a good camera I can also take when I travel. Should I get the Sony Alpha a5000 or Sony DSC-RX100M III?

I was originally oogaling the DSC-RX100/B but the M III has the flip-up display which I want. It's also +$300 more than the /B. This Black Friday Ad shows the /B on sale for $50 off, which is a pretty piss-poor sale. But it shows the Alpha a5000 for $100 off, which is more appealing. Should I grab the a5000 or is the /B or M III much better?

u/ASnugglyBear · 1 pointr/dragoncon

I went with a http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DSC-RX100-Sensor-Digital-Camera/dp/B00889ST2G

It's very small, does low light well, and can do pretty decent zoom. It's what I'm bringing to con

This thing fits in a pocket so easily.

Unfortunately, it plus a large memory card is going to way bust your budget. Then again, since getting it, I've taken it many places I'd not have done so beforehand.

I recommend this book on it if you do get one:


You might be able to find a used 5N and some cheap lenses of Ebay, but that's going to take some work:


and will be a bit of an issue to lug about.

Now, if this is really more of a hard budget than a "trying to save money on a hobby", something like a http://www.amazon.com/Pentax-X-5-silver-Digital-Stabilized/dp/B0091TC3OC will get you the zoom shots (it's not a DSLR, but looks like one), but I have no idea on any of the rest of your requirements.

Perhaps visit a camera store near you that stocks both, and check them out?

That said, read a book about shutter speeds, etc, so you learn how to eek out every little bit out of your camera. A little knowledge will make your camera considerably better than it's 'mode' settings may do for your condition. Practice before the con.

It's this year's Traveler photo contest's winner, and the photo was taken by a now 400 dollars RX100.

Edit: Well, it seems that they're only from the "Your Shot" contest :P

u/ja647 · 1 pointr/Cameras

DSLR: Nikon D3300.

Pocketable-smaller: Best Sony RX100 version you can afford. This package comes with two batteries. You will need at least two.

Advantage to a dslr is better pictures (in theory and mostly) disadvantage is size - you won't want to take it out to regular events.

u/scoobysnatcher · 1 pointr/Cameras

This is the one I mean, but in the "Compare To Similar Items" section, it looks like the are multiple, more expensive, iterations with the same DSC-RX100 model number. Is this one a good buy?

u/Hyzer__Soze · 1 pointr/photomarket

Is it this? Says that it's 1.41 thick. That's pretty close to the perfect option for me provided it's thin enough.

u/BlauweKaasstengel · 1 pointr/photography

Looking for a camera with great video and photography capabilities in low light while still being small and not too expensive. My question is: does anyone have any experience with insert one of the camera's listed below both with video and photography? I'm very interested in the Sony A6000 but I'm open for other suggestions.

Sony DSC-RX100 (Able to get it for € 385,00)

Sony Alpha a6000 (Able to get it for € 594.00 with lens)

Canon EOS M3 (Able to get it for € 459,00 with lens)

u/snuflswasmyslavename · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

I would suggest a high-quality compact camera like the RX100 line from Sony. The Mark III is $750. If you want to save money you can get the mark I for $450 (the III has a better lens). Don't get the mark II, it's an in-between model not worth the extra money.

Another outstanding camera is the Fuji X-T20 with 18-55mm kit lens for $999. The extra $250 over the RX100 M3 is worth for the excellent colors that come out of a Fuji (everybody is in love with them) and the ability to change lenses if you'll ever need to.

00You can also get the RX100 M1 for $250, RX100 M3 for $400, RX100 M6 for $900 and the X-T20 for $900 from Amazon Warehouse. They're open box items in very good condition, with Amazon's money back guarantee.

u/BigFuzzyArchon · 1 pointr/Cameras

Depends what your budget is

Sony DSC-RX100 is a great camera and pretty much considered the best non-interchangeable lens camera. This is the older version but still very similar to the newest.

Panasonic LX7K

Panasonic LF1

Nikon P340

these are all considered better cameras

u/HybridCamRev · 1 pointr/Filmmakers

Do you mean the decade+ old [Panasonic DVX100 camcorder] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BYJFYW/) and the [Sony RX100 point and shoot] (https://www.amazon.com/Sony-DSC-RX100-Sensor-Digital-Camera/dp/B00889ST2G)? These two cameras couldn't be more different (e.g., DV cassette recording vs SD cards, CCD sensor vs CMOS, 720p resolution vs 1080p, XLR mic inputs vs no mic input).

That said, I wouldn't buy either of these cameras for serious video or filmmaking in 2016.

u/YouWillHaveThat · 1 pointr/IAmA

Trust me. I used to carry the whole kit in my Camelbak (3 lenses, filters, tripod, ect.). This gives you 90% of the shots with 3% of the kit.

u/s95 · 1 pointr/travel

Get the Sony RX100 - amazing amazing point and shoot camera and it's tiny. Here's a sample image: http://i.imgur.com/urQYsUV.jpg

u/Logical_Phallusy · 1 pointr/photography

I have owned the Canon S90 (most recently replaced by S120), Sony RX100, and Ricoh GR. My personal favorite is the Ricoh GR due to its large sensor and superior all-around performance. However, my recommendation would go to the Sony RX100 since the Ricoh GR has a fixed lens (28mm equiv). If price is more of an issue, the Canon S110 is a great pocket camera and going for only $250 now, which is half the price of the RX100.

u/kitkatkingsize · 1 pointr/photography

Sony Alpha a6000 ($750) vs Sony DSC-RX100/B ($500) vs Olympus OM-D E-M10 ($550)?

I'm a total noob and looking to get my first decent camera. Mostly just need a camera for when I travel - nothing fancy.
In order of importance: Durability > Ease of use > Portability.

Amazon links: Sony-RX-100, Olympus OM-D E-M10 and Sony a6000

Is the price difference to the a6000 worth it?

u/enexene · 1 pointr/photography

I'm having trouble choosing the correct camera for me. I am a student who travels a lot and want something powerful, yet portable. My choices so far:

-Sony DSC RX100 MI

-Sony DSC HX300/B

-Sony alpha a5000

Which one should I get?
Thank you in advance!

u/talkincat · 1 pointr/gadgets

Given that you specifically asked for "cheap", I think the people recommending SLRs for you are probably out of your price range.

If you want a really good point-and-shoot that will take reasonably good low-light photos, I'd go with the Sony RX100:


If you're going to be doing a lot of outdoor photography that requires an extended zoom range, I'd go with one of these two, depending upon your schedule and your budget:
