the rx100m3 is a great camera but is is nearly $800. the main reason i see cell phone pictures taking over point and shoot cameras is because most people already have a cell phone with a decent camera on it so they dont need to go spend $800 on another gadget to put in their pocket when they can use that money to go on trips and go more places. id rather take my cell phone to hawaii than buy a new camera and take pictures in my back yard, but thats just me.

A really good travel camera is the Sony rx100 III. You should be able to get it used in your price range. It's the ultimate pocket camera.

u/Tyler927 · 3 pointsr/MTB

I don't actually own this, but I'm trying to get a Sony RX100 for riding. It has really good reviews and is really small.

u/magical_midget · 3 pointsr/photography

Buy the sony RX100M III is great for low light, is easy to use, and the sony cameras get you really good results with out knowing any of the settings. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00K7O2DJU/

An other camera that would get the job done is the sony nex 5t, is bigger and has interchangeable lenses but again you can use it in auto mode and it would work well, it has also great low light performance http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00ENZRP38/

The sony nex 5t has better image quality and low light performance, is just bulkier.

The kit lens can definitely fit, but depends on the jacket pocket. Typically if you're carrying it on the go, you want some flexibility with your gear, I'd go with the kit lens.

If you're looking into just a compact camera though and don't plan on buying any more lenses. Look into the Sony RX100 Line. Compact powerful cameras with a zoomable zeiss lens. Will definitely fit into any pocket. It also has a selfie friendly flip screen :D I recommend anything between the 3rd and newest edition so you get that flip out screen. It takes great pictures too!

RX100 III (oldest model with flip screen)


RX100 VI (newest model)


u/kare_kano · 2 pointsr/photography

Look for a used Sony RX100. There are 6 generations of them, at various price points. Used, they go from a bit over $200 for the oldest one to around $1000 for the VI (6). Considering you were going for a D3400 (new), I assume your budget is around $350, which means you can definitely go for gen 2 (RX100 II) or even gen 3 (RX100 III). It's safe to get one that says "Amazon Warehouse" because they offer warranty and returns.

Why the RX100 instead of a DSLR or mirrorless? The sensor on the RX100 may be smaller than those (about 1/3rd of them) but quite a bit larger (4x) than the sensor on a smartphone or compact/bridge camera.

But most importantly, the RX100 is small enough to fit in a pocket. Even the smallest mirrorless you can possibly get will still be 2-3 times larger than the RX100, and a DSLR like D3400 is huge by comparison. This convenience means you are most likely to always have it on you, which is literally the first and foremost thing about photography.

WSIWT: Chromepak Trumans for the baby shower. I'll update with a picture later if possible.

AOTD: Probably any number of Vibergs from the sample sale. I had just gotten into better footwear and couldn't see why they were so great. Also, I had just picked up a pair of Aldens at full retail so I was tapped out shoe budget wise. Hopefully they don't do this upcoming sample sale in Japan and I can get one of you great fellows to proxy for me!

GD: Pretty sure I'm set to get the Sony DSC-RX100M III for my camera purchase. Anyone know of a better place/price for it? My limited Googling hasn't shown much better pricing and Amazon returns make me feel good.

u/Oreoloveboss · 2 pointsr/photography

If you want simple, get a Panasonic Lumix LX100 or a Sony RX100 III. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed and it will fit in your coat pocket.

Click this link to see Portrait photos taken with that Panasonic: https://www.flickr.com/search/?q=portrait&cm=panasonic%2Fdmc-lx100
Or click this to see Landscape shots: https://www.flickr.com/search/?q=landscape&cm=panasonic%2Fdmc-lx100

See the word landscape in the URL, change that to any other search term and it will show photos taken with that camera.

/u/paganifuzz - it really depends on your budget.

The [$798 Sony RX100 III] (http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DSC-RX100M-Cyber-shot-Digital-Camera/dp/B00K7O2DJU/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll1&tag=battleforthew-20) can record at up to 720/120p for results like this:

u/ProbablyPissed · 2 pointsr/pics

Buy this camera, f/8 and be there.

u/ChronicElectronic · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

Well if price isn't too much of an issue then go with the Sony RX100 mark 3. I have the mark 2 and it takes amazing pictures for a non-SLR.

u/prancerciseisthebest · 2 pointsr/AskPhotography

1st Gen - Amazing Photos and Video. $340 Used / $500 New

2nd Gen - APV + MultiShoe + Wifi and PlayMemories. $480 Used / $650 New

I apologize for the "what should I buy" question that gets asked all the time, but here we go.

I'm looking at the RX100 M3 and the A6000 with 6-50mm and 55-210mm lenses

I'm a 100% total beginner and I want a camera to capture basically everything (travel, family, outdoors).

From what I can see the RX100 is only better for portability, and I'm 100% okay with a bigger camera for better pictures, but are the two lenses included enough? I'm okay with potential buying one more, but I would like to keep it to the two.

I'm also open to other suggestions!

u/cfoster5 · 1 pointr/AskTechnology

Here is a link to Amazon for those that are curious in specs.

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?

wonderful cameras... very small... can put in your pocket.

I have the rx 100 iii and its a challenge for me to use... I have large hands and 64 year old eyes .... when I have my reading glasses I can see the settings a bit better.... but this is probably the best pocketable camera out there for that price range.

Assuming u are a lot younger than I am with good eyes... its a nice deal for you if you want to travel light


amazon warehouse has a whole bunch of em used for under 500


u/f0rtytw0 · 1 pointr/travel

They are using this camera for a lot of their shots


Basically if you want a good point and shoot you get one of the Sony rx100 models. The 1" sensor is much bigger than most other point and shoots.

u/TheToyBox · 1 pointr/PacificCrestTrail

I'll make it easy for you: You want a (used) Sony RX100 III.


The RX100 was the beginning of Sony's takeover of the entire camera market, from enthusiast level all the way up to full-frame pro cameras. They somehow now have a bigger market share than Nikon OR Canon. I don't know what possessed them to decide they wanted to be The Best Camera Company, but right now they're it, and the RX100 is one of the reasons.

In your shoes I'd go for the RX100 III, they switched from a 28mm-equivalent to a 24mm-equivalent on the wide end which is a non-trivial difference for taking landscape shots. It's $650 new but you can find a ton of used ones for $400ish.

Obviously the RX100 IV, V, and VI have upgraded features but I don't think any of them would be worth it for you on that tight of a budget.

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.
