The first of a compact using a 1-inch 21 megapixel sensor..
I purchased this as a replacement for a Sony DSC T-300 compact. What interested me in the product was the use of Zeiss lenses in them; some many years ago Zeiss manufactured 35mm film SLR cameras, which some of the best family photos were taken by my father 50 years ago with it. For a compact camera, the RX100 'stood out', as it not just delivered very high resolution pictures, using a series of optional adjustments, but also in its 'intelligent picture' mode. Capable of pictures reminiscent of a SLR several times the price..
Questions & Answers
Has anyone used this camera at a concert ? If so are the pictures high quality? Clear?
Sony RX100. Was the best low light performer when it was released several years ago. can take quality pictures of objects in motion and many other situations. But the flash has only 3 meters range and beyond that would be too dark for a quality shot. There are many new models now on the market. Hope this help.
I haven't tried it, but think a tripod would be helpful to keep image stability. Phones today are very much the trend, but a lot of concerts prohibit photography.The pictures would be high quality with the camera fitted to a tripod with a fully charged battery. For a compact camera, it offers very much room for experimentation...
