Sony’s baffling beauty posts high marks for a high price.

23 April 2014
  • Conclusion: First, let's just be clear: In terms of pure potential performance, there are better cameras for the money. Many of them. And you can rather easily get something like the Olympus OM-D E-M10 and a better (albeit prime) lens for less than $1,300. But either as a dedicated still camera or a hybrid solution, the RX10 provides an original blend of features that few other cameras can truly match, and it does it right out of the box.

Sony RX10 review: the everything camera

5 March 2014
  • Summary: It takes a lot to make me take off my headphones on the New York City subway. But one night, standing on the platform, I saw a crowd start to gather on the other side of the tracks. I pressed pause on my 945th listen of “ Gust of Wind ” and spent the next five minutes listening to a man in a winter coat sing Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come” in the loudest, most soulful voice I can imagine.
  • Pros: Versatile, sharp lens, Solid picture quality, even in low light, Incredibly easy to learn and operate
  • Cons: Expensive, Bulky, Enough autofocus problems to be worrisome

  • Summary: The RX10 is, most simply, a pimped-up bridge camera. One with a bigger sensor and brighter, higher quality lens than most models, and one that's packed with professional movie features that could see it adopted by video journalists and documentary film makers. In a body around the size of an entry-level DSLR kit, you're getting a 24-200mm equivalent zoom with a constant f2.8 focal ratio, excellent optical stabilisation, a large and detailed electronic viewfinder, tilting...
  • Pros: Very high quality 24-200mm equivalent zoom., Constant f2.8 aperture; good quality even wide open., Comfortable and tough weather-sealed body., Superb large and detailed electronic viewfinder., Fast continuous shooting: 10fps for 2.5 seconds., Powerful movie features with full manual control., Microphone & headphone jacks and clean HDMI output., Focus peaking, zebra patterns & built-in ND filter., Manual aperture ring switchable from clicks to smooth.
  • Cons: Slow zoom control, especially when filming., Laborious to manually set AF area., No touch-screen., Can’t control AF while filming., Disappointing Continuous AF., Basic smartphone remote control., No GPS tagging with Sony app., No interval timer., No slow motion video option., Most expensive bridge camera to date.

  • Summary: The Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 offers a great combination of still and video quality, thanks to its one-inch sensor and 24-200 F2.8 lens. Its focus is as much about video as stills, and the RX10 offers more controls in that respect than virtually any other camera. Its hefty price may put it out of reach for many enthusiasts, though.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, especially when shooting Raw, Top-notch video quality, Excellent and flexible 24-200mm equiv. F2.8 lens, Solid, weather-sealed body, Many tools for shooting video: focus peaking, zebra pattern, step-less aperture ring, Responsive AF in good light, Fast continuous shooting mode, Uncompressed 'clean' HDMI output, D-Range Optimizer feature helps give well-balanced JPEGs even in high contrast scenes, Numerous customizable buttons, Silent shutter a...
  • Cons: Pricey, JPEG images are over-sharpened and over-processed, Video bit rates not competitive with best digital cameras, Autofocus can be hesitant, especially in low light; AF improves when assist lamp is turned off, Camera 'locks up' while buffer is clearing after continuous shooting, Manual focus can be challenging due to variable speed focus ring, Limited remote control from smartphone, No external charger included for rapid charging or keeping a spare battery topped-up
