The future of the point-and-shoot is the superzoom

theverge.com
3 March 2014
  • Summary: Point-and-shoots are dying because all they offer is better quality — and it seems no one cares about better quality when they’re just cropping things to a square and putting them on Instagram. But superzooms are a growing market because they offer what neither phones nor compact cameras posses: versatility. The RX10 works whether you’re on the field or in the nosebleeds, whether you’re on a sunny beach or a dark club. It’s a camera for everyone, for every situation.
  • 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

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 review

Digitaltrends
12 February 2014
  • Conclusion: We began this review with the conundrum every DSLR owner confronts – dealing with myriad lenses and shoulder-breaking gear bags – and whether there is a high-quality, portable solution for these issues. The Sony Cyber-shot RX10 is it and it deserves our Editor’s Choice designation. Still and video quality is excellent while the Zeiss glass is outstanding.
  • Pros: Excellent stills and videos, Great f/2.8 constant aperture, High-quality EVF
  • Cons: Expensive, heavy (for a bridge camera), No touchscreen LCD, Would love a longer zoom

  • 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

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 camera review

Macworld UK
8 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Resembling a cross between a digital SLR and a Howitzer cannon, the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 looks like a serious contender for serious photography from the off. It would have to be with a suggested retail price circa £1,000. Previous RX series cameras, such as the RX100 and RX1, have been decidedly compact in their styling.
  • Pros: Solid feel magnesium alloy build apes a semi pro DSLR, tilting LCD and eye level viewfinder just above offer a wide range of creative framing opportunities, zoom lens drags the faraway closer to enable more shots from a standing position too, image quality a knock out for photos and video
  • Cons: High asking price would seem to limit appeal to dedicated enthusiasts, a big lens means a bulky body

Sony RX10

Bild och Ljud
31 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Sony RX10 är inte helt befriad från brus, men det tänker man nästan inte på. Kamerans optiska prestanda i kombination med marknadens just nu bästa 1-tums bildsensor ger den högsta bildkvaliteten vi har sett hittills. I någon superzoomkamera. Men kameran är stor och tung, och med elektronisk zoom tar det tid att zooma från 24 till 200 mm. Vi ska inte heller sticka under stol med att 11 000 kronor är ett styvt pris, även för en så välutrustad kamera.

Recensione: Sony RX10, la superbridge che mancava

saggiamente.com
23 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Le bridge rappresentano un terreno di sfida difficile per i produttori, fotocamere a metà tra le compatte e reflex che cercano di ammaliare chi desidera esplorare il mondo fotografico senza approcciare alle ottiche intercambiabili. Quando le DSLR costavano care e non esistevano le mirrorless era un segmento florido, ma attualmente fatica a fare numeri per via di una concorrenza sempre più spietata di altri prodotti sempre più a buon mercato.
  • Pros: Buona gamma dinamica (ottima per la dimensione del sensore), Resa ad alte sensibilità più che valida fino a 1600/3200ISO, Obiettivo inciso, con escursione importante (24-200) ed apertura costante f/2.8, Ottima efficacia della stabilizzazione SteadyShot, Buona ergonomia, Ricca di controlli fisici e personalizzazioni, Mirino integrato di buona qualità, Display LCD secondario superiore (retroilluminato), Ghiera fisica per apertura e zoom/maf, Flash con controllo unità wi...
  • Cons: Sistema di ricarica scomodo: richiede il collegamento della fotocamera, Ghiera dell'apertura quasi completamente liscia e scomoda, Ghiera zoom con feedback troppo elettronico, Leggera tendenza a sovraesporre, Wi-Fi limitato nel controllo remoto

  • Summary: Sony RX10 ikke fri for billedstøj, men det meste af tiden tænker man ikke på det. For kameraets optiske ydelse kombineret med den bedste 1 tommes billedchip på markedet lige nu giver dig den bedste billedkvalitet, vi hidtil har set. I noget superzoomkamera. Det samme gælder videokvaliteten. Men kameraet er stort og tungt, og med elektronisk zoom tager det tid at zoome fra 24 til 200 mm.
  • Pros: Sony RX10 er det rette valg for dem, der gerne vil have meget zoom, god brugervenlighed og høj billedkvalitet i ét og samme solide kamera. Superb optisk kvalitet og relativt stor billedsensor giver den bedste billedkvalitet, vi har set i et superzoomkamera. Videokvaliteten er knivskarp, og den elektroniske søger stor og skarp. Et kamera, der dækker de fleste behov.
  • Cons: Man vil se billedstøj trods smart lokal støjreduktion i kameraet, og farvegengivelsen er ikke 100 procent neutral. Størrelse og vægt kan være en deal-breaker for mange, og prisen er høj.
