Excerpt: I have mixed opinions on this one. I love all the video features, especially the XAVC-S firmware update codec, but the zoom is slow, battery life short, and photo quality lower than other cameras.
Excerpt: I am a freelance ENG reporter (Electronic News Gathering) and was looking to go light in the fight...RX 10 was looking very tasty!

Excerpt: Great travel camera! Took it to Alaska and got some amazing shots, such as the attached. A very versatile camera, and much lighter than a DSLR. The lens is superb, the sensor quite good. Weaknesses: Short battery life. Lens flares when shooting into sun. High ISO is quite noisy.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Excerpt: I am a semipro photographer. I shoot with a Canon 7D and 5DII. I use only "L" glass. My shoulders started to ache,so I started looking for a walk around alternative. this fit the bill in most cases. I do a lot of low light shooting in jazz clubs. with a flash it is almost comparable with my 7D.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I bought this for travel, not wanting to lug my heavy Nikon DX system aboard planes, trains and boats. I've only used it two weeks, and we have a big trip to Alaska coming up, so this review is tentative. But so far in casual use I find it quite admirable.
Excerpt: Trading in my trusted Nikon DSLR kits for something more practical, I was about to purchase the Panasonic Lumix DMC Fz1000, but when I handled it in the B&H store I was disappointed by the light, cheap, plasticky feel.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
