Excerpt: It is a solid camera and XAVC-S is a good codec. I really wanted this to be a dslr replacement, but it has a few flaws that I could not overcome. The compact camera form factor is fine and it is a sturdy build all around, except for the rear LCD.
Summary: It is a good camera, but pricey,in less than 3 months I have sent it out for repair,because it just stop with no LCD function and just drop dead.It is now back within my possession,hopefully never to encounter anymore problems.
Excerpt: This camera does take good photos. It is just not what I need. The focal length was not long enough and did not catch enough light for shooting on a cloudy day. I found shooting at the full focal length objects were not sharp enough.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: After further use of this product I am disappointed. The pluses are the design and build quality, the 2.8 lens and zoom range. In any auto mode it tends to shoot everything at 2.8 which limits creativity. The limited range of the tiltable screen in only a vertical range can be frustrating.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Complicated Controls, Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Image Quality, Short Battery Life
Summary: I liked it, but honestly it felt like the zoom was struggling to come in and out. Maybe it was just my copy. Who knows I opted to return mine for the sony rx100 mii. Same sensor. Sure you lose the constant f2.8 but honestly it doesn't bother me much. It was meant to be a spare on the fly camera.
Excerpt: I purchased a RX10 from a local camera store. After two weeks of trying to figure out the settings and setup, with going to the store three times to get clarification I was fed up. The store personnel knew very little about it.
Pros: Build, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I found this camera extremely well featured, no doubts there! However, due to the large lens barrel, I found the handling to be awkward. This in turn made the lack of intuitive controls all the more difficult because the weight of the camera is effectively being held in one hand whilst the...
Summary: I have tried 2 copies of this camera from separate stores, one being very reputable. Both cameras have had to go back because of poor stills quality. I just couldn't get sharp, or anywhere near sharp images, even when using fast shutter speeds and sometimes on a tripod.
Summary: i really dont get the over the top reviews for this camera. yes you get the great lens 24-200mm lens, but its not a $1000 lens as some people seem to gush. Its made for a 1 inch sensor, you cant compare it to what you would pay for a full frame lens.
