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. That absurdly flimsy hinged contraption is the first problem. The motorized zoom is great, and the manual focus option is as well, but it really needs a manual zoom ring/mode.
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. I would not recommend to anyone for the price, but for quality RAW image on Manual & auto best, esp on auto mode.Please drop down the price.
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. Also, the zoom is slow to respond and the bohek is OK but not to my liking. I owe a SONY RX1R and was looking for another SONY with similar controls to make shooting between the 2 cameras easy.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I concur with the many four to five star reviews already offered. Really, I'm quite impressed and pleased with this camera an many settings. Am I the only one, however, with a problem of the screen randomly going blank? While taking pictures the display can suddenly go blank for 1 to 5 seconds and then, after wiggling it around, the screen comes back. This happens with a fully charged battery.
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. It is very, very slow to record raw images, even with high end card. So rapid shooting is slow manually in raw.
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. I thought Nikon makes bad manuals, they appear very good to what Sony had for this camera. And there is no dvd and their online help had little to offer and I had to refer to other sony models online help to get some clues. Very frustrating!
Pros: Build, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
A decent enough compact superzoom but very overpriced.

Summary: The image quality is good for this type of camera, and it produces nice photos provided you don't look too closely. If you do look closely, i.e. at pixel level, you'll find the pictures are rather soft and noisy and somewhat distorted... but when all's said and done it's a small sensor camera with a superzoom lens, so they will be!
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. The features of the camera are great yes, so many options, but its the results that count. I found images on the soft side and without the full frame type pow! it is what it is, a nice point and shoot with a fast lens.
Summary: Ich habe bisher unter anderem langjährig mit folgenden Kameras fotografiert: Leica M4, Canon F1, Canon EOS 30D, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon SX50 HS. Mein erster Eindruck der RX10: Sehr gut in der Benutzung, sehr liebloses und schlecht übersetztes Kurzhandbuch (Zitat: "Anzeigen des Führers" ???), erstklassiger elektronischer Sucher, sehr gute Verarbeitung. Das Zeiss-Objektiv weckt gewisse Erwartungen. Leider bin ich ein Fan der 24 mm-Brennweite.
