Excerpt: The RX10 works great for me for handheld ENG, documentary filmmaking as well as filming action sports on a tripod (I've only used this camera in video mode.) For handheld I use a cheap flash mount bracket with a Manfrotto quick release adapter (so that I can quickly move from hand held bracket to tripod). I have the Sony XLR-K1M adapter attached to one of the cold shoe ports on the bracket.
Pros: 1080 60p, Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Lightweight, Small / Compact, Zebras
Excerpt: I work with Nikon full frame & CMOS cameras when not using 2 1/4 film cameras. I was looking for a great TRAVEL camera that would be light weight with: a decent sized sensor, a viewfinder, a good zoom range with a fast lens (f2.8), work well at night or in dark interiors, and have an articulating screen. The RX10 answered all those demands & more. I carried it all day without feeling encumbered.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Iso Range, Large Clear LCD, Silent Shutter
Excerpt: Read many reviews before deciding to get this camera. Having an optical viewfinder and the Zeiss lens was a bonus. I have only had this camera for less than a week, but it is easy to use, takes great photos. I also wanted a pS that would take macro shots. So far so good, and the movies have turned out great too.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: The camera feels just right in terms of size and weight. Focusing is fast and the shutter is noticeably quieter which is a plus in in areas or situations requiring silence. Photos come out crisp, have good contrast and the colors are excellent. The zoom ring takes some getting used to and is a bit slow but shouldn't be a concern except with sports or action shots. The camera is a bit pricey but if you can get past that then it's quite a gadget.
Excerpt: I've had the RX10 for a few weeks now, plus I rented one for evaluation for a week. An amazingly capable camera. A few notes: I shoot exclusively in RAW so the JPEG quality does not affect me. The lens, or more accurately the lens/sensor combination, is as amazing as everybody says. After some time configuring the camera, I find it very i intuitive to use.
Summary: I have been a Sony DSLR User and have recently offloaded my A900 a couple of years ago. This Review is to bring out what is not clearly pointed out in the Reviews so far. I agree with most, if not all the Plus Points of the Good camera. What is not great is follows: 1. Very Poor Information on the Correct and Complete Features/Use of the Camera (Small Booklet, No CD). 2. No Software or RAW Converter (Get your own online). 3. No in Camera Editing. 4.
Excerpt: I researched cameras for about a year before deciding of the RX10. I have an older Nikon that I really liked, but wanted to get away from changing lenses, after taking a kayak trip with my son. I was constantly changing lenses trying to get some wildlife shots along with landscape shots. That's when I started looking at something that would accomplish both well. I also wanted to get something that would take good videos as well.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I'm into this lens for a 4.5 stars. The only problem with this camera, yes the only problem is it's write speed to card. Yes, I have a Sony 45mps writ to speed so it's not the card, but the camera. This time is about 1 .5 secs. when waiting to shoot next picture it's seems forever. The color rendition is just perfect to what you see with your eyes and sharp as a tack. Really wanted a longer zoom, but I knew what it's limitations were before I got the camera.
Summary: 1. Build quality is excellent 2. Viewfinder is excellent -- FAR brighter than expected 3. Camera feels good in my hands. Right hand grip is great for carrying and controls are where you expect everything to be. 4. Flash is a bit Rube Goldberg-esque. Need to be careful re-folding it. This looks like a potential weak spot. 5. Power zoom is fine (some reviews have said it's too slow). Seems fast enough to me! 6.
