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 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.
I researched the heck out of nice cameras for travel and decided on the Sony DSC-RX10

Summary: WOW! All I can say is WOW. I researched the heck out of nice cameras for travel and decided on the Sony DSC-RX10. Just returning from Europe and the camera was a delight and the photos exceptional. My son-in-law with a SLR with interchangeable lenses and large camera bag was equally impressed.
Excerpt: I've been a long-time user of a well-known DSLR camera. I'm incredibly impressed with the equally high quality of the RX10 images and the versatility of the camera without having to haul around 20 pounds of additional glass.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I bought this because I was looking for something between the noisy 1/2.3 sensors of the megazooms and lugging my D800s with lens arround all day. Like my other Sony, (DSC HX-300) it takes really nice shots with a bright, fast lens.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD
