Summary: This is a wonderful camera, easy to use, loaded with all the features I was looking for, and as long as I do my part correctly, it takes amazing photographs. I love the pop up view finder. This is a perfect travel camera.
Summary: I wanted a small camera that I could take with me to take better pics than my iPhone. I find I use my iPhone more because it's always with me and the screen is nice and large, and it's a touch screen so focusing is easier. These high end compacts seem to be the new way to go.
Excerpt: I bought the camera to take with me on an recent eight day trip to Dubai. Needless to say, there was very hot weather there. My daughter and son-in-law went with me. Key was the ability to zoom in on the substantial Dubai skyline for crisp architectural shots from long distance.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact

Summary: There are far better people than I to break down the technical details of this nifty little camera. I am the type of person who has been using my iPhone 5S to take photos, and while I can do OK with that, it was time to get a small easy to carry option for going to my daughter's gymnastics meets.
Summary: Sony continues the RX100 line with the Mark IV. I've had each one. They started out great and have gotten better with each upgrade. This camera is the best "point and shoot" of them all. It's very small, but with it's relatively large sensor, the picture quality is nothing short of spectacular.
Excerpt: Great product for the price. I was able to use this and capture awesome pictures of Great Whites off of Isla Guadalupe. Don't spend hundreds on another product. You do have the ability to use all of the camera controls including the flash.
Pros: All Controls Flash, Easy To Use, Functional, Good Depth Range, Water-tight Seals
