Defective from the start

  • Summary: The ready green light was always on even though the battery was dead, tried 2 other batteries and it did the same, so the product was defective.

Received OPEN BOX camera. no one replied from seller side

Dasha, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: This is not a camera review, but a bundle review. All we know that camera is great. This bundle is pretty fine, esp. products labeled Sony (photo bag, card and camera). Other items are pretty cheap, though they might be useful (like card reader or batteries). Just BEWARE when buying this from "Focus Camera" -- it came in a very very damaged shipping box! The box was so crumpled, that it even had a hole on one side, you can put a HAND through this hole!

RX100 lens jammed w/in 5 days

dash, B&H Photo
2 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Camera worked great for 5 days of moderate use until the lens froze in the extended position after taking an image in "sweep" panorama mode, rendering the camera inoperable. Found another report of a similar failure by googling "Sony RX100 lens jammed". Perahps a design or manufacturing defect. Too bad, as otherwise very happy with the camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact

Nice package, soft focus...

rob, B&H Photo
26 January 2013
  • Excerpt: there is a lot to like here, but in general i think this camera is not a good value. the big plus is the controls, which i think are really well thought out. and the mirrorless system makes the shutter speed nice and fast, so that the time between pictures is close to 0. but the focus is soft. this is really obvious in the underwater scenario (we use this camera in an ikelite housing). for the price, i would not get this camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality

The seven pictures I took with it looked great, however it would not record movies.

Marlin Smith Jr, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: I took 7 indoor pictures and they all looked great! When I tried to record a movie an error message came up saying that it could not record in the movie format selected, but the correct settings were missing from the menu!. I returned the camera the same day it arrived. I bought this in USA and live in California, but the camera movie formats were for 50i There were no menu options to set to 60i or 60p. The bottom label showed 60i.

  • Excerpt: Довелось мне протестировать этот фотоаппарат на прогулке. Обычно я снимаю на зеркалу Canon 400D с универсальным объективом от Sigma. Дали поснимать на этот фотоаппарат. Конечно когда у тебя ребенок в слинге, другого еще за руку периодически держать надо, то маленький фотик удобно, но... Но не понравился, так как часто искажает лица. Причем всегда по разному, то вширь, то ввысь.
  • Pros: Маленький, компактный, но таких много
  • Cons: Искажает

Plötzlich lautes Brummen und Vibrationen

pburst, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe die Kamera bei Amazon bestellt und ich erhielt sie am 25.02.2014. Positiv Die Bildqualität ist sehr gut, besonders bei schlechten Lichtverhältnissen. Was meine Ansprüche angeht kann ich daher die gängigen guten Test-Ergebnisse bestätigen. Negativ Nach etwas über zwei Monaten trat dann am 02.05.2014, nach etwa 800 Aufnahmen, urplötzlich von einer Aufnahme zur Nächsten (genau gesagt nach der erstmaligen Nutzung des Panorama-Modus am hellichten Tag) das Phänomen...
