First Look: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 hands-on

3:29 /

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100's compact, elegant design; generally excellent photo quality; bright, fast lens; and speedy performance make a great package if you don't mind spending a little more money.

Fast performer equipped with a relatively large sensor bright fast -- And wrapped in small sleek body. Sony made a lot of intelligent decisions about design and feature trade -- when they created the cyber shot DSC -- one. Compared to many of its competitors -- relatively expensive but it really doesn't feel overpriced for what you get. Really real problem with the camera's design is the lack of -- grant. That combined with the slippery metal body means -- constantly in fear of dropping it. And forced to put -- next -- tightly which can get really tiring if he she -- -- a lot. Over and over again we've seen companies drop the -- to make the -- seem smaller shrine near something there. Only to add it back and subsequent generations. Knots. As other cameras that have one I like the control. Which you can program to operate for one default settings such as shutter speed and to use it in conjunction with the function button. Where you can program to access up to seven -- settings. In addition to the function button also reprogram the operation the left and right navigation keys on the back dial while the center button. And there's -- memory recall option on the mode dial to select from three custom settings box. Movie button on the back a -- hard pressed the location demands it because it's right next to the thumb rest -- you don't wanna hit it accidentally. The rest of the controls just enough travel to keep from being difficult to operate. -- my favorite things you can tell the flash for better results. While hasn't nicely rounded shooting feature -- hardly call expansive. The camera lacks a hot shoe viewfinder articulated LC today. And even if you're willing to trade those off for the more compact size. Also -- geotagging and wireless connectivity. It does have features like soft skin -- auto portrait framing which kind of -- -- out of place and account for more advanced users. I'd rather have the ability to manually invoke macro mode which as with Sony's point -- you can only do automatically. For filter junkies RX 100 offers a handful -- -- -- very nice ones. But you have to scroll through every variation. -- treating cornucopia of 33 slots when they're really only thirteen filters and it seriously -- The camera produces very nice -- ISO sensitivity shots with the lovely -- now. One possible issue I encountered. Is that bright highlights on -- can get completely -- now. And I couldn't recover data from the raw files and Sony's image data converter software they might be there if you better software. The auto focus works well when shooting video and -- -- sufficiently quiet walls and audio comes through loud and clear and doesn't sound too compressed or ten. The -- also significantly faster than its competition for all -- continuous shooting. But frankly with viewfinder with models burst shooting is mostly appointment process anyway. Will be RX 100 is pricey -- imperfect it still darn good. It's got a compact elegant design generally excellent photo quality the bright house plans and speedy performance. All of which make it a great package. If you don't mind spending a little more money. I'm Lori Grunin and this is the Sony cyber shot DS ERX one.
