Product information

More than just a compact, the Sony RX100 changes what you thought was possible with a point-and-shoot camera. Sleek, modern looks hide an advanced, extra large sensor that gives you unparalleled image capture with richer colours and incredible depth. You can also remember those special moments in exceptional detail thanks to Full HD video recording at the touch of a button.

Highlights:

  • Four times larger than standard sensor - the 1.0-type Exmore CMOS packs the details in. 20.2 effective megapixels give more vibrant shots along with exceptionally low noise level - even in low light situations.
  • The bright F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens has a wide aperture that lets in more light. It's also the key to limitless creative effects, with your subject in sharp focus against a smoothly-blurred background.
  • A 3.6x optical zoom gives you more intimate portraits and detailed shots. Clear Image Zoom pushes this to 7.2 with even more detail and no sacrifice of pixel count
  • You can capture crisp 1080p movies with the touch of a button in the popular AVCHD format. The HDMI-out slot on the camera even makes it easy to share everything on your HD TV.
  • SteadyShot Active Mode cuts down on shaky camera movement when shooting video, even while walking or zooming. It even reduces blur when shooting stills.
  • Enjoy the freedom to fine-tune your image with full control over automatic and manual exposure modes. Surrounding the lens, a smooth control ring allows effortless fingertip adjustment of exposure, zoom, picture effect and other functions.
  • Take control of your photos and videos and bring them to life through your PlayStation 3 with PlayMemories Studio. You can add sound effects, or edit your videos to make the perfect home movie quickly and easily.
  • In-camera retouching lets you add a professional sheen to any photo with red eye removal, unsharp mask and more - all without a computer.
  • A large and bright 3-inch LCD screen makes navigating your photos, reviewing shots and choosing settings a snap.
  • The lightweight aluminium casing not only cuts down on carry weight; it looks good too!

Great image quality 'You can buy this one, the Mark 1, for under £400 or the Mark 2 for £700. They both take more or less identical photos in terms of image quality. The extra £300 gets you a flip screen, wifi etc. but the basic photography is the same. Most reviews say this camera is the best in its price range and is the only one with a 1" sensor - meaning it should be capable of giving you the best quality images. The Zeiss-branded lens is also very good. I'm certainly impressed with the image quality (I'm very fussy on sharpness and colour!) and also the facilities. I got some amazing night photos using "SuperIntelligent Auto" where it takes several shots and stitches the sharpest bits together (or something like that!). They could have been taken on a tripod, they were that good. In daylight the photos are also excellent quality - way better than most compacts. The menu system on this camera is very similar to my Sony A700 DSLR and therefore I find it quite intuitive. The ergonomics are nothing much to write home about although the compact size probably means it's impossible to come closer to DSLR ergonomics. I just find it a bit fiddly! One of the add-on rubber grips would also make the camera nicer to hold. My wife has a Panasonic LX5 (current model=LX7) and it takes great photos too. The LX7 is a bit cheaper than this Sony and has a f1.4 lens versus the f1.8 on the Sony. However, I have always felt that the LX5 photos look over-sharpened and saturated as they come off the camera whereas the Sony images come off looking natural, but sharp and accurately saturated. Bottom line - I'm delighted with the image quality from this camera. It comes very close to my Sony A700 DSLR with good quality glass. At under £400 for the mark 1 it's a bargain and I'd definitely recommend it strongly! 16 January 2014
Creative Compact Camera Over our busy Christmas period this compact camera has been one of the most popular, with its excellent image quality, screen resolution and its easy of use; great automatic settings for beginners and manual settings for the enthusiast. Sometimes high end cameras have so many buttons and functions it can be confusing for my customers who are looking to upgrade, the on screen information on the RX100 makes the transition easier. 23 January 2013
