Best compact camera on the planet. Worth it?
First off to clear some things up. No, your phone is not better. Sure in good light and still subjects a phone can take images that look just as good for the most part. In very dark shots you could argue the Pixel 3 night mode will do a much better job (again if subject is completely still) However,...
The 8 Best Cameras - Spring 2022
The camera also lacks an optical viewfinder, though it does have a pop-up EVF, and it's incredibly compact. Get the Fujifilm if you prioritize image quality and prefer to shoot through a viewfinder, but if you want more zoom range in a compact camera, go with the Sony.
Recommend me a point and shoot camera?
I got rid of my DSLR (Canon SL1) and a bunch of lenses, because for travel, it's a hassle, both for weight and care. "Real photographers" might argue for a DSLR, but I guess I just want to take nice pictures with the option for a wide aperture. The RX100 also has a "smile shutter" setting: smile and it takes a picture, and it can do so repeatedly. Great for solo and family shots when you want to be in the picture.
Sony’s latest RX100 adds some long requested features, but it still isn’t the perfect vlogging rig
So, what can we conclude here? The RX100 Mark VII, like its predecessors, is without a doubt an incredibly powerful camera for its size. But its price is also incredibly high, which makes it a bit of a niche item, and people within that niche tend to be pretty discerning. It does indeed shoot very nice video and decent photos, and it’s almost certainly the best point-and-shoot camera you can buy today
Sony RX100 VII First Look
Last but not least, the price. This is a $ 1200 camera. It may be one of the best family and travel cameras, we've ever seen with tons of capabilities, but that doesn't mean it's perfect and only you can decide if 1,200 bucks makes it worth it for you now
Best most powerful point and shoot pocket sized camera that will still be relevant for years to come
I’ve bought each of the previous RX100 series cameras up to the V and thought I’d stop there, with V being my favorite, especially with the ND filter and fast lens, F1.8 (both of which this new VII does not have:(. And I’ve sold each and everyone except the V. The great thing about the V as well as ...
Running with a camera? (not GoPro)
I ended up buying a Sony rx100 vii for my running adventures. It has a great zoom, weighs about a pound, and is small enough to fit in my front pouch of my running vest. I think it is a pretty good compromise when I want more than my phone camera.
