A comparison to DSLR and smart phones
I'm a semi-professional photographer and I always jump on the chance to review cameras because I love them. This one is such a unique product that I'm really excited about it.

Do not buy for video in high quality
I trid to film in 4K and ZV-1 turned off every 5-7 min without even saving it. In 1080 you might have 10-12 min but I wouln't rely on it if you need a good quality video. For vlogging purposes in 720 maybe but still, better double check. Glad there is free return cause I bought 2 of them.

Cheaply made
Cheaply made and over priced. I returned this one and it took me calling Amazon 3 times and almost a month to get my money back.

Is there anything that's better for video than an iPhone but in similarly small size/form factor?
Consider the Sony ZV-1. Very portable, great video, and under $700.
Is this modified RX100 a YouTuber’s dream pocket camera?
In 2020, I hope I don’t have to convince you that vlogging is not a frivolous activity, but a real genre of video that can range from hobby to full-time job to full-blown media company. That is why it’s so strange to me that so few cameras are custom-designed for it.
Sony’s ZV-1 is an attempt to fil...
