    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Ashwin, I agree with Mark....lovely set of very diverse images and #1 is my favorite too!

    Obviously though, the RX-1 suffers from the same IR sensitivity issue as the M8....Just look at all the magenta in that last shot...LOL!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Well, I don't know how much fun it was, I sent my RX-1 to Larado, TX, and Sony sent it back. They did reset the camera which I had to change back again. They did lose my black cloth bag that came with the camera.

    But here is a bit of RX-1 porn. This is my camera with optical finder and lens cap. There has been a lot of talk about price. The camera is $2,800 and you can get about $200 in reward points by getting a Sony credit card and ordering from a Sony dealer. B&H is a Sony dealer and will give you 2% rewards, which is about $55. My optical finder was $209 from B&H, not including the $55 dollars in points. My lens metal lens hood was $5.

    I am enjoying the camera very much. I went with the optical finder as there are light levels, at night or when using ND filters, where the rear screen has no image. The OVF comes in useful then. I have no problems using the rear screen and I find it refreshing in many cases.

    I have put AF on the C-button near the shutter release for focusing in manual focus mode. WB, ISO, and drive modes have been assigned to the dial. I use the gridded screen on the back and only have the image, the image with level, or the setting displayed on the monitor. I find the setting screen easy to setup the camera for those things not on the dial or when using the OVF. I really like the AEL button plus aperture ring to quickly shift the exposure and shutter speed while maintain the exposure. I really like the exposure compensation dial.

    The shutter release in nice and soft and quiet. While small, I find the camera easy to hold and I have big hands. And you can just take it anywhere.

    I am very pleased with this camera.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    The finder is a VC 28mm.

    The lens hood was inspired by this (Japanese site so the link looks a little odd):

    究極の‚ƒƒ‡‚ŸSONY RX1‚’ˆŠ‰‹Œ‰買っŸ: mono-logue

    That hood is made by Etsumi for the 16mm Nex lens and only available in Japan--but comes in black or silver. I took the specs for the hood and bought a 49-37mm step-down ring. So yes, the hood will take filters.

    The Chiquita lens cap comes from B&H with a label from a banana.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Visited the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Death Valley.
    Began shooting with my Nikon D800 on a tripod, but the wind was too strong so decided to put everything safely away in my backpack except for the Rx1.
    Kept it in my coat pocket and only took it out for a moment to take a photo here and there.
    All shots taken hand held about an hour or two after sunrise.
    Most at f/8 or f/11.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Joe, I think this is why the RX-1 is such a great second camera (or tenth if you are a more normal member).

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Joe, the dunes photos are really good - actually they some of the best photos I have seen of that location and time of day. Plus your story illustrates another great use of the RX1. I bought a small LowePro camera pouch that fits the RX1 and can be attached to a backpack shoulder strap. I had a similar setup when I had the Leica X1 and it was great to have it readily accessible to grab a quick photo while packing into a location without having to remove the pack and pull out the S2.

    I brought the RX1 and DP2 Merrill along for a one week trip with family. The Sigma for landscapes and the Sony for all the rest. Within its limits, the RX1 is an amazingly versatile tool and a lot of fun to shoot with.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Hi all, after tons of research and debating I took the plunge and ordered an RX1. After seeing the picture quality on this thread and some other sites I couldn't resist. I have an NEX 6 but it was just lacking something for me, I also use the RX100 which I love.

    I live in the UK so the camera is hideously expensive, but what camera offers such a stunning lens and sensor combo, and I didn't want the bulk of a DSLR. Anyway I hope to get a few images over the weekend depending on the weather. Any tips would be most welcome.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    I arrived at Devils Golf Course in Death Valley before sunrise and carefully stepped out about 50yards over sharp salt crystals. I had the place to myself and setup my D800 with the 14-24 and my Sony Rx1. Unfortunately, a workshop group of a dozen photographers drove up in several vehicles. A few members joined me and I continued shooting to the south away from the parking area. There was a little color in the sky but nothing exciting. However, when we looked to the north we noticed the sky and clouds beautifully lit. I grabbed the Sony on the little tripod and carefully walked laterally over the spiky crystals until I had a clearer view and quickly took an 11 shot panorama. Here it is.
    f/13 1/60sec iso 100.

    Congratulations Justin. Here are a couple of tips that may or may not work for you. For casual shooting or if lighting is rapidly changing I set the camera to manual mode and iso to auto. This gives me more control than aperture priority which tends to default to 1/80 sec. I also set the customizable C button (on top) to AF/MF toggle which allows me to lock focus without having to use the lever in the front of the camera. If your camera is not auto-focusing when you press the shutter it is because you are set to MF or the lens ring has been rotated to macro mode. Finally, try turning off the audio signal via the menu to eliminate the shutter sound which is on by default. Makes the camera impressively quiet. That's it for now. Enjoy.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Joe,

    Many thanks for your tips, first thing I did was turn off the sound. The others I will try out. I took the camera for it's first outing yesterday to St Pauls and the Thames, only took a few pictures as the lighting wasn't great and I was at work.

    Thanks. It's a very interesting city with so much to see, it's such a diverse city with a mixture of old and new, I would classify it more as a mixture of towns and villages all within a vicinity with their own character and charm.

    Hope fully over the next few weeks I'll get far more use from the RX1. Looking at both yours and other people's results it shows what it is capable of if the photographer has a good eye.

    Great photos retow! I'd love to see something like that in real life.
    Overall very good work in this thread. If only I could comment on all photos, but being 24 pages behind... I have to say though that Joe Marquez, those sand dune photos are stunning!

    Normally I post at FredMiranda, but then I remembered that I have an account here too , so here are a few photos that I have shot since December (I couldn't find any photos post rules, but I hope this size is OK):

    Did your EVF arrive yet? Interested in hearing your opinion about how it fits in with your shooting style compared to your other gear.

    Thanks Joe. Still on the road, or back home? Your shots of the sand dunes are awesome, especially the way you captured the light. Have to admit I'm a bit intimidated posting here - so many great sets by everyone.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    I just thought I would put this out here to the RX1 'community'.

    I was in contact with Jim Weise at Really Right Stuff today regarding an L-plate for the RX1 and he told me that they would like to make one but they need to borrow an RX1 from a California resident.

    I offered to spread the word and he said "Have them give us a call or email Really Right Stuff - and we’ll put them in touch with the engineers to coordinate that".

    He said if anyone able to do it would get a free L-plate but I would suggest you confirm that to be sure. (I have heard that they have done this in the past so I don't doubt what he said).

    PS - I just bought the camera today myself, loving it so far, can't wait to get out and use it tomorrow.

    Well said, Mark. Great work to all.

    Keith, I did get the EVF via Sony this past week. It makes the camera far more enjoyable to me for composition!

    Sorry, should have been a bit more clear. Know you've owned both the X-Pro 1 and also the X-E1, and am interested in what you think about how it compares to those cameras - brightness / lag / viewing size / any other positives/negatives.

    And congrats on your photo from this weekend.

    Ditto, he said same to me. While I don't live in CA, I told him it might take a while for someone to part company with this remarkable camera

    Stunning! (Particularly your FIRST set which I did not copy here.)
    Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
    My job is to capture them.

    Stunning photos Helena. It appears you live in a fairy tale land.
    Cool photos John, I really enjoy that first silhouette.
    More fun images from you Shashin.
    Back in Hawaii kuujinbo. Look forward to more fun photos from you.
    Still debating on the EVF Ashwin. Sounds like it works well for you.
    Neil, I needed an L-plate and picked up a small universal one for my Death Valley trip. However, I would love to see the RRS plate when it is released.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    I did email Carla at RRS that I am willing to part with my RX1, but so far no response, perhaps they already have someone in mind!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Thank you Peter and Joe! It's difficult to take bad photos in Norway. We moved here from Sweden in 2004 and are really happy (not just because of the landscape).

    John, great mood in the first two!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Afternoon all

    Well after countless returns to this thread plus reading every review written, I've today handed over the cash and purchased an RX1. I have high hopes of it being just what I need for the type of travel I do and hopefully it will replace the GF1 nicely.

    I have quite specific requirements as I spend a lot of time in dodgy places like Afghanistan and Iraq, I'd love to take my Alpa and Phase back but it just isn't practical to stop a convoy of armoured vehicles so I can set up the tripod! I used to carry a cheaper Canon kit, a 50D at the time but it often caused more harm than good and drew a lot of unnecessary attention. More recently, I've loved the handling of the GF1 and in general love the images I can grab as it is very discreet, the higher ISO performance leaves a lot to be desired though and I feel some of the views I see deserve to be captured in better quality.

    So, as a very discreet, high quality camera which won't draw a lot of attention I'm really hoping it will be a winner.

    Thanks to all who have posted their opinions and images, I think the measure of a good camera is that it makes you want to take images, I hope this turns out to be a great camera!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1

    Just got my RX1 a two days ago...went back last night. I was willing to compromise to have a FF camera in my pocket but there were too many things that bothered me about it. Enough said, decent camera, just not for me.

    Got one nice image from it yesterday.
