    Now that we've all posted photos of what this little pocket gem does right, here is one illustrating a weakness. This is at the widest zoom. Notice the severe distortion in the corners. It is especially evident in the upper corners.

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    In Tuscany I sometimes found it difficult to tell the difference between the "trompe l'oeil" and the "bleedin' obvious"

    1st two in Siena and 3rd in Lucca.

    Very dark inside Italian churches so high ASA for those.

    Great little pocketable camera for that sort of thing as inside most Italian churches there are 'No Photo no Film" signs so after each pic I put camera in jacket pocket.

    Hi, I presume you are talking about the gentleman in the top left corner. I don't consider that to be severe distortion, in fact I would not have noticed it had you not pointed it out. I don't think there is anything in the other 3 corners that will show distortion.

    I have always quite liked a bit of wide-angle distortion so perhaps I'm the wrong person to comment.

    Nevertheless that pic of yours is lovely quality (I wonder what sort of high-falutin' bigwiggery is going on and why are all the bigwigs hiding their hands ) and what a great little toy this camera is to carry and play with imho


    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Were these photos of paintings or did you use an artisitic filter built into the camers?

    Hi Howard,

    All those effects I get from using Nik Col Efex. As you probably know I like to try out a lot of the filters and I get a kick out of sliding sliders as far as they will go just to see what happens. Not everyone's cup of tea I know. In this case the people pic (2500ASA) I have used the 'Polaroid Transfer' filter and for some of the others I have used the 'Detail Extractor' filter. Once I have finished and downloaded the pic into Lightroom I am never entirely certain which filters I have used!!

    I fiddle with images for 10 mins or so until I get a look which I like.

    I like the Nik Siver Efex and Col Efex a lot and use them just about all the time, even if it is merely to add a border.

    I still enjoy the RX100 (it is such a tiny camera it is amazing really - I used to work with an old wooden 10 x 8 camera!!) especially higher ASA capabilities but of course as you know from your results your LX7 is just as good a lot of the time.

    Cheers, and I think it's about time we had another pic of Harry the Whippet

    Gandolfi.

    Hi

    how is the rx100 for snapshots of playing kids (no sports, no running) daylight and in the evening in low light?

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    Sorry. No kids around here.

    However I don't see why RX100 couldn't do this. Works good right up to 1600 ASA. While on holiday recently a Japanese couple asked me to take a pic of them with their little P & S camera and when I half pressed the shutter a little rectangle appeared surrounding each head so that was my 1st encounter ever with face recognition. So that is obviously a big help with kiddiepics.

    The LX7 would also be a good bet with greater depth of field.

    However RX100 is a good camera for taking pictures of Alps! This I think over Switzerland through a fairly dirty window. (Difficult to find a window cleaner at 38,000 feet.) Zoom at maximum minimises dirt. Processed with Silver Efex.

    2nd pic is enlargement of the bottom left hand quarter and is v. good detail, but I had been hoping to be able to see an off-piste skier somewhere.

    I recently purchased Nik Silver Efex and Just downloaded Color Efex but it is not yet working. I have alot to learn.

    Last week, I posted a B&W of Nova the Dalmation on the following thread: http://www.getdpi.com/forum/4-3rds-c...-yours-40.html . I took that photo with my Panasonic G5 45 f1.8.

    Yesterday I took some photos of two greyhounds again with my Panasonic G5 and will post them after I PP them and decide which ones to post.

    I enjoy the photos you post. Please keep up the good work.

    Howard

    Very nice shots - I particularly liked Nos. 4,6,7,& 8

    I've yet to really get to grips with my RX100 - UK weather has been pretty dreadful since I bought the RX100 three months ago...

    I carry my RX-100 everywhere, but frankly the shooting experience is not engaging, for me. I have a NEX 6 coming, with the Sigma 30/2.8 lens, and I am hopeful that it will provide more in this regard (the EVF). I like the RX-100 IQ, to be sure, but I do not enjoy shooting it.

    It's gradually improving for me as I continue to use it, but overall I tend to agree regarding the shooting experience.

    However, I'm still pretty "wowed" by the output from something this small.

    hi everyone. I am a new member and just bought myself a new RX100.
    can I ask which of the rather wonderful pictures (including but not only the ones above here) I am seeing in this thread have also been tweaked (colours, white balance etc), in post? I haven't been able to get anywhere close to the results I am seeing

    any clarification would be appreciated

    I'm afraid that I don't have any sensible suggestions for you, but I would say that I, too, find it almost impossible to get these vivid colours... out of ANY camera! However, I put this down to the fact that I'm in the UK, and the sun seems to have permanently deserted this country . We haven't had a summer worthy of the name for about six or seven years. The trouble is that trying make up for the poor light by boosting everything in PP rarely looks convincing.

    You didn't indicate your location, but I notice that you use the English spelling of "colour"; does this mean that you're in the UK too? If so, perhaps that's your problem...

    I have to admit that I didn't notice the last photo - that one certainly looks as though it was boosted in post. That said, a lot of the other images do look as though they were shot in some good light... and good light is what has been sadly lacking (in my part of the UK, at least) for a very long time [grumble over]. I believe that the SE has fared better in this respect?

    I guess I was humbly suggesting posters could if possible specify if the pics they post have been cropped and/or post-processed, as otherwise newbies like me are under the impression that some miracles are possible here
    SE is really dull, mate. here is 1 degree, and terrible flat light.

    I agree - excellent shooting/camera set-up/PP. Not sure which of these elements is most responsible for the quality of the shot... perhaps m_driscoll will chip in if/when he sees your questions, and divulge his technique. I'd like to learn something about it too! I've just noticed that Raw processing was done using RPP. That's a Mac application so I've never used it (I'm on Windows). I've seen plenty of positive comments about it, though.

    So the weather in the SE is no better than in the SW... flippin' dreary, isn't it?

    Hi, That's the Royal West of England Academy of Art in Bristol.

    There was an exhibition of Animals in Art, and the chickens are to publicise that.

    I call the statue a philosopher because the book he is holding is entitled "Discourses", and I have decided he looks like a young Kierkegaard!

    Inside I managed to snap a man pushing a wheelbarrow past a bronze willy! NSFW.

    Very nice B&Ws (and the preceding colour shots are good too). You're getting very good results from Silver Efex... I couldn't get on with it when I tried the time-limited trial version. I certainly wasn't getting such distinctive results as you're producing.

    BTW, where was the second shot taken?

    Ta, I enjoy silver efex a lot. I don't use the pre-sets but just make it up as I go along!

    Those two pics were shot in Frome.

    This one in Bath.

    I attempted this when I used the trial, but I guess I didn't try hard enough!

    Thanks - initially, I'd thought that I recognised the scene, but since I haven't been to Frome for many years, I very much doubt that I could have recognised it, after all.

    That's nice, too. You seem to have an endless supply of good shots...!
