    Quite right too (let's get back to the subject in hand) - and those are really lovely.
    Excellent
    Nice bokeh - everything just as it should be.

    you did, Jono, but you can whisper it one more time if you want to!

    Here's a random street shot behind my back. Uncropped.

    (did I say I liked this camera).

    T-mobile, I think, is the only company that offers a slightly discounted monthly service price if your phone is not subsidized. But of course, iphones aren't compatible with their bands. They're working on something to make themselve compatible though.

    My monthly is a quite reasonable $60 or so. I was paying $45 for monthly pre-paid with [email protected] data service when I was using my previous phone, so for $15 more I get nearly double the talk minutes and virtually unlimited data, which I feel is a fine trade-off.

    When I had a simpler phone, I carried the phone, an iPod Touch, and a camera. Nowadays, I can carry just the phone with or without a camera ... and get as a result oodles more functionality.

    Problems of the first world, eh? ;-)

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    Well, the point of the camera was to use it on a horse . . . . It works, although it's quite a challenge to get good photographs! None yet, but at least this is a proof of concept:



    Here are a couple of oddities:

    Oyster shell and sand (not sure why)

    Sorry for the shallow DOF - was too busy today to break out lights and shoot this properly.

    The RX compares favorably to all of the classics in terms of overall size. It is still a bit deep compared to the T3, GR1 and is about the same as the XA and surprisingly the Minilux (although the Lux distributes that depth longitudinally down the body like a brick - a certain funk song comes to mind). The GR1 still feels best in the pants pocket thanks to its svelt waistline.

    I've displaced the Oly XA from its snug little Nikon P&S leather case in favor of the RX which fits a bit more comfortably.

    Next up, a shoot out!

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    ..thank you for the niceties, Godfrey (lovely book), Monza (after the racetrack?), Jono (if you over expose your horsey pics do you get clip-clopped highlights?).

    Yesterday I went to the Olympic Games.
    Sailing at Weymouth.
    There was no wind, no racing, no medals, no nothing

    Still, lovely sunshine, always nice to see the sea.

    So this pic is titled 'Ebbing tide, no yachts, Olympic regatta, Weymouth 2012'

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    this camera looks so tempting...
    i have an X2 and as a second camera was thinking of getting either an OMD or a GX1...now i'm thinking maybe the RX100?
    How is the lens at the long end? is it sharp?
    Thanks!

    Hi Moonshine,

    Just shot this a minute ago in the Sunshine!
    This is max zoom, wide open, 1/500 sec, unretouched jpeg. straight out of camera.
    Looks ok to me.
    The above sea scape also max zoom @ f5.6.

    I shoot most of the time @0.7 underexposed.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    One shouldn't try and take pictures of dogs zooming around the garden at dusk with a little point and shoot . . . .

    Especially if it's Obi and Milo at top speed.

    so I thought I'd give it a try

    Thanks, yes it needs some straightening and maybe a B&W conversion will be ok as well.

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    ..still looking good, this little camera.

    Nothing special here, but the files look so lush, are a pleasure to work with,
    colours are great (AWB), such a joy to use, and as near to silent as makes no difference.

    These all 125 ASA. EV is nearly always -0.7. All jpegs merely fiddled in iPhoto. 1st two wide angle, others almost full tele. 5 is a 25% crop of 4 and the quality is still very good.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    ..and this isn't particularly noisy for a quick hand held point and shoot at the late evening sky today.

    3200 ASA, 1/10 @ f11.

    + a crop of same representing about 25% of the original.

    No noise reduction....

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    I haven't had a better P&S camera since I gave my Canon S90 to my daughter. Therefore I have been thinking about getting an RX100 to carry everywhere. After all, the picture you take with any camera you have with you is infinitely better than the one you miss by leaving the camera at home.

    Then I realized that I don't have a pocket for this pocket-sized camera! When I'm not carrying a bag, I usually only have room for my keys and wallet, sometimes even the cellphone is difficult to squeeze in somewhere. And when I am carrying a bag, I do have room for a bigger and more versatile camera.

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    ..ah, yes, the eternal dilemma of the man with no pockets..hope you sort it out soon

    I have lovely pockets sufficient for my needs, but I don't carry my camera in them. I have a small army surplus bag in which I usually have a collapsible umbrella, note-pad and biro, mobile phone, Guardian newspaper for the cryptic crossword, and a banana and an RX100.

    I just made a quick still life which took 2 minutes to set up, 1 minute to shoot and 2 minutes to process. If I'd spent a bit more time on this and tastefully arranged 3 or 4 lemon pips I could almost have called this an 'Irving Penn'

    Aren't the colours lovely? Best camera ever.

    And all to combat my existential ennui.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    HI Daniel
    excellent! Like you - I'm waiting for RAW support (Aperture in my case). But the jpgs aren't very dreadful, and seem to have plenty of scope (except for blown highlights of course).

    Here's three from the weekend:

    Thanks, David. yeah, I feel that the RX100 is my little "wow" camera. THe IQ really makes you say "Wow" when you get home and see what you have...since the LCD screen still makes images look a bit P&Sish...

    Re: Sony RX100

    I have this camera for 2 weeks now but regrrettably not enough time spending some quality moment with it, but it is areally nice feeling in ones hand. knowing what it can do, make it apart from the digital cam of its size come before it, reminds me of the Contax T3.
    At least now, it is most often in my small bag and I would think of making a quick snap shot with RX100 than using iPhone.

    ..well I must say that there won't be many times that I shall wish that instead of this poxy little 1" sensor I had had an old wooden camera, a 165mm Super Angulon, a few sheets of 10"x8" Ektachrome and a cable release!..

    Jono, you are really doing exellent with the RX100! Allow me to ask, have you owned a GRD IV? If so: any real life comments between those two, compared?

    Not so sure. But you cannot move an event to have better light. This way you may have here one chance in 10 years :-)

    My RX arrives tomorrow. Can't say I've been this enthused about a point and shoot...ever.

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    I have been watching this thread grow with some great shots!!! I am amazed at the IQ from this cam. So yesterday, while in Tainan, I now have a RX 100 too, as a companion to the M9 I am loving the ergonomics, and just how much fun it is to shoot with the camera!!!

    Shots from today in Tainan, some of the Taiwan National Ballet company





    There are so many cake shops all around Tainan city.

    That is very true. Enormous flexibility in holding the camera:

    - way down
    - Over the head
    - On top of objects
