    Fuji X100s or Sony RX 100?

    I am planning a short trip on a tropical island.

    Just one small camera ( + iPhone ).

    Which one would you advise me to take; sea, sand, forest, sun..very big sun.

    Thanks for any suggestions provided.

    Regards.

    RX100 is smaller and has a more versatile lens. X100S is terrific if you can survive with just 35mm. Also X100S has the hybrid viewfinder.. So both have their benefits, you need to pick and choose.

    I would probably go with the RX100, but that's just me..

    I would take the RX100 too as I prefer the flexibility of zoom when travelling. Also while you are at it, why not get this under water housing for the RX100ii

    Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony Cybershot RX100 II / DSC-RX100M2

    Protect the camera from sand and sea by using the case.

    I would take the Fuji, but then, I don't like cameras without a viewfinder. Also, with a big, big sun, you need all the DR you can get. Fuji provides that.

    I assume that these are cameras that you already own. If not, the Fuji X20 is an interesting alternative.

    Juha, mazor, Jorgen.

    Thank you all for your input.

    I do have these two cams. And I really do not want to take both.

    The DR needed is what is bothering me. But then it is not a photography holiday.

    No sunbathing for me..not needed

    Just sit inside my room, watch the waves, maybe step down into the sea once in a while and let my wife acclimatize to sea level!!

    Thanks once again folks.

    Regards.

    p.s. mazor if I got the underwater housing, I would have to learn to swim too!!

    Take the Fuji X100.

    If you are in very bright light for taking pictures, it will be a nightmare with the RX100 without a real viewfinder.

    You can neither frame correctly in very sunny light, nor will you see where you have the exact focus point or the right moment i.e. the smile in a face.

    Or wait for the RX100 MKIII with the internal EVF
