For today’s blog post I don’t want to do much more than share some recent images and rave about how impressed I am with the RX100 compact camera. I tend to forget this until I come to process some of the images that are lying around on my hard disk.
All the images you see in this post were captured hand held using the RX100. Despite the low light and slow shutter speeds the images are detailed, sharp and colourful. I even decided to print a few on A3+ paper (I increased the ppi resolution to 360 to avoid reducing the size of the images and to achieve the native resolution of my Epson printer). The prints look absolutely stunning. I’m going to start taking this camera out much more often given the results I see here.
I suppose I should also mention that Sony have now released the RX100 MkII. This isn’t however a replacement but will be on sale alongside the original RX100. The main difference from what I can see is the improved low light performance and the tilting screen. I haven’t yet seen the prices in the UK so am undecided if it is worth upgrading my existing (nearly new) camera. The tilting screen would come in handy for some of the low and close shots I take.
Enjoy your weekend.
