A camera for all occasions

I was initially sceptical about picking a compact camera to replace my somewhat cumbersome DSLR whilst loosing some of the features from this type of camera. After a couple of weeks use the RX100 V5 is a revelation and has surpassed all my expectations. It may be compact on the outside but everything else is immense.

Sony DSC-RX100M3 - a critical assessment.

Sony DSC RX100 M3 compact camera I have recently obtained a M3 Sony RX100 camera to replace a Canon S120 camera which I had for a few years. The Sony seemed to be considerably more advanced and has been hailed by some reviewers as the almost perfect advanced compact camera. In my opinion, however, it could be developed considerably further. My main gripes about the M3 are firstly that its viewing screen is not adequate to properly view the high quality images and secondly that the relatively short zoom range of the lens can feel very limiting. No doubt the camera has a fine lens to provide ultra sharp images and that is desirable if one is prepared to do quite a lot of adjustments off-camera. Possible solutions to these problems is to make it possible to clip the camera onto the back of a tablet (22 x 14 cm say). This would give a screen size of about 308 sq cm as opposed to the 6 x 4 cm camera screen (24 sq cm) – a 12 fold difference. Put a few off-screen controls on the tablet as well such as zoom control and shutter release and the problem is solved. Regarding the plethora of controls on-camera I think that there are just too many. The main purpose of the camera should just be to capture as simply as possible all the information necessary to make it possible to manipulate various parameters later if necessary. Why complicate things out of sight on the camera when it is far easier to later make many of the adjustment on a computer? Perhaps there could be two sets of processing programmes: a relatively straight forward one for easy use and a more advanced one to make maximum use of the camera's capabilities. Then perhaps there could be additional on-camera features such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings bracketing. An automatic GPS tracker and self-setting clock would also be nice! Could be a bit lighter as well by using a marial such as titanium in its construction. T A Dyer, Cambridge, U K

A pocket-sized wonder

Having read extremely favourable online technical reviews of this camera, I reluctantly abandoned my usual Canon choice by going for the Sony product and have not been disappointed. It really is a piece of technical wizardry with particularly favourable features such as the fast lens and the pop-up electronic viewfinder. My only disappointment was the extremely limited usefulness of the Sony manual; having paid a substantial sum for the camera, I expected far more. However, I bought a digital book called 'A Photographer's Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100 III' by Alexander S White which I have found to be absolutely excellent; I strongly recommend it to anyone who is new to this camera. It's early days yet to judge the quality of the images from the camera but first impressions are very favourable and I'm expecting to get many years of service from this expensive piece of kit. I also would say that I made the right choice in going for the version III which is a lot cheaper than the latest version which seems to have few additional features, and none that I was interested in. I also bought the Sony carrying case which is an excellent fit but rather over-priced in my opinion.
