About - Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10

The Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 is a 20-megapixel camera with 8.3x optical zoom and has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24mm-200mm. It has a 3-inch LCD (1,228,800 pixels) that swivels. It also includes an electronic viewfinder, which is helpful when composing in bright light.

Because this advanced camera does not accept interchangeable lenses, we consider this model an advanced point-and-shoot camera.

The camera has a maximum aperture of f/2.8. The camera's shutter speed range is 30 seconds to 1/1600 of a second.

The Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 stores photos and video on SD/SDHC/SDXC/MemoryStick Duo memory cards but has no on-board storage. It captures images as JPEG or RAW files at a top resolution of 5472 x 3648 and full HD-resolution video as MP4 files at a top resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a frame rate up to 60p and 60i fps.

This advanced point-and-shoot model has 25 autofocus points, 16 exposure modes, and an exposure compensation control that can be set at +/-3 EV. It has exposure bracketing, which allows you to take multiple exposures of a single scene. it also has a high-dynamic-range mode, which helps capture as much tonal range possible. The image stabilization system for this camera is optical.

The Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 measures 5.4 inches wide by 3.5 inches high by 4.7 inches deep, and weighs 30 ounces (1.9 pounds) (with battery, memory card, and strap).

About This Brand

Sony offers innovations at relatively high prices. Cyber-shot compacts and subcompacts offer distinctions such as touch screens and sleek bodies. The W series are budget lines. High-end H series compacts, and premium T series subcompacts tend to be priced higher than other brands.  Sony has expanded its SLR Alpha series significantly and offers cameras for every advanced camera user and budget, including models that have very large, full-frame sensors and special features, such as a High Dynamic Range (HDR) feature. It also has a wide range of lenses. Its SLR-like NEX series models include key SLR features, such as interchangeable lenses, but will have the small size and weight of a point-and-shoot. Sony has 3D technology on select basic and advanced cameras but it is limited to its special panorama models.

Comment:
I do like this camera but I cannot justify spending over $1000 for this camera where my Panasonic DMC-G5 with my $300 lens has the better image quality than this camera. It does has excellent video compared to my G5 and is a very easy camera to use. One thing I do not like about the Sony is that you have to go into the menu to get the burst mode and even self timer unlike my G5 where the options are on the buttons . I will be returning this camera this week for a full refund to Amazon and maybe get the Panasonic FZ-1000 at the end of July.
