There are a couple, (Rawthereppe) but I don't think that they yet handle the optical correction codes. This camera / lens combo really needs it.

We're stuck with Sony's dreadful Image Data Converter for the moment.

What IDC lacks in features it makes up for on colour accuracy. I usually get fabulous colour with no messing around. If I want finer detail I use Raw Therapee. That or C1 or anything else I have tried usually requires some fiddling to get colour that looks as good. In other words messing with it until it looks like the IDC version.

Thanks Bernard! Good to see.

(I'm still stumbling to find a good mini camera system. Sony NEX5 right now with kit zoom lens; may change.)

I've started working with the RX100 and will have a review within the next week or so. It's a pretty amazing little camera.

Michael

I like this camera but i cannot figure out a few things:

-no bulit in ND filter, correct?

-does it have autofocus in video mode? touch screen?

-is manual focus on the lens barrel?

Damn! I have a Alpha 900 and a KM 7D. I was all set to plunk down for a NEX 7 before Michael published his review. I never liked the idea of dropping $1,500 for the camera and kit lens plus the converter to use my A-mount lenses. Then there's the possibility of having to buy a whole new lens system. Pretty rich for me. The RX 100's starting to look better and better.

No filter and no touch screen. I don't know about video autofocus. The ring on the barrel can be programmed to do several things including manual focus.

especially the macro at 50mm-e and 100mm-e.

also, how much highlight recovery can you pull off with this camera? the samples i see online still have the p&s look to them, and i don't mean deep d-o-f. i like the nice design of this camera, and i might get one if the files look like they came from a dslr as reviewers say.

thanks.

I guess my next question would be how best to applying Neutral Density ( I would be using this primarily for video ). I guess with some sort of small glass screw on filter hacked on there. Kinda defeats the purpose of a small camera though.

 Also still trying to figure out if it has AF during video.

There's another great review by EOSHD.com - http://www.eoshd.com/content/8499/sony-rx100-review bit more video orientated. The 1080 50p footage is amazing.

I had a play with this camera yesterday in the store and after reading the reviews (thanks Michael and Bernard) think I might pick up one this afternoon. This along with my GoPro2 will be perfect on my two week cycling tour of Sri Lanka in a few weeks. Sorry 5D3 you can to stay at home.

Sorry Marc, didn't check that feature out :)

But I did notice that it has a "Gourmet" setting as one of it's scene modes which really should please all those people who like to photograph what they are eating and post it on Facebook.

Just went across the street and picked one up (In China if you have to travel more than a block to get anything then it's probably not something you need). Looking forward to shooting some video and stills later today. Why diet and exercise to loose weight when you can just start carrying a smaller camera.

Marc, this camera can still focus just over an inch away from the subject. Below is a processed Raw file with no sharpening.

Cheers, Derryck.

Just for fun, I did a quick comparison just to see how this little camera would compare to the 5D3. This test is not very scientific as I haven't read the manual for the RX100 yet so I'm sure there's some settings that could have been adjusted, especially for the video. The 5D3 has the new 40mm pancake lens attached and the RX100 was zoomed to the equivalent angle of view. First image is just showing the full frame. The second is a still image comparison and the third compares 100% screen grabs from video. It's quite incredible what this camera manages to record at full HD at 50p.

The 5D image is on top.

Yeah,

It's remarkable what a difference a few MP and some dt can make ;-)

Thanks for the images I think the RX100 out resolves the 5DIII note the 2 xtra people that the RX100 resolved and the 5DIII did not! :)
The macro ability looks good when I bought a Canon G1X I didn't think I'd miss it but I do.
