First SONY DSC-RX100 Shot

After reading a couple of glowing reviews like this one, I decided to pick up a SONY DSC-RX100, the images I’m seeing from it are very impressive! It’s amazing that a camera this small deliver images this big! The list of technological achievements in this tiny gem is long. An f1.8, 3.7X zoom lens, 20 megapixel RAW images, a huge 1″ sensor, ten frames-per-second burst mode, stereo HD video, macro mode to 2″. Awesome! After just two hours with this camera, the battery is dead, and my mind is blown – again.

Hat tip to Grant for pointing me to this free Mac-only Russian ARW to RAW converter! With it, I can easily convert SONY’s proprietary RAW format into something usable.

Thanks as always to the Kellster for being such a good sport!

    I’m giving some serious thought to getting the Sony, despite the price, for Eleanore because she takes really good pictures (she reminds me of you!) but she won’t use a camera more complicated than a point and shoot.

    Well, let me complicate things further –

    Jim, Yea I was considering an entry level DSLR and looking at either the Nikon 3200, or the 5200 when it comes out. But I ran into the Sony Nex5r and heard a lot of good things. Any suggestions?
