Have this camera in another color, it is over 7 years old and still going strong. Bought this one as a gift I hope he gets the same use out of his as I do. Thanks, Sandy
I really like this camera. I took it on vacation and it took some great photos in daylight and night, as well as from a moving boat and a moving bus. I had upgraded from a Lumix DMC-FZ35, so it was pretty easy to learn how to use, but had some new features which made it even more useful. I love the articulating LCD! This is my go to travel camera now - sufficient zoom and wide angle for most of the shots I take as an amateur, and the battery life is great. I took over 1500 photos in two weeks so really put it thru the test. My only complaint is the SilkyPix software- still haven't figured it out and I can't open the RAW pictures in my version of Photoshop, but it may just be an upgrade is needed. This is a good compromise camera for those not ready for a full DSLR, but want more than a pocket camera.
Rated high and it lives up to expectation. Takes great pictures for me. Separate vidio record button is nice. Mic picks up crisp sound. Takes quality MP4 movies. A great choice for both pictures and vidio. I feel like I have quality in my hand when the lense moves. The screen is bright and menus are large enough for my over 50 year old eyes to read. It is fun to use. Flash is good for a point and shoot but takes about a second to fire in low light. The flash has two modes: iAuto that covers most cases and off.
Very sophisticated camera, far more than just a point and click. Highly recommend also buying Alexander White's, "Photographer's Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100 III" to teach you how to use the camera. The viewfinder is a great improvement over the earlier editions of this camera. I also appreciate the ability to wirelessly transfer photos to my phone or computer.
