I currently have a Canon S95 as my P and S cam but would like better IQ...... All reviews I've read say the Sony is a very good camera and many say worth the price..... So I'm wondering if anyone on here has one and what did you upgrade from and was it worth the money to you???
I have a RX100 - it's my underwater camera as well as something I can easily carry around when I don't want or need the D7000. Previously I used an older Canon P&S SD970IS. I haven't taken the Sony underwater yet, but the land photos I've taken are quite good. I really like the camera and how easy it is to operate. I also have a Nikon S8000 that I may give to my parents or sell, as I doubt it'll get used much now.
If you have any specific questions, I would be happy to assist if I can.
How does it do with iso performance compared to your other p&s that you have??? I've played with a few RAW files I've found on-line and seems to be a noticeable difference compared to what I'm used to.... Also was wondering how the auto WB works for you... Im about to pull the trigger and just get one, just waiting to see if there'll be any Christmas deals on it....
It's a good bit better than my current cameras in every way that I have used it so far, especially how easy it is to adjust ISO (set to FN key 1st item), exposure, and aperture while in manual. It's really slick in that regard. That said, I've only had it a few weeks, so it's not had a great deal of use yet. I haven't gone so far as to test it against my other P&S head to head or anything, but that is an interesting idea. If you have something specific in mind let me know...I could probably do it - I'll be around all afternoon.
I haven't had any issues with the AWB, but I do shoot RAW so I can adjust WB in post.
The best deal I found was direct from Sony.com for $584 (still valid as of now, just checked again). Link
Yea I traded in my Canon S95 for it at KEH. they gave me $157 for it to go to the Sony which was listed for $525 EX+ condition. They also had a promo going at the time for 5% off. so I ended up getting it for ~$350 shipped 2nd day to me..... Looked it over and had about 1k pics taken on it and a couple of small scuffs on the front, but other wise new looking to me.
Here is an example of low iso daylight pic from it (I too have to live'n the pics up in post:
Imported into LR4.3 with default profile I made for sharpening:
I work as a technician at a Subaru dealer here in AZ. I also drive the older green Legacy in the picture. It has 218k miles on it and still going.... I'm in the process of building a very fast 00' Impreza RS 2 door, swapped with 05' STI. Looking to make at least 600whp+. Hope you like your new Suby... They are very good cars.
