Being a photographer/blogger for almost 10 years now have given me a lot of experience and also knowledge on taking awesome photos. I’ve been carrying my dSLR with me for years, to travels, photoshoots, outings and basically any event at all.
After lugging the dSLR with me for so long, I was thinking to myself… “Is there a compact camera out there which can perform as good as a dSLR yet has a tiny body to fit in pockets?” Previously there was no answer to my question but amazingly, the solution is now available and the answer is the SONY Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100.
When I first saw the announcement of the camera I was super hyped up as the specs amazed me. Let me tell you guys a bit about the specs.
- world’s first 1.0 type CMOS sensor (13.2 x 8.8mm)
- has a 20.2 effective megapixels
- F1.8 aperture Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 3.6x optical zoom
The 3 mentioned specifications above are already good enough reason to convince me complement my current dSLR with the RX100. Now I can go anywhere and still able to capture superb photos even when I am not carrying my big camera.
Here are some scenarios on how the Cyber-Shot RX100 eases my photography experience in my day to day life.
As depicted above, I go for photoshoots and street shoots a lot. Apart from that, I am always out and about so I need to take photos very frequently. With the RX100 that has a 20.2 megapixels sensor, not only it can capture culture and heritage, it can basically capture any scenes with high precision.
Whenever I witness an incident or when I see a beautiful scenery, I can quickly whip out the RX100 and capture the image almost instantly as the camera is only in my pocket and not kept in a bag lugged somewhere.
Everyone takes photos of their food right? Me too. In fact, I’ve been taking food photos since many years ago and realised that they only look good if the camera is able to blur the background. This calls for a big aperture lens like the one on the RX100. F1.8 is a great number for aperture to blur the background of a certain scene, making the subject stand out amongst the rest. This is great for food shots or even macro photography.
I travel a lot too! With the control ring on the RX100, I am able to adjust the aperture or exposure of the photo very quickly the moment I whip it out from my pocket. The most important thing to do while travelling is to take as many photos as you can. Having a compact camera in your pocket gives you the power to capture photos almost instantly anytime you want.
The Sony Cybershot RX100 is truly an amazing camera that you should really check out. More info can be found here http://www.sony.com.my/product/dsc-rx100
