Buying a New Phone, and Want the Best Camera? iPhone 5S vs Nexus 5

A good comparison between the iPhone 5S and the Nexus 5. There is a part in the beginning that’s about the speed of the processor, but after that it’s a good comparison between the cameras.

Sony RX-100, test update

So, a few days more have gone by since I bought my Sony RX-100 as my new “carry-with-me-cam” and I must say I’m starting to really like this small friend of mine. Of course there are down sides, but overall it feels like a really good camera, price and size included in the comparison.

On the down sides… I still can feel a little bit frustrated about the time factor, since I’m used to faster cameras, and I sometimes struggle to find a good focus. I also find it hard to adjust some of the settings that’s usually found directly on buttons, instead of in menus. The later can be solved partially by attaching functionality to the buttons (like the fn-button).

Here are some new photos taken with the Sony RX-100. The photos are unedited if it doesn’t says other under each image, except for adding the text in the bottom. All photos are saved “for web” in Photoshop with an image width of 1200.

Last of all. This test isn’t a professional test where I compare this camera against 10 others. This is just my personal opinion about the Sony RX-100.

I hope you all have a great ending of this weekend, the last one before Christmas.

Sony RX-100, first thoughts

Sony RX-100, First thoughts

So, the day after I posted my thoughts on buying the Sony RX100 I went out and bought one due to all the positive feedback that I’ve got. Thank you btw for your comments and e-mails!

My first impressions:

I’ve only taken like 20 photos so far (just for testing and nothing else) and my first impressions are:

Pros:

Really good (actually awesome considering the size of the camera) image quality
Easy to use
Lens

Cons:

Slow focus in the dark
When you’re used to a DSLR many controls are in the menu instead of in front of you
I haven’t discovered a way to do Time Lapse so far (maybe due to handling error)

Well, this is just the first day. I’ll get back with more reviews along the way.

Take care
