I just bought an RX1 from the second-hand market and have a couple of quick questions:
1. Is there any way to have a customize a dedicated focus button (and decouple auto-focus activation from shutter button)?
2. Is it possible to store stills and videos in the same folder? Or do I have to flip back and forth between folders when reviewing both formats on the camera?
I really enjoy how lightweight and discreet this camera is but need some time to measure how much functionality is retained and not compromised compared to a full frame DSLR, the utilitarian king. If its not...Show more →
Why does the Cybershot classification worry you ? Would your feelings really change if they called it something else ?
Video and stills go in different folders, just the (annoying) way Sony does things, but the RX1 really isn't that great of video camera IMHO (love my RX100 video though), so I've never found it to be an issue since I don't use it in that matter.
Don't think you can have a AF on button, at least I haven't found a way yet.
I think if your expecting DSLR utility from a fixed lens compact camera, you probably can pack it back up right now though.
It can give you the image quality of a DSLR, but its not going to give you the versatility of different focal lengths, the AF, the frame rates, the OVF, the battery life etc.
On the other hand, you can also carry it in a jacket pocket or around your neck all day and hardly know its there, which certainly can't be said for any DSLR's of comparable image quality.
