Wow, thank you for the quick responses Millsart, Douglas, and Sebboh!

I probably over-exaggerated my concern over the CyberShot tag. I've always associated that label with Sony's consumer products, instead of being designed for the prosumer or professional. This is my first Sony camera so I'm still warming up to them. It's good to see them start to shed their reputation for targeting gadget aficionados more than the artist demographic. Since a good portion of the lens is embedded inside the body (and the sensor being placed at the very back of the body), it enables high performance in a tiny package. I think this parallels the actions Apple took when they started glueing batteries inside their laptops to make them slimmer. It prevented interchangeability and initially prompted criticism, but it prioritized the industrial design and user experience and eventually won mainstream approval. The full frame NEX may be an epitome of ironic camera design if the lenses dwarf the body. Sony will have to engineer the proportions very carefully.

Wow, I never could figure out how to assign the AF to another button, or more accurately, how to get it to work like I wanted. I kept trying the AF/MF hold option, but it didn't do anything because I didn't know you had to have the camera set to manual focus. I always had it set to AF and all it would do it toggle af/mf. I never even though to try it starting with MF mode

edit: oh did you mean you develop the raw on your computer and save the resulting jpg on the memory card and put it back in the camera to apply the effect?

Yes, exactly.

it's kinda hit or miss with peoples faces. up close it often looks quite good, but sometimes can exaggerate circles under the eyes etc. at mid distances it often only gets one or two facial features so things turn out rather picassoesque. at longer distances it's great (millsart posted a few night ones with people a few pages back) and abstract. nobody is recognizable.


In general, it seems to work best with photos with greater DOF.

sebboh, fascinating tree photos (p.72 #9). They look great in B&W, and almost a bit spooky. Like they could have reached out and grabbed you. And what a scene with the raccoons! Hope I'll get to see one in real life some day.

I had some errands in town today and brought RX1. Here are some shots (first one is inspired by sebboh ). It was fun to photograph something other than landscapes for a change:


great city shots! really like the escalator and walker. that pigeon in the center looks quite gluttonous!

regarding the raccoons, they're pretty common in almost any american city. they've adapted quite well to living off our trash. most are rather skittish, but the ones in golden gate park are used to being fed by park goers will generally let you get quite close before running away. i have to be careful with my daughter, she has often expressed the wish to try and give them hugs.

i tried a true low light test a couple days ago at f/2 and iso 25600:





things look quite grainy, but detail and color are surprisingly good

and a couple random shots:

This is one thing I've found nice about the RX1 high ISO, its not so much that less grainy than other cameras (especially if you keep NR turned off like I do) but the color stays pretty accurate and also fairly well saturated.

..and the files still let you get what you want; and images are mostly impervious to poor light sources. You still get this sense that the camera is on your side, trying to help you. So you can keep shooting to see how the RX1 'sees the scene'.

As always too many good shots to comment on, but on the last pages I think Helena and Sebboh stands out with lots of consistently good images, of Helenas images I think the urban set stands out even if the Ustĺsen landscapes are also very good with dramatic skies and light. Sebbohs distinct style seems to work well with the RX1, I particularly like the eucalyptus trees, even if the urban stuff is also very good, for instance the council/ no parking shot above.

Some holiday postcards from southern France from me:

Being automotive shooter, I wanted to see how the RX1 one will do in that setting. I think it did quite well! The leaf shutter helped with the strobes. I was even able to catch some on the street in poor lighting an high ISO

Bob...you have done what I didn't think was possible...pulled so much out of the trees on that second image that I can see color noise. Really like the rays coming out on that first shot

rodknee...awesome shots of the 240Z. How were you able to get the road to yourself on the first shot?

Not sure if the RX1 gets better with age or the photographers are beginning to master its ability but these are all special shots.

Here are some handhelds with arms fully extended above my head to reach over the cheering crowds. Who needs a zoom when you have the RX1?
