The lack of a mic input is a deal breaker for me…

Firstly, thank you for this great video. Secondly, I am in a situation right now where previously avoided buying into the RX100 series because I thought I could not justify their ~/> $1000 price tags for a compact camera. I have 2 Dslrs and almost the all the STM lenses & a Lensbaby fish eye but decided to go back to the pocketable approach. I have an S95 from 2011 and that is still a wonderful camera (a truly pocketable one); I wanted to shoot actually more video (without getting into the Gh5's vs the BMPCC4K world). For a change I went with the Lumix LX10, instead of waiting for the G7Xm3 (which still hasn't arrived) and the savings went to a GoPro6 instead of getting just the RX100 V. So far I am happy with my LX10. I usually use it with my Zhiyun Crane-M. While I do enjoy the big aperture of the LX10, it's range is 24-70mm, which brought me to this quest to supplementing it with the Lumix ZS200 (24mm-360mm), which led me to the Leica C-Lux (which is just the Leica version but at least $300 more expensive), which brought me again to the RX100 series — the mark VI) whew! So now, which is which? I thought getting the ZS200 would be the most sensible because probably the built in color/picture profiles will be the same and edit will be effortless, or do I get the "Leica" just to try a Leica when it's truly not a true Leica, or should I just get the RX100m6 for all it's tech but editing files with my LX10 may pose additional work?!? Again, thank you for your video and your work.

No mic input hmmp

Paul Corcoran says:

Nice video Jay. Yes, this little camera is a mighty atom. I just wish that they would incorporate a larger, more powerful, battery, and, insodoing, the extra bulge created for the bigger battery could also give the camera a much needed grip.

VAO says:

Sony please add a mic input and this would be the ultimate vlog camera!

Bigjuergo says:

next time pls hide your head when showing the example fotos thank you!

I used to use g7x mark ii
It had great pictures but slow af killed me. Would you recommend me rx 100 mk5 or mk6?

Ilse Olive says:

What a fantastic video review and camera! Can’t wait for mine to arrive. Just two questions please?
1) Can one ‘select’ a frame from the video or slow motion video into a JPEG file?
2) When the camera stops operating due to overheating,
a – how long before you can use it again?
b – will swapping batteries help?

Thanks so much!

Hi Jay thinking of getting into photography as I do a lot of walking and wild camping I've looked at a lot of cameras to be fare but keep coming back to the rx series v or vi,
At the moment I take all my pics with my phone I would like my first camera to do everything lol…..but do realise there will be compromise……I would love to be able to shoot some star pics on a evening my friend uses his go pro 4 on manual mode and gets some real good images on a night considering it's a actione cam how would the 2 rx models do against go pro and would there be a massive difference between the v and vi would be gr8 if you had some pics of 5 v 6 shooting stars as I can't find any on net ….great video mate and yes I have subbed you. Atb rob

Philippe Dassonval says:

What kind of software do you use on this video please? it looks so easy to learn….

Mel Prophet says:

Terrific video. Very helpful to see real world sample pictures. I have the RX 10 IV which I love, but have been thinking of picking this one up. I've never had a compact camera. Looks fun!

KC Tan says:

Hi Jay, your coverages about Sony RX100 VI and V are great ! Am new to camera. How significant are they in low light conditions between SONY Rx100 VI (f/2.8-4.5) and VA (f/1.8-f/2.8) shoot in auto mode ? You showed the 'Macdonald' photo in this video for Sony Rx100 VI. Just wonder how will it look like in Sony Rx100 VA. Thanks.

Good review!
Does shooting in raw file makes the battery die quicker?
