Nevertheless, I find no justification for the price. We have a compact camera here. A Sony full-frame camera without a lens costs less than the RX100 M3, the full-frame camera with lens costs only 1.5 times the small RX100 compact camera.
I realize that the image of the photographer takes. It certainly follows the lens, then the camera. But what is not said in the other reviews here I think really that the light intensity is not this is by far, of which it is made here. It is of secondary rapidly that despite F2.8 and 70mm KB exemption potential is barely there, or to put it differently, as blurs the background only when the main subject is located very close to the camera.
The physics can not outsmart yourself namely. Not only the focal length must be multiplied by the crop factor, but also the iris. The RX100M3 has my bill for despite larger sensor a crop factor of 2.73. Aperture 1.8 is so because to 4.91 and Aperture 2.8 is to 7.64. A ballpark Kitobjekt on the APS-C SLR with 50mm / F5.6 brings it with a crop factor of 1.6 to 80mm / F8,96 KB. The physical properties differ scarcely a Standardkitlinse Even at wide angle.
So much for theory. So who knows what he is getting himself, can be satisfied with the camera. But some seem to think, to having an aperture of 1.8-2.8 here can shoot photos that are similar to high-intensity SLR pictures.
The course has a RX100M3 fainter sensor as an SLR. It corresponds to the objective values ago an SLR with Standardkitobjektiv. But it is so small that it fits into the glove compartment or center console and thus has the advantage just always be there. Waivers and beautiful bokehs will be a rarity for this camera more. Something like that you will rarely meet as a snapshot, but it probably needs already plenty of skill, as long as it is physically possible.
But I want to emphasize that the quality of the images is on SLR level again. 100% views compared to A77 taught me little to no negative differences.
But who is to Bokehs and waivers, this is achieved even with a 1 "large sensor only by focal length. The course provides the RX10 lot easier with their 200mm KB focal length.
Because I really think the price of Sony around 1000 EUR for a compact camera arg covered, I want the camera to give 3 stars. Current price at Amazon is 849 EUR. You have to let melt times on the tongue.
Manufacturers should specify not only the focal length figures but also the aperture in KB in your advertising. Since the RX100M3 is namely F4.91 - F7.64 instead F1.8-2.8. Who knows, maybe understand a little why I find almost 1000 EUR greatly exaggerated in these values.
