Re: Sony RX10 user experience thread

Ok, I got the cheapo AC adapter, it works fine, with No SD card, and displaying out of the HDMI port. I did not get a Ninja-2 yet. But I really love this little camera.

Re: Sony RX10 user experience thread

No Limit, I think the reason is, is because the camera is not having to buffer and write to the SD card, which makes the processor work, which causes overheating, and also the time limit. In the case of the Ninja-2, it's doing all the processing and encoding, taking the load of the RX-10. I have not had a need lately for extended recording, so I'll wait till I get a job that requires it then I will get a Ninja-2.

I inquired about the price for a spare battery for the RX10.
It costs 58, just wondered if that where any third party batteries available now?

Re: Sony RX10 user experience thread

I can't recommend the brand, don't know them, but I got similar deal, two batteries and a charger, which made it worthwhile IMO.

To get the best images from the camera will take a bit of practice! I have finally given up and now run in full manual most the time, it makes such a difference.

Re: Sony RX10 user experience thread

I love using the RX10, I find it fun to shoot and take stills with and the image that comes out for me is excellent. I really like the 1 inch sensor for video although I wish it had 4:2:2 and a flip out screen.

I have just been in China for 8 days and took the RX10 along and put the camera through every setting I could find for my work flow. Sony have really done well here with this camera for size, functions, quality and price. I'm considering selling all my shoulder cameras and using the RX10 along with a A7S as my kit, period.

While I was in China I used the Active steady shot on everything and this is a great feature to have and works very well, at first I thought the Active steady shot was cropping in on the image with resolution drop but since I'm back home and a few tests later I'm hard pushed to see any difference between Active v Std and Off with resolution drop.

Thank you Simon. I can't get over just how many people love the quality of this camera.

I have an PMW320 and I can see were your coming from regarding selling them for something like these.

Thank you again.

Re: Sony RX10 user experience thread

I hate the semi-fixed lcd screen on the rx10 which gets all dirty during a wedding shoot and I already have several small scratches on it, I hate it's ridiculously slow zoom, I hate the 30 minute recording limit but other then that it's a lovely camera :)

All joking aside, the rx10 is the best "bridge" camera that shares some characteristics from a dslr but is almost as easy as a video camera to shoot with.

The only odd things I have encountered is that it gets very unresponsive at times, if I want to go into the menu or press any button on the camera there is a abnormal long delay before something happens. It doesn't last all day, it just occurs from time to time. I also had the lens returning to it's previous position when I restart it, a behavior that is not supposed to happen, this again happened for a while but now doesn't do that anymore.

Thanks Noa, that's good to know.
I suppose you just have to get used to the 30min recording time.

That recording limit on dslr's I will never get used to but not much that can be done about that.
