Flash

Flash:
"One complaint is the placement of the flash."
_
"While the flash is a bit weak to be used generally as a bounce flash, there are certainly situations where you can achieve a very pleasing flash picture rather than the usual caught in a flash of lightning effect more typical of a compact point-and-shoot."
_
"The location of the flash on the top left side is annoying."
_
"One feature I am really please with is the ability to tilt the flash back and bound the light off the ceiling for indoor shots."
_
"Camera takes great photos but is very slow between shots when using the flash."
_
"High quality lens, adjustable functions, pop up flash that can be used as a back-fill flash, i love everything there is with this camera."
_
"The flash output is impressive, too, as is the quality of the video."

Focus

Focus:
"Other items are pretty cheap, though they might be useful (like card reader or batteries).Just BEWARE when buying this from Focus Camera -- it came in a very very damaged shipping box!"
_
"So far, the biggest drawback I've found is that while there is a manual focus option, there is no optical viewfinder, and it turns out that when shooting outdoors it is not easy to use the manual focus - the digital viewfinder is good for the point and shoot automatic modes, zooming, etc., but it is just very difficult to make fine-grained focus adjustments with it outdoors - it's simply hard from looking at that little display whether an object you are trying to manually focus on is perfectly in focus or not."
_
":) Very well done to Sony and to Focus Camera."
_
"I also liked that it came with a focus squeegee card, I thought that was funny."
_
"The charger does in fact charge the focus battery in about an hour, which was great."
_
"The focus battery charger they have with this kit is very nice."
_
"The Focus case is basic but fits well."

Image

Image:
"The Sony RX-100 presents an interesting set of challenges that detract from its excellent shooting performance and image quality."
_
"It blurs the background on portraits and has amazing image quality."
_
"But, because some people are able to ruin even the greatest photo op, even with such a technically advanced camera, by messing with the settings without knowing what they are doing, this camera has a perfect Intelligent Auto mode that would compensate any lack of experience on the part of the photographer."
_
"Images are so much nicer than a phone and it is almost the same size as a phone."
_
"The image quality is generally great, often sharper than my DSLR."
_
"I'm an amateur so I have a lot to learn but so far it's pretty easy to find all the different photo options."

Lens

Lens:
"As you zoom the aperture decreases and your lens becomes slower, but the images are still good when zooming, just not as sharp as when the aperture is wide open."
_
"At wide angles the image quality from this camera is phenomenal with a fast lens."
_
"(I shoot for digital web use and the NEX's superior lenses and sensor aren't so relevant."
_
"It's got a sharp, fast lens and focuses well."
_
"It's got a great lens and I love the extra things it came with."

Light

Light:
"In other words, if the light is dim or some other factors prevent you from taking a nice clean shot, the camera will polish up your shots for you."
_

_
"Excellent low light pictures."
_
"Great quality & light sensitivity for its compact size."
_
"This camera keeps providing crystal clear photos with very little light."

_
"There is a more detailed online manual, but if you want a decent printed user manual you will have to go to an online bookstore and purchase one."
_

Photo

Photo:
"My main purpose was to take great photos of my baby and family."
_
"This camera has the technical capabilities to shoot such remarkably high quality photos that it could compete with professional DSLR cameras (simply speaking, those big and heavy ones with huge detachable lenses)."
_
"We wanted a point-and-shoot that took great quality photos (our cell phones are amazing, but I doubt we will want to print off, blow up, and or frame pictures we take with our cell phones for family members)."
_
"I love taking photos but have never had the time to really learn, but this camera over Thanksgiving gave me lots of shots to be proud of, it just makes me realize it's the camera and not me."
_
"I was looking for a small point and shoot that could take amazing photos and so far that's what this it."

Screen

Screen:
"I could attach the grid layer to the screen, but not the clear layer."
_
"It's hard to see the screen in sunlight."
_
"the only disadvantage is the screen protector."
_
"Our only complaint is that the LCD Screen is the only way to view future photos (no eye piece to look through)...very difficult to set up photos, especially in the bright sun."
_
"The camera does not have the best zoom range and the On Screen tips for different settings are pretty much useless unless you're a professional photographer."
_
"I liked it that they were clear and that you can see the screen and measure it and cut it that way."
_
"I want to be able to see the screen of my camera please."
_
"The only shortcomings are that the wrist strap is better geared for a DSLR than for a small camera like the RX100, and the screen protector scratches easily."
_
"Cleaning Fiber ClothBower Universal Screen ProtectorPrime shipping is great."
_
"I highly recommend this kit, which includes a fast 32GB memory card, good quality camera case, screen protectors (which you must cut to size), cleaning brush -- and a totally inappropriate ill-fitting wrist strap, designed for giant SLR cameras (if you have an SLR, the wrist strap could be useful, but don't try to use it with this small camera)."

"The only problem I have is that the camera is so small that my fingers keep getting in the way of holding it secure."
_
"I highly recommend this kit, which includes a fast 32GB memory card, good quality camera case, screen protectors (which you must cut to size), cleaning brush -- and a totally inappropriate ill-fitting wrist strap, designed for giant SLR cameras (if you have an SLR, the wrist strap could be useful, but don't try to use it with this small camera)."

Speed

Speed:
"Electronics develop so fast that possibly soon there will be other great cameras to compete with this one."

Zoom

Zoom:
"The zoom isn't great, but then again, it depends on what you want to use the camera for."
_
"The downsides of this design is a rather limited zoom range (28-100mm equivalent) and a class leading, eye watering price."
_
"The camera does not have the best zoom range and the On Screen tips for different settings are pretty much useless unless you're a professional photographer."
_
"Digital zoom is very good especially in daylight."
_
"Zoom is pretty short as well."
_
"The speed is a lot less impressive when zoomed in (f4.9 @ 100mm equiv), especially considering that this is only a 3.6x zoom factor."
_
"If it is available for x10 zoom, it will be fantastic...."
