  • Easy to find settings
    Verified BuyerReviewed by chris227 - December 30, 2018

    After doing searches for a compact camera that had a 1 inch sensor and wide lens and reading different reviews I am so far very happy with my purchase it is much easier to find your way around different settings than my previous camera so looking forward to trying the different scene settings out so far I'm very pleased with results that I have tried and would recommend this camera to friends

  • Compact camera for Traveling
    Reviewed by Vodolaz1 - February 21, 2021

    I bought this camera 4 years ago and have been very happy with it. We took it to all around the world, even use it underwater during scuba diving (inside Fantasea housing)! The quality of pictures and video is great. Could not be any happier with the purchase.

  • Ideal travel/pocket camera that packs a punch
    Verified BuyerReviewed by WacWac - August 19, 2020

    The vii is a very capable camera whether you are a beginner wanting point and shoot or more advanced control through the various functions on offer. Picture quality is good and has exceptional auto focus capabilities. I’ve previously had SLRs (old school) and super zoom bridge cameras all of which require large carrying cases and for the SLR extra lenses. This camera is compact and fits in the pocket and is capable of macro pictures, wide angle and 8x optical zoom - did I mention it fits in your pocket! The digital zoom pictures are also very acceptable. I originally upgraded from a bridge camera to the rx100 v and was very impressed with the picture quality and versatility of that model. Having the camera for 2 years I always yearned for a better zoom capability. Finally I took the plunge and upgraded to the vii for the 8x optical zoom but had to compromise on the lens speed. This isn’t too much of an issue as the iso range of the camera helps compensate for the slower lens. The auto focus performance and touch screen were both additional benefits in the vii. I’ve had the camera for over a month and torn between the two (v and vii). I’ve taken similar images with the vii and and in certain circumstances the v took better images due to the faster lens; I take a lot of night shots. I’d definitely recommend both, especially if you are upgrading from a smaller image sensor, but bear in mind what you want to takes pictures of. Overall the zoom lens, improved auto focus and touch screen make the vii the all round, versatile compact camera. Note: Attached pictures have been compressed to fit the 5mb limit. Should provide a great view though of the quality.

  • Compact quality
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Notpiks - April 15, 2020

    I was given this for my birthday because I take photos for a walking group. Unfortunately because of lock down I have not been out as usual but I am trying to get used to the cameras myriad of features. The build quality is amazing. I did want a small camera “all in one” which it is but the small size takes getting used to after big cameras. Just what I need for climbing styles and muddy fields! Still great quality photos

  • Very Happy!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by timsk - April 27, 2017

    The RX100 III is a stunning camera - superb features and image quality - easily the best camera I've ever owned. The only negative is not with the camera itself - but with the user guide / manual which is next to useless. I had to rely on YouTube videos to learn how to use it - hence the 1 star rating for 'ease of use'. Other than that - the camera itself is awesome! Besides using it for photos of family, friends and holidays etc., as a mosaic artist, I wanted it to take photos of my work and that of my wife - a few examples are attached.
