Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10


Sony has a long history of making interesting cameras and has, in recent years, produced some of the most innovative products and technologies. Not all of these developments have caught on but we've admired its pioneering spirit, even when we haven't...

Very good photo quality, especially when shooting Raw ; Top-notch video quality ; Excellent and flexible 24-200mm equiv. F2.8 lens ; Solid, weather-sealed body ; Many tools for shooting video: focus peaking, zebra pattern, step-less aperture ring ;...

Pricey ; JPEG images are over-sharpened and over-processed ; Video bit rates not competitive with best digital cameras ; Autofocus can be hesitant, especially in low light; AF improves when assist lamp is turned off ; Camera 'locks up' while buffer is...

The Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 offers a great combination of still and video quality, thanks to its 1" sensor and 24-200 F2.8 lens. Its focus is as much about video as stills, and the RX10 offers more controls in that respect than virtually any other camera....

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 review


Interchangeable lens cameras are great, except for one nagging aspect: if you want a wide focal range you're typically carrying a bag full of various glass. Needless to say, this isn't much fun on vacation or even a simple day trip. Enter the long-zoom...

Excellent stills and videos ; Great f/2.8 constant aperture ; High-quality EVF

Expensive, heavy (for a bridge camera) ; No touchscreen LCD ; Would love a longer zoom

One-size-fits-all bridge cameras are often touted as DSLR alternatives, but they’ve always lacked great performance and image quality – until Sony’s Cyber-shot RX10 showed up, that is.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 is a bridge-style camera that gets just about everything right, and its steep asking price reflects its impeccable quality.

Impressively sharp 24-200mm f/2.8 lens. Big 1-inch image sensor. 10fps burst shooting. Speedy focus. 1080p60 video capture. Excellent customizable control layout. Sharp EVF. Tilting rear LCD. Multi Interface hot shoe. Integrated Wi-Fi with NFC

Bulky. Expensive. External battery charger not included

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 ($1,299.99 direct) is not the type of camera that would typically excite this reviewer. The full-frame mirrorless Alpha 7 and 7R, which were announced on the same day held more interest for me. They took some of the...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Preview


Sony has added an impressive zoom lens camera to its RX-series of compact fixed-lens cameras. The new DSC-RX10 features the same 1.0-inch 20.2-megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor that debuted in the RX100 last year. However, where the RX100 was only a 3.6x...

Very nice! A few drawbacks


I've been wanting to upgrade for a while. I wanted an all-in-one camera but also wanted top quality images. This camera caught my eye when it was introduced. The price is steep, but in my opinion, it turns out to be worth it.Pros:Really gorgeous image...

Great camera if you don't want to buy a bunch of e


I just bought my dony rx20 and I love it, I'm coming from the canon rebel T3i and it was getting expensive to buy all the lenses I wanted, I travel and love to take pics but I don't like to travel with a bag full of equipment. This sony rx10 is all I...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 review


Outstanding photos and videos and a pleasure to use: the RX10 is a class act

Of course, SLRs and CSCs have the flexibility of being able to swap lenses for all sorts of specialist uses. Attach a cheap f/1.8 prime lens to an SLR and it'll beat the RX10 hands down in low light, albeit without the luxury of a zoom. However, a bag...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 is a bridge-style camera that gets just about everything right, and its steep asking price reflects its impeccable quality.

The RX10 is an impressively quick camera. It starts and shoots in 1.7 seconds, which isn’t as fast as an SLR but is impressive when you consider that its power zoom lens must extend before capturing a photo. The shutter lag is close to zero at the wide...
