Storm Clouds 7/28/14

A nice night to sit back and enjoy the show (and try to figure out what those damn ducks are called).

Did You get outside last night to shoot those beautiful clouds?  If so send in your pics and I’ll add them to this post.  I was sitting there watching it for about 20 minutes just itching to grab the tripod out of my truck when finally I couldn’t take it any more, the light was pretty amazing.  Working on a timelapse of it right now.

Sony RX100 Takes Some Damn Fine Photos

http://seasquared.viewbook.com/album/august12th?p=1&s=null#1

Check out these amazing photos taken by Charlie Carroll with his new Sony RX100. They were taken at the Beach at the Western end of the Boulevard, opposite the Tennis Courts.  The first few shots were taken at Buswell’s Pond.  The camera was hand held and the conditions were overcast with rain approaching.  The average details for each shot were

F 5.6…  1/160th sec…  ISO 125… the Focal length was 10 mm… and no flash or tripod was used. 
 
Charlie says he is still learning how to use this camera and hopes to be fluent soon.  I can’t image what he will be getting when he becomes “fluent” with this camera.  These are some insane shots.  Of course, Charlie has a great eye and learns every minute detail of whatever equipment or program he works with.

Edit by Joey:
I can’t emphasize enough what stuffing this large sensor into this small of a camera can do for even the most average of photographers.  imagine a camera you can carry around with you everywhere which can capture the same kind of photos as cameras with huge lenses that you have to hang around your neck or off your shoulder all day long.  It’s a revolutionary camera.  I can’t recommend it enough or give Sony enough props for producing it. To me, the most exciting camera announced in 10 years. The Sony RX100 here

Charlie Carroll Shows What the RX100 Is Capable Of-

Joey;
Got mine Aug 18th… I shoot with a Canon 60D (a full sized DSLR), with all L series lenses and the Sony RX100 comes in at a close 2nd. Shot some Still life’s while sitting Wednie Demouths Gallery last week… Available Light at ISO 125 and the results were remarkable… My apologies to all that were assaulted by my continuous praise of this incredible camera… We ought to have a GMG RX100 Shoot Off…
What’a ya say ?

Here are some Test Shots I took last week… the Images loose a lot of their character when compressed for viewing on the Web… very annoying… The Originals are Vivid and have amazing detail… High ISO, low light… NO NOISE !

I love it !

This is what’s capable with that huge sensor.  Allin a form factor you can put in your pocket.  remarkable!

Bottom Line The Camera You Should Buy- The new Sony RX100

They did what no one else has done.

Stuffed a huge sensor in a small camera that can fit in your front pocket.

No one researches new cameras like I do.  No one, because what I do on this blog makes me appreciate what a large sensor and super fast Carl Zeiss 1.8 lens in a camera body that can fit in your front pocket can produce.

How many times have I told you the best camera is the one you have with you? A large DSLR that you don’t lug around with you because it is just too cumbersome is USELESS TO YOU if you decide to not bring it along with you.  But now there is no tradeoff.  they put that huge DSLR sensor into a camera that can fit in your pocket. #Boom!

This is the camera I’ve been screaming that camera makers should make and that people WOULD pay up for.  Something that would deliver excellent results in a small form factor.

I resigned myself last year to chalking it up to it not being possible because I figured I couldn’t be the only person that wants to be able to carry around a camera THIS CAPABLE IN LOW LIGHT in their front pocket.

NOT AROUND YOUR NECK, NOT HANHING OFF A STRAP OVER YOUR SHOULDER!

IN YOUR FRONT POCKET TUCKED AWAY FOR THE MOMENT SOMETHING AWESOME HAPPENS AND YOU WANT TO CAPTURE IT IN AWESOME DETAIL.

THIS IS THE CAMERA.  DON’T THINK- JUST BUY IT. 

It’s a premium constructed, premium picture quality Hi Def Video Monster in a small form factor.

They took what was really good about the Canon Powershot series S95 and S100 which are both very good cameras and blew it out with a sensor that is over double the size of those two cameras which are good performers in their own right but the RX100 crushes them in terms of performance.

NO ONE HAS DONE THIS BEFORE.  IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF REVOLUTIONARY.

Here it is-

and the reviews-

First of all the RX100 sales success never stops. It still sells more than any other mirrorless or DSRL or High end compact camera at Amazon US (Click here to see the ranking) and slowly climbing the rankings at Amazon UK and Amazon Germany too. So let’s take a look at some of the most recent new tests:

The well know filmmaker and blogger Philip Bloom  usually tests heavy and expensive video stuff only but he could not resists to take a look at the Sony RX100 too: “This is aVERY small camera with a crap load of stuff in it and it does most of it, from what I have so far, very well. The best pocket camera I have used to date, beating my beloved Canon S100.” You can see some videos on his website (one of them I embedded on top of this post).

An enthusiastic review has been posted by the guys from The Verge (Click here): “Sony’s RX100 is nothing short of the best all-around compact camera I’ve ever seen. Where mirrorless cameras made waves by downsizing DSLR-quality photos into a package you could throw into your coat, the RX100 does the same for your jeans. It’s really no exaggeration to say that it produces images roughly on par with an average DSLR and kit lens combination, making this a revolutionary camera that means you’ll always be in a situation where you can take genuinely high quality pictures.
