The new RX100 MKVI and the History of the RX100 Series (Video)
Let’s continue on with more about this new RX100 MKVI from Sony. The original and still best pocket camera lb for lb, feature for feature. I just whipped up a video here while sitting in my office, talking about the previous versions and showing photos from all. It’s a lengthy video for me at 22 minutes or so but kind of talks about the evolution of the RX100 model. The new MKVI goes up for pre order on June 7th (This Thursday) right HERE. Ships in July. It’s the fastest model yet, and if you want to see the full specs, check out my post from earlier today HERE.
Below is the video going over all versions of the RX100 camera. Enjoy!
BTW, you can still order EVERT version of the RX100, links below to info on price or to order!

Why has the maximum aperture dropped from the ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm F1.8-2.8 lens in the MK V to ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200 mm F2.8-4.5 in the latest model?
I’m disappointed they haven’t brought back the hot shoe.
Because it’s a different lens. Longer lenses, especially a 28-200 equivalent type will never be f/1.8 at this size. At least I have never seen one (at any size). They brought reach to this one, which is impressive for a pocket camera but we sacrifice on aperture speed. The good thing is, the 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are still offered and for sale so we can pick which one we like best ; )
That was a terrific video. Loved the soothing background music. More of this, please. 🙂
I’d say that the new RX100 is exactly what a lot of people have been waiting for. Its zoom has more flexibility than the previous versions, and yet it’s not as bulky as the RX10. It’s in the Goldilocks zone for sure.
A lot of professionals will use this camera a lot, as it can replace pretty much anything else for a lot of applications.
