Hi All

 

I have A DSC-RX100 that I have had for many years but think it might be on It's last legs, the problem that I am having is that when I engage the shutter release it takes some time to focus, it sounds as though the focus drive has a problem in that it continues trying to focus and the motor is still running even when I have move it away from what I am photographing.

 

Repair or new RX100?

It sounds like a serious problem and I expect repair would be expensive if it is even possible. Fixation are back in business and do Sony repairs so might be worth checking but you might be paying close to what you would pay for a newer model. Given that there have been some major improvements over the evolution of the RX100 series, I would be inclined to go for a newer model. There is £100 off the Mark VA and VI at the moment from Wex (and presumably other sellers). Wex also have some used Mark III and IV cameras for sale. The reason I say Wex is that they do really examine gear very carefully when they take it as trade in so it should be in good nick and they give a guarantee as well.

Thanks for the confirmation I thought it might be terminal, it will be another RX100 as they are a great little carry anywhere camera and the quality of the images that it produces are outstanding.

I wouldn’t call what I said a confirmation - more a conjecture. You might still want to check out the Fixation website and get a quote for repair.

I will have it checked out first, but it is due for a replacement as I have had it several years.

 

Thank you.
