Ed Rooney Posted December 8, 2013 Share Posted December 8, 2013 I have been doing some outdoors shooting with my new RX10, even if I've not been able to do any detailed testing on F/stops and zoom points. Overall, this camera has a solid, serious feel. As David K said, the zoom is slow . . . but I don't do a lot of quick zoom changes. There are some weak, questionable bits, however. > Using the two-part way of focusing and then shooting, I found the release button requires a heavier squeeze to focus. > The On-Off switch is cheap plastic and flimsy. For something that will be used so often, it should be lots stronger. > The covers on the places where the UBS and mic plug-in lives also have a weak and badly made feel about them. > When shooting in harsh, contrasty light yesterday, highlights were blown. I don't normally shoot when the light is not to my liking, but I know my NEX cameras or my Nikons would have produced better results. Yes, I'm using the multi settings on both the focus and metering. > That very unfunny young Asian reviewer is shown pouring water over the RX10 in his video. The manual clearly states that the RX10 is NOT water proof . . . so don't do that. >> Hopefully this last item is something I have accidentally setup wrong and can be corrected, but I could not find it anywhere in the menus: when I shoot an image, the finished still pops up and is displayed in both the viewfinder and on the screen. It is up for just a second, but it totally interrupts my shooting. It's driving me crazy. I don't remember it happening the first day I used the camera, but I'm no longer sure of the facts. This has never happen with my NEX cameras or with my Nikons. Many times on this forum I've admitted to not being a smart tech person, but I have a great deal of shooting experience. Some of you were very helpful in cluing me in about how to stop the camera from turning itself off. Perhaps someone reading this can help me with this display problem?
