guys, im using mk1 now. wife complain hard to transfer to phone. should i upgrade 2nd sony a5100 / a6000 or just buy wifi sd card. what i like about the rx100 is the size. really easy to carry. about the picture quality, im still satisfied with the camera.
but maybe the camera is old already and it is time to upgrade to APS-c.

I don't have the mk1 but I imagine the wifi transfer for A5100/A6000 is similar. You still have to go into the app and transfer. It's especially annoying if you're travelling with a pocket wifi because you have to switch your phone's wifi to the camera 1st sweat.gif

I had the toshiba flashair before (used with Fuji X100) and it was a more straightforward experience. That was a few years ago so things may change

Real question is u want to upgrade cause of features or image quality?

Even older apsc/ff camera will outperform rx100 with right lens and technique. But if u don't do post processing or study how to edit picture, even smartphone picture will come up nicer than FF camera.

Even if the camera has WiFi or Bluetooth feature, often times u would rather just transfer from sd card cause its a hassle to wirelessly transfer and the amount of battery power it drain is not worth.

If I watch my photos on a 75in TV, is a 1in Sensor good enough for PQ or need a APS-C?

I’m thinking of going for RXVI instead of 7 for price. Also for pocket ability. I find it a bit heavy to hang my A6400 around my neck for travelling. Hence sold it.

So my shortlist of VI and maybe VII or a Ricoh GR3

What you should be concerned about is megapixels, not sensor size. Your TV is 1080p if full HD (short edge) or 3840px long edge if 4K. Any sensor larger than 8MP will be more than enough, the rest is up to your photography skills.

Hi guys, i have A6000 for almost 4 years and i often use wide lens to go with it. Recently i came across with this RX series. I find it is so compact and small. I love the small form factor as it is much easy to carry around, although i can say A6000 is not as huge as dslr or A7.

My question, how is the image quality in real world situation? Given the fact recent RX6 or 7 have a newer technology despite its smaller sensor. I often print out my photos and put it into albums. But usually 4R or 5R size only. Will i ‘downgrade’ by changing my camera to RX?

Same as me. I had my A6000 in 2014 and uses Twin Zeiss Touit lens. Love it. But sold them already as too heavy to bring around for holiday. Now looking at RX100.

I got the mark 2 since years ago. Can say good enough and comparable with older a bit punya dslr or mirrorless with kit lenses...

newer rx100 should be better in term of low light (at least a bit) and focusing (this part should be much better)

for small print, I can say good enough and you probably will be wow (for me at least who also use dslr)

But you don't get 24-70/24-200 Zeiss with that full frame.

Same situation here... currently own a A6000, but a bit too bulky for holidays. Also wondering whether it is a downgrade if I change to RX100/G5X. So what did you all buy in the end?

If u r still sticking with a6000 kit lens, not much of downgrade. Just the pricing bit a bit of a downer since if u can get some prime combos with Apsc at that pricing.

But if u value portability there is no actual minus point if u go rx.
