I went out into the vineyard for a late afternoon walk with Tasha yesterday afternoon, and I took my "new" old camera with me. It was a test. Reviewers say the Sony DSC-RX100 M2 camera can take good pictures in low-light situations. It was almost dark when I went out just before sunset, especially since a bank of dark clouds was moving in from the west. I'm pretty happy with the results I got — these images are much sharper than the ones my Panasonic cameras can produce, even though some of them are still pretty soft when viewed at full size on a big monitor. I processed the photos in Photoshop Elements, cropping them and adjusting sharpness, contrast, brightness, and colors.
I was lucky yesterday — it didn't start raining until I had been back in the house for a few minutes. So far, I'm pretty happy with the Sony camera. It doesn't have a very long zoom, but I already have a Panasonic camera with that feature. What the RX100 does have is a good wide-angle lens and a 1.8 F-stop setting, which is better for low light conditions. For this test, I took both close-up and wide-view shots. The slide show runs for less than two minutes.
