In the streets with the Sony RX-10

May 07, 2014

As I wrote in Shrinking Gear, I'm currently looking for a capable travel camera that can accompany me during a longer journey with pretty severy luggage restrictions. Well, the G1XII that I had high hopes for doesn't really seem to make it. I'm currently experimenting with the Sony RX-10, another high-end point-and-shoot.

I'll let you know more about my experience in a while. So far, it has been quite promising. See attached a few images that I shot on a day trip around Washington, D.C. More (early) images of the RX-10 can be seen in my previous posts Point-And-Shoot #11 and Urban(a) Transformation.

Early morning in Washington, D.C.:

Fun photography in Alexandria, VA:

After heavy rainfalls lots of water in the Potomac River at the Great Falls, MD:

I'm still fighting with a few details of the RX-10, namely the steep tone curve and its consequences for post processing the images, but otherwise, things look pretty promising with this not-really-pocketable beast of a point-and-shoot.

Those of you who share my passion for street photography might want to take a look at some of my older posts, for example Streets of D.C., Streets of Berlin or take a look at the many street photography related posts on Brobo Photo. Follow this link to see more images made with the RX-10.

Stay tuned, folks!
