Great little camera
by Milan from Ontario, Canada
I bought this camera at the Downtown location in Toronto. The sales guy was really good, not an expert for this model but solid overall knowledge about the 1 inch cameras.
I have been using the full frame cameras(Canon) for years and carried my camera bag all over the world. So, last year I decided to get a small camera that can "replace" my loved Canon 6d and 24-70 EF red ring lens.
The very first choice was the G7X Mark ii from Canon. Good camera but lacking some of the key features like 4K video, old AF system and no viewfinder. The second best (on paper) was the Nikon DL18-50 or 24-85 but Nikon failed badly with this camera.
Finally I decided to buy the RX100v and so far I am happy with my choice. Great video, 4K and HD. AF works like a charm even in a low light. I can manually setup the parameters or leave the camera on Auto or scene modes. Slow motion is exceptionally good, viewfinder works well and can shoot raw. I would let experts to talk about the bits and bytes but from the end user perspective this camera is great.
The only cons from my perspective are relatively small buttons, some parts looks fragile, battery life and price.
Conclusion, RX100v cannot outperform my 6d and red ring lenses but can make my life much easier when travel, shoot video and other.
