    Paris night walk with RX100 and pocket tripod
    The weather was horrible last night, low cloud and fine drizzle. Just right for Paris in the winter. And I had a new $8 pocket tripod to try out with the Sony RX100. Minimum gear..

    All pictures Aperture priority f5 125 ISO done in RAW but in fact I didn't do any adjustment, it's exactly as the camera metered it.

    - Montmartre
    - Eiffel Tower from behind Pont Bir-Hakeim.
    - Place Blanche
    - Place du Tertre
    - Sacré Coeur

    Those are very well done Charles. Did you have a shutter cable or did you use the timer?

    The timer. No way to fit a shutter cable. This thing is an advanced point-and-shoot, not a full feature camera.

    It looks to me like I'm getting flare around bright lights. I'm going to have to check it against the S95. Designing a lens that fast that folds up that small is quite a feat but there may be some compromises. At least it's very sharp.

    These photos are great, Charles. They really show off the great image quality of the RX100. If there's lens flare, it's not enough to concern me - especially not considering that the camera fits in your pocket. One thing that would have been cool if is you had shot the same photos handheld at higher ISO settings so we could see a comparison.

    I'll have to go back with the S95 and do some handheld shots. Perhaps next weekend if the weather is right.

    In the meantime here are a few hand-held from last week in England. This is really "I don't know if this is going to work but I'm going to give it a shot" stuff

    1. Walking the dog away from the streetlights at 3200 ISO. I lifted the shadows with lightroom which has given it a slightly blue tinge. There is actually much more detail in the image than what I could see with my eyes.
    2. The dog at 2000 ISO. Easy
    3. Walking the dog at night at 3200 ISO under the streetlights, no manipulation
