So with the cost of PC hardware being currently out of control I decided to look else where to get rid of my annual PC disposable income budget for a better value product. I went for a new camera. I have had the Sony RX100m1 pocket friendly camera from that time. Its pretty bust up now but still takes amazing snaps as well as true HD video with obvs built in zoom. I dont have time or the patience for those interchangeable multi KG monsters. So My new camera is the RX100m7. I nearly did not buy one because of the reviews by those so called reputable blokes who know what they are on about? Anyway I spotted a good deal and jumped in. THE MYTH BUSTING FIRST. HDR and MACRO Good at macro shooting? Yes I found it to be incredible and better than my m1/ same settings HDR shooting? Yes once set up for best results the m7 is better than my m1/ same settings For better results in HDR shooting my settings are P: Flash/of, Focus mode/ single shot AF, Autofocus area/ centre, ISO AUTO, Metering mode/ centre, Auto WB, Dro/Auto HDR set at AUTO HDR, ISO noise reduction/ Normal. I guess these settings will work well with the a9 and a7. The m7 comes with a view finder which is terrific as the view is adjustable for impaired eyesight and as I'm getting older that feature was a must. Also I found the colours to be a tittle truer on the m7 and the m7 is almost noise free operation compared to the m1 and the m7 is fantastically fast. I'm not to sure about reputable? reviewers? who just want to piss on stuff!
