Nate “Blunty” Burr (aka Blunty3000) Takes an in depth look at the Pentax MX-1.  This is Pentax’s new entry into the fixed lens compact arena, and it’s introductory price of $479 USD has it sliding in quite nicely between the Panasonic Lumix LX7 (currently a steal at $399 USD) and the Sony RX100 ($648 USD), which are two of our favorite compact cameras of the last year, and both are exceptional.  But can the new MX-1 compete with the likes of Sony and Panasonic?

Blunty’s back!  …and this time, the DigiDIRECT TV host is talking about Vlogging and his Ultimate YouTube Setup. Blunty’s formula for vlogging perfection: the Sony RX100 compact “DSLR in your pocket” camera + an iPad mini = the best road-warrior vlogger production, editing & camera kit in the world right now? It’s a road-warrior production studio that’ll fit in your pockets! I can’t argue with Blunty here.  These are all powerful tools that will give you BIG RESULTS despite their small size.

Photographer Eduardo Merille posted a fun comparison of the Canon 5D Mark II and the Sony RX-100. While I don’t think that the video is meant to imply that the RX-100 is better than the 5D-II in any way shape or form, I can’t help but noticing how well Sony’s little fixed lens wonder holds it’s own against it’s giant interchangeable lens cousin. Hello, David…  meet Goliath.  ; ) What do YOU think?  Leave your comments below. In the meantime, you can check out the Sony RX-100 Here

Gordon Laing of CameraLabs.com recently posted a review of the RX 100 and compared it to 2 of it’s contemporary rivals, one of which is the Panasonic Lumix LX7 – a breakout compact camera that was released [More]
Nauticam is a company that makes underwater housings for a wide variety of cameras. In the video above, a Sony RX100 fixed lens mirrorless camera is fitted with a Nauticam Housing and taken into the blue.

Watch and see (and be sure to watch this in full screen mode). Editor’s Note: The RX100 is an impressive little camera and I am blown away by the clarity, vibrant colors, and even the bokeh that [More]

The Sony RX100 is one of the world’s most powerful fixed lens, pocket sized cameras. With such incredible specs in such a small package, there must be some compromises, right? The Camera Store’s Chris Niccolls checks out this pocket powerhouse. Also, Jordan Drake takes a look at the Sony NX70 weather sealed camcorder. From watching the video, we think the footage taken with the RX100 looks even better than that from the NX70, and it’s about 1/4 of the price. Check them out below:
