Camera is £427 today in Prime Day. Still shows cashback of £75 available from Sony, making final price £352. I did want a mark 4, but at this price seems a steal?

Now they are making version 5 I believe, for me it's not worth the money.


A good camera doesn't stop being a good camera just because newer models are made. All five models of RX100 are widely available and all five sit at different price points. The mk V is undoubtedly better, but it's also over £900. It's existence at double the price does nothing to stop this camera being a fantastic option for under £500.

They are all different and great cameras in their own right. I currently own the MK1 but seriously considering this for the tilt screen and EVF.

"CEH model on amazon so says it's 100 cashback. Even better!!" How do you go about getting £100 cashback? can you explain please

There is a link from the Amazon page to Sony UK. Full details shown there.

It should be £100 as on the Amazon site it's definitely down as "Item model number: DSCRX100M3.CEH" and on the Sony Cashback site it's down as £100 "DSCRX100M3.CEH £100.00 cashback"

Super price without any cash back.

I loved this camera until some c**t stole it

For those buying this I always found my MK1 a little slippy/tricky to hold. I then bough the AG-R2 Grip which is a stick on rubber grip. Makes the camera feel a lot more comfortable to hold. There's a few of these available in Amazon Marketplace with 20% discount bringing it down to £8.66.

Nice idea, but as long as it doesn't make this diddy camera as big as my Canon EOS6D

Too scared to take SLR when having a beer at night on a city break. Hope this baby won't get left behind as will fit in a jacket pocket.

I just grabbed this as a prime day warehouse deal and wondered if any of you think that I'd still be able to claim the cash back? I'm keeping my fingers crossed

I certainly hope so. I've screen grabbed the page clearly showing cashback available.

You pay £427, then claim £75 back from Sony.

This has happened before with a similar promotion they ran. Worth taking a screenshot of the main page and if it fails get in touch. I've just pretended to go through and make the claim and from the dropdown only the DSCRX100M3GDI.YG model (£75 cashback) appears and the CEH doesn't. I might get in touch with them and see what's happening.

3x optical zoom. For a compact camera where versatility is key (jack of all and all that) I find the lack of zoom extremely limiting.

HX90D (£75 cashback also) with its 30x zoom is a much better option for most IMO.

Depends on the quality you're after. The RX100 is high end compact and has a larger sensor and far better maximum aperture to name just a few things. If you're after a quick point and shoot then the HX90 is certainly a great camera but not a patch on the RX100.

Only £50 cashback, but still a good deal as I was about to post myself. Lack of raw format and smaller sensor will put off the more advanced user though in comparison to this.

Doh The_Hoff has got me going now. Not sure which one to get? Coming from a fuji XF1 with the dreaded lens control issue :-(

Have a read of this dpreview.com/for…702

is this the camera youtubers use to film with?

I wasn't gonna buy another camera until they support automatic HDR

greencode thanks for that, have seen some sample street scenes from the more expensive ones at night and you can look into windows that are not the main subject even when a streat lamp is right in front. Very impressive imaging-resource.com/PRO…HTM . Cannot see any samples like this with the cheaper one but dont expect it would be anything like that

Personally that's where I really notice the difference. The larger sensor and smaller aperture allows great photos in very low light without the use of flash.

You sometimes get a better idea of the capability of the RX by looking at real world photos using this camera on Flickr flickr.com/gro…ol/

Ultimately you get what you pay for. The HX90 is a capable camera but not in the same league as the RX100

I think this is expired. Had it in my basket while shopping when it was moved into my 'saved for later' section as the price had gone up. It's now £579.99.

Sold out? I can't see it at the £427 price point.

Oh well thats my mind made up price has gone up so gone for the cheaper option. Prob a big step up on the fuji that had the lens control fault that seems to be a common issue. What I should have done is got both and sent the one I like the best back given price/performance. She who hesitates and all that

Sold out I think
