sony rx100 vs canon s110 is the 10K price difference worth it?
« on: February 16, 2013, 09:02:53 AM »
I need a pocket camera that can fit my shirt or jeans pocket that i can take to parties or dinners. I have a Olympus OMD but it's a hassle to bring a carry bag just for it. So I narrowed my choices to the Sony RX100 and Canon S110.

The Sony RX100 is the best compact point and shoot camera that can fit in your shirt or jeans pocket hands down with its   1 inch sensor similar to the Nikon 1 series. Other similar models can't compare with its high iso performance according to most online reviews, forums, and sample images posted online. Only downside is its price at P24,200 gray market and P30,000 sony philippines.

On the other hand, the Canon S110 is also a great and small camera with a smaller sensor. Reviews says it gets really grainy after iso 800. Spec wise, it won't compare to the RX100 but the price is only P14,000 or 40% cheaper.

I'll use the camera for mostly low light indoor night shots like parties or dinners. Is the P10,000 difference worth it to get the RX100?

Would you put a price on something described as "Being the best hands down"? Budget constraints na lang ang pinag-uusapan diyan. Kung kakayanin siyempre sa pinakamaganda na.

You would'nt look at the RX100 if it's not within your budget, right? And actually the answer to your dilemma is already written in your post if you read it carefully:

RX100 = "best compact and point and shoot, hands down". "other similar models can't compare with its high ISO performance".

Canon S110 = "with smaller sensor." "gets really grainy after ISO 800'.


then you said that you'll use the camera for mostly low light indoor night shots..

- Now, would you rather have extra money on your pocket, get grainy photos and sit for hours infront of a computer trying to post process those shots or buy the camera that would meet your requirements, be rewarded with magnificent photos, and have the big grin on your face for making the right decision?

ME? I know where I would put my wallet, and I hope you'd get my drift?  ;D

Thanks for your insights ... I guess you really can't compare the S110 to the RX100 with regards to pricing versus size. Although they are both similar in size, the RX100 is totally different inside with a 1 inch sensor. That alone should justify the price P10K difference. So RX100 it is.

By the way, the gray market units are PAL with 50i video recording resolution while the local warrantied units are NTSC with 60p resolution. But price difference is P6,000.

Question: Aside from the 3 year warranty and freebies that come with the local warrantied NTSC version, is there a difference in video recording quality between the two? A friend told me getting NTSC only matters if your TV is NTSC specific but most TV's nowadays are LED, LCD, or Plasma and will play anything you throw at it unlike during the 80s-90s where there were compatibility issues.

The RX-100 is much better for low light than Canon S110. I just bought one to replace my old Canon S90. Images on the S90 aren't too good in low light situations at above ISO 800.  The RX-100 of course doesn't perform as well as my Sony NEX 5N but the output I've seen is better than my old Nikon D80 with a standard 18-55 kit lens.

For the video stuff, I think that PAL pretty much only matters if you have a PAL or NTSC only TV. I think but I'm not sure that almost all TVs in Europe are PAL while the ones in North America are NTSC.  I don't think it matters too much especially if you are viewing on a PC or computer as most video playing programs like VLC can probably handle both formats. I also did a search about the difference between the two formats so please read this link http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/34849900

I would agree with everyone's comment that it is worth the price difference coz it seems you know more than the average when it comes to cameras.  Bottom line is how picky you will be with your images. 

I decided to splurge on the RX100 bec of excellent image quality IQ and High ISO capability which i hope will be above the 2/3" or 1/1.6" sensors for a long time if not forever.

Good luck on your choice

Got a RX100 at P31,500 at Sony Festival Mall at 6 months deferred payment. It came with a free USB 2,000mh usb battery pack that can be used for charging anything that connects via usb like the camera itself, phones, ipods and an Sony 8GB memory (class 4). It's 6K more expensive than the gray market units but got it on instalment (30K cash) plus its NTSC (60p compared to 50i for the gray market units) plus 3 years warranty. I figured, with the freebies, the price difference was only 3k but with 3 years warranty.

I'm satisfied with my purchase. Before taking the plunge, I borrowed my sisters RX100 and S100 to compare and there's a huge difference in low light shots. I also considered the LX7 since it's only a little more expensive than the S110 and has a 1.4 lens which makes up for the smaller sensor size for great low light shots but it's not as pocketable as the RX100.

Pocketability was my main priority.
