My Sony RX100 review

Unread post by bakubo »

In 2018 I bought an RX100m1.5 (RX100 with the new 2.0 firmware), but then the control wheel stopped working. I have owned 3 Sony cameras (A700, A100, RX100) and all 3 in a short time developed control wheel problems. I have owned many cameras from Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, etc. and none of them had problems. All 3 of my Sony cameras are paperweights though. Here is my RX100 review -- before the control wheel died:

And an update after the control wheel problem:

This is just my experience and, obviously, many other people have had good luck, I suppose, with their Sony cameras. The A700, A900, etc. were notorious for control wheel problems with many reports. I haven't kept up to date in the last few years to know about other models. This guy says many of his Sony cameras also have control wheel problems:
