I am 60 yrs old and I have Nikon DSLR professional camera with heavy zoom lens,on outdoor photography.I have to carry this camera with heavy accessories.After a period of two or three hours my left hand were started paining. I was searching for this RX 100 type option since many days, and one day I had came across RX 100 in Better Photography magazine.I read the complete article and came to know this is it,immediately I purshased it .i.e.on 12 February 2012,I got excellent results and I am using it regularly for outdoor as well as indoor photography,very good invention by SONY,keeping aside my Nikon DSLR. On one fine day.i.e.on 20 February 2015, my RX 100,stops working properly i.e. LCD shops showing images.I rushed to SONY Service outlet and shown the camera.Keeping in mind that they will charge for repairs, being third year from purchase,and surprised to know that it was in warranty,And still the warranty is valid up to March 2016. Hats off to SONY!! And my camera has been serviced properly and again my RX 100 is giving excellent results.Thanks to SONY!!
