RX-100 photos from today

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I bought a Sony RX-100 and Nauticam housing a few days ago, as a replacement for my Canon S95 in Ikelite housing.

Here are some shots of a dive(freedive) in the estuary in Perth Western Australia today.

I used a FIX UWL-04 fisheye lens, which had a tiny bit of vignetting, and 2x INON UCL-165M67 for the sea horse, which seemed to have soft corners but was ok in the center.


Photos are Jpg's from the camera, with only minor 'levels' adjustments in Photoshop. I still have to sort out a Raw converter.

I am very impressed with the crazy amount of detail, see the 100% crops.

Flash recharge took noticeably longer than my S95.


Cheers, Xander

did you use the camera flash or strobe?


you could adjust the flash level in the setting to reduce the flash recharge time....

I can't find any manual flash setting in the manual unfortunately.


Specifically on the RX100 recycle time, how bad is it?


Check out imaging resources review:




I quote from that (quite good) review:


Flash recycling was a significant shortcoming of the RX100, at 7.2 seconds from a full discharge. While not at all uncommon in small-body cameras with reasonable flash ranges, this is still a significant step down from what enthusiasts are accustomed to with either high-end (and bulky) point & shoots or interchangeable-lens cameras.


How bad is this in reality? I understand that if you have strobes in TTL mimic mode, the camera would not use up it's full power flash. However, I normally use them in pre-flash suppress mode and manual flash settings. I think this would mean maximum power each time, right? Anyone who have tested this yet?
