Sony DSC-RX100 - iso100 - f/5.0 1/60 sec - Michael Grobe

The guy got dangerously close to the edge. At this height a gust of wind could throw you off balance. Just one more of these common occasions, where it is clear that the assessment of risks here is not at the level I am used to.
Captured the shot right out of an office window, Mumbai in the mists in background, with the fabulous
Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100.
This little pocketable camera is now with me almost always, when I can't or won't carry the bigger DSLR gear.

The gear used to create this image:

Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100: best pocket camera with professional image quality. Beats everything else at the same small pocketable size.

Adobe
Lightroom 4: the best tool for image management and manipulation on Windows and Macintosh.

Sony DSC-RX100 - iso125 - f/4.9 1/1250 sec - Michael Grobe

Heading out early morning on Hollywood Blvd to catch the first sunlight. Waited 5 years for this little camera to come out: The
Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100
For the first time a pocketable little camera has image quality to satisfy even demanding professionals. So far I refused to take any point-and-shoot-small-pocket-camera on the road, since the image quality was always so disappointing, that I wouldn't want to shoot with it. This has changed now, the little Sony Cybershot DSC-RX100 shoots RAW with a 20.2MP 1" Exmor CMOS Low-Light Sensor and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T Lens.
The files coming off this camera are astounding for it's size and don`t have to hide compared to what I am used to see off a standard DSLR. They hold up very well until ISO 3200, so you can use this little gem for night shooting as well.
All that available in a camera, that really fits into a jeans pocket. Love it. Almost always with me now.

This is the original uncropped image, so the one above is already heavily cropped and a 100% 1:1 pixel crop to show the resolving power of the camera.
