DPReviewTV: Sony RX100 VI The Ultimate Easy Camera

Chris and Jordan take the new Sony RX100VI out and find it to be a more useful camera than the Sony RX100V thanks to the new lens that reaches 200mm. Throughout the review they are very complementary, but keep talking about how the compact camera market is pretty dead and how the price point is hard to swallow.

They even suggest Sony introduce a RX200 line with some of the features removed from the current top of the line RX100 to keep the price down, but isn’t that the reason why Sony currently markets 6 models of the RX100. The original RX100 is down to $369 and it’s still one of my favorite pocket cameras. Still a great review/preview by the guys if you like their style.
