What do you recommend for people who want to A) not really learn how to use cameras, and yet B) want top-notch pictures, and ideally C) not carry around anything nearly as big as a dslr...? Let em explain. - A guy walks up to me at work because he knows I like cameras. - He complains that he hates the images from his camera phone, and says he wants to buy an actual camera. - He asks what I have, and I show him the X100. "Can I see some pictures from it?" Sure. "Zoom all the way in. Oh that's NICE." - He wants one, for a few seconds at least. So at this point he's pixel peeping, looking for tiny details in the corners. - I show him the studio shot comparo tool in dpreivew, he jotts down the root url. He can immediately see the difference between X20 files, for example, and X100 files. He wants the better images, he says. - He then wants to see more of my pictures. - He is drawn to every shot with bokeh - the more the better, pretty much. - I briefly explain what it is, and generally how to get it. His eyes gloss over slightly, and I realize he's probably not going to ever really understand it. So now I understand more what I'm dealing with. He likes the look that comes with bigger sensors and faster glass, but he's probably not going ever operate a camera outside Full Auto mode. ...I said "check out the Sony RX100." But I really don't know all the options out there. What would the lot of you have said?
