Thinking of getting the RX100vii for vlogging.

Recommended Posts

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

No microphone input on the previous ones though.

Aside from the mark II which could use the Multi Interface smart adapter in the hotshoe port.

Something which they should have kept in for the subsequent versions but which would have contravened whatever secret accord manufacturers have not to offer a microphone input on compact cameras.

Here in NL Mediamarkt has 'no VAT-days' going on where the RX100VA is discounted to €676,82 (regular retail prices are around 849,-; some stores have already pricematched). And Sony has just launched their cashback promotion on select camera equipment (18.10.19- 31.01.20), which knocks the price down another €100. Roughly €575 ain't bad.

The VA happens to be the last Sony RX100 cam I actually considered. I don't like giving up on light sensitivity to get a better range out of the lens (as seen in the VI/VII). The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III had come under fire of the YouTube vlogging crowd and got returned left and right due lacking C-AF performance (not just compared to 2019 competition, but even previous G7 X Mark II) and Canon's cripple hammer lack of 24p. Well... official statements state they will address both issues through firmware, adding both a C-AF fix and 24p to the cam before end of the year. Couple of things the G7 X Mark III has over the RX100VII incl. f/1.8-2.8 sensitivity (opposed to f/2.8-4.5 dropping off fast from wide) and a built-in ND-filter... so that might actually be the one to look out for.

Ah, that makes a difference.  

I guess there's always the Lav-into-smartphone and sync in post option.  In theory spending a few hundred extra is a worthwhile investment, but taking into account the fact that most vloggers are getting paid under $1 per hour, I'm not sure that investment stacks up!
