If you want to travel light while capturing every moments, SONY RX100 is the best choice!
While planning our honey moon trip to North Europe, I was considering which camera to bring, my SONY a99 coupled with 24-70 and a ultra wide sayang 14mm would be such a burden of weight. So I’ve decided to go with SONY RX100 IV from Shashinki.com, after several research and price comparison.
SONY RX100 IV equipped with Zeiss lens, with a focal length of 8.8mm- 25.7mm, aperture f1.8-2.8
