    I really like the idea of wireless camera control for some better camera control that has been mentioned here. Taking hunting pictures on solo trips of myself can be challenging without being able to to see the view finder to help make subtle changes. This gives me camera control remotely up to 150 ft away on my iPhone and iPad or for those with similar Android devises. It will come in handy for not only backcountry photography but I'm hoping it will help get some out of the box shots when I'm out hunting, landscapes, wildlife, night photography, movie, macro, HDR, etc.... with my camera. This got a editors pick in Outdoor Photographer. I'll be using CamRanger on my Canon DLSR. Right now it's only for select Nikon and Canon DLSR cameras but it's some real cool remote technology. I'll attach a couple quick clips on what is does but there is more at the site for those that might want that control for their camera too.

    I know most DLSR cameras are not lightweight cameras but I'm takeing it more on backcountry trips these days because I'm able to do a bit better job with my photrgraphy.

    Rockchucker, I use a Sony Cybershot. It takes great trophy photos. Its has enough pixels to make enlargements look good also.

    I'd go broke from it if I didn't have a college fund running for the kiddo.

    I tried almost everything and nothing really came close to the RX 100. It shoots in RAW, has a 1" sensor, a somewhat easy format and works well for digi scoping. It also weighs less when compared to cameras of equal photo quality.

    So to me, if you can afford it, the RX is an easy choice.

    I can post some photos up from the RX if you'd like.

    I'm digging this thread back up....

    So the Sony RX100 is the top of the line choice. Lets focus on a different set of criteria:

    Under $350
    Under 9 oz
    Takes magazine quality trophy shots and landscapes / fillers.

    A remote or wireless control to a smartphone would be great, but not necessary. I've been making the self timer work for years, guess I can continue.

    What fits the bill?

    A used and milled,lightened rx100!

    I think the qualifications are bit stretched to find something in your liking. Cameras are a lot like binos,spotting scopes and any other piece of gear. Your going to get what you pay for. I picked up a used rx100 for around 450. After my wife lost the first one... Sore subject.

    I picked up a gently used RX100-i on ebay for a little less than $300. It has been awesome so far. I digiscope with a 65 mm Swarovksi and the DCA adapter (I think it's been discontinued), it wasn't much of a problem at all to find attachments to go from the camera to the adapter.
