    The RX100 will have noticeably better image quality, especially in low light (less noise and greater dynamic range). It will also offer shallower DOF (for those creamy blurred backgrounds) at max aperture because the RX100 has a much larger sensor. You can get an optional wired remote or use your android phone as a wireless remote.

    Cobbhunts,

    Your camera has too much zoom for a digiscoping camera. Cameras with a 5x or less zoom work best for digiscoping.

    Thanks for the input!! I'll be leary of that when I buy one for this trip. It looks like that's what I am going to have to do.

    That helps. I use an Iphone...will that run the RX100? If not then it's going to be tough for me to justify the extra $250 above the G15. I'm not a pro photographer after all. And if I was I'd probably suck up the weight gain and take a DSLR.

    Recently there was an article someone posted up on not using the cell phone as your hunt camera, mainly due to not being able to blow up the photo enough for print. ( Yes I understand the last two posts were about using one as a remote not the camera). My point is this...

    What cameras do the Eastmans use on their hunts that also produce print quality images. I know some of them are not backpack type, but I am sure that some are.

    Eastmans....or Eastmans camera guys... pipe up and tell us what camera you would prefer us use on these memory lane moments!!
    I hunt because......

    I have a bunch of friends who use the Canon SX50HS. They do pretty good jobs documenting trips.

    Last summer I purchased a Sony Rx100 and have been very happy with the quality of pictures I've gotten with it. Both digiscoping and directly from the camera in all sorts of lighting situations. Here are some samples of pictures taken thru my Zeiss spotting scope.

    These next set of pictures were taken direct with the RX100.
