Under the distress of worldwide Covid-19, Shanghai is currently the safe heaven of the foreigners.

I took the little Sony RX100 Mark III for a test as a street photography camera ... but it left me somewhat confused on how to feel about it:

The compactness was such a treat for me, I could almost hide it in my hand :)

I forgot it in Program mode ... and it wasn't the most inspiring how the automation made the decision of this picture.

On the back of the screen and even in the EVF the picture quality was not very inspiring ... I have not checked the JPEGs SooC as I imported the RAW files and proceeded to apply my "comfort zone" of editing "style".

But I was oooooooh so pleasantly surprised by the latitude of the files in editing ... it reminded me a lot of the RAW files I used to get from the Panny GX7 that I loved so much.

But the one, of the 2 things, that kills this camera for me as a street shooter option is the shutter lag ... I was aiming to get the bicycle right in the middle of the frame and the person (walking from right to left) in the same area to see between the 2 adverts but the camera did not respond to the speed I needed. It shot one image too early and the next one too late.

If I had only a bit more shutter speed on this image to freeze the motion ... but the 2nd problem that kills this camera as an ideal street shooter is the laggy zoom ... it's just not fast enough for me to reach to split-second opportunity.

The shadow and highlight recovery is so good I would say it's close to the 16 MP generation of Micro Four Thirds camera ... in the size of a pack of Camel (but I don't smoke)

The lens is so much sharper than I expected ... SooC looked quite soft but there's a lot of data and micro-contrast in there.

Took me a while to get used to the dual dial of the RX100 but once I got the gist of it it was easier to get the exposure that I wanted.

There is a surprising amount of crop-ability from the tiny 20 Megapickles.

I just love the colors when corrected in RAW.

Surprisingly the sensor handles the very high contrast situation ... the sun was on the opposite side and the water was mostly blown out ... with most of the shadow and highlights recovered to full data ... but there seems to be a significant amount of Chromatic Abberation, of both red-ish and green color to almost fluorescent level.

In the camera JPEG preview, the highlights and most of the picture looked blown but the RAW file was able to handle -1 EV as well as -100 Highlights with even color recovered in the reflection of the blue sky.

The Musgrove Hospital Air Ambulance, the first time I've seen it parked in front of the hospital ... not sure how good of an idea is to make a helicopter landing pad in a round-a-bout with bus traffic and plenty of pedestrians around. The distortions are from the dirty ugly thick glass of the double-decker bus window I was in.

I agree with your thoughts about the latitude of the raw files. I had an RX100 II and appreciated that the raws were quite malleable. I wouldn't go quite so far as to say it was on par with the GX7's raws, though. I never enjoyed using the camera, though. The handling was just awkward and slow for me.

I haven’t made any pictures with GX7 in years as I “accidentally” killed it 3 years ago so I was going by memory. I’m sure the GX7 would do better at higher ISO given that M4/3 sensor is larger but the dynamic range feels quite similar. Even with sharpening it feels similar as the whole image seems to get overall balanced in contrast, where for example Olympus ORF it seems to sharpened up more on contrast edges and the smooth areas seem to stay more of the same.
Where on Panasonic ARW at base ISO the sensor noise is amplified in sharpness equally and it gave smooth areas a rough look … which I eventually grew to like. I need to edit more Sony RAW files to see if it does react in a similar way.
