    1) Is the front of the lens threaded for adding filters?

    2) A zoom lens tends to move air in and out as they zoom, which increases the possibility of getting dust on the sensor. Is there any protection built in to stop this?

    3) Assuming that there is no way to stop dust from entering into the camera (which is true for all cameras) can I clean the sensor myself?

    This camera has the potential to become an excellent pro-level event and wedding system. It’s size, weight, build quality and the constant aperture Zeiss zoom range are outstanding. I can’t wait to see its photos. Sincerely, Michael

      Hi Michael!

      Yes the front of the lens is threaded and it’s 62mm diameter.

      Also, the RX10 is not designed or recommended for home cleaning of the sensor. Should any service be needed for the camera, we always recommend going through our Technical Support Team.

    Have the problems with the External interface to Sony Flash units been fixed on the RX-10? On the a99, there were issues with multiple flash units and delays in the flash timings. Please advise.

    Has the new Flash system interface specifications (introduced on the a99) been released to third party flash unit makers?

    Also, on the -60 Sony flash there were reported many instances of the units overheating and/or cutting out due to overheat warnings. Please advise.

      Great question. The team is always continuing to improve upon features and capabilities of our camera models. Owners of theRX10 shouldn’t encounter any delay challenges when using 2 flash (Main & Remote such as F20).
      Currently there is not a specification document or API available for third parties. While the camera does enable third party flash attachments, the flash control function would be disabled.

    Great innovation. Hats off. Please consider developing a video camera based on this sensor and lens routes. I propose the following:
    - Two T/2.0 zooms (if possible), wide angle + telephoto (24-85, 80-200 equvalent)
    - 5″ 1080p multitouch screen, preferably OLED
    - full stills functionality (dials, modes + flash support)
    - 10/12 bit XAVC codec
    - wireless control and live monitoring via smartphones and tablets
    - detailed picture settings prior to compression (customizable 3 point gamma curves, 6 vector hues + saturation, > onboard paintbox for custom looks, tunable by multitouch)
    - built ND filters
    - OIS
    - touch focus functionality
    - environmentally sealed housing
    - size with lens not larger than PMW-100 XD CAM,
    - monitor placement is not crucial on the handle for compact handheld shooting, traditional body placement enables more practicality and portability.

    The NX10 has supplanted my A77 system because its quality, size & versatility. I’d really like to learn all about about its features for both still photography and videoing. But the only guide besides the one on Sony’s website is inside the camera which doesn’t take the place of something I can hold in my hands and refer to or an e-book on a laptop/tablet. In contacting several prominent authors who have done Sony guides in the past, they’ve indicated that they will not be doing an RX10 guide because of a lack of interest/requests. While I realize it’s a new camera and needs time to gain a foothold, Sony needs to either produce one in-house or team with a 3rd party who will write and publish one.

    Dear Sony,
    Finally someone dared to come up with what large size of the market need! Great new features! Just what a real bridge camera should be!
    Breaking the chains of old dslr manufacturer who keep wanting to milk the cow by forcing 2-3 lenses on people who prefer decent pics quality.
    Great one-handed camera for parents of younger kids who need to carry just enough bags and packs and and still wanna run after the kids and can not cope with dslr size and complications (or light-travelers, etc), yet gives us great quality for home and semi professional use.
    Suggestion: can you do zoom up to 300mm next year? We can accept a bit larger lense in return.

    Best regards
