RX100 M3: New wrappers for 1080p video, will it work with iOS?
This sad puppy at 1920 x 1080 resolution feels the same way I do that I can't transfer 1080p video from my RX100 to my iPad.
The RX100 M1 and M2 both recorded 1080p video, however Sony decided to encode video in their AVCHD format. This meant that if I recorded video on the go at true 1080p, then I wouldn't be able to import or edit it on my iPad (iOS doesn't support AVCHD).

What are your favorite gadgets right now?
It's been awhile! Let's talk about your favorite gadgets that you're using right now. Here's my list -- it's not necessarily the latest and greatest, but this is what helps me get through the day.
1. iPhone 5 - Yeah, yeah. A new edition is coming out soon with a new coat of paint and an oil change. But this thing is critical for me being connected each day. I'm sure if I was using a different phone, it'd also be at the top of this list.... Read more →
