I really think you should scrap the whole "use case" idea, because you have failed to make any reasonable use of it in any of your reviews, and this one borders with embarrassment.

I've long considered the lens quality a deciding factor in these types of cameras. Matt, from YouTube channel DIY Perks, has shared how he managed to get more from the camera, first through watercooling his R5, then through more conventional means. Wait! Yes, I have my own company.

It's an ample capture rate for a pocketable camera, and even if you fill up the buffer, you'll only have to wait about 7 seconds for all of the images to write to memory, assuming you are using a decent SD card like the 95MBps SanDisk we used to test the camera's speed. The equivalent aperture figure gives a clear idea of how two lenses compare in terms of depth-of-field. I had a Sony RX100 (1) and it smokes every 1" Powershot for breakfast...

For me, this adds the 1" sensor and I'm thrilled. The additional weight of the RX100M3 size pulls shorts down to one side versus a lighter camera. I think their older p&s offerings were better than this overpriced garbage.
