Hi Jaysun,
I've never purchased from them before and was completely unaware of that practice or their shady reputation. What a bummer but thanks for the heads up amigo! So glad I hadn't pulled the trigger on that yet.

And you don't get any warranty from Massdrop! So be careful! Only 30 days.
I am a little confused... How do I make calls on this?
This is a decent camera, but for a bit more you can have the RX100 III, which is a great camera... primarily as it has an viewfinder (EVF) built in. Anyone who actively takes a lot of pictures will tell you that you might as well use your phone if you're trying to compose via a screen. Look for:
  • Solid image and video quality
  • Built-in Auto ND filter
  • Built-in EVF
  • Bright, sharp lens
  • Ergonomics significantly improved

Oh I see, no worries- I was thinking this could be a good compact camera for my mother who just wants nice point and shoot shots... the viewfinder was a good note though!
AfroJosh
For your mom? Get the 90... https://www.massdrop.com/buy/sony-cyber-shot-dsc-hx90v-digital-camera Has a viewfinder with a diopter adjustment so she can set it to her eye. Takes great photos and less than the RX100ii
Imported brand or USA Model? Will this have Sony warranty?
How would this compares to Canon G9X mark II? Its going for 430 at B&H currently.
MEJazz
G7X is more of a direct comparison, and I am going to return mine to get this one. The viewfinder ends up being pretty important for me.
If I was to join this drop the warranty would be with Massdrop? How does this work? Anyone have experience with Massdrop handling a warranty?
I had the the original RX100 and it's so beautiful as a pocket go to. I love the second one because they finally have wifi and nfc on it. The only thing the RX100 III has on it is the Electronic Viewfinder Pop-Up. Which isn't a deal breaker at all. IV has slowmotion (1000fps) and 4k. and the V has ridiculous fps burst speeds and autofocusing. Image quality is pretty much all the same: amazing.
Any experience with shipping to Serbia?
If I purchased this today (or tomorrow)...approximately when would I receive it?

That's.... about 6 months?

These comments are 2 years old, the current drop is expected to ship in 3 weeks lol.
From past experience, I know that 28mm is not wide enough for me. The III, IV, and V versions all use a wider lens (24mm instead of 28mm) which is a more useful focal length. Hopefully, someday we will get a drop for the III or IV or V.
cheapbutgreat
It should be noted if you're getting the V, they don't sell it. Instead they offer the VA with some improvements taken from VI.
Super excited to get this Drop going. Spread the word to your friends that are in need of a KILLER compact/pocket camera! Just need a few more people to join to get to the lowest price point.
We've just received additional insight from the vendor regarding the group's order and here's where we're at:
Shortly after the drop ended we placed the group's order and the vendor confirmed the available quantities. We were later informed that all units had been prepared for shipment and were en route to our warehouse. Soon after, we learned that this notification and tracking was actually for a similar order and the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IIIs were not included as a part of it .
The vendor acknowledged the mistake and only now informed us that they are unable to provide an accurate timetable for when these cameras will be able to ship. With this uncertainty in mind, we have decided the best course of action for the community is to cancel the drop and issue full refunds to each member. This decision is never an easy one and we have put future drops with this vendor on hold until they demonstrate process changes to eliminate this issue from happening again.
Refunds will be applied to your payment method within 1-3 business days. If you'd like further information about how we handle situations like this, you can visit the following link: https://helpdesk.massdrop.com/hc/en-us/articles/217618637-Why-did-Massdrop-cancel-the-drop-
Thanks once again for your patience and support of the Photography community. Your involvement is so valuable as we continue to grow and improve the experience for all members.

Hot shoe got removed since II or III IIRC.
lastzero
Mark II was the only one with a hot shoe and that's the one I wrote a review of. Not sure the point of your comment.
We've just checked in with the vendor again regarding the group's order and unfortunately they provided us with some less than ideal news. Despite initially informing us that the shipment was en route to our warehouse in New Jersey, it appears that the tracking information they provided was actually for a different order and the units for this drop are still awaiting pickup. We've relayed this frustration back to the vendor are they've ensured us that processes are in place to prevent this from occurring in the future. We will remain in close contact until everything is indeed on its way to our warehouse and update the group with any news we receive.
Again, we certainly understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (massdrop.com/transactions).
You can expect an update from us on 4/19 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (massdrop.com/helpcenter).
The vendor informed us that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive 4/8.
Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, but we will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process and notify you all if anything causes delay.
Thank you for your patience. Expect an update from us on 4/11 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (massdrop.com/helpcenter).
We've just heard back from the vendor about the latest status of the group's order and it appears that it's taken them longer to receive and ship the necessary units than originally planned. They assure us that these units are arriving soon and should be en route to our warehouse in New Jersey shortly. As always, we will monitor the situation closely and update the group right away once this shipment is on its way to us.
We understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (massdrop.com/transactions).
You can expect an update from us on 4/6 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Wasn't there supposed to be an update by now?
We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse. We will update the group as soon as these are on the way.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 4/1 or sooner if something comes up.
We've been in touch with the vendor and they've let us know that they are still working to gather and pack the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is en route to us!
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 3/29 or sooner if something comes up.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 3/28.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 3/24.

What about shipping to chicago?
Team mass drop , how long does it take to arrive after being shipped?
SzymonBak
@SzymonBak
Shipping times will depend highly on the destination but I can tell you that we typically ship out of New Jersey.
hi, why this drop can't be shipped internationally?
nico_624
@nico_624
It can be shipped Internationally but its quite expensive because of new shipping policy changes made by our carrier. I will enable shipping internationally if someone in the community requests it.
Hi, I was wondering how long does it usually take to arrive after the estimated ship date? Like, for example, to NY?
diego_AHB
@diego_AHB
The time varies but given that our fulfillment center is in New Jersey and the hypothetical destination was New York, not that long.
There are times when shipping can be affected by outside forces but you can be sure we will keep you updated in the discussion.
@JaySun
I live in US. Thanks, let me know.
Team Massdrop, can you offer a squaretrade warranty along with this drop?

Any updates? I'm very interested in this drop.
Vineet
@Vineet
We are still in discussions with a vendor but I understand you are interested in this drop but want the protection plan from SquareTrade.
Darn it, why can't they include the MK IV option.....
MNX.WW
They did the m4 a couple of weeks ago
It's unfortunate it's Gray Market like the latest m4 drop was, I'd have paid a bit more for the US warrantied one.

That's why I said I would have paid the same price as the last drop, I just happened to miss that one when it was live. Either way, I've got a US version on it's way from Best Buy. Figured open box is a chance I'll take since it comes with the full US warranty.
what was the price on the US spec? wondering if i should jump on this or wait for the next US spec drop.
Exciting news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to contact us via “Contact Support” button in your transaction page: https://www.massdrop.com/transactions
We're also on Instagram! We'd love to see the photos of drops you've received and you can do that by following @Massdrop and tagging your pictures #massdrop. https://instagram.com/massdrop
It's a go! The order for the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 II or III was placed just after the drop came to an end. Now our vendor will be working hard to prepare it for shipment to each of you.
As soon as we receive word from the vendor about the shipping schedule, we will update you all with that information.
Look forward to another update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 12/21 or earlier if anything comes up.
