As much as I appreciate my Canon 80D and how it's helped me create higher quality video content, it was time to invest in another camera that would enable me to create even more content. I have decided to finally check out the highly anticipated Sony RX100 Mark V — a camera that seems to be quite popular amongst YouTubers.
While the Sony RX100 Mark V is still selling for a very expensive $948 on Amazon, it's apparently incredible at what it does. From its new lightning fast autofocus system to 4K recording capabilities, I'm excited to see what the RX100 does for my content creation. But if only the camera wasn't so damn expensive...
Similar to when I bought my Canon 80D, I decided to go the bundle route with the RX100. Needless to say, I'm so glad I did. For just $10 extra, opting for the RX100 bundle has given me so much more in the box than I would normally get if I bought the camera alone.
Below is an overview of everything included in the particular Sony RX100 Mark V bundle I purchased via Amazon:
Sony RX100 Mark V - Of course, the bundle includes the RX100 itself, as well as any other accessories that were officially packaged by Sony.
2x NP-BX1 Batteries - Per my research, the RX100 doesn't offer the best battery life, so having a spare battery or two is a must. This bundle includes two spare batteries, giving you three batteries total.
Battery Charger - What good are lithium batteries without a battery charger?
SanDisk 64GB Extreme Memory Card - SanDisk is a favorite brand of mine for memory cards. 64GB is also a sweet spot, providing you with plenty of space for storing photos and videos
Corel PaintShop Pro X9 - Worth $45 alone, PaintShop Pro X9 is professional-level photo editing software that offers a ton of features and tools that can be used to improve your photography.
Ultimaxx Pro Camera Case - This is just a basic camera case, but at least it's something to get you started. After all, you don't want to risk damaging or losing a camera that costs nearly $1,000.
12-inch Rubberized Spider Tripod - Setting up the shot while on the go will be easier thanks to this 12-inch portable tripod. It features an adjustable angle and rubberized grip for handheld usage.
Mini Tabletop Tripod - Get the perfect shot using this basic mini tripod that will take up hardly any space.
Beach Camera SD Memory Card Reader - Insert your SD card into this USB compatible reader to import photos and videos.
Micro-HDMI to HDMI Cable - Output your photos and videos to any TV or monitor that supports HDMI.
Vivitar Tri-fold Memory Card Wallet - Keep track of your memory cards using this organizer.
LCD Screen Protectors - Included with the bundle are three screen protectors to shield the screen on your RX100 from being damaged.
LCD/Lens Cleaning Pen - Easily clean the RX100's display or lens with this included cleaning tool.
Lens Cleaning Kit - This 3-piece kit includes a small bottle of cleaning solution, a microfiber cloth, and several cotton swabs.
Beach Camera Microfiber Cleaning Cloth - Pretty self explanatory.
