Getting the Most from Sony's Pocketable Digital Camera
This book is a complete, fully illustrated guide to using the Sony DSC-RX100 III camera, one of the most advanced, but still pocketable, cameras available. With this book, author Alexander White provides users of the RX100 III with a manual covering all aspects of the camera. Using a tutorial-like approach, the book shows beginning and intermediate photographers how to accomplish things with the RX100 III, and explains when and why to use the camera's numerous features. The book provides details about the camera's shooting modes as well as its menu options for shooting, playback, setup, and special effects. The book covers all of the new features of the RX100 III, including its unique pop-up electronic viewfinder, tilting LCD screen, built-in neutral density filter, and enhanced capabilities for camera control and image transfer over a wireless network. The book includes more than 400 color photographs that illustrate the camera's controls, display screens, and menus. The images also provide examples of photographs taken using the RX100 III's Scene mode, with settings optimized for subjects such as landscapes, sunsets, portraits, and action shots; the Creative Style and Picture Effect menu options, with settings for altering the appearance of images; and features for continuous shooting and shooting in dim light. The book also provides introductions to more advanced topics such as infrared photography, astrophotography, and digiscoping. The book includes a full discussion of the video features of the RX100 III, which can shoot HD video with stereo sound, and which offers manual control of exposure and focus during movie recording as well as an upgraded video format, XAVC S. In three appendices, the book discusses accessories for the RX100 III, including cases, external flash units, and filter adapters, and includes a list of websites and other resources for further information.
