Photographer's Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100 IV
This book is the larger-sized paperback version of Photographer's Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100 IV. This version of the book contains the same content as the earlier version, which was published in September 2015 with dimensions of 8.5 by 8.5 inches (216 by 216 mm). The new version of the book, which replaces the original version, is being published at a size of 8.5 by 11 inches (216 by 280 mm) in order to present more information on each page, which keeps related images closer to the text they illustrate and reduces the page count, making the book easier to manage. The newly published book is a complete guide to using the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV camera, one of the most advanced, but still pocketable, cameras available. With this book, author Alexander White provides users of the RX100 IV with a manual covering all aspects of the camera's operation. Using a tutorial-like approach, the book shows beginning and intermediate photographers how to accomplish things with the RX100 IV, and explains when and why to use the camera's many 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 features of the RX100 IV that are new for this model, including its electronic shutter, faster continuous shooting, 4K video recording, and ability to shoot video at up to 960 frames per second for super slow-motion playback. The book includes more than 450 color photographs that illustrate the camera's controls, display screens, and menus. The images also provide examples of photographs taken using the RX100 IV's Scene mode, with settings optimized for subjects such as landscapes, sunsets, portraits, and action shots; and the Creative Style and Picture Effect menu options, with settings for altering the appearance of images. The book also provides introductions to topics such as street photography, astrophotography, and digiscoping.
