New-to-me Sony RX10 IV

09 February 2023 - 04:47 PM

I sold my Panasonic DC-FZ1000ii to MPB to partially fund a used Sony RX10 IV. Both are bridge cameras with 1" sensors but the Sony is the only camera of the genre to use phase detection autofocus. AFAIK, all others use contrast detection autofocus. It has 315 AF points covering 65% of the sensor, a burst rate of up 24 fps, and a Zeiss lens. The max aperture/focal length ranges are f/2 - f/4 and 8.8mm to 200mm, respectively. With a crop factor of 2.73, the full frame equivalent angle of view corresponds to 24mm to 600mm. I figured that the RX10 IV would be an interesting replacement for the Panasonic and a viable BIF shooter. Here are some shots from the first couple of sessions.

Before housing a restaurant, this building was home to Hope Hardware for 80 years starting in 1910. This sign painted on an alley wall is the only reminder of a business that once served a then small (and now burgeoning) North Texas city.

If I recall correctly, the idea is to include the color source image if it's available and, if the source is in color, identify the method for converting to monochrome. Also, if possible, post the shooting parameters and what camera was used.



This is the best seller of beef in our town IMO. The owner raises his own cattle.
