Settings used on Sony RX100 (mk3)

Question

I am going to carry out a shoot indoors just using available lighting (no flash) and would like some advice from other users of RX100's who have done this already.

 

What settings give you the best results handheld to produce a workable RAW file?

 

Do you use M,S,A,P, or gold or green camera setting?

 

Thank you in advance for any replies.

 

Allan

My A58 is fine at 3200 so you should  be able to go at least that far.

 

Maybe I'm doing something wrong.. I have a RX100M3 and nearly always shoot in A mode. I don't like pushing ISO past 400.. even at 400 I am usually having to apply significant noise reduction... 3200 ISO I would be sceptical about getting past QC.

 

@Allan Bell If it's not too late, my suggestion would be to go try a load of shots around your home or another suitable indoor space in advance and try the different settings... find out what works and what doesn't so that when you need to get the shit, you already know what settings to use!

@Allan Bell

I'd simply assumed that the newer sensor was at least as good at high ISO as the A58's. Sorry if I'm wrong. I've been getting downsized 3200s past QC with the appropriate NR.

RAWs, of course- the previous A55 could sometimes squeak through at 3200 in twilight mode (the one that merges a number of jpegs) but I've never needed to use it with the A58.

Thanks Matt. I can go up to 800 ISO with the Mk3. It is coming to the point where I will have to do a thorough test of all settings. Have done a trial but got variable results. Off we go again.
