Peter Jordan Posted March 16, 2014 Share Posted March 16, 2014 In response to a question from BettyLaRue on another thread, Here is my response: Hi Betty, It has taken a good while to get consistently good results with the RX100, but recently I have got it working really well. I always use Aperture priority. I now tend to use the wider apertures (f 2.8) when the focal length allows it. In good light, you just have to watch out that the shutter speed has not reached it’s upper limit. If it has it flashes and you stop down some. Under the Fn button I have the following functions: Focus Mode – set to AFS ISO – usually on Auto 200 – 800, but turned down to 80 in bright light. White Balance – Normally Auto Aspect Ratio – in 3:2 – any cropping done in PP Image Size – 20M Creative style – Landscape IQ RAW+J The front ring is set to control zoom – the power zoom is OK but moves rather too fast for fine adjustments which are better done on the Ring Apart from Aperture Priority, the other setting I have used, when shooting in the dark, is SCN set to “Hand held Twilight” - you pick this setting on page 5 of the camera part of the Menu. I have a few pictures on Alamy taken using this. DD6DXC for example. I have the screen brightness set to Manual +2, but change it to Sunny Weather (when I get some) I have a Kindle Book “Photographers Guide to the Sony DSC – RX100” by Alexander White. There is a lot of information there but you have to dig for it. There is a huge amount of settings that can be tinkered with on this camera so the book is big. Apart from the things mentioned above I have everything left on default. From your post, I see you are concerned about Noise. I PP in Lightroom and use settings recommended by David Kilpatrick – let me know if you want these. Otherwise I try to dial in some positive exposure compensation when it is dark say +0.7. You find the adjustment under the bottom Button of the 4 way controller. For well exposed good-light images I often use the JPEGS but have to go into RAW when fine (or even coarse) adjustments are needed. Hope this helps….
