Sample Photos from the Sony DSC-RX100 IV Camera

The photos in the gallery on this page are ones I took for Photographer’s Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100 IV. I may add some others that did not make it into the book.

    Hi, I bought your Sony RX100iv book and I also bought the RX10 book because I bought the RX10ii book and that’s not out yet. I also have your RX100ii book and I loved that.

    Can you answer a question or include this information when you publish the RX10ii book?
    I’m using the slow motion 960FPS and there’s a 1:27 delay while the buffer writes to the card. I’m using a 90MBS card. But I tried some of the 40MBS cards and it was the same. I can’t find out if I buy a 280MB/s card if it will make any difference and cut down the 1:27 wait time. Sony has no info and slow mo is why I bought the camera. I works great. Good purchase. Now if Sony will supply info, that will be great.

    Also you may or may not know that the smart remote PC app says it doesn’t work with HFR, but it works fine and I called Sony and asked abut the RM-VPR1 remote and they checked with a supervisor and said it won’t work with HFR. And it works perfectly too. Just good info. Love your books.

      Hi, Drew — I don’t have a definitive answer to your question, but my guess is that the speed of the card would not make much difference, if any, in the speed of processing of an HFR sequence. I use a very fast card, and it still takes a long time. I don’t know the exact time, but it may well be about 1:27, as it is for you. I’ll see if there’s any more information out there, but I’m not sure there is. Also, thanks for the information about the remote app and the remote device working with HFR.

        Hi Alex, I just received the VCT-VPR1 Sony remote tripod and its remote also works perfectly with the RX10ii. I also found a tutorial on extending the cable (soldering 8 wires) and I’m doing that now so I’ll have a 20′ cable. So you know, the start and stop Video recording works perfectly. But you still need to hit the center button first on the camera. But with the remote the camera is much more useful for a single photographer. I’ve been popping water balloons, lighting matches and capturing hummingbirds, seagulls and pigeons. Now I’m off to hammer on watermelons, light bulbs and more. Do let me know if there’s any way to cut down the 1:27 wait between shots. It’s the only problem I have with the camera.

          Hi, Drew — Sounds like you’re taking full advantage of the slow-motion feature — that’s great! If I dig up any information about the wait time I’ll let you know, though I still suspect that is just the required processing time.

      I will be doing a new book for the RX100 V, which I hope to have published by early next year, January if all goes well. I first have to finish another book, and will get to the RX100 V as soon as possible after that. I will post further information at this site as things develop.
