    I have purchased a copy of this book and have found to be very helpful. However I have a problem with changing the date and time. Your book suggest that a setting for this can be found in the setup menu 4. On my RX10 iii the fourth panel of the setup menu does not have the date/time option that is shown in the book. Can this be found somewhere else in the menu system?

      On my RX10 III, the version sold for the United States market, Date/Time Setup is on screen 4 of the Setup menu, which is the menu marked by the toolbox icon, as shown here:

      If you have a camera that was sold for a different part of the world, it’s possible that the menu items are in different locations, but I would not know exactly where to tell you to find it. It should not be hard to locate this menu option on another panel of the Setup menu.

      Thanks for your quick response. One of the options I tried was having the dial on M and I double checked the shutter setting, which was on Auto. I also tried it with the shutter set to Mechanical and Electronic to see if that would change anything. So I must have a different setting that’s causing the Bulb to not appear. I’m only on Chapter 4 so haven’t finished setting the camera up, but wi try your suggestion. Thanks again.

        Another possibility is that Drive Mode is set to continuous shooting or another setting other than single shooting. You can press the Left button and then make sure the top option on the Drive Mode menu, for single shooting, is selected.

          Problem solved. I called Sony, and it turns out that the bulb setting doesn’t show up when you’re in auto ISO. I usually set my camera at ISO 100 for nature photography, but I had it in auto ISO. Once I put it into ISO 100, the bulb setting showed up. Thanks again for your suggestions has everything helps in my learning how to use this new camera.

    Thanks. I just didn’t look far enough. I assumed the cog icon was the settings menu. I see now the toolbox icon is the place. Makes sense. I should have read your book more closely. Of course, it was right there.

    Hi,

    I just purchased the RX10 III and your book, and have read the first 3 chapters so far (really helpful book). No matter what mode I put the camera in (P, M, A, S) I cannot see a bulb setting past the 30″ setting — the dial won’t go past 30″. I purchased my camera in the U.S. Was that setting possibly in the RX10 II but Sony alleviated it from the III? Thanks for the great resources of your book and this blog.

      The BULB setting is available only in Manual exposure mode, with the mode dial set to the M position. Also, it is available only if Shutter Type, on screen 4 of the Custom menu, is set to Auto or Mechanical. It’s possible there are some other settings that could conflict with the BULB setting, so you could try a general reset of the camera’s settings if you can’t get to BULB in M mode with Shutter Type set to Auto or Mechanical. My guess is that Shutter Type has gotten set to Electronic somehow.

      I didn’t understand this last statement fully; do you mean the mode dial is at the M position? If you still are not getting the BULB setting, then go to the last screen of the Setup menu and use the Setting Reset option to reset the camera settings. That should get rid of any conflicting setting so you can get to the BULB setting.
