Controlling Exposure Compensation in Manual Modes with the Panasonic Lumix ZS200/TZ200 Camera

I have just posted to YouTube a short video on how to control exposure compensation in the manual exposure modes (for stills and video) with the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200 camera, which is known as the TZ200 in some areas. Normally, you use the Up cursor button on the back of the camera, which is assigned as the exposure compensation button. In the manual modes, though, that button does not work for that purpose. For still photography in M mode, you can use the Quick Menu to adjust exposure compensation. When recording a movie, though, in Creative Video mode with Exposure Mode set to Manual Exposure, you have to set the Control Ring to adjust exposure compensation. To do that, you use the Ring/Dial Set option on screen 3 of the Custom menu.

More information about this and other topics is found in my book, Photographer’s Guide to the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200/TZ200, which will be available by late June 2018.

Sony RX10 IV Minimum Focus Distance

I have just uploaded to YouTube a short video that illustrates one possibly confusing point about the minimum focus distance of the Sony DSC-RX10 IV camera. Specifically, that minimum distance is longer in the middle of the camera’s zoom range than it is at either the wide-angle or telephoto end of the zoom range. I came across this fact while writing my recent book, Photographer’s Guide to the Sony DSC-RX10 IV, and I thought it was worthwhile to post a video that shows how this fact affects the camera’s focusing behavior.

Infrared Photography with Sony RX10 IV Camera

I am in the process of finishing my guide book for the Sony DSC-RX10 IV camera, which I hope to have published by mid-December. Today I checked to see how well the camera does at taking infrared photos using a Hoya R72 infrared filter. (The camera uses a 72mm filter, by the way, coincidentally the same number as the filter number.)

Of course, the camera is not designed for infrared photography, so you need to use long shutter speeds to let enough infrared light in through the dark red filter. So, this type of photography is really only suited for stationary subjects such as landscapes. It works best with green trees, grass, and the like, along with blue skies and clouds. But my tests showed that the camera can take this sort of infrared photograph. I am posting an example here, which is also included in my upcoming book. This image was taken in Manual exposure mode with a shutter speed of 4 seconds at f/5.6 and ISO manually set at 1250.
