Photographer’s Guide to the Sony DSC-RX10 II is similar to the earlier book by Alexander White about the DSC-RX10.

The book also includes examples of images that can be taken with the camera’s shooting modes and creative settings, including Creative Style, Picture Effects, Picture Profile, HDR, and others.

If you are familiar with my earlier book for the RX10 camera, you will notice some changes in the format of the paperback book for the RX10 II. The RX10 II paperback was originally printed in a  format of 8.5 inches by 8.5 inches (216mm by 216mm). Then, for technical reasons, the size was changed again in January 2016, to 8.5 inches by 11 inches (216mm by 280mm). With the larger pages, it is possible to include more images and more text on each page using a two-column layout. The ebook formats (PDF, iPad, and Kindle) remain essentially unchanged.

    Hi Alex, I just received my shiny new RX10M3. Is there any chance I could purchase the RX10M2 pdf and get a reduced price on the forthcoming RX10M3 pdf?

        Hi Alex. I have the same questions as several of your other potential book buyers of your upcoming DSC-RX10 lll book. My camera arrived two weeks ago and takes amazing photos, however, as an old photographer with no time to waste i need a detailed written approach to accessing the buried features of the RX10 III. Will you offer an upgrade or discount if we purchase your RX 10 II Kindle E-book?? Thanks in advance, Perry.

    Hi Alex, It seems like I’m another one that has just purchased the rx10 iii and am desperate to learn how to use this amazing camera. So I’m asking the same question about whether it’s possible to buy the rx10 ii pdf/ ebook and get a discounted upgrade to your new rx10 iii pdf/ ebook.
    Cheers, Mick C

    ‘morning Alex
    Thanks for your excellent ebook on the RX10Mk3- I go to it frequently while finding my way with the kit.
    A point of interest, perhaps! I have a need to use Lock-on AF when photographing aircraft, the instructions state ‘This option is available for selection only when the focus mode is set to Continuous AF (ie: C) with the focus switch.’
    Well, I attempted to set this up many times over several days without success, I have been switching the camera on then selecting C – eventually I found that the Focus switch needed to be at C BEFORE switching on the camera – doesn’t work if you switch to C AFTER switching on. Or have I got this all wrong?
    Best regards

    1. Alex White

      Hello, Ken — I just tried this with my RX10 III camera, and there was no problem activating Lock-On AF when I moved the focus switch to the C position after turning on the camera. I have never had a problem in that regard. Maybe there was some other setting that conflicted with what you were trying to do, but without more information I can’t think of anything that would cause that problem.

  8. Ken Hawkins

    Thanks for your response Alex – I did suspect that there may be a conflicting setting causing my problem – I’ll investigate it further and keep you posted, if you do not mind.

  9. Ken Hawkins

    Alex – I have worked out where I have been going wrong – I have been confused between ‘Lock-on AF: Center’ and ‘Center Lock-on AF’ and trying to combine them – and then I came to P91: Center Lock-on AF, is a separate menu option. It is not available when the Lock-on AF option has been selected for Focus Area.p91. It’s been interesting trying to resolve the problem – for me, photographing relatively slow WW2 aircraft, it would seem that ‘Lock-on AF: centre’ would work well. Would you agree?
    Thank you for your patience.
    Best regards

    1. Alex White

      Hello, Ken — I think that Lock-on AF: Center is probably a good option. I think the answer also may depend on the distance at which you are photographing the planes. If they are sufficiently far away that you can focus at infinity, you could do that, and switch the camera to manual focus to lock focus at that distance. But, if the focus distance is variable or will be changing during the flight, Lock-on AF Center should work well.

    Good point Alex – I’ll check it out next weekend when I will be visiting Old Warden airfield where the Shuttleworth Collection of elderly aircraft is based.
    Best regards
