      Hello — The RX100 VI book would be much more helpful for the RX100 VA, because the camera’s menu system changed dramatically from the V to the VA and VI. The book will of course not be completely applicable to your camera, but it will cover the menu systems much better than the book for the V.

    I have the iBook version of RX100 VI and the screen shots are of such poor quality as to be useless.

    Will there be a repaired version?

    I’ve previously purchased the Kindle version of “Photographer’s Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100 VI” from Amazon. Is there any possibility of obtaining the iBook and/or PDF version of this book, perhaps at a discounted price?

    Hi Alex-I bought your Kindle guide for the Rx100 VI, and took some really good photos on a recent vacation to the Grand Canyon., thanks to you. I use your book so much I’d like to get a print version, but i fear it does not exist. Am i wrong? I hope so…

    Hello Alex: I have purchased a rx100vii. Are there so many differences from the M6 that I’ll be doing myself an injustice by buying your M6 book? I would intend on selling the M6 book as soon as your M7 book is available.

      I haven’t received my RX100 VII yet, so it’s a bit hard to say, but based on what I know as of now, I would say the RX100 VI book would cover roughly 75 or 80% of the features for the new model. There are definite changes in the autofocus system and probably a few other menu options, but I believe overall the existing book would be quite helpful.

    I am unable to connect to iPhone with camera. Incorrect password is cited reason. Please send new password to email.

    1. Alex White

      Hello — If you are trying to connect an iPhone to your Sony RX100 VI camera, the only password that would be involved would be either the one generated by the camera itself for its own Wi-Fi network, or the password for a local network you are using to connect both the camera and the iPhone to. In either case, I have no access to these passwords. The password for the camera’s own network should be displayed on the camera’s screen, and the password for the local network should be available by looking at the modem or router, or by asking the system administrator.

    Alex, I have a print book of your SONY DSC-RX100 VI.
    YOUR BOOK DESCRIBES how I can make a time-lapse photo project using the multiport / USB connection to a powered PC on page 186 and 187.
    Now, I also have a multiport plug in with an intervalometer. BUT…BUT for a longer sequence, HOW CAN I POWER THE CAMERA AT THE SAME TIME? AS WHEN THE INTERVALOMETER IS PLUGGED IN?

    1. Alex White

      Yes, you should be able to use a “dummy battery”. With this option, you insert the dummy battery into the camera’s battery compartment in place of the regular battery. You should be able to run the cable from the dummy battery through a small flap that opens in the battery compartment door, and then plug the cable into a USB charger. Here is a model currently available at

      I don’t have a camera to test this with at present, but I believe this system will work with the RX100 VI.

    Do you intent to publish the RX100 VI guide in French ?
    Does you RX100 VI guide provide some of your suggested configurations ?
    Thank you.

    Hello Alexander,
    I have bought the book for the RX100 VII and find it very valuable.
    The only complain I have is that it is a big book, not suited to have it with me all the time… Is there a possibility to have a PDF version of the book so that I can have it on my phone for quick reference when I’m outside?
    Have a nice day.
