        Any estimate on when the RX100 II book will be available? Would love to have it soon as many have purchased the Ii.

        1. Alex White

          Hello, that would be great if I had time, but I already have other books scheduled at this point, so that one unfortunately won’t be possible. Thanks for the suggestion, though!

  17. Jen

    Hello Alex. I enjoyed your book on the lovely LX3. Tempted as I am by upgrading to the LX7, I am going to give the RX100 ii a go. Do you have an eta on when the RX100 ii guide will be available for download?

    1. Alex White

      I’m aiming for late September or early October at the latest. It’s in the editing stage now, and I’m making good progress. I’ll be posting further updates in the near future.

    Hi Alex,

    Are most options/controls/shooting strategies same/similar between rx 100 and rx 100 ii? I recently bought rx 100 ii. Would the current version of the book be useful / cover most options for rx 100 ii? Would buying this version of the book qualify for a free upgrade once the rx 100 ii comes out?


    1. Alex White

      Hello, Jen — I will be working on the RX100 II book as soon as my camera arrives, hopefully within a few days. I hope to have the book finished by late September if at all possible. I will be posting updates at this site.

    Thanks Alex, I think I’ll take you up on that RX100 purchase offer. After a long search, I have just managed to get my hands on a RX100 ii.

    1. Alex White

      Hello, Jake — The basic shooting functions are just about exactly the same, but the RX100 II adds some new options, including Wi-Fi capabilities; the hot shoe that takes external flash, electronic viewfinder, etc.; better low-light performance; tilting LCD; and some more minor changes. The existing book would be helpful for all of the basics, but of course it does not cover the new features. The new book will be out by late September if all goes well. I haven’t set a definite plan for upgrades for buyers of the current book, but I would say that, if someone purchases the electronic versions here through the White Knight Press site in August or later and then contacts me to request the electronic versions of the new book when it’s out, I will provide that download for no cost.


    1. Alex White

      Hello — No, I will not be doing a book on the RX1R. I am working on a book about the new RX100 II. I have read about the RX1R, but have not seen either it or the RX1. I believe there are some similarities to the RX100, but considerable differences also. I would like to do a book for that camera, but I’m afraid it won’t be possible.

  20. Robert Russell

    I already own the book for the Sony Rx100, and am going to buy the Nikon D7100 book which includes the iPad download. Is there any way I can get the iPad download for the Rx100?

  21. Peter Green

    I am about to buy the book on Amazon, but it would be useful to also have a PDF copy on my iPad. I’m wondering if the book comes with a CD with the PDF version on it, or is there a way that someone who has purchased the book can prove it and have the PDF version sent. As you can see, I’m not keen on buying the same thing twice.


  22. Jeff

    Ok that’s great! Looking forward to it. Thanks for the info and the quick reply! Hope you finish it soon 🙂

    Just bought a Sony rx100 iii and find the downloadable manual most unsatisfying. Should I wait for the release of your iii guide or get the one that is being sold on this page? Are there significant changes forthcoming that might be worth the wait?

    1. Alex White

      I recommend waiting for the new book, because there are substantial changes in the menu options and other features. The new book should be ready within the next 2 weeks or so.

      1. sanjum1

        Thanks for the information. I am excited about using the new camera and hope it works for landscape as well as it does for objects/people closer up. I look forward to getting the book.

        1. Alex White

          Yes, as a matter of fact, it has just now become available in all three electronic versions – PDF, ePub (iPad, etc.), and Kindle. You can purchase it through this site for $9.95 and get all three files. The paperback version should be available at and other online sellers within the next several days.

    I’m sure you know what question is coming…… Are you doing a book for the RX100 m4 ?? Because I’m not buying that camera until you do! I love your books!!!!!! Thank you so much for all your help.

    1. Alex White

      Hello — Thanks for your comment! Yes, I am working on that book and I hope to have it done by September, though it could slip into October. I’ll put you on the list to be notified when it’s available.

  29. David Gen

    Alex, I just send a message asking the same thing. (before I saw this post). If I purchased the electronic III version would there be that much difference between the III and the IV – operationally?

    1. Alex White

      Hello, David — There are many areas in which the 2 cameras operate the same way, but there are significant differences also. For example, the RX100 IV has a different range of shutter speeds and it has some differences in how it handles ISO. Also, of course, there are significant differences in the video features. So, the RX100 III book would be quite helpful, but there would be several areas in which the existing book would seem confusing.
