    Sony Original RX1 vs RX1r2 rendering, which is better?

    With the Sony trade-in promotion and instant rebates, now is a good time to buy an A7RII. I recently purchased an A7RII and Zeiss 24-70/4 from B&H, and by trading in an old, no longer used Canon digital Rebel, I knocked better than $1100.00 off the cost of the combination. I believe a similar...

    Have you tried resetting the camera to the default settings?

    Sony Savannah!

    Great shots as usual, Ray! I particularly like the smooth tones of the B&W images. It's been a while since I was last in Savannah, but I've spent lots of time in recent years in New Orleans, a disorderly and less sanitized, but equally beautiful, member of the subset of American cities that...

    Sony Checking out an RX1Rm2

    Great images as usual, Ray. Here's hoping that Sony develops lossless compressed raw, and finds a way not to drop capture to 12 bits when shooting in continuous drive mode.

    Sony Checking out an RX1Rm2

    Nice to hear from you, Ray. Like you, I'm tempted by the auto ISO and AF of the Mark II. And is the start-up faster with the Mark II? The crippled auto ISO and slow start-up of the original are the two flaws that keep nagging at me, although they haven't tormented me enough to cause me to...

    Sony Best memory for RX1R

    I've been using a 32 GB SanDisk Extreme SD card in my RX1 for three years. It has been fine, and large enough to easily hold all images from my various week-long vacations . . . but I don't know how prolific a shooter you are. When I travel, I also carry a 1TB Sanho Colorspace portable hard...

    Sony Might the RX1R M2 bring a Firmware update for our older RX1R ?

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Sony WILL issue a firmware update for the original RX1 once sales of the Mark 2 settle down. I can't think of any reason why Sony wouldn't at least update the Mark 1's auto ISO implementation. Maybe Sony will even improve the start-up time and AF of the...

    Sony RX1 User's entry UK Mountain Photo Comp 2015

    Great photos. The RX1 is more versatile than you would think. I recently spent a few days hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado and decided to carry only my RX1. I expected to regret my decision at times, but as it turned out, I never felt that I needed any other camera/focal...

    Sony Couple of questions on the FDA-EV1MK viewfinder

    I don't think it is possible to have the EVF always on. As far as I know, there is no way to disable the proximity sensor on the EVF. However, you do have a couple of options for keeping the LCD off until you want it on. The first option is to set "Finder/LCD Setting" to "manual" in the RX1R...

    Sony RX1R and Lightroom

    I shoot raw plus jpeg, use Camera Raw, and for the most part process only raws. I set up ACR with unique sharpening and noise reduction settings for each ISO, with +1 saturation and +5 vibrance. Normally, I use either the Camera Standard camera profile or a Huelight CF Standard profile I...

    Sony Couple of questions on the FDA-EV1MK viewfinder

    I wear eyeglasses. I use the smaller of the two eyecups. The field of view is not complete unless I move my eye around, but not much is missing. I bought my EVF new, and I have not followed the prices of used EVFs. However, I consider the EVF to be indispensable. I have not taken mine off...

    Sony RX1 or RX1R

    I have used only an RX1 and haven't noticed much moire with it, although I suspect it exists. For one thing, the RX1 is said to have a weak AA filter. However, according to sources like Imaging Resource, the RX1R, as you would expect, is more susceptible to moire than the RX1. Imaging...

    Sony $511 Sony repair estimate for RX1

    The repair shop may be correct, but in 2.5 years of using an RX1 and following the RX1 on various forums, this is the first I've heard that the display on the RX1 is trashy and commonly in need of repair.

    Sony New to RX1(R) would love some guidance please

    Re high ISO, I've attached a photo taken at ISO 16,000 that I had handy. It might give you an idea of the RX1's capability. There is an ACR/Lightroom profile for the RX1 lens. It very closely duplicates the in-camera corrections when enabled. Most of the time, though, I don't use the ACR...

    Sony New to RX1(R) would love some guidance please

    My answers to your first set of questions: 1. My understanding is that the in-camera lens corrections (shading, chromatic aberration, and distortion) apply only to in-camera jpegs EXCEPT shading, which is also applied to raw. I've read that enabling shading with the RX1 exaggerates...
