Found some images on my RX10 MkIV that intended to put together as a panorama. Used ICE to pull them together
Here's the original:

Huge partial moon hanging in the sky this AM.
Put the RX10 4 in full auto mode to see what it would do. Could hear it chattering away, making multiple images and stacking them.
Put it in P mode and rolled in a bunch of minus exposure compensation:
Ran it through DXO 9:
Normally when I go out for a stroll with the RX10 MkIV, I set it up in P mode with a central focus rectangle.
Yesterday, while walking at Oakwood Cemetery, the spotter-in-chief points up and says "hawk." (She noticed it because of a shadow traversing the ground; she's uncanny like that.)
In May, 2019, I purchased the Sony RX10 MkIV. It was a big leap for me, spending nearly two kilobucks on a camera . . . a non-trivial expenditure. Would it deliver what I needed or would I find myself, a month or two later, scouring the photo review sites, looking for the Next New Thing?
A friend treated us to a brunch cruise on the Queen of American Lakes, Lake George, upstate New York.
Lake George is just gorgeous, surrounded by the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains.
Here's our boat.
A friend asked about my camera. I said it had a lot of reach, and shot two samples...
Shot off tripod. Trees obscured part of lower sky. Had troubles with getting slo-mo to work (note to self: bring small flashlight so you can see the dials!). Need to figure how to get faster autofocus lock-on, but still, pleased with initial result.
All feedback welcome.
There is a great deal to like about the Sony RX10 IV. The autofocus is the best I’ve ever experienced; the Zeiss optics are superb; the fit and finish are excellent; it shoots both stills and video; the one-inch sensor is a serious step up from the small superzoom sensors I had...
For years now, I’ve had a mad, passionate love affair with superzoom cameras. I argue that they are, quite simply, the most versatile cameras on the planet: they will deliver 20-something millimeter equivalent wide angle views when you need them and yet, without changing lenses, draw you close...
I started editing photos on my iPad, I ended up processing a little more than I usually do. I actually liked it this time but I could see falling into the trap of doing this on every picture. Also, the RX10 may be the greatest all-around camera I've ever used. In engineering marvel!
