    Additional thoughts about the RX10 IV

    Progress report. 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...

    Second whack at a Cohoes Falls video with the RX10 IV

    Different video editor, differing editing, different music. Luke, you can probably ID the music -- no cheating with one of those auto-apps! Better, maybe? Cheers, Jock

    RX10 IV initial impressions – long . . . you’ve been warned!

    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...

    Crazy Peebles Island skies and a bit of scenery

    Cheers, Jock

    The eaglets have hatched (we think)

    Peebles Island again. The eagles are fussing with something in the nest. But still looking regal Eaglets, unfortunately, not visible yet. Cheers, Jock

    Peebles, eagles, some scenery and a duck

    Cheers, Jock

    Visited the eagles again . . . under leaden skies

    (added later) Just for perspective, here is where I was shooting from: The eagles nest is in the trees, dead-center, the big dark blob about one-third down from the top of the frame. I estimate the distance at about 75 yards. Cheers, Jock

    Lessons learned: eagles, superzoom, lighting, and Luminar

    The better half (aka spotter-in-chief) and I decided to check on the nesting eagles on Peebles Island yesterday evening. Immediately we discovered that the nest was backlit . . . definitely not as good as the other day Superzoom strikes again . . . eagles . . . and some crazy duck (goose?)...

    Superzoom sky

    Okay, I'll admit it; I am an unrepentant, not-in-the-12-step-program sky junkie. A few minutes ago my better half (aka, the spotter-in-chief) said, "Look at that sky!" 'Nuff said. Cheers, Jock

    Superzoom strikes again . . . eagles . . . and some crazy duck (goose?) photos . . .

    Peebles Island today. Bald eagles on the nest. Papa showed up: cropped: cropped: stopped by a wildlife viewing area in Brunswick, NY: And what is going on in these duck (goose?) photos? Cheers, Jock
