  • Yeah, bummer indeed :) But, lesson learned.  I've never actually used an "auto iso" before - and apparently I must have missed the menu option that goes along with it - something about shutter ...
  • Created discussions RX-10ii Auto ISO??
    So, I'm up in SF, enjoying a BEAUTIFUL day, and about 3 hours into pictures, I realize that the camera is (purposefully) set to auto-ISO...but is taking EVERY shot at ISO 6400. I'm assuming it's ...
  • Cool, thanks! Yeah, I actually was watching a tutorial yesterday where they said basically the same thing - static camera shots with a plain background work best.  And it makes sense that starting ...
  • Created discussions RX10-ii - Slo-Mo Options
    Hey all Have the Mark 2 on its way (rental) for a quick weekend getaway, and curious about something I haven't seen any info on: I've seen lots of samples of the slow-mo, and it looks awesome. ...
  • Wow - that's awfully impressive macro stuff considering there's no technical "Macro" lens or conversion attached.  Nicely done. Are you able to zoom to 200mm and retain close-up distance? Or do you ...
  • Yeah, that makes total sense - in fact, it's just plain curiosity that's got me renting it for the weekend.  As I said somewhere in this thread, I have the BMPCC (with Sigma 18-35 1.8) for actual ...
  • You're 100% right - I was getting bogged down in all the information (MB/s vs Mbps, UHS I/II vs U1/U3, etc.). I went with the 256gb UHS-1 U3 (95MB/s) card, since that gives me all the flexibility ...
  • Exactly! I'm one of the guilty parties trying to figure out if the cards I have (UHS 1 - U1) will be fast enough to handle the new beasts - and from all the reading I can find on the topic, the U3 ...
  • They are, in fact, sdxc - exFAT is a requirement for BMPCC as well. But, I've decided to rent (along with the cam) a 64GB UHS 1 U3 card (95MB/s) to ensure I can handle any 4k needs. Thanks!
  • Yeah, I'm a big believer in in-camera-formatting, but thanks for the reminder ;) Hoping this turns out to be a great little cam - love the focal length, love the theoretical capabilities - just ...
  • Thank you, that helps - apparently it's all about MINIMUM write speeds, which are actually very hard to find out - even on the manufacturers' websites. Basically, the rule is:  minimum write speed ...
  • Created discussions Memory Card recs for RX10-ii?
    Renting the RX10-ii for an upcoming trip to San Francisco, and curious if my 2 64gb 95mb/sec cards are fast enough, or if I should rent something with a bit more oomph, given the 4k record ...
