Re: RX1 Street Photography: First Impressions

1) I looked at all the images and the Shutter Speed are all 1/500 with Aperture all f/2. The only thing changed is the ISO. How could this be possible? Did you shoot in Manual mode and let the ISO at Auto?

Yes, i shot in manual mode with auto ISO. Unlike the OM-D there isn't a option to set the minimum desired shutter speed for auto ISO, so manual mode has to be used instead.

2) I have been wanting this camera since it is introduce. The AF is a bit slow as most reviewer said and you have too. How did you go about working the AF to get the best and accurate focus.

The focus works better when you have bright light shining on your subject so when I was shooting at night I tried to find brighter spots and start focusing when subjects enter the bright area. It hunts quite a lot otherwise (so far i would say around 50~60% missed shots for subjects walking towards me or walking past me).

Do you recommend buying this camera. Thanks
