Sony RX10IV: Focusing, zoom range and cinematic video in slow motion

Got the Rx10IV last month and have been busy trying out a few of the features:

The crazy zoom, new to me, but I guess not new to any RX10III owners. What is new for everybody is the super fast focus and, so far anyway, excellent focus tracking when shooting pictures. Here is a little write-up of my experience taking photographs:

Phase detection and the RX10IV

Phase detection on the RX10IV: tracking works really well

My main focus right now is video, so I have done a few tests with picture profiles that worked out really well and an HFR High Frame Rate test, the HFR mode seems quite usable and the results looks really good on my screen.

More info on shooting high Frame Rate with the RX10IV

Because this camera is packed with features it is going to take awhile to discover and test all of them, but so far so good. I have always loved my RX100 and this steroid version doesn't disappoint, it's not perfect, but it's a lot better than expected.

Especially now Adobe Camera raw supports the RX10IV and I can edit a few shots from the raw files.
