Re: RX10iv Birds in Flight (my first time out)

On this

"I used large spot for metering and this seemed to have helped with the exposure except for when the bird drifts away from the large spot metering circle in the centre of the screen. The PDAF focusing points have no problem keeping up with the bird but the spot metering doesn't seem to follow the dancing AF points when in wide area focus. I could see this because the birds were sometimes overexposed near the edges of the wide area focusing frame. Not that I have the frame visible I just know where it ends."

I'm far from an expert on the camera (less than 200 shots to date) but I did notice some complexity in the Metering Mode options in the Help Guide, page 153, which could affect what you're doing above. But likely you've read it already since you are way ahead of most of us.

Really nice shots, BTW
