RX10iv - Tougher Day

Still trying to learn settings and so forth that work best for me and my RX10iv.  Had some trouble with focusing yesterday and I think I have to lower the brightness of the evf because I was tending to under expose via EC.

I was also shooting in Program Mode.  I think I'd do better in Aperture Mode and keep it at f4 like most of you seem to do.

Then there's my issue with Sleep.  I had it on 30 minutes which kept the camera on during my walk.  It did eat up the battery though so I put it on 1 minute.  But it was real inconsistent as to whether or not it would sleep.  Put it in my bag, 1 minute passes, no sleep.  I decided to carry it for that 1 minute, sometimes it would sleep and sometimes it would not sleep.  I thought maybe it detected the movement of me walking or something but even standing still, sometimes it would sleep after the 1 minute and sometimes it wouldn't.

I'm hoping to get out and try some other things today.

Here's a few of the better ones from yesterday.

Saw a few more butterflies today.

Sandhill Cranes are very common here

He surprised me by taking flight.  Almost missed it.
