Testing out a Sony RX 10IV

Rented a RX 10IV to see if it will serve as a second camera or even just work for a single camera for travel.

Really enjoyed the sharpness of the lens. Size is a little big for an advanced bridge camera. Focus was fast and sure. The camera really worked well and at no time was I worried about noise in the changing light conditions. Camera worked fine even though it was 9° F.  Think I like the flexible focus the best for my shooting style.

Having trouble with back button focus due to the button location. Also having a bit of trouble getting the EVF set to show whats actually in the field instead of what the photo will look like.  Hope today to shoot in manual mode instead of program.

Any tips on getting the evf more lifelike? I tried to use log gama but that just turns everything red.

Still have to test birds in flight. Images are from day one.

White tailed deer

Appreciate the fact no lens needed to be changed since deer were close.

Flexible focus was really helpful here. I could focus and frame easily

Black-capped Chickadee

When its really cold birds puff up. Northern Cardinal (f)
