The RX1/Zeiss combination is hard to beat. A close second is the RX100 however. Since it is always with me, I get more shots with it than all of my other cameras combined. It is so good that unless I am on a purpose mission of photography, the other cameras sit at home. The HDR is a high point of the camera besides the Zeiss lens.
Yes, that is the effect. It is called HDR Paint and was set to medium. It can result in exaggerated colors. The actual color of the item was less orange than what you are seeing. It is a fun effect and not for use when you are looking for an accurate reproduction of some colors. You like to have fun once in a while don't you?
Have fun is the first rule. With the RX100 or any Sony camera for that matter, fun is built in. Here are three ways to look at a rose with the RX100. First is all standard settings, using A mode. Next is HDR Paint Low and last is selective color set to red.
Great shots Chris. The dynamic range is very good in these shots given the extreme desert sunlight. What is the object buried in the sand, showing the strange circular pattern? If the shot was in the Roswell NM area, I understand.
The round little dirt pile is from ants digging I believe. Thought the lighting was interesting... The desert shots are off I-10 freeway between AZ and CF. I go back and forth for training classes for work.
Oh ok yea seemed to be a man hole cover... Why it is there, I have no idea... Thought it was strange myself...
Really nice photos! I'm looking forward to my first dive trip in a couple months - as I said, my RX100 is my dive camera. I should (better!) have some shots worth sharing
It does a bit better in lower light than I would have expected. Here's a shot I took of a foster dog I had recently. He laying next to my office chair, and I just dropped my hand down and snapped this quick shot. This was taken the day he arrived, after being in a shelter for a long time. http://flic.kr/p/dKFNsz
I am sure he's pure GSD. He's about 100lbs so his size scared some people, but he's really a nice sweet dog. He found his forever home already...although if he was cat friendly I would have probably kept him.
