That is a beauty Gary. So where do I go to learn the good birding settings when mine gets here tomorrow. I will be gone birding the Canon equip so wife has to sign for it.

Thanks. :)

I think the first thing is - don't be put off by the menu system and learn to use the Fn button as your go to shortcut for modes.

Then secondly learn the different focus modes which are on the camera. They all work slightly differently and some, for example wide focus, may not give you the focus you are after with a stationary bird. The wide focus will pick the area it thinks you want, rather than say, focusing on the birds eye, so flexible single point would be more advantegous (this you can move yourself, either using the circular wheel at the rear or via the touch screen).

Enjoy the camera. Any more tips please feel free to ask. :)

I got through page 5 and then thought I would just ask. Are there any tips, settings, etc that you guys are using?

Bill for years with Canon and/or Sony I was a back button focus shooter.
That changed with the a9/a7riii and the RX10iv.

I was and still am a manual shooter except for auto-iso. The Sonys, even the 1 incher
are so good with noise I let iso do its own thing.

But with the newer Sonys I'm kinda back to shutter release AND back-button focus.
The reason is Recall Custom Hold.
I have the AEL button mapped to Recall Custom Hold.
You have 3 Recall Custom Hold settings.
Setting 1 is the one I mapped to the AEL button which is again my back-button focus.
I did this by going to Custom Key in the menu and selecting AEL and then scrolling through
and choosing Recall Custom Hold 1
Setting 1 has these parameters-
Manual Exposre
1/1600
Continous Shooting High
Exp comp -0.3
Highlight metering
Continous AF
Focus Area is wide.

But I can set any of those to anything I want=shutter priority, 1/2000, a set ISO, exp comp 0, center metering, etc.

This is a situation where I'm spinning the front wheel and back wheel doing my own thing say for a portrait and then suddenly
a BIF opportunity jumps up. I instinctively put my thumb on the AEL button, get the green boxes on the Ibis and index finger release
shutter.

Remember you have two more Recall Custom Holds.
For a perched bierd I mapped C3 to Recall Custom Hold 2-
Manual Exposure
1/400 shutter
Single Shooting
expo comp 0.0
etc.

I thinking mapping a function to a 'C' key is a powerful feature of the RX10iv. Being able to set up all the parameters mentioned above
to a particular key is awesome.

Moving on. You've already seen or read that the 1 inch sensor like the mFT sensor is very forgiving for DOF. I just keep my aperture ring on
the lens to F2.4. It will go up as need be when I zoom out. I don't think...unless being artistic/sun stars/etc....that we want to go past F8
anyway with this sensor. I'm shooting long most of the time with the RX10iv so F4 is my norm.

OK, hope that helps a little :)

I have, but they weren't really unknown settings or tips to me really, just running through the menus and what they do. Worth a review if you haven't used a Sony before. :)

It is a help to learn more of the menu. Bought my wife an A7 early last year and have handled it enough to be a danger with it. This definitely helps in regard to both cameras. As far as tips on what to set I'm not necessarily following all of that.

I hope you guys don't mind me bombarding you with questions.

Are you staying in optical zoom? I'm assuming with the 1" sensor that this is a 2X crop? I'm shooting RAW so some items aren't applicable.
