Yes, I would say the Rx10iv is a Major League player all the way! You've said all along Robert, that this camera makes you think twice about bringing out all your heavy gear. Ok, one more from that day - I can't resist because it really performed so well! Here's an 85 MPH Sinker Ball coming right at you. (Taken as the light was starting to fade and I lost some detail on this).

Very nice. And the Indians are having a good year. Every though they aren't the Cubs. Forever.

Excellent job with the RX. If things hold pat we will be seeing you guys in a few weeks. From the stands on 6-27 with the RX, Alex Bregman walk off with the ball leaving the bat. No lenses over 8" in Minute Maid Park.

That's a great shot. Gotta love that continuous drive mode for getting shots like this. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get the RX10iv into the stadium because a week before someone I know was told nothing over 100mm allowed. They actually looked at the numbers on his lens! He said it had something to do with preparation for next years All-Star game which will be here.

Thanks and you're right about the continuous drive. Light can be an issue in MMP due to the roof being closed most of the time in the hot months.

Beautiful shot Gary! Nice to see an Owl out in the good light where you can keep the iso low and pick-up such great detail. I found this Barred Owl the other day just by sheer luck. I was tracking a Red-headed Woodpecker and a shadow in one of the trees caught my eye and when I focused my gaze I saw this one staring right at me. It was deep in the woods with poor lighting but the RX10iv came through again with nice image stabilization allowing me to bring my SS down and get a decent image despite the less than ideal lighting.

Any good tuts on using video from this camera? Short one I threw together. Think I need a faster frame rate

I was chasing this Pacific baza this afternoon. Took a bunch of photos with the RX10 and also 1DX2 with Sigma 500 f4 Sport.
I did not get any great shots, this was one of the better ones. I was reviewing JPEGs, photos from both cams in the 1 folder.
I went to the 1DX2 RAW folder to get the file for processing, could not find it, then realised it was an RX photo....

29 fps in the rendering. Not sure what the camera was set to so my reason for asking about tuts.

Wow, that is a LOT of Hummers! I did a short video testing out the HFR capabilities of the RX10iv. It would be nice to see you use that on a section of your video with so many birds (I only had one hummer at my feeder). My test is here:

Doc I like that! I don't normally use video enough and I shot that one to see how the camera would do. I need to figure out more. In another couple of weeks I'll probably have 80-100 possibly. Myself and a neighbor up the road have figured that we must be in a migration flight path.

29 fps in the rendering. Not sure what the camera was set to so my reason for asking about tuts.

I used to be fairly knowledgeable regards video, I'm a bit behind now.
Here's what I now believe: If not wanting to output as slow motion, slower shutter speed is better. By slow I mean 2 x frame rate.
So if you are shooting 30fps use 1/60 sec shutter. A little bit of blur looks natural.
An example of high shutter speed is the first part of Saving Private Ryan. High shutter speed was used to create deliberate 'jerkiness' to suit the chaotic high intensity action on the beach battle.

Generally that goes against still photography technique where a high shutter speed is used to freeze action but actually matches some motion photography, propeller driven aircraft, panning in motorsports etc where a slow shutter satisfies our brains which expect to see at least part of the scene blurred.

If using a higher shutter speed, for whatever reason, use multiples of the frame rate, ie you would use 1/60, 1/120 etc.

In Australia we use PAL. For a long time that meant 25 fps. Now with progressive frame rates, ie 50 frames per second (50P) rather than 25 frames per second consisting of 50 fields per second, 25 field A and 25 field B interlaced I'm not sure if I should be taking that into consideration.

Usually I am now shooting 50P and use 1/100 sec shutter. The results look good to me.
