Photographer's Guide to the Sony RX100 III Reviews
This is a COMPLETE guide (did I already say complete?) to everything there is to know about the camera. I bought it shortly after I got my RX100 III. Everything is explained in an orderly manner and all aspects of the camera are discussed-settings, menus, uses, and so forth accompanied by numerous example photos. Assuming you bought the camera already you will not go wrong with the book. These are not Cliff Notes, but the real deal, in great detail. I read the Owner's Manual twice before I decided to buy this book. Even SONY's Help Guide on line was not especially useful to me. I found it fragmented and jumped from section to section driving me nuts. But here is all the information you will ever need about the RXIII in one place and straight up. You will be amazed how much this camera can do, and what you can do to improve your shooting. No doubt an experienced pro could probably figure out all of this and find what he/she needed in the camera. But some of us, probably most of us, need the level of guidance offered here. I read digital formats mostly, so this Kindle edition is a plus too.
The information provided by Sony for this camera is not very good. This book is great to learn about all the features of this camera, it is easy to use and I have learned more in an hour looking through the book than hours spent trying to learn the camera with the Sony PDF manual. I like that it provides recommended default settings to start with and has made it easy to learn all the features of this camera. There is a simple overview and then very detailed explanations of all aspects of this camera. I highly recommend the book for anyone wanting to get the most out of their Sony DSC-RX100 III.
Very thorough. The hard copy is too big to travel with but the B&W kindle copy does not have the color and detail that make the pictures in the book usable. I bought the hard copy first, and thought it was valuable enough to buy the Kindle also to have when traveling. I don't use my camera often enough to retain even half the information in this book so I will need to refer back to it often. I tend to use the camera more intensively during longer trips so that is when the Kindle copy will help. The Kindle copy also gives me the ability to put notes into certain sections of the book, using my own words to better explain the concept when I refer back later.
Updated review: Friedman's book is much better, and cleared up a lot of questions I still had after spending a couple of evenings with White's.
The information presented is good, however, I think it would be easier to find the desired topics if the previous model info was not also included where it differs from the M3. I understand with 5 models out there right now, this must be a challenge for the author, but that would help. Otherwise, information is clear and well presented. It has been helpful to me.
1000% better than the crappy owner's manual that came with this nearly $1000 camera ( when I bought it 2 yrs ago)'
There is one other electronic book others recommended to me, but I like a printed reference. This is just that, written in non-technical language. It makes it longer, and not always easy to find what you're looking for, but it's all here and I appreciate it.
This is an excellent, and probably essential, "accessory" for owners of the Sony RX100 III camera. The camera is loaded with features, but the menus and operation are not intuitive. The on-line guide from Sony is very basic. The book is presented in a logical, easy to follow way, which will be accessible to the beginner and also be useful to the experienced photographer. It is well-illustrated and indexed. This book will help you take the camera beyond "point and shoot" to a potent instrument of creativity.
