    From a short while ago. The gent on the left is the Prime minister of the Netherlands and the Parliament is in the background (I live closeby and walk by the parliament pretty much every day).

    Careful, Vivek. With today's sensors they'll accuse you of stealing state secrets!

    I'm surprised they let you be that close. Not that you are untrustworthy!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    Thanks, Folks!

    Tom, I am not worried. I will just refer them to the other thead where it is unequivocally shown that the Zony lens wide open (here ot was used at f/2.5) is soft.

    David, he commutes to work from his apartment on a bicycle (this sort of practice goes back a long time, >100 years). Great country and hope it will stay this way.

    I'm still with the RX1, and have been so for nearly three years now. The bokeh is not news Vivek... some other improvements are news indeed. I wish I had the money to upgrade and the images in this thread, together with the written words, make me think it's a matter of time. Maybe I can sell some Sound Devices and lenses and the car, lol. Congrats to the new camera!

    I agree on the RX1, I'm frustrated waiting for my delayed RX1 II but I'm still happy with the one I have.

    soon ...

    Madge monsters it in London!

    Madonnna at the 02 in London. Mostly at ISO 1600.

    fixed 35mm lens not ideal, but resolution allows for cropping.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    I got mine yesterday from London Camera Exchange. After 18 months "training" on an a6000 I'm right at home with the RX1M2. Here is a shot at f2 with a screen grab at 100% for all who are interested - converted to DNG and opened in ACR as is and resized for GetDpi with no sharpening or anything else.
    The little camera is a street shooter's perfect companion. I say little with a smile, as it's even smaller than the a6000, despite having a larger sensor.
    I would say to Sony that their menu design department is not only poor but having seen the comparison between this one and the a6000; they're downright lazy! There are aspects that have simply been thrown into the menus straight from other cameras that have nothing to do with this model, resulting in unnecessary duplication, apart from the fact that it's probably the worst setup after the one on the NEX series.

    Thanks Jim. I should add all taken using full manual mode, save a couple that used autofocus.

    Over coffee. F/2, 1/60 sec, ISO100



    It's a brilliant camera, no doubt about it.

    The grab shot. The sort of thing one goes for with many a different camera, iPhone included. Ah but the magic of depth-of-field, or lack of, is the key to this little machine.
    1/1000sec. f/2 ISO 2000 - I had the camera at waist level pointing in the general direction not looking at the finder or screen with face detection activated.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    @ Everyone in general - some very rich-DR shots in here! I just decided to skip on this camera, but man, those cropped shots make me pause if only for a second. :-)

    Quentin- those Madonna shots.. man. They look so tone-clean. And I actually like her as an artist (I take the whole package, not the singing alone), though I am not too happy with the latest work on CD.

    Quentin- that shot of her playing the guitar alone- what effective resolution you got in the end out of the 42 MP? Thanks.

    Hi Ricardo

    The size of the original cropped Madonna image is around 3095 x 2448 pixels.

    Pretty heavy crop, but enough left for a decent 10 x 8 inch print at 300PPI!

    Quentin - thanks for the reply. Yeah, the shot you got which is ~8 MP's can sure be printed at that size with quality and even bigger.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    Please surprise us with more pictures! I thought a whole shipment of these cameras arrived, but only a few members seem to be posting images here. Maybe a very limited supply?

    Or should we conclude that many were out-of-the-box failures, or that the files require endless post-processing?

    But many thanks to those who those who are showing their work!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    Vivek,

    About to land in NYC for a scant 36 hours, hope to do some night shooting with
    the Rx1rII for the first time - care to share some shooting tips? I never had the chance to shoot with my RX1r with holiday lighting before! I'm enough of an old timer that I still hesitate before pushing the ISO. Sigh.

    Some habits die hard.

    Thanks,

    Hi JT,

    Obviously I am not Vivek.
    What works for me with my A7r2 and lights at night is to manually set ISO to 800, f to 5.6 and shutter speed to 1/20 s or there abouts. Shoot raw and recover dark areas in post. Just make sure not to overexpose lighted areas.
    YMMV.

    I am also always appreciative of getting hints of doing better.
    With best regards, K-H.

    I wouldn't shoot at 1/20 without IBIS. With the RX, to be safe, I use 1/100 or faster. With reasonable effort, I can halve that.

    Thanks. I took having IBIS for granted! Sorry about that.
    Of course, you are right, unless you can lean on something or support yourself in some way.

    I tend to shoot a little faster, around 1/60 only if I am shooting people, because then there is too much subject blur even if they are just standing around.

    I agree, f5.6 is actually a very good stop, enough dof and yet the background is not too distracting.

    I got mine two days ago, not had any time to play with it. Hopefully will post some samples today. What few images I took indoors at night seem alright.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    For me, the magic happens at f/2, no matter what I shoot. This is where the images pop and the character of the Zeiss Sonnar really shines. With that said f/5.6 is very nice and still produces a nice file, but IMO as you close the aperture, the camera loses some of its mojo and starts looking like other 35mm setups.

    Lucille, you are probably correct. A lot depends upon what subject matter you shoot. But I agree, fast lenses are made for a specific reason, to utilize that big aperture even in normal light. I have taken some portraits (not my passion though) with the Batis 85 and the A7R2 at wide open and the images are stunning.

    Looking forward to trying this one out.

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    I love shooting wide open with the camera. The images and bokeh are lovely!

    What I don't like about f/2 - CA! I know it's mostly fixable in post, but that slows things down as it usually requires manual editing. I'm hoping that when DxO adds RX1rII support (soon, according to them) it will do better at auto-correcting CA than Lightroom.

    Of course, you are right, unless you can lean on something or support yourself in some way.
    Hah, no harm no foul - I immediately assumed you were used to IBIS. Man, I haven't hand held a camera at slower than 1/60 since I can remember and usually try to stay at 1/125 or above.

    Appreciate the help!

    Re: Fun with the RX-1R II

    Awesome photos by everyone (e.g. Quentin).
    Quick assessment of the new Sony Rx1rM2.
    - Face detection works great
    - Speedy focus but still not capable of tracking ballerinas.
    - Super sharp at f2.
    - Very long exposures produce hot pixels.
    - Tiltable LCD screen is quite handy.
    - Nice to connect a Nikon flash via the sc-17 cable.
    - Probably a great street camera, just haven't had time to test.
    - Big files, but oh so sweet.
    Overall impressed with this Sony upgrade.
    A few photos below.

    Great photos Joe.

    The small size is so deceptive. Still trying it out and liking it a lot. Never have I used anything this tiny with such great performance.

    Nice shooting, Joe. As the mother of a now grown ballerina, love the studio shot. One of the things I loved about my Rx1R was how "non-threatening" and really unobtrusive it was, a big advantage in kiddie photography.

    Having the ability to take such quality photos literally in a jacket pocket is intoxicating (and fun).

    ISO 100, 1/1250 @ f/5.6:


    ISO 250, 1/200 @ f/8.0:


    ISO 100, 1/320 @ f/5.6:


    ISO 1600, 1/500 @f/8.0

    any chance at a hires file of the last one to pixel peep at? It may be my eyes but the focus looks very interesting in that one

    Like the shots of sled riding!!

    Sure, here ya go:

    I picked this one for display because of the ISO 1600, and for the lovely, creamy color tonality of this lens/camera combo.

    JT (JCT), Apologies for the delay as I had something urgent to look after.

    The only thing that I found that makes a huge difference is to use AF-C instead of AF-S for street (I never liked AF until now!)-everything else is on "auto". Other than that, what matters is that you use your camera to make snaps (and do share it here! )!

    Thanks Vivek,

    Funny you should mention AF-C, I almost *never* shoot in that mode, so your advice is well taken! Unfortunately for me, work stole most of my shooting time in NYC, but I'll get back there...
