Australian Geographic - - Your Society -

TO GET THE IMAGES I en­vi­sion, and my ed­i­tor ex­pects, while on as­sign­ment for Aus­tralian Geo­graphic, I need top-of-the-range gear. The com­par­a­tively light­weight

Sony RX10 IV earns its place in my kit bag for those times when I need a su­per-ver­sa­tile, ready-to-go cam­era.

It’s packed with pow­er­ful func­tions: fast and ac­cu­rate aut­o­fo­cus, a de­cent sen­sor and 4K video. It comes equipped with a beau­ti­ful Zeiss lens and I find it the per­fect tool for that quick, can­did shot or in a fast-mov­ing sit­u­a­tion. Its state-ofthe-art aut­o­fo­cus track­ing keeps ev­ery­thing nice and sharp – great for wildlife, and it’s su­perb for pho­tograph­ing peo­ple, too. I pre­fer to shoot in raw for­mat and this cam­era gives me pro­fes­sional qual­ity files ev­ery time.

In this era of in­stant shar­ing, the in-built wi-fi func­tion al­lows me to send images straight to my smart­phone – per­fect for In­sta­gram­ming and Face­book on the go.
