Dear friends, while I'm waiting for my new RX1R to ship I'm trying to read the manual (which I don't find suited to my brain) and learn as much as I can before it arrives so that I'll start shooting as early as possible. I'd like to ask all of you having had the camera for a while to help me out accelerating this learning process. Thanks in advance for taking time to read through this long post !!! I'll start by describing where I come from Mostly landscape and candid/street photography, always shoot in RAW and postprocess in Lightroom and the occasional use of Autopano, Photomatix and Helicon for stacking of panoramas, exposures and focus stacks. Own two Canon bodies (5Dmk2 and 7D) mostly use them in Aperture or Shutter priority modes with occasional use of Manual and the only customizations I always have on them are: the AF brought under my right thumb decoupled from the shutter button less commonly used I set a 3 shot bracket 1 stop apart and use it modifying the center exposure with the wheel in front of the shutter so that I take 6 or 9 intervalled shots. Changes to AF mode from normal to continuos following the subject Changes to drive from single to multiple to 2 or 10 sec delay to shoot long exposures lessening vibrations (and never remember how to activate mirror lockup but this should not affect the RX1 ) Now some specific questions on the RX1R: In-camera lens compensations. Should better I turn them off and deal with stuff in Lightroom ? What are your Auto-ISO ranges and why ? How does DRO differ from HDR ? I try to understand the DxO lens test but confess my understanding is limited. I THINK I understand the lens gives it's best between 2.8 and 8, is that correct ? Does the MultiFrame NR need the 6 shots to be perfectly aligned hence the use of a tripod ? And to finish request for experience: This might be understandable only by those of you owning mainstream DSLR bodies: I see a lot of "end user oriented functions" that are usually missing in those larger bodies (such as my Canon). Which ones do you feel are really useful and not just a gimmick ? Which functions did you assign to the programmable buttons (and if you care to say why) ? Initially I think I should aim to have a setup as close to what I'm used to on my Canons On my Canons I am used to always be able to modify the AF decision by focusing manually without needing to disengage the AF. Is this the default way the RX1R works in AF mode ? Thank you so much.
