This book, Photographer’s Guide - Get the most from your Sony DSC-RX100 IV, is a comprehensive guide for using the most advanced yet portable Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV camera.

In this 2018 edition,I provide you, the user of the RX100 IV with clear and well illustrated manual that covers all functions and aspects of the RX100IV’s operation. I have used a tutorial-like approach so that both the beginner and intermediate photographers can accomplish many amazing things with the camera. I take the pain to explain why and when to use the camera’s awesome features.
