I just came back from a short 4D3N trip to Bukit Tinggi, Indonesia yesterday (09.12.2019). I decided to travel light for this trip, hence, I had requested for a loan unit of SONY RX10 Mark IV (RX10M4), a solid and smart all-in-one compact camera with pro-style operability, which packs enough groundbreaking innovations for even professionals to marvel at, from ultra-fast AF system of its kind, to legendary optics throughout its 25x zoom range, to extraordinarily precise and powerful image processing. Please click HERE for details about the camera.
The RX10M4 comes with Eye AF for human and animal, making it a great travelling camera for street as well as wildlife photography, especially for those wanting to have minimal gear. The camera also comes with high-speed 24fps shooting with AF/AE tracking and silent electronic shutter when silence is required. What intrigued me the most is the 35mm equivalent rancge of 24mm-600mm and aperture range from f/2.8 -f/4, which had allowed me to capture some birds during the trip. I took 3 nos. of SONY FP-NW50 batteries along with me, which could last me about half-a-day of heavy shooting.
In summary, the SONY RX10M4 is surely something worth considering if you are looking for an all-in-one pro-level camera from SONY. The only downside is the battery life
