RX100 Mark 2 Top 3 Favorite Features

 Photography, RX100, RX100 Mark 2, Sony, Videos  Comments Off on RX100 Mark 2 Top 3 Favorite Features
Sep 042013
 

Description

In this video, Michael highlights his top 3 favorite features of the Sony DSC-RX100 Mark 2 camera.

The original RX100 was (and still is) an excellent point and shoot camera, sporting a 1″ sensor capable of taking amazing photos — even in low light situations. The Mark 2 camera isn’t necessarily a replacement to the original RX100…Sony is still selling both of them. Is the RX100 Mark 2 worth the extra money? Is it worth an upgrade? There are several features that scream “yes!”

The top 3 features covered are: (1) tilt screen, (2) hot shoe/accessory support and (3) WiFi support.

Background Defocus Tutorial – HX300 and/or Photoshop

 Camera, HX300, HX300, Photography, Photoshop, Sony, Tutorials, Videos  Comments Off on Background Defocus Tutorial – HX300 and/or Photoshop
Jul 242013
 

Description

Here is a [brainyfaceproject] video from Michael demonstrating how to use the background defocus mode on the Sony DSCHX300 camera.

The key to using this mode is to ensure that you’re the correct distance from the subject. Use the on-screen distance tip as you manipulate the zoom and remember there are 3.28 feet in a meter. If the camera suggests that you distance yourself 2.0M from the subject, average that out to 6 and a half or seven feet and the results should be good. Remember that the camera is taking two pictures in ‘background defocus’ mode and is modifying them into a single photograph that focuses on the in-focus subject and blurs the background. The camera tends to do a better job when there is little to no movement. If you receive an error that the background defocus couldn’t be performed, try again and make sure to keep the camera steady.

The background defocus mode on Sony cameras sometimes appears to do a good job, while you’re reviewing your pictures on the camera’s screen; however, you may notice that after you load the pictures up on the computer, there are imperfections in the image where the algorithm blurs out a portion of the subject that you wanted to keep in focus. For this reason, the tutorial also explains how to achieve the same effect in post-production by using Photoshop, regardless of whether it was shot with ‘background defocus’ or other modes.
