Unlocking the Power of the Sony RX100 V

Unlocking the Power of the Sony RX100 V

I’m very excited to have the new Sony RX100 V in hand. It’s easily one of my favorite cameras because of its size, power, and versatility for vlogging. If you’re anything like me, the first thing you do when you get a new camera is to dive into its settings to truly make it your own. Often times, cameras are shipped from the manufacturer configured with settings that are most applicable to the broadest user base. That’s why the default image type setting is always JPEG. The fact of the matter is that the real power and capabilities of this camera are lying dormant until you dig into its settings to turn them on and customize them to suit your particular taste. In this video, I don’t only share which settings I change, but I also go into why I change them. A lot of these settings are applicable to most other current Sony cameras, so have at it!

    Very nice Brian. I don’t shoot much video with my RX100 V, so your settings and explanations were informative. I mostly shoot concerts at a small venue were we are allowed to shoot during the first three songs. Using the pop-up view finder is a really great way to get shots and not disturb those around me with bright display. One thing I noticed between this and my original RX100 is that it seems you can’t turn off the flash in any manual or programmed mode, so now I have to shoot in Intelligent Auto. Any suggestions for getting low light concert shots with this camera?

    Great, but from what settings do you start from and what’s the last step to save these settings?
