I recently picked up a Sony RX100 IV as a back-up body for my Canon 6D (replacing my aging but beloved 60D). The idea was to have something fast, light, and capable for both video and stills, but that wouldn't take up much space in the kit during long, remote, canoe expeditions in the far north. I hemmed and hawed over a few different cameras and finally landed on this little beast after seeing some crisp slow-mo footage. After a quick test, I'm pretty confident that I made the right decision.
This video was shot completely on the fly (hand held) while grabbing a burrito down at the Ventura Pier. I primarily wanted to test the 1080p 120fps capabilities, although the camera does also shoot 4K 24p. This cut was lightly stabilized and graded in Adobe Premier Pro CC. Needless to say, it's pretty incredible image quality, especially considering this is a sub-$1000 point-and-shoot camera. I'm excited to test it out on an upcoming shoot in the BWCA and a personal trip to Wabakimi Provincial Park.
