These two ‘Out of the Camera’ (OCC) JPEGs, by famous U.S. photographer Steve Huff, using a pre-release Sony RX10 III, at the U.S. announcement on March 30, 2016, in San Francisco, gave me pause for thought. There were, of course, other images in the set, by Steve Huff, that were very good.

This is at 600mm zoom and the seal looks OK. Just not impressed with how the rocks in the background look. Not, in my opinion, a depth of field (DOF) issue. A tad to fuzzy for my liking. That would bother me.

Yes, I am sure that it could have been easily fixed with Exposure Compensation, but I don’t like amount of shadow on her face. I would have deleted this image!
In the case of the Sony RX10 III I have to always compare it to my own Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 given that I know it so well. Some of Steve Huff’s pictures are superb and way beyond my capabilities. But I am just looking at the camera, the senor and the optics. I will keep on looking. Just wanted to share.
