Sony RX100 - My casual, superficial tests

These sets are test shots with the Sony RX100, mainly to see
  (1) if the built-in HDR is effective handheld, as marketed,
  (2) to see how well it does in VERY low light using very high ISO, and
  (3) to see if I can avoid blown-out areas in jpgs on high-contrast days when using a pocketable camera.  These are learning exercises.

  LOW-LIGHT shots: Many of the indoor pictures in the Botanical Garden set of Aug 9, 2012 are taken at iso3200, 2500, 2000, and 1600 and produce little noise although I set my 'NR' or "Noise Reduction" setting to LOW, the lowest of 3 possible settings.

  A compromise for this pocket sized camera with large sensor is a zoom lens that's only 3.6x but which uses a new Sony setting that is a step better than the basic 'digital zoom' -- the "Clear Image" provides another (but artificial) 3.6X zoom setting that uses pixel interpolation rather than cropping and zooming.  Not ideal but better, often quite decent, than the crop/zoom type.  Will try to get examples of that later.

  A good, thorough review at Imaging Resources
