The Sony RX 100 M2 is a complicated piece of kit. The manual supplied in the camera box is completely worthless and the online version very awkward to use and vague on details. Alexander White has hit a home run with this publication. Using plain language and avoiding technical jargon, anyone can master the swathe of features packed into this camera after reading this book. This has saved me hours of wasted time trying to look up things on the internet. A must have for anyone who owns this camera. Note to Sony, hire this guy to write your camera manuals!

Clear, well written. Everything you need to know about this camera. This book answered many questions I had about this camera and helped me immensely in my decision to buy the camera. Way more informative than Sony's manual and goes well beyond what one would otherwise find easily by surfing various web reviews. The section on accessories is especially useful. The only gap I found was the section on panoramas was a bit too short...perhaps this could be expanded in a future update. Still, this is just a minor quibble. The book is excellent value and an indispensable companion to anyone seeking to get the most out of a very sophisticated camera.

I concur that Sony should include this book with the camera. I look at it this way: You have spent a good deal of money on this camera; why would you not want to learn everything you can about what you can do with it? Even after using the camera for a month, I discovered new features and reasons to use them on nearly every page. You may not use every feature, but you will easily pick up some ideas that will become a new permanent part of your picture taking routine. Without patronizing the reader, with deliberate and careful organization, the writer dissects every nuance of this remarkable machine with clear, readable text, photos, and diagrams. When doing so, the author explains why the particular feature he is describing might be useful in specific situations. The intent of the book is obviously to explain the use of this camera in detail, but a secondary result is that the reader comes away with a greater appreciation and understanding of the photo taking process. Well worth the print edition to keep as reference.

All reviews are personnel but what I need in a book on a camera is a detailed description of all the functions, not a treatise on general technical details, like f stops. This book fills the bill. For the beginner there are short clear explanations of why you might want to shoot wide open but the vast majority of the text is about the functions of this camera. Perhaps I should have mentioned that I have the Kindle edition and thus don't know about the quality of the paper version.

I purchased the Kindle edition. It is very thorough and well-written with clear instructions and suggestions on how to use this marvelous camera. I blundered around for six months before getting this, and my enjoyment of the camera was greatly increased after learning about its various modes, adjustments and capabilities. Recommended.

This book was extremely helpful. Much more in depth than the manual, and the photos included provided great examples of what the camera is capable of doing. If you are going to spend a substantial amount of money on the Sony DSC-RX 100II, it's certainly worth it to spend a few extra dollars and purchase this book.

I researched and found the best point and shoot camera with semi professional qualities in this camera DSC-RX100II Sony.
I love the camera but instructions for it were slim and none. So I bought this book by Alexander White and he does a terrific job explaining the different parts and features of this camera. I would have missed quite a few great features if I have not read this book, in fact I will reread this book to make sure I understand everything and didn't skip over some little known facts on the camera. I highly recommend this book for anyone who bought or might consider the Sony DSC-RX100 II.

People who buy a Sony DSC-RX100 II are not typically looking for a point and shoot camera. They're buying a small, portable camera that contains most of the quality and features of a DSLR. If you want to get the most out of this small camera, forget the SONY manual and read this book. It is a great how-to guide and reference, If you buy the Kindle version you can always have it available on your smart phone for use when traveling.
