The FitzPatrick Tapes: The sensational story of the man and the bank that brought Ireland low

One day in May 2009, Sean FitzPatrick - the disgraced former chief executive and chairman of Anglo Irish Bank - sat down to lunch in a Holiday Inn in Dublin. Across the table sat Tom Lyons, a business reporter with the Sunday Times.

Seven months later, the two met for the first of what would be seventeen formal, tape-recorded interviews over the course of 2010: a year when Ireland, its public finances ruined in large part by the cost of covering Anglo's losses, went bust itself. In these interviews, FitzPatrick talked at length and in detail about his banking experiences and philosophy, his colleagues and clients, his investments, his public disgrace, his arrest and his bankruptcy.

Lyons and his colleague Brian Carey draw on the FitzPatrick tapes and on their many sources within Anglo, the state and the business community to tell the story of that crisis - and of the man who became the face of it. This is a tale of toothless regulators, hopeless accountants, politicians and civil servants out of their depth, and businessmen in denial about the crash. Above all, though, it is the story of FitzPatrick: the man who built that bank that has been at the centre of Ireland's economic meltdown.

'A sensational document' Eamon Dunphy, Newstalk

'It is a journalistic scoop; the story of a bank that got too big; a snapshot of an economic era; and, already, a piece - or at least a version - of history' Sunday Business Post

This book is a complete guide to using the Sony DSC-RX100 III camera, one of the most advanced, but still pocketable, cameras available. With the publication of this book, author Alexander White provides users of the RX100 III with a manual covering all aspects of the camera. Using a tutorial-like approach, the book shows beginning and intermediate photographers how to accomplish things with the RX100 III, and explains when and why to use the camera’s features.

The book provides details about the camera’s numerous shooting modes as well as its menu options for shooting, playback, setup, and special effects. The book covers all of the new features of the RX100 III, including its unique pop-up electronic viewfinder, tilting LCD screen, built-in neutral density filter, and enhanced capabilities for camera control and image transfer over a wireless network.

The book includes more than 400 color photographs that illustrate the camera’s controls, display screens, and menus. The images also provide examples of the photographs that can be taken using the RX100 III’s Scene shooting mode, with settings optimized for subjects such as landscapes, sunsets, portraits, and action shots; the Creative Style and Picture Effect menu options, with a variety of settings for altering the appearance of images; and the camera’s features for continuous shooting and shooting in dim lighting.

In addition, the book provides introductions to more advanced topics such as infrared photography, astrophotography, and digiscoping.

The book includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the RX100 III, which can shoot high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound, and which offers manual control of exposure and focus during movie recording as well as an upgraded video format, XAVC S.

In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories for the RX100 III, including cases, external flash units, and filter adapters, and includes a list of websites and other resources for further information. The book includes an appendix with “quick tips” on how to take advantage of the camera’s features in the most efficient ways possible.
