Sony RX100 V Cyber-shot Digital Camera

Sony RX100VA (NEWEST VERSION) 20.1MP Digital Camera: RX100 V Cyber-shot Camera with Hybrid 0.05 AF, 24fps Shooting Speed & Wide 315 Phase Detection - 3” OLED Viewfinder & 24-70mm Zoom Lens - Wi-Fi

Sony RX100 V Cyber-shot Digital Camera

Introducing a new level of AF performance and speed to today’s compact camera market. The RX100 V boasts the world’s fastest AF speed1 (0.05 sec.)2, world’s fastest continuous shooting1 speed (24fps)3 with world’s most AF points1 315 for a compact camera.

Bright F1.8-2.8 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens (24-70mm)5

The RX100 VA features a large aperture F1.8-2.8 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 24-70mm zoom (35mm equivalent). The lens is perfect for portraits and macro shots with beautiful defocused backgrounds (bokeh). Two aspherical lens elements are incorporated into the design to improve sharpness while the premium multi-layered T* coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection.

Fast (0.05 sec)2 hybrid AF system (contrast + phase)

The RX100 VA brings a new level of AF performance and speed to compact cameras. It is equipped with a fast hybrid autofocus system – the world’s fastest1 - that combines the respective advantages of focal-plane phase detection AF and contrast detection AF that ultimately enables the camera to lock focus in as fast as 0.05 seconds2.

Wide coverage 315 phase detection AF points

High speed focusing is a perfect complement to the dedicated 315 phase-detection AF points that covers approx. 65% of the image area of the sensor. With such wide-area high-density autofocus coverage, you can accurately focus on and capture your intended subject at high speed, even if it’s moving rapidly in unpredictable directions.

High-density Tracking AF Technology

The RX100 VA employs Sony’s high-density tracking AF technology to ensure accurate, stable tracking performance throughout the 24-70mm1 range of the lens. This advanced technology leverages the benefits of focal-plane phase-detection sensors to concentrate AF points in a dense pattern around the subject location as its moving to keep subjects in continuous clear focus – even at high speeds.

High-speed continuous shooting at 24fps4 with AF/AE tracking

Designed to allow for high resolution, continuous shooting at high frame rates the RX100 VA features a 1" Exmor RS stacked back illuminated CMOS sensor w/ DRAM and front-end LSI that works with the BIONZ X image processing engine to enable continuous shooting speed at impressive 24fps4 with AF/AE tracking at full 20.1MP resolution. Thanks to a large buffer, the RX100 VA can capture up to 233 images5 at this high speed which can be viewed immediately after shooting. Viewfinder blackout between shots has been minimized in this high-speed shooting mode, which greatly improves the ability to follow fast action and capture the decisive moment.

1” (1.0-type) 20.1MP Exmor RS stacked back illuminated CMOS sensor w/ DRAM

This large 1” (1.0-type) stacked back illuminated Exmor RS image sensor with DRAM chip not only enhances efficiency and speed of A/D conversion through its stacked structure and more circuit sections; it also realizes super-fast readout speed. Together with the new BIONZ X image processing engine, it allows for stunning 20.1-megapixels at up to 24fps3 continuous shooting, blazingly fast shutter speed of up to 1/32000 sec., breathtaking 4k movie and super slow-motion HFR (High Frame Rate) movie clip recording of up to 960fps (40x), not to mention remarkable low-light capability with a wide sensitivity range (ISO 80-12,800)6 with reduced noise.

Clip-4K movie7 w/ direct pixel readout, no pixel binning

The pocket-size RX100 VA features Clip 4K for short - up to 5 minute - 4K (QFHD:3840×2160) movie recording directly to SD memory card7 - ideal for everyday casual use. High quality 4k is achieved by the 1” Exmor RS CMOS sensor with full pixel readout and no pixel binning - resulting in images that exhibit higher resolution and less moire and jaggies than typical 4K movies. Moreover, the XAVC S format is incorporated to maximize high-bitrate shooting up to 100 Mbps for professional quality video. The focal plane phase detection AF system allows for fast hybrid AF during video and ensures accurate focusing and tracking performance, even for the severe focusing requirements of 4K movie shooting. AF drive speed and AF tracking sensitivity can also be adjusted via the menu system providing flexibility for focusing preferences.

Optical SteadyShot Image stabilization

Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology - developed exclusively by Sony - pre-vents image blurring that can occur from hand-held still and movie shooting, especially in low light or at the far telephoto end of the zoom range. Image stabilization is equivalent to a faster shutter speed of 4.0 stops8 at 70mm1 telephoto, and ensures smooth, stable framing and excellent image quality.

Retractable OLED w/ EVF benefits and optical viewfinder immediacy

The new RX100 VA maintains the convenient pocket-sized design of the remainder of the RX100 family and is equipped with a high-contrast 2.35 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, ensuring true-to-life image preview and playback functionality. The EVF conveniently retracts in and out of the camera body and features optics with ZEISS T coating that greatly reduces reflections. It has the ability to deliver continuous live shooting at up to 8fps - making it easy to track fast moving subjects.

Advanced Eye AF ideal for portrait shots

The Eye AF function has excellent tracking performance and a high degree of accuracy and stability as it automatically focuses on a subject’s eyes, even when the subject is looking down or away from the camera, or is in backlit scenes when the face of the subject is in partial darkness.

High speed Anti-Distortion Shutter

The high speed – up to 1/32,000 sec. - Anti-Distortion Shutter, minimizes the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects. This blazingly fast shutter speed also allows the camera to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture at brightness levels. Shooting at wide aperture with fast shutter speed allows photographers and videographers to capture beautiful content with sharply focused subjects and defocused backgrounds under some of the most difficult, bright lighting conditions.
