Sony Announce RX100 V Compact Camera : RX100 V

Sony has announced the RX100 V, which Sony say has the world's fastest continuous shooting for a compact camera. Sony also announced the A6500 mirrorless camera.

The camera is equipped with the world's most AF points and the world's fastest AF speed. 

The RX100 V is equipped with a newly developed 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with a DRAM chip, a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70 mm f/1.8 – 2.8 large aperture lens and an enhanced image processing system with a new front-end LSI chip that maximises processing speed, expands the memory buffer and optimises image quality, in particular at high ISO settings. The camera also features 4K video recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, super slow motion recording at up to 1000 fps with extended recording time and more.  

A first for Sony’s RX100 series of cameras, the new RX100 V model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines the respective advantages of focal-plane phase detection AF and contrast detection AF and ultimately enables the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.05 seconds.

Sony Announce RX100 V Compact Camera : Additionally, processing speed has been greatly enhanced through the addition of a front-end LSI that perfectly supports the camera’s BIONZ X image processing engine. These two components combined with the powerful AF system allow the camera to shoot continuously at speeds of up to 24 fps at full 20.1 MP (approx. effective) resolution for up to 150 shots with AF/AE tracking. 

The RX100 V also has a high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum speed of 1/32000 second) that minimises the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects. 

Other advancements to AF performance on the new RX100 V include the addition of AF-A mode, which allows the camera to automatically switch between continuous and single-shot AF modes. Users can also manually select if they’d like the continuous AF and phase detection AF areas to be displayed live on screen while they are framing a shot.  

The camera also features 4K video mode and the ability to record super slow motion video at up to 4x slower than the original rate, for twice as long as the previous model, the RX100 IV

I handled the original RX100 Sony a few years ago. The model came with an amazing Sony branded leather case, I would recommend it wholeheartedly.
