Product information

The Sony RX100 V is a brilliantly featured compact camera built for super fast image and movie capture, with amazing autofocus capability. It inherits the RX100 series’ renowned sensor for superb image quality, can shoot continuously at 24 frames per second, and has 4K resolution for incredibly detailed movies. Pocket-sized, packed with features including silent shooting, and with sleek and intuitive design, it’s a superb compact designed for quality, rapid reaction and ease-of use.

Amazingly Fast Autofocus
The RX100 V autofocus has been refined with cutting edge technology so you can react instantly to capture the action. It can lock onto and capture a moving subject in just 0.05 seconds. And with 315 individual autofocus points it has amazing phase detection for consistency of autofocus and motion tracking.

Continuous Shooting
Continuous shooting mode has been improved on the previous model, allowing for up to 24 frames per second with AF/AE tracking for up to 150 shots.

Zeiss Optics
The DSC-RX100 V sports an f/1.8-2.8 Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 24-70mm zoom. It’s a perfect lens for portraits and macro shots with beautiful defocused backgrounds.

Advanced Image Processing
The RX100 V features the high-speed BIONZ X processor for more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise while shooting photos and movies. It combines with The 20.1 megapixel Exmor RS® CMOS sensor with focal plane phase-detecting AF sensor to achieve such fast results. Plus up to 1/32000s Anti-Distortion Shutter minimises visual noise.

4K Recording
Capable of recording in 4K Ultra HD, the RX100 V is ideal for capturing memorable frames in stunning clarity. So your movies look second to none, even when viewed on a Full HD TV. The camera can even shoot high-quality still images of 17MP while recording a movie. And the Auto Dual Rec release function lets the camera automatically take the photographs in a choice of frequency release – high/standard/low settings.

Super Slow Motion
Slow motion movies are a breeze with the RX100 V. It can record the action at up to 960 fps (40x normal frame rate), and for twice as long as the previous model.

OLED Viewfinder
View every scene in rich detail with the bright and retractable electronic viewfinder (EVF). The viewfinder delivers a high resolution equivalent to 2359k dots to display the subtlest details for precise composition. EVF eye piece optics are treated with ZEISS T coating to reduce unwanted reflections for a clear corner-to-corner visibility.

180° Tilting Screen
Selfies and framing have never been easier with a 3” tiltable LCD screen. High and low positions are now in shooting distance which offers greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.
