SONY DSCRX100M5AB RX100V Cyber-shot Digital Camera


The RX100 V introduces the speedy, precise Fast Hybrid AF to the RX100 series for unrivalled 0.05-sec.1 AF speed; high-speed continuous shooting at up to 24fps2 with AF/AE tracking for up to 233 shots3 4K4 movie shooting5 6, and super slow motion recording7 at up to 960fps8.


Bright F1.8-2.8 ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens (24-70mm)
The RX100V 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 RX100V 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 seconds.

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 RX100V employs Sony€™s high-density tracking AF technology to ensure accurate, stable tracking performance throughout the 24-200mm1 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 RX100V 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 20.12MP resolution. Thanks to a large buffer, the RX100 VI 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 RX100V features Clip 4K for short - up to 5 minute - 4K (QFHD:3840x—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 200mm1 telephoto, and ensures smooth, stable framing and excellent image quality.

Touch Focus and Touch Pad AF

Fast, simple, intuitive AF: With the Touch Focus function. Simply touch the LCD screen at the point in the image where you want to focus when you'€™re shooting stills or movies. When you€™re monitoring with the viewfinder, the Touch Pad function lets you slide a finger on the LCD screen to shift focus. You can also set preferences according to which eye and hand you want to use and how far to reach your finger.

Retractable OLED w/ EVF benefits and optical viewfinder immediacy
The new RX100V 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. This offers photographers a shooting experience with the immediacy of an optical viewfinder, while still offering all of the benefits of an electronic viewfinder including a live preview of exposure, white balance and several other camera settings.

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.

Enhanced pro-video functions and NTSC/ PAL switchable
The RX100V includes professional movie functions such as; Picture Profile, S S-Log3/S-Gamut3, TC/UB (time code / user bit), Rec Control, Dual Video Recording, marker display function, etc. that have typically been available only in professional video cameras. You also have the choice of region setting between NTSC and PAL movie frame rates.

4K HDR10 using HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)

The RX100V features 4K HDR10 thanks to its new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile which supports an instant HDR workflow. Movies recorded in HDR (HLG) played back on a compatible TV will appear true-to-life, with fewer blocked shadows or blown highlights, without the need for color grading. The BT.2020 color space is supported, providing a wider color gamut. Four gamma settings are provided (HLG, HLG1, HLG2, HLG3). The HLG setting conforms to ITU-R BT.2100. The HLG1, HLG2, and HLG3 gamma settings provide wider dynamic range while retaining the overall appearance of current cameras. The balance of dynamic range and noise produced by each setting is different, allowing selection to best match the scene being recorded.

Super slow-motion movie9 HFR (High frame rate)
See the unseen with super speed HFR (High Frame Rate). The RX100V can capture super slow motion HFR movie9 at up to 40x slower than real time. You can chose from 960fps, 480fps or 240fps to playback in XAVC S at 1920 x 1080, in either 60p, 30p or 24p7. Choose between “quality priority” (4 sec.). There’s also an option to set “start trigger” or “end trigger” which will start capturing movie before or after you press the movie rec. button so you can time those split-second moments perfectly.

HDMI® clear output for uncompressed video recordings

Clean, uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2 4K or HD movie signal can be transferred to an external monitor/recorder connected to the RX100V via the HDMI® terminal. Video can be recorded simultaneously to internal media and uncompressed video to the external recorder in real time.
