Packing outstanding features and performance in a sleek, pocket-sized body, the Sony RX100 Mark V is a compact camera for those who don’t wish to compromise. The camera’s fantastic portability makes it small enough to take anywhere, and its sharp 24-70mm ZEISS lens is versatile enough to photograph stunning landscapes, architecture, street scenes, and portraits. A bright f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture allows for faster shutter speeds and shallow depth of field with dreamy background bokeh.
The Sony RX100 V excels in both image quality and shooting speed thanks to an impressive 20.1MP 1.0-inch stacked CMOS sensor and enhanced BIONZ X engine. Back illumination technology boosts the sensor’s light-gathering performance to render images with remarkable detail and less noise across its ISO 80-12,800 range.
Capture the most fleeting moments thanks to the Sony RX100 V’s outstanding Hybrid AF system and rapid burst rate. 315 phase-detection AF points combine with high-precision contrast-detection AF points to lock focus within 0.05 seconds and reliably track small or fast-moving subjects. 24 fps high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking and reduced blackout makes it even easier to catch that perfect moment, smoothly and sharply.
Recording 4K video with full sensor readout, and none of the pixel binning common in other cameras, the RX100 Mark V renders footage with captivatingly crisp, clear detail. Manipulate time and action with a range of frame rates (including 960 fps for epic, super-slow-motion clips) and express your creative intent using S-Log2 and other advanced post-production features. Want to extract photos from your 4K or Full HD movies? Use the Photo Capture function to save your favourite frames as detailed still images.
The Sony RX100 V’s 3.0-inch, 1.23-million dot rear monitor doesn’t just make it easy to compose, live view and play back your photos and videos. By tilting 180° upwards or 45° downwards, it also expands your creative possibilities. It’s ideal for capturing selfies and otherwise impossible low-angle or overhead shots.
