The Sony RX100 Mark VII redefines all expectations of compact cameras. Pocket-sized dimensions disguise a powerhouse of features that will impress the most demanding of professional photographers, videographers and vloggers. The RX100 VII boasts the same engine as the pro sports-oriented Sony a9, delivering speed and accuracy in a whole other league. A newly developed 20.1MP, 1-inch back-illuminated CMOS sensor offers truly exceptional image quality with true-to-life colours and details and outstanding low-light performance (ISO 100-12800).
Capture everything from landscapes to wildlife with brilliant results. From the very widest to the very furthest zoom, the RX100 Mark VII’s 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 ZEISS T* lens is designed to deliver maximum clarity and resolution. A maximum aperture range of f/2.8-4.5 allows the use of faster shutter speeds and shallower depth of field, resulting in sharper action shots and more dramatic defocused effects.
Keep pace with the fastest moving action. Boasting a remarkable 357 on-sensor phase-detection AF points covering 68% of the frame, the Sony RX100 VII can acquire focus in a mere 0.02 seconds. AI technology makes possible Real-time Tracking and Real Time Eye AF for stills and movies, and Animal Eye AF for stills, maintaining constant, steady focus on your subject even when it moves.
With 90 fps single burst shooting (JPEG or RAW), Sony RX100 Mark VII can capture the most fleeting of scenes, moment by split-second moment. 20 fps blackout-free continuous shooting lets you track your subject’s movement uninterrupted in the viewfinder or LCD monitor.
Create polished movies and share-worthy vlogs with the Sony RX100 VII’s superb suite of video features. As well as super slow motion, the camera offers internal 4K video recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. The result is startlingly high-quality movies – viewable in vibrant HDR (High Dynamic Range) on a compatible TV thanks to assorted log profiles including HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma). An external microphone jack is included for high-quality audio capture, and vertically shot movies can now be viewed in the same orientation on PCs and smartphones.
The Sony RX100 VII comes equipped with 4.5-stop Optical SteadyShot, which reduces the effects of handheld camera shake often encountered in dim light or at telephoto zoom ranges. 4K video works with "Active" mode image stabilisation, which offers eight times the stabilising effects of Standard mode. For HD movies, Intelligent Active mode movies provides smoother stabilisation even when filming while walking; the Movie Edit add-on mobile app helps produce smoothness comparable to that which you’d get with a gimbal.
Enjoy the most seamless operation in a Sony RX100 camera yet. While popular features—such as the built-in pop-up XGA OLED viewfinder and 180° up/90° down tilting touchscreen—of the RX100 Mark VI remain, the interface of the Mark VII benefits from numerous refinements, from simpler, more user-friendly menus to improved touchscreen controls and advanced options for button customisation.
