Sony DSC-RX10 overview

  • 1Description

The Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Digital Camera from Sony is a compact, point-and-shoot camera that features a large 20.2MP, 1", Exmor R, CMOS sensor producing high resolution still imagery and Full HD 1080i/p video. This sensor's design utilizes backside-illuminated technology to improve clarity and image quality when working in dimly-lit conditions as well as increase the sensitivity to ISO 12800. Updating from the successful RX1 and RX100 digital cameras, the RX10 houses the new BIONZ X image processor. The processor provides impressive performance speeds such as 10 fps continuous shooting as well as an extended tonal range with low-noise and smooth color gradations.

The built-in, Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T*, 8.3x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-200mm, covering abroad range of focal lengths to provide versatile, multi-functional shooting from one zoom lens. A constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 is effective in low light and provides shallow depth of field focus control. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is also available to help minimize the effects of camera shake when working in dimly-lit conditions and with greater zoom magnifications. The lens also features 7 aspherical elements to minimize aberrations and distortion and Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating, which helps to reduce surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting in order to produce imagery that is rich in contrast and clarity. 

A new Direct Drive, Supersonic Wave Motor (SSM) provides fast and smooth autofocus action while Eye AF enables precise eye-detection focusing with confirmation that a subject's eye is in focus even if their head is partially turned. Flexible Spot areas allow precise focus placement, and Lock-on AF keeps focus locked on a moving subject, even if that subject leaves the frame momentarily. Seamless close-up shooting is also supported, which no longer requires the need to switch to a dedicated macro mode, for focusing on subjects as close as 11.8".

For image composition and playback, the RX10 features a large 3.0", 1228K-dot, Xtra Fine LCD monitor with a tilting design to better serve working from high and low angles. WhiteMagic technology is incorporated into the display to increase the effective brightness of the screen. Also, the XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder integrates four aspherical elements for sharp eye-level composition. An automatic eye-sensor recognizes when an eye is at the viewfinder and illuminates the EVF while turning off the LCD.

Full HD 1080p video is supported in multiple frame rates and in both AVCHD format and MP4. A firmware update now provides the RX10 with video capture in the XAVC S format at 60p/30p/24p and 120p frame rates. A built-in stereo microphone and an external mic jack are provided as is a headphone jack from audio monitoring. Professional features such as full manual exposure control and uncompressed off-camera recording are also supported.

Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Connectivity) allow for easy wireless connections to smartphones and tablets in order to transfer images for sharing as well as to use your smartphone as a remote control via the free Sony PlayMemories app.

The compact magnesium alloy body of the RX-10 is moisture and dust resistant. It offers a built-in pop-up flash as well as the Sony Multi-Interface shoe for connecting flashes, microphones, lights, monitors, and other accessories. A multi-compatibility card slot enables the use of SD series, micro-SD series, and Memory Stick memory cards. A selectable click or click-less manual control ring on the lens lets you adjust numerous camera settings without taking your eye from the image and customizable buttons provides fast access to the camera settings that you need most. 

20.2MP 1" Exmor R CMOS Sensor
The large, 20.2 megapixel, 1" Exmor R, CMOS sensor features backside-illuminated technology to enhance its low-light capabilities to an expanded ISO 12800 while still retaining vivid clarity. Using Sony's Column A/D Conversion, images are rendered with impressive image quality and smooth gradations between tones and colors due to the marked reduction in apparent noise.
New BIONZ X Image Processor
Also benefitting the image quality, as well as overall camera performance, is the new BIONZ X image processor. It faithfully reproduces details and rich tones with lower image noise than was previously possible. Performance speed is also impressive including full-resolution continuous shooting up to 10 fps, high-speed auto focusing and Full HD 1080i/p video recording. Still images can be recorded in JPEG or RAW file formats or both simultaneously.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 8.3x Optical Zoom Lens
The built-in Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-200mm, covering wide-angle to full telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of situations. The fast constant f/2.8 maximum aperture enables enhanced low-light capabilities as well as greater control over focus placement for selective focus imagery. The lens also features 7 aspheric elements for reduced aberrations and a Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating to help minimize lens flare and ghosting in order to produce imagery with rich contrast and clarity.
Built-In Wireless and NFC Connectivity
Built-in wireless connectivity enables the RX10 to instantly transfer imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing with social networking sites, via email, and to cloud storage sites. NFC (Near Field Communication) is also supported, which allows for one-touch connection between the camera and compatible Android mobile devices; no complex set-up is required. This technology when used with the free Sony PlayMemories Mobile app also provides the ability to use Smart Remote Control, which provides for remote shutter release that is controlled by a smart device.
Full HD 1080p Video Recording with Stereo Sound
Full HD 1920 x 1080 video recording is supported in multiple frames rates, including 60p, 60i, and 24p. When recording in Full HD, the AVCHD Ver. 2.0 codec is used for highly detailed image quality that translates well to editing and sharing on HDTVs. Recording in the Internet-friendly MP4 format is also supported in 1440 x 1080 and 640 x 480 sizes at 30 fps. Manual exposure control is available in video mode. Sound is recorded during filming using the built-in stereo microphone, or additionally, an external microphone can be used in conjunction with the multi interface shoe. A headphone jack allows you to monitor sound directly from the camera and a built-in HDMI output terminal provides direct connection to your HDTV, computer, or external recorder for real-time uncompressed video recording. Firmware updates for the RX10 now enable shooting 60p/30p/24p and 120p movies in the XAVC S format which supports higher 50 Mbit/s bit rate. Slow motion 120p capture is supported at 1280 x 720.
High-Resolution LCD Monitor
For live view monitoring, image playback and review, and menu navigation, a 3.0" 1228K-dot LCD monitor is integrated into the camera body and features a tilting design to promote easier use from high and low angles. The screen can tilt approximately 84° up and 45° down, giving a wide range of viewing angles. The LCD also employs WhiteMagic technology, which enhances the brightness of the display for easier use in bright conditions. Real-time image adjustment can be seen on the monitor and Grid Display and Peaking can be customized for better image control.
XGA OLED Viewfinder
See spectacular clarity, contrast, and detail in every scene, regardless of conditions, on the built-in, bright, high-resolution OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder. Four dual-sided aspherical lenses provide a big, 33º view angle and maintain excellent edge-to-edge visibility of the electronic viewfinder. An eye-sensor on the viewfinder senses when your eye is at the finder and illuminates it while simultaneously turning off the LCD monitor.
Smooth High Speed Autofocus
Aided by the rapid throughput of the BIONZ X image processor, auto focusing on the RX10 is fast and accurate. The Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonic Wave AF Motor) provides fast and smooth autofocus action, and Flexible Spot frames enable versatility and precision when choosing your focus spots.
Precise Autofocus Tracking and New Eye EF Function
Lock-on Autofocus precisely focuses on moving subjects by continuously adjusting target frame size based on its recognition of subject characteristics. Even when a subject goes out of frame temporarily, tracking resumes at the moment that it is recaptured after re-entering the frame. Advanced Eye Detection technology creates Eye AF Function which detects and focuses on the subject's eye even if the head is turned slightly.
Close-up Focusing
Close-up shooting is seamless and no switching to macro mode is needed. The minimum focus distance for the RX10 is a constant 11".
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization works to minimize the appearance of camera shake when working in low-light conditions or with greater zoom magnifications. The system can counter the effects of both vertical and horizontal movements, and, furthermore, Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that balances both clockwise and counter-clockwise movements while recording videos.
Diffraction-Reducing Technology
This maintains outstanding clarity by applying aperture-appropriate filter processing to suppress and compensate for diffraction - a phenomenon that can otherwise limit photographic resolution and cause points of light to appear blurred, especially in images that have been shot using a small aperture (large f-number) setting.
Detail Reproduction Technology
By minimizing digital artifacts that tend to overemphasize hard outlines and rough edges when pictures are reproduced, detail reproduction technology makes images noticeably more natural-looking in detail, texture, and dimension.
Area-specific Noise Reduction
Noise reduction, even in images shot in low light, is individually adjusted based on imaging pattern variations for superior clarity and finer details.
Built-In Flash and Multi-Interface Shoe
A convenient pop-up flash with several flash modes is provided but the RX10 features the advanced Multi-Interface Shoe that dramatically expands compatibility with Sony digital imaging accessories such as flash units and microphones, thus increasing the potential of your photo and movie shooting.
Selectable Click/Click-Less Manual Control Ring
The manual ring gives you direct control of certain settings, zooming, and focusing, according to the focus mode in use. In addition, before turning the aperture ring to set f-stop, you can turn Aperture Click Switch on for clicked aperture adjustment or off for a quiet, smooth feel when setting the aperture. A display panel on top lets you see key settings without moving the camera as you look through the viewfinder.
Multi-Compatibility Memory Slot
The one memory card slot on the RX10 is compatible with Memory Stick PRO Duo, Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, Memory Stick XC-HG Duo, Memory Stick Micro, Memory Stick Micro Mark 2, SD, SDHC, SDXC, microSD, microSDHC, and microSDXC memory cards.
Rugged Design
Magnesium alloy top and front casings make the RX10 light, solid, and robust enough for long, rigorous use by advanced photographers and videographers. The camera's dust and moisture resistant design even allows shooting in rugged outdoor environments.
Advanced Interface and Customizable Buttons
A new, improved graphical user interface makes access to frequently used functions easier, just press the Fn button to display a list of them. In addition, seven control buttons can be customized to adjust up to 40 function types for faster, personalized access to camera controls
TRILUMINOS and 4K Compatibility

Sony DSC-RX10 reviews

Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Digital Camera is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cinematic Look From a videographer's point of view the Sony RX10 is a different product and as such must be consider. The lens is top-notch and exceptionally flexible .. also the quality of the videos it delivers is great and well above the compact bridge cameras from its own segment (and better than many DSLR's sold with cheap lens as well). Even if you are considering to buy a Canon or Nikon's DSLR body... you still have to spend another $1000 for a comparable lens. This camera is for people who enjoy exploring manual settings and its creative possibilities... and its also too expensive and capable to use it mostly on auto-mode by very-casual photographers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Camera I've been a long-time user of a well-known DSLR camera. I'm incredibly impressed with the equally high quality of the RX10 images and the versatility of the camera without having to haul around 20 pounds of additional glass. The RX10 provides macro, wide angle, and telefoto in one compact Zeiss lens. The constant f/2.8 wide aperature provides great flexibility for low light conditions, even at 210mm equivalents. As yet another great bonus, the videos are as good or better than my HD camcorder, and quickly taken at the touch of a well-placed button. This one camera has eliminated the need for 90% of my shooting conditions to carry two extra lenses and a camcorder, while still getting DSLR and HD quality images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic & Fun Camera What a cool little camera! It has outstandingly easy to use video that looks as good, if not better (probably better) than my 5D3. Its WAY easier to shoot video thanks to the peaking, AF, zebras and EVF than my Canon too. Video is implemented the way Canon should have on their kit. The RX10 is the PERFECT companion to my Sony NX70 camcorder also, larger sensor with better control of DOF and the RX10 shoots outstanding stills for those times when you think I should've brought a stills camera. I can comfortably travel on a video assignment with the Sony RX10 and shoot lovely video and pro-level stills if required. What a perfect compliment this camera is to the average still OR video shooters kit. Nice job Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome camera. Great photos and video. I was looking for an alternative to lugging around my full-sized DSLR and lenses. I had begun to notice that I was leaving my camera behind due to it being cumbersome, but I realized I was missing great photo opportunities. I wanted a camera capable of producing full sized prints with a fast lens. This camera provides both. The bonus is that it also produces high quality video. Better than a super zoom, it's sensor is capable of capturing photos you can print out rather than only display on a monitor. I've printed out 13 x 19 inch prints and they are of high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice camera I bought this because I was looking for something between the noisy 1/2.3 sensors of the megazooms and lugging my D800s with lens arround all day. Like my other Sony, (DSC HX-300) it takes really nice shots with a bright, fast lens. The Sony controls and operations take some getting used to, especially if you're accustomed to Nikon or Canon, but once you master them it's a breeze. The only negative is the limitation of a 200mm zoom, but as long as you are aware of that going in, it's not a major impediment. Really nice, clean pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased - so far This was purchased to replace my Panasonic GH2... I've only had this camera for a couple of weeks - I am an Event Videographer, and bought this to shoot parts of wedding videos such as bride's preps, and for some high shots on a raised monopod during a reception. As long as you're aware of the 29 minute limitation as far as length of a single clip, it works very well. I will also use it as a still camera to capture much higher resolution stills for my disc faces, dvd liners, website, etc. Overall, with only a small amount of test footage shot, I'm very impressed at this early stage.
Date published: 2014-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp Images First thing I did was a test to compare sharpness with other cameras I own (compact Canons, Leica d-lux). The features are easy to figure out and navigate and the ones I like to use are easy to access (+/- exposure, setting f-stop/shutter combination). I like how the view screen tilts - I took some macro shots with the camera right on the ground. So far the perfect camera for me - a step up from compact, but not the bulk of a SLR. The only problem I had was I couldn't get the battery to charge and it was a hassle dealing with Sony on that - after an hour of repetitive troubleshooting, they were going to have me send back the battery - good thing I went to an electronics store first and found it was just the adapter.
Date published: 2013-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Groundbreaking Camera Super image quality, even high ISO of 3200 is crisp and clear. Video has to be seen to be believed, amazing HD quality. Superb 24-200 Zeiss lens, great range, fast constant f/2.8, did I mention SHARP! Built like a tank, no lightweight here, a quality chunk of technology. Very versatile, customizable buttons galore, or put it on Auto and shoot without worry. A go anywhere, do anything answer, with quality optics, sensor, lens and build quality. Highly Recommended.
