  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V Digital Camera

    Taking an amazing pocket-sized series and further improving it, the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V Digital Camera from Sony takes the compact RX100 line up a notch by adding a Fast Hybrid AF system with 315 focal-plane phase-detection points. Incorporating a proven and reliable 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS BSI CMOS sensor, the RX100 V is able to create highly detailed images at sensitivities up to ISO 12800 with ease. Also, combining this sensor's speed and power with the BIONZ X processor and a newly developed front-end LSI, users can enjoy even faster performance, including continuous shooting of up to 24 fps with a buffer up to 148 JPEG frames, improved High Frame Rate recording times, and fast continuous AF with stills and while recording UHD 4K video.

    The hallmark features are the advanced AF system which can now lock on in just 0.05 seconds and operate during the camera's maximum continuous shooting speed of 24 fps. The High Frame Rate mode, which can reach an incredible 960 fps can now record for twice as long. Other improvements made to the RX100 V include the addition of new functions and modes, such as a Gamma Display Assist which provides a more contrasty image while using a flat S-Log2 gamma and a built-in Photo Capture mode for pulling 8.29MP stills from your movies.

    The front of the camera offers a familiar Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens equivalent to 24-70mm and with a fast f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture. This lens provides outstanding versatility for working in a wide range of conditions. In terms of design, the RX100 V retains the clean, versatile construction as its predecessors, including a lens control ring, built-in ND filter, and a variety of customizable buttons. For monitoring, this camera offers both a pop-up 0.39" 2.36m-dot OLED Tru-Finder EVF and a 3.0" 1.23m-dot LCD which can tilt upwards 180° for selfies as well as downward 45° for low-angle shooting. It also has built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for connecting to a smartphone.

    20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS Sensor & BIONZ X Image Processor
    Utilizing an advanced stacked structure with an integrated DRAM chip, the 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor of the RX100 V is able to deliver outstanding image quality at up to ISO 12800 with incredibly fast performance. This sensor stacks the pixel area, a high-speed signal processing circuit, and memory in order to increase data throughput by over five times and deliver features such as 40x super slow motion, an Anti-Distortion shutter, UHD 4K video, and more. This is also the first 1" sensor to have focal-plane phase-detection AF points for faster, more precise focusing.

    This sensor is paired with the BIONZ X image processor and a newly developed front-end LSI that dramatically improves the speed and throughput of the entire imaging system, enabling continuous shooting with AF/AE at up to 24 fps. An expanded buffer makes continuous shooting possible for longer bursts, up to 148 JPEGs or 71 raw files. The front-end LSI is also able to improve overall quality of the images, especially at higher sensitivities. Additionally, another advantage of this setup is raw output which provides outstanding color fidelity and image quality.
    Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* Lens
    Equivalent to a 24-70mm, the integrated Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens of the RX100 V will help users capture a wide range of subjects in a vast variety of situations. The wide angle to short telephoto range is a much loved option for professional photographers and it is further benefited by a fast maximum aperture range of f/1.8-2.8, improving performance in low-light conditions and enabling shallow depth-of-field effects.

    In terms of optics, this lens uses a ten elements in nine group design, which features nine aspherical elements, including two advanced aspherical (AA) lenses. This helps to minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure sharp, clear images. The lens also uses Zeiss' advanced T* anti-reflective coating to combat flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color. Furthermore, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization will help reduce the effects of camera shake while a built-in 3-stop neutral density (ND) filter is available to enable working in bright light with wider aperture settings.
    Fast Hybrid AF System with 315 Phase-Detection Points
    The RX100 V is equipped with an on-sensor phase-detection AF system that will dramatically improve autofocus speed for both stills and video. The camera uses a hybrid system with 315 phase-detection points that provide about 65% frame coverage along with a contrast-detection system to provide fast, accurate focusing in a range of situations. The RX100 V is able to lock onto subjects quickly, in just 0.05 seconds, and it can use AF tracking when shooting at 24 fps.

    In order to make operation seamless, the RX100 V benefits from reduced blackout for easier tracking when using the EVF or LCD. Furthermore, an AF-A mode is now available, which will allow the camera to automatically switch from AF-S and AF-C mode as the situation needs. Users can also display the phase-detection area to help users focus on their subject.
    UHD 4K Video Recording
    Able to record UHD 4K video at 30/24 fps for up to 5 minutes, the RX100 V is a pocket-sized powerhouse, delivering movies with exceptional clarity. By using a full pixel readout without binning, the camera collects about 1.7x the information needed for 4K output. This oversampling helps to increase clarity while reducing the impact of moire and jaggies. Fast Hybrid AF is available during movie shooting for ensuring accurate, fast tracking using phase-detection AF points. The camera also offers Sony's advanced XAVC S format for recording a high bit rates up to 100 Mbps.

    For advanced users, picture profiles and image controls are available, including the S-Log2 gamma that is able to help expand the dynamic range by recording a flat image. Gamma Display Assist helps users view a more natural image when shooting with S-Log2. Other options such as timecode, zebras, peaking, and more are present for making shooting and editing easier. When recording internally, users will record video with a 4:2:0 sampling at 8-bit, however, to even further improve image quality the RX100 V has clean HDMI output for use with an external recorder. This allows users to capture 4:2:2 uncompressed video and save in an edit-ready format.

    A Photo Capture function is built directly into the camera, allowing shooters to quickly save an 8.29MP still from their UHD 4K movies. Full HD can also benefit from this feature, where users will be able to pull a 2MP still. Additionally, the camera is NTSC/PAL switchable, making it usable around the world.
    High Frame Rate and Slow Motion Shooting
    Speed is a huge advantage of the RX100 V, and in video users will benefit from advanced High Frame Rate shooting and super slow motion. In Full HD, shooters will have access to a standard 120 fps setting that will enable outstanding slow motion when placed in an editing software. In addition to this, the camera also offers a dedicated HFR mode which will boost the cameras frame rate to up to 960 fps. Videographers will have the option of recording in Quality Priority and Shoot Time Priority modes for approximately twice as long with the RX100 V compared to its predecessor. This results in about 7 seconds of recording in Shoot Time Priority at the 240 fps setting. The camera will output a Full HD file from slightly lower resolutions in order to produce high quality images at all frame rates. Additionally, an end trigger mode enables users to record 4 or 6 seconds before the record button is pressed.
    Body Design and Wi-Fi Connectivity

Sony DSC-RX100 V reviews

Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V Digital Camera Deluxe Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 146.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent but needs added parts Pros and cons of the Sony RX100V Pro: Fast start up, excellent quality LCD viewfinder, write speed fast for photos, excellent focusing on subjects. Shooting just jpeg photos battery life is okay, shooting burst or video battery life dies quickly so buy extras for a day out. Cons: same size of other rx100 models but still compact and small for larger hands. I'm six foot and it feels so small and slick because of lack of textures on camera body. I had to add the rubber grip to the front that Sony sells for added grip. Also purchased the glass screen cover for the back screen because it's always exposed and leaves an opportunity to damage the back of the camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera, but hate the nickel and dimming Great camera so far. Amazing how they can get so many features and capability in such a small camera. The auto focus is superb. The only reason to give a rating of 4 is that you have to buy items for the camera that should be standard. $14 for a piece to allow you hold onto the camera easier, come on Sony...it cost less than a dollar! on a $1000 camera. At this price point this should be included with a memory card. Additionally, the camera has apps to allow for really neat features. Again you have to pay $5-10 each to get these capabilities. I feel like I'm being nickel and dimed on one of the most expensive point and shoot cameras you can buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable camera This is my first camera purchase since 2009 when I got my first DSLR - the Rebel T1i. What I love about this camera is that it's ultra portable and it has all the options found on my DSLR. The image quality is great and it also depends if you know how to use the manual mode. My first DSLR definitely got me ready for all the menus on this camera. It does not feel cheap, it's got some weight to it, and that is a good thing. There is flash and a viewfinder. It shoots in 4k, which is a plus. The only thing is the battery runs low a bit fast, which is way I picked up an additional battery. Overall, great camera, lots of options, and its portable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely impressive camera for the size This is by far the best "point and shoot" I've owned. It's awfully expensive -- a Panasonic with similar specs -- and a slightly faster lens -- is half the price. But what sets this camera apart is its "pro" features. It was clearly designed with a person who's used to full-featured DSLRs in-mind. And as a good bonus--the 4K video looks very good, too. It's extremely fast and responsive, and has wonderful low-light performance. I don't think I'll ever need the flash. In normal home room light at night you can take pictures that seem noise-free.� It's fast and easy to switch to Aperture or Shutter priority mode in case you want to have some control over DOF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much quality in a little package I have a Canon DSLR, but this is a great camera. So many features tucked into something so compact. Image quality is most important to me and the stills and video are both superb! There are more than enough menus and options for controlling every conceivable aspect of your shots (more than you'd ever want to deal with at times, but nice to know they are there). If you have the time, experiment around with them to see what they can do. I especially appreciate the viewfinder -- which can be very useful on bright days, the pop-up flash -- which can be tilted back for ceiling bounce flashes, and lots of ways to control very contrasty situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaces My First DSC-RX100 I have used the original Sony DSC-RX100 for several years since it was introduced. For travel pictures, it is hard to beat. Like a phone camera, it was always available, but the picture quality was always better. I got the replacement, the fifth iteration for the same reasons that I owned the original. I do like the faster focus and although qualitative in my hands, the low light capability seems to be improved. Only slightly heavier and larger than the original. The eyepiece and tilting screen were not features I cared about, others may find them more useful. Still a great(er) travel camera, one that you don't have to wear with a strap around your neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing camera, you get what you pay for Really a great camera, you get what you pay for. The body feels extremely solid and well build, it has a nice weight to it, the screen articulation is extensive but still feels solid, and nicely detents to the normal position. The lens is large and operates smoothly, the controls are well placed the colors in pictures look amazing, the 4k video and high frame rate video features are incredible, the list of awesome features goes on and on. The only things remotely bad are that the camera is maybe a little small for larger hands, but is not a serious issue. You may find yourself wishing for a further zoom as well as 2.9x isn't all that much. In all this really is a great camera takes amazing pictures and videos and just feels nice to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera!! I’ve been debating about buying this camera for a few months. It has a lot of good reviews and finally I’ve decided to give it a shot.I’m a Canon user and the hardest part was to convince myself to purchase the RX100V . I’m glad I did. This is my pocket everyday and everywhere camera. I like the results and the ease of use. The battery life seems to be ok. I always carry spare batteries, but I’ve never had to change the battery while I was out shooting. I use this camera for mostly stills, and I haven’t shot any videos yet . The menu is something to get used to. It is a bit cluttered and could be made a lot more simpler. Overall, this is a great little camera that packs a big punch.
