Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII Digital Camera

Mixing speed, reach, and portability, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII is a pocket-sized camera packing a wealth of stills and video versatility. This seventh-generation camera in the esteemed RX100 series is the second to feature the impressive 24-200mm-equivalent ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens that covers wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths for greater shooting flexibility in a variety of conditions. Making use of the extended range is a redesigned 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor, along with an improved BIONZ X image processor, for fast shooting performance, high sensitivity to ISO 12800, and UHD 4K video recording. The updated sensor design is all about speed and enables blackout-free continuous shooting up to 20 fps for easier subject tracking. Single Burst Shooting also permits shooting at an extreme 90-fps setting for working with the fastest moving subjects. The sensor's design also provides a 357-point hybrid AF system for quick and accurate focus performance and subject tracking in both stills and video modes. A stacked design and front-end LSI also contribute to quickened operation and enhanced image quality. Video performance also remains impressive with the incorporation of S-Log3 and HLG gamma settings, and High Frame Rate shooting allows you to record at up to 960 fps for slow-motion playback.

Retaining the classic sleek form factor of an RX100, the VII still has a pocketable stature despite the extended zoom lens. A pop-up 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder is a sleek means for eye-level viewing or, alternatively, a 3.0" 921.6k-dot LCD touchscreen can be used. The LCD features a tilting design to support working from high and low angles and its touch capability permits the use of Touch Focus and Touch Shutter functions. The camera also sports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity for sharing imagery to a linked mobile device or for embedding location information from your smartphone.

20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS Sensor & BIONZ X Image Processor
Utilizing an advanced stacked structure with an integrated DRAM chip, the updated 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor of the RX100 VII is able to deliver outstanding image quality from ISO 100-12800 with incredibly fast performance. This sensor stacks the pixel area, a high-speed signal processing circuit, and memory in order to increase data throughput and deliver features such as Single Burst Shooting, an Anti-Distortion shutter, UHD 4K video, and more. This 1" sensor also has 357 phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast detection areas for faster, more precise focusing.

This sensor is paired with a revised BIONZ X image processor and front-end LSI, which dramatically improve the speed and throughput of the entire imaging system, enabling blackout-free continuous shooting at up to 20 fps with continuous AF/AE calculations being performed at 60 times per second. The Single Burst Shooting function also permits recording up to seven frames, in raw or JPEG, at 90 fps, 60 fps, or 30 fps for capturing the fastest of moments. The front-end LSI and enhanced sensor performance also improve overall image quality, especially at higher sensitivities, by reducing noise and offering higher perceived resolution and color definition.
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm Lens
Spanning an impressive 24-200mm equivalent range, the integrated ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens suits photographing in a wide range of situations. Now covering wide-angle to mid-telephoto, the updated zoom range affords greater shooting versatility while still retaining a compact form factor due to the f/2.8-4.5 maximum aperture range. The optical design incorporates eight aspherical elements, including four advanced aspherical (AA) elements, to greatly reduce aberrations and distortions in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering. A ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to suppress reflections and glare for improved contrast and color fidelity.

The flexible reach is complemented by four stop-effective Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake to suit handheld shooting in low-light conditions. Additionally, Clear Image Zoom can also be used to further extend the effective reach of the zoom with nearly no image degradation.
Fast Hybrid AF System with 315 Phase-Detection Points
The RX100 VII is equipped with an on-sensor phase-detection AF system that dramatically improves autofocus speed for both stills and video. The camera uses a hybrid system with 357 phase-detection points that cover approximately 68% of the frame along with a 425-area contrast-detection system to provide fast, accurate focusing in a range of situations. The RX100 VII is able to lock onto subjects quickly, in just 0.02 seconds, and it can use Real-time Tracking for AI-based tracking on moving subjects. Real-time Eye AF, suitable for both humans and animals, also ensures critical sharpness when shooting portraits.
UHD 4K Video Recording
Able to record UHD 4K video at 30/24 fps, the RX100 VII, is capable of producing 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 moiré and jaggies. Benefitting sharper recording, an Active SteadyShot mode can be used for recording that prioritizes smoothness when reducing the appearance of camera shake. 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 Mb/s. In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.

Affording extensive customizable color and gamma controls, the RX100 VII allows users to adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more. Also, users can use the same S-Log2 Gamma Curve that is found on high-end Sony Cinema cameras that squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video signal then traditional REC709, for increased post-production flexibility. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support is also available, along with the BT.2020 color space, for recording within a wide color gamut and, in addition to S-Log2, S-Log3 is also available for producing an effective 14-stop dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone regions of the image.

Speed is also a huge advantage of the RX100 VII, 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 editing software. In addition to this, the camera also offers a dedicated HFR mode that boosts the camera's frame rate to up to 960 fps.

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, vertical videos can be recorded with embedded metadata to correct for the vertical orientation during playback.

Sony DSC-RX100 VII Reviews

Sharp images, light weight, excellent zoom

By David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-09-09

I own a Sony mirrorless with a couple of nice lenses, but carrying it into the US Open didn't sound like fun. For the last two years I took my Canon G7x MII, which takes excellent photos but has a max 100 zoom. I purchased the RX100 M7 a month before going to NY and am glad I made the investment. The zoom, the frames per second, and the quality of the images are everything the reviews claimed. I was able to get some beautiful action shots of my favorite players and some of the new folks. The unbelievably fast auto-focus and real-time tracking are impressive I haven't had a chance to try the video yet. I'm not a video guy, but I'm sure I'll get to spend some time with it over the years. I have one complaint, but not with the camera itself (and certainly not a complaint with B&H!): The firmware hasn't been updated since this camera was released in 2019, or if it has, I can't find the software anywhere. Sony doesn't update compact camera firmware very often, but this is probably their last RX100 model, and when you charge the same price for a four-year-old model as the day you released it, you can bet that people who bought it plan to hold onto it for a while. I've read several complaints from people, some of which could probably be fixed with a bit of development time. If you are in the market for a compact zoom, and you can afford it, I highly recommend this camera.

Good, but not a 1 sensor

By Gary
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-06-14

I figured that a 1 sensor, as advertised for this camera, would be enough bigger than my current 1/2.3 sensor that the photos would be significantly better. However, the spec sheet lists the actual sensor size as 13.2 x 8.8 mm, which is slightly less than a 5/8 sensor! The actual surface area is less than half what a full 1 sensor would have. I don't know if there is something specific about the sensor design that justifies inflating that claim from 5/8 to 1, but it just seems like plain old false advertising to me. However, in more than a hundred test photos compared against my old camera with a 1/2.3 sensor, I'll have to admit that the Sony's photos are significantly better. The color is more eye-catching although the OOC JPEGs are a bit over-saturated; I haven't done anything with the RAW photos at this point. In scenes with a lot of difference between light and dark areas, the photos are more alive looking and pleasing to the eye. And the detail is much better when looking at the photo under high magnification -- fewer artifacts and much less blur. Physically, it feels solid and well-built and a bit more compact than my old camera, which is worth quite a bit if you want to carry it with you when traveling. I got the kit with a case included, but the case is much larger than necessary, so I use a compact Case Logic case that fits on my belt. The menu system is a bit confusing, with a lot of selectable options that I don't (yet) understand. It doesn't come with a full printed manual but there's one online; the included basic printed User Guide is enough to get you started. I'm not sure it's actually worth the price difference over my old camera, so if price might be an issue for you, you may want to rent one for a couple of days and try it out. For me, the overall improvement is enough that I've decided to keep it.

A Bit Early for a full review. Why I bought it

By Karl
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-06-07

I usually shoot with a Canon 6D MII with multiple lens. I have been published many times including once in Time Magazine. I consider myself a very good intermediate prosumer photographer. I typically shoot aerial photography, landscape and family. For an upcoming trip the DSLR equipment is too much to hike around. I wanted a top point and shoot for a three week trip to London and Italy. We will be doing miles of hiking per day. My initial photos, using AUTO, Aperture, and Shutter priority have been high quality. I needed to purchase two books for added information for this camera. My wife will be using it as well, and I believe it is a significant upgrade from our iPhone 11 Pro. Video was also very good. I had to purchase the stick on hold from BHP that is absolutely required. Camera is too slippery without it. I also purchased from BHP the hand held / tripod that seems very useful. Very pleased so far with my purchase, there are differences canon DSLR vs Sony point and shoot that I am getting used to. This camera is obviously a developed product. So far I am very pleased.

A great pocket camera

I have used the Sony DSC-RX100 IV for many years and it has been a great camera. Its biggest strength is very sharp clear images and good color rendition. I decided to get the model VII because I wanted to have a backup camera and I like the more powerful zoom lens. I'm preparing for a trip soon so I have been shooting hundreds of photos to get comfortable with this new camera. It is a tad bigger than the model IV and a bit slower lens (2.8 vs 1.8), but I have been very happy with its performance. I use it for still photos of landscapes and gardens. The lens is so sharp I don't need to worry about getting closeups. I just crop my regular photos and still have sharp clear images. After years of lugging my large cameras around this is a dream to use and the picture quality is better than my Canon 70-D. I highly recommend the DSC-RX100 VII.

Great Camera with Battery Issues

By Mark
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2023-03-05

I bought this camera for use as a video/vlogging camera. Great low light performance, great quality. The batteries however are another story. If you want to do anything but charge the batteries in the camera, you're stuck with third party options. You need 3-4 batteries to do anything useful with this, and Sony no longer sells chargers for their current generation of camera or batteries.

I have now used it for a couple of days on auto and the camera is fast. The pictures are sharp. Learning to hold this tiny camera steady may take a few weeks. I think it will be the perfect travel camera.

I haven't brought a Sony camera in years. I moved to Nikon for my DSLR in 2008, but wanted something more compact for travel, this camera is a mini version of the Sony A9. A great camera love it. Use it more than my Nikon now. I will soon be moving over to a full frame mirrorless Sony camera.

The Rode NT1 requires 48V phantom power in order to function which the CyberShot rx100 does not provide. It is possible to use a separate phantom power supply to power the mic and then connect it to the camera's 3.5mm mic input. For a portable phantom power supply, you can use one such as the Mackie M48 Single-Channel 48V Phantom Power Supply (B&H # MAM48) which can operate using either a 9V battery or the included AC power adapter, the Rolls PB23 Single Channel Phantom Power Supply (B&H # ROPB23) which uses an included AC power adapter, or the ART PHANTOM II Pro (B&H # ARADPP) which uses two 9V batteries or an optional AC power adapter, Connect the NT1 mic to the input of the phantom power supply using a standard XLR cable and connect the output to the camera's mic input using an XLR female to 3,5mm TRS cable like the Kopul XRSM 3-Pin XLR Female to 3.5mm RA Stereo Mini-Plug Cable - 10' (B&H # KOXRSM10B). Another option is to use a digital audio recorder like the Zoom H4n Pro (B&H # ZOH4NPROBLK) or Tascam DR-40X (B&H # TADR40X) which will supply phantom power for the mic, then record the audio separately and sync it with the video later in post production. You can use a line-to-mic attenuator cable like the Whirlwind WHH4NL3.5 Line-to-Microphone Attenuator Cable for HDSLR Cameras (B&H # WHH4NL3) to connect the output from the recorder's headphone jack to the camera's mic input to send audio from the recorder to the camera.
