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

died with the C32:60 error after 5 weeks

I bought this camera in late June 2022 and it stopped working at the 1st of August. I called Sony support and it's now on it's way in for repair. I really liked this camera and was very pleased with the photos and especially the video. It's the 8th Sony camera I have owned and I was using it as a light weight substitute when I didn't feel like carrying my a6400 and a couple of lenses around. I would have given it 4 or maybe 5 starts if it were still working. Now if I get it back 'repaired', I'm just going to wonder when it's going to fail again. This review doesn't reflect on B&H at all. They have always been 5 stars.

I do a lot of overnight hiking in the wilderness climbing mountains where I enjoy spending time taking quality photos but don't want to have to carry 3 or more pounds of DSLR camera equipment plus a 4 pound tripod. This camera is a perfect fit for my needs. Weighing in at just around a pound, I can easily support it with a 1 pound cell phone tripod saving me 5 or more pounds in back pack weight. Although it is a relatively light point and shoot camera, it's super fast lens and processor along with a multitude of settings make the RX100vii a photographic monster. I previously owned the RX100iii and v which I both loved. I am really looking forward to using the 28 to 200 meter optical zoom upgrade of the vii. Unfortunately, the vii doesn't allow me to download any of the Sony camera apps. Although, I really only used 2 apps with the v: Star trails and Digital Filter. I guess I will just have to up my game now and learn how to take these kinds of photos on the vii. I can't wait to explore and use this camera more.

The quality of this camera is as expected for the price, it is solid and heavy feels premium as the tag suggests. Love the compactness and high quality pictures and video it can capture. The included accessories are perfect if you're going on a trip or like to record your memories often.

Amazing little camera, it was bought to use in an Underwater housing and while skiing. The menus and functions are similar to my other Sony mirrorless cameras. It is impressive that a camera that small can have a zoom range equivalent to 24-200. It has raw mode, eye autofocus and can shoot 4K video. It is a versatile point and shoot camera.

Amazing AF, great little enthusiast P&S!

By Joshua
Rated 5 out of 5

First of all, this probably isn't the best camera for a casual snapshot photographer, who would probably find it overwhelming. IMO it's perfect for enthusiasts or those who want a pocketable alternative to DSLR/MILC cameras without giving up too much in terms of performance for those times when you can't bring bigger cameras along. My main cameras are the Sony A9 and A7RIV, so when I needed a small pocket camera I was happy to find a small solution that still has Sony's "real time tracking" phase-detect AF and 20fps from a stacked sensor, quite similar to my A9. Sure, a small 1" sensor will never be able to compete in terms of high ISO with larger FF or even MFT sensors, but this one does quite well for what it is. The AF is simply a gigantic leap beyond its P&S competitors. I was shooting a concert the other day and it routinely picked up and tracked the eye of the performers on stage, in dim lighting, through smoke and laser effects, quite impressive and very close/on par with what I'd expect from my big Sony bodies. 20 fps is nice, but since the card slot is only UHS-I (ugh) be careful with long bursts because writing can be excruciatingly slow when you're used to fast 2000x cards and UHS-II speeds. Of course, this frustration is compounded by the fact that you're also locked out of the menus while the card is writing, like other Sonys. Overall, the lack of a UHS-II slot and lack of a hotshoe are my only real complaints about this camera. The rest is pretty amazing for a P&S camera. The menus, AF setup, and usage will be familiar to anyone who has used a Sony mirrorless camera, as most of it is extremely similar. Image quality is certainly a step up from phone cameras IMO and the ability to have precise control over exposure and AF is great to have in such a small package. It's expensive, but IMO it's the only option if you want "big camera" performance in a P&S form factor that you can stuff in a pocket or purse. Highly recommended!

Superb small camera

This amazing compact takes sharper jpegs than my interchangeable-lens 4/3 system. Not for point-and-shoot casual photographers, this gem has a 600 page manual that can help you set up every possible combination of automatic and manual features. This RX100 re-defines "compromise" cameras that give up some image quality for smaller size and convenience. The next step up from the Sony VII is a top-of-the-line, full-frame digital SLR system.
