With its large image sensor and Zeiss lens for superb image quality and aluminium construction, the Sony RX100 is an ideal enthusiast camera and also a great second camera to a DSLR for uncompromising quality on the road.
Extra Large Image Sensor
The RX-100 is the first compact digital camera to include a 1.0”- type image sensor which has roughly four times greater image recording area than most other compact digital cameras, offering excellent accuracy and low noise. As well as that, this EXMOR CMOS sensor has 20.2 million effective pixels for truly jaw-dropping image quality.
Outstanding Carl Zeiss Zoom
The Carl Zeiss 3.6x optical zoom lens on this camera is equipped with an f/1.8 maximum aperture and 7-blade circular diaphragm so you have control over how your images are focused, and can shoot in conditions which many other cameras would resort to using flash. However, even considering the large image sensor and zoom capabilities of the camera the dimensions are kept extra compact using AA (Advanced Aspherical) lens design.
Extra Sensitive and Fast Operation
The RX100 has ISO sensitivity that stretches right up to 25,600 (using By Pixel Super Resolution and superimposing technology through the BIONZ image processor). The BIONZ chip also enables burst shooting of up to 10 frames per second and 0.13-second high speed AF.
DSLR users will appreciate the inclusion of a Control Ring which emulates the ergonomics of such cameras. It simplifies creative shooting, allowing exposure, zoom and picture effects among other functions to be easily accessed and modified. There are also custom Fn (function) buttons and Memory Recall which stores up to 3 groups of settings for instant access. You can choose between auto and manual focus and MF Assist helps the latter operation by magnifying the central portion of the image, plus there is a Peaking function which highlights sharply focused areas of the image.
