The Sony RX100 V belongs to one of the most popular lines of digital cameras ever produced, offering superb image quality and revolutionary video capabilities in a small, pocketable design.
Housing a bright Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm f1.8-2.8 lens, and a 1-inch 20.1-megapixel Exmor RS BSI CMOS sensor with powerful Sony BIONZ X processing, the premium RX100 V offers significantly better image quality when compared to a smartphone and even some larger cameras. It also offers tactile manual control, via customisable buttons and a control ring around the camera’s lens, making it a suitable option for experienced and professional photographers.
The convenient and compact RX100 V can go everywhere you go, slipping into jacket and trouser pockets with ease and when you’re ready to capture the moment, you have the option of a 2359K-dot XGA OLED viewfinder to compose your images, as well as a rear LCD screen. The RX100 is one of only a handful of pocket cameras that offer a built-in viewfinder and it neatly pops up out of the camera body to keep the camera’s design sleek and portable. An eye sensor on the EVF will allow you to seamlessly switch between using the viewfinder and the camera’s 3-inch 1229k-dot LCD screen. Additionally, the RX100’s screen can be tilted through 180 degrees to face upwards for capturing images at low angles and facing forwards, which is ideal for taking selfies, group photos or recording vlogs.
Taking pictures of everything from portraits to still life, buildings or landscape scenes and events is made easier with the versatile 24-70mm lens of the RX100 V. While its bright f1.8-2.8 aperture range gives it an advantage in low light scenes and also helps create attractive out-of-focus backgrounds. The lens also features built-in neutral density filter functionality to lower the camera’s exposure in 3EV equivalent steps. This is especially useful under bright conditions as it permits the use of wide apertures on sunny days.
The RX100 V uses an advanced wide-area AF with 315 phase-detection points that can be used to track subjects across 65% of the sensor’s imaging area. The camera’s super-fast AF can achieve focus up to 0.05 seconds, making it one of the fastest focusing systems in the world. It also features Sony’s intelligent Eye-AF that can detect an eye, even when your subject is partially turned away from the camera, to deliver sharp focuses on faces. Users can define which eye is prioritized, then focus is shown by a small green square that appears over the selected eye. When focusing manually, the screen automatically zooms in to magnify the focus area, making it easier to achieve focus accurately.
Keeping up with fast moving subjects isn’t only boosted by the camera’s impressive autofocusing capabilities, it also offers up to 24fps continuous shooting with AF/AE. With a buffer of 150 fine JPEG shots, the camera’s burst mode will make it easier to capture definitive moments, whether you’re taking pictures of your family, pets, sports or wildlife and action.

A popular vlogger option, the Sony DSC-RX100 V is an ideal solution for those who want to capture 4K video footage. It has one of the world's fastest autofocusing systems (0.05 seconds), plus 24fps for continuous shooting. The 4K quality recordings pair nicely with the ultra-fast autofocus, combine that with up to 960fps super slow-motion video recording, makes this camera serious bit of kit for the vlogger. The 3.6x digital zoom allows users to get up close and personal with subjects, while 8MP stills can be extracted from any 4K video recording. Reviewing footage is handled with ease by Sony's 3.0" Xtra fine LCD display that swings up 180 degrees and down 45 degrees using Sony's WhiteMagic technology allows for increased visibility during daylight hours.
