Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 mkV
Pocket-sized Digital Camera
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V from Sony is a compact pocket-sized digital camera that improves on the RX100 line up by adding a Fast Hybrid AF system with 315 focal-plane phase-detection points. Featuring a 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS BSI CMOS sensor, the RX100 V is able to create highly detailed images at sensitivities up to ISO 12800. This is combined with a BIONZ X processor and a newly developed front-end LSI for even faster performance, including continuous still shooting of 24 fps up to 148 JPEG frames or 71 raw files, improved High Frame Rate recording times, and fast continuous AF while recording UHD 4K video.
The advanced AF system is now capable of locking on in just 0.05 seconds and the High Frame Rate mode, which can reach 960 fps, can now record for twice as long. New functions and modes are also included, 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 RX100 V uses a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens equivalent to 24-70mm with a fast f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture for versatility working in a wide range of conditions. It uses a ten elements in nine group design, which features nine aspherical elements, including two advanced aspherical (AA) lenses. This helps to minimise chromatic aberrations for sharp, clear images. Zeiss' advanced T* anti-reflective coating has also been used to combat flare and ghosting for improved contrast and colour. Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation is also included to help reduce the effects of camera shake.
In terms of design, it retains the same clean, versatile construction as its predecessors, including a built-in 3-stop ND filter, and a variety of customisable buttons. A manual control ring surrounds the lens and features a smooth, click-less design for quick and quiet changing of settings. The ring can be assigned to control a variety of features, at different values, such as zoom, aperture, and Picture Effects. Compose your images using the pop-up 0.39" 2.36m-dot OLED Tru-Finder EVF or the 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.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V Digital Camera comes with one NP-BX1 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack, AC-UUD12 AC Adapter, Micro-USB Cable, Wrist Strap, and Strap Adapter.
