RX100 VA - The premium 1.0-type sensor compact camera with superior AF performance
ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens for precision imaging
The large-diameter ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar® T* lens offers uncompromised images across its full optical range of 24–70 mm. The wide F1.8–2.8 aperture allows for fast shutter speeds and blur-free shooting, as well as beautiful background bokeh. Flare and ghosting is also dramatically reduced thanks to the high-performance T* coating.
Exmor RS® CMOS sensor for speed
The 20.1 effective MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960fps super slow motion shooting and super high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter up to 1/32000 sec. that are too fast for human eyes to perceive. Moreover, 315-point focal plane phase detection AF provides for extraordinarily precise autofocusing and tracking performance.
High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine
The updated BIONZ X image processing engine achieves even higher-speed processing performance than its predecessor, to capture fast-moving subjects at up to 24fps. The enhanced image- processing algorithm lets you capture more natural images, with less noise across the sensitivity range, while maintaining fine detail.
Dense, widespread 315-AF-point coverage
Focus on your subject faster with 315 phase-detection AF points across a wide area of the image (approx. 65% of the frame). The Hybrid AF system combines these densely-packed, ultra-fast phase-detection focus points with the precision of contrast detection AF, for dependable focusing even when tracking small or fast-moving subjects.
Real-time Eye AF with excellent tracking performance
High-precision Real-time Eye AF combined with high-performance AF tracking provides helpful assistance with portrait shooting. It's effective even when the subject is looking down and away, or when faces are backlit or in partial darkness, and it keeps the focus on moving subjects' eyes when using the AF-C setting.
Autofocus in just 0.05 sec.
Combining the speed of phase-detection AF and accuracy of contrast-detection AF, the Fast Hybrid AF system can acquire focus in as little as 0.05 sec, to track subjects precisely and allow you to capture the moment perfectly.
Focus Area Registration
Pre-register, then instantly recall, a custom focusing area. Ideal for shooting sports like athletics, motorsport or tennis, or any time a subject moves regularly into an ideal composition in your frame. By simply assigning your AF area selection to a custom button you can prioritize that area for focusing when your subject enters it with just a single tap of a button.
Smooth-tracking continuous shooting up to 24fps
The RX100 V can perform high-speed continuous shooting at the full 20.1 MP resolution and up to 24fps with AF/AE tracking. In addition, the camera reduces blackout on the electronic viewfinder and LCD screen, and this reduction makes for smoother monitoring of moving subjects and easier shooting of fleeting moments.
