Sony - Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V 20.1-Megapixel Digital Camera - Black DSCRX100M5A/B
RX100 V The premium 1.0-type sensor compact camera with superior AF performance
ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens for precision imagingThe large-diameter ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar® T* lens offers uncompromised images across its full optical range of 24–70 mm5. 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 speedThe 20.1 effective MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960fps6 super slow motion shooting7 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 engineThe updated BIONZ X image processing engine achieves even higher-speed processing performance than its predecessor8, to capture fast-moving subjects at up to 24fps2. 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 coverageFocus 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 performanceHigh-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.
Focus Area RegistrationPre-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 24fps2The RX100 V can perform high-speed continuous shooting at the full 20.1 MP resolution and up to 24fps2 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.
AF-A mode automatically switches focus modeIn AF-A mode, the camera automatically switches between AF-S mode (Single AF: locks focus while the shutter button is pressed halfway) and AF-C mode (Continuous AF: keeps focusing on subjects while the shutter button is pressed halfway), according to such changes as sudden subject movement and brightness as detected throughout the shooting frame.
1/32000 s Anti-Distortion ShutterUp to 1/32000 s Anti-Distortion Shutter works to minimize image distortion caused by the rolling shutter phenomenon. The extraordinarily fast shutter speed also allows you to produce photos with background defocusing using a large aperture setting even under extremely bright conditions at a maximum of EV199.
Brilliant 4K moviesIn shooting 4K3, 10 (QFHD resolution: 3840 x 2160) movies with full pixel readout without pixel binning, the camera collects approx. 1.7 times as much information as is required for basic 4K movie output. This oversampling effect results in images of outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies.
Photo Capture creates clear stills from moviesThe Photo Capture function lets you select a moment from a 4K movie in playback and save it in the form of a highly detailed still image file of over 8 megapixels. Likewise, you can create a 2-megapixel still image file from a Full HD movie that has been recorded.
Up to 960fps6 for incredible slow motion7Using the mode dial to select HFR, it's easy to create super slow motion movies7 containing split-second moments of action. Choose shooting frame rates of 960/1000fps, 480/500fps, or 240/250fps (NTSC/PAL)11, depending on speed of a moving subject. Image quality is nearly Full HD at 240/250fps, and HD at 480/500fps in Quality Priority mode. An optional end trigger mode pre-records from 3 to 7 seconds before the MOVIE button is pressed, letting you capture even unpredictable moments decisively.
Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ shows what you aim forThe retractable Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder's resolution is equivalent to 2359K dots. The bright, self-illuminating OLED display offers high contrast, excellent for previewing shots and setting adjustments. EVF eyepiece optics are treated with ZEISS® T* Coating to reduce unwanted reflections and ensure corner-to-corner visibility.
180 ° tiltable LCD screen for flexible compositionThe high-resolution 3-inch type screen with tilt capability is perfect for taking selfies and framing of otherwise impossible overhead or low-angle shots. You can use it in high/low shooting positions for greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.
Custom button for creative convenienceThe custom (C) button can be programmed to control any of up to 62 different camera functions, to adapt the camera's capabilities to your shooting style. By assigning a frequently-used function or setting to this button you can recall it again instantly - for faster, more intuitive camera operation.
Shoot almost anywhere with wide ISO sensitivityCapture crisper images, even in low light, with sensitivity up to ISO 12800. The Auto ISO mode can automatically determine optimal settings, or manually select expanded ISO settings as low as ISO 80. In addition to Auto ISO, you can specify minimum limits for shutter speed, to prevent blur even in low light situations.
Dual Rec12 still shooting during movie recordingShoot still images of 17MP13 while recording a movie. The camera enables you to capture impressive high-quality stills even in movie-shooting. Auto Dual Rec release function lets the camera automatically take photos during movie recording. Select frequency of Auto Dual Rec release from high/standard/low settings.
Bright MonitoringMake sure your images are correctly framed, even when shooting starry skies or other dark scenes. The image on the display or viewfinder can be temporally boosted to assist with composition using a simple menu selection or custom button assignment, without compromising the final captured image.
My Menu your wayWith My Menu, you can register menu items for instant recall and customize menus. You can also make button assignments14 for up to 30 functions to retool the camera interface for your shooting preferences.
MF Assist and enhanced peaking functionIncrease focusing accuracy, or fine-tune manual focusing with these focusing assistants. Manual Focus (MF) Assist magnifies any part of the image area to enable more precise adjustment, while the enhanced peaking function highlights in-focus regions for quick and easy focus confirmation. Both the magnification and peaking colors are customizable and perfect for intricate focusing requirements such as during macro shooting.
High-quality movies in XAVC S10 or AVCHD formatDesigned for professional videography, as well as efficient file sizes, XAVC S10 recording provides minimal image noise, even in scenes full of movement, at up to 4K4, 3 resolution and 100 Mbps. For less demanding applications, and easy sharing, the AVCHD format is also available.
Diverse movie functions supporting pro-style usageIn addition to simple point-and-shoot movie making, advanced recording functions include Picture Profile settings to adjust color space, gamma and other image characteristics. With S-Log2 capability, video can be captured with a wide dynamic range for post-production and camera matching purposes. In addition, timecode and proxy recording capabilities allow for integration into professional productions and workflows.
One-touch remote/One-touch sharingWith one-touch remote, a smartphone or tablet functions as a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to the device. Just install an Imaging Edge Mobile16 app via Wi-Fi to an NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. QR code compatibility allows connection with non-NFC smartphones.
Capture One (for Sony)17Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning image editing software that provides high-end image quality RAW development, easy management of your image files, and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.
