Staggering performance in a 1.0-type sensor compact
Meet the RX100 VA -- the ultimate compact for capturing movies and stills in captivating detail. This camera inherits the RX100 series' renowned 1.0-type image sensor, and advances with blazing-fast 0.05-second autofocus, 315 focal plane phase-detection AF points, continuous shooting up to 24 fps with AF/AE tracking, as well as outstanding 4K movie capabilities. The VA version improves upon the earlier "V" model by increasing the buffer size to 233 images.
Super-fast 0.05-sec. autofocus speed
The improved autofocus is the result of a cutting-edge AF system that combines super-fast 0.05-second AF speed and wide, dense AF coverage employing 315 phase-detection AF points.
Wide 315-AF-point coverage keeps action in focus
315 densely arrayed phase-detection AF points offer wide coverage (65% of image sensor's image area) for consistent AF and tracking, even of small, fast-moving subjects.
Smooth subject tracking with reduced blackout
Capture 20.1 MP images, at up to 24fps, continuously for up to 233 shots, and with full AF/AE tracking for each. With reduced blackout it's also easier to follow moving subjects on both the LCD screen or viewfinder.
The more quiet, the more candid
Switch to electronic shutter and deactivate sound to get close to and shoot pets and other subjects silently, even using continuous shooting modes.
The drive behind advanced AF and continuous shooting
Exmor RS® CMOS sensor, BIONZ X and front-end LSI
The 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor featuring focal plane phase-detection AF sensor, the advanced high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine and the front-end LSI that supports image processing are efficiently controlled. Together, they achieve 0.05-sec. AF response, high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking at up to approx. 24fps, higher perceived resolution and low noise levels as well as more accurate face and eye detection.
Outstanding image quality and continuous shooting
You needn't compromise image quality for shooting speed. The RX100 VA can capture high-resolution images of over 20 MP as quickly as 24fps, thanks to enhanced image processing capacity and response.
Sharper focus with Fast Hybrid AF
The Fast Hybrid AF system and wide autofocus coverage allow fast focusing speeds and high tracking accuracy to capture sharp images even when shooting 4K movies.
Making the most of 4K recordings
The RX100VA captures 4K movies using a full sensor readout, without the pixel binning common on other cameras. By condensing around 1.7x the image data into each 4K frame, fine details are rendered precisely with less moire and other image artefacts.
Extended super slow motion at up to 960fps
The RX100 V can record movies for super slow motion at up to 960fps (40x the normal frame rate). With twice the recording time of its predecessor, you can capture even more action, to express almost any activity more memorably.
Inheriting more versatile control
The RX100 V inherits the brilliant retractable OLED electronic viewfinder with anti-reflective ZEISS® T* Coating, multi-function control ring/custom buttons and 180-degree tiltable LCD screen that distinguish its predecessor.
