Features

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 24-70mm

  1. 35mm equivalent.
. 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 960 fps

  1. In NTSC mode. 1,000fps in PAL mode. NTSC/PAL are switchable on the menu.

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

  1. In comparison to DSC-RX100M4.
, to capture fast-moving subjects at up to 24fps
  1. With "Continuous shooting mode: Hi".
. 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.

  1. CIPA standard, internal measurement, at f=8.8 (wide-end), EV4.7, Program Auto, AF area: Wide, Focus Mode: AF-A.

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 prioritise that area, for focusing when your subject enters it, with just a single button tap.

Smooth-tracking continuous shooting up to 24fps

  1. With "Continuous shooting mode: Hi".

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.

Silent shooting for sensitive situations

You can mute the camera’s shutter sound by making the following camera settings: "Shutter type: Electronic" and "Audio signals: Off". This way, you can shoot quiet scenes and noise-sensitive subjects in silence, even during continuous shooting.

AF-A mode automatically switches focus mode

In 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 sec. Anti-Distortion Shutter

Up to 1/32000 sec. Anti-Distortion Shutter works to minimise 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 EV19

, thanks to the system’s focal plane phase-detection AF sensor that enables accurate focusing and tracking performance. 

Photo Capture creates clear stills from movies

The 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.

Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ shows what you aim for

The 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. 

Control ring for advanced photography

A convenient lens-mounted control ring allows you to operate pro-style manual control such as selecting shutter speed, aperture, and more for added creative command — another feature making this camera an ideal choice for serious photographers.

180° tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

The 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 convenience

The 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 sensitivity

Capture 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 Rec

  1. Dual Rec cannot be used when record setting is set as follows: RX100 V: 120p/100p (NTSC/PAL) or in 4K recording.
