The Sony RX100 VI is a truly advanced compact and features a new Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm (equivalent) f/2.8-4.5 lens along with an improved Optical SteadyShot image stabilizer. The 20.1MP 1-inch Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor combines to give you incredible pro image quality for a compact camera.
Exmor RS 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor for speed
The 315-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides extraordinarily fast, precise autofocus and tracking. Furthermore, the 20.1 MP (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960 fps super-slow-motion shooting and an up to 1/32000 sec. super-high-speed anti-distortion shutter.
High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine
With faster processing speed than its predecessor, the advanced BIONZ X image processing engine contributes to the camera's high image quality, supporting improved AF/AE detection, processing speed, face and eye detection speed and accuracy, and minimised time lag on the viewfinder display.
Full zoom range
The camera's 24-200mm optics deliver superb image quality, which combined with high speed and pocket-sized portability makes it ideal for travel shooting or flexible professional work by even the most demanding users. In addition, Clear Image Zoom lets you further enlarge the centre of the image digitally up to twice as much (400mm equivalent) with almost no image degradation.
Compact optical design
Eight aspherical lens elements with 13 aspherical surfaces for high resolution to the edge of the image, across the zoom range. Four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses correct spherical and coma aberrations, and two ED glass elements suppress aberration, for high resolution even in the higher zoom range.
The image stabilisation delivers the equivalent of a 4.0-stop faster shutter speed at 200mm, compensating for camera shake during hand-held shooting even in telephoto or low-light conditions.
High-speed AF at 0.03 sec
Fast Hybrid AF responds in a super-fast 0.03-sec, seamlessly integrating the superlative speed and tracking of focal-plane phase-detection AF with high-accuracy contrast AF. It boosts the camera’s abilities to focus, track and capture sharp, clear still images of subjects in all situations, even in the middle of fast dynamic action.
Super slow motion up to 40x slower
The stacked CMOS sensor enables an extra-high frame rate of up to 960fps. Shooting at 200mm telephoto, it’s possible to record impressive close-up super slow motion footage. Shooting frame rate and recording setting can be set independently for 4x to 40x super slow motion footage.
Shoot at 24fps
The powerful combination of the Exmor RS 1.0-type image sensor and the BIONZ X image processing engine enables continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking at up to approx. 24fps for up to 23322 frames.
You can mute the camera's shutter sound in noise-sensitive settings, such as gatherings in quiet restaurants or cafes. The shutter sound can be muted even during continuous shooting.
Fast data readout from the Exmor RS image sensor noticeably reduces distortion in images of fast-moving subjects such as a golf club being swung quickly. The Anti-distortion electronic shutter achieves shutter speeds as fast as 1/32000 sec.
Smooth control interface
A lens-mounted control ring permits pro-style manual controls such as selection of shutter speed, aperture, and more, for added creative control. Additionally, the zoom lever has been redesigned for maximum operability of the zoom lens, which is now controlled in two steps by the inclination of the zoom lever.
Touch Shutter feature
For the first time in the RX series, the shutter can be operated by touching the LCD monitor, which now swings up 180° and down around 90°. Operation is intuitive and convenient, especially when shooting scenes from high or low angles.
XGA OLED Tru-Finder
The retractable Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder’s sharp resolution (2.35-milliion-dot-equivalent), bright self-illumination and high contrast are excellent for previewing shots and adjusting settings accordingly. EVF eyepiece optics are treated with ZEISS® T* Coating to reduce unwanted reflections and ensure corner-to-corner visibility.
4K movies recorded at full pixel readout
When shooting 4K (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.
One-touch remote/One-touch sharing
With one-touch remote, a smartphone or tablet functions as a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to the device. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile 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.
Location Information Link via Bluetooth
Location Information Link makes the most of the RX100 VI. The camera can be paired with the PlayMemories Mobile app on a compatible mobile device to acquire location data, record it on still images, and correct camera date/time and location. The PlayMemories Home app can be used on a personal computer to organise imported still images on a map.
