Sony Cyber-shot RX10


In terms of ports, the Sony RX10 is also the best equipped of the three featuring a 3.5mm jack for an external microphone (so you can connect mics here or via the hotshoe), another 3.5mm jack for headphones (to monitor audio), along with a Micro HDMI...

Very high quality 24-200mm equivalent zoom ; Constant f2.8 aperture; good quality even wide open ; Comfortable and tough weather-sealed body ; Superb large and detailed electronic viewfinder ; Fast continuous shooting: 10fps for 2.5 seconds ; Powerful...

Slow zoom control, especially when filming ; Laborious to manually set AF area ; No touch-screen ; Can’t control AF while filming ; Disappointing Continuous AF ; Basic smartphone remote control ; No GPS tagging with Sony app ; No interval timer ; No...

Let's not beat about the bush here: the Sony RX10 is the most powerful and capable bridge camera to date, but it's also the most expensive. So that's the non-shocker here: pay more, get more. But the interesting part is someone thought to take the...

The Sony Cyber-shot RX10 is essentially a RX100 with a massive 24-200mm f/2.8 lens. And it looks like this is going to be a great combination.

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 review


When we first heard about the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 our ears pricked up with joy. A superzoom-esque camera with a 24-200mm f/2.8 equivalent lens and the same 1-inch sensor as found in the award-winning Cyber-shot RX100 II - could the RX10 be the...

Decent image quality, constant f/2.8 aperture, physical aperture ring, great for video capture, weather-sealed, close-up focus is brilliant, fast autofocus, tilt-angle LCD very useful, great electronic viewfinder

Zoom lens slow to travel, aperture click on/off switch placement, it's DSLR in its scale, could do with greater focal length, it's a lot of cash, no touchscreen, no pinpoint autofocus, who's it aimed at

There's no doubting that the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 has a huge list of positives under its belt - that sharp, bright lens and constant f/2.8 aperture; the large sensor; the physical aperture ring; speedy autofocus; and a great LCD and viewfinder...

There is a lot to love about the RX10, including a fast long lens and large sensor. As long as you can stomach the price, you will be rewarded with great photo and video quality.

Dust and moisture-resistant body ; Adjustable aperture ring around the lens ; Fast and constant f/2.8 lens with large sensor ; Clean HDMI output for video recording ; Excellent video capabilities

It's an investment camera ; AF can sometimes have issues in very low light ; In-camera battery charging

It certainly stands alone in the field of superzooms — there really isn't any comparison on the market at all. If you are in the market for a fixed-lens camera that can (almost) do it all, the RX10 is hard to pass by.
