Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV review

 

Like its predecessor, the RX100 IV is expensive, but it's also the best compact camera you can buy.

1-inch, 20.1MP “stacked” CMOS sensor ; Outstanding photos and videos ; 4K and super-slow-motion modes ; Improved EVF

Even pricier than before ; Limited focal range ; Mediocre battery life

Like the RX100 Mark III, the Mark IV earns our Editor’s Choice. This small package is expensive and it’s a niche camera, but it’s possibly the best compact digicam you can buy; there is some truly amazing enhanced performance over its predecessor and...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV offers serious video improvements over the RX100 III, but it is very expensive for a compact camera.

Wide-aperture zoom lens. 1-inch image sensor. Strong low light performance. 16.1fps burst shooting. Customizable controls. Large, tilting LCD. Pop-up OLED EVF. Quick autofocus. Raw shooting support. Wi-Fi with NFC. Super slow-motion video. 4K recording.

Expensive. Short zoom range. Omits hot shoe. External charger not included.

Conclusions Sony has added features to its RX100 line with each new generation. The Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV is a more iterative update to its predecessor in terms of imaging capability, with the main benefit being a faster burst capture rate. Its EVF...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review

 

Sony rejuvenated the premium compact market in 2012 when it introduced the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. The RX100 took a 1"-type sensor and relatively fast zoom lens and put it into a body that can slip into your pocket. Every year since has seen the arrival...

Some of the best image quality in any compact camera, ever Impressively sharp 24-70mm equiv lens remains usefully bright throughout zoom range Impressive image stabilization for stills, dramatically effective in video Well implemented Eye AF system...

Extensive feature set overwhelms the user interface As a twin-dial camera, could be programmed better to make full use of both dials Expensive compared to rivals Short battery life Lock-on AF can be unpredictable and laggy Lens range will be limiting...

The RX100 IV continues the line's tradition of packing as much image and video quality into as small a package as possible. The RX100 IV is also an incredibly responsive camera; fast and ready to churn out high quality images and video with tools...

Sony DSC-RX100M4

 

Sony has announced two new high-end RX-series point-and-shoot cameras for 2015. Meaning, these digicams might not have interchangeable lenses, but their performance specifications best many entry-to-mid-level DSLRs and Mirrorless ILCs.

A Review of the Sony RX100 IV Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 4k Digital Camera

 

The RX100 IV is Sony's fourth instalment in the RX100 range, and it's safe to say that it's currently one of the leaders in the high end compact camera category. The RX100 IV takes superbly vivid, crisp, colourful images that can match up to and in...

4K video shooting up to 960 fps ; Super slow and super-speed shooting ; Great bright condition & low light condition shooting ; High speed continuous shooting at 16 fps ; 180 degrees tiltable LCD Screen

Poor auto-focus system due to lack of touchscreen ; Poor battery life ; Unable to shoot in raw in certain camera settings

The RX100 IV takes superbly vivid, crisp and striking images that can match up to and in some cases surpass even high end DSLRs. It shoots real 4K video and is the world’s first camera to have a 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor. The camera has a...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review

 

The latest version of Sony's popular RX100 range of compact cameras, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV, features a brand new sensor design. It retains the same pixel count as its predecessor, at 20.1 million, but a new stacked Exmor RS design sees a...

Sony has made some good improvements to what is already an excellently performing camera, but there are still a few small problems with the RX100 IV which make it just slightly less than perfect. Even if you can put the extremely high price aside...

Sony RX100 IV Review

 

Sony keeps upping the ante with their RX100-series of premium compact cameras. Now on its fourth-generation model, the Sony RX100 IV introduces a host of performance-oriented improvements and new features, including 4K video capture, 16fps continuous...

Vastly improved burst speeds with deep buffer; Great performance with very fast autofocus; Very high resolution gives lots of detail in good light; High ISO noise levels much better than most pocket camera rivals; High-quality 4K video with...

Pricey for a compact camera; JPEGs can look over-processed at higher ISOs; Lens doesn't offer as much telephoto reach; Battery life not as good as predecessor; 24-70mm-equivalent lens can feel limiting

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VA

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VA camera sports the same bright lens and image sensor as the RX100 V, with improvements limited to its menu system and JPG engine.

Larger sensor than smartphones. Wide aperture lens. Speedy autofocus and burst shooting. In-lens neutral density filter. 4K video.

Restricted functionality after long bursts and slow-motion video capture. Not a touch screen. Expensive.

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV is a high-end compact aimed at enthusiasts. Announced in June 2015, it's the fourth in the RX100 series, which has deservedly become one of Sony's most successful product lines, packing a larger than average sensor into a...

Pocket body with good quality 1in sensor ; Bright 24-70mm f1.8-2.8 lens range with ND filter ; Great quality viewfinder which folds into body ; 4k video and fantastic slow motion modes from 4 to 40x ; Tilting screen flips-up to face subject for selfies...

No touch-screen ; Too many button presses to reposition AF area ; Limited control over autofocus in movies ; No GPS logging in smartphone app ; Duplicate menus for downloaded apps ; 4k video clips limited to five minutes ; High price compared to rival...

The Sony RX100 IV is arguably the most powerful compact camera around, packing a wealth of features to delight still photographers and videographers into a genuinely pocketable body. The combination of high-end features in a small body are what makes...

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV: Sony puts a premium on their premium compact camera

 

Sony's top of the line RX100 camera is back with a brand-new stacked Exmor sensor that gives it superfast superpowers. It's also more expensive - so how does the new RX100 IV perform and is it worth the higher price?

Exciting video features ; Faster shutter speed options ; All-around a great premium compact

The price just keeps going up and up ; Battery life is lower than previous model

If you want the best premium compact camera in the world today, it's hard to beat the Sony RX100 IV. This is a camera that produces high-quality stills with a large 1" sensor, with leading-edge features like high-speed shooting and high frame-rate...
