Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V review


If there's ever been a point-and-shoot that deserves a high price tag, it's Sony's RX100 Mark V.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V


Though its price is tough to swallow, the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V is Sony's most advanced pocket camera yet.

1-inch image sensor. Wide-aperture zoom lens. Strong low-light performance. Quick autofocus. 24fps burst shooting. Raw shooting support. Customizable controls. Tilting LCD. Pop-up OLED EVF. Wi-Fi with NFC. Super slow-motion HD video. 4K recording.

Very expensive. Competing models have longer zoom lenses. Omits hot shoe. Lacks touch screen. Long times to clear buffer and render HFR video.

Sony has pulled no punches in designing the RX100 V. The pocket compact has more tech than you'll find in many SLRs. It can shoot 20MP Raw images at 24fps while keeping moving subjects in focus, rolls both 4K footage and 1080p slow motion, and puts...

Sony RX100 V hands-on: Swift shooting and agile focusing but sluggish saving


The camera can now hit 24fps for continuous shooting, but the real improvement here is the modern autofocus system -- it's fast and accurate.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V Review


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V is the fifth generation of Sony's popular premium compact camera, introducing a number of improvements that focus on speed. At the heart of the RX100 V is a newly developed 20.1 megapixel 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS...

Sony RX100 V Review


Sony's RX100-series created the large-sensor compact camera category. Now, the Sony RX100 V takes it to the next level with performance that can blow away most interchangeable-lens cameras, yet in a package that can slip almost unnoticed into your...

Pocket-friendly design; Unbelievably fast burst capture; Generous buffer depth, even for raw; Fast and confident autofocus; Very high resolution gives lots of detail in good light; High ISO noise levels much better than most pocket camera rivals;...

Very pricey for a compact camera; Still no touch screen; Slow buffer clearing; JPEGs can look over-processed at higher ISOs; Lens doesn't offer much telephoto reach; Battery life is very modest; 4K movies are limited to five minute clips

Sony RX100 V review


The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V is a high-end compact aimed at enthusiasts. Announced in October 2016, it's the fifth in the RX100 series, which has deservedly become one of Sony's most successful product lines, packing a larger than average sensor and...

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 ; Confident photo and movie focusing with embedded...

No touch-screen. No grip to speak of ; 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...

Sony RX100 V Review


The RX100 series is Sony's attempt to make the ultimate point-and-shoot compact with a one-inch sensor. This fifth instalment from 2016 has since been succeeded, but not replaced, by the Sony RX100 VI. However, with the latter only bringing minor...

Small and lightweight Tilting screen Built-in electronic viewfinder Large sensor Fast frame rate 4K video recording

Very expensive Screen not touch-sensitive

The RX100 V remains one of the best small-sized compact cameras on the market. Only the lack of a touch-sensitive screen, poor battery life, and that extremely high asking price see it fall short of perfection.
