Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII point-and-shoot is a modest update to the RX100 VI, offering better autofocus and video stabilization for a bit more money.

Sharp 8x zoom lens. Electronic viewfinder. 1-inch sensor design. 20fps capture with subject tracking. Eye detection for people and pets. Tilting touch screen. 4K video with external microphone port.

Expensive. Can't start video while images are writing to card. Limited touch functions.

Bottom Line: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII point-and-shoot is a modest update to the RX100 VI, offering better autofocus and video stabilization for a bit more money.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII is the most capable pocket camera currently on the market thanks to a combo of good image quality, smooth stabilized 4K and an industry-leading autofocus implementation. For these reasons it receives our gold award.

The RX100 VII is the most capable pocket camera ever made, both in terms of video and stills. But on paper it doesn't seem to offer much over the RX100 VI: the lens is the same, the pixel count is the same, the body is unchanged and image/video quality...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII Review in Progress

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII is a high-speed, large sensor long zoom compact. It uses the same 24-200mm equiv lens as its predecessor but claims to incorporate the capabilities of the pro sports-oriented a9 in a pocketable format.

The Sony RX100 VII is a refresh, rather than full-scale upgrade of the popular RX100 series, but does this pocket-powerhouse do enough to tempt you?

Great image quality;Manual controls;Good video options

Very high price ;No front grip ;Fiddly buttons

Sony RX100 VII review: The compact king keeps its crown

 

Sony's powerful, portable compact camera is a fantastic advertisement for the limping segment of the market.

Powerful video/stills quality ; Image stabilisation ; Mic input ; Fast and accurate autofocus ; Decent low-light performance ; Tiny size considering its 1in sensor ; Useful pop-up viewfinder

Battery doesn't last all that long ; Shutter button needs more feedback/travel and buttons are too small ; Zoom limits maximum aperture at longer focal lengths ; It's really expensive

About as perfect as small-scale, high-end compact cameras get. If you can afford one, that is, as this has never been a budget series.

Sony RX100 VII review: The saviour of the compact camera?

 

The RX100 VII could be a great choice for travellers with strict weight requirements - and deep pockets

Great video features ; Beautifully made, beautifully small ; Excellent stills gathering performance

Image quality good rather than great ; Relatively poor low-light images

Stills photographers will need to carefully weigh up the pros and cons – sure, it’s light and small, but image quality takes a real knock, particularly when compared to mirrorless and interchangeable-lens cameras around this price. If you’re shooting...

Goondu review: Sony RX100 VII September 15th, 2019 | by Wilson Wong Imaging 0 PHOTO: Handout

 

The Sony RX100 VII is the camera for folks who want a bit more quality than from a smartphone and who want it in a still relatively small package.
