Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI delivers premium image quality, fit and finish, and features in a pocketable form factor, but demands a hefty price.

8x zoom lens. Large 1-inch image sensor. 20MP resolution. Up to 24fps Raw image capture. Tilting LCD. Large pop-up EVF. 4K video with HDR support. Ultra slow-motion at 1080p.

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

Bottom Line: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI delivers premium image quality, fit and finish, and features in a pocketable form factor, but demands a hefty price.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC RX100 VI review

 

The Sony RX100 VI is a spectacularly capable travel camera, combining a flexible zoom range with impressive autofocus. But there's no getting around the fact that it's an expensive camera, and a longer lens comes with certain trade-offs. Read on for...

The RX100 VI is something of a departure for the RX100 series: offering a more extensive zoom range but giving up some of its large sensor's low light ability by pairing it with a less bright lens. This makes it much more of a do-everything family...

Sony RX100 VI adds 8x zoom, HLG HDR to its 1-inch compact line

 

The update to the RX100 series adds a Hybrid log gamma profile for HDR capture and extends the lens from 24-70mm to 24-200mm for more general-purpose flexibility.

Sony DSC-RX100 VI Review: One Packed Camera

 

While the Sony DSC-RX100 VI is a very capable bridge camera with powerful features, at $1,200, it's too pricey to recommend to most people. For $400 less, the Panasonic Lumix ZS200 offers about the same image quality and an even a longer optical zoom...

Very good quality and versatility in bright light ; Excellent electronic viewfinder ; Many shooting modes ; Lots of high-quality video options ; Shoots up to 24 frames per second ; RAW files

It's expensive ; Images and video are noisy in some low-light scenarios ; Can't capture time-lapse video clips

The Sony DSC-RX100 VI offers powerful features and very-good-quality images and video, but it's extremely pricey.

Sony RX100 VI

 

Sony RX100 VI review: What you need to know about Sony's compact camera, including the the RX100 VI's release date, price and specs.

Impressive lens gives sharp images all through its really useful zoom range ; Very good image quality with reliable exposure ; Remarkably fast autofocus and continuous shooting means you should never miss a shot ; Pop-up viewfinder and tilting screen...

Small, slippery body is far too easy to drop without an accessory grip ; Far too expensive compared to its competitors ; Tiny buttons can make operation frustrating ; Comparatively poor battery life

If you can afford it, and are prepared to put up with its foibles, the Sony RX100 VI is a phenomenally capable pocket travel camera, if not quite as good value as Panasonic’s TZ series.

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI review: A little camera with huge talent

 

If you're looking for an ultra-compact camera that can deliver great-looking photos and video in almost any situation, and you're willing to pay a big

Tiny size considering its 1in sensor ; Superb photo and video quality ; Fast and accurate autofocus ; Useful pop-up viewfinder ; Sturdy metal body

It’s very expensive ; Small buttons might irritate some ; New zoom limits maximum aperture at longer focal lengths

Sony RX100 VI review

 

A teeny zoom point-and-shoot compact camera that's good at almost everything

Stunning image quality ; Lovely build ; Excellent AF

Battery drains quite quickly ; It's so expensive

A dinky yet luxurious point-and-shoot that will zoom in on the action with razor precision delivering stunning images and video.

Sony RX100 VI review: The ideal pocket-sized snapper

 

Sony's RX series is the top of the line for their compact cameras, with the RX100 VI is the latest addition to the family. We take this pocket-sized compact through its paces to see how it fares.

Great zoom range for such a small camera;Fast response;Small and lightweight

Price is high for a compact camera;Softness towards the corners of images
