The Sony RX100 VII is has the World's fastest AF performance among fixed lens cameras with 1.0-type sensor. The RX100 VII features the same shooting speed and AF performance as the Sony a9 mirrorless camera – up to 60 AF/AE calculations per second and an amazing 20 fps blackout-free continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF follows your subject's movements, human or animal, up to an incredible 90fps single burst shooting. These features are supported by the BIONZ X high-speed image processing engine, along with the newly developed Exmor RS 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor.
This pocket-sized marvel includes a high-performance 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* Lens and you can enjoy exploring new compositions and angles of your own perspective with the LCD touch screen – tiltable 180 degree and 90 degree down. The RX100 VII also includes enhanced video features with 4K HDR movie recording, real time tracking and real-time Eye AF and in 4K Active SteadyShot to reduce camera shake up to 8 times more effectively than previously available. Vertical position data recording transfers the file metadata straight to your smartphone, allowing you to replay and edit your videos in the most popular social media format.
FEATURE REEL IN 4K:
ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm1 F2.8-F4.5 high magnification zoom Lens
The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm1 F2.8-4.5 zoom lens covers a broad zoom range equivalent to two standard zoom lenses (24-70mm and 70-200mm), all in a very compact size. It's configured with eight aspherical lens elements to achieve maximum resolution, clarity and contrast across the entire zoom range, and all the way out to the edge of the image. Four of Sony's original AA (advanced aspherical) elements help minimize spherical, coma and chromatic aberrations.
Up to 20 fps4 Blackout-free Shooting, up to 60 times/sec. AF/AE calculations
The new image sensor offers continuous shooting at up to 20fps4, and the camera tracks subjects with AF/AE calculations at up to 60 times per second5, even when they are moving erratically or at high speed. Blackout-free Shooting6 lets you track your subject's movement without interruption on the camera's LCD display or viewfinder screen just as if you were following with the naked eye.
AI-based Real-time Tracking for stills and movies, and Touch Tracking
Real-time Tracking uses subject-recognition algorithms (AI)8 that draw on color, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth) and face/eye information to track subjects wherever they move. Maintaining a constant, steady focus on a moving subject helps capture every important moment of action as it happens, whether taking stills or movies. Tracking can also be initiated through Touch Tracking, for both stills and movies.
Real-time Eye AF for human (stills and movies), and for animal9 (stills only)
Real-time Eye AF detects subject's eyes and maintains focus as the subject moves, leaving you free to compose your shot. The subject's eyes are detected with half-press of the shutter, and it's possible to select either the left or right eye of the subject. It can be used in conjunction with Real-time Tracking, in which case the focus frame can seamlessly switch between the subject's face and eyes as the subject moves. Real-time Eye AF for Animals9 is also supported, helping to produce better pet portraits and wildlife shots.
4K HDR (HLG) video recording11, S-Log3 support, and Interval Shooting
RX100 VII records 4K movies with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, with oversampling for high image quality.
