The Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 VII is an advanced, compact point-and-shoot camera and an update to the Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 VI. Key features include:
20.1MP 1-in. BSI stacked sensor; improved ISO range
Built-in Zeiss 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 Vario-Sonnar T* lens
Internal UHD 4K capture; burst shooting up to 90 fps
Integrated tiltable touchscreen LCD and pop-up EVF
What’s Changed? The Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 VII offers a few improvements over its predecessor. You get a faster continuous-shooting rate, a broader ISO range, a built-in mic input, a slightly improved autofocus system, an interval-recording option, a panorama option, and digital andoptical image stabilization.
20.1MP 1.0-inch BSI Stacked Sensor. The imaging aspect of the sensor is unchanged from the RX100 VI, using the same 1.0-inch BSI CMOS sensor with integrated DRAM chip. Sony’s crammed an intricate phase-detection autofocus system on the chip as well, and the BIONZ X image processor keeps performance speedy. The camera tops out at 20 fps blackout-free continuous shooting with autofocus tracking and gives you seven-shot burst shooting at up to 30/60/90 fps in JPEG/RAW. Finally, native ISOperformance has been expanded to 100 to 12800, which can be further extended to 64 to 25600.
Fast Hybrid Autofocus System. The RX100 VII’s autofocus system offers some improvements over the RX100 VI’s. It can lock onto subjects within 0.02 seconds, and its Eye AF tracking performance is twice as fast as its predecessor’s. Additionally, its fantastic on-sensor hybrid AF system offers 357 phase-detection points that cover 68% of the frame, and a 425-area contrast-detection system for speed and accuracy in a variety of shooting situations.
Integrated Wide-Angle to Telephoto Zoom Lens. The RX100 VII carries over its predecessor’s integrated Carl Zeiss 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 Vario-Sonnar T* (equivalent) lens, which gives you a versatile wide-angle to telephoto focal length.
Tiltable Touchscreen LCD and Integrated Pop-Up EVF. The 3.0-inch 921.6k-dot tilting rear touchscreen LCD lets you use Touch Focus, Touch Pad Autofocus, and Touch Shutter features, while offering 180° upward and 90° downward tilt, giving tripod and arm’s-length shooters plenty of options. The 2.36m-dot SVGA OLED pop-up electronic viewfinder is essentially the same as the Mark VI’s, providing users a pleasant traditional shooting experience.
Internal 4K Video (Burst). The RX100 VII shoots UHD 4K video at 24/30 fps in XAVC S format, using full pixel readout with no line skipping or pixel binning. The increased data throughput from the integrated DRAM chip also enables extremely fast Full HD 1080p capture at up to 960 fps. For advanced users, S-Log2, S-Log3, and HLG gammas are accessible, and the RX100 VII offers a Micro-HDMIoutput for 4:2:2 uncompressed video to an external recorder for more demanding shoots.
Advanced Controls. Like the other models in Sony’s RX series, this camera offers manual control options for advanced users, as well as iAUTO mode for those who just want to pick up and shoot. There’s a dedicated function button and manual control ring that can be programmed to offer quick adjustments of over forty different functions, allowing users to forego menu diving.
Built-In Wi-Fi. Allows wireless image transmission and camera control with compatible smartphones and tablets. This camera also supports NFC for one-touch connection between it and compatible mobile devices.
User Flexibility. The RX100 VII records images/video to SDHC/XC memory cards (not included) and is powered by the same NP-BX1 rechargeable lithium battery rated for 240 shots per charge. Please note that 4K video capture in S-Log2 and S-Log3 requires a UHS-I Class 3 or faster memory card.
Do I need to use a specific type of memory card for 100 Mbps 4K capture?
You must use a U3 SDXC memory card for 100 Mbps 4K capture.
