The best-performing compact with 1.0-type sensor
Meet the RX100 V — the ultimate compact for capturing movies and stills in captivating detail. This camera inherits the RX100 series’ renowned 1.0-type image sensor, and advances with blazing-fast 0.05-second autofocus, 315 AF points for the world’s most1 comprehensive phase-detection coverage of its kind, continuous shooting up to 24 fps with AF/ AE tracking, as well as outstanding 4K movie capabilities.
Immortalize an instant
Get faster on the draw to capture more fleeting candid moments. The RX100 V delivers a comprehensive high-speed AF system to the RX100 family of premium compact cameras renowned for superior quality and versatility in every shot.
World’s most comprehensive AF coverage (315 phase-detection points)
Featuring the highest number of focal plane phase-detection AF points(315) over the widest portion of the newly developed 1.0-type image sensor’s pixel area (approx. 65%) in the world, the camera’s autofocus offers such dense, widespread coverage that it captures even small, fast-moving subjects beyond the reach of less capable AF systems.
World’s fastest (0.05 sec) AF speed
The RX100 V, featuring the world’s fastest AF speed (0.05 sec.), is the first RX100 series camera integrating the Fast Hybrid AF system’s autofocusing performance and the BIONZ XTM image processing engine’s uncanny efficiency at handling information. The benefit: capability to capture decisive moments more immediately.
World's fastest continuous shooting up to 24fps with AF/AE
Now, you can shoot even greater moments of glory. New high-speed front-end LSI (large scale integration) enables the camera to continuously shoot over-20-megapixel images at up to 24fps with AF/AE tracking for up to 150 shots at a time. This capability distinguishes the RX100 V as a powerful high performance compact camera that’s ideal for capturing climactic moments in incredible detail.
Smoother, clearer tracking on display
Thanks to reduced blackout, electronic viewfinder and LCD screen, views look smooth and clear – even while the camera tracks focus or continuously shoots at up to 24fps so you can see fine details in images that you’re monitoring, even in fleeting moments of fast-moving action.
AF-A mode automatically switches focus modes
A combination of data for color, brightness and phase-detection acquired by the camera is applied for AF-A mode to automatically switch between AF-S (Single AF: locks the focus while the shutter button is pressed halfway) and AF-C (Continuous AF: keeps focusing on subjects while the shutter button is pressed halfway) modes, as conditions change (such as when a subject suddenly starts moving).
A new system that’s unsurpassed
Speed and power are the hallmarks of still and movie shooting performance, so this cutting-edge compact combines a newly developed 1.0-type Exmor RSTM CMOS image sensor with about 20.1 effective megapixels introducing the RX100 series’ first Fast Hybrid AF system; the mighty BIONZ X image processing engine; and front-end LSI (large scale integration) that helps process massive amounts of image data immediately This seamless integration of imaging system innovation makes the RX100 V more than responsive and capable enough to accommodate high-speed autofocus and fast continuous shooting.
Incomparably fast and efficient flow of data from the image sensor enables the camera to shoot at up to 1/32000 sec. shutter speed, and eliminates skewing that can distort images of fast movement, such as a golf swing or moving wheel.
Faster processing power for continuous shooting
Image processing speed and capability are enhanced so the camera can capture even high-resolution 20.1MP image sequences at up to 24fps very clearly. Buffer capacity is also increased, so that data for shots that you take in continuous shooting mode is processed instantly, for more spontaneous, immediate, comfortable shooting.
Fast Hybrid AF for movies
The first RX100 series camera with Fast Hybrid AF for shooting movies as well as stills features a focal plane phase detection AF sensor for focusing and tracking accurate enough even for the rigors of 4K movie shooting. AF drive speed and AF tracking sensitivity are adjustable by menu, giving you flexibility to focus according to movie shooting intentions and conditions.
4K movie recording
The camera can record movies in 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) with full pixel readout without pixel binning. Such 4K movies contain approx. 1.7 times as much information as is minimally required for 4K movie output. This gives 4K movie images even more outstanding resolution that complements reduced moiré and jaggies.
Super slow motion duration doubled
The RX100 V not only inherits capability to record super slow motion footage that’s up to 40x slower in playback than natural motion; it can also record at such a high frame rate for over twice as long as was previously possible with the RX100 series. So you can watch high quality super slow motion movie action as an even more extended series of incremental movements that reveal details that your eyes are unable to perceive as a fleeting moment unfolds in real time.
Massive performance in diminutive form
The remarkably compact built-in ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm* F1.8-2.8 lens is seamlessly integrated with the advanced image sensor, BIONZ image processing engine, and LSI technology. This makes the legendary lens perfectly suited for this premium compact camera that is firmly focused on unbeatable autofocus response and image quality.
Wi-Fi / NFCTM / QR code
With One-touch remote, a smartphone or tablet functions as a viewfinder/ remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to the device. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile™ app via Wi-Fi to an NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. The camera also introduces QR code compatibility for easy connection with non-NFC smartphones.
