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.
Ultra-fast hybrid AF system
The fast, highly accurate autofocus can achieve a remarkable 0.02-sec. acquisition speed, the world's fastest, to capture fleeting moments with precision. A total of 357 focal-plane phase-detection AF points covering approx. 68% of the image area – work in conjunction with 425 contrast-detection AF points and High-density AF Tracking Technology to follow even erratically moving subjects reliably.
Up to 20 fps Blackout-free Shooting, up to 60 times/sec. AF/AE calculations
The new image sensor offers continuous shooting at up to 20fps, and the camera tracks subjects with AF/AE calculations at up to 60 times per second, even when they are moving erratically or at high speed. Blackout-free Shooting 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.
Single Burst Shooting captures 7 shots at up to 30/60/90 fps in JPEG/RAW
The new Single Burst Shooting function will capture the tiniest slices of daily life, such as the very instant a tennis ball hits the racket, and turn them into works of art. Take seven shots in rapid succession at selectable speeds of 90fps, 60fps or 30fps, all triggered by a single press of the shutter button. Even fast-moving subjects can be captured thanks to the Anti-distortion Shutter, in RAW as well as JPEG image formats.
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.
Newly developed 20.1MP10 1" Exmor RS® stacked BSI CMOS sensor w/ DRAM
The newly developed 20.1MP, 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor uses back-illumination technology with high light-collection efficiency and realizes fast readout to support the camera’s extraordinary responsiveness. The standard ISO range is 100-12800, expanded to ISO 64/80 for stills. The camera also takes advantage of improved filters to help achieve more realistic textures and color.
RX100 VII records 4K movies with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, with oversampling for high image quality. Extended continuous video recording is available when setting Auto Power OFF Temp. function to High. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) compatibility enables HDR capture and immediate playback without post-production, by connecting the camera to an HDR (HLG) compatible Sony TV via a USB cable. The wide color space and dynamic range available using S-Log profiles provides more creative freedom in post-production.
Active mode image stabilization in 4K video recording, and Movie Edit add-on compatible
RX100 VII now supports "Active" mode image stabilization for 4K movies, combining optical and electronic stabilization methods for compensation up to eight times more effective13 than the standard mode. Intelligent Active mode with Full HD recording provides smoother stabilization even for shooting while walking. The Movie Edit add-on mobile app helps achieve smoothness similar to using a gimbal.
Retractable OLED w/ EVF benefits and optical viewfinder immediacy
The RX100 VII maintains the convenient pocket-sized design of the RX100 family and is equipped with a high-contrast 2.35 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder, ensuring true-to-life image preview and playback functionality. With a single push, the EVF conveniently pops-up and automatically extends the eye-piece.
Super slow-motion movie HFR (High frame rate)
See the unseen with super speed HFR (High Frame Rate). The RX100 VII can capture super slow motion HFR movie at up to 40x slower than real time. You can choose from 960fps, 480fps or 240fps to playback in XAVC S at 1920 x 1080, in either 60p, 30p or 24p. Choose between “quality priority” (4 sec.). There’s also an option to set “start trigger” or “end trigger” which will start capturing movie before or after you press the movie rec. button so you can time those split-second moments perfectly.
