Overview

*** PLEASE NOTE: This camera must be used with a memory card of 64GB or greater in order to shoot beyond the standard 1080p resolution and utilize the HFR function.

Shoot beyond human vision.

Super potential. Super reality.
Inside the compact RX100 IV is the world's first memory-attached 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor — a remarkable advance in image shooting possibilities. Use it to reveal the wonders of up to 40x super slow motion2, super-high-speed 1/32000 sec. Anti-Distortion Shutter, and handy 4K movies. Now explore infinite imaging freedom beyond imagination.

Features

ZEISS®Vario-Sonnar T* lens for high depiction

Large-diameter ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm1 F1.8-2.8 lens allows wide-angle shooting out to 24 mm. Maximum aperture of F2.8 brightness at the telephoto end enables shooting images without camera shake and subject motion blur and capturing photos (such as portraits) with beautiful background defocusing. ZEISS T* Coating reduces ghost and flare.

20.1 MP (effective) 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor

The world's first 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 40x super slow motion and up to 1/32000 sec. super-high-speed shutter beyond human perception. The extended circuit features higher signal processing capacity and more than five times faster high-speed readout than conventional models.

BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture

Digital cameras convert light captured by their sensor into digital images. Since the engine that powers conversion is as important as your lens and sensor, the RX100 IV features the high-speed BIONZ X processor for more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise while shooting photos and movies.

Super slow motion at maximum of 40x

Using the mode dial to select HFR, it's easy to create super slow motion movies containing split-second moments of action. Choose shooting frame rates of 960/1000fps, 480/500fps, or 240/250fps (NTSC/PAL), depending on which is most suitable for your needs. The end trigger mode also enables you to capture 2 or 4 seconds before the MOVIE button is pressed, letting you capture the decisive moment.

*PLEASE NOTE: This camera must be used with a memory card of 64GB or greater in order to shoot beyond 1080p and utilize the HFR function.

Super-high-speed shutter of 1/32000 sec.

This next-generation 1/32000 sec. super-high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter works to minimize image distortion caused by the rolling shutter phenomenon. The extraordinarily fast shutter speed also allows you to produce photos with background defocusing using a large aperture setting even under extremely bright conditions at a maximum of EV 19.6

Up to 16fps continuous shooting without blackout

Thanks to the new super-high-speed image sensor—and despite its 20.1 MP high pixel count—the camera features accelerated readout speed that helps achieve continuous shooting up to 16fps. This lets you capture moments of fleeting beauty or facial expressions.

180° tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

High-resolution 3.0-type screen with tilt capability is perfect for taking selfies and framing of otherwise impossible overhead or low-angle shots. You can use it in high/low shooting positions for greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.

Control ring for advanced photography

Convenient lens-mounted control ring allows you to operate pro-style manual control such as selecting shutter speed, aperture, and more for added creative command — another feature making this camera an ideal choice for serious photographers.

Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder for inspired shooting

High-contrast retractable electronic viewfinder (EVF) delivers high resolution equivalent to 2,359k dots. Stunning resolution and self-illumination allow the subtlest details to be displayed for precise composition. EVF eyepiece optics are treated with ZEISS T* Coating to reduce unwanted reflections for clear corner-to-corner visibility.

Connect to smartphones and tablets with one touch

Instantly transfer a photo or movie to your Android™ smartphone or tablet simply by touching it with the camera — using downloadable PlayMemories Mobile and built-in Wi-Fi and NFC™ (Near Field Communication). One touch can also activate Smart Remote Embedded, for remote control of the camera from a mobile device and movie recording start/stop.

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

The camera adopts Fast Intelligent AF featuring high-speed, highly accurate contrast-detection autofocus. Improved from the AF system used in α7 series, it achieves focus by minimizing wasted lens motion, predicting AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture even more fleeting moments.

Direct 4K movie recording via camera alone

The RX100 IV can record high-precision 4K movie data. Moreover, stunning high-precision 4K images with suppressed moiré and jaggies can be delivered via data readout without pixel binning or line skipping.

Custom button creative convenience

The custom (C) button allows you to program one of over 40 possible functions to best adapt the camera's capabilities to your shooting style. By assigning a frequently used function or a preferred setting to this button, you can call it up promptly. You'll gain handy fingertip access to your selection — for faster, more intuitive camera operation.

Support for PlayMemories Camera Apps (PMCA)

Enjoy a camera that gains functionality with time. Choose from the growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps for remote control, picture and video effects, and much more. Installation is simple using your PC or the camera's own Wi-Fi connection.

Shoot almost anywhere with wide ISO sensitivity

Sensitivity extends right up to ISO 12800, for crisper images in extremely low light. Let Auto ISO mode determine the most appropriate setting automatically, or manually expand sensitivity as low as ISO 80. The camera also allows you to set up lower limit shutter speed at time of Auto ISO setting.

Bright Monitoring

This function that boosts image brightness, for example, can be assigned to a customizable button for easy access when shooting a starry sky or other dark scene.

Dual Rec still shooting during movie recording

Shoot still images of 17 MP while recording a movie. The camera enables you to capture impressive high-quality stills even if shooting movies. New Auto Dual Rec release function lets the camera automatically take photos during movie recording. Select frequency of Auto Dual Rec release from high/standard/low settings.

Various shutter functions now enhanced

Shutter-related functions have been improved. For example, the self-timer function now supports bracket shooting, so you can use this valuable feature even in situations when you can't release the shutter yourself. The number of exposure bracket shots is expanded to nine.

Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

Simply press the shutter button halfway to activate Lock-on AF. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size. Improve tracking performance and take full advantage of every photo opportunity.

MF Assist and Peaking functions for focus refinement

These features help you fine-tune the focus as you desire. Manual Focus (MF) Assist magnifies the area you are focusing on to enable more precise adjustment, while Peaking highlights the sharpest or most in-focus area with your choice of color to help determine whether further focusing adjustment is required.

Choose pro-quality XAVC S9 or AVCHD movie recording

Especially for serious videographers, XAVC S format provides low compression for high-quality movie expression and minimal noise even in scenes full of movement. You also have AVCHD format for easy editing and sharing. This camera uses 4K codec supporting 4K movie recording at up to 100 Mbps and additionally enables Full HD image recording.

Diverse movie functions supporting pro-style usage

Various available movie functions include Picture Profile (that determines the character of movies by changing basic parameters like chromogenic effects and gradation adjustment), S-Log gamma (that extends the dynamic range of recording to reduce occurrence of blown-out highlights and black crush), TC/UB, Rec Control, Dual Video Recording, etc.

Remote Camera Control supported

When the camera is connected to a computer, you can use Remote Camera Control to take pictures or change settings on the camera from the computer connected via USB port. All you need is to download the Remote Camera Control application of a version that supports your PC.
