Staggering performance in a 1.0-type sensor compact

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-second1 autofocus, 315 focal plane phase-detection AF points, continuous shooting up to 24fps2 with AF/AE tracking, as well as outstanding 4K movie capabilities. 

Outstanding image quality and continuous shooting

You needn't compromise image quality for shooting speed. The RX100 V can capture high-resolution images of over 20 MP as quickly as 24fps, thanks to enhanced image processing capacity and response. 

24fps Continuous Shooting

With AF/AE tracking precision

Capture 20.1 MP images, at up to 24fps, continuously for up to 233 shots, and with full AF/AE tracking for each. With reduced blackout, it's also easier to follow moving subjects on both the LCD screen or viewfinder.

Super-fast 0.05-sec. autofocus speed 

The improved autofocus is the result of a cutting-edge AF system that combines super-fast 0.05-second AF speed and wide, dense AF coverage employing 315 phase-detection AF points. 

Wide 315-AF-point coverage keeps action in focus

315 densely arrayed phase-detection AF points offer wide coverage (65% of the image sensor's image area) for consistent AF and tracking, even of small, fast-moving subjects. 

The more quiet, the more candid

Switch to electronic shutter and deactivate sound to get close to and shoot pets and other subjects silently, even using continuous shooting modes. 

 

Extended Super Slow Motion

At up to 960fps

The RX100 V can record movies for super slow motion at up to 960fps (40x the normal frame rate). With twice the recording time of its predecessor, you can capture even more action, to express almost any activity more memorably.

 

Making the most of 4K recordings

The RX100V captures 4K movies using a full sensor readout, without the pixel binning common on other cameras. By condensing around 1.7x the image data into each 4K frame, fine details are rendered precisely with less moire and other image artefacts.

Inheriting more versatile control

The RX100 V inherits the brilliant retractable OLED electronic viewfinder with anti-reflective ZEISS® T* Coating, multi-function control ring/custom buttons and 180-degree tiltable LCD screen that distinguish its predecessor.
