Faster, more precise AF

First in RX100 series with 0.05-sec. AF speed

The improved autofocus is the result of a cutting-edge AF system that combines super-fast 0.05-second AF speed and the 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 the world’s widest coverage (65% of new image sensor’s image area) for consistent AF and tracking, even of small, fast-moving subjects. 

Autofocus achieved in just 0.05 seconds

Autofocus achieved in just 0.05 seconds

The Fast Hybrid AF system, combining high-speed phase-detection AF with extremely accurate contrast-detection AF, allows the camera to lock onto and capture moving subjects in merely 0.05 seconds

Continuous shooting 24fps

Shoot continuously at up to 24fps with AF/AE tracking precision

Smoother tracking captures full glory with reduced blackout

Capture 20.1 MP high-resolution images at up to 24fps high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking for up to 150 shots . Reduced blackout makes it easier to track moving subjects on EVF/LCD screen.

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 mode.

Advanced image processing system 

Behind advanced AF and continuous shooting

Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor, BIONZ X™ and front-end LSI

 The newly developed 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor featuring focal plane phase-detection AF sensor, the high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine and upgraded front-end LSI that supports image processing are efficiently controlled. Together, they achieve 0.05-sec. AF response and high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking at up to approx. 24fps.

No.1 image sensor manufacturer for digital cameras and video recorders.

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. 

Outstanding image quality and continuous shooting

Extends support of 4K high resolution

Focus sharpens with Fast Hybrid AF

Fast Hybrid AF with wide autofocus coverage supports focusing and tracking accuracy that is outstanding enough to surpass the rigorous standards required for 4K movie shooting

Going beyond basic 4K requirements

4K movie recording featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning condenses about 1.7 times as much data as is required for 4K movies so 4K movie output looks unbeatably brilliant. 

Going beyond basic 4K requirements

Super slow motion

Double recording duration to capture more action

Extended super slow motion at up to 960fps 

The RX100 V can record movies in super slow motion at up to 960fps (40x normal frame rate) for twice as long as its predecessor, so you can capture more of the details that express action most memorably.

More versatile functions

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.
