Sony announces Cyber-shot RX100 VI with 24-200mm

9129041858

Sony has announced the Cyber-shot RX100 VI, a 1″-type compact camera with a 20.1-megapixel Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor, 24-200mm equivalent F2.8-4.5 zoom lens, 315 phase detection points covering approximately 65% of the sensor, and the ability to shoot at 24 fps with autofocus.

The RX100 VI becomes the first in the Cyber-shot RX100-series to gain a touchscreen, allowing both touch shutter and touch focus. The screen can tilt up to 180 degree upwards and 90 degree downwards, extending shooting flexibility. The new camera is essentially the same size as its predecessor the RX100 V, but its depth has been increased slightly, by 1.8mm.

The RX100 VI includes the latest Bionz X processor with front-end LSI, as used in the most recent Alpha cameras

Sony says that the RX100 VI contains processing and experience developed in the creation of the a9 sports camera. It includes the latest Bionz X processor with front-end LSI, as used in the most recent Alpha cameras. This helps give what the company says is the world’s fastest AF (measured at 0.03 seconds) and with twice the EyeAF tracking performance of the Mark V.

The RX100 VI’s 24-200mm lens comprises 15 elements in 12 groups, featuring two ED (extra-low dispersion) aspherical glass elements and eight aspherical lens elements including four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses. Sony describes the pocketable camera as having “two lenses worth of interchangeable lens”, incorporating the range of a 24-70mm lens and a 70-200mm in one “do anything” camera. Meanwhile, it offers a claimed 4EV of image stabilization. Unlike its predecessor, there is no ND filter for video shooters. The RX100 VI’s XGA OLED pop-up EVF is similar to previous models in the series, but once popped-up, the finder optics no longer need to be manually extended for use.

On the video front, the RX100 VI is capable of full-width, oversampled 4K video with support for 8-bit HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) for easy HDR capture. The RX100 VI is also able to record superslow motion video at either 250, 500 or 1000 fps.

The new Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI will ship next month, priced at $1200
