Sony RX100 V Cyber-shot Digital Camera
Introducing a new level of AF performance and speed to today’s compact camera market. The RX100 V boasts the world’s fastest AF speed1 (0.05 sec.)2, world’s fastest continuous shooting1 speed (24fps)3 with world’s most AF points1 315 for a compact camera.
World’s fastest1 (0.05 sec.)2 hybrid AF system (contrast + phase)
The RX100 V brings a new level of AF performance and speed to compact cameras. It is equipped with a fast hybrid autofocus system – the world’s fastest1 - that combines the respective advantages of focal-plane phase detection AF and contrast detection AF that ultimately enables the camera to lock focus in as fast as 0.05 seconds2.
World’s most - 315 phase detection - AF points on a compact camera
High speed focusing is a perfect complement to the world’s highest number of dedicated focal plane phase detection AF points on a compact camera. The 315 AF points - that cover 65% of the RX100 V’s 1” sensor - ensure that shooters will be able to capture their intended subject with high speed and accuracy, even if it’s moving rapidly in unpredictable directions.
20.1MP 1" Exmor RS stacked back illuminated CMOS sensor w/ DRAM
This large 1” (1.0-type) stacked back illuminated Exmor RS image sensor with DRAM chip not only enhances efficiency and speed of A/D conversion through its stacked structure with more circuit sections; it also realizes super-fast readout speed - thanks to a DRAM chip integrated into the sensor structure. Together with the BIONZ X processing engine and front-end LSI, it allows for stunning 20.1-megapixels at up to 24fps3 continuous shooting, blazingly fast shutter speed of up to 1/32000 sec., breathtaking 4k movie and super slow-motion HFR (High Frame Rate) movie clip recording of up to 960fps (40x), not to mention remarkable low-light low-noise capability.
Retractable OLED w/ EVF benefits and optical viewfinder immediacy
The new RX100 V maintains the convenient pocket-sized design of the remainder 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. The EVF conveniently retracts in and out of the camera body and features optics with ZEISS T* coating that greatly reduces reflections. It has the ability to deliver continuous live shooting at up to 8fps - making it easy to track fast moving subjects. This offers photographers a shooting experience with the immediacy of an optical viewfinder, while still offering all of the benefits of an electronic viewfinder including a live preview of exposure, white balance and several other camera settings.
Photo capture from video
High-quality 8-megapixels stills can be extracted from 4K video6 and 2-megapixels from Full HD video in camera during playback and stored as separate file son the media card.
Selfie-ready multi-angle 3 Xtra Fine LCD studying
Selfies have never been easier with a beautiful 3” (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine LCD Display that rotates in multiple angles. This also makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up approx. 180° and down approx. 45°. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.

As soon as I received the RX100 MK 5 from Amazon. Well I thought this will not work for me. Too small and the menu options were too complicated and difficult to navigate through. Its so small that I can't barely hold it for long. The on board camera buttons too small for my medium size hands.
The on and off buttons are tiny. I miss turning it on many times. Well anyway you get my drift. I thought this will not work out for me. I am not going to keep it. But then I started taking photos indoor and outdoors, and the images are quite good. Sharp with good natural color tones.
I took some time customizing the menu for my taste. I still have to say the menu is not intuitive for a new Sony user. There has got to be a least a 1000 pieces of content in that thing. Well it did not take long and I was a bit happier with it. Did I mention that the images are good, real good.
That is what keeps bringing me back to keep it.
The size is an issue. Not because its dimensions and weight but its hard to hold. Not ergonomically suited for man hands. I can easily "palm" it and hide it in my hands. I can slip it into my jacket pocket, pants, brief case. I have ordered the additional grip and more batteries. I will mentioned the negatives in a moment.
Nonsense! Also read on how to use MR, memory recall. Its a good feature for your favorite settings. You can have several MR's.
Believe it or not I will not be using the video so much. Well one reason is that it eats memory cards fast. The 4K video is limited to only 5 minutes.
The other reason is that I shoot video with the Canon G40 camcorder. So I don't need the video coming out of this pocket camera. BTW, you need a SDXC card for the 4K video. Or you can shoot in MP4 video format, with almost any SD memory card.
I really need this camera for street photography. I need it to focus quickly. Take a lot of FPS. It takes 24 FPS. It has one of the fastest shutters around at 1/32,000. That is not a typo 32000. That in itself is incredible. I want to quickly switch to B&W mode with one click. (that is the MR mode)
A workable ISO of 12,500. Ability to switch to the optical viewfinder. Taking 20MP photos is also good for post production cropping and editing.
a Zeiss-24-70mm 1.8-2.8 through out the focal length. 315 AF points for quick focus and tracking. Did I mention beautiful imagery.
1. Poor battery life. Buy at least 5 batteries.
2. I won't blame the menu system anymore, but be warned
3. Hard to hold in your hands for a longer time.
4. No separate battery charger supplied. Charges battery while inside RX 100 V-USB-chord supplied
Difficult to connect charging chord to camera. Opening is very small. (Need Patience) I don't have it.
5. High cost, should be priced at least $150 lower.
6. For the beginners, its a short-paged, owners manual.
7. Go to Youtube for camera & accessory explanations
8. Don't upgrade from RX100 IV version, small difference $200 more.
9. Camera shoulder strap?- I will use the lightweight Black Rapid sling strap for smaller DSLR's.
It screws to the tripod screw. Which then presents another issue. The sling strap which is attached to the tripod screw
is in the way of the SD card and battery compartment. So you have unscrew the sling strap to replace SD and or batteries.
10. Lastly, why can't Sony the innovator of all things technical for DSLR come up with a longer lasting battery. These Sony batteries
are $40 each. They last about 250 shots, 10-15 minutes in video use. I am sure that they will sell more batteries, but come on its
2017, lets work on a better battery folks.
This little RX100 V is the best best little pocket camera I have ever used, period. It's pro mini. While it has only a 1" sensor it still has dramatic range like a big boy (in fact no other camera this size has 12 stops), color richness and great depth of field (f/1.8). Yeah it's not in king in low light but not bad. And some issues with clipping of highlights, but shoot in RAW and fix these issues later in Photoshop or Lightroom.
I took this on a hike yesterday and I will let the photos speak for themselves.
Let's talk about the good parts. The autofocus is amazing (except I guess for the comic book lover with no lampshade who wrote a review too...) It has a great pop up EVF that no other tiny camera has (that I know of). I just took it to Ireland for a week and it performed perfectly. The RAW update from Adobe isn't out yet (not Sony's fault... yell at Adobe) so I used Sony's RAW processor. It's not great but it works until Adobe and PhaseOne gets its act together.
This is a pro camera in a tiny body that really performs. Take a minute, learn the menu, set up your own custom buttons and make some killer photos and videos. Or, I guess you could try to photograph your wall in your undecorated bedroom...)
