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.

I am handicapped and I needed a camera that was reliable and took beautiful pictures, Lost my leg you can probably guess where so I needed something small and easy to handle but Sony does not stand behind their products they want you to spend $600 to fix an issue that has plagued mini camera owners. The display says turn off Camera+ and turn the camera back on because the lens will not retract our expand properly. Try to get somebody to help me but they were very rude and wanted me to spend even more money so instead of tossing another thousand dollars out the window I smashed $1000 on the ground. Why did I do this because they made me very mad and I now have $1000 piece of crap that's not worth $.50. If this is how I'm treated I will never purchase a Sony product again and I will put reviews of this incident everywhere that I possibly can because they do not care about the customer.
The long and short of it is that the photos it can take are good, wish there was a hot shoe for flash, but the video portion has a focus problem locking on the background and not changing. So for 1000 dollars if your getting this for photos, I would give it 3.5 stars because of its cost and lackluster flash, for video I give the camera a 2.5 stars for the mikes picking up a lot of internal noise and the focus issues.
So I have finally calmed down from my auto focus hysteria. To give this camera a more fair review at this point I do find that it can take some nice photos. The video quality is superior to the ax53, at least in low light. That is due to the larger sensor in the rx100 v. Lets talk some pros and cons
1. better than the sony ax53 in terms of quality (sensor) and adjustment options
3. its photos are almost as good as the nikon d3300 with a 35mm prime lens attached.
4. Taking photos the focus can be blazing fast, sometimes
1. Not that compact, its not a ax53, but it is a fatty and putting it in your pocket is asking to bend the blades covering the lens
2. Battery life is okay, not great
3. The focus and I will get back to this
4. Audio issues
5. I am not a fan of the built in flash and think it needs to be replaced with a hot shoe
So the focus on this camera seems to be a hit or miss. Sometimes this camera will just stay locked on a background and not move at all. It also has an odd focus pulse you will see in videos sometimes where the focus seems to be constantly recatching the subject and it is jarring to see. The focus is simply hit or miss the focus pulsating sucks for video.
The audio issues are this. No audio jack, no hot shoe. You may say that this is unfair considering the real estate on the camera has already been taxed to the gills, but i argue that they should replace the built in flash with a hot shoe and put the audio port on the side, but then people could complain that there 1000 dollar compact has no flash so its not compact anymore.
That would be okay too, but there are significant audio issues as well. There is a way around this though. So if you put your ear to the camera and listen, you will hear the humming and clunking sounds the camera is making while running. When you go to take video, if you are holding the camera with your fingers anywhere near the audio recorders (the 2 tiny holes next to the flash) the camera will pick up its own internal sounds quite loudly. Which means you have to hold the camera without being near those ports. And also dont have silence occur, then the camera will also pick up on the sound in the camera.
All in all is this camera worth it? Well it is 1000 dollars, for that money i can get a nikon d300, a prime lens and a sb-600 bounce flash and take better photos for 300 dollars less. In my opinion this cmaera would be great at the 700-800 dollar price point, but 1000 dollars and its flaws makes it hard to justify. I will attach photos i have taken here shortly. As always, it depends on your needs. In my case i plan to keep the camera because for having a simple point and shoot near the quality of the nikon with prime lens, while shooting in auto mode is nice. I am working on the focus pulse while doing video.
update march 30th 2017
I decided to give this camera one more chance and bought it again since i tried the ax53 and the issue with the ax53 is the small sensor and lack of control on the adjustments and being unable to have presets. So I told myself, maybe the rx100 v i got was a lemon.
Alas, the same issue of this camera wanting to hang on the background focus despite how much space an object takes up in frame. For whatever reason the focus is killing this camera for me. Another reviewer also mentioned this issue as well so it does not seem to be a user error. If i happened to have gotten a second lemon, that is unfortunate because i have to give up on the rx100 line as a result.
IF SONY IS WATCHING, take the sensor and adjustment options and ability of presets in the rx100 v and put them in the next generation ax53 and I will buy 2 of them.
This review needs to be here. I may have gotten a lemon, but the auto focus on this thing is SLOW. I got this for that blazing fast focus for video and such, and I watched youtube videos showing how quickly this can focus. I was excited to try it out only to find that the auto focus basically may never catch the target or change focus from what you had prior.
I went into my room with the lights on, four cffl bulbs un covered and overhead. I pointed the camera at the wall about 10 feet away, and then put my hand in the shot, I was lucky if it focused within 10 seconds, certaintly not half a second. I tried this with varying distances, and settings but the focus was not that super quick speed they promised, not at all. To be fair, it was not always slow, sometimes the auto focus was quick, but most of the time it was not.
But the auto focus was not the only disapointment with this camera. It seems that many of the features and settings are locked up and figuring out how to unlock them is a real poor use of your time when hunting thru the menu to find the ways to disable certain settings in order to access said features. And finally, because the camera would randomly just shut the camera off, even though I was not shooting any 4k or anything really. It seems randomly turning off is a feature now?
I know this review is salty, but for 1070 dollars after taxes, the advertised auto focus needs to be at least somewhat near its advertised speed.
- Taking a picture, it understands the depth of where your main point (or person) is, which makes taking a picture quicker than most of its competitors.
- 24 fps with AF and AE makes taking any picture enough to be a short 5.k resolution movie clip.
- Videos come out as Ultra HD ( 5028 X 2929 pixel)
- Phase detection is a great asset as its autofocus makes sure that the target on screen doesn’t get missed out when taking 4k videos.
- The screen becomes very effective with its 180-degree flip and its 45-degree downward tilt option.
- Almost identical to its last two or three versions in size and built.
- Noise reduction and sharpening are still best in the market.
- I was able to immediately playback 24 fps round without waiting for time to load (kickass processor). There will be no waiting time when you want to view your photos.
- Can run off USB power if your battery is low (good for those who want to use this as a time-lapse).
- There are so many options regarding different forms of autofocus as the sensors are programmed to automatically target those about to be shot. The whole point of this camera is for it to do all the work and for you to just snap the photo.
- Flash and Popup viewfinder are always a benefit to have.
- You will be able to fit this in your pocket.
- One of the smallest devices out there regarding shooting in 4k.
- There is no loading phase when turning it on or off. The moment you turn it on its ready to go.
- Its mobile app allows you to use your phone as a remote control as well as transfer your photos and videos freely to your smartphone (The time of transfer depends on a number of images and how long your videos are, especially in 4k).
- The Face Detection option is able to adjust focus, distinguish between children and adults, and overall one of many options this camera has regarding auto focusing.
- HDMI Outlet
- Overall great advance options for professionals.
Cons and Oks:__________
- No Touchscreen
- Lock on auto focus is not 100% accurate.
- Lack of touchscreen makes autofocus such a pain in the ass because you need to start pressing more buttons to find the autofocus program you want, causing your camera to shake.
- Lack of customization of the buttons and dials, what you buy, basically, you can’t change.
- Compare to its competitors (Canon and Panasonic) the battery life is poor for those who want to use this in your professional work. I took 1600 raw / jpegs and a couple of 4k 60 sec videos and I needed to replace it.
- Want to save battery life, you need to physically remove the battery from the camera, (it will drain even when it’s off).
- No grip, very smooth and slippery like the iPhone 7. You always feel like you’re about to drop it.
- The LCD panel is the same as the first RX100 version.
- No control ring as, like many others, there is a click and unclick when switching lenses.
- Lack of customization you most likely always have to dig into the menu to find what you need.
- When the buffer is clearing on your card you can’t go back and review your picture.
- Still, the RX100 doesn’t have an in-camera raw processing before you want to transfer them over.
- Five minutes on 4k will lead to the camera to overheat or gets close to it.
- Lens reach is not that great, enough to put it up on this list.
- Comes with a cable and wall adapter but no external charger. Just makes it more difficult in finding a place to charge the camera.
- Some, not all, autofocus programs are almost identical to one another.
- Getting a case for this will not fit in my pocket, sucks knowing you have to put a $1000 in your pocket without protection.
- Only shoot videos you’ll probably get around 20 minutes of battery life (maybe 30 if their short videos).
- 4k is limited to 5 minutes.
- No microphone jack.
- No interchangeable lens, you stick what you get.
This is not going to be your everyday camera. It’s going to be a birthday, wedding, family moment camera. The RX100 is one of the smallest cameras to produce 4k video and that’s something even its competitors can’t do. It’s obvious, with the price, you're getting top of the line quality but the price also needs to take into account the experience of using it.
The design is relatively the same size in dimension from its predecessors and the big red marks on this is the low battery life and no touchscreen. You will need to buy extra batteries if you want film clips and take pictures in 4k as the battery will die quickly. A touchscreen, from my experience, makes autofocuing so much easier as all you need to do is touch where you want it to be. The Autofocusing programs on this device have a setting for everyone, it will indeed take some time to get used to the button layout.
Overall, from my testing, I’m giving it 4 out of 5 stars. You’re getting one of the best in image quality and 4k filming that you can fit in your pocket but this is definitely not for everyone. For me cameras like the Canon’s G7 X Mark 2 (And some Panasonic cameras) have touchscreens and have great battery life. The lens is not great for those in sports or looking for longer distant shots. Yes, nothing on the market right now can shoot 24fps nor 4k but you got to take the good and the bad. Verdict: special events will work perfectly but other than that, bring extra batteries.
Hopefully, I was helpful to you all
