ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens for rich depiction

Large-diameter ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T 24-70 mm F1.8-2.8 lens allows wide-angle shooting out to 24 mm. Maximum aperture of F2.8 brightness at the telephoto end enables shooting images without camera shake and subject motion blur and capturing photos (such as portraits) with beautiful background bokeh. ZEISS T Coating reduces ghost and flare.

Exmor RS CMOS sensor for speed

The newly developed 20.1 effective MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960 fps super slow motion shooting and super high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter up to 1/32000 sec. that are too fast for human eyes to perceive. Moreover, 315-point focal plane phase detection AF provides for extraordinarily precise autofocusing and tracking performance.

BIONZ X for superior detail and texture

As the engine that powers the conversion of light captured by an image sensor into digital images, the BIONZ X image processing engine is as essential to the RX100 V as its lens and sensor. High-speed BIONZ X enables this camera to shoot photos and movies with truer, more natural details, richer tonal gradations and lower noise.

Dense, widespread 315-AF-point coverage

The worlds most focal-plane phase-detection AF points (315) cover approx. 65% of the entire image area of the newly developed image sensor. This makes AF coverage widespread and dense enough to quickly capture subjects, such as small or fast-moving ones that are otherwise difficult to focus on, throughout the image area.

Autofocus in just 0.05 sec.

Combining the superior speed of phase-detection AF and the outstanding accuracy of contrast-detection AF, the Fast Hybrid AF system featured for the first time in an RX100 series camera focuses in just 0.05 sec. in order to track and capture subjects precisely at the climactic moments youre aiming for.

Smooth-tracking continuous shooting up to 24 fps

The RX100 V can perform high-speed continuous shooting at higher than 20 MP resolution and up to 24 fps with AF/AE tracking. In addition, the camera reduces blackout on the electronic viewfinder and LCD screen, and this reduction makes for smoother monitoring of moving subjects and easier shooting of fleeting moments.

Silent shooting for sensitive situations

You can mute the cameras shutter sound by making the following camera settings: "Shutter type: Electronic" and "Audio signals: Off". This way, you can shoot quiet scenes and noise-sensitive subjects in silence, even during continuous shooting.

AF-A mode automatically switches focus mode

In AF-A mode, the camera automatically switches between AF-S mode (Single AF: locks focus while the shutter button is pressed halfway) and AF-C mode (Continuous AF: keeps focusing on subjects while the shutter button is pressed halfway), according to such changes as sudden subject movement and brightness as detected throughout the shooting frame.

1/32000 s Anti-Distortion Shutter

Up to 1/32000 s Anti-Distortion Shutter works to minimize image distortion caused by the rolling shutter phenomenon. The extraordinarily fast shutter speed also allows you to produce photos with background defocusing using a large aperture setting even under extremely bright conditions at a maximum of EV19.

Brilliant 4K movies

In shooting 4K (QFHD resolution: 3840 x 2160) movies with full pixel readout without pixel binning, the camera collects approx. 1.7 times as much information as is required for basic 4K movie output. This oversampling effect results in images of outstanding resolution with reduced moir and jaggies.

Introducing Fast Hybrid AF for movies to the RX100 series

Fast Hybrid AF keeps images sharp and clear during the shooting of high-resolution 4K movies , thanks to the systems focal plane phase-detection AF sensor that enables accurate focusing and tracking performance.

Photo Capture creates clear stills from movies

Photo Capture function lets you select a moment from a 4K movie in playback and save it in the form of a highly detailed still image file of over 8 megapixels. Likewise, you can create a 2-megapixel still image file from a Full HD movie that has been recorded.

Up to double-length 960 fps super slow motion

Using the mode dial to select HFR, its easy to create super slow motion movies containing split-second moments of action. Choose shooting frame rates of 960/1000 fps, 480/500 fps, or 240/250 fps (NTSC/PAL), depending on speed of a moving subject. Image quality is nearly Full HD at 240/250fps, and HD at 480/500fps in Quality Priority mode. The end trigger mode also enables you to record 4 or 6 seconds before the MOVIE button is pressed, letting you capture the decisive moment.

Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder shows what you aim for

The retractable Tru-Finder electronic viewfinders sharp resolution equivalent to 2359k dots, bright self-illumination and high contrast are excellent for previewing shots and adjusting settings accordingly. EVF eyepiece optics are treated with ZEISS T Coating to reduce unwanted reflections and ensure corner-to-corner visibility.

Control ring for advanced photography

Convenient lens-mounted control ring allows you to operate pro-style manual control such as selecting shutter speed, aperture, and more for added creative command"another feature making this camera an ideal choice for serious photographers.

180 tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

High-resolution 3.0-type screen with tilt capability is perfect for taking selfies and framing of otherwise impossible overhead or low-angle shots. You can use it in high/low shooting positions for greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.

Custom button creative convenience

The custom (C) button allows you to program one of over 40 possible functions to best adapt the camera's capabilities to your shooting style. By assigning a frequently used function or a preferred setting to this button, you can call it up promptly. You'll gain handy fingertip access to your selection"for faster, more intuitive camera operation.

Shoot almost anywhere with wide ISO sensitivity

Sensitivity extends right up to ISO 12800, for crisper images in extremely low light. Let Auto ISO mode determine the most appropriate setting automatically, or manually expand sensitivity as low as ISO 80. The camera also allows you to set up lower limit shutter speed at time of Auto ISO setting.

Dual Rec still shooting during movie recording

Shoot still images of 17 MP while recording a movie. The camera enables you to capture impressive high-quality stills even in movie-shooting. Auto Dual Rec release function lets the camera automatically take photos during movie recording. Select frequency of Auto Dual Rec release from high/standard/low settings.

Bright Monitoring

This function that boosts image brightness, for example, can be assigned to a customizable button for easy access when shooting a starry sky or other dark scene.

MF Assist and Peaking functions for focus refinement

These features help you fine-tune the focus as you desire. Manual Focus (MF) Assist magnifies the area you are focusing on to enable more precise adjustment, while Peaking highlights the sharpest or most in-focus area with your choice of colour to help determine whether further focusing adjustment is required.

Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

Simply press the shutter button halfway to activate Lock-on AF. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size, improve tracking performance, and take full advantage of every photo opportunity.

Eye AF in AF-C mode

Eye AF is now available in AF-C mode in this camera. This means it automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subjects eye as the face moves, extending your freedom to frame a shot.

Choose pro-quality XAVC S or AVCHD movie format

Especially for serious videographers, XAVC S format provides low compression for high-quality movie expression and minimal noise even in scenes full of movement. You also have AVCHD format for easy editing and sharing. This camera uses 4K codec supporting 4K movie recording at up to 100 Mbps and additionally enables Full HD image recording.

Diverse movie functions supporting pro-style usage

Various available movie functions include Picture Profile (that determines the character of movies by changing basic parameters like chromogenic effects and gradation adjustment), S-Log2 gamma (that extends the dynamic range of recording to reduce occurrence of blown-out highlights and black crush), TC/UB, Rec Control, Dual Video Recording, etc.

File Name Setting

The camera lets you change the first three characters of any file name from "DSC" (by default) to three characters of your choice. This simplifies file management and is especially valuable when working with multiple cameras for various assignments.

One-touch remote/One-touch sharing

With one-touch remote, a smartphone or tablet functions as a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to the device. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile app via Wi-Fi to an NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. QR code compatibility allows connection with non-NFC smartphones.
