Sony Cybershot RX100 Mark V - A new addition to the range that launched countless imitators
The range of cameras that took the already competitive enthusiast compact camera range up another notch has a new family member, the Sony RX100 Mark V. The same high level of imaging quality is on offer as previous models, with a superb 20.1MP 1-inch sensor responsible for the capture of images, that promise to be exceptional in all lighting conditions. At the front of the camera is a familiar high-performance 2.9x zoom lens, with a 24-70mm equivalent range and f1.8-2.8 maximum aperture - this is a superbly versatile lens that will serve you well, day in, day out.
Externally, the RX100 Mk V features the same slimline, classic design as it's predecessors, with a bright, pop-up 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder and a tilting 3 Inch LCD screen on board to help you compose your photos and videos. This flexibility allows you to accurately frame your shots, even at the most difficult angle and makes taking a pleasing selfie all the more simple.
With fast speed features that rival modern Digital SLR cameras, the RX100 Mk V can shoot at a continuous rate of up to 24 frames per second, utilising 325 phase detection AF points - which can reportedly lock onto your subject in just 0.05 seconds! These numbers all add up to the camera being able to stop even the fastest moving subject, dead in its tracks. The phase-detection autofocus can also be put into action when filming video, which is of Ultra-high 4K resolution.
