Video specs

The RX100 VII's core video specs are essentially unchanged compared to those of the Mark VI: UHD 4K capture at up to 30p, 1080 video at up to 120p or upscaled lower-res video clips at up to 1000fps.

It has all the usual Sony video goodies: focus peaking, adjustable zebra exposure warnings and a selection of response profiles, including S-Log2, S-Log3 and 'HLG.' All the camera's footage is 8-bit, though, even if you use an external recorder.

4K capture is limited to 5 minutes in the standard temperature protection mode, but will extend beyond this (for a duration that depends on the ambient temperature) if you disable this feature. Sony recommends using a tripod if you plan to do this, as the camera body risks becoming uncomfortably hot.

The Mark VII's autofocus improvements spill over into video, with an enhanced tap-to-track feature and Eye-AF. We'll be testing this soon, but it promises a comparatively straight-forward way of getting the camera to follow the action.
