Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V Overview
|I own it||I want it||I had it|
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 Mark V is the latest addition to Sony's popular lineup of 1" enthusiast compacts. The major additions to the Mark V are on-sensor phase detection AF, and a burst rate of 24 fps with full-time focusing. The AF system takes the same 25-pt contrast-detect system and adds 315 PDAF points that cover 65% of the frame. 4K video is oversampled without pixel binning and saved using the XAVC S codec.
The RX100 V continues to offer a 20.1MP 1"-type stacked CMOS sensor, 24-70mm F1.8-2.8 lens, pop-up EVF and built-in Wi-Fi w/NFC.

The Sony RX100 V builds on a camera that was already class-leading in many respects and crams 24fps burst shooting, oversampled 4K video and a 315-point autofocus system into this new pocket-sized companion. But there are no updates to its design, ergonomics or user interface that would ease direct control of its immense feature set. It's the most expensive pocket zoom camera on the market today, and there are other models that we find nicer to use in practice, but the RX100 V remains the highest-specced and most capable camera in its class.
Good for: Those wanting the latest and greatest technology to carry with them everywhere, photographers looking for a capable point-and-shoot experience, people looking to create high-quality video on-the-go.
Not so good for: Sports photographers who will want a longer zoom lens and people who frequently want to take manual control over their photography.
