RX100 VII: pocket-sized with 'a9 performance'

The sensor has a faster readout speed, more phase-detection AF points and the more modern contrast autofocus system, which enables numerous new capabilities, plus a faster refresh rate in the viewfinder (Sony claims no blackout) and a 90fps seven-shot mode.

Days after announcing the A7R IV 61MP full-frame mirrorless camera, Sony has unveiled yet another product to its camera catalogue with the launch of the Sony RX100 VII 20.1MP compact camera. When you see what this camera can produce, you're guaranteed to be amazed'.

But first, I want to circle back to autofocus, because honestly I think this is where the big news is for most photographers.

The Sony RX100 family is a pocket-sized camera best suited to travel and family photography, you'd have thought, but with each generation Sony is packing more and more power into this tiny compact.

The camera has the fastest focusing speed with 20 high-speed continuous shooting without a black screen by 60 AF/AE tracking detection times per second. The Sony RX100 VII Shooting Grip Kit comes with a price tag of $1300 and will be available later in 2019 and the LCJ-RXK jacket case will cost around $85 and will be available from next month. It weighs about 302 g with 357 Focal Plane Phase Detection Focus and 425 Contrast Detection Focuses.

A new feature called Single Burst Drive Mode alllows capture of seven RAW or JPEGs at up to 90fps (or 60 or 30 if you so wish) per single shutter press. The latest addition of the RX100 retains a versatile Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm equivalent f/2.8-4.5 lens; eight aspherical lens elements equipping users with the ability to capture almost any subject in high resolution. For more info, kindly head to the official site. It also has an optically stabilized lens that removes shakes and jitters from 4K video. This small size makes it a great option for taking on holidays, or just to carry around with you for those times when you need to grab a few shots. Along with Sony's usual Optical Steady Shot, digital stabilization is now also possible when shooting 4K videos.

On the backside, there's a 3-inch, 921.6k-dot touchscreen LCD that's tiltable 180-degrees up and 90-degrees down. Out of the box, you're getting Sony's real-time tracking and real-time eye autofocus systems (which were superb on the A6400), as well as an external 3.5mm microphone port which will allow you to plug in everything from a standard shotgun mic to a trusty lavalier attachment with which to capture audio.
