Sony Cybershot RX10 IV 25x Zoom Camera [4K Video]
- 20.1 MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor
- BIONZ X™ engine for superior detail reproduction and noise reduction
- 4K movie recording with full pixel readout/no pixel binning
Top-speed AF meets super zoom range
Now, it’s easier to capture more stunning stills and movies at every opportunity. The new RX10 IV is much more than a solid, smart all-in-one compact — it packs enough groundbreaking innovations for even professionals to marvel at, from ultra-fast AF system of its kind, to legendary optics throughout its 25x zoom range, to extraordinarily precise, powerful image processing, and more.
24-600mm^ F2.4-4 large-aperture optical zoom lens
This 25x optical zoom lens features remarkable 24-600mm^ extra-wide-angle-to-ultra-telephoto range plus macro capability, AA (advanced aspherical) and ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, ZEISS® T* Coating, and large F2.4-4 aperture. These help the camera to provide high optical performance for high resolution and beautiful bokeh.
Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor for speed
315-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides for extraordinarily fast, precise autofocusing and tracking. Furthermore, the 20.1 MP (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960 fps super-slow-motion shooting^ and up to 1/32000 sec. super-high-speed anti-distortion shutter.
^Sound cannot be recorded. A Class 10 or higher SDHC/SDXC memory card is required.
High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine
Achieving higher-speed processing performance than its predecessor, the new BIONZ X image processing engine is remarkably reliable at capturing fast-moving subjects and continuous shooting of up to 24fps. Its newly developed image-processing algorithm lets you capture high-quality images with less noise all across the sensitivity range while maintaining natural details.
Wide high-density 315-AF-point coverage
The world’s most focal-plane phase-detection AF points (315) cover approx. 65% of the entire image area of the RX10 IV’s new 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.  Phase-detection AF coverage (315 points)  Contrast-detection AF coverage (25 points).
Fast Hybrid AF moves farther ahead
For its RX10 series camera debut, Fast Hybrid AF is capable of lightning-fast 0.03-sec autofocusing response. This groundbreaking AF system seamlessly integrates the superlative speed and tracking of focal-plane phase-detection AF plus the high accuracy of contrast-detection AF, and boosts the camera’s capabilities to focus, track and capture sharp, clear still images of subjects in all situations, even in the middle of fast, dynamic action.
High-density Tracking AF Technology
Tracking performance is highly reliable, as the RX10 IV is the first Cyber-shot camera with High-density Tracking AF Technology that activates AF points to cover the area around a subject with outstanding precision and stability.

Real-time Eye AF
Real-time Eye AF can capture intriguing facial expressions with highly precise eye detection that has been enhanced to automatically focus and track focus on a subject’s eye, even as the face moves or turns to a 3/4 view. This capability extends your freedom to frame a great shot.
Easy, natural Touch Pad and Touch Focus
With Touch Pad function, you can shift focus simply by sliding your finger across the LCD screen from one area to another, while you look at the viewfinder. Whether you make the shift according to finger motion distance (relative position) or the area of the frame that you touch on the screen (absolute position), shifting is smooth and easy. For Touch Focus, simply touch the LCD at the point of the image that you want to focus on.
Shooting movies with Fast Hybrid AF
When shooting movies, this advanced two-times-faster^ AF system makes focusing smoother and simpler, and enables the same wide-ranging use of phase-detection AF as when shooting still images. Drive speed / AF tracking settings can be made to express focus in creative ways. For example, by shooting at the low end of the AF speed range, you can achieve distinctive slow focus effects.

4K movie recording^ / XAVC S format
The RX10 IV can condense about 1.7 times as much data as is required for 4K output into 4K movie recordings. Full pixel readout and no pixel binning reduces moiré and jaggies. A front-end LSI lessens rolling shutter effect of fast movement. Support of the XAVC S2^ format lets you record high-quality 4K and Full HD movies with minimal compression noise at maximum 100Mbps and 50Mbps rates.
^A Class 10 or higher SDHC/SDXC memory card is required to record movies in the XAVC S format. UHS-I Speed Class 3 is required for recording at 100Mbps.
Convenient tiltable LCD and top display panel
For clearer viewing and focusing, the built-in LCD monitor’s 1440K-dot resolution surpasses that of the predecessor of the RX10 IV. Furthermore, this screen tilts up to approximately 109° upward and 41° downward, making shots even easier to monitor from various positions while recording. When you use a viewfinder in other shooting situations, a display panel on top of the camera makes it easy to check key settings at a glance without moving the camera.
One-touch remote/ One-touch sharing
One-touch remote makes your smartphone or tablet a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to your device for SNS sharing. Just install Imaging Edge Mobile app via Wi-Fi to your NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. No NFC? No problem, as new QR code compatibility can also pair the devices.
