Inside its compact body the RX100 VII is packed with everything it takes to deliver gorgeous images. The 24-200mm zoom lens is complemented by 0.02-sec. super fast AF, new Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF, plus enhanced image stabilisation and an external microphone jack for high-quality movie shooting.
Broad zoom capability in a compact body
The high-magnification 24-200mm zoom lens delivers superb image quality. Engineered to achieve maximum resolution and clarity across the entire zoom range, it brings remarkable telephoto capability to a pocket-size package, vastly expanding your options for creative expression.
Pocket-full of lenses
The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm F2.8-4.5 zoom lens covers a broad span of zoom ranges equivalent to two standard zoom lenses (24-70mm and 70-200mm), all in a very compact configuration.
The camera's lens elements include four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements. These work together to achieve superb resolution right out to the periphery of the image, and throughout the telephoto range.
A new image sensor designed for speed
The newly developed, 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor and the latest BIONZ X™ image-processing engine open new dimensions in speed and image quality.
Fast, 20fps continuous shooting with highly accurate AF/AE tracking
The fast new image sensor offers continuous shooting at up to 20fps, and the camera tracks subjects with AF/AE calculations at up to 60 times per second4, even when they're moving erratically or at high speed.
Blackout-free Shooting to keep you on track
Blackout-free Shooting5 lets you track your subject's movement without interruption on the camera's LCD display or viewfinder screen, with display updates performed at 60fps to minimise time lag.
New Single Burst Shooting function
The newly developed Single Burst Shooting function will capture even very fast-moving action, such as the precise instant a tennis racket hits the ball, taking seven shots in rapid succession with selectable speeds of 90fps, 60fps or 30fps. It allows you to capture decisive moments that might otherwise be very difficult, and it can be used with the self-timer. Both JPEG and RAW image formats are supported.
Broad AF coverage and fast AF speed
The RX100 VII features a category-leading* total of 357 focal-plane phase-detection AF points, covering a total of 68% of the frame. These are complemented by 425 contrast-detection AF points, and AF acquisition is achieved in just 0.02 seconds, the world's fastest speed.*
Real-time Tracking for moving subjects
Real-time Tracking uses subject-recognition algorithms (AI) that draw on colour, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth) and face/eye information to track your subjects wherever they move. Maintaining a constant, steady focus on a moving subject helps you capture every important moment of action as it happens, whether you're taking stills or movies.
Optical image stabilisation for steadier still shots
Capture high-quality images with compensation for hand-held camera shake, even in dim lighting and at telephoto range. The image-stabilisation algorithm delivers a level of stabilisation equivalent to a 4.0-stop11 faster shutter speed at 200mm.
High resolution and exceptional low-light shooting
The large 1.0-type image sensor has a resolution of 20.1 megapixels, with back-illuminated technology and an improved standard ISO range of 100-12800. High levels of perceived image resolution and low noise contribute to superb image quality with realistic-looking textures.
High-resolution 4K HDR (HLG) recording and stable AF
The camera supports internal 4K (QFHD:3840×2160) movie recording* with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. Smooth, stable AF is the result of enhanced AF algorithms, and Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF (human) are also now available for movies. With HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) capability you can enjoy HDR images simply by connecting the camera to an HDR (HLG) compatible Sony TV via a USB cable.
Advanced features for creators and vloggers
Step up your vlogging with the go-anywhere RX100 VII. New Touch Tracking for movies gives you fast, easy autofocus you can rely on, while Real-time Eye AF (human) ensures precise focus. Even when you're walking, image stabilisation "Active" mode produces smooth 4K video and, with a tilting selfie screen and external mic input, both framing and audio are stress-free.
