Sony keeps getting faster and faster as it has set yet another speed record with today’s release of the Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV Digital Camera. This long-zoom model is known for its versatile 24-600mm equivalent f/2.4-4 Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens and ultra-fast 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor which combine to provide a phenomenal all-in-one imaging solution for both stills and video. This model steps things up from its predecessor by implementing an updated BIONZ X processor with front-end LSI to achieve the faster speeds which are made evident in the camera’s ability to acquire focus in just 0.03 seconds and shoot continuously at 24 fps with full AF/AE tracking. Many of the updates seen here will be familiar to those who followed the RX100 V’s announcement last year, especially the implementation of a Fast Hybrid AF System with 315 phase-detect points covering 65% of the frame. There are many other improvements to this camera, however, as it received High-density Tracking AF technology which was first seen on Sony’s interchangeable lens cameras which helps ensure accurate focusing on fast moving subjects. Other related functions have been enhanced as well, including Eye AF and the Focus Range Limiter while the introduction of a 3” 1.44m-dot tilting LCD touchscreen enables new Touch Focus and Touch Pad functions for intuitive control over the focus area. On top of this, users can enjoy 24 fps shooting at full resolution for up to 249 frames. These changes will improve the RX10 IV’s video functions as well, with up to 2x faster focusing when recording UHD 4K video. The camera also uses a full-pixel readout of the sensor for sharper, more detailed 4K video and users can enjoy Full HD recording at up to 120 fps. Some other notable additions to the video settings include S-Log3/S-Gamut3, a Gamma Display Assist, proxy recording, and more. High Frame Rate options of up to 960 fps make a return in the RX10 IV with improved quality. Operation and handling has not changed much with the dust- and moisture-resistant body making a return. It has received Bluetooth connectivity in addition to Wi-Fi for creating a constant connection between a mobile device and the camera for location information. The menu has been revamped with color coding and an enhanced “My Menu” for easier navigation of settings, including a new Movie Settings menu.
