The Sony RX100 VI is the first of all the RX100 models to include an impressive 24-200mm f2.8-4.5 lens, without compromising on portability, speed and image quality. Ideal for both stills and video, it features the world’s fastest AF acquisition and a 1.0-type stacked 20.1MP CMOS sensor, making it the perfect choice for capturing cityscapes, portraiture, sports, wildlife and everything in between.
Every aspect and component of the RX100 VI has been skilfully engineered to work in tandem to achieve unrivalled image quality. Cleverly designed optics pack incredible power in a small footprint, while optical image stabilisation maintains a steady image even with handheld shots at the telephoto end of the zoom range. And the advanced image processing engine delivers better perceived image resolution with low noise.
The new RX100 VI model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that ultimately allows the camera to acquire focus in as little as 0.03 seconds.iii This innovative AF system combines the respective advantages of 315-pointfocal-plane phase-detection AF points that cover approximately 65% of the sensor and contrast-detection AF. This high speed focusing system complements the versatile 24-200mmirange of the lens, ensuring all subjects can be captured with precise detail and clarity.
An ideal complement to the AF system, the RX100 VI offers continuous high-speed shooting at up to 24 fps with full AF/AE tracking, with an impressive buffer limit of up to 233 images. The display lag of the EVF has been substantially reduced compared to prior models, allowing shooters to capture the decisive moment with ultimate confidence. Also, continuously shot images can now be played back in group on display instead of individually making it more convenient to review.
The pocket-friendly RX100 VI is packed with a variety of video capabilities that will satisfy even the most demanding video enthusiasts. With Fast Hybrid AF, the focal-plane phase-detection AF points ensures accurate focusing and tracking performance, even for the severe focusing requirements of 4K movie shooting. AF drive speed and AF tracking sensitivity can also be adjusted via the menu system, giving shooters plenty of flexibility based on their focusing preferences.
The new RX100 VI is equipped with a high-contrast 2.35 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder with ZEISS T* Coating, ensuring true-to-life image preview and playback functionality. The EVF itself retracts in and out of the camera body based on user preference, and can be activated instantly by a single One-push Access button.
A first for Sony’s RX series, RX100 VI has a touch shutter that can be activated by tapping the back LCD screen, a zoom lever with customisable zoom speeds and an LCD that can be rotated 180 degrees upward or 90 degrees downward for a variety of shooting angles for the creator. There is also a Monitor Auto OFF function that boosts max number of still images by up to 30%, and the camera is also Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth compatible.
