Sony updates its prosumer RX100 compact camera with a bunch of features normally reserved for its higher-end A-series cameras. To kick things off, the RX100 VII sports an all-new 1-inch stacked 20.1-megapixel sensor paired with a BIONZ X image processor.
The RX100 VII borrows a few features from the A9 that include an insane 20FPS image shooting with AE/AF and without viewfinder blackout. If that is not fast enough, the RX100 VII has a Single Burst shooting mode, where you are presented with seven images at the click of a shutter. You can choose between 30FPS, 60FPS, or 90FPS depending on what you are shooting–which is pretty insane for a compact camera.
On the autofocus side, you get a total of 357 phase detection AF points and 425 contrast detection AF points. You get real-time eye tracking and eye detection, along with an increased AF/AE calculation at 60 times per second. Again, this is a compact camera we are talking about.
The improvements are not limited to photos. On the video side, the RX100 VII gains a 3.5mm microphone jack, along with full pixel readout at 4K, Log and HLG for HDR workflows, support for vertical video recording, 960FPS slow motion, and improved image stabilization
The RX100 VII is priced at $1200(~Php 61.5k) for the camera only and $1300(~Php 66.6k) with the shooting grip and will be available starting next month.
