Sony RX10 IV Compact High ZoomNow, 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 this ultra-fast AF system of its kind, to legendary optics throughout its 25x zoom range, to extraordinarily precise, powerful image processing, and more.
This 25x optical zoom lens features remarkable 24-600 mm15 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.
315-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides for extraordinarily fast, precise autofocusing and tracking. Furthermore, the 20.1MP (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960fps16 super slow motion shooting and up to 1/32000 s super high speed Anti-Distortion shutter.
Achieving processing performance beyond its predecessor, the new BIONZ X image processing engine is remarkably reliable at capturing fast-moving subjects and continuous shooting of up to 24fps18. Its newly developed image processing algorithm lets you capture high-quality images with less noise all across the sensitivity range while maintaining natural details.
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. For its RX10 series camera debut, Fast Hybrid AF is capable of lightning-fast .03 s 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. 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.
With Touch Pad function, you can shift focus simply by sliding your finger across the LCD screen from one area to another, while looking at the viewfinder. Whether you make the shift according to finger motion distance (relative position) or the area of the frame 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 you want to focus on.
At performances, when close to wildlife, and in other noise-sensitive situations, you can shoot in silence, even during continuous shooting, by muting the camera's shutter sound with a couple of simple settings (Shutter type: Electronic and Audio signals: Off).
Fast data readout from the Exmor RS image sensor noticeably reduces distortion in images of fast-moving subjects such as the kicking of a ball. The Anti-Distortion electronic shutter achieves shutter speeds as fast as 1/32000s.
When shooting movies, this advanced AF system is twice as fast, making focusing smoother and simpler, and enabling 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.
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 the rolling shutter effect of fast movement. With the XAVCS format, you can record high-quality 4K and Full HD movies with minimal compression noise at maximum 100Mbps and 50Mbps rates.
Optical image stabilization technology developed by Sony is valuable for handheld still and movie shooting, especially in low light or at the ultra-telephoto end of the zoom range up to 600mm. This system is effectively equivalent to a 4.5 stop faster shutter speed, and prevents camera blur to ensure visibly smoother, more stable results.
Dust resistant, moisture resistant sealant and construction of operating parts allow the camera to withstand rigorous shooting of outdoor nature, sports, and wildlife in rugged environments under rainy, dusty, humid, and other difficult conditions.
Select a definitive moment from a 4K movie recording, and save it in a file as a highly detailed 8-megapixel still image. Create a 2-megapixel still image file from Full HD footage.
Remote control the camera, transfer images, imbed geotagging into image information via Bluetooth with the Sony RX10 IV.
