SONY Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 M5A Overview
Staggering performance in a 1.0-type sensor compact
Meet the RX100 V — the ultimate compact for capturing movies and stills in captivating detail. This camera inherits the RX100 series' renowned 1.0-type image sensor, and advances with blazing-fast 0.05-second2autofocus, 315 focal plane phase-detection AF points, continuous shooting up to 24 fps3 with AF/AE tracking, as well as outstanding 4K movie capabilities.
Super-fast 0.05-sec.2 autofocus speed
The improved autofocus is the result of a cutting-edge AF system that combines super-fast 0.05-second2 AF speed and wide, dense AF coverage employing 315 phase-detection AF points.
Wide 315-AF-point coverage keeps action in focus
315 densely arrayed phase-detection AF points offer wide coverage (65% of image sensor's image area) for consistent AF and tracking, even of small, fast-moving subjects.
 Point of focus  Contrast-detection AF  Phase-detection AF
Shoot continuously at up to 24fps3 with AF/AE tracking precision
Smooth subject tracking with reduced blackout
Capture 20.1 MP images, at up to 24fps3, continuously for up to 233 shots7, and with full AF/AE tracking for each. With reduced blackout it's also easier to follow moving subjects on both the LCD screen or viewfinder.
The drive behind advanced AF and continuous shooting
Exmor RS® CMOS sensor, BIONZ X and front-end LSI
The 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor featuring focal plane phase-detection AF sensor, the advanced high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine and the front-end LSI that supports image processing are efficiently controlled. Together, they achieve 0.05-sec.2 AF response, high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking at up to approx. 24fps3, higher perceived resolution and low noise levels as well as more accurate face and eye detection.
Outstanding image quality and continuous shooting
You needn't compromise image quality for shooting speed. The RX100 V can capture high-resolution images of over 20 MP as quickly as 24fps3, thanks to enhanced image processing capacity and response.
Sharper focus with Fast Hybrid AF
Make epic action last even longer
Extended super slow motion at up to 960fps11
The RX100 V can record movies for super slow motion at up to 960fps11 (40x the normal frame rate). With twice the recording time of its predecessor12 13, you can capture even more action, to express almost any activity more memorably.
Inheriting more versatile control
The RX100 V inherits the brilliant retractable OLED electronic viewfinder with anti-reflective ZEISS® T* Coating, multi-function control ring/custom buttons and 180-degree tiltable LCD screen that distinguish its predecessor12.
New Imaging Edge software suite from Sony16
Imaging Edge software suite can maximize image quality, improve production efficiency. "Remote" to remotely control shooting; "Edit" to develop RAW data into high-quality photos; and "Viewer" to view, rate and select photos.17
Capture One for Sony18
Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning editing software that provides RAW development, easy management and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.
