Sony has announced a new addition to its Cyber-shot RX100 series of compact cameras, the RX100 VI (model DSC-RX100M6).
The RX100 VI includes a high magnification zoom lens, an impressive ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T 24-200mm F2.8 – F4.5 lens. The lens has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization that is equivalent to a 4.0-stop faster shutter speed. Its extensive zoom, impressive image quality and versatility for both still images and video make it an ideal choice for capturing daily life, cityscapes, portraiture, sports, wildlife and everything in between.
The new model is equipped with a 20.1 MP 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and an upgraded BIONZ X image processing system with a front-end LSI. Additionally, the RX100 VI features an incredibly efficient Fast Hybrid AF system with 315-point phase-detection AF points on the sensor. It can also shoot at up to 24 fps at full resolution with continuous AF/AE tracking and produces beautiful 4K video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning.
Additionally, a first for the RX100 series of cameras, the also includes Sony’s advanced High-density Tracking AF technology, the popular Eye AF technology, and LCD touch focusing and touchpad focus point control.
It also has a high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32000 second) that reduces the “rolling shutter” effect. A mechanical shutter mode is also available as well if required by the user.
Equipped with a high-contrast 2.35 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder with ZEISS T Coating, this shooter ensures 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.
There is also a Monitor Auto OFF function that boosts maximum number of still images by up to 30%, and Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth compatibility.
The new Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI compact camera priced at PHP 69,999 will be available in Sony centres and authorized Sony dealers starting August 4, 2018.
