Sony’s Insane Pocket Camera Comes With New Features

As we known, Sony’s RX100 line has been the camera to beat if you’re looking for an impressively capable pocket-sized shooter packing a one-inch sensor. The latest iteration, the new Rx100 V, now boasts the ability to shoot full 20.1-megapixel images at an astonishing 24 frames per second.
The camera is capable of focusing in a mere 0.05-seconds using a 315-point autofocus system, the RX100 V can actually keep tracking and focusing on your subject, and maintaining the proper exposure, while you’re snapping away at full resolution 24 times every second.
Its internal buffer can keep this up for 150 images, or around 6.2 seconds, before you’ll need to give it a second or two to catch up, but it all but guarantees you’re going to capture the exact moment you’re after.
Moreover, the RX100 V’s video capabilities still top out at 4K resolutions when shooting at upwards of 30 frames per second. But as with the RX100 IV, that can be boosted to as high as 960 frames per second for capturing extreme slo-mo footage, if you’re OK with a resolution drop down to just NTSC, which is well below even hi-def. But thanks to the RX100 V’s improved buffer capacity, you can now capture slo-mo footage for twice as long as you could on its predecessor.
To add, hardware-wise the RX100 V has a 24-70-millimeter f/1.8-2.8 Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lens, a 2,359,296-dot XGA OLED viewfinder, the same as the Rx100 IV, and a 2.95-inch, 1,228,800 dot TFT LCD display that can be tilted 180-degrees for selfie snaps. And for those times when you’re trying to capture a close-up photo of a sleeping baby and require stealth, you can also set the RX100 V to only use the electronic shutter to keep camera noise to a minimum.
