The other major addition is front-end LSI. LSI means Large scale integration of transistors. By adding front-end LSI and DRAM chip the overall performance, image & video quality of the Sony RX100 V will be greatly improved compared to its predecessor.

The Hybrid AF system of the camera will help users to do blazing fast AF while recording videos. And I hope this time the RX100 V is free from overheating and other issues as faced by Sony RX100 MIV users while recording 4K videos.

Short Battery can emerge as a big problem to Sony RX100V users since 220 Shots limit can be crossed any time while shooting a event or when you are traveling outside. So we suggest to keep extra battery pack always when you have RX100V.


Sony RX100 V camera contains a lot of improvement from inside. The Sony RX100V camera new sensor with Hybrid AF points, front-end LSI and DRAM Chip for performance improvement. We recommend you to get Sony RX100V camera over RX100IV.
