As we have told you earlier the sensor inside the Sony RX100V features 315 Phase AF points to quickly lock down AF on subjects despite of lighting condition.

The most important part of the new Sony RX100 V camera is the introduction of LSI circuit inside the camera that increase the frame rate of the camera upto 24frames per second. And not only that with the help of large buffer we have 148 JPEG frames in a single burst. The same tech also help to capture Full HD video @ 120frames per second and HFR Mode for Full HD Video up to 960 fps.

World fastest AF in a compact camera – The 60% of the display screen of the camera is covered by the the 315 Phase AF points. The RX100 V is able to lock onto subjects quickly, in just 0.05 seconds, and it can use AF tracking when shooting at 24 fps. Sony RX100V world most fastest compact camera till date.

Shutter: Sony RX100V uses Hybrid  shutter, with the help of Hybrid shutter the shutter range of Sony RX100V goes from 30 sec to 1/32000 sec whereas the Canon shutter range remains limited to 1/2000 sec.

Video Mode:  If We talk about the video mode the Sony RX100 V will win the fight without an issue. The Sony RX100V camera can capture 4K video mode whereas the Canon G7X Mark II remains limited to Full HD video mode only. Sony RX100V can also use Hybrid AF system while shooting video.

On the rear side of the Canon G7X Mark II camera we have a touch screen display that allow users to touch and focus your subjects, whereas the Sony RX100M V doesn’t have touch screen display.

The Cost: The Big Cost of the camera is also very important. The Canon G7X Mark II available in $699 only and the Sony RX100V is available on $999. So you have to pay $300 extra is you want Sony RX100V camera

Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II High ISO Test

high-iso-test-sony-rx100-v

Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – High ISo test between Sony RX100 V vs Cann G7X Mark II camera at ISO400

If you want to really see the difference between these two camera look at the test images captures at ISO 400 very carefully. The Sony RX100 V camera showing excellent details even when viewed at 100% whereas the Canon G7X Camera on the right side fails to collect the amount of details / maybe due to the strong noise reduction filter inside it.

However the bottom line at base ISO range Sony is producing bit more details compared to Canon G7X Mark II.

high-iso-test-sony-rx100-v

Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – ISO 1600

Now after that in each test you can see the result, Sony RX100V capturing more details and Canon G7X Mark II images look bit flat.

high-iso-test-sony-rx100-5

Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – ISO 3200

Both camera giving flat details at ISO 3200 however there is no sign of color noise which is really a big advantage for a compact cameras. However we are not able to see any noticable change between the image quality of both the camera at ISO 1600 and ISO 3200.

sony-rx-5-12800

Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – ISO 12800

Before we begin I must say that both the camera producing unusable image at ISO 12800, but at the same time we can say the color noise of Sony RX100V is more controlled than Canon G7X Mark II.

Verdict

Sony done a lot of homework to improve the overall specification the camera, one of the eye-catching specification is RX100 V is able to do AF even at 24frames per second and can save 120frames in a single burst. The other biggest advantage is 4K video mode (supported by Hybrid AF) as well as HFR mode that allow you to capture Full HD Video up to 960 fps. Whereas the competitor Canon  G7X Mark II remains limited to Full HD videos at 60fps only.

The new sensor of the Sony RX100 V camera giving us more details at base ISO range compared to Canon G7X Mark II however the ISO test sample images captured at ISO 3200 and ISO 1600 look bit similar.

I will prefer Sony RX100 V camera over Canon G7X Mark II. Since the RX100 V features ultra advance core specification that includes, better sensor, Hybrid AF, global Shutter, 4K video as well as HFR video, a far better core specification compared to G7X Mk II.

sony-rx100-v-image-image2

The sensor of both the camera features same resolution. And the ISO range of both the camera is almost same. But the biggest difference is fabrication of Phase AF points inside the sensor of Sony RX100 V camera. The sensor of the camera carries 315 AF points that helps to lock down AF in no time.

Sony RX100 V AF screen

Sony added new integrated DRAM chip on the camera that improves speed of processing, it help buffer to increase its speed and limit. Hence with the Sony RX100V you can capture 24frames a second @ 20 Megapixels.

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.

Verdict:

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.

New Compact RX100 V Model Boasts World’s Fastest AF Speed1, World’s Most AF Points and World’s Fastest Continuous Shooting1 for a Compact Camera1

NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2016 – Sony – a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer – has today announced a new flagship model for their popular Cyber-shot RX100 series of compact cameras, the RX100 V (model DSC-RX100M5).

The exciting new camera brings a new level of AF performance and speed to today’s compact camera market. It is equipped with a Fast Hybrid AF system with the world’s fastest AF acquisition1 at 0.05 seconds2 and world’s highest number of AF points on sensor1 with 315 points covering approximately 65% of the frame. The camera can also shoot continuously at speeds of up to 24 fps3 – the world’s fastest for a compact camera1 – at full 20.1 MP (approx. effective) resolution with AF/AE tracking for up to 150 continuous shots4.

The RX100 V is equipped with a newly developed 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor with a DRAM chip, a ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70 mm5 F1.8 – 2.8 large aperture lens and an enhanced image processing system with a new front-end LSI chip that maximizes processing speed, expands the memory buffer and optimizes image quality, in particular at high ISO settings. The camera also features 4K video recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning6, super slow motion recording at up to 960 fps7 with extended recording time and more.

“Featuring a level of power and performance that has never before been achieved in a compact, the new RX100 V redefines what it means to be a ‘pocket camera’,” said Neal Manowitz, Vice President of Digital Imaging at Sony Electronics. “This camera is yet another example of Sony innovating to a level far beyond what exists in the conventional marketplace.”

Fast Focusing, Fast Shooting

A first for Sony’s RX100 series of cameras, the new RX100 V model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines the respective advantages of focal-plane phase detection AF and contrast detection AF and ultimately enables the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.05 seconds2. This high speed focusing is a perfect complement to the 315 dedicated AF points that cover 65% of the sensor, and ensures that shooters will be able to capture their intended subject with high speed and accuracy, even if it’s moving rapidly in unpredictable directions.

Additionally, processing speed has been greatly enhanced through the addition of a front-end LSI that perfectly supports the camera’s BIONZ X® image processing engine. These two components combined with the powerful AF system allow the camera to shoot continuously at speeds of up to 24 fps 3 at full 20.1 MP (approx. effective) resolution for up to 150 shots4 with AF/AE tracking. Viewfinder blackout between shots has also been minimized in this high-speed shooting mode, which greatly improves photographers’ ability to follow fast action and capture the decisive moment. Silent shooting is also available in these high-speed modes as well8.

Other advancements to AF performance on the new RX100 V include the addition of AF-A mode, which allows the camera to automatically switch between continuous and single-shot AF modes. Users can also manually select if they’d like the continuous AF and phase detection AF areas to be displayed live on screen while they are framing a shot.

The RX100 V also has a high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum speed of 1/32000 second) that minimizes the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects. This fast shutter speed also allows the camera to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture at brightness levels up to EV199. Shooting at wide aperture with the fast shutter speed allows photographers and videographers to capture beautiful content with sharply focused subjects and defocused backgrounds under some of the most difficult, bright lighting conditions.

New on the RX100 V, users can freely select the initial magnification ratio when shooting in a mode with Focus Magnifier, and can select between “focus point” and “center of display” for the location of Focus Magnifier.

Professional Movie Functionality

The pocket-friendly RX100 V is packed with a variety of video capabilities that will satisfy even the most demanding video enthusiasts.

With Fast Hybrid AF, the focal plane phase detection AF sensor ensures accurate focusing and tracking performance, even for the severe focusing requirements of 4K movie shooting. AF drive speed and AF tracking sensitivity can also be adjusted via the menu system, giving shooters plenty of flexibility based on their focusing preferences.

In 4K mode 6, the new RX100 V utilizes full pixel readout without pixel binning to ensure that all the finer details of 4K video are captured with minimal moire and ‘jaggies’. These high-quality results are achieved through use of the XAVC S codec, which records video at a high data rate of up to 100 Mbps during 4K recording and 50 Mbps during full HD shooting10.

Additional professional caliber video features include Picture Profile, S-Log2/S-Gamut, 120p HD Full HD mode and more. Users also have the ability to manually select a frame from a recorded movie and save it as a still image file of approximately 8 MP during 4K shooting or 2 MP during HD shooting.

The RX100 V is able to record super-slow motion video7 at up to 40x slower than the standard rate, and can do this for about twice as long as the RX100 IV model. This extended time allowing users to capture a series of high-speed, fleeting moments of action with incredible detail, resolution and clarity.

Prior to shooting, users will have the ability to choose among 960fps, 480fps and 240 fps frame rates and among 60p, 30p and 24p playback formats to optimize the recording to fit the speed of the moving subject, with the option to use the movie record button as a ‘start trigger’ to begin recording once button is pressed or ‘end trigger’ to record footage up until the button is pressed.

Pocket-Friendly Design, Premium Performance

The new RX100 V maintains the convenient pocket-sized design of the remainder of the RX100 family and is equipped with a high-contrast 2.35 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™, ensuring true-to-life image preview and playback functionality. The EVF conveniently retracts in and out of the camera body based on user preference, and features optics with ZEISS® T* Coating.

The new camera is also Wi-Fi® and NFC™ compatible and can access Sony’s growing range of PlayMemories Camera Applications. Learn more at www.sony.net/pmca.

Another convenient addition is the ability for users to freely set the leading three characters of saved file names for easier sorting and organization.

There will also be a new underwater housing (model MPK-URX100A) that will be available as a separate accessory for the RX100 V and all other RX100 series cameras. Designed exclusively to fit the RX100 cameras, the housing features a depth level of 40m/130ft.

Pricing and Availability

The new Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V (model DSC-RX100M5) compact camera will ship this month for about $1,000 US and $1,250 CA.

The new underwater housing (model MPK-URX100A) will ship in November for about $350 US and $450 CA.

Both products will be sold at a variety of Sony authorized dealers throughout North America.
