Sony expands its Cyber-shot RX10 series

Sony has announced an addition to its acclaimed Cyber-shot RX10 series, the RX10 IV (model DSC-RX10M4). Building on the success of last year’s RX10 III, this new camera features the world’s fastest AF acquisition time of 0.03 seconds and up to 24 fps continuous shooting with full AF/AE tracking, 315 phase-detection AF points that rivals those the fastest professional interchangeable lens cameras and an exceptionally versatile 24-600mm F2.4-F4 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens, the new RX10 IV model delivers an unmatched combination of mobility and speed for imaging enthusiasts and professionals looking for the ultimate “all-in-one” solution.


The impressive RX10 IV camera is equipped with a latest 1.0-type 20.1 MP Exmor RS CMOS stacked image sensor with DRAM chip along with a powerful BIONZ X image processor and front-end LSI.


For the first time in a Cyber-shot camera, the RX10 IV model employs High-density Tracking AF technology. This advanced technology concentrates AF points around a subject to improve tracking and focus accuracy.


Other AF improvements in the new RX10 IV camera include an enhanced version of the popular Eye AF, Touch Focus and Focus Range Limiter. AF-ON setting is also assignable, as well as multiple AF modes including AF-S, AF-C and AF-A, which can be easily adjusted based on user preferences and shooting situations.


The RX10 IV offers continuous high-speed shooting at up to 24 fps3 with full AF/AE tracking, with buffer limit of up to 249 images. Also for convenience during image playback, continuously shot images can be displayed in groups instead of individual shots.


The RX10 IV also has a high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32,000 second) that reduces the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects, and can shoot completely silently in all modes, including continuous high-speed shooting, when electronic shutter is engaged.


The 24-600mm4 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens on the Cyber-shot RX10 IV camera features a large maximum aperture of F2.4-F4.0, all the way up to ultra-telephoto. The lens also has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization that helps to reduce camera shake and image blur. When the feature is activated, it is equivalent to an approximate 4.5 steps shutter speed improvement.


With a minimum focussing distance of 72 cm (2.36 ft) and 0.49x maximum magnification at a fully extended 600mm, the lens is capable of producing amazingly detailed tele-macro images. Triple lens rings for aperture, zoom and focus are also available. The RX10 IV is also dust- and moisture-resistant and Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth compatible.


The newly-launched RX10 IV will be available in all Alpha flagship stores and major electronic stores across India.
