Sony, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer – has launched another exciting model for their popular Cyber-shot RX100 series of compact cameras, the RX100 VI.
The innovative new RX100 VI camera is the first of all the RX100 models to include a high magnification zoom lens, as it packs in an impressive ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm 1 F2.8 – F4.5 lens yet doesn’t sacrifice the pocket-size portability, fast responsiveness and high image quality that has become the hallmark of Sony’s RX100 line-up. It’s extensive zoom, impressive image quality and versatility for both still images and video makes it an ideal choice for capturing daily life, cityscapes, portraiture, sports, wildlife and everything in between.
Additionally, the RX100 VI features an incredibly efficient Fast Hybrid AF system with 315-point phase-detection AF points on the sensor that can acquire focus in as little as 0.03 seconds 3, the world’s fastest 2 AF acquisition time for 1.0-type sensor cameras. It can also shoot at up to 24 fps 5 at full resolution with continuous AF/AE tracking and produces beautiful 4K 8 videos with full pixel readout and no pixel binning.
New High-Magnification 24-200mm Zoom Lens Plus Outstanding Image Quality.
A first for Sony’s RX100 series of cameras, the new ZEISS Vario-Sonnar 24-200mmi F2.8 – F4.5 lens packs the power of both 24-70mm and 7-200mm focal lengths into a singular compact design. This is achieved thanks to its unique design featuring two ED (extra-low dispersion) aspherical glass elements and eight aspherical lens elements including four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses.
The impressive new lens on the RX100 VI maintains a large aperture throughout the entire zoom range, ensuring portraits can be created with beautiful background defocus, fast-moving subjects can be captured with crisp focus and no blurring, and much more.
Lightning-Fast AF Performance and Shooting Speeds
The new RX100 VI model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that ultimately allows the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.03 seconds 3. This innovative AF system combines the respective advantages of 315-point focal-plane phase-detection AF points that cover approximately 65% of the sensor and contrast-detection AF.
The RX100 VI also has a high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32000 second) that reduces the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast-moving subjects and can shoot completely silently in all modes.
Advanced Movie Capabilities Including 4K HDR
The pocket-friendly RX100 VI is packed with a variety of video capabilities that will satisfy even the most demanding video enthusiasts.
In 4K 7 mode, the new RX100 VI utilizes full pixel readout without pixel binning to ensure that all the finer details of 4Kvii video are captured with minimal moire and ‘jaggies’.
Price & Availability
The new Sony Cyber-shot RM100 VI compact camera will be available in Malaysia from 20 July 2018 at RM 4,899.
