I could describe this small compact camera

Sony DSC-RX100M5

with many glorious adjectives, but Sony already does it well enough!

So I'll just talk about his small size, which will allow you to keep easily, all the time with you, your DSC-RX100 Mark V right on hand.

You will be absolutely convinced by its high speed starting and ready status acquisition, by its high speed focus, wich will allow you to be in a well-situated position to shoot a facetious little child, this famous sport scene long so awaited or such fast and fleeing animal so patiently observed!


A perfect and fast focus, with its 315-AF-point! Yes, 315 physical points spread over 65% of the surface of the sensor, that means a focus on a good part of the image!

Its very sophisticated design allows this small size, this fast focus, this large 3 "LCD screen and an electronic viewfinder OLED XGA Tru-Finder ™ with 2 359 000 dots (equiv.), this Built-in flash, and many other beautiful surprises (like 4K video, excellent image stabilization, super slow motion ...)!

With such a small device, in size, these qualities are simply incredible!

Faster, more precise AF

The improved autofocus is the result of a cutting-edge AF system that combines super-fast 0.05-second (CIPA standard, internal measurement, at f=8.8 (wide-end), EV4.7, Program Auto, AF area: Wide, Focus Mode: AF-A.) AF speed and the wide, dense AF coverage employing 315 phase-detection AF points.

La mise au point améliorée est le fruit d'un système révolutionnaire qui associe une vitesse de mise au point élevée de 0,05s et une couverture large et dense à 315 points de détection de phase.

Autofocus achieved in just 0.05 seconds

The Fast Hybrid AF system, combining high-speed phase-detection AF with extremely accurate contrast
-detection AF, allows the camera to lock onto and capture moving subjects in merely 0.05 seconds.


Wide 315-AF-point coverage keeps action in focus

315 densely arrayed phase-detection AF points offer the world’s widest1 coverage (65% of new
image sensor’s image area) for consistent AF and tracking, even of small, fast-moving subjects.


Continuous shooting 24fps

Shoot continuously at up to 24fps (With "Continuous shooting mode: Hi".) with AF/AE tracking precision

Smoother tracking captures full glory with reduced blackout

Capture 20.1 MP high-resolution images at up to 24fps high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking for up to 150 shots (With "Continuous shooting mode: Hi" and "Image quality: Fine".).

Reduced blackout makes it easier to track moving subjects on EVF/LCD screen.

The more quiet, the more candid

Switch to electronic shutter and deactivate sound8 to get close to and shoot pets
and other subjects silently, even using continuous shooting mode.



Advanced image processing system

Behind advanced AF and continuous shooting

Exmor RS® CMOS sensor, BIONZ X and front-end LSI

Sony_DSC-RX100M5_n The newly developed 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor RS® CMOS image sensor featuring focal plane phase-detection AF sensor, the high-speed BIONZ X™ image processing engine and upgraded front-end LSI that supports image processing are efficiently controlled. Together, they achieve 0.05-sec.3 AF response and high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking at up to approx. 24 fps.

Outstanding image quality and continuous shooting

You needn’t compromise image quality for shooting speed. The RX100 V can capture high-resolution images of over 20 MP as quickly as 24 fps, thanks to enhanced image processing capacity and response.



Extends support of 4K high resolution

Focus sharpens with Fast Hybrid AF

Fast Hybrid AF with wide autofocus coverage supports focusing and tracking accuracy that is outstanding enough to surpass the rigorous standards required for 4K movie shooting (A Class 10 or higher SDHC/SDXC memory card is required to record movies in the XAVC S format. UHS-I (U3) is also required for recording at 100Mbps.)

Going beyond basic 4K requirements

4K movie recording featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning condenses about 1.7 times as much data as is required for 4K movies so 4K movie output looks unbeatably brilliant.



Super slow motion

Double recording duration to capture more action, in comparison to DSC-RX100M4 (available for approx. 7 seconds at 240 fps in Shoot Time Priority mode.).

Extended super slow motion at up to 960 fps (In NTSC mode. 1,000 fps in PAL mode. NTSC/PAL are switchable on the menu.)

The RX100 V can record movies in super slow motion at up to 960 fps (40x normal frame rate) for twice10 as long as its predecessor, so you can capture more of the details that express action most memorably.


More versatile functions

The RX100 V inherits the brilliant retractable OLED electronic viewfinder with anti-reflective ZEISS® T* Coating, multi-function control ring/custom buttons and 180-degree tiltable LCD screen that distinguish its predecessor.


XGA OLED Tru-Finder™

Brilliant retractable EVF with approx. 2359k-dot (equiv.) OLED provides unrivalled resolution, contrast and tone.

Control ring

Select shutter speed, aperture and more for added creative control — another RX100 V feature to support enthusiasts.

ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar® T* lens
