DESCRIPTION OF THE SONY RX100 VI

Sony RX100 series are the most advanced compact cameras on the market. They are often used by professionals when the use of heavy professional cameras with replaceable optical system is not possible or does not make sense.

RX100 VI is equipped with the 1'' sensor, in Exmor RS technology, with the resolution of 10.1MP. The ISO range of 125 to 12800 can be extended to ISO 80 to 25600. Thanks to the use of Bionz X processor, together with LSI chip and dedicated DRAM memory, the camera's efficiency enables taking photographs with the speed of 24f/s, or even 233 JPEG photographs in the 'Fine' quality in the buffer. The camera offers the fastest  autofocus in its class, based on 315 phase-detection points, with 65% frame coverage. The focusing time is 0.03s.

Videos will be recorded in 4K HDR, in the resolution of 3840x2160px, with the use of the Hybryd Long Gamma profile. Full HD materials will be recorded with the speed of 120f/s, and in slow motion, the camera will be able to record even 1000 frames per second.

The lens of Sony RX100 VI is equipped with the zoom with the equivalent of 24-200mm and it is based on 15 lenses (10 aspherical ones, including 2 low-dispersion ones), placed in 12 groups. The aperture range is f/2.8 - f/4.5, and the new processor will be able to reduce greater noise of photographs taken in low light. 


Sony RX100 VI is equipped with a full touch LCD screen with the resolution of 1228 thousand points. The screen can be folded by 180 degrees upwards and by 90 degrees downwards. This should certainly satisfy vloggers and selfie-lovers. The camera has a retractable electronic  viewfinder with the resolution of 2359 thousand points and the flash.
