RX100 VII Compact Camera, Unrivalled AF
Inside its compact body the RX100 VII is packed with everything it takes to deliver gorgeous images. The 24-200mm zoom lens is complemented by 0.02-sec. super fast AF, new Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF, plus enhanced image stabilisation and an external microphone jack for high-quality movie shooting.
The high-magnification 24-200mm zoom lens delivers superb image quality. Engineered to achieve maximum resolution and clarity across the entire zoom range, it brings remarkable telephoto capability to a pocket-size package, vastly expanding your options for creative expression.
The newly developed Single Burst Shooting function will capture even very fast-moving action, such as the precise instant a tennis racket hits the ball, taking seven shots in rapid succession with selectable speeds of 90fps, 60fps or 30fps. It allows you to capture decisive moments that might otherwise be very difficult, and it can be used with the self-timer. Both JPEG and RAW image formats are supported.
The RX100 VII features a category-leading total of 357 focal-plane phase-detection AF points, covering a total of 68% of the frame. These are complemented by 425 contrast-detection AF points, and AF acquisition is achieved in just 0.02 seconds, the world's fastest speed.
 Phase-detection AF coverage (357 points)
 Contrast-detection AF coverage (425 points)
Real-time Tracking uses subject-recognition algorithms (AI) that draw on colour, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth) and face/eye information to track your subjects wherever they move. Maintaining a constant, steady focus on a moving subject helps you capture every important moment of action as it happens, whether you're taking stills or movies.
The large 1.0-type image sensor has a resolution of 20.1 megapixels, with back-illuminated technology and an improved standard ISO range of 100-12800. High levels of perceived image resolution and low noise contribute to superb image quality with realistic-looking textures.
The newly developed image sensor, and the camera's image-processing algorithms, achieve more realistic textures and colours. In particular, human skin tones look natural, while the vivid colours of flowers are more accurately reproduced.
The camera supports internal 4K (QFHD:3840×2160) movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. Smooth, stable AF is the result of enhanced AF algorithms, and Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF (human) are also now available for movies. With HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) capability you can enjoy HDR images simply by connecting the camera to an HDR (HLG) compatible Sony TV via a USB cable.
Step up your vlogging with the go-anywhere RX100 VII. New Touch Tracking for movies gives you fast, easy autofocus you can rely on, while Real-time Eye AF (human) ensures precise focus. Even when you're walking, image stabilisation "Active" mode produces smooth 4K video and, with a tilting selfie screen and external mic input, both framing and audio are stress-free.
The XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ has a resolution of approx. 2.35 million dots for bright, detailed and high-contrast viewing. It can be accessed quickly using the pop-up switch, and retracted just as quickly when not in use.
The high-resolution, 921k-dot 3.0-type LCD monitor tilts upwards by 180° and downwards by around 90°, making it easy to frame selfie shots or shoot from high and low angles.
