Broad zoom range and superior speed performance

Inside its compact body, the RX100 VII is packed with everything it takes to deliver gorgeous images. The 24-200mm[1] zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example. is complemented by 0.02-sec.[2[ 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.


Broad zoom capability in a compact body

The high-magnification 24-200mm[1] zoom lens delivers superb image quality. Engineered to achieve maximum resolution and clarity across the entire zoom range, it brings the remarkable telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. capability to a pocket-size package, vastly expanding your options for creative expression.

  • Pocket-full of lenses: The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm[1] f/2.8-4.5 zoom lens covers a broad span of zoom ranges equivalent to two standard zoom lenses (24-70mm and 70-200mm), all in a very compact configuration.
  • High-resolution optics: The camera's lens elements include four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements. These work together to achieve superb resolution right out to the periphery of the image, and throughout the telephoto range.  
  • A new image sensor designed for speed: The newly developed, 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor and the latest BIONZ X™ image-processing engine open new dimensions in speed and image quality.
  • Fast, 20fps continuous shooting with highly accurate AF/AE tracking: The fast new image sensor offers continuous shooting at up to 20fps[3], and the camera tracks subjects with AF/AE calculations at up to 60 times per second3, even when they're moving erratically or at high speed.
  • Blackout-free Shooting to keep you on track: Blackout-free Shooting[4] lets you track your subject's movement without interruption on the camera's LCD display or viewfinder screen, with display updates performed at 60fps to minimise time lag.


New Single Burst Shooting function

The newly developed Single Burst Shooting[5] 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.


Broad AF coverage and fast AF speed

The RX100 VII features a category-leading6 total of 357 focal-plane phase-detection AF points, covering a total of 68% of the frame. These are complemented by 425 contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). -detection AF points, and AF acquisition is achieved in just 0.02 seconds,2 the world's fastest speed.[6 ]

  • Phase-detection AF coverage (357 points)
  • Contrast-detection AF coverage (425 points) 


Real-time Tracking for moving subjects

Real-time Tracking uses subject-recognition algorithms (AI)[7] 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.

  • Real-time Eye AF for both stills and movies: Sony's advanced eye-detection and tracking performance are the secret ingredients for beautiful portraits. Real-time Eye AF detects human eyes and maintains focus as the subject moves, leaving you free to compose your shot. It's even possible to focus on either the left or the right eye of your subject.
  • Real-time Eye AF for Animals: Real-time Eye AF is available for animals[8] as well as people. Great portrait shots of pets are easier than ever.


Superior image quality

High resolution and exceptional low-light shooting: The large 1.0-type image sensor has a resolution of 20.1 megapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints.s[9] with back-illuminated technology and an improved standard ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)range of 100-12800. High levels of perceived image resolutionIMAGE RESOLUTIONRefers to the information a digital image holds, measured in megapixels (MP). A digital camera with greater MP is more desirable as it enables you to collect more information necessary for delivering high-quality images fit for resizing or down-sampling. Note that an image’s MP may be misleading as it only tells you how many pixels it holds and not its actual dimensions (width and height). The pixels may be concentrated in a smaller area (high pixel density and thus higher resolution), resulting in a high-quality image, or spread out over a larger area, resulting in a low-quality pixelated image. The number of pixels in an image can be calculated by multiplying the horizontal and vertical pixel dimensions - e.g. a 3000 x 2000 pixel image contains 6 megapixels (6 million pixels). and low noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. contribute to superb image quality with realistic-looking textures.

Excellent colour and texture reproduction: 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.

Optical image stabilisation for steadier still shots: Capture high-quality images with compensation for hand-held camera shake, even in dim lighting and at telephoto range. The image-stabilisation algorithm delivers a level of stabilisation equivalent to a 4.0-stop[10] faster shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. at 200mm.[1]

Anti-distortion electronic shutter with silent shooting: The RX100 VII achieves shutter speeds of up to 1/32000 sec., while the sensor's fast readout helps suppress the rolling-shutter effect that can occur when photographing quickly moving subjects. Silent shooting[11] is also possible. 

Soft Skin Effect and Creative Style: The Soft Skin Effect reduces facial wrinkles and skin dullness, for better portraits. Creative Style and Picture Effect options let you make fine adjustments to capture distinctive images.


High-resolution 4K HDR (HLG) recording and stable AF

The camera supports internal 4K (QFHD:3840×2160) movie recording[12] [13] 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. 


Advanced features for creators and vloggers

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.

  • External mic input, for higher-quality sound: Despite its compact size, the RX100 VII includes a microphone input[14]. Highly appreciated by vloggers and professionals alike, the standard 3.5mm input enables professional audio capture for all your movies and vlogs.
  • Enhanced image stabilisation during 4K movie recording: Capture smooth 4K video even while walking with newly supported "Active" mode image stabilisation. And for even smoother, gimbal-like stabilisation[15]. simple movie editing is available in the Imaging Edge™ Movie Edit add-on app[16].
  • Vertical movie recording with metadata, for smartphone viewing: Movies shot with the camera held vertically can now be viewed in the same orientation on PCs and smartphones thanks to metadata added by the camera.[17]
  • S-Log support for enhanced creative expression: The RX100 VII supports S-Log3 and S-Log2 Picture Profiles. Whether you need high dynamic range and wide colour space images for post-production or a unique look right out of the camera, the RX100 VII has you covered.
  • Interval Shooting for time-lapse movies: The Interval Shooting18 function performs continuous shooting with a set interval of 1 to 60 seconds with AE tracking. The resulting time-lapse images can be previewed on the camera or assembled into a movie on your PC.


Easy operation sets your creativity free

  • One-push Access electronic viewfinder: 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.
  • Tiltable display monitor for convenient framing: The high-resolution, 921k-dot 3.0-type LCD monitor tilts upward by 180° and downwards by around 90°, making it easy to frame selfie shots or shoot from high and low angles.
  • Touch operation for smooth shooting: Simply tap the screen to initiate Real-time Tracking for either stills or movies. Touch Focus, Touch Pad and Touch Shutter are also available.
  • Easy data management: Still images can be rated or protected from a deletion in playback mode, with optional custom-key assignment for these functions. Continuously shot images can be displayed in the groups in which they were shot, and groups can be deleted or protected with one operation.
  • Customisation functions: Camera functions that are activated from the Fn buttons can now have separate assignments for still and movie shooting. Frequently used functions and menu items can be easily and comfortably accessed when they're assigned using the My Menu and My Dial features.

Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. are fixed at the first shot in each burst.
