The Sony RX100M5 has been refreshed and is now the RX100M5A. Sony have enhanced the performance and features of the benchmark premium compact by adding an improved Bionz X processor, better autofocus features with an updated menu and user interface system.

20.1 Megapixel Exmor RS Sensor

Its 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor delivers 20.1 megapixel high resolution still images and Ultra HD 4K video recording. The sensor is teamed with Bionz X advanced image processor to deliver uncompromising speed and versatility, offering faster more precise focusing, a 24fps burst mode and super slow motion video at up to an amazing 960fps.

24-70mm Zeiss Vario-Sonnar Lens

A Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens features a 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 large aperture lens, delivering the versatility to capture landscapes, portraits, street photography and more. The lens is complemented by an intuitive control ring that is equipped to control shutter speed, aperture and more for maximum creative control and a pleasurable shooting experience.

Improved AF System

An improvement over the RX100M5, the RX100M5A has a Fast Hybrid AF system that now offers Sony's popular Eye-AF feature for faster and more accurate face tracking of your subject. The system is capable of obtaining focus in a mere 0.05 seconds and the lightning fast speed is complemented by an impressive 315 dedicated AF points, with over 65% coverage of the sensor. Extra AF features include the addition of a "Zone" focus area and the ability to set face priority and register an AF area. The camera an also detect when you change between lanscape and portrait orientation and adjust your AF point accordingly.
 

24fps Burst Mode

Harnessing the power of the Bionz image processor, the RX100V's focusing system is able to capture photos at 24fps in full resolution with AF/AE tracking, equipping you with the ability to capture even the most fleeting moments in razor sharp clarity. The buffer has been boosted and can hold a massive 233 JPEG images shot in continuous drive mode.

1/32000th Maximum Shutter Speed

An innovative anti-distortion shutter capable of a maximum shutter speed of 1/32000th seconds minimises rolling shutter and enables the camera to fully exploit the f/1.8 maximum aperture on the Zeiss lens. These two features combine to deliver the capability of capturing images with beautifully a shallow depth of field, even in bright daylight conditions.

4K Ultra-HD Video Recording

Delivering 4K at 30fps, the RX100 Mark 5 utilises full pixel readout without pixel binning to deliver maximum image quality with true-to-life colour rendition. The proven XAVC S codec delivers files at up to 100Mbps, offering creative versatility during post-production without compromising your image quality. This is combined with a variety of picture profiles including S-Log2/S-Gamut to offer professional level potential for colour grading and manipulation.

40x 960fps Slow Motion Recording

Ultra-fast motion can be transformed into silky smooth clips with thanks to its ability to record at slowdown motion by up to 40x slower than the standard rate. Choose from a range of frame rates including 960fps, 480fps, 240fps and 120fps in Full HD to transform moments too fast for the human eye to appreciate into dramatic silky smooth video clips.

Flip-Up LCD Screen

Designed to please both enthusiast and professional shooters, the RX100 V features a high resolution screen and a pop-up OLED electronic viewfinder. The 3-inch 1229k-dot LCD tilts upwards up to 180° for easy low-down compositions and picture perfect selfies, and downwards up to 45° for easy overhead shooting.

Pop-up OLED Electronic Viewfinder

Hiding in plain sight, the electronic viewfinder is recessed in the camera body. Featuring a 2.35 million dot resolution and a Zeiss T* coating, its XGA OLED construction is perfect for shooting in ultra-bright conditions.

Improved Menu and User Interface

A new and improved menu system makes adjusting camera settings significantly easier, the RX100M5A inherts the "my menu" functionality of the higher end Sony camera's that allows you to create a custom quick access menu with all of your favourite settings. Video recording can now be triggered with the shutter button, making it easier for vloggers and videographers to start filming. The camera also allows you to assign a rating up to 5 stars to identify your favourite shots when editing.

Wi-Fi + NFC Connectivity Convenience

Built-in WiFi and NFC connectivity work in conjunction with Sony’s free PlayMemories Camera App to allow your compatible smartphone or tablet to quickly connect to the camera for remote shooting and control or instant photo sharing with your friends, family and favourite social networks.

The Ultimate Premium Compact

Setting high standards for shooting speed and video quality in the premium compact range, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M5A is an ideal choice for professionals and enthusiasts who want a compact camera that, despite its size makes no compromises in performance or versatility.
