  • 4K in-body film recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning in excessive bit price XAVC S™(11)
  • Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF for video
  • 4K Active SteadyShot that’s 8x more practical than 4K Standard SteadyShot(16)
  • Industry commonplace 3.5mm microphone enter(17)
  • Hybrid Log-Gamma(12) (HDR) / S-Gamut3.Cine / S-Log3, S-Gamut3 / S-Log3
  • Compatibility with Movie Edit add-on from the ‘Imaging Edge™’ cell software for film stabilization and modifying
  • Vertical-position knowledge recording for films(18)
  • Interval Shooting(19) for beautiful time-lapse movies
  • Super Slow Motion(20) recording at as much as 960fps
  • 180-degree flip display screen for ease-of use whereas vlogging

Shooting Grip Kit for Vloggers

Sony can even be introducing a Shooting Grip Kit (DSC-RX100M7G), which incorporates an RX100 VII and Shooting Grip (VCT-SGR1) that enables for straightforward recording and zooming proper at your fingertips; Bracket with Accessory Shoe; and two Rechargeable Battery Packs (NP-BX1)(21).
