New Commonplace for AF Efficiency in a Compact Digital camera
The RX100 VII presents a world-leading(5) 357 focal-plane phase-detection AF factors and 425 contrast-detection AF factors. As well as, due to a newly optimized lens drive management, the world’s quickest(5) 0.02 sec(6) AF acquisition time is realized. A serious leap in AF/AE monitoring efficiency throughout steady taking pictures(13) means the digital camera performs AF/AE calculations as much as 60 occasions per second(2) and captures fast paced motion at 20fps(3) with AF/AE monitoring, guaranteeing that every second is shot with swift and correct focus.
As well as, the picture sensor realizes blackout-free taking pictures(4) for a very dwell view, even when steady taking pictures at 20fps(3); the identical expertise because the Alpha 9. The RX100 VII additionally debuts a brand new drive mode, Single Burst Capturing(9), for capturing the proper high-speed shot at as much as 90fps(10) in JPEG/RAW format using the anti-distortion shutter.

- 4K in-body film recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning in excessive bit price XAVC S™(11)
- Actual-time Monitoring and Actual-time Eye AF for video
- 4K Lively SteadyShot that’s 8x simpler than 4K Commonplace SteadyShot(16)
- Trade normal 3.5mm microphone enter(17)
- Hybrid Log-Gamma(12) (HDR) / S-Gamut3.Cine / S-Log3, S-Gamut3 / S-Log3
- Compatibility with Film Edit add-on from the ‘Imaging Edge™’ cellular utility for film stabilization and enhancing
- Vertical-position information recording for motion pictures(18)
- Interval Capturing(19) for beautiful time-lapse movies
- Tremendous Sluggish Movement(20) recording at as much as 960fps
- 180-degree flip display screen for ease-of use whereas vlogging
Capturing Grip Equipment for Vloggers
Sony may also be introducing a Capturing Grip Equipment (DSC-RX100M7G), which incorporates an RX100 VII and Capturing Grip (VCT-SGR1) that enables for simple recording and zooming proper at your fingertips; Bracket with Accent Shoe; and two Rechargeable Battery Packs (NP-BX1)(21).
