- Sony RX100 VI Compact Camera
Not just like your everyday compact camera, the Sony RX100 VI combines improved performance and features with a longer reach through the 8.0x optical zoom. The camera is designed with the updated 20.1MP, 1" EXMOR RS CMOS Sensor as well as the BIONZ X Image Processor and Front-End LSI offering a fast 24 fps Continuous Shooting with a high ISO 12800 sensitivity which is capable of recording UHD 4K30p Video with HLG and S-Log3 Gammas. The Fast Hybrid AF System with 315 Points is very helpful in accurate focusing to your object with precise tracking in still photography or even in live video recording. Eye-level viewing or reviewing the shots can be made via the 3.0" 921.6k-Dot 180° Tilting Touchscreen. For sharing and easy file transfer, built-in Wi-Fi and NFC can be used while the dual SD slots will accommodate memory cards for storing your files. This camera comes with ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24–200 mm F2.8–4.5 high-resolution zoom lens plus a bonus SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC UHS-II 300mb/s Memory Card (32GB).
Product Features in Detail
Extraordinary performance in an elegantly engineered package
All the features you need to capture the moment are here—wide 24–200 mm zoom range, lightning-fast autofocus, rapid continuous shooting, improved video capabilities, and pro-level operability—all in a remarkably compact body.
Stunning, high-resolution image quality, from wide-angle to telephoto
Every aspect and component of the RX100 VI has been skillfully engineered to work in tandem to achieve unrivalled image quality. Cleverly designed optics pack incredible power in a small footprint, while optical image stabilization maintains a steady image even with handheld shots at the telephoto end of the zoom range. The advanced image processing engine delivers better perceived image resolution with low noise.
The newly designed ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24–200 mm F2.8–4.5 lens
The new lens system is effectively configured to achieve maximum resolution and clarity across the entire zoom range, while correcting for spherical, coma and chromatic aberrations. It brings truly remarkable telephoto capability to a pocket-size package, to vastly expand your range of creative expression.
Wide zoom range in a compact body
The lens optics (15 elements in 12 groups) provide uncompromising high-quality images over a broad zoom range despite the compact configuration.
Lens elements including four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses and two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements work together to achieve superb resolution right out to the periphery of the image, throughout the telephoto range.
Large apertures across the zoom range enable rapid shutter speeds and large amounts of bokeh. Even in the mid-telephoto range, the camera maintains apertures of F4 at 100 mm1 and F4.5 at 200 mm1.
Advanced image stabilization is equivalent to 4.0-stop faster shutter speed
Sony is justifiably proud of its sophisticated image stabilization system, and now we've improved it even further, providing a degree of stabilization equivalent to raising the shutter speed 4.0 stops2 at the 200 mm telephoto end. Capture high-quality images even at long range and in low light, with reliably steady handheld shooting.
High-performance 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor
The 1.0-type CMOS sensor employs an innovative stacked structure to boost processing speed, while its back-illumination technology increases light collection efficiency to achieve a wide sensitivity range (ISO 803-12800) with reduced noise.
The BIONZ X™ advanced image processing engine contributes to image quality
Advances in the BIONZ X processing algorithm contribute to higher perceived resolution and low noise levels as well as more accurate face and eye detection. Improved image processor speed also enables faster AF/AE detection.
Fast Hybrid AF system achieves the speediest autofocus in its class at 0.03 sec
Remarkably rapid autofocus that's top of its class4 is achieved by combining focal-plane phase-detection AF, with its fast speed and excellent tracking capabilities, and contrast-detection AF, with its high degree of accuracy.
Broad coverage from a 315-point wide-area phase-detection AF coverage
The 315 focal plane phase-detection AF points cover approx. 65% of the image area, and their wide area and high-density configuration mean that even distant, small and fast-moving subjects—often difficult to focus on—can be captured to the edge of the image.
 Phase-detection AF coverage (315 points)
 Contrast-detection AF coverage (25 points)
Tenacious autofocus holds onto fast-moving subjects
When your subject is moving quickly and changing direction, the High-density Tracking AF Technology keeps up with the action, densely concentrating AF points around the subject's location.

Advanced Eye AF, ideal for portrait shots
The sophisticated Eye AF system has excellent tracking performance as it accurately focuses on your subject's eyes to facilitate better portrait shots.
Touch Focus features make shifting focus intuitive
The Touch Focus feature allows you to set the focus simply by touching the monitor, while Touch Pad AF lets you drag your finger to intuitively position the focus when you're using the viewfinder.
Quality 4K movies with enhanced production versatility
The first HDR (HLG) support among Cyber-shot™ cameras
HDR (High Dynamic Range) video, with its wider range of color and brightness, is now ready to enjoy without extra processing thanks to HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) recording capability.
