Sony announced the 6th generation of its RX100 camera last month and it is now available in many countries. Dubbed as RX100 VI, the latest version comes with a number of major improvements like phase detection autofocus, improved BIONZ X processor, video recording in 4K HDR and wider zoom range.
The Cyber-shot RX100 VI features a 21MP 1.0-type CMOS sensor which comes with the latest back-illumination technology. With the help of this advanced technology, the camera is now compatible with a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 80 to all the way up to ISO 12800 with minimum noise. Image processing is taken care of by Sony’s new BIONZ-X engine which offers better processor speed, improved eye and face detection, and faster detection of AF/AE.
While there are several noteworthy improvements in this latest release, the most important one is the wider zoom range. The camera features a Vario-Sonnar 24-200mm zoom lens from Zeiss with a focal length of F2.8-F4.5 along with optical image stabilization. This allows you to capture super steady images even when you are holding the camera in your hands.
The super quick Hybrid Auto Focus with phase-detection of 315-points offers the best autofocus speed when compared with other cameras of the same class. While Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI is expensive, you cannot really put a price on the memories that this camera would help you save forever.
