Sony, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer today announced an addition to its acclaimed Cyber-shot RX10 series, the RX10 IV (model DSC-RX10M4).
Building on the success of last year’s RX10 III, this new versatile camera features the world’s fastest AF acquisition time of 0.03 seconds and up to 24 fps continuous shooting with full AF/AE tracking, 315 phase-detection AF points that rivals those the fastest professional interchangeable lens cameras and an exceptionally versatile 24-600mm F2.4-F4 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens, the new RX10 IV model delivers an unmatched combination of mobility and speed for imaging enthusiasts and professionals looking for the ultimate ‘all-in-one’ solution.
The impressive RX10 IV camera is equipped with a latest 1.0-type 20.1 MPExmor RS CMOS stacked image sensor with DRAM chip along with a powerful BIONZ X image processor and front-end LSI. These key components all work together to maximize overall speed of operation and performance, ultimately ensuring the highest possible image and video quality throughout the entire range of the 24-600mm lens.
First for Sony’s RX10 series of cameras, the new RX10 IV model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines the respective advantages of 315 phase-detection AF points covering approximately 65% of the sensor and contrast-detection AF to ultimately enable the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.03 seconds. This high speed focusing complements the extensive 24-600mm range of the lens, ensuring all subjects can be captured with precise detail and clarity.
