Sony RX100 V Review

 

The RX100 series is Sony's attempt to make the ultimate point-and-shoot compact with a one-inch sensor. This fifth instalment from 2016 has since been succeeded, but not replaced, by the Sony RX100 VI. However, with the latter only bringing minor...

Small and lightweight Tilting screen Built-in electronic viewfinder Large sensor Fast frame rate 4K video recording

Very expensive Screen not touch-sensitive

The RX100 V remains one of the best small-sized compact cameras on the market. Only the lack of a touch-sensitive screen, poor battery life, and that extremely high asking price see it fall short of perfection.

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V review

 

Compact performance redefined

Built-in EVF ; 24fps burst shooting ; 315-point AF system ; Excellent image quality ; Advanced 4K video

Some handling issues ; No touchscreen ; Pricey compared to rivals

Bristling with high-end features that are matched by impressive performance, the RX100 V is a great premium compact that's only let down by some frustrating handling quirks.

Sony RX100 V review: Impressive, but resting on its laurels

 

Sony has completely owned the high-end compact camera market since the launch of the original RX100 back in 2012 . From the third-gen model , it tore up what a palm-sized compact could do by introducing a built-in electronic viewfinder and faster lens....

Great lens and image quality, palm-sized portability, built-in viewfinder, tilt-angle LCD screen, fast burst mode and notable autofocus improvement

Still no touchscreen control, movie button position, autofocus still basic in some modes, no aperture ring, finder assembly per use, huge expense

There's no doubting that the Sony RX100 V is a brilliant compact camera. It's small, it's powerful, its continuous autofocus is notably improved, the images it can enable you to capture are great… but it's not that different to its RX100 IV...

Sony RX100 V review: The fastest shooter in the West

 

A technical triumph, The Sony RX100 V is the ultimate compact camera for those who can afford it.

Outstanding image and video quality ; Genuinely pocket-sized ; Record-breaking performance

Relatively small zoom range ; No touchscreen ; High price

The blistering performance is overkill for most situations but it’s great to have a camera that will always keep up with you. The slow-motion video modes are another highlight, and the extended running time in these modes is welcome. The Sony RX100 IV...

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V review

 

If there's ever been a point-and-shoot that deserves a high price tag, it's Sony's RX100 Mark V.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V

 

Though its price is tough to swallow, the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V is Sony's most advanced pocket camera yet.

1-inch image sensor. Wide-aperture zoom lens. Strong low-light performance. Quick autofocus. 24fps burst shooting. Raw shooting support. Customizable controls. Tilting LCD. Pop-up OLED EVF. Wi-Fi with NFC. Super slow-motion HD video. 4K recording.

Very expensive. Competing models have longer zoom lenses. Omits hot shoe. Lacks touch screen. Long times to clear buffer and render HFR video.

Sony has pulled no punches in designing the RX100 V. The pocket compact has more tech than you'll find in many SLRs. It can shoot 20MP Raw images at 24fps while keeping moving subjects in focus, rolls both 4K footage and 1080p slow motion, and puts...
