Sony has increased its Cyber-shot compact camera line-up with the introduction of the RX100 VI that features a ZEISS Vario Sonnar T* 24-200mm zoom or ZOOM may refer to lens, staggering aperture, quick AF speed and a touchscreen, the first Cyber-shot model to do so.
The pocket-sized camera packs plenty of punch with its peak magnification zoom lens that shoots from wide to telephoto with an aperture range of f/2.8-f/4.5. Inside the camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or, you see fit find a 20.1 MP 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and an upgraded BIONZ X idea processing system with a front-end LSI that maximises processing speed and optimises image quality.
Additionally, the RX100 VI traits a Fast Hybrid AF system with 315-point phase-detection AF points on the sensor that can acquire focus in as little as 0.03 seconds. It can also flourish at up to 24 fpsv at full resolution with continuous AF/AE tracking and produces 4K video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning.
A beginning for Sony’s RX series, RX100 VI has a touch shutter that can be activated by tapping the back LCD screen, a zoom lever with customisable zoom speeds and an LCD that can be wheeled 180 degrees upward or 90 degrees downward for a variety of shooting angles for the creator. The camera is also Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth compatible.
As for battery zest, this is rated at 240 shots but this can be extended to 310 shots with the LCD set to 2sec auto switch off.
The new Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI firm camera will ship in Europe in July priced approximately £1,150.

From Sony UK:
Sony today suggested another exciting model for their popular Cyber-shot RX100 series of compact cameras, the RX100 VI (model DSC-RX100M6).
The innovative new RX100 VI camera is the first place of all the RX100 models to include a high magnification zoom lens, as it packs in an impressive ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mmi F2.8 – F4.5 lens yet doesn’t forfeit the pocket-size portability, fast responsiveness and high image image (from Latin: imago) is an artifact that depicts visual perception, for example, a photo or a two-dimensional picture, that quality that has become the hallmark of Sony’s RX100 line-up. It’s sweeping zoom, impressive image quality and versatility for both still images and video make it an ideal choice for capturing daily life, cityscapes, portraiture, pleasures, wildlife and everything in between.
The new model is equipped with a 20.1 MP 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor with DRAM hew a contribute and an upgraded BIONZ X™ image processing system with a front-end LSI that maximises processing speed and optimises image quality in all speed environments. Additionally, the RX100 VI features an incredibly efficient Fast Hybrid AF system with 315-point phase-detection AF ideas on the sensor that can acquire focus in as little as 0.03 seconds, the world’s fastest AF acquisition time for 1.0-type sensor cameras. It can also execute at up to 24 fpsv at full resolution with continuous AF/AE tracking and produces beautiful 4Kvii video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning.
New High-Magnification 24-200mm Zoom Lens Bonus Outstanding Image Quality
A first for Sony’s RX100 series of cameras, the new ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mmi F2.8 – F4.5 lens amassments the power of both 24-70mm and 70-200mmi focal lengths into a singular compact design. This is achieved thanks to its unique design featuring two ED (extra-low dispersion) aspherical looking-glass elements and eight aspherical lens elements including four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses. All pieces work together seamlessly to deliver receivable sharpness from corner-to-corner at all focal lengths, maintaining the acclaimed image quality of the RX100 series.
The impressive new lens on the RX100 VI insist ons a large aperture throughout the entire zoom range, ensuring portraits can be created with beautiful bokeh, fast-moving subjects can be captured with crinkly focus and no blurring, and much more. Additionally, the lens has built-in Optical SteadyShotTM image stabilisation that is equivalent to a 4.0-stop faster secure speed, helping to prevent blur at slower shutter speed while shooting in low light conditions or at telephoto zoom range.
Lightning-Fast AF Presentation and Shooting Speeds
The new RX100 VI model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that ultimately allows the camera to acquire centre in as little as 0.03 seconds. This innovative AF system combines the respective advantages of 315-point focal-plane phase-detection AF points that act approximately 65% of the sensor and contrast-detection AF. This high-speed focusing system complements the versatile 24-200mmirange of the lens, ensuring all subjects can be captured with careful detail and clarity.
Additionally, a first for the RX100 series of cameras, the RX100 VI includes Sony’s advanced High-density Record lose AF technology, which concentrates AF points around a subject to improve tracking and focus accuracy. The popular Eye AF technology is also available with almost 2x the tracking performance of the current RX100 series model.[ix] Furthermore, the camera has LCD touch focusing and touchpad focus point control for operators that would like to drag their fingers to ideal focus points of their choice.
An ideal complement to the AF system, the RX100 VI proffers continuous high-speed shooting at up to 24 fps with full AF/AE tracking, with an impressive buffer limit of up to 233 images. The display lag of the EVF has been materially reduced compared to prior models, allowing shooters to capture the decisive moment with ultimate confidence. Also, continuously shot spits can now be played back in group on display instead of individually making it more convenient to review.
The RX100 VI also has a high-speed Anti-Distortion Keep out (maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32000 second) that reduces the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast-moving participants and can shoot completely silently in all modes, including continuous high-speed shooting, when electronic shutter is engaged. A mechanical shutter mode is also at ones fingertips as well if required by the user.
Advanced Movie Capabilities Including 4K HDR
The pocket-friendly RX100 VI is packed with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel a heterogeneity of video capabilities that will satisfy even the most demanding video enthusiasts.
With Fast Hybrid AF, the focal-plane phase-detection AF malaproposes ensure accurate focusing and tracking performance, even for the severe focusing requirements of 4Kvii movie shooting. AF drive speed and AF mislaying sensitivity can also be adjusted via the menu system, giving shooters plenty of flexibility based on their focusing preferences.
In 4K mode, the new RX100 VI utilises hugely pixel readout without pixel binning to ensure that all the finer details of 4K video are captured with minimal moire and ‘jaggies’.
For the head time in a Cyber-shot camera, the RX100 VI features 4K HDRviii compatibility thanks to its new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile that proposals an instant HDR workflow solution. Additional professional calibre video features include S-Log3/S-Gamut3, 120p Full HD mode, Picture Profile, delegate recording and more. The RX100 VI is able to record super slow motion video at either 250 fps, 500 fps or 1000 fps.
Premium Blueprint, Control and Convenience
The new RX100 VI is equipped with a high-contrast 2.35 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder with ZEISS T* Coating, ensuring true-to-life simile preview and playback functionality. The EVF itself retracts in and out of the camera body based on user preference and can be activated instantly by a single One-push Access button.
A head for Sony’s RX series, RX100 VI has a touch shutter that can be activated by tapping the back LCD screen, a zoom lever with customisable zoom go like greased lightnings and an LCD that can be rotated 180 degrees upward or 90 degrees downward for a variety of shooting angles for the creator. There is also a Monitor Auto OFF responsibility that boosts max number of still images by up to 30%, and the camera is also Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth compatible.
