Travelling light doesnâ€™t mean compromising on picture quality with the new Cyber-shotâ„¢ DSC-RX100 camera.
Sleekly crafted in aluminium for strength, lightness and luxurious looks, the RX100 inherits many advanced imaging features from Sonyâ€™s range of A-mount and E-mount camera families. Itâ€™s an accomplished partner for travel, portraits or street photography, with impressive picture quality and intuitive, comfortable control options that make the RX100 ideal as a step-up from point-and-shoot cameras. Itâ€™s also ideal as a pocket-sized second camera for enthusiasts who want to capture pristine stills and Full HD video while theyâ€™re on the move.
At the heart of the Cyber-shotâ„¢ RX100 is the worldâ€™s first* 1.0-type Exmor CMOS sensor with a resolution of 20.2 effective megapixels. Specially developed by Sony, the sensor has an area thatâ€™s around four times larger than the 1/2.3-type imager in regular point-and-shoot cameras. Capturing far more light than small-sensor cameras, itâ€™s the key to beautiful, detail packed images and Full HD movie clips with very low noise.
The larger sensor is partnered with an ultra-bright Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 3.6x optical zoom range. In contrast with standard point-and-shoot cameras, the wide F1.8 maximum aperture lets in more light to complement the resolving power of the large 1.0-type Exmor CMOS sensor.
In common with high-performance DSLR optics, the lens features seven- bladed circular aperture. This makes it easy to produce pro-style â€˜bokehâ€™ effects, with subjects in sharp focus against a smoothly-blurred background. The lens also features an Advanced Aspherical (AA) glass element that contributes to the cameraâ€™s extremely compact dimensions without sacrificing optical performance or resolution.
