The Sony RX100 VI uses a 20.1MP resolution high-performance 1.0 –type stacked CMOS sensor with back-illumination technology to enable a wide sensitivity range from ISO 80 – 12800 with reduced noise. Taking care of the image processing is Sony’s BIONZ X engine with improved processor speed, more accurate face and eye detection, as well as faster AF/AE detection.
One of the most impressive features of the sixth generation RX100 from Sony is a wider zoom range. With a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T 24-200mm F2.8-F4.5 zoom lens and optical image stabilization, you can capture steady images even handheld at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Sony also claims the RX100 VI offers best-in-class autofocus speeds thanks to a fast Hybrid AF system with 315-point phase-detection AF coverage that achieves autofocus in just 0.03 seconds. This is achieved by combining focal-plan phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF. The continuous shooting feature lets users capture up to 24 frames per second and up to 233 continuous shots.
Apart from being capable of capturing stunning images, the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI is also capable of shooting high-quality video. The RX100 VI is the first Cyber-shot camera to feature HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) recording capability for 4K HDR videos. Apart from 4K video, the RX100 VI is capable of shooting slow-motion videos at up to 960 fps. Users can adjust the AF speed settings to add slow-focus and other similar effects when shooting videos.
The RX100 VI also comes with a one-push access 0.39–type XGA OLED Tru-Finder with 100% field coverage and 2,359,296 dots. Another feature that will appeal to users is the tiltable 3.0-inch LCD display with touch focusing and touchpad focus point control. It can be rotated 180 degrees upward or 90 degrees downward. In terms of connectivity, the RX100 VI supports IEEE802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz, Bluetooth 4.1, and NFC. Input and output terminals include Micro USB, Hi-Speed USB 2.0, and Micro HDMI. As for battery life, Sony claims the RX100 VI can capture up to 240 still images with the Monitor On and up to 40 minutes of movie shooting using either the monitor or the ViewFinder.
