A large F2.8 maximum aperture throughout an expansive 24-200mm* zoom range gives you ample opportunity to express your vision and manipulate depth of field to defocus backgrounds as great photographers do. The impeccable Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens’ advanced, compact fixed-lens design optimises image quality consistently from edge to edge.
Containing back-illuminated technology and approximately 4x larger light-sensitive area that other compact DSC (digital still cameras) can't match, Sony's 20.2-megapixel 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor harnesses light and reduces image noise very efficiently. This, along with high settings of a wide ISO range, allow even photos of dimly lit scenes to look incredibly clear.
Incredibly Fast Processing Of Detail-rich Images
The groundbreaking BIONZ X image processing engine not only maximises picture quality in ways that only a seamlessly unified body and lens design can realise — it also faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, with peerless high-speed processing. The experience of shooting and viewing stills and movies expands your senses by depicting true realism with richer tonal gradations and lower image noise than was previously possible. With such a high magnitude of power ready for every situation, BIONZ X naturally leads toward better ways to witness the world in full glory.
Faster And Greater Focusing Versatility
High-speed AF is remarkably smooth thanks to the Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) with precision-engineered focusing stop positions designed to minimise focusing lens travel distance, which shortens focusing time. Its Lock-on AF precisely focuses even on moving subjects by continuously adjusting target frame size based on its recognition of subject characteristics. The Eye AF function detects and focuses on a subject’s eye, even if the subject is facing or looking slightly away from the camera.
See spectacular clarity, contrast and detail in every scene, regardless of conditions, on the built-in, bright, high-resolution OLED Tru-Finder™. Four dual-sided aspherical lenses provide a big, approx. 33-degree view angle and maintain excellent edge-to-edge visibility of the electronic viewfinder. An approximately 1,229 K-dot 3.0-type White Magic™ LCD lets users see fine detail of a subject. This tiltable display also extends from about 84 degrees upward to about 43 degrees downward for added shooting flexibility.
Thoughtfully Designed For Effortless Operation
The manual ring gives you direct control of certain settings, zooming and focusing, according to the focus mode in use. In addition, before turning the aperture ring to set F-stop, you can turn Aperture Click Switch on for a stepwise feel of assurance, or off for a quiet, smooth feel when setting the aperture. A display panel on top lets you glance at key settings without moving the camera as you look through the viewfinder. An improved graphical user interface makes access to frequently used functions absolutely effortless. Just press the Fn button to display a list of them.
Full HD Movie
The RX10 not only records Full HD movies in the AVCHD Progressive, 1920 x 1080 format - it also lets you select between 60p and 24p shooting modes, for supremely smooth-looking or cinematically expressive movies, respectively. Microphone input, headphone and HDMI output jacks facilitate full-fledged movie shooting.
Thanks to optical image stabilisation (in Active mode), clear movies with reduced camera shake are possible. To ensure clearer and sharper images and movies, it has built-in features such as: Optical SteadyShot (for still image shooting), Optical SteadyShot Active mode (for sharper images and movies), and Optical type with electronic compensation (Anti-rolling).
