Thanks to improved camera tech, lenses, and even simulated portrait lighting, iPhones and the like have overtaken the traditional digital pocket camera as everybodys favorite go-to gadget for capturing those special moments. Smartphones have essentially replaced the point-and-shoot, and it seems that neither adding Wi-Fi nor lowering prices can stop the declining sales of the pocket cameras we grew up with.Its no surprise that a RX100 camera should feature here.
The RX100 uses a newly developed 20-megapixel, 1-inch-type stacked sensor and 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens that is similar to its predecessor except with a better performance rate. If you always seem to be missing the perfect moment with your Smartphone then you will be pleased to know that the RX100 V has the fastest autofocus speed in its class at 0.05 seconds. The camera employs 315 autofocus points across 65-percent of the frame in a hybrid phase- and contrast-detection system.
That means fast and accurate focusing in a variety of settings and lighting conditions. The actual shooting speed is very impressive, with a burst rate of 24 (fps) at full resolution. This is an increase of 8 fps over the previous RX100 IV model. The RX100 V also boasts a full menu of video features. It can shoot 4K video at 30 fps, 1080p at up to 120 fps, and super-slow-motion at 240, 480. This camera is loaded with special features and functions if you know where to look for them but even without all of the extra bells and whistles, this still remains a very user friendly camera.
