24–600 mm F2.4–4 large-aperture optical zoom lens

This 25x optical zoom lens features remarkable 24–600 mm extra-wide-angle to ultra-telephoto range plus macro capability, AA (advanced aspherical) and ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, ZEISS T Coating, and large F2.4–4 aperture. These help the camera to provide high optical performance for high resolution and beautiful bokeh.

Exmor RS CMOS sensor for speed

315-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides for extraordinarily fast, precise autofocusing and tracking. Furthermore, the 20.1 MP (effective) 13.2 x 8.8 mm (1.0-type) stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960fps super slow motion shooting and up to 1/32000 s super high speed Anti-Distortion shutter.

High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

Achieving processing performance beyond its predecessor, the new BIONZ X image processing engine is remarkably reliable at capturing fast-moving subjects and continuous shooting of up to 24fps. Its newly developed image processing algorithm lets you capture high quality images with less noise across the sensitivity range while maintaining natural details.

Fast Hybrid AF moves further ahead

For its RX10 series camera debut, Fast Hybrid AF is capable of lightning-fast 0.03 s autofocusing response. This groundbreaking AF system seamlessly integrates the superlative speed and tracking of focal-plane phase-detection AF plus the high accuracy of contrast-detection AF, and boosts the camera's capabilities to focus, track and capture sharp, clear still images of subjects in all situations, even in the middle of fast, dynamic action.

Wide high-density 315-AF-point coverage

The world's most focal-plane phase-detection AF points (315) cover approx. 65% of the entire image area of the RX10 IV's new image sensor. This makes AF coverage widespread and dense enough to quickly capture subjects, such as small or fast-moving ones that are otherwise difficult to focus on, throughout the image area. [1] Phase-detection AF coverage (315 points) [2] Contrast-detection AF coverage (25 points)

High-density Tracking AF Technology

Tracking performance is highly reliable, as the RX10 IV is the first Cyber-shot camera with High-density Tracking AF Technology that activates AF points to cover the area around a subject with outstanding precision and stability.

Easy, natural Touch Pad and Touch Focus

With the Touch Pad function, you can shift focus simply by sliding your finger across the LCD screen from one area to another while looking at the viewfinder. Whether you make the shift according to finger motion distance (relative position) or the area of the frame that you touch on the screen (absolute position), shifting is smooth and easy. For Touch Focus, simply touch the LCD at the point of the image that you want to focus on.

Enhanced Eye AF

Eye AF can capture intriguing facial expressions with highly precise eye detection that has been enhanced to automatically focus and track focus on a subject's eye, even as the face moves or turns to a 3/4 view. This capability extends your freedom to frame a great shot.

AF streamlines focus operation

Faster autofocusing relies on smart functions including Focus Range Limiter, which allows you to restrict focus to subjects that are 3 m or further away; AF-ON setting, which lets you trip the shutter without the lengthier half-press focus sequence; and AF-A mode, which automatically switches between AF-S (Single AF) and AF-C (Continuous AF) modes, according to changes in subject motion.

Recall Custom Setting during Hold

Memorized exposure settings (shutter speed, aperture, AF area, etc.) can be assigned to custom buttons for temporary recall while the button is held. For example, if you shoot sports in a stadium, you might want to quickly capture a shot of the scoreboard, requiring a temporary change in exposure, and then go back to the action.

Focus Area Registration

Customize a button by assigning it to a frequently used focus area setting, then instantly recall that setting whenever you like. This can be handy if an ideal focus point frequently changes, for example between strokes in a tennis match. Focus point as well as focus area can be set as desired for optimal focus performance for the scene being photographed.

Continuous shooting capability expanded

The powerful combination of the Exmor RS 13.2 x 8.8 mm (1.0-type) image sensor and the BIONZ X image processing engine enables continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking at up to approx. 24fps for up to 249 frames at a time. Decisive moments of even fast-moving action can be captured assuredly as a result.

Silent shooting for sensitive situations

At performances, when close to wildlife and in other noise-sensitive situations, you can shoot in silence, even during continuous shooting, by muting the camera's shutter sound with a couple of simple settings ("Shutter type: Electronic" and "Audio signals: Off").

Anti-distortion shutter for fast-moving subjects

Fast data readout from the Exmor RS image sensor noticeably reduces distortion in images of fast-moving subjects such as the kicking of a ball. The anti-distortion electronic shutter achieves shutter speeds as fast as 1/32000 s. [1] Conventional electronic shutter[2] RX10 IV electronic shutter

Shooting movies with Fast Hybrid AF

When shooting movies, this advanced AF system is twice as fast, making focusing smoother and simpler and enabling the same wide-ranging use of phase-detection AF as when shooting still images. Drive speed/AF tracking settings can be made to express focus in creative ways. For example, by shooting at the low end of the AF speed range, you can achieve distinctive slow focus effects.

4K movie recording/XAVC S format

The RX10 IV can condense about 1.7 times as much data as is required for 4K output into 4K movie recordings. Full pixel readout and no pixel binning reduces moir
