Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV


The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV camera delivers an incredible zoom range and uses a stacked sensor design and phase detection focus for 24fps image capture.

25x zoom lens. Large 1-inch sensor. Phase detect autofocus. 24fps Raw capture with tracking. Dust- and splash-resistant design. Touch LCD and EVF. Top info LCD. Wi-Fi. 4K video and 1080p slow-motion.

Very expensive. No in-lens neutral density filter. Hood blocks flash at wide angles. Can't start a video when still buffer is in use.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV is the most feature-filled, and most expensive, variation of the camera yet. It keeps the same 24-600mm f/2.4-4 lens as the RX10 III (now priced around $1,400), but adds on-sensor phase detection for quicker focus and a...

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV


Is this all-in-one bridge camera the ultimate DSLR killer?. Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV.

Huge zoom range covers almost any photographic opportunity ; Fast, accurate autofocus keeps moving subjects sharp ; Excellent image quality in most lighting conditions

Screen only tilts up or down ; Lacks some expected features, e.g. intervalometer ; Bluetooth under-utilised (only used for geotagging)

Sony has made huge strides in its latest generation of cameras, including the Alpha 6500 APS-C and Alpha 9 full-frame mirrorless models, and the RX100 V compact. But has it successfully transferred this to its long-zoom bridge camera?

Sony RX10 IV


Serving as the successor to the previously released RX10 III, the new RX10 IV features the same basic design, zoom lens, and sensor, while adding a few key internal improvements -- particularly when it comes to the camera's Auto Focus speed, tracking,...

Fully stacked: Hands-on with Sony's RX100 IV and RX10 II


Sony has released updates to its popular RX-series compact cameras, leaving the externals pretty much unchanged, but with a major update to their sensors. Both the RX100 IV and RX10 II feature a newly-developed 1inch 20MP stacked CMOS sensor, which...

Sony RX10 IV Review


In the dying days of 2013, Sony launched the RX10, a camera which was lauded for bringing together the heady mix of a powerful, fixed zoom lens, and a much larger-than-average 1-inch type image sensor, as seen previously in its pocket-friendly RX100 II...

Much as we'd love to see the RX10 IV at a lower pricetag, we can't blame Sony too much here. Developing cameras like these costs a lot of money, and that's money which is hard-fought over in the modern camera market. Rather than asking Sony to lower...

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Mark IV Review


We review the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Mark IV, the latest ultra-zoom bridge camera from Sony, with high-speed shooting.

Like the RX10 Mark III , the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV continues to offer the excellent 25x optical zoom Zeiss lens with a bright f/2.4 aperture at the wide-angle end of the lens, and a bright f/4.0 at the telephoto end of the lens. The use of a 1inch,...

Sony RX100 IV und RX10 im Praxis-Test: Stark für Filmer, wenig Neues für Fotografen


Die Edel-Kompaktkameras Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV und RX10 II konnte CHIP bei einem Herstellerbesuch im Praxis-Test ausprobieren. Tempo und Video-Modus suchen in dieser Klasse ihresgleichen, wie wir im Praxis-Test feststellen. Der Preis allerdings auch.
