Sony RX10 IV superzoom camera arrives
The camera boasts 315 phase-detect AF pixels and 24fps burst shooting
Sony has strengthened its superzoom RX10 line with a new flagship model. The RX10 IV follows much the same idea as the RX10 III that was released last year, and is once again based around a 20.1MP one-inch sensor and a 24-600mm f2.4-4 lens.
Sony has now combined a 315-point phase-detect AF system with 25 contrast-detect AF points, and claims the camera can focus in just 0.03sec. This, according to the company, is faster than any other camera with a one-inch sensor and a fixed lens.
The new model is additionally capable of 24fps burst shooting with autofocus and auto-exposure working throughout, as well as 4K video capture. Sony has also furnished the camera with a 2.35million-dot OLED viewfinder and a three-inch LCD screen, and also thrown in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth. The RX10 IV will go on sale from October at £1,800.
