Includes Sony Real-Time Tracking technology, winner of Best Photo Innovation in the TIPA Awards 2020.
Once locked on with a half-shutter press, Sony's Real-Time Tracking AF Technology tracks the subject wherever it moves within the frame.
With Real-time EyeAF (for humans and animals) the camera will automatically pick up and lock onto the eye of the subject, when visible in the shot. It's speed and accuracy helped it to be awarded with the Best Photo Innovation certification at the 2020 TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) World Awards 2020.
Broad Zoom Range from a Pocket Sized Camera
The built-in ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm F2.8-4.5 zoom lens covers a broad zoom range equivalent to two standard zoom lenses (24-70mm and 70-200mm), all in a very compact size. It's configured with eight aspherical lens elements with 13 aspherical faces to achieve maximum resolution, clarity and contrast across the entire zoom range, and all the way out to the edge of the image. Four of Sony's original AA (advanced aspherical) elements help minimise spherical, coma and chromatic aberrations.
Newly Developed Image Sensor
The newly developed Exmor RS™ 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor works in tandem with the latest BIONZ X™ image-processing engine to deliver powerful levels of performance. The result is fast, Blackout-free Shooting at up to 20fps and Single Burst Shooting at up to 90fps. Reliable AF/AE tracking is also possible, so you won't lose track of a moving subject even at telephoto range.
The 20.1MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor uses back-illumination technology for increased light-collection efficiency. The standard ISO range is 100-12800, expanded to ISO64 and ISO80 for stills. In conjunction with the processor, it delivers high perceived resolution, low noise, highly accurate colour reproduction and natural skin tones.
Enhanced Real-time Eye AF
Real-time Eye AF detects and focuses on the eyes of your subjects, even when part of the face is hidden, backlit or facing downwards. With up to 60 AF calculations per second, the RX100 VII's AF enables powerful continuous shooting, and beautiful portrait shots whether person or animal. For human subjects, activating Real-time Eye AF simply requires a half-press of the shutter button.
Optical SteadyShot™ equivalent to 4.0 stops
The camera's built-in image stabilisation delivers the equivalent of a 4.0-stop shutter speed increase at 200mm, to compensate for camera shake during hand-held shooting, even in low-light conditions. Overall, this leads to sharp images of amazing quality.
4K HDR (HLG) Video Recording
When shooting 4K video, the RX100 VII uses full pixel readout, without pixel binning, and 1.7x oversampling to provide outstanding resolution. The XAVC S video format supports high-bitrate recording (max. 100Mbps) and with HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) capability you can enjoy HDR images simply by connecting the camera to an HDR (HLG) compatible Sony TV via a USB cable. In addition, the camera's image-stabilisation system has evolved to use "Active" mode during 4K video recording.
