Mark Goldstein's extensive review of the RX-100 V for PhotographyBLOG details all the upgrades and features Sony's new model has to offer.
One of the most noted achievements of the newly announced RX-100 V is its speed. Goldstein remarks, "At the heart of the RX100 V is a newly developed 20.1 megapixel 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with a DRAM chip, which allows it to continuously shoot at 24fps at full resolution with AF/AE tracking for up to 150 JPEGs, the world’s fastest for a compact camera."
PhotographyBlog's review brings special attention to the RX-100 V's outstanding ease of use and the intuitive design by Sony. "Remarkably, the RX100 V also has an electronic viewfinder to fall back on in brighter lighting conditions, which has been cleverly integrated into the camera so that it's hidden away when not in use."
Another highly sought after feature is premium video capability. As Goldstein points out, this is another area where the RX-100 V shines bright. "Sony has gone to great lengths to enhance the RX100 V’s video abilities, as not only can it record at Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution at 30fps for up to 5 minutes, but the power of the Bionz X processor can also be harnessed to record slow motion, high frame rate Full HD 1920x1080 sequences at up to 960fps and 8 seconds in duration via the dedicated HFR shooting mode."
PhotographyBLOG's last words warn that users, especially those new to the RX-100 line, that they will fall in love fast and hard for this new model saying, "The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V is undoubtedly the most advanced compact camera that we've reviewed..."
