Open your Outlook Across a Vast New Range A large f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout an expansive 24-200mm (35mm equivalent) zoom range gives you ample opportunity to express your vision. Make a subject stand out — manipulate depth of field to defocus backgrounds for creative effect, as great photographers do. The impeccable Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar T* lens’ advanced, compact fixed-lens design optimizes image quality consistently from edge to edge.
More Room to Zoom at Will Close-up shooting is seamless. No switching to macro mode is needed. Zoom in all the way up to extreme telephoto on a subject as near as 11-inches (30cm) away. The built-in lens makes it more convenient for you to take impressive shots throughout a big range.
More Capability Now More Compact An advanced aspherical lens (AA lens) reduces diameter and length, and maintains high resolution even at image edges. A new Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) stops lens movement with spot-on precision. Far-reaching optical flexibility minimizes mechanical dimensions. Precise alignment of the image sensor and lens also perfectly combines diminutive form and outsized performance.
Superior Sensitivity Makes a Clear Difference Containing back-illuminated technology and approximately 4x larger light-sensitive area that other compact DSC (digital still cameras) can’t match, Sony’s 20.2-megapixel 1.0-inch Exmor R® CMOS sensor harnesses light and reduces image noise very efficiently. This, along with high settings of a wide ISO range, allow even photos of dimly lit scenes to look incredibly clear.
New-generation Image Processing Engine, BIONZ® X, Leads a New World The groundbreaking new BIONZ® X image processing engine not only maximizes picture quality in ways that only a seamlessly unified body and lens design can realize — it also faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, with peerless high-speed processing. The experience of shooting and viewing stills and movies expands your senses by depicting true realism with richer tonal gradations and lower image noise than was previously possible. With such a high magnitude of power ready for every situation, BIONZ X naturally leads toward better ways to witness the world in full glory.
Detail Reproduction Technology By minimizing digital artifacts that tend to overemphasize hard outlines and rough edges when pictures are reproduced, detail reproduction technology makes images noticeably more lifelike, clean and natural-looking in every detail, texture and dimension.
Diffraction-reducing Technology This maintains outstanding clarity by applying aperture-appropriate filter processing to suppress and compensate for diffraction — a phenomenon that can otherwise limit photographic resolution and cause points of light to appear blurred, especially in images that have been shot using a small aperture (large F-number) setting.
Improved Area-specific Noise Reduction Now, noise reduction is individually adjusted based on imaging pattern variations, for superior clarity and finer details throughout even images shot in low light.
Quick Focusing Even at Telephoto Range High-speed AF is remarkably smooth thanks to the Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) with precision-engineered focusing stop positions designed to minimize focusing lens travel distance, which shortens focusing time.
More Flexible Focus Area Selection Choose among three concentric Flexible Spot frames for greater focusing versatility and precision than other cameras’ fixed-focus spot frame systems can provide.
Lock-on AF Tracks with Smart Precision Just press the shutter button halfway to activate11 Lock-on AF. It precisely focuses even on moving subjects by continuously adjusting target frame size based on its recognition of subject characteristics. You can easily stay focused on the main action because this object tracking innovation optimizes autofocus timing. Even when a subject goes out of frame temporarily, tracking resumes at the moment that it is recaptured after re-entering the frame.
New Eye AF on the Soul of the Subject Applying advanced detection technology, this new Eye AF function detects and focuses on a subject’s eye, even if the subject is facing or looking slightly away from the camera. Then, a blinking green frame appears on that eye in the viewfinder image to indicate the point of focus for the upcoming shot.
More Functions Broaden Creative Boundaries An abundance of powerful higher-performance functions and options are invaluable for capturing moving images of superior resolution and stunning clarity with minimal noise, even while zooming on the action. Plenty of connections make it easy to create an even more versatile production system by hooking up the latest digital recording, monitoring and processing devices to the camera.
Shoot for More in Full HD As Full High Definition (Full HD) movie recording has become a standard of high-performance video recording and playback, Sony advances better ways to take advantage of its potential. Accordingly, the RX10 not only records Full HD movies1 in the AVCHD Progressive, 1920 x 1080 format — it also lets you select between 60p and 24p shooting modes, for supremely smooth-looking or cinematically expressive movies, respectively. To maintain clear, steady movie shooting results, take advantage of optical image stabilization in Active mode to effectively reduce camera shake.
Ensuring Professional-caliber Sound and More The RX10 has plenty of features to realize more of the potential in your movies. To record sound with precision worthy of professional production, connect a high-performance microphone through an input terminal. Monitor pristine stereo sound through premium-quality Sony headphones plugged into the headphone jack. A built-in HDMI® output terminal also accommodates connection of a TV, computer or DVD player/recorder. Audio metering and recording level control are instrumental to keeping soundtracks smooth and consistent. Use the camera’s Multi Interface Shoe and an optional XLR Adaptor Kit to hook up external recording, flash and other accessories. It all adds up to a set of professional-class capabilities that is unprecedented among all other compact cameras.
For Clean Simultaneous Signal Output Clear, uncompressed digital movie signal output can be transferred to an external monitor/recorder (connected via the HDMI® terminal) simultaneously in real time from the RX10. The shooting info display can be turned off for even cleaner views of such movies on an external monitor/recorder.
For a Truer View of Every Scene See spectacular clarity, contrast and detail in every scene, regardless of conditions, on the built-in, bright, high-resolution OLED Tru-Finder™.
