Sony launches the compact RX100 IV and high-zoom RX10 II cameras. The two new models feature the world’s first 1.0 type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with advanced signal processing and an attached DRAM memory chip. The high speed signal processing and DRAM memory chip work together to enable more than 5 times the readout rate of image data and are responsible for a variety of standout features that have previously been available only in selected professional-level video cameras.
These capabilities include 40 times super slow motion video capture at up to 960fps3, an ultra-fast Anti-Distortion Shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32000 second, high-resolution 4K movie shooting4 and more.

Sony’s proprietary AF algorithm allows them to recognize and lock-in on a subject with a simple half-press of the shutter button at a much more efficient rate compared to previous models. The new cameras also have Wi-Fi and NFC compatibility and the ability to access Sony’s range of PlayMemories Camera Applications.
