Sony RX100 VI compact camera with 24-200mm lens

Sony has expanded its Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 series in India by launching the RX100 IV (model DSC-RX100M6).

The new compact camera comes with a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T 24-200mm f/2.8 - f/4.5 lens that has 24-70mm and 70-200mm focal lengths.

Also, there is a 0.3-second AF speed that is touted to be the world's fastest AF speed. The camera additionally supports 4K video recording support with full pixel readout and 4K HDR.

It was announced in the U.S last month with a price tag of $1,200 (approximately Rs. 82,400).

The Sony RX100 VI comes to India with a price of Rs 99,990. It goes on sale through all Sony Center, Sony authorised dealers, and major electronic stores across the country.

Sony has provided a 1-inch 20.1-megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor on the RX100 VI that is equipped with a DRAM chip.

The sensor works with an upgraded Bionz X image processor and includes a front-end LSI. For focusing on objects, the latest RX-Series model has a Fast Hybrid AF system that locks the focus in as little as 0.03 seconds, as the company's claim.

The AF system also works with the built-in 315-point focal-plane phase-detection AF points that are rated to cover as much as 65 percent of the sensor.

Likewise, there is a contrast-detection AF technology. Sony has additionally offered a high-precision Eye AF that combines with the high-performance AF tracking.

To complement to the AF system, the RX100 VI comes with high-speed shooting at up to 24fps with full AF/ AE tracking - with a buffer limit of up to 233 images.
