Sony RX10 IV Compact Camera
- ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-600mm7 F2.4-4 large-aperture high-resolution high-speed zoom lens
- Approx. 20.1 effective megapixel 1.0-type stacked phase-detection AF Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor with DRAM chip
- BIONZ X™ image processing engine for superior detail reproduction and noise reduction
- 0.03-sec.2 AF response with 315 focal-plane phase-detection AF points
- Up to 24fps4 continuous shooting with AF/AE for up to 2495 shots
Now, it’s easier to capture more stunning stills and movies at every opportunity. The new RX10 IV is much more than a solid, smart all-in-one compact — it packs enough groundbreaking innovations for even professionals to marvel at, from ultra-fast AF system of its kind, to legendary optics throughout its 25x zoom range, to extraordinarily precise, powerful image processing, and more.
AF Makes a Giant Leap
Sony's advanced eye-detection and tracking performance are the secret ingredients for beautiful portraits. Real-time Eye AF detects human eyes and maintains focus as the subject moves, leaving you free to compose your shot.
The same eye-detection algorithms that make great portraits of people have been adapted to animals as well1, to help you get beautiful pet portraits and wildlife shots.
- World-leading 0.03-sec2. AF speed is made possible by the 1.0-type Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor that provides for fast, accurate autofocusing at all times;
- 315 phase-detection AF points cover approx. 65% of the image area to provide widespread autofocus coverage of subjects that appear in the frame;
- With High-density Tracking AF Technology, focus reliably stays on moving subjects and activates AF points to cover the area around the subject.
Touch operation and other autofocus innovations take optimal advantage of the Fast Hybrid AF system’s superior speed, accuracy and versatility for location shooting, continuous shooting and ultra-telephoto shooting:
- Focus Range Limiter3 allows for more rapid focusing according to distance from subjects;
- AF-A mode automatically switches between Single AF and Continuous AF tracking, whichever is optimal;
- With AF-ON, you can capture moments instantly without a half-press focus sequence.
Get the Peak of Action
Consistently capture decisive moments of even fast-moving action. The RX10 IV features a high-speed front-end LSI and the vast power of the BIONZ X™ image processing engine to enable continuous shooting, even with AF/AE tracking, at up to approx. 24fps4 for up to 2495 frames at a time.
Record live performances, wildlife and action without being distracting, by setting the electronic shutter for silent shooting6. Up to 1/32000-sec. fast, this shutter also minimises image distortion.
Sony packs the RX10 IV with extraordinary large-aperture lenses, a state-of-the-art BIONZ X processor ensuring high resolution out to the images’ edges, capability to shoot dazzling bokeh and steady close-ups, and much more. The quality of every still and movie image, even shot at top speed, is as clearly superior as all the innovation that this brilliant Cyber-shot contains.
The built-in ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-600mm7 F2.4-4 high-magnification zoom lens achieves excellent contrast and sharpness in every shot, throughout an extreme wide-angle-to-ultra-telephoto range.
Makes Movies More Expressive
Fast Hybrid AF makes autofocus more speedy and accurate, while 4K movie (QFHD: 3840x2160) recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning ensures footage with resolution high enough to satisfy professionals.
The popular Super Slow Motion8 has been further enhanced, with maximum shooting durations increased significantly (to 4 seconds in Quality Priority mode, and 7 seconds in Shoot Time Priority mode). Even in situations like wild animals or sports shooting where only a long shot is possible, with ultra-telephoto cover out to 600mm7 it’s possible to record impressive super slow motion footage where subjects are captured in close-up.
Focusing, monitoring, setting adjustments and other essential functions not only feel natural to handle at all times — they’re designed to accommodate professional-style applications, as well.

3 At maximum pixel readout.
4 When ISO sensitivity is higher than IS0 3200, the slowest shutter speed limit is 1/4 sec. Manual setting of ISO sensitivity to lower than ISO 3200 is necessary to set shutter speed slower than 1/4. (except RX series models).
5 Speed will be slowing after taking some shots.
6 You may not be able to shoot images in Burst mode depending on the Shooting mode.
7 Continuous shooting speed will be reduced when used together with built-in or external flash.
