From the features perspective, the two new cameras include 1.0 type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with an attached DRAM memory chip. The RX100 IV and RX10 II can record super slow-motion video at up to 40x slower than the standard rate. With options like end trigger mode, users can capture the decisive moment with much more consistency and accuracy. Both cameras have dual video recording functionality, which allow users to capture 16.8MP still images during 4K video recording in any of 11 different composition patterns simply by pressing the shutter button.
The new cameras come with a variety of customisable controls and buttons to fit any photographer’s style.
Kimio Maki, senior general manager, Digital Imaging Business Group for Sony Corporation said in an official release, “The new RX100 IV and RX10 II models make a strong statement for Sony, as they break through all existing boundaries of compact cameras and will allow professionals, hobbyists and enthusiasts to capture images and video that they never before thought were possible.”
