Launched last month, the Sony RX100 VII is now shipping from B&H, Amazon, and a store near you. The seventh version of Sony’s very popular all-in-one pocket camera costs $1998. The 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 zoom is paired with a 20.1-megapixel stacked CMOS image sensor.
Most important, the latest RX100 uses imaging pipeline tech from the a9 to capture up to 20 FPS with no blackout. The tiny body performs AF/AE calculations up to 60 times while the autofocus will lock on in 0.02 seconds with human and animal eye detect.
In addition, the RX100 VII will burst shoot at up to 90 FPS. 357 tracking and autofocus points means you’re gonna get the shot too.
