Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV review: Still the compact to beat

 

It's 2015 and there's an argument that the compact camera is obsolete in the face of advancing smartphones. The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV is the absolute antithesis to that; a high-end, pocketable compact with large 1-inch sensor and 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8...

The pocketable compact to beat, excellent image quality, built-in electronic viewfinder, fast aperture lens, customisable control ring

Hugely expensive, autofocus performance could be yet faster, still no touchscreen, limited bump over third-gen predecessor

There's no escaping it - the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV is one pricey compact camera. Is that the price of perfection? Almost.

Sony RX100 IV review

 

Sony's latest high-end compact camera gets a faster processor and 4K video

High-resolution viewfinder ; Tilting screen ; Large sensor ; 4K video

High price ; No touchscreen ; Limited raw functionality

The RX100 IV follows in the illustrious footsteps of its predecessors, delivering better image quality than ever. But the absence of a touchscreen and some minor niggles mean it can't quite justify its high price.

Sony goes fourth to conquer the compact competition

Excellent image quality ; 4K videos ; Brilliantly fun HFR mode ; Pocket-sized

Prohibitive price ; Limited zoom range

Sony’s pocket rocket is a compact with almost no compromises

Sony RX100 IV

 

The Sony RX100 IV is the fourth instalment in what has become our favourite compact camera series. Since its beginnings in 2012, it has given us pocket-friendly models that offer image quality good enough to satisfy high-end DSLR-wielders on those days...

Pocketable size ; Excellent shooting speed ; Versatile video ; Great image quality at lower ISOs

Intimidating price

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 Mark IV Review

 

Reviewed, the high speed compact from Sony, the RX100 Mark IV features a bright lens, a large high speed sensor, plus 4K and high speed video recording.

Sony RX100 IV: A pricey point-and-shoot that falls short of greatness [REVIEW]

 

Incredible image and video quality ; Super compact design ; Ultra-sharp retractable electronic viewfinder ; Tiltable display ; Faster autofocusing

4K video recording limited to 5 minutes ; Weakest battery life of any RX100 ; Frustrating slow-motion recording ; Crazy expensive for a point-and-shoot

Sony's RX100 IV is a performance-packed point-and-shoot, but the limited 4K video recording and confusing slow-motion mode isn't worth the $950.

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV review

 

Like its predecessor, the RX100 IV is expensive, but it's also the best compact camera you can buy.

Like the RX100 Mark III, the Mark IV earns our Editor’s Choice. This small package is expensive and it’s a niche camera, but it’s possibly the best compact digicam you can buy; there is some truly amazing enhanced performance over its predecessor and...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV offers serious video improvements over the RX100 III, but it is very expensive for a compact camera.

Wide-aperture zoom lens. 1-inch image sensor. Strong low light performance. 16.1fps burst shooting. Customizable controls. Large, tilting LCD. Pop-up OLED EVF. Quick autofocus. Raw shooting support. Wi-Fi with NFC. Super slow-motion video. 4K recording.

Expensive. Short zoom range. Omits hot shoe. External charger not included.

Conclusions Sony has added features to its RX100 line with each new generation. The Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV is a more iterative update to its predecessor in terms of imaging capability, with the main benefit being a faster burst capture rate. Its EVF...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review

 

Sony rejuvenated the premium compact market in 2012 when it introduced the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. The RX100 took a 1"-type sensor and relatively fast zoom lens and put it into a body that can slip into your pocket. Every year since has seen the arrival...

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV (M4) is less of an clear upgraade over its predecessor the RX100 III (M3) than a forked alternative; for a variety of reasons, I'd classify it as an advanced compact for video enthusiasts rather than a straight-up advanced...

Great video features to supplement its 4K capabilities distinguish the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV from the rest of the advanced-compact pack. It also retains the nice design perks, like a popup electronic viewfinder, of the earlier RX100 models.

Like its predecessor, the autofocus system could be more consistent and the battery life has gotten even worse.

A nice choice if you're looking for an advanced compact with class-leading video capabilities, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV is a little expensive if you just want a good camera for shooting stills.
