Product information
Capture perfect shot from any distance, enjoy outstanding operability and easy connectivity with the Sony DSC-RX10 High Performance Compact Digital Camera - packing the power of a DSLR into a compact and intuitive body.

Exceptional photography

At the heart of the high performance compact sits a powerful 20.2 MP 1.0-type Exmor™ R CMOS image sensor. The highly-sensitive sensor harnesses the power of the sharp Carl Zeiss lens to produce stunning photographs. Images are bursting with pin-sharp detail, colour tones are natural and the image clarity is second to none. The large sensor grabs more light which reduces the noise levels and delivers smoother, more professional shots in low-light.

Image processing

The Sony DSCRX10 is equipped with a masterful BIONZ X image processor engine that enables high-speed, high-precision processing of image details that are captured by the sensor. The processing chip delivers a wide ISO range that extends up to ISO 25600, so you can snap photos in incredible form all the way to the highest sensitivity setting.

Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar optics

The F2.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens offers a wide aperture that enables more light to enter the lens. The high quality optics feature multilayer lens coating to give true colour reproduction without image flare and ghosting. The precision-crafted lens also gives you excellent control over foreground and background blur, allowing you to get more creative with each shot.

Advanced aspherical lens expertise maximises portability without sacrificing quality. The high-class optics bring together four aspherical elements with one ED glass element, giving you masterful rendering and extraordinary shots.


The Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) system reduces the distance that the lens has to move when focusing on a subject. This shortens the focus time without compromising on performance, allowing you to enjoy faster, smoother focusing across the focal range.

The AF function detects and focuses on the subject's eye, giving a precise and accurate focus performance on all occasions.

WiFi connectivity

Built-in WiFi and NFC technology gives you an instant link between the Sony DSC-RX10 and your smartphone or tablet device. Just install the free PlayMemories Mobile app and you're ready to share moments without connecting to a computer. The app also allows you to remotely control your camera shutter, making it easy for you to get involved in photos.

Full HD recordings

Thanks to the Sony RX10's high-resolution sensor and the 24p True Cinema frame rate, you can enjoy outstanding creative control of your video recordings. Capture ultra smooth and visually pleasing high definition video.

The 3” OLED Tru-Finder displays real-time effects before you fire the shutter. The hi-res viewfinder can also display the exposure levels, brightness, white balance, histogram, shooting information and face recognition.

Be creative with the Sony DSC-RX10 High Performance Compact Digital Camera.
