Product information
Top features:

- Compact and precise so you can capture the images you want anytime 

- Get the shot you're after with the 75 mm TFT LCD screen 

- Versatile shooting with 8.8-25.7 mm lens 

- Functional features for limitless possibilities 

Compact and precise

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV High Performance Compact Camera is small enough to fit in your pocket, but lets you capture every moment with the utmost clarity. The CMOS Exmor RS sensor is smaller and faster than previous generations, allowing you to shoot faster with superior detail.

You'll capture detailed and rich colours thanks to a wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar lens with a large f/1.8 maximum aperture. Whether you're going for wide-angle architectural shots, portraits or subjects in motion, this lens will help you achieve the results you want.

BIONZ X image processing helps to bring out every texture in your photos, even when you're shooting fast-moving subjects.

Get the shot you're after

With its 75 mm (3”) TFT LCD screen, the Sony RX100IV is extremely versatile – tilt the display to grab easy selfies or to capture images from difficult angles – shoot comfortably over crowds or from very low vantage points.

The OLED Tru-Finder offers a bright view on every subject with a hi-res SVGA EL screen – image clarity extends to the very edges of the frame to counteract blurring, allowing you to compose your photos more accurately.

ZEISS T is a proprietary technology that minimises flare and reflection in the viewfinder – even when you're shooting in bright sunlight. An eye sensor enables you to immediately shift between the viewfinder and LCD screen so that you can fine tune each composition. You can even retract the viewfinder into the camera body to preserve its streamlined design.

Versatile shooting

The RX100 IV lets you shoot both closer and wider with its 8.8-25.7 mm lens which is the equivalent to a 24-70 mm lens on a 35 mm system, allowing you to capture everything from landscapes to portraits.

Thanks to its f/1.8 aperture, you'll be able to capture detailed photographs in all lighting conditions – even if it's dark. Achieve stunning depth of field effects and even try your hand at creative blurring techniques.

Contrast is kept high through a design incorporating nine aspherical lenses that include exclusive glass-moulded lens elements. Even when you're zooming, distortion is kept at bay. Each image offers exceptional edge-to-edge quality without adding unnecessary bulk to the camera.

Functional features

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 M4 can capture sharp, detailed Ultra 4k movies in professional XAVCS format. Enjoy minimal compression noise, even for rapidly-moving subjects, and even shoot at high 120p frame rates to achieve awesome slow motion effects.

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV Digital Camera features built-in WiFi so that you can easily share your photos online or save them to cloud services, while one touch NFC makes it easy to pair with your devices.

Solid construction.
Ease of use.
Good image quality.
Flask mechanism is a little overly complex and a little flimsy.

No touch screen.

A little heavy.
