Sony has expanded its popular Cyber-shot RX100 series of premium compact cameras with the launch of the RX100 VI (model DSC-RX100M6) in the UAE. The firm has also announced the VCT-SGR1, a versatile and compact new Shooting Grip best suited for its RX0 and RX100 series of cameras.
The RX100 VI is the first of all the RX100 models to include a high magnification zoom lens, as it packs in ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T24-200mm F2.8 – F4.5 lens. Priced at AED 4,899, the new RX100 VI camera is available at KANSAS – Sony Camera Store Partner at Mall of Emirates, Sony Centre in The Dubai Mall and across all key retail outlets in the UAE.
This latest premium compact camera combines portability, flexibility, fast responsiveness and professional image quality making it an ideal choice for capturing daily life, cityscapes, portraiture, sports including wildlife, said the firm.
Inside the camera is a one-inch stacked 20.1 MP Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and an upgraded BIONZ X image processor with a front-end LSI that maximises processing speed and optimises image quality in all shooting environments.
The new RX100 VI model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that ultimately allows the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.03 seconds.
The RX100 VI offers continuous high-speed shooting at up to 24 fps with full AF/AE tracking, with buffer limit of up to 233 images. The display lag of the EVF has been substantially reduced compared to prior models.
The RX100 VI also has a high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32000 second) that reduces the “rolling shutter” effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects, and can shoot completely silently in all modes, including continuous high-speed shooting, when electronic shutter is engaged. A mechanical shutter mode is also available as well if required by the user.
