Sony has announced a new high-end compact camera called Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII. Externally, the novelty is almost identical to the RX100 VI, released last year, with the exception of the new 3.5 mm MIC port.
The new camera is especially attractive for the vlogery, and includes tracking of the subject in real time and auto focus on the eyes. It also supports a new burst mode, which makes seven images at speeds up to 90 fps with a single touch of the shutter.
Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII has a 1-inch matrix Exmos CMOS sensor with 20-mm stack. Lens from RX100 VII is the same as last year’s model: it’s a 24-200 mm zoom lens with aperture of f/2,8-4,5, providing up to 8.3-fold optical zoom. The system of automatic focusing includes 357 phase contrast points and 425 points. Supports recording of 4K video at 30 fps or Full HD at up to 120 fps.
Storage material can be used memory cards SD/ SDHC/SDXC and Memory Stick Pro Duo. Complete battery provides the ability to shoot up to 260 photos. Also worth noting is support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and NFC, a USB 2.0 and HDMI.
Selling Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII will appear in August of this year. The cost of new items is $1200. By the end of this year, the manufacturer will release a set of “Shooting Grip Kit” that includes the camera, manual lever (with built-in active video and photo gates), bracket for microphone (microphone sold separately) and two batteries. The cost of this kit is $1300.
