Sony Cyber-shot RX 100 IV Digital Camera The Digital Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Camera is an advanced, flexible point-and-shoot providing a large 20.1-MPl 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor to deliver high-resolution still images along with 4K video. This sensor's engineering makes use of a stacked back-illuminated layout to improve clarity and picture quality when working in poorly-lit environments as well as to increase sensitivity to a native ISO 12,800. By totally placing the camera photodiodes over the sensor's processing structure, the light-collecting capability of the Exmor RS CMOS sensor is additionally improved over prior back-illuminated devices and faster image processing abilities are also added . 16 frames per second of continuous photography is made available as well as UHD 4K movie capture with the availability of Super Slow Motion frame rates up to 960 frames per second. Also the resulting performance of the BIONZ X image processor helps to provide images with smooth tonal gradations and quality.

To make ultra-high definition video captures realizable, short 4K clips of up to five minutes may be captured with out line skipping or pixel binning along with minimal moiré and visual aliasing. The DSC-RX100 IV Digital Camera is PAL and NTSC switchable, while making use of the XAVC S format to maximize high-bitrate capturing up to 100 Mbps for pro-quality video. When recording, creative potential is additionally extended with the option to acquire Super Slow Motion High Frame Rate movies up to 40x slower than in real time. These slow motion clips are captured at 240 fps, 480 fps or 960 fps and then may be played back at 1920 x 1080, in 24p, 30p or 60p when the camera is set for NTSC. For PAL, slow motion clips are captured at 250 fps, 500 fps or 1000 fps and then may be replayed at 1920 x 1080, in either 25p or 50p. While recording at video resolutions less than 4K, such as HD Full 1920 x 1080p, video clips as long as 29 minutes in length may be saved.
