A fantastic pocket-friendly camera that gives you a huge amount of power in a teeny tiny package. There’s a hell of a lot to love about the Sony RX100 VII - but the price will be a big stumbling block for many.
Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 VII Digital Compact Camera

The RX100 VII is powered by a newly developed 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and the latest-generation BIONZ X image processor. This combination delivers new levels of autofocus performance and achieves speed breakthroughs that have previously only been seen on the Alpha 9. The flexibility of shooting is ensured by a ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm F2.8-4.5 high magnification zoom lens, making the RX100 VII a versatile choice for all types of shooting scenarios and users, from photo enthusiasts to professionals.
New Standard for AF Performance in a Compact Camera
The RX100 VII offers a world-leading 357 focal-plane phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast-detection AF points. In addition, thanks to a newly optimised lens drive control, world’s fastest 0.02 sec AF acquisition time is realised. A major leap in AF/AE tracking performance during continuous shooting means the camera performs AF/AE calculations up to 60 times per second and captures fast-moving action at 20fps with AF/AE tracking, ensuring that each moment is shot with swift and accurate focus.
In addition, the image sensor realises blackout-free shooting for a completely live view, even when continuous shooting at 20fps; the same experience as the Alpha 9. The RX100 VII also debuts a new drive mode, Single Burst Shooting, for capturing the perfect high-speed shot at up to 90fps in JPEG/RAW format utilising the anti-distortion shutter. ‘Single Burst Shooting’ allows the photographer to frame fast-moving action and shoot as if taking a single shot but the camera will actually deliver 7 still images, taken at 90fps, 60fps or 30fps, so the user can select the perfect moment.
For the first time in a compact camera, the RX100 VII introduces advanced ‘Real-time Tracking’ and ‘Real-time Eye AF’ capabilities. ‘Real-time Tracking’ utilises Sony’s latest algorithm including artificial intelligence-based object recognition to ensure that subjects can be captured with excellent accuracy, even via the touch panel on the rear screen. ‘Real-time Eye AF’, the latest version of Sony’s acclaimed Eye AF technology, employs AI-based object recognition to detect and process eye data in real-time, resulting in improved accuracy, speed and tracking the performance of Eye AF for both humans and animals and allows the photographer to concentrate exclusively on composition.
The compact and lightweight characteristics of the RX100 VII (approx. 302g / 102mm x 58mm x 43mm) means it can always be carried around and can be mounted in places that larger cameras cannot. But its small factor belies a multitude of pro-level movie-making capabilities perfect for on-the-go shooting such as vlogging:
- 4K in-body movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning in high bit rate XAVCS™
- Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF for video
- 4K Active SteadyShot that is 8x more effective than 4K Standard SteadyShot
- Integrated Microphone input
- Hybrid Log-Gamma (HDR) / S-Gamut3.Cine / S-Log3, S-Gamut3/S-Log3
- Compatibility with ‘Movie Edit add-on’ from the ‘Imaging EdgeTM’ mobile application for movie stabilisation and editing
- Vertical-position data recording for movies
- Interval Shooting for stunning time-lapse videos
- Super Slow Motion recording at up to 1000fps
- 180-degree flip screen for ease-of-use whilst vlogging
From the absence of expected features to its lofty price tag, there's plenty to irk those drawn to the likes of the RX100 VII. And yet, with its strong image quality, detailed 4K videos and a class-leading AF performance, the latest addition to the RX100 line still manages to be one of the most...
The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII has a lot to offer and improves on the RX100 VI , making this an excellent camera. With a high-quality 8.3x optical zoom lens that impressed us on the RX100 VI , but with new features, and high-speed shooting, as well as a microphone socket on the side, what's not to...
About as perfect as small-scale, high-end compact cameras get. If you can afford one, that is, as this has never been a budget series.
The RX100 VII could be a great choice for travellers with strict weight requirements - and deep pockets
The latest iteration of Sony’s popular RX100 series features a redesigned sensor, upgrades autofocusing system, faster response times and a microphone port.
The RX100 VII is the most capable pocket camera currently on the market. It offers a versatile zoom range and an industry-leading AF implementation, as well as good image quality and smooth, stabilized 4K. However the small maximum aperture of the lens does limit the camera's use in dim light.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII point-and-shoot is a modest update to the RX100 VI, offering better autofocus and video stabilization for a bit more money.
The Sony RX100 VII is a compact and versatile product perfect for both the casual and professional photographer. It has the world's fastest auto-focus of 0.02 seconds, which makes it lightning fast at locking onto subjects.
The Sony RX100 VII is a high-end compact designed for travel, action, video and vlogging. Successor to the RX100 VI, it shares the same 24-200mm f2.8-4.5 zoom as well as essentially the same body with a touch-screen that can angle up to face you and small but detailed viewfinder that pops up and...
Following extensive research I opted to buy this camera. Having used it on my daily hikes for two weeks, I’m really pleased with both the functionality and quality. My usual camera is a canon full frame but this little gem makes it so much easier when taking casual hikes and need to capture some...
Excellent little camera, a bit pricey but worth it. Best compact camera on the market in my opinion.
Probably the best compact camera on the market today albeit at a premium price.As a fan of the RX100 series having owned mk1 and mk4 and now the 7,it amazes me how Sony manages to improve and add features at each iteration to keep us RX100 fans interested.I fine now I use my DSLR cameras less and...
I have been surprised how good the image quality is from the smaller sensor in the camera compared to my apps-c camera. The camera is small and light enough Ito be taken with me when I might leave my A77 at home. The lens is great, the auto focusing brilliant.
I've owned a RX100 V for some time and absolutely loved the quality of the images and the options available however it always seemed the zoom range was a bit limited and the lack of a microphone input was a real pain when shooting video.
Fits easily into a pocket but delivers outstanding quality images. The perfect camera for travel and everyday use with a great zoom and pretty good macro function. Image quality is very good allowing even more cropping opportunities. The auto function is reliable delivering great images easily.
Having traded in the earlier model Mark iv I have thoroughly enjoyed essentially the same overall sized camera, which is so easy to carry around everywhere, but with all the additional extra features of the much more expensive and bulky DSLR or mirrorless models: eye focusing system and extended zoom range for just two features that I use regularly. Shame I didn't receive it within the stated time-frame from the supplier though, they sent another model, so it took over a week to arrive!?
A super little camera that takes fantastic images. So much has been packed into a tiny body. This was bought to take pictures at concerts but I will be using it for all kinds of photography, once we are allowed to go out and shoot!
