First, for Sony’s RX10 series of cameras, the new Sony RX10 IV model features a Fast Hybrid AF system that combines the respective advantages of 315 phase-detection AF points covering approximately 65% of the sensor and contrast-detection AF to ultimately enable the camera to lock focus in as little as 0.03 seconds, which give to it the fastest autofocus capabilities. The Sony RX10 IV also offers continuous high-speed shooting at up to 24 fps with full AF/AE tracking and it has an impressive buffer limit of up to 249 images.
The Sony RX10 IV also has a high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter with a maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32000 second, which reduces the ‘rolling shutter’ effect, experienced often while shooting fast moving subjects. The RX10 IV is capable of shooting videos at 4K.
The 24-600mm ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens on the Sony RX10 IV camera features a large maximum aperture of F2.4-F4.0, which helps in achieving an outstanding image quality throughout the entire zoom range and this goes all the way up to even ultra-telephoto. The lens also has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization that helps to reduce camera shake and image blur.
