The Sony Cyber-Shot RX10 IV is an advanced, compact point and shoot camera and update to the Sony Cyber-Shot RX10 III. This is also the first camera in Sony’s RX10 series to include an on-sensor phase-detection autofocus system and a touch screen.

 20.1MP 1.0-inch Stacked Sensor and BIONZ X Processor

Utilizing an advanced stacked structure with an integrated DRAM chip, the 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor of the RX10 IV is able to deliver outstanding image quality at up to ISO 12800 with incredibly fast performance. This sensor stacks the pixel area, a high-speed signal processing circuit, and memory in order to increase data throughput by over five times and deliver features such as 40x super slow motion, an Anti-Distortion shutter, UHD 4K video, and has focal-plane phase-detection AF points for faster, more precise focusing. You also get continuous shooting at up to 24 fps with AF and AE at up to ISO 12,800, and an expanded buffer lets you shoot bursts of up to 249 JPEGs or 112 RAW images.

Fast Hybrid AF System with 315 Phase-Detection Points

The RX10 IV is equipped with an on-sensor phase-detection AF system that will dramatically improve autofocus speed for both stills and video. This hybrid system boasts 315 phase-detection points and a 25-area contrast-detection system, so it can handle any situation you throw at it. This camera can lock onto subjects within 0.03 seconds and can track subjects when shooting at 24 fps. You can also allow the camera to automatically switch modes for added ease of use.

Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 25x Zoom Lens

Pairing with the imaging assets, the RX10 IV is distinctly characterized by its expansive 25x zoom lens. This Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens spans a 24-600mm equivalent focal length range and has a variable maximum aperture of f/2.4-4 for adept performance from wide-angle to super telephoto. The lens’s thirteen-group/eighteen-element design includes six aspherical elements and eight extra-low dispersion elements to eliminate aberrations throughout its massive zoom range. Additionally, the esteemed Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Complementing the lens' reach, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization also helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 4.5 stops for sharper handheld shooting. The lens also sports a rounded nine-blade diaphragm to produce smooth bokeh, and, despite its long reach can also focus as closely as 1.2" with a 0.42x maximum magnification for working with close-up subjects.


Integrated EVF and Tiltable Touchscreen LCD

The bright 2.36m-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF provides users a pleasant traditional shooting experience, while the new 3.0-inch 1.44m-dot touchscreen LCD gives you intuitive control over an array of camera features. The LCD also tilts 109° upward and 41° downward, giving tripod and arm’s-length shooters plenty of options.


UHD 4K Video Recording

 The RX10 IV can capture UHD 4K video at 30/24 fps in XAVC S format, using full-pixel readout with no line skipping or pixel binning. The increased data throughput from the integrated DRAM chip also enables extremely fast Full HD 1080p capture at up to 960 fps. S-Log2 and S-Log3 gammas are available to advanced users, providing 8-bit, 4:2:0 sampling internally recorded. For more demanding shoots, the RX10 IV offers Micro-HDMI output for 4:2:2 uncompressed video to an external recorder. A Photo Capture function is built directly into the camera, allowing shooters to quickly save an 8.29MP still from their UHD 4K movies. Full HD can also benefit from this feature, where users will be able to pull a 2MP still. Additionally, the camera is NTSC/PAL switchable, making it usable around the world.


High-Quality Build 

The RX10 IV boasts a durable magnesium alloy build, and it’s weather-sealed so that you can work in adverse conditions without fear. The manually-operated aperture ring permits intuitive tactile control over exposure settings, and the ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent performance to suit video applications. Manual focus and zoom rings are also incorporated in the lens' design. Both an external microphone jack and a headphone jack are available for using optional external mics and monitoring your audio in real time.


Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth permit wirelessly sharing imagery to a linked mobile device for instant sharing online, and also allows a smartphone or tablet to remotely control the camera or display a live view image. Mobile devices can be paired via NFC or via a QR code displayed on the camera for non NFC-enabled phones or tablets.



The RX10 IV records images/video to SDHC/XC memory cards (not included) and is powered by the same NP-FW50 rechargeable lithium battery that offers approximately 400 shots per charge when working with the LCD monitor, or 370 shots per charge when working with the EVF. A range of customizable function buttons can be assigned to any one of 58 different custom functions. A top LCD panel can be used to quickly check key exposure and other settings.

High Frame Rate and Slow Motion Shooting

 Speed is a huge advantage of the RX10 IV, and video users will benefit from advanced High Frame Rate shooting and super slow motion. In Full HD, shooters will have access to a standard 120 fps setting that will enable outstanding slow motion when placed in editing software. In addition to this, the camera also offers a dedicated HFR mode, which will boost the cameras frame rate to up to 960 fps. Videographers will have the option of recording in Quality Priority and Shoot Time Priority modes for approximately twice as long with the RX10 IV compared to its predecessor. This results in about 7 seconds of recording in Shoot Time Priority at the 240 fps setting. The camera will output a Full HD file from slightly lower resolutions in order to produce high quality images at all frame rates. Additionally, an end trigger mode enables users to record 4 or 6 seconds before the record button is pressed.

Other Camera Features

  • Zoom Assist can be assigned to a custom function button and used to automatically zoom out from the scene in order to re-locate a subject, and then released to quickly return to the zoomed-in position.
  • A Silent Shooting mode makes use of an electronic shutter function for completely silent performance that is ideal for photographing in noise-sensitive areas. This electronic shutter also permits working with shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 sec for photographing in bright conditions.
  • White balance adjustment can be finely controlled using detailed sliders that span the amber-blue and magenta-green axes for more precise control over how color tones appear in various lighting conditions.
  • Scene Selection: Portrait, Sports Action, Macro, Landscape, Sunset, Night Scene, Handheld Twilight, Night Portrait, and Anti Motion Blur.
  • Picture Effect: Toy Camera, Pop Color, Posterization, Retro Photo, Soft High-Key, Partial Color, High Contrast Mono, Soft Focus, HDR Painting, Richtone Monochrome, Miniature, Watercolor, and Illustration.
  • Creative Style: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Clear, Deep, Light, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset, Night Scene, Autumn Leaves, Black & White, Sepia, and Style Box.
  •   Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
