Whether you're a professional photographer in need of a truly pocketable, high-performance compact camera to take on the go, or simply wish to expand the creative horizons of your point and shoot photography, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 camera kit with two 16GB memory cards is for you. With a large 1" Exmor CMOS sensor and ultra-bright F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 3.6x zoom, you'll enjoy tack-sharp images and beautifully defocused backgrounds. An intuitive control ring built into the lens grants easy access to aperture settings and more. With Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual (P/A/S/M) modes, get SLR-like handling for complete creative control—an incredibly effective iAuto mode is perfect for beginners. Shoot in nearly any light with natural results thanks to sensitivity that ranges from ISO 125 to 6400, and save pictures as compact JPEG files, high-resolution RAW files, or both at once.
Massive 20.2MP Exmor 1” CMOS Image Sensor: The massive 20.2 MP Exmor 1” CMOS sensor captures ultra-high definition images that take full advantage of the camera’s sharp Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T lens. The sensor enables advanced column A/D processing that reduces noise levels, resulting in astonishing low light images with incredible smooth and clear details.
Capture JPEG files, RAW files, or both: The DSC-RX100 saves pictures as compact JPEG files and/or ultra-high quality RAW files. RAW files save images prior to de-mosaicing, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC.
Bright F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 3.6x zoom: Newly developed large-diameter F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens delivers refined background defocusing - bokeh. A premium multi-layered T coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection.
Full HD 1080/60p: Record crystal clear movies at the highest resolution available with capabilities for 60p in 1080. This provides stunning, fast motion video with less distortion for playback on your HD TV. With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.
P/A/S/M modes for video and stills: Enjoy a full range of controls for video and still shooting from the beginner's iAUTO mode to P/A/S/M: Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual. On-screen prompts help you refine your skills, build your confidence and exercise greater creative control.
Low-light ISO 6400 sensitivity: Incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail, made possible by the low-noise Exmor CMOS image sensor and refined BIONZ image processor.
