A Review of the Sony RX100 VII Camera

Sony's RX100 line of cameras is well known for packing a ton of technology and great image quality into a very tiny package, making them an intriguing option for photographers and videographers looking for something they can carry everywhere. This excellent video review takes a look at the latest version to help you decide if it is right for you. 

Coming to you from DP Review, this great video review takes a look at the Sony RX100 VII. The RX100 VII is the latest entry into Sony's compact camera series, and it brings a lot of features that should make power users happy. Such specs include a 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 lens, a pop-up electronic viewfinder, 4K 30p video, 20 fps continuous shooting with no viewfinder blackout, 90 fps single burst shooting, and perhaps most interesting, all the latest autofocus capabilities found in more powerful cameras like the a7 series and the a9. While it is certainly a rather expensive camera for the compact category, given its capabilities and extreme level of versatility, it is a highly intriguing option for any photographer or videographer looking to have a lot of power in their pocket. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

Money no object, the RX100 line is probably the best photo camera you can fit in your pocket. Even so it cant compete with larger (not pocketable) APS-C/FF cameras. Good for when you don't want to carry something large and noticeable around.

It's pricey for sure, but it has some impressive specs. And, being able to slip it into a pocket is a big plus! I'm certainly thinking of purchasing one to add to the kit!

Oh come on now. Many of us are members of DPreview and have read the review. It’s like one newspaper pinching an article from another. Write your own review - or please don’t bother.

Many, but not all. I appreciate them bringing it here for us to read. Otherwise, I might have missed it.

Works in both directions, with DPR also "pinching" articles from PetaPixel on occasion.

I raise the point to illustrate my constant gripe that Fstoppers is becoming increasingly sloppy in its journalistic principles.

Had an older version. Loved it until the lens stopped retracting.

Have an rx100II as backup, while travelling. Love that little camera...
