The RX100 Mark V is pretty crazy – at its full burst speed of twenty four frames per second, shooting full JPEG and Raw, I actually tended to dial it back to its ‘medium’ 10 fps burst-shooting speed. With 315 on-sensor phase-detection autofocus points, I almost felt bad for doing so – but our 128GB cards were filling up fast. And though the buffer is huge, allowing you to keep shooting even as it’s clearing, it does have to clear completely (a slow process) before you can switch from photo to video mode. And given the variety of activities at Sony’s shooting experience, we wanted to shoot both.
Rishi and I have enjoyed a hands-on shooting experience with the RX100 V, and have a variety of straight-out-of-camera samples for you to peruse (no Raw support yet). We’re looking forward to uploading some more samples in the near future. This camera may well be the only serious photographic tool one would ever need. To get an idea of if the Mark V is right for you, take a look through our preliminary gallery.
Note: This is a preliminary gallery that we will be adding to. All images were taken with default parameters, including default sharpening and auto white balance. All images are straight-out-of-camera JPEGs with accompanying Raw files.
