This new model of the Sony Cyber-shot range is a real all-rounder, boasting a versatile set of features for multimedia use. It's the fourth in the RX range with some significant advances, and plenty of features.
One of the big talking points is the significantly improved autofocus, thanks to the addition of on-sensor phase detection. What this technical jargon really means is a much faster focus, for both stills and video.
The RX10 IV is also the first in the series to use a touchscreen, which allows the user to tap the screen to focus for both stills and video.
Another improvement on RX predecessors is in continuous shooting speeds - up from 14 frames per second to 24 frames per second with continuous autofocus. If that speed is a little too full-on, it is possible to dial down to medium or low-speed shooting!
Ultra High Definition 4K promises astounding clarity for movie makers. Another well-received feature is a Photo Capture function which allows the user to effortlessly save an 8.29MP still from their UHD 4K video footage.
Connecting with friends and family to show off your stunning stills and video is easy thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless sharing imagery, when to a linked mobile device. A tablet or smartphone can also remotely control the camera or display a live view image.
