ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens for precision imaging The large-diameter ZEISS Vario-Sonnar® T* lens offers uncompromised images across its full optical range of 24-70mm19. The wide F1.8-2.8 aperture allows for fast shutter speeds and blur-free shooting, as well as beautiful background bokeh. Flare and ghosting is also dramatically reduced thanks to the high-performance T* coating.

Exmor RS CMOS sensor for speed

The 20.1 effective MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960 fps20 super slow motion shooting21 and super high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter up to 1/32000 sec. that are too fast for human eyes to perceive. Moreover, 315-point focal plane phase detection AF provides for extraordinarily precise autofocusing and tracking performance.

High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

The updated BIONZ X image processing engine achieves even higher-speed processing performance than its predecessor22, to capture fast-moving subjects at up to 24fps23. The enhanced image- processing algorithm lets you capture more natural images, with less noise across the sensitivity range, while maintaining fine detail.

Eye AF with excellent tracking performance

High-precision Eye AF, combined with high-performance AF tracking, provides helpful assistance with portrait shooting. It's effective even when the subject is looking down and away, or when faces are backlit or in partial darkness, and it keeps the focus on moving subjects' eyes when using the AF-C setting.

Dense, widespread 315-AF-point coverage

Focus on your subject faster with 315 phase-detection AF points across a wide area of the image (approx. 65% of the frame). The Hybrid AF system combines these densely-packed, ultra-fast phase-detection focus points with the precision of contrast detection AF, for dependable focusing even when tracking small or fast-moving subjects.

Autofocus in just 0.05 sec.

Combining the speed of phase-detection AF and accuracy of contrast-detection AF, the Fast Hybrid AF system can acquire focus in as little as 0.05 sec24, to track subjects precisely and allow you to capture the moment perfectly.

Silent shooting for sensitive situations

You can mute the camera’s shutter sound by making the following camera settings: Shutter type: Electronic and Audio signals: Off. This way, you can shoot quiet scenes and noise-sensitive subjects in silence, even during continuous shooting.

Smooth-tracking continuous shooting up to 24fps

The RX100 V can perform high-speed continuous shooting at the full 20.1 MP resolution and up to 24fps23 with AF/AE tracking. In addition, the camera reduces blackout on the electronic viewfinder and LCD screen, and this reduction makes for smoother monitoring of moving subjects and easier shooting of fleeting moments.

Focus Area Registration

Pre-register, then instantly recall, a custom focusing area. Ideal for shooting sports like athletics, motorsport or tennis, or any time a subject moves regularly into an ideal composition in your frame. By simply assigning your AF area selection to a custom button you can prioritise that area, for focusing when your subject enters it, with just a single button tap.

1/32000 sec. Anti-Distortion Shutter

Up to 1/32000 sec. Anti-Distortion Shutter works to minimise image distortion caused by the rolling shutter phenomenon. The extraordinarily fast shutter speed also allows you to produce photos with background defocusing using a large aperture setting even under extremely bright conditions at a maximum of EV19.

Brilliant 4K movies

In shooting 4K (QFHD resolution: 3840 x 2160) movies with full pixel readout without pixel binning, the camera collects approx. 1.7 times as much information as is required for basic 4K movie output. This oversampling effect results in images of outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies.

AF-A mode automatically switches focus mode

In AF-A mode, the camera automatically switches between AF-S mode (Single AF: locks focus while the shutter button is pressed halfway) and AF-C mode (Continuous AF: keeps focusing on subjects while the shutter button is pressed halfway), according to such changes as sudden subject movement and brightness as detected throughout the shooting frame.

Photo Capture creates clear stills from movies

The Photo Capture function lets you select a moment from a 4K movie in playback and save it in the form of a highly detailed still image file of over 8 megapixels. Likewise, you can create a 2-megapixel still image file from a Full HD movie that has been recorded.

180˚ tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

The high-resolution 3-inch type screen with tilt capability is perfect for taking selfies and framing of otherwise impossible overhead or low-angle shots. You can use it in high/low shooting positions for greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.

Right where the hot shoe should be


I'm looking for a gift, but my Mum would never use something you have to add one, and the built in one pops up, so she will break it. The Flash needs to be built into the body... so I'll continue my search.
Great camera and amazing price. Gonna get hot this.
I paid 550 for my refurb one back in march and that was v cheap at the time.
I've had one of this from launch, paid a lot more for it than this price! It's an excellent camera and still going strong after multiple holidays and days out.

This is interesting

However I’m not too sure about the £100 not being redeemable.

Dixons are using that concession to offer everyone the discount including those that travel within the EU. From my link you can see why Dixon’s et al want your boarding card although it’s not a requirement

I’m sure I’ve read a post somewhere here that promotions from Sony are valid at airports when buying from Dixons. For clarity I will see if I can speak with Sony/promotions company on Monday.

I am certain that the purchase will not be legally classified as Duty Free but the crux of the matter is what the promotion company think

They are by their own definition, a shop that utilises the VAT exemption as a shop trading at an airport.

I’d take a stab in the dark and say that’s why they use the Dixon’s name, to create a separate entity and a smooth relationship with the VAT office.

If the receipt states vat exempt - you won’t get your cash back.

That will probably vary between the agents that approve the cash back. It would be wise to get confirmation of redemption in writing.

I would be amazed if the receipt says VAT exempt because that would require the purchaser to fill out a VAT refund form. faq

What do you hate about it. The op says it is still going strong.

I still have my first digital camera from the 90s. Still working no issues.

Obviously things have changed but it is still going.
And if cash back works £519 is an awesome price for that camera.

Sorry perhaps I should have been more clear. The expected lifespan of a digital camera is much less than film cameras. It’s really not too difficult to find that a £700 camera in today’s world would be an uneconomical repair, if repairable at all, in 3 years time.

I very rarely use the flash on my M4. I can't actually remember using it at all, as I always use it in manual mode. I hardly ever use the EVF either, which is a pop up.

If all you're after (as a gift to your mum) is a point and shoot, there are cheaper options that will do the job. Or is your mum a budding photographer who is just careless?

She is using an LX100 atm, but it’s too big to carry and she moans about not having a flash.

What I also meant besides still working well after being taking to beach's, hiking, mountain biking etc getting bounced a round a fair bit, was it's not showing its age.

It takes pretty good 4k video, the images look great. It hasn't been left behind in the dust by newer cameras.

People always go on about film cameras, they are basically a mirror, shutter, lens, calculator screen and film spool.

Yeah some of the fancier cameras have better light sensors etc but they are pretty basic compared to what go inside and the outside digital cameras these days. They have more processing power than a super computer back in the 60s or 70s.
The zoom range on this is seriously crippled compared to the latest RX100. If spending this much, stretch a bit and go for the VII or VI. If you are happy with 70mm max zoom, the m3 @£224 ticks all boxes.

I think the big brands sometimes offer surprisingly reasonably priced repairs. Nikon repaired for free my bothers d7000 just outside of warranty but the flash hot shoe got damagesd when he accidentally knocked over a tripod.

A6000 is pretty small and some of its lenses are very small. But it has allot more potential because of this...

At over £600 nor far of a second hand Sony rx1. A little different and bigger but stunning camera and way better than this..

There's a compromise for all that zoom in such a small spac though. The VI and VII are f2.8, and the VA, V, III are f1.8. Still impressive but there is a trade off.

You couldn't fit an A6000 with lens in a pocket. This is a much more compact affair.
