Product Details

Sony RX100 Black CyberShot Digital Camera - DSCRX100B

Exquisite image quality and high-end handling are available for the first time in a truly compact camera. The Cyber-shot® RX100 features a massive 1" sensor and large-aperture F1.8 lens with integrated control ring for intuitive access to settings. Combined with supreme ISO sensitivity, you'll enjoy richly-detailed results with remarkably low noise even in challenging lighting conditions. Whether you're a pro looking for a premium compact camera, or simply want to take your point and shoot photography to the next level, the RX100 offers excellent quality and SLR-like operation in a sophisticated, pocket-friendly package you'll want to take everywhere.

Massive 20.2MP Image Sensor Compared to the average point and shoot 1/2.3" sensor size, the RX100 boasts a large, specially developed 1" Exmor CMOS sensor to capture more light from your scene and reproduce every stunning detail with greater fidelity. Original dual noise reduction and column A/D conversion further decrease noise to ensure smooth, clear reproduction—even in low-light settings. "No photos this good have ever come from a camera this small." — The New York Times

Optimal Optics Legendary Carl Zeiss® optics and unrivalled Sony imaging technology come together in the RX100's high-performance Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens. Despite its compact dimensions, this extraordinary lens offers supremely accurate performance, 3.6x optical zoom and an enormous F1.8 circular aperture for gorgeous defocused backgrounds. An integrated control ring puts easy, intuitive access to camera settings right at your fingertips. Zeiss

Wide Range ISO Sensitivity Shoot in nearly any light with natural results thanks to sensitivity that ranges from ISO 125 to 6400. Let the Auto ISO mode automatically determine the most appropriate setting, or manually expand sensitivity for greater control. The bright lens, extra large sensor and precision image processing work together to ensure remarkably low noise in a wide range of lighting conditions.

Complete Creative Control Get SLR-like handling with a full range of controls for video and still shooting-from Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual (P/A/S/M) modes for more advanced photographers, to an incredibly effective iAuto mode perfect for beginners. On-screen prompts help you refine your skills, build confidence and exercise greater creative control.

RAW Image Capture Save pictures as compact JPEG files, ultra high-quality RAW files, or both at once. When shooting in RAW format, images are saved prior to de-mosaicing or applying white balance, sharpness and color enhancement for maximum latitude when enhancing images on your PC.

Gorgeous Full HD Video Create amazingly clear, extra-smooth movies with Full HD 1080/60p video capture in the AVCHD Ver. 2.0 (progressive) format at a high frame rate of 60 fps. You can even record fast-moving subjects and dark settings with astonishing clarity thanks to the large image sensor and high-performance lens.


  • Massive 20.2MP Exmor® 1” CMOS Image Sensor The massive 20.2MP 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.2 With dual record of stills and movies, you can shoot both at the same time.

I have owned this camera for several months now. I got the camera for personal use and for work. Most of my initial shots were of work stuff so I was not immediately impressed. However, once I started using it for personal use the quality of the camera was stunning. Size Matters - this large sensor is capable of impressive image captures that the normal point & shoot can't compete with. Recently I was at a family gathering where the other family members had point & shoots and one DSLR. I compared my shots to others taken of the same subject with the other cameras including a Canon Rebel and couldn't believe the difference. This little Sony far out-shined the APS-C sensor of Canon and simply blew away the point & shoots. The detail was phenominal, the contrast and color saturation were incredible. Sony has hit a home run with this camera. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for something more than just the ordinary point & shoot.

This was a replacement / upgrade from Nikon S53c and although it's specs are impressive, it's handling is difficult thus all the aftermarket grips, etc. Macro mode has fixed f stop and only works @ wide angle. Very fast write times considering the large files. This camera is pocketable, but reinforce your pockets! Why no magnesium ergo shape for this price? Fast lens at this size IF YOU shoot only wide angle. Lack of decent printed manual is cheesy marketing.

unimpressed thus far


from Undisclosed

I honestly hope to be changing my review at some point, but for now I'm just not a happy camper with this camera. I purchased it after significant online research as well as recommendations from several employees at my local camera store as an alternative for a concert camera, as it is impossible to get my full frame in anywhere. Two concerts so far, one outdoors, one indoors, one up close, one nosebleed seats and nothing worth anything from either show. I used some posted settings specifically for taking concert images with this model, and even pushed it to Auto at some point hoping to capture something worthwhile. I do not disregard that this could all be operator error, because I have gotten quite attached to my nicely weighted DSLR and its viewfinder; but point-and-shoots are consumer cameras so this would seem unlikely. Just to try and convince myself further I have taken some inside and outside shots but am simply not as impressed as the hundred or so others that have rated this camera as one of the best point-and-shoot that produces RAW files.


Terrific hardware, so-so software


from San Francisco, CA 94105, USA

I love the image quality from this camera but still struggle with the software and usability. From the software perspective, Canon trumps Sony hands down. Nevertheless, the RX100's combination of pocketability and superior optics are worth the ongoing hassle of fighting with the disappointing software. One issue for me is all the cheesy consumer features that are more appropriate for a $100-200 point-and-shoot. Since the pricey RX100 appeals to many skilled amateurs and pros, it would be great if you could turn off the consumers features and operate the camera in a simplified "pro" mode. However, a small, lightweight form factor and high quality optics were paramount for me, so I don't regret the purchase. It's just that Sony did such a terrific job with hardware that the software fail is more painful than it might be in a more ordinary camera.


Excellent pocket camera.


from Dadar, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

I am 60 yrs old and I have Nikon DSLR professional camera with heavy zoom lens,on outdoor photography.I have to carry this camera with heavy accessories.After a period of two or three hours my left hand were started paining. I was searching for this RX 100 type option since many days, and one day I had came across RX 100 in Better Photography magazine.I read the complete article and came to know this is it,immediately I purshased it .i.e.on 12 February 2012,I got excellent results and I am using it regularly for outdoor as well as indoor photography,very good invention by SONY,keeping aside my Nikon DSLR. On one fine day.i.e.on 20 February 2015, my RX 100,stops working properly i.e. LCD shops showing images.I rushed to SONY Service outlet and shown the camera.Keeping in mind that they will charge for repairs, being third year from purchase,and surprised to know that it was in warranty,And still the warranty is valid up to March 2016. Hats off to SONY!! And my camera has been serviced properly and again my RX 100 is giving excellent results.Thanks to SONY!!


Another Wow! only possible from Sony.


from 10017

The kind of product that only Sony could develop. The lens, the sensor, the displays, and the miniaturisation -- all Sony prime talents -- are all combined to produce the finest pocket camera ever. The feel and heft, the appearance and location of controls and the smart operation are an object of wonder and desire. I smile every time I take it out and again at the results it produces.


Love this little camera.


from Undisclosed

Wanted a capable pocket camera, and this one exceeds my expectations.


Poorly designed Filter Adaptor & Screen Protector


from 90068

The RX100-II camera is superb! So I was quite surprised at how poorly designed and inadequate the filter adaptor and Screen Protector sheet both are. The filter adaptor (that the Polarizer filter, etc., screws into) and screen protector are just made of sticky tape, that one needs to press against the camera lens/screen to stick on. The first day I used them, which happened to be in very high humidity, both fell off within a few hours, and the "stick" completely went away, and I could no longer use them to mount on the camera--thus had to hand-hold the filters to the lens every time I needed them. When I called SONY, they just said that there was no warranty on these two products--I would just have to order and pay for them again. With such a great camera, I just cannot believe that the filter adaptor does not screw on--and they are just using a sticky tape material which does not hold up, especially in "weather" and over the long term--and then when they quickly fall apart, SONY just expects you to keep buying new ones.... SONY you need a new design for the filter adaptor (VFA-49R1) and Screen Protector (PCK-LM15)!!!!


Great Small Camera


from Austin, TX

Great camera. Use it for family get togethers and outdoor shots. Wish it was slightly smaller, someone mentioned a waterproof case that would be wonderful. Wonderful resolution.

Really, Sony? Are you kidding?


from Undisclosed

This camera takes great pictures and has many amazing features... but how could Sony not pay attention to detail? Seriously! You can't adjust the timer for more than 10 seconds! Sometimes I want to take a picture of myself someplace; I set the timer, and I can't make it into the frame in 10 seconds. Why isn't an adjustable timer up to 30 seconds a STANDARD FEATURE? This seems like a no-brainer that Sony completely missed. But meanwhile, you can use 100 different HDR settings... great... too bad you can't use the timer in HDR! WHAT THE HECK!? How hard is it to let the camera use the timer in HDR? Canon has had that ability for YEARS! Another problem: the so-called intelligent auto setting won't default to the "vivid/warm" color setting. Every time you turn off the camera, and turn it back on, you have to re-adjust to turn up or down the warmth/vividness settings. UGH! I'm so disappointed with these features... mostly because it means I have to carry two cameras now, my old Canon and my new Sony, because I sure as heck can't use the worthless timer on the Sony... What a pain in the butt. Thanks Sony.

Sharpness, dynamism, depth



I had it a few days ago and I took more than 300 shots...this is what I was searching...I had more experiences by widely shooting and can be said it is fantastic and easy to use. aparatus. I always use as manuel except the focus and I saw that the image qualities breaken rules even it's small 1^" sensor. The dynamic range is wide and the structural forms are just as origin. No doubt at the pictures colors particularly the wb adjaustement is correcty and you can adjust simply the better...Now I am planning to have a DSC-RX 1R maybe I can wait till it's new version with interchangeble lense capacity. I suggest and recommend frankly to all photo lovers to have one from RX-100 portable, easy to use and amazing pictures you can take.. Even with pe-programmed scenes...

Best pocket DSLR on the market!


from Oregon

I recently purchased my rx-100 because I was tired of lugging around a camera bag everywhere. After seeing many reviews and awards this camera received, I knew I needed one. I can't believe how awesome my photos turn out. I bought an alpha a77 last week and the pics from my rx-100 are just as good if not better! If you want dslr quality pics in a point and shoot, the rx-100 is for you!
