Product Details

Sony RX100 V 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Compact Camera - DSC-RX100M5

Take a powerful camera with you virtually anywhere with this Sony RX100 V compact digital camera. It incorporates a 20.1-megapixel Exmor sensor that's large enough to handle advanced imaging and combines with the BIONZ X digital image processor to create vivid colors and contrast. In addition, the integrated 24-70mm lens incorporates bright optics that ensure light gets to the sensor rapidly for quick responses and impactful photos. Super-fast autofocus from this lightweight Sony camera hones in on your subject for impressive results during sports events or when taking photos of wildlife.

When you want to shoot video of your vacation or set up a scene, this Sony compact camera has a 4K movie mode, which allows you to take extremely detailed videos and take full advantage of the larger sensor to enjoy relatively shallow depth of field to make subject stand out. A retractable electronic viewfinder lets you preview stills and video when needed, and then it goes back into the camera when it's not. The ultraquiet shutter in this Sony RX100 V compact digital camera reduces noise substantially when selected for near-silent shooting.


  • ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar® T* lens for rich depiction
    Large-diameter ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar® T* 24-70 mm15 F1.8-2.8 lens allows wide-angle shooting out to 24 mm. Maximum aperture of F2.8 brightness at the telephoto end enables shooting images without camera shake and subject motion blur and capturing photos (such as portraits) with beautiful background bokeh. ZEISS® T* Coating reduces ghost and flare.
  • Exmor RS® CMOS sensor for speed
    The newly developed 20.1 effective MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960fps16 super slow motion shooting17 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.
  • BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture
    As the engine that powers the conversion of light captured by an image sensor into digital images, the BIONZ X™ image processing engine is as essential to the RX100 V as its lens and sensor. High-speed BIONZ X™ enables this camera to shoot photos and movies with truer, more natural details, richer tonal gradations and lower noise.
  • Smooth-tracking continuous shooting up to 24fps20
    The RX100 V can perform high-speed continuous shooting at higher than 20 MP resolution and up to 24fps20 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.
  • Autofocus in just 0.05 sec.19
    Combining the superior speed of phase-detection AF and the outstanding accuracy of contrast-detection AF, the Fast Hybrid AF system featured for the first time in an RX100 series camera focuses in just 0.05 sec.19 in order to track and capture subjects precisely at the climactic moments you’re aiming for.
  • Dense, widespread 315-AF-point coverage
    The world’s most18 focal-plane phase-detection AF points (315) cover approx. 65% of the entire image area of the newly developed image sensor. This makes AF coverage widespread and dense enough to quickly capture subjects, such as small or fast-moving ones that are otherwise difficult to focus on, throughout the image area.
  • 1/32000 s Anti-Distortion Shutter
    Up to 1/32000 s Anti-Distortion Shutter works to minimize 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 EV1921.
  • 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.
  • 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
    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.
  • Introducing Fast Hybrid AF for movies to the RX100 series
    Fast Hybrid AF keeps images sharp and clear during the shooting of high-resolution 4K movies22 23, thanks to the system’s focal plane phase-detection AF sensor that enables accurate focusing and tracking performance.
  • Brilliant 4K movies
    In shooting 4K22 23 (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.
  • Up to double-length24 960fps16 super slow motion17
    Using the mode dial to select HFR, it’s easy to create super slow motion movies17 containing split-second moments of action. Choose shooting frame rates of 960/1000fps, 480/500fps, or 240/250fps (NTSC/PAL)25, depending on speed of a moving subject. Image quality is nearly Full HD at 240/250fps, and HD at 480/500fps in Quality Priority mode. The end trigger mode also enables you to record 4 or 6 seconds before the MOVIE button is pressed, letting you capture the decisive moment.
  • Control ring for advanced photography
    Convenient lens-mounted control ring allows you to operate pro-style manual control such as selecting shutter speed, aperture, and more for added creative command — another feature making this camera an ideal choice for serious photographers.
  • Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ shows what you aim for
    The retractable Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder’s sharp resolution equivalent to 2359k dots, bright self-illumination and high contrast are excellent for previewing shots and adjusting settings accordingly. EVF eyepiece optics are treated with ZEISS® T* Coating to reduce unwanted reflections and ensure corner-to-corner visibility.
  • Shoot almost anywhere with wide ISO sensitivity
    Sensitivity extends right up to ISO 12800, for crisper images in extremely low light. Let Auto ISO mode determine the most appropriate setting automatically, or manually expand sensitivity as low as ISO 80. The camera also allows you to set up lower-limit shutter speed at time of Auto ISO setting.
  • Custom button creative convenience
    The custom (C) button allows you to program one of over 40 possible functions to best adapt the camera's capabilities to your shooting style. By assigning a frequently used function or a preferred setting to this button, you can call it up promptly. You'll gain handy fingertip access to your selection — for faster, more intuitive camera operation.
  • 180 ° tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition
    High-resolution 3.0-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.
  • MF Assist and Peaking functions for focus refinement
    These features help you fine-tune the focus as you desire. Manual Focus (MF) Assist magnifies the area you are focusing on to enable more precise adjustment, while Peaking highlights the sharpest or most in-focus area with your choice of color to help determine whether further focusing adjustment is required.
  • Bright Monitoring
    This function that boosts image brightness, for example, can be assigned to a customizable button for easy access when shooting a starry sky or other dark scene.
  • Dual Rec26 still shooting during movie recording
    Shoot still images of 17MP27 while recording a movie. The camera enables you to capture impressive high-quality stills even in movie-shooting. Auto Dual Rec release function lets the camera automatically take photos during movie recording. Select frequency of Auto Dual Rec release from high/standard/low settings.
  • Choose pro-quality XAVC S23 or AVCHD movie format
    Especially for serious videographers, XAVC S format23 provides low compression for high-quality movie expression and minimal noise even in scenes full of movement. You also have AVCHD format for easy editing and sharing. This camera uses 4K codec supporting 4K22 23 movie recording at up to 100 Mbps and additionally enables Full HD image recording.
  • Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities
    Simply press the shutter button halfway to activate Lock-on AF28 . It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size, improves tracking performance, and helps you take full advantage of every photo opportunity.
  • Eye AF in AF-C mode
    Eye AF is now available in AF-C mode in this camera. This means it automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subject’s eye as the face moves, extending your freedom to frame a shot.
  • One-touch remote/ One-touch sharing
    With one-touch remote, a smartphone or tablet functions as a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to the device. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile™ app via Wi-Fi® to an NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. QR code compatibility allows connection with non-NFC smartphones.
  • Diverse movie functions supporting pro-style usage
    Various available movie functions include Picture Profile (that determines the character of movies by changing basic parameters like chromogenic effects and gradation adjustment), S-Log2 gamma (that extends the dynamic range of recording to reduce occurrence of blown-out highlights and black crush), TC/UB, Rec Control, Dual Video Recording, etc.
  • File Name Setting
    The camera lets you change the first three characters of any file name from "DSC" (by default) to three characters of your choice. This simplifies file management and is especially valuable when working with multiple cameras for various assignments.
  • Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)
