Product Details

Sony Cyber-shot 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera

Embrace the perks of your Sony Cybershot camera, with 20.1 megapixels for sharper and fuller images. It records in crystal 4K UHD as well, so vloggers or videographers can make use of this camera's features on the go or in a studio space for clear and breathtaking video as well as photography. The Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera comes with a BIONZ X processor to ensure the highest resolution to the edges of images, making it easier to shoot steady close-ups, bookeh, and more. The various shooting modes provided also allow you to style and frame shots to suit your ideal goals, and to make that great shot look perfect. The Optical SteadyShot technology also helps to compensate for a shaky camera when in video mode. Now, it's easier to capture more stunning stills and movies at every opportunity. The new RX10 IV is much more than a solid, smart all-in-one compact—it packs enough groundbreaking innovations for even professionals to marvel at, from this ultra-fast AF system of its kind, to legendary optics throughout its 25x zoom range, to extraordinarily precise, powerful image processing, and more.


  • 0.03-sec. autofocus speed doesn't miss a move
    The RX10 IV's AF systems heighten response, accuracy, and range for more controllably precise, tenacious focus on your subject, however quickly the scene's action unfolds
  • Incomparable AF speed
    See ultra-fast autofocus in action. World-leading 0.03-s1 AF speed is made possible by the 1.0-type Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor that provides for fast, accurate autofocusing at all times
  • All-around AF coverage
    Autofocus captures a subject wherever it is in the image. 315 phase-detection AF points cover approx. 65% of the image area to provide widespread autofocus coverage of subjects that appear in the frame
  • Tenacious AF tracking
    Stays on moving subjects for as long as you like. With High-density Tracking AF Technology, focus reliably stays on moving subjects and activates AF points to cover the area around the subject
  • Advanced operation with an easy touch
    • More tactile focus control even when shooting
      The exemplary RX10 IV puts more intuitive, versatile control of focus right at your fingertips
    • Smooth focus point selection with Touch Pad AF
      Slide your finger to shift focus. It's handy while monitoring the viewfinder
    • Tap on a next subject with Touch Focus
      Simply touch the LCD screen to focus on the chosen subject
  • More rapid, wide-ranging autofocus control
    • AF operation extended and refined
      Touch operation and other autofocus innovations take optimal advantage of the Fast Hybrid AF system's superior speed, accuracy and versatility for location shooting, continuous shooting, and ultra-telephoto shooting
    • Focus Range Limiter is ready for action
      This allows for more rapid focusing according to distance from subjects
    • AF-A mode AF-A mode optimizes AF mode automatically
      Automatically switches between Single AF and Continuous AF tracking, whichever is optimal
    • No half-press to focus with AF-ON
      This lets you capture moments instantly without a half-press focus sequence
  • Continuous shooting up to 24fps
    Consistently capture decisive moments of even fast-moving action. The RX10 IV features a high-speed front-end LSI and the vast power of the BIONZ X™ image processing engine to enable continuous shooting, even with AF/AE tracking, at up to approx. 24fps3 for up to 2494 frames at a time
  • High-speed 24fps shooting with AF/AE tracking
    Features refined to match higher shooting capability. Even images shot continuously at 24fps look extraordinarily smooth and rich as you monitor them on the electronic viewfinder that keeps display lag to an absolute minimum during shooting
  • Silent electronic shutter
    Shoot noise-sensitive scenes without making a sound. Record live performances, wildlife, and action without being distracting, by setting the electronic shutter for silent shooting5. Up to 1/32,000-s fast, this shutter also minimizes image distortion
  • All-in-wonderful
    Sony packs the RX10 IV with extraordinary large aperture lenses, a state-of-the-art BIONZ X™ processor ensuring high resolution out to the images' edges, capability to shoot dazzling bokeh and steady close-ups, and much more. The quality of every still and movie image, even shot at top speed, is as clearly superior as all the innovation that this brilliant Cyber-shot™ contains
  • The pursuit of optical perfection
    Flawless images take more exceptional elements of refinement. The built-in ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-600 mm6 F2.4-4 high magnification zoom lens achieves excellent contrast and sharpness in every shot, throughout an extreme wide-angle to ultra-telephoto range
  • Advanced BIONZ X
    Powers image processing to an all-time high. The BIONZ X™ image processor's advanced algorithm improves image quality by enhancing resolution, minimizing noise, and depicting reality in all its variety and subtlety
  • Fast Hybrid AF for 4K movie recording
    Pro class shooting features for more professional results. Fast Hybrid AF makes autofocus more speedy and accurate, while 4K movie (QFHD: 3,840 x 2,160) recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning ensures footage with resolution high enough to satisfy professionals
  • Operate on impulse
    Focusing, monitoring, setting adjustments and other essential functions not only feel natural to handle at all times—they're designed to accommodate professional-style applications as well
  • PlayMemories Online™
    Back up stills and movies to Sony's cloud service. Access them from any device
