As a followup to the Sony RX100M IV, the renowned electronics corporation just unveiled the new RX100 Mark V. Incredible improvements have been made and this latest shooter will undoubtedly redefine the landscape of compact cameras. The device is fitted with a one-inch Exmor RS CMOS image sensor that offers approximately 20.1 megapixels. It’s equipped with a 24-70mm, 1.8-2.8 aperture zoom lens coupled with Sony’s signature Fast Hybrid AF autofocus system. The advanced sensor with its on-sensor phase detection presumably mimics that of a professional DSLR’s autofocus system—touting 315 phase detection points that take up about 65 percent of the image sensor. Moreover, the camera allows users to snap 24 images per second—up to 150 frames at maximum resolution—for both JPEG and RAW formats. Not to mention, shutterbugs can capture 4K videos alongside its autofocus tracking.

The Sony RX100 Mark V is slated to hit store shelves at the end of October for $1,000 USD. Let us know if this tiny beast is on your radar.
