From the manufacturer
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens for high depiction
Large-diameter ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70 mm 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 defocusing. ZEISS T* Coating reduces ghost and flare.
20.1 MP (effective) 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor
The 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 40x slow motion and up to 1/32000 high-speed shutter beyond human perception. The extended circuit features high signal processing capacity and more than five times faster high-speed readout than conventional models.
BIONZ X for high detail and texture
Digital cameras convert light captured by their sensor into digital images. Since the engine that powers conversion is as important as your lens and sensor, the RX100 IV features the high-speed BIONZ X processor for more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise while shooting photos and movies.
Slow motion at maximum of 40x
Using the mode dial to select HFR, it’s easy to create slow motion movies containing split-second moments of action. Choose shooting frame rates of 960/1000 fps, 480/500 fps or 240/250 fps (NTSC/PAL), for the speed of a moving subject. Image quality is nearly Full HD at 240/250 fps and HD at 480/500 fps in Quality Priority mode. The end trigger mode also enables you to capture 2 or 4 seconds before the Movie button is pressed, letting you capture the decisive moment.
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 fast shutter speed also allows you to produce photos with background defocusing using a large aperture setting even under bright conditions at a maximum of EV19.
Up to 16 fps continuous shooting with reduced blackout
Thanks to the high-speed image sensor — and despite its 20.1 MP17 high pixel count — the camera features accelerated readout speed that helps achieve continuous shooting up to 16 fps. This lets you capture moments of fleeting beauty or facial expressions.
180 degree tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition
High-resolution 3.0-type screen with tilt capability is appropriate for taking selfies and framing of otherwise impossible overhead or low-angle shots. You can use it in high/low shooting positions for high flexibility in capturing creative compositions.
Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder for inspired shooting
High-contrast retractable electronic viewfinder (EVF) delivers high resolution equivalent to 2359 k dots. High resolution and self-illumination allow display of subtlest details for precise composition. EVF eyepiece optics are treated with ZEISS T* Coating to reduce unwanted reflections for clear corner-to-corner visibility.
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.
Connect to smartphones and tablets with one touch
Instantly transfer a photo or movie to your Android smartphone or tablet by simply touching it with the camera — using downloadable PlayMemories Mobile and built-in Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication). One touch can also activate Smart Remote Embedded, for remote control of the camera from a mobile device and movie recording start/stop.
Direct 4 K movie recording via camera alone
The RX100 IV can record high-precision 4 K movie data. Moreover, high-precision 4 K images with suppressed moiré and jaggies can be delivered via data readout without pixel binning or line skipping.
Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments
The camera adopts Fast Intelligent AF featuring high-speed, highly accurate contrast-detection autofocus. Improved from the AF system used in α7 series, it achieves focus by minimising wasted lens motion, predicting AF range and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture even more fleeting moments.

So what are the stand-out features?
- Ruggedness has to be one of them. On my 2nd day (!) of ownership it detached from the top of my tripod (my fault) and fell from table height onto a stone floor.The body is metal and feels nice and solid, but it was a bit flattened on one corner. However, that's it. No problems whatsoever with any camera functions. Since then I have fallen off my bike with the camera around my neck, and despite road contact, it came up smiling (I didn't).
- The quality of the lens. I think this is why the zoom is limited. The lens does its job superbly and I suspect that Sony didn't want to push it outside its optimum performance envelope. The quality of the image means you can overcome some of that zoom limitation simply by cropping.
- Low light performance. This is astonishing. Using the "Night, Hand Held" setting you can take the most amazing pictures without a tripod. Several of the images I have included (the moon through the clouds, patio at night, deep dusk sunset, are simply hand-held. The photos of the milky way had the benefit of a tripod though I have taken lots of starry pictures without one.
- Challenging light conditions generally; I've included a few images taken towards the sunrise and it copes well.
The nice to have are:
- Electronic view finder, very, very good.
- Screen at back can be tilted (very useful, more than I expected) and it understands selfies too.
- Lots and lots of manual control and special setups like the hand-held at night. Worth exploring those.
- Raw image if you want it.
- The WiFi is handy and works well. I paired it with my iPad no problem, and the download is fast.
- I think the much touted slow motion up to 1000 frames per second is overdone. On my iPhone I can do only modest slo mo, but it's easy to use. I just film as usual, but having selected slo mo first. Thats it. With the RX100 you have to go into a special High Frame Rate Mode, put the camera into standby, point it at the thing you want, and press go. It only buffers a few seconds worth, and I think if you want to film your child and pony clearing a jump, don't bother (or use an iPhone). I've taken some very nice dequendes of dripping water and things falling, but it's not convenient.
None. It oozes quality, has super dynamic range, stunning images, convenience, usability and more. If you don't fancy forking out for a M4, consider one of the others, down to and including the M1. My daughter has that and it too is a super camera. I wanted a view finder so I held out for the M4, but it looks like the M3 would do most of what I want too.
Ironically, when I returned to more serious photography after years of just using either cheap consumer point and shoot digital cameras or (heavens forbid) the camera on my phones (actually the quality of camera phones today is really quite amazing) I opted for the Panasonic Micro Four Thirds (MFT) system as I didn't want to carry around heavy DSLRs and large lenses. Now, whilst my MFT cameras and lenses are great they are still too bulky for everyday carrying - I like to take a camera everywhere with me and keep one in my brief case or backpack, just in case. Further, they are too big for travelling - I try to travel with just one carry on case. So I bought myself first of all a Sony DSC HV90 which has travelled the world with me and proven to be great in most situations, except low light environments with its F3.5 - F6.4 maximum aperture range. I have to say that I never really had much of an issue with its 1/2.3 inch sensor or lack of raw or 4K video. However, though would be good to complement the HX90 with a similar camera. It made sense in my mind to have a similar companion of travel which could use the same batteries (less weight to carry differing chargers etc) and a similar menu. Hence, the RX100 M4 came into my life.
My, my this is a fantastic little camera. Ok so I was pretty much familiar with the form factor, the menus and feel of the camera from day one fro my experiences with the HX90. But then there is so much more under the skin, with the RX100 M4. The F1.8 to F2.4 (ok so F1.8 is only really available at the widest 24mm equivalent and closes to F2.0 almost as soon as you touch the zoom lever) allows shooting in really low light environments. I find the auto-focus to be spot on and the lens range from 24mm to 70mm to be perfect for the kind of city and landscape photography that I prefer.
There are so many options and I am still getting to grips with these.
The connection to mobile phones and tablets for on the spot reviewing and editing photos works well.
I intend to update this review as I grow more accustomed to the RX100M4. But early impressions have been very positive and I would highly recommend this little beauty to any one. (Coupled with the HX90 for - its telephoto range for those times you need a 720mm equivalent lens in your pocket). It's lightweight, easy to carry everywhere, has a good battery life - I find I can usually shoot all day (300 plus shots on average) on a single battery.
