The RX100 V, meanwhile, captures RAW photos at a ridiculous 24 frames per second. That’s an impressive feat for most digital cameras, let alone one that fits in your jean pocket. Sony’s new high-end point-and-shoot is powered by a 20.1-megapixel 1-inch sensor and an image processor that, according to Sony, handles real-time noise reduction for every picture. Again, the theme of the day is speed, and the RX100 V’s electronic shutter is capable of hitting a max of 1/32,000th of a second. Let’s just say you shouldn’t have any trouble taking pictures of moving subjects.
As we’ve come to expect from Sony, both cameras shoot in 4K (3,840 x 2,160), although the footage from the A6500 is scaled down from 6K. In theory, that should give you sharper videos all around, plus the ability to crop frames and not worry about losing quality. The RX100 V, for its part, features a 960-fps high frame rate mode, which gives you up to 80 seconds of super slow motion recordings (40x).
