Sony RX100 IV Hands-On Review

On this video Jordan Drake from from the Camera Store in Canada took the new Sony RX100 IV for a hands on field review for both the stills and video capabilities of this tiny compact and came back impressed.

The RX100 IV was announced alongside the RX100 II and the A7R II which is probably why it didn’t get that much attention – but according to this video it should as it has some pretty nice features and a few interesting improvements both in general image quality and in video – as Drake shows.

  • 20.1 megapixel 1″-Exmor R BSI-stacked CMOS sensor (improved IQ over the RX100 III).
