Take a Swift Shot

Sony’s RX100 V is far more noticeable than its predecessors, as its updated autofocus system is a massive jump over the previous RX100 IV, even though the specsmanship-level 24fps continuous shooting means that the company now needs to enhance the speed of writing files onto the card.
The camera has a similar body, internals and features as that of the previous model. It has the same image processor and 20.1-megapixel resolution. The popup viewfinder, extensive set of 4K video capacities and shooting modes are also the same.
However, the new version of the 1-inch sensor has phase-detection autofocus pixels, which is the company’s Fast Hybrid autofocus system, besides the old, sluggish 25-area contrast autofocus, which makes improvement in action shooting – tracking subjects and action shooting.
With fast vertical motion but slow horizontal movement, the camera performs really well; it grabs focus and tracks quite accurately and fast. If one is in a low-light environment, it is impossible to decipher how sharp the photos could be, pictures taken with high ISO sensitivity look comparatively sharp, but not with full size.
The camera is complemented by a new processing hardware and a larger memory buffer which according to the company allows them to achieve 24 frames in a second for shooting continuously using autofocus and auto-exposure, for up to 150 shots.
Nevertheless, the bandwidth amid the SD card and buffer does not seem to have changed; hence, it is really slow to write videos and bursts to the card. After a 24fps burst, one can still begin with another, but for other operations you will not see anything but a message that states its writing to the card. The buffer allows one to shoot 141 best-quality JPEGS at approximately 10fps. Shooting many photos may consume excessive battery of shot using flash. It is easy to do so during continuous shooting and much easier if one is at the 24fps rate.
The camera’s new silicon also enables the company to multiply the maximum length of a high-frame rate recording to approximately seven seconds, for a 1080/240p video. There are also some changes to settings for the features already existing. The HFR processing speed has not changed, even though it takes a long time for it to progress and write to the card. The implementation may seem annoying when one switches into HFR mode, then one has to put it on standby before starting to record. One cannot zoom once you are in HFR either, so if you have forgotten to set up a shot in advance, you will have to swoop.
