Broad zoom range from a pocket-size camera.
The built-in ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm F2.8-4.5 zoom lens covers a broad zoom range equivalent to two standard zoom lenses (24-70mm and 70-200mm), all in a very compact size.
It's configured with eight aspherical lens elements with 13 aspherical faces to achieve maximum resolution, clarity and contrast across the entire zoom range, and all the way out to the edge of the image.
Four of Sony's original AA (advanced aspherical) elements help minimise spherical, coma and chromatic aberrations.
A new image sensor that delivers new levels of performance.
The newly developed Exmor RS™ 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor works in tandem with the latest BIONZ X™ image-processing engine to deliver powerful levels of performance.
The result is fast, Blackout-free Shooting at up to 20fps and Single Burst Shooting at up to 90fps.
Reliable AF/AE tracking is possible thanks to rapid arithmetic processing at 60 times/sec.
to predictively track subject motion, and the electronic viewfinder and LCD monitor also benefit, with improved image quality and smooth 60fps display during shooting.
Up to 20fps fast, Blackout-free Shooting with AF/AE tracking.
Now you can rely on Blackout-free Shooting at up to 20fps, complete with AF/AE tracking, so you won't lose track of a moving subject even at telephoto range.
Precise, reliable AF/AE tracking is based on high-speed arithmetic processing at up to 60 times per second during continuous shooting.

For human subjects, activating Real-time Eye AF simply requires a half-press of the shutter button.
4K HDR (HLG) video recording.
When shooting 4K (QFHD resolution: 3840 x 2160) moviesthe RX100 VII uses full pixel readout, without pixel binning, and 1.7x oversampling to provide outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies.
The XAVC S video format supports high-bitrate recording (max. 100Mbps) and, with HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) capability, you can enjoy HDR images simply by connecting the camera to an HDR (HLG) compatible Sony TV via a USB cable.
