Sony RX100 V: Come for the insane burst, stay for the speedy autofocus
Sony's addition to its RX100 series of enthusiast compacts gets the mark five designation.
And while there aren't a lot of changes, there's one huge leap forward, it gets the company's fast hybrid autofocus system, the one used by Sony's higher end cameras.
It also claims a 24 frame per second continuous shooting speed with autofocus and autoexposure.
But for most people, the ten frame per second middle speed will be more than enough.
Although shooting at the highest burst rate, it makes the RX100 V feel like the world's most expensive GIF generator.
Unfortunately, while it lets you run long bursts, it's frustratingly not fast enough at writing those bursts or the longer high frame rate videos to the card.
The auto-focus works really well, at least for the type of shooting we got to do during the Sony setup event.
Lots of action but not a lot of it speeding through the frame.
It's really a reason to choose the five over the Mach 4 though.
