Sony RX10 V to be Announced in Late 2022

The latest rumor suggests Sony will announce a new Sony RX10 V high-power zoom camera with a fixed lens in late 2022 or earlier.

Sony RX10 V rumored specs

  • AI / computational technology will be installed in Sony cameras for the first time.
  • Improved design and ergonomics.
  • Removal of the flash
  • Incorporation of the a6600 battery (NP-FZ100 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion)
  • The lens is the same as the Sony RX10 IV (ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* f/2.4-4 Zoom Lens)
  • This camera will feature blackout free EVF bursts up to 24FPS.

The current Sony RX10 IV is a bridge camera (a non-compact camera with a fixed lens), it is a very easy-to-use camera with the stacked CMOS sensor, image plane phase detection AF and α series AF performance. I think that many people expect the completed “RX10 V” equipped with the latest AF algorithm and system.

The new Lossless Compressed Raw capture will offer small, medium or large (S, M or L) file sizes available in Sony’s menu. The ‘L’ file corresponds to the camera’s existing Lossless Raw option, which retains full image quality in a smaller file size, which the smaller alternatives reduce the pixel count in the files. The M size equates to 21MP and the S version to 12MP. Until we get a chance to install the firmware, we won’t know how the resolution reduced or how much impact there is on detail retention.

Other updates and bug-fixes include the ability record a proxy version while shooting video remotely, improvements to Eye-AF and fixing remote shooting using the Imaging Edge Desktop (Remote) software, along with general ‘stability’ improvements.

The price of the high-end full frame mirrorless camera is $6,499 and available at AmazonB&HAdorama.
