The Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV is in a league of its own. No other bridge camera handles and performs so well.
In this class, image quality is excellent. Detail at f/4 and f/5.6 is sharp from centre to corner across the majority of the zoom range. The RX10 IV really shines in its telephoto settings, where it is possible to make images at 600mm and f/4 with a lovely blurred background. Use shutter speeds as slow as 1/250sec and OIS ensures you’ll still get sharp results every time (unless the subject is a fast mover).
With those factors considered, the RX10 IV matches larger sensor DSLRs in this area. This is all backed up by an unmatched 24fps high-speed mode. We really can see wildlife photographers being very happy with the results, all from what is a comparatively small package.
Understandably you pay for the pleasure - this is more than 3x the price of other brand rivals and a mark up from its predecessor too. Yet, the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV could be all the camera you ever need.Read more

The RX10 IV suggests that Sony has listened to the main criticism levelled at the RX10 III, namely the slightly frustrating autofocus performance, and delivered an excellent bridge camera.
The AF performance now does justice to the camera, making it a viable option for shooting wildlife and action, especially if you want to rattle off images at 24fps – while we found that burst rate to be overkill, there will certainly be some applications where it's useful.
Stills and video image quality are impressive from the 1-inch sensor, while handling is very good. There's still room for improvement though – the arrival of some touchscreen functionality is welcome, but this could be integrated even further.
The biggest sticking point that's likely to deter potential purchasers is the price. The RX10 IV is almost twice the price of its closest direct competition, while there are also several tempting DSLR and mirrorless rivals to consider. However, you'd find it impossible to get a similarly-capable camera and lens combination to match the RX10 IV for a similar amount of money – and when you take that into account the price starts to look less outrageous.
It's also the case that not everyone wants to invest in a system with multiple lenses, and for those looking for a powerful all-in-one solution, the Sony RX10 IV is the best camera out there. It comes at a price, but there's nothing else quite like it.Read more

The Sony RX10 IV is – as of publishing – is the most wholly capable all-in-one camera package money can buy. It is truly a fully-realized RX10 III and the perfect option for anyone seeking a camera that can handle high-quality stills and video duty with total ease. From run-and-gun video shooters, to multimedia news reporters to travelers seeking a camera that can do it all: the RX10 IV is for you.
But don't confuse being a well-rounded all-in-one camera with being a replacement for a sports-oriented interchangeable lens camera. The lack of ability to zoom while maintaining focus, and the relatively slow zoom speed compared to a manually driven zoom lens will surely be a deal breaker for serious action shooters. And while AF is excellent, it isn't sports-camera reliable. Furthermore, there's no AF fine tuning options like the ones found in most speed-oriented ILCs.
Still, I feel there are a few conceivable things Sony can do to improve the RX10 series beyond what's been achieved in IV without fully re-designing the body. If the brand is intent on releasing a follow up, it is my sincerest hope that it will look and handle more like an Alpha-series camera than a CyberShot.
Ultimately, Sony's gone and done what's never been done before: stuck a phase detect AF system in a superzoom. And the result is a highly capable camera that gets enough right to warrant a gold award and our recommendation.Read more
