SENSOR

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI features a CMOS sensor in 1" size that has an area of approximately 13 x 9 mm² (0.52" x 0.35").

This infographic compares the Cyber-shot RX100 VI's sensor to other common formats:

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 20 megapixel. The resolution is above average and will be sufficient for the foreseeable future. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.

The Sony supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Sony's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

AUTO FOCUS

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI's auto focus processor uses 315 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. with low contrast subjects).

Manual focus is also possible with the Sony, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

FLASH

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI features a built-in flash with a range of up to 6m (20 ft.). That range will work for most situations.

A hotshoe is missing from the Sony.

DISPLAY
Cyber-shot RX100 VI display and touch screen

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 0.92 megapixel. That's about average.

The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the Cyber-shot RX100 VI, the highest supported resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixel, in other words 4K Video.

A connector for an external microphone is missing from the Sony. A built-in mike will usually record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is not always what the film maker wants. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI:

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI features a built-in stabilizer. With a 8x zoom a must-have.

A nice addition is the Sony's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

The camera has a built-in function to facilitate creating panoramas: While panning the Sony over the scene, the camera takes a sequence of images which are then automatically assembled to form a panorama.

The camera can create HDRs automatically. That saves you from manually creating sequences of images with variying exposure values.

The Cyber-shot RX100 VI is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI works with a NP-BX1 LiIon battery. The battery lifetime is an average 240 shots. That's on the lower side of things for a full day, consider a spare battery for the Cyber-shot RX100 VI.

The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.
