Our rating of the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV

Sony's RX10 IV is the manufacturer's flagship superzoom. Featuring a 1" sensor and a 25x zoom by German optics firm Zeiss the camera also offers 4K video, Wifi connectivity and integrated functions for panos and HDR. Dedicated manual controls for focus, zoom and aperture lend a DSLR like feeling as does the secondary display on the top side of the camera. However, the massive lens (F2.8 - F4) leads to a rather bulky body and a weight of over 1 kg (more than 2 lbs).

Other features include very fast autofocus and continuous drive for up to 24 images per second. Battery life is decent at c. 400 photos per charge.

For a shorter zoom (8x) in a much smaller package, see the RX10 III's sibling, the Cyber-shot RX10 II. If you don't need 4K video, the first Cyber-shot RX10 II from 2013 is still recommendable.
