I’ve been shooting for the past month or so with the newest version in Sony’s RX100 compact camera line, the Sony RX100 V. Here’s a collection of high-resolution sample images to go along with a detailed hands-on review that I’m putting together.

The RX100 V has a 1.0-type stacked Exmore RS CMOS sensor that generates 20.1 megapixel images that are 5472 by 3648 pixels. It has an ISO sensitivity range from 125 to 25600.

These images were originally shot in Sony’s ARW RAW format and lightly processed in Lightroom. I’ve tried to include a range of shooting conditions and settings to give you an idea of how it handles various scenes.

Price & Availability of the Sony RX100 V Compact Camera

The Sony RX100 V is an older model now and has been replaced. The latest version in this line is the RX100 VII (you can see some photos I’ve taken with the RX100 VII here).

But Sony did tweak the RX100 V. The version I was shooting with here was the original RX100 V. Sony subsequently released the RX100 VA. It was only a subtle upgrade, with an improved processor that allowed for a larger buffer and some firmware tweaks. Sony offered a larger upgrade with the RX100 VI.

The RX100 VA is now easier to find in stores than the original RX100 V.
