  • Sony RX10M4 - A Fantastic Camera
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - December 6, 2021

    After owning several Sony Camera's including a A99 and a RX10M3, I am very pleased with the RX10M4. The A99 which was a Full Frame Camera was the best performer, however including two lenses, was very heavy especially when you went on holiday. The RX10m3 including it's 24-600 lense made travelling with a camera much easier. Plus it took very good photo's. The Sony RX10M4 is a vast improvement with it's faster Focus, with the ability to change the main focal point. The 24 FPS is also a major step forward, especially when taking action shots. I look forward to the future with this camera to record our memories. I look forward to seeing what the Mark 5 will bring to improve the camera.

  • Have had some impressive results so far!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by NNB23 - January 7, 2019

    I bought this just before Christmas as one of the main features my previous Cybershot didn't have was the continuous auto focussing, which I wanted for wildlife photography. I'm still experimenting, which is why I haven't given it five stars yet as I need to be convinced that it's worth the large investment. Have had some impressive results so far but they're inconsistent and I haven't mastered the slo mo videos either, which appear to struggle to focus but are fine when taken on my Sony phone. It could be operator trouble so will continue to practise with all of the functions of the camera as a whole. The quality of the photos when it does focus properly far exceeds the ones taken with my previous HX400v camera!

  • Has got every thing and more
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - November 6, 2020

    I am so pleased that I have changed over to this Sony RX10iv, having come over from a DSLR using a 150-600mm lens I found it much lighter and do not have to carry much to any gear around with me due to my condition and finding it harder to walk these days this fits my needs for my Wildlife photography and the pin sharp eye detail is phenomenal and the amazing 24fps and the looped slow motion is unbelievably good and the pictures really sharp. Just over the moon with it ( and the moon pics are out of this world)

  • Excellent bridge camera.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Iceman88 - July 18, 2020

    I bought this camera as I didn't want to go down the " big bag of bits " route. I prefer one camera to do it all, I know this isn't always the case but the Sony dsc rx10 mk4 is as close as you'll get at the moment. It has good close up capability, a reasonable zoom and fast focusing for moving shots. Here are some recent pictures.

  • Love this camera
    Reviewed by Mallyb47 - October 13, 2021

    I’ve had this camera for just coming up to a year now, and can honestly say I love everything about it . Quality of build is excellent and the photo quality for this type of camera is nothing short of first class. I’ve included a few shots that have been taken over the last year.
