Sony is rumored to release the new Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 V ultra-telephoto fixed-lens camera by the end of 2022. The biggest improvement of this camera is the addition of AI and computational photography technology. In addition, the Sony RX10 V camera has improved ergonomic design, removal of the on-camera flash, uses an NP-FZ100 battery (a6600 battery), and has the same lens as its predecessor (equivalent to 35mm focal length of 24-600mm). In terms of continuous shooting, the camera can achieve high-speed continuous shooting at 24 frames per second with blackout free EVF.
Sony RX10 V Rumored Specifications:
- AI and computational photography technology
- Real-time tracking, animal-eye AF / bird-eye AF
- Improved ergonomic design
- UHD 4K30 Video
- 24 fps Continuous Shooting
- ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* f/2.4-4 Zoom Lens

Currently, the market for integrated lens cameras is significantly smaller than before, but Panasonic, Nikon, and Canon still have a lineup of large integrated lens cameras equipped with high-power zoom, so Sony is still in this category. If the specs are as rumored, the new Sony RX10 V model is likely to be a normal evolution model that uses AI technology.
The current Sony RX10 IV is a bridge camera (a non-compact camera with a fixed lens) equipped with a 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor that supports image plane phase detection AF.
