Sony’s line of RX100 compact cameras has been extremely popular for years, mainly because of their small size, and impressive photo and video shooting abilities. The RX100 VI, which was released in 2018, isn’t the newest addition to the lineup — that title belongs to the 2019-released RX100 VII — but it has pretty most of the same features as Sony’s newest compact shooter. Those features include a ridiculously wide 24–200mm lens and the ability to capture 4K video at 30fps. Both Sony cameras have the same one-inch, 20.1-megapixel sensor, as well.
If you’re looking for reasons to get the newer RX100 VII instead, there are a few. It’s a slightly smaller and lighter camera, and it has a marginally better battery life (240 vs 220 shots). The RX100 VII has autofocus and continuous shooting speeds are slightly better, too. Most significantly, the RX100 VII is the first RX100 compact camera to have a 3.5mm microphone input, which could be a game-changer if you plan on doing any vlogging.
The Sony RX100 VII is currently selling for $200 more than the Sony RX100 VI.
