Equally yous can see, the RX10 IV stacks up nicely side by side to its siblings and directly competitors. For someone primarily concerned with stills, the RX10 IV seems like the obvious choice, especially if you program on shooting action: it’s got the fastest burst charge per unit of the bunch and is the only camera in its class with phase detection.

Simply for videographers, the FZ2500 with its fully-articulating touchscreen, built-in variable ND filter and like zoom range might make it the more than sensible option, especially given its lower price signal (though we found its lens functioning inferior to its Sony counterparts). You lot don’t go the absurd, super-high-speed frame rate options offered by the Sony cameras, but 1080/120p is not besides shabby.


The RX10 IV is available now for an MSRP of $1699.
