|The Cyber-shot RX10 IV was presented by Sony in September 2017. It is a Superzoom Digital Camera.|

Also 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.
The Cyber-shot RX10 IV's sensor has resolution of 20 megapixel.
The Sony supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Sony's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The Cyber-shot RX10 IV's shutter speed varies from 1/2000s to 30s.
The highest shutter speed of the Sony is just 1/2000s. That's no longer state of the art and may cause problems in challenging light conditions.

|Min. shutter speed||30s|
The Cyber-shot RX10 IV's sensitivity is from 100 ISO and 12800 ISO.
Also, Sony's sensitivity can be boosted to 25600. Therefore, ISO boosting will lead to growth noise.

|Auto Focus Properties|
The Cyber-shot RX10 IV's auto focus processor uses 315 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).
Manual focus is also possible with the Sony, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
The Cyber-shot RX10 IV has a built-in flash with a diapason of up to 11m (36 ft.). That range will fit for almost all occasion.
The Cyber-shot RX10 IV features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.44 megapixel. A resonable value that will make it easy to evaluate images directly in-camera.
The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.
The Cyber-shot RX10 IV's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.
