Quite possibly the best pocket camera ever just got better. I’ve owned both the Sony RX100 and RX100II. Both are amazing travel cameras that can fit in nearly any pocket and have some of the best online reviews I’ve seen in recent camera history. How do you make such a great camera into something better? Give it the ability to grab 4K video recording (in-camera) and the ability to shoot slow motion footage at 960fps.

The new Sony RX100IV sports the same 24-70mm lens as the RX100III, but adds a new stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor combined with a new processor and DRAM combination that enables the high-speed and slow-motion capabilities. The sensor is still 1-inch in size producing 20 megapixel still images. Up to five minutes of 4K video footage can be recorded per session. An improved burst rate of 16 frames per second has been added, with shutter speeds of up to 1/32,000 of a second.
The Sony RX100IV is available for pre-order today at B&H Photo for $948.
