Today, Sony announced the new RX100 V at its event in New York. The high-end compact camera is loaded with features including the ability to shoot up to 24 RAW images per second. A mind-numbing spec that produces 150 shots in an extremely short period of time. That’s not the only standout feature here, however. Sony is also introducing a new 315-point auto-focus system that can identify a subject in just .05 seconds. Additionally, the RX100 V has a one-inch 20 megapixel RS CMOS sensor.

Sony will ship its latest release with a Zeiss 24-70mm F/1.8-2.8 Lens with built-in optical image stabilization. Flipping over to video, this camera can handle 4K with up to 1000fps at lower resolutions. That feature along should serve up some incredible slow-motion shots. A three-inch LCD display rounds out the list of notable specs. Sony is set to retail the RX100V for $1,000 when it comes to market in later this month.
