Sony RX100 VII Unboxing! LITERALLY the Best Travel Video Camera!

by birtanpublished on April 10, 2021

The Sony rx100 mark 7 might be able to replace your entire studio setup but what actually comes in the box let's find out what's up everyone I'm the everyday dad and if I can figure it out you can figure it out and welcome back to the Sony rx100 Mark 7 now I didn't actually think that we would be approaching this camera again so soon after I just got back from cando where I was able to mess around with this a bit but then a local camera store of mine actually had one in so I went out and I purchased this myself because I do think that this is gonna replace my travel rig and I'm really excited so let's crack it

Open so again I purchased this one at myself the model that I was using before was on loan to me from Sony it was not necessarily a production model I don't exactly know what firmware in it but this model is the one that you yourself could go out and purchase so let's hopefully it's as good as I like the other one let's see what we got in these in this container so we've got the you know a normal amount of literature books and stuff we got the manual card the warranty card a sony credit card we're gonna we're gonna hide that before the everyday wife finds that cuz she would

Not be happy with me if I got a Sony camera credit card I would never see I mean I already never stop buying a camera junk so see what we got in here we've got the you know the USB charger pretty standard stuff which means we're not gonna get a battery charger and someday I hope that Sony will come to their senses and give us a battery charger included in the camera I mean this is a $1,200 camera this is an expensive camera like there's no two ways about it this cost as much as my gh 5 and the gh 5 is like a professional camera this is a point shoot if you're

Gonna charge that much you should at least give me a battery charger and you should not be look at that see that that's micro USB that's not even USB see so kind of disappointing in the things that we get in the box except this guy the wrist strap and you already know what I'm gonna ask you how many of you actually use the wrist strap included with your camera leave a comment below I'm very curious we always I always ask these on every camera unboxing because I never I mean I never use one not a single camera this studio has ever had a strap on it

But they include somebody's got to use him right let me know if you are one of those people what else do we get included in the box pretty bare-bones set up we get the what is this Oh are they already including this looks like a this looks like little adapters for like okay this is pretty cool this is for it looks like an actual camera strap so it looks like instead of just using the little wrist strap that we have here if you wanted to use this with like an actual camera strap we'll see if this has little mounting points in it for that that's pretty and then we

Immediately lose it but that's pretty neat I like that idea that isn't that is a neat little defend then we've got the NP bx1 battery again about as standard as you can get when it comes to a sony point-shoot camera but let's get this thing out of the nut box out of the pack because oh I do I very much like the Sony rx100 cameras I've been using an Rx 100 mark 5 for a long time I've never really considered buying another Rx because like what there's no point that was frustrating there we've got the camera out of its little tag that I did not want to destroy but sometimes you

Just get frustrated and again I'm a huge fan of the Sony rx100 cameras I've been using an arc cylinder mark 5 for a long time and this still it just feels good it feels hold on okay so this is my rx100 mark 5 that is beaten up and has seen better days and this is the rx100 mark 7 and it they're very I mean it's a little bit bigger the rx100 mark 7 looks a little bit bigger maybe like a little wider to fit in all that new tech the controls looked I mean the controls look the exact same the back looks pretty much the exact same except it doesn't look like it's been destroyed and mauled

By by me because I'm pretty rough on gear yet it definitely looks a little like a little wider than the mark 5 now one of the things that the mark 5 does have is the mark 5 does have a built-in ND filter it's one point eight at the wide instead of two point eight to wide however the Aqsa hundred mark 7 does have some things that the 5 cannot do which is the reason why I decided to upgrade seven so yeah you can see arch 100 mark seven there is nothing really outstanding about the physical construction of the camera except this

New model ever since the six did you do this 90-degree tilting down and the big physical change is that microphone in Jack which is I mean about fifty percent of the reason that I got this camera the other 50 percent is something that we will check in just a second but yeah feels feels good still has the viewfinder with the new one-click viewfinder again from the the arc senator mark six it's got the flash that I literally literally never use of course I never used that either we've still got the high frame rate load we've still got the movie mode let's take this

Battery out because I always have some kind of Sony battery charging because I have a whole bunch of Sony cameras here and let's turn it on we speak English mostly English and bad English New York we'll deal with that later imaging app we will worry about the app later and there we go we are currently using the rx100 mark 7 it does have the tap to focus much like the the a 73 and those assorted cameras it does have the new menu system which I very very very much liked over the the older Sony menu system I think complaining about Sony menus at this point is just you're kind

Of just complaining to complain but here's the big change that we did not talk about in my last video because it was initial impressions video thank you to my buddy photo gear fund who let me know that you can record a basically unlimited amount of 4k if you turn this power temperature too high so now we can record 4k for longer than five minutes at a time that's the other 50% of why I got this I got this to basically replace the a 6400 that's reporting me right now from the top because this can do everything everything that I need in a camera this can do it's got great

Autofocus the slow motion works perfect for b-roll the indoor you can now have a microphone with everything just I'm so excited to use this and what we're actually going to do since we've seen I mean the menus are Sony menus like I said in the initial impressions video you're either going to love them you're gonna hate them I don't mind them but what we're gonna do is we're gonna throw this up on my other tripod here to show you how this would look if you wanted to use this as an indoor studio camera here in my studio not you know back at Sony condo and then we're gonna

Take it outside and do a quick video slash vlogging test to see maybe there was just a fluke in the camera that I had before and we'll see it's still working so okay and now we are on the Sony rx100 Mark seven now we do have it hold on it looks a little we're gonna have to bump up the light a little bit because we are indoors it is a smaller sensor it's got you know a little bit but this is the image quality that you could get indoors from the Sony rx100 Mark 7 I've got a set white balance to my light I have done nothing else oh I have it in picture profile 1 but this is

The audio with a diety d3 pro just like right here boomed off in front of me and you can hear the difference between this and like the XLR microphone that the g h5 has that I think is some of the best audio I've ever gotten but yeah this is the indoor image quality and I think I mean again you know what it looks like I don't yet I haven't had a chance to review this but I can see that it's got the eye autofocus on it's focusing on this eyeball right now like that's nuts like the a 6400 that we were doing the overhead thing from before is fantastic some of the best autofocus I've ever

Used like I did some of the best that I've ever seen in my life and this does even better like that's insane and I think it looks perfectly good indoors like there's not a lot of cameras that I trust to do indoor video stuff that's not like a 1.4 prime lens like we've got on the gh 5 right now that is way overexposed because I had to bump up the way but yeah the image quality is insane I'm so excited to see how this looks but next up let's hop outside really quick and let's see how it works as a vlogging camera when I'm not like at condo I'm here at my house

With one that I bought myself so let's hop outside check it out and welcome to the outdoor vlogging test of the rx100 Mark 7 I could have waited until it was like the Sun had gone down it was nice and beautiful with even lighting I could have made this look really good but instead I hopped out during the middle of the day that's when we're gonna put the camera to the test any camera can look good if you get nice lighting on it but we are the sun's beating right down on me we're currently in picture profile 1 we're recording in 4k 30 frames per second and

We've got the audio is coming from the road Wireless NGO that I've just kind of got like clipped to the back as you probably saw in the last video but yeah this is the image quality and this is what you could expect if you wanted to use this as an outdoor with a Sun finally one away thank goodness but yeah this is what you could get my neighbors also mowing their lawn right now so hopefully that's not ruining the audio and we'll have to retake this again but yeah this is the image quality what else would you like to see out of the rx100 mark 7 leave a comment below

And if you want to you can check out my initial impressions from back your condo at this link thing thanks for watching
