Have you ever heard of the “1 second everyday?” If you’re feeling sentimental and need something that will help you look back at what you’ve done for the year, then this is something you should definitely do come the new year. It’s as simple as recording a 1-second video each day and compile it at the end of the year. 

This is best done with the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII. A compact camera with a flip screen, pop-up view finder, and 0.02 second super-fast AF. Its easy operation sets your creativity free so let that inner vlogger in you come out this new year. 

The RX100 VII, which looks almost the same as its predecessor, will definitely surprise you with the ZEISS Vario-Sonnar 24-200mm zoom lens, new Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF. It is claimed to have one of the world’s fastest AF performance among fixed lens still cameras with 1” sensors. 

On top of that, it is newly developed with 1.0 type stacked CMOS image sensor and latest BIONZ Ximage processing engine that claims to open new dimensions in speed and image quality.

You also don’t need to worry if you’re the type to live your life on the fast lane. The RX100 VII has a fast new image sensor that can continuously shoot up 20fps. It tracks your subjects with AF/AE calculations at up to 60 times per second. It also has a Blackout-free Shooting to track your subject’s movement without lag on the camera’s LCD display or viewfinder screen. 

But, it doesn’t end there. It has the new Single Burst Shooting function which will capture erratic or very fast-moving actions with selectable speeds of 90fps, 60fps, or 30fps.

Yup, the RX100 VII is smooth and stable most especially when using the 4K (QFHD 3,840 x 2,160) movie recording with full pixel and no pixel binning. Real-time tracking and Real-time AF are also now available for movies because of the enhanced AF algorithms. You can also simply tap the screen to initiate Real-time Tracking for either stills or movies. Touch Focus, Touch Pad, and Touch shutter are also available.

You can also expect stress-free shooting with the new Touch Tracking for movies. It gives you fast, easy autofocus plus Real-time Eye AF (human) ensures precise focus. Definitely convenient for travel vlogs because image stabilization Active mode produces smooth 4K video. This is also where the flip screen and the external mic input come in handy. Yup, despite its compact size there is a standard 3.5mm microphone input which enables professional audio capture for your movies and vlogs. 

The Sony RX100 VII starts at P69,999 or P74,999 when you choose to get it with a shooting grip. If cost is no object, it’s a good buy. But if you are on a budget, the price is a bit steep.
