The new RX 100 VI combines the well-known compact form-factor with a long 28 - 200mm F2.8 - F4.5 lens. At this range, image stabilisation becomes very important.
The back of the camera features a tiltable LCD touchscreen (180 degrees up, 90 degrees down) that allows focus points to be selected by dragging a finger across it and photos to be captured by tapping it.
Sony has managed to keep the camera roughly the same size as its predecessor, despite the addition in focal length - but it is around 1.6mm deeper.
In a first for the RX100 series, the RX100 VI includes Sony's advanced High-density Tracking AF technology.
Sony claims that the RX100 VI has the World's fastest autofocus system, able to detect focus in 0.03 seconds.
Inside the camera is a 1-inch stacked 20.1-megapixel Exmore RS CMOS sensor with an upgraded BIONZ X image processor "with a front-end LSI that maximizes processing speed and optimizes image quality in all shooting environments", Sony says.

The EVF, an XGA OLED TruFinder with 2.35 million dots, has received a welcome update, now using a one-touch system to pop out and extend.
Rounding off its "all-rounder" status are video abilities which include, for the first time on a Cyber-shot compact, support for recording 4K HDR and the ability to shoot slo-mo scenes at a frankly ridiculous 1000fps.
You'll pay a pretty penny for all of this technology in the diminutive body of the camera.
The RX100 VI will ship in July and retail for $1,198 United States dollars.
