Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The Sony RX10 Mark IV is a high-end bridge super-zoom camera. It has a 24-600mm / 25x zoom, weather-proof body and OLED EVF. It also has the latest RX100 sensor and imaging pipeline. But it's no surprise having phase-detect AF with the longer range is so much more.

Pros
  • Super-zoom autofocus
  • Wide Area AF
  • 24fps burst shooting
Cons
  • No wireless charging

RX100 Mark IV is one of the smallest traditional compacts with 4k video. Slow motion modes from 4x to 40x are simply fantastic. Good quality 1in sensor. Bright 24-70mm f1.8-2.8 lens range with ND filter. Great quality viewfinder which folds into body. Tilting screen flips-up to face subject for selfies and vlogging. Can recharge and power the camera over USB. E-shutter with 1/32000 max speed and low skewing.

Pros
  • Fantastic 4k video
  • 4k video and 4k movies
  • Great viewfinder
Cons

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Sony RX10 IV is very good for sport and wildlife photography. The camera feels incredibly comfortable to use, although it's bulky. Its continuous shooting speed is very fast, as it can shoot at an outstanding 21 fps when using its electronic shutter. It does a fantastic job tracking moving faces in 4k and FHD video. However, its video quality is disappointing in FHD.
