The Sony RX100 VII is a travel-friendly camera that takes great-quality images; perfect for taking with me on shoots. This weekend, I was asked to photograph a group of cute puppies—lively and restless subjects that rarely kept still—over at Quezon province. This assignment really put the RX100 VII’s auto-focus speed to the test, and as promised, this camera delivered.
The dogs ran all over the place (this was expected, as they were outside with no leashes), but the focus pulls were on point and my shots were in focus nine times out of ten. It helped a lot that the camera not only has an eye auto-focus for humans, but for animals as well.
The camera’s focal length of 24–200mm also comes as a plus, which allowed me to do tight close-ups of my subjects without the need to get too close for comfort. I personally own an RX100 V with a focal length of 24–70mm, and definitely noticed that I had much more reach with this version.
