The new V2.0 firmware update also improves the in-camera stabilisation, which is great news for all shooters and, in particular, those using the RX10 IV to shoot video.

The V2.0 update now means that Sony’s impressive, AI-driven, Real-Time Eye AF tech, can identify both animals and human eyes. To activate this function, you simply need to half-press the shutter, which will set the automatic function into action, producing flawlessly focussed photos and video.
