With the introduction of its RX100 series in 2012, Sony raised the bar for point-and-shoot cameras. As such, it's no surprise that the latest model can do things like capture JPEG and RAW photos at a mind-boggling 24 frames per second. The RX100 V is all about speed, driven by a 20.1-megapixel 1-inch sensor and an autofocus system that, according to Sony, meets and exceeds the requirements of any professional photographer. That may be a marketing hyperbole, but I did shoot with the RX100 V last night and the results are impressive. Especially for a camera that fits in my pocket.

I'll hold off on making any final judgements until Sony sends a review unit to Engadget HQ. But, for now, I can tell you that the RX100 V's burst shooting mode is as good as it seems on paper. And you can't help but crack a smile when you listen to that shutter fire shot after shot in quick succession. The sample images we have here were taken at a studio in New York City, which Sony decked with different performers for members of the media to use as subjects.

We'll have more on the RX100 V soon. Stay tuned.
