The RX100 VA is a quiet upgrade to the now discontinued RX100 V. The Va version gets the processor from the RX100 VI and some firmware upgrades that enhance the abilities of the camera.

This essentially means with a new processor the Eye-AF performance is much more solid. In addition the camera has:
• Three Auto White-Balance Modes (standard, ambiance and white)
• Larger Buffer for continuous shooting (233 images)
• Proxy Video Recording (create a 720p file along-side a 4k)
• Zone Area Autofocus
• Variable Size Spot Metering
• Add ratings to images

Though it got the processor from the RX100 VI, there’s still no HLG gamma, S-Log3 for video. The tilt screen only tilts 45° instead of 90. The viewfinder is the same from the V and there is no touchscreen as we have on the VI.
