Sony simply introduced a brand new digicam known as the RX0, however breaking from the development of decrease quantity = fancier digicam, this one is a tiny machine that mixes an action-cam type issue with some conventional imaging prowess. It’s an uncommon mixture, but someway tempting.
The waterproof, shockproof RX0 has a 1-inch, 15-megapixel (cropped down from 21) sensor and a 24mm-equivalent F/four lens, which proper off the bat differentiates it from GoPro cameras, which typically have smaller sensors with super-wide-angle, comparatively sluggish glass in entrance. But it surely lacks a zoom and most of the different helpful options of a pocket digicam just like the RX100. So that you’re not going to be strolling round taking snapshots with this factor.
Evidently the RX0 is being put forth as a type of modular system for videographers who want the ruggedness and flexibility of a GoPro however need a bit extra management and constancy. B cameras on set and outdoors (relying on the picture high quality), capturing from a number of angles (a number of RX0s can sync collectively), tremendous slow-mo footage (it goes as much as 960 FPS), and so forth.
Whereas its $700 price ticket is likely to be a bit a lot for individuals who simply need a digicam to connect to their bike or surfboard, there are many individuals who would go for the RX0 as an alternative of a GoPro.
It’s an odd little machine, little question, however the extra I give it some thought, the extra I really feel I’d desire it for non-traditional duties. It’ll be obtainable in October.
