Sony just introduced a new digicam known as the RX0, however breaking from the trend of lessen quantity = fancier camera, this one is a tiny equipment that combines an action-cam form factor with some natural imaging prowess. It’s an unusual mixture, yet by some means tempting.
The water-proof, shockproof RX0 has a 1-inch, 15-megapixel (cropped down from 21) sensor and a 24mm-equal F/four lens, which correct off the bat differentiates it from GoPro cameras, which often have smaller sensors with super-broad-angle, highly gradual glass in front. nonetheless it lacks a zoom and a lot of of the other effective facets of a pocket digicam just like the RX100. so you’re now not going to be strolling around taking snapshots with this component.
It seems that the RX0 is being put forth as a sort of modular system for videographers who want the ruggedness and versatility of a GoPro but need slightly more manage and fidelity. B cameras on set and out of doors (reckoning on the photo exceptional), taking pictures from distinct angles (assorted RX0s can sync collectively), super slow-mo photos (it goes up to 960 FPS), etc.
whereas its $ seven hundred cost tag might be a bit much for americans who just need a camera to attach to their bike or surfboard, there are a lot of people who would select the RX0 as an alternative of a GoPro.
It’s an peculiar little gadget, little doubt, but the extra I think about it, the extra I suppose I’d choose it for non-normal obligations. It’ll be attainable in October.
