Sony introduces RX0, an action camera that is a class above of all current action cameras in the market. I don’t even think it is fair to compare it with the latest GoPro HERO5 Black.
First of all, it has a hefty price tag. At USD699.99, I think it is the most expensive action camera in the market. However, there are a few things that would let many rushes to buy it: –
- 1.0-type (13.2mm x 8.8mm) Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor, aspect ratio 3:2
- ZEISS Tessar T* 24mm lens with F4.0 aperture
- WATERPROOF (IPX8 equivalent)
- SHOCKPROOF (2.0m/6.5ft MIL-STD810G C1 Method516.7-Shock)
- CRUSHPROOF (200kgf/2000N/440lbf)
- Various movie functions for pro-style quality — S-log2 gamma setting / 4K8 Clean HDMI output
- Up to 960fps/1000fps6 super slow motion5
- Weight: 110 grams
- DIMENSIONS (W X H X D): 59.0×40.5×29.8 mm(2 3/8 in. × 1 5/8 in. × 1 3/16 in.)
So, if you compare it with a tradition action camera, this RX0 is way above them (including the price). It will be available in October (not sure if Singapore will get it during October period or not).
Looking at the accessories, I think Sony is giving a better options for filmmaking to explore new angles without losing quality.
