Sony just recently revealed and announced the so-called “new type of camera”. Yes, you heard it right, but is it really a new type of camera? Well, whatever the type is, here are the 10 reasons why the Sony RX0 is the new type of camera:
With a size like an action camera, it offers high-end photo and video output. It measures 2.38×1.63×1.19″ (61×40.6×30.5mm) and weighs just 3.9 oz (110.6 g).
The Sony RX0 camera has a 15.3-megapixel 1-inch Exmor RS CMOS sensor with a maximum ISO of 12,800 that is paired with a BIONZ X processor that made this camera unique. One feature that this camera should be proud of is its ability to produce RAW still photos.
Unlike any other action camera, the RX0 by default is waterproof for few meters. I can go as deep as 33ft/10m if the waterproof case will be attached.
Yes, the RX0 is now shockproof that it can withstand falling off the ground from forces up to 440lb/200kg.
- Advanced Camera Features
The camera’s lens is a ZEISS Tessar T* 24mm f/4 that has the maximum shutter speed of 1/32000 with an Anti-Distortion Shutter. It can also shoot up to 16 frames per second and the focus and exposure settings are fixed after the very first shot (I really find it as an advantage).
- HD Video Output + 4K HDMI Video Output
Best for content creators with the 4K HDMI Video output. The RX0 packs 1080p60 video. It also includes super slow motion for up to 960 fps, MF assist and Peaking, Preset Focus Options, Picture Profile options, S-Log2, and Time Code/User-Bit Features.
- Connect Multiple RX0’s for Bullet-Time, Time-slice and more
Connecting multiple RX0’s now made possible with the use of Sony FA-WRC1M wireless radio commander that can trigger up to 15 RX0s’ to be connected at the same time and Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile App lets you trigger up to 5 RX0’s at the same time using a smartphone or a tablet.
Actually, I have been looking for a camera to replace the iPhone for my vlogging needs. I am considering this one as an option aside from the DSLR cameraI am planning to purchase.
