Sony RX0 II Premium Compact Action Camera
Sony has announced the launch of the latest addition to the popular compact camera range, the Sony RX0 II, which the Firm claims is the”world’s Lightest and Smallest ultra-premium compact camera”.
This activity camera is the successor to the Sony RX0 and it measures only 59mm x 40.5mm x 35mm while weighing 132 g, making it very light and pocketable.
The Sony RX0 II sports a 1.0-type piled 15.3-megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and an innovative BIONZ X image processing engine which provides enhanced color reproduction including exquisite skin tones. The detector is said to be extremely sensitive to light with ISO ranging from 80-12,800, that will aid in producing excellent photos and videos. There’s also a stationary wide-angle ZEISSTessar T 24mm lens using f/4.0 aperture, that aids in achieving a shortened minimal focusing distance of 20cm, which makes it perfect for selfies or table-top photos.
Launched globally back in March, the Sony RX0 II was priced worldwide at $700 (roughly Rs. 48,000). Unlike its predecessor, the Sony RX0, the RX0 II can shoot videos at up to 4K 30p with complete pixel readout without a pixel binning to collect approximately 1.7 times the amount of information required for 4K video.
The Sony RX0 II camera also introduces in-body digital stabilisation for steady footage, even if taken handheld. Users are also delighted that the camera can shoot S-Log2 format, which will give a lot of creative freedom from post-processing. Concerning photography prowess, the RX0 II boasts an Anti-distortion Shutter of around 1/32000 sec that can shoot up to 16fps. There is Sony’s Eye AF that helps in capturing magnificent portraits and selfies.
Additionally, Sony RX0 II users will also be able to control up to 50 cameras through an access point (scheduled for Summer 2019), utilizing Sony’Imaging Edge Mobile’ program or up to 100 cameras using the Camera Control Box CCB-WD1, making it the perfect action camera for vloggers.
The Sony RX0 II has already been priced in Rs. 57,990 and will be available for sale starting July 15 via all Sony Center, Alpha Flagship stores, Sony authorised retailers and leading electronic stores across India.
