Last year, Sony relaunched its action camera line by launching the RX0 at CES 2018. A year later, the company released a follow-up called the RX0 II, which has enhanced features and features such as a flip-up LCD feature. Display, internal 4K video recording, stability, and much more. The camera is priced at $ 700 (approximately Rs. 48,270), and will be available from April.
The Sony RX0 II has a 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor with a lower resolution of 15.3-megapixels than last year’s model. It has a 24mm fixed wide-angle lens with an f / 4 aperture and a minimum focusing distance of 20cm, which Sony claims is good enough for selfies and table-top photos. It measures just 59×40.5x35mm, weighs 132 grams and is water resistant, dust resistant, shockproof and crashproof up to 10 meters deep.
Unlike previous versions, the Sony RX0 II can now record up to 30fps of internal 4K video, including oversampling, which means one can expect smooth and rich quality output. Also for the first time there is in-body electronic image stabilization. Thanks to the stacked sensor, the camera can also record super slow motion video in small bursts up to 1000fps.
One of the biggest features missing in any other action camera is the presence of a 180-degree tilting LCD display, which makes it a great tool for vlogging or simply taking your selfie. The display can also be tilted 90 degrees downwards but it still lacks touch input as there are physical buttons around the display to navigate through the menus.
In addition to the video, the RX0 II has an anti-disturbance shutter up to 1 / 32,000 seconds and is capable of taking 16fps continuous shots. The camera also has optical filters such as a soft skin effect and the IAF has been upgraded for better portrait shots. Just like before, the camera still supports uncompressed 4K output via HDMI, picture profile support such as S-Log2 and time code function.
