Sony launched their latest RX10 into the market loaded with a 20.2MP with a back illuminated 1.0 inch CMOS sensor including a 24-200mm (35 mm equivalent) with F2.8 constant aperture zoom lens.
One of the best features in the new release is the Bionz X image processor that would provide pictures with the highest quality, the best ever from Sony. The sensor of the RX10 and Sony’s RX100 II remains the same. The 24-200 mm lens promises to provide a snappy F2.8 aperture in constant zoom range. The latest Bionz X processor would be 3x faster than the previous one. Area-specific noise reduction and details reproduction technology are the new features in the sensor including diffraction-reduction technologies. Sony promises to provide superior image quality with these improvements.
Other latest features in the RX10 is a new contrast-detection auto-focus system. To provide a speedy auto-processing experience, a Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonicwave Motor) have been included. A lock-on AF feature allows the camera to track an object in case of disappearance from the frame. The size of the AF frame can be altered by users and an updated “Eye AF” feature that can focus precisely on the eyes. Photos can be shot at 10 frames per second with constant auto-focus. A 3.0 inch tiltable LCD and a 1440k OLED True Finder is also included.
Users can also shoot full HD videos at 60p (AVCHD progressive) or 24p allowing users to tweak P/A/S/M exposure modes. The controls and settings can be customized in many ways to get the quality of DSLR. Additional features are a moisture and dust resistant camera, Wi-Fi, NFC (Near Feild Communication) and a solid magnesium alloy body which provides a solid build quality. The Sony Cybershot RX10 will be up for Sale for $1300, this November, pre-order open at Sony Online Store.
