1 Comment

Sony is going to release the high-spec 8.3X optical zoom Cybershot camera RX10 on Nov 15. It features a 1-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor (20.2 million effective pixels) and 24-200mm (eq.) f/2.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens, which covers taking many different scenes of telephoto and close-up photos. Fourteen elements in 11 groups including 7 aspheric elements maintain high-resolutions.

It also includes the same BIONZ X image processor as the "α7" and "α7R" which improves autofocus and reduces noise. It has up to ISO 12800 sensitivity and it's compatible with Wi-Fi and NFC functions. The newly developed OLED Tru-Finder featuring organic EL was used for the finder giving it a high level of visibility. It has a tiltable 3.0 inch display with 12.29 million dots.

Price: About 130,000 yen Size: 129.0x88.1x102.2mm Weight: 755g (Only the body)

Great. If the price was even remotely reasonable. For that much money (and the weight) you might as well either get an entry-ish DSLR or a mirrorless, even if you are a beginner. The 1" sensor is very nice I'll admit, and the combination of the big-ish sensor with long zoom could be tempting for some people, but those people don't want to spend more than maybe 50,000.
