Editor’s Note: We’ve corrected the title and specs

If we really had to take a stab at what would be placed in between the Sony RX1 and RX100 series of cameras, we would’ve thought that it would be some sort of APS-C compact camera since the company already has a 1 inch and full frame sensor compact. But instead, the RX10 is something we would never even have dreamed of. The camera boasts the same 1 inch sensor in the RX100 Mk II but includes a fixed 24-200mm f2.8 constant aperture zoom lens. But besides large sensor, fantastic zoom range and DSLR like body style, the company is also announcing some very interesting technology with the camera for the video crowd.

Instead of recording video via line-skipping, the RX10 will record video using output from every single pixel–and that should also greatly fix most problems that occur when shooting video. In fact, during our presentation on the camera the company really emphasized just how much they’re going to try to push this towards the video crowd. Indeed, it would be an excellent news/documentary camera providing you can fork over the $1199 for it.

Otherwise, there is 60p, 24p, a 3 inch LCD screen, and the new BIONZ X processor. More specs and images are after the jump.
