There’s a brand new entry into the weather sealed camera world today in the form of the Sony RX0–the company is finally listening to the public and putting a large sensor into a weather sealed body. The new camera, which is being announced today at IFA, seems to be a bit like a GoPro but also seems to be tackling larger premium point and shoot offerings. Besides weather sealing, the camera is waterproof, shockproof and creshproof. At the heart of it is a 1 inch 15.3MP Exmor CMOS image sensor with a 24mm f4 Zeiss lens. The camera can shoot at up to 1/32,000 and 16fps.
It will ship in October for $700; which is fair for the professional photographer that needs something like this. The full press release is below.
