Sony just announced 2 new cameras. No wait, they just release another 3. It’s getting hard to keep track, let’s look at it slowly:
After the Sony A99 full frame DSLR, and the NEX-VG900 full frame large sensor camera, Sony went on to release the NEX-VG30 that is the direct successor to the NEX-VG20 (released last year).
Remember our Sony HX9v review where we called the HX9v “almost the ultimate run & gun camera”? Well the RX100 seems to be Sony’s ultimate answer for the action-camera-philes…
That pretty much sums up Andrew’s opinion:
The RX100 is a camera that fits in your jeans pocket. Would I consider intercutting RX100 footage with 1080p from a pro Super 35mm cinema camera? Yes I would.
(…) If you haven’t yet entered the DSLR video world, the RX100 is capable of similar results in video mode and even a similar standard of stills. This is amazing and I cannot believe we’re talking about a pocket camera.
