want a digital shooter with DSLR-style creative power, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of changing lenses? then the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Camera could be the perfect “in-between” camera for you. in fact, Sony is terming this newest addition to the RX lineup as “premium bridge camera” which is pretty self-explanatory of what are to expect of the price and performance. at the heart of the RX10 camera is a 20.2MP BSI Exmor R CMOS sensor, paired to the new BIONZ X image processor as found in several recent Sony shooters such as the a7 Full-Frame camera. on the optical aspect, it has a non-interchangeable Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm zoom lens with f2.8 aperture, available at all focal lengths and an optical zoom capability of 8.3x.
other highlights include Direct Drive SSM mechanism for fast and response (and quiet) autofocus, Full HD video recording at 60p/25p with PASM control and pro-style XLR input for external microphone, a new 1440k dot OLED Tru-Finder, a 3.0-inch tilting LCD, 4K photo output, and support for Sony’s TRILUMINOS display. this shooter also features onboard WiFi sharing of stills wirelessly on your mobile device, or viewing on your HDTV, while built-in NFC allows for one-touch connection with your Xperia or NFC-compatible Android smartphone or tablet. the Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Camera is available now for a rather hefty $1,298 (£1,049.00 in the UK, and S$1,599 in Singapore, including tax). more look after the break.
