Sony to Release the new RX0

This looks like an interesting new camera from Sony. Sporting a Zeiss lens and 960 fps in 1080p

Or 1000fps in PAL mode ;) Full spec page here:
https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/cybe ... ifications
There's a table on the page that gives a bit more detail:
Sensor Readout Number of effective pixels
Quality Priority:240fps/250fps(1,676x942),
480fps/500fps(1,676x566),
960fps/1000fps(1,136x384)
Shoot Time Priority:240fps/250fps(1,676x566),
480fps/500fps(1,136x384),
960fps/1000fps(800x270)

If I read that right the output at 1000fps will be 1080p, but the camera will not have captures all the pixels on it's CCD to produce that.

It does seem to be a lot of camera in a small box - but it ought to be for $700 (source CNET) - that's nearly double the Hero 5 black ($399).
Intel Core i7 860 - 8GB DDR3 RAM - 250GB Evo 850 SSD - 2x1TB HDD - RX 480 - Asus P7P55D - Win10 64 bit - Cannon HV30 (PAL) - Nex5N - GoPro 3 Black

From CNET.com:

Leveraging the still and video technologies from its latest RX100 series of cameras to create the RX0. It's a model for videographers and still photographers.


Notably, it includes:

Sony's 15.3-megapixel, 1-inch Exmor RS CMOS sensor, which is bigger and more light-sensitive than the 1/2.3-inch version used by GoPro.
A Zeiss f4 T* lens (T* are the better class of Zeiss' with the higher-end coatings), with a narrower field of view than most action cameras. The AOV is necessarily narrower because of the larger sensor (It's 24mm in 35mm terms, about the same as most dSLR/mirrorless kit lenses at their widest) but it also means the footage will have a different feel than typical ultrawide-angle action cam footage.
Video-friendly features such as Sony's Picture Profiles, which control the dynamic-range characteristics of the video, including an S-Log2 profile for more flexible grading, as well as supporting time code/user-bit and clean HDMI out.
The ability to shoot high-resolution stills, including raw, plus up to 16 fps burst mode with fixed exposure and focus (5.5fps with continuous). It supports a shutter speed as slow as 1/4 second, the Adobe RGB color space and high frame-rate capture up to 1,000fps (at 800x720 pixels) for super slow-motion capture. Plus it has Sony's Creative Style picture adjustments, face detection and multiple focus modes.
It has a 3.5mm mic jack for higher-quality audio recording.
It's designed to work with an optional wireless radio (FA-WRC1M) that can trigger up to 15 RX0's simultaneously, and in January is slated for a firmware update that will allow for connecting and controlling even more via a Wi-Fi access point.

$700 seems a bit pricey but from the advertising I have seen it looks like the sensor is bigger and the lens is also better. A Ziess+ and looks like it is not going to have as much of a fisheye effect. It will be interesting to see the reviews once it is released. But if it compares to the RX cameras then might be a cool buy. The ad says it is targeted to GoPro users who are looking for something better....

More of the new Camera. 1" sensor same sensor as RXII 5 series. But I liked the behind the scenes to see how they make the video.



more specs

I paid about $3000 for my first Sony Hi 8 video camera and it's now worth zero.

Electronics are always a sinkhole in terms of money. There is some truth in only purchasing last years new model. It is a lot easier on the pocketbook.

Moor'e's Law has been pretty consistent for understanding the ebb and flow of technology.

Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. The observation is named after Gordon Moore, the co-founder of Fairchild Semiconductor and Intel, whose 1965 paper described a doubling every year in the number of components per integrated circuit, and projected this rate of growth would continue for at least another decade. In 1975,looking forward to the next decade,he revised the forecast to doubling every two years.The period is often quoted as 18 months because of Intel executive David House, who predicted that chip performance would double every 18 months (being a combination of the effect of more transistors and the transistors being faster).
