Sony yesterday at an event in New Delhi unveiled the RX100 Cyber-shot digital camera. Sony says the new camera is a step-up from the usual point-and-shoot cameras and integrates lots of features found in its professional Alpha range of cameras.
The pocket-sized RX100 is the world’s first camera to use 1.0-type Exmor CMOS sensor that can capture images at a resolution of up to 20.2 megapixels. The sensor is said to be four times larger than the 1/2.3-type sensors that allows to capture more light, enabling better and low noise quality pictures in low-light situations.
Additionally, the camera is equipped with BIONZ imaging processor, Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 3.6x optical zoom, burst photos at up to 10 frames per second, full HD video recording support, full manual control, a control ring around the lens body just as you have on a DSLR and lots of picture effects to enhance the images.
