For far too long have we carted around cameras as if they were worth their weight in gold. Fortunately, we can gradually let go of that mentality thanks to technological advances. The Sony RX0 II Camera, for instance, takes the ruggedness and ultra portability of an action cam and merges it with the all-around versatility of a high-end compact camera.
Equipped with a Zeiss Tessar 24mm (equivalent) F4 lens, 1-inch type EXMOR CMOS sensor, 180-degree tilting screen, enhanced image stabilization, and 4K video, the Sony RX0 II is more than a capable point-and-shoot. Yet with up to 1000 fps super slow motion, super compact 59mm x 40.5mm x 35mm form factor, mere 132 grams in weight, and water- and crush-proofing, it’s also a powerhouse of an action cam.
So go out and shoot, and don’t fret if you accidentally drop the Sony RX0 II on the ground or in the water, and feel free to sit on it (or let your dog sit on it, as long as he weighs less than 471 pounds).
