Sony Newer Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 decided to wishes to add yet another metric to that perpetual arms race that is sensor size. Chiefly it possesses 20.2-megapixel 13.2 x 8.8mm Exmor CMOS sensor, which Sony claims is four times larger than those normally available in point-and-shoot cameras.
According to the company it is the most advanced point-and-shoot it has ever released. This Exmos sensor is backed by an f/1.8 Carl-Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with a 3.6x optical zoom, a 120 to 25,600 ISO range, and a battery that will reportedly last for about 330 shots. The camera is legitimately solid, measuring in at 4 x 2.4 x 1.4 inches and weighing just less than half a pound at 7.5 ounces. It offers a 3-inch, 1,229k dot LCD display bolstered by Sony’s WhiteMagic technology. Even the LCD gives a bright, accurate preview of the scenes in the bright and sunny day.
The DSC-RX100 brags some of the special shooting modes we saw on the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 and NEX-F3, comprising auto portrait framing and Sony’s clear image zoom that uses an internal database to “fill in” missing pixels, in an attempt to generate clear, full-resolution zoom images. Also the DSC-RX100 will be able to capture RAW images (in addition to JPEGs), and shoot 1920 x 1080 AVCHD and MP4 video. The camera is scheduled to be up for grabs in July for $649.
