Sony has announced the launch of the latest addition to its popular compact camera range, the Sony RX0 II, which the company claims is the "world's smallest and lightest ultra-premium compact camera". This action camera is the successor to the Sony RX0 and it measures just 59mm x 40.5mm x 35mm while weighing 132 grams, making it very light and pocketable. But don't let the size fool you as this new compact camera is packed to the brim with features and sports a 180-degree tiltable screen in a waterproof (IPX8), dustproof (IP6X), shockproof (from drops up to 2 metres), and crushproof (up to 200kg force) form-factor.
The Sony RX0 II sports a 1.0-type stacked 15.3-megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and an advanced BIONZ X image processing engine that offers enhanced colour reproduction including beautiful skin tones. The sensor is said to be extremely sensitive to light with ISO ranging from 80-12,800, that will help in producing excellent photos and videos. There's also a fixed wide-angle ZEISS Tessar T 24mm lens with f/4.0 aperture, that helps in achieving a shortened minimum focusing distance of 20cm, which makes it perfect for selfies or table-top photos.
