GoPro, you’ve got yourself a new competition in the form of Sony’s latest ultra-compact camera, the new RX0 1.0.

The new model, which was announced last August 2017, packs a 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and wide-angle ZEISS T* 24mm, equivalent to a 35mm lens.


It has more things up its sleeve – it features anti-distortion shutter up to 1/32000 super-high-speed shutter, up to 15fps continuous shooting without blackout, up to 1000fps super slow motion and S-log2 gamma setting / 4K clean HDMI output.

Apart from all the technical aspects that RX0 offers, it has other useful build features that suit that need of adventurers and content creators such as water proof, shoot proof and crush proof. These features make it standout compared to its nearest competitor, the GoPro Hero 6, which was recently announced.

It’s a tad pricier than GoPro Hero 5, which currently sells for around PhP18,000 in our country. Once Hero 6 becomes available, price will fall around PhP23k to PhP25k, which is way cheaper than the $699 price tag of RX0.
