While the Alpha 7 and 7R rightly got all the attention at a recent Sony launch in Singapore, what also caught the eye was the RX10.
It’s the first bridge camera – fitting between a big digital SLR and compact point-and-shoot – with a constant aperture of f2.8 throughout its zoom range.
That comes in handy for photographers who appreciate the convenience of using one versatile lens, particularly for holiday shots.
The RX10 sports a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm/2.8 lens, which adds to the convenient all in-one-package.
It also has the BionzX image processor, Wi-Fi sharing and the OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder used in the more expensive Alpha 7 and 7R.
When it comes to capturing images, the one-inch 20.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor is the same used in the earlier RX100 II compact camera.
And cost? The RX10 is going for S$1,599 in Singapore.
