Sony has announced the tiny RX0

It might look like a GoPro competitor but it is that and MUCH more -

Headline features RX0-

  • Outputs 4:2:2 UHD 4K Video via HDMI (records 1080p60 internally)
  • Ultra-Compact, waterproof (10-meter depth) and shockproof body
  • 20MP 1" Stacked CMOS Sensor (double the size of a GoPro sensor)

  • Timecode-Sync Multiple Cameras
  • Control via App or VP1K Remote
  • Preorders start September 5th - $699 from B&H Photo

Sure it looks like a GoPro and comes in a rugged, waterproof housing - additional housing available for deeper than 10-meters, but the 4K out via HDMI, the Timecode-Sync and control of multiple units through the app or Remote means this is really focused on VR and multi camera setups in a variety of conditions. Maybe under a drone or mounted to multiple points on a rally car, or on your scuba mask… the options are endless and with that larger sensor and a higher quality lens - we should see some beautiful footage out of this camera.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 MK III
