The rumor mill has unearthed more details about the Sony RX10, a fixed-lens camera that will be placed between the RX1 and RX100.
The beginning of 2013 has come with a curious interview from a Sony executive, who has claimed that there is plenty of space between its two higher-end fixed-lens cameras: the RX1 and RX100.
At that time, people have begun speculating that the device might be called RX10 and that it may come packed with awesome features, such as an APS-C sensor.
Many months have passed since then, but the rumor mill has eventually returned with more details, claiming that the camera will be introduced along with the A7 and A7R full frame E-mount shooters.
Sony RX10 specs leaked hours before official announcement
Unfortunately, the details have been rather scarce, as the company has done all its best to keep the project as secret as possible.
Well, here we are, less than a day before the official announcement and some Sony RX10 specs have been leaked on the web.
Sources are reporting that the device will be positioned between the RX1 and RX100 indeed. However, it will not feature an APS-C-sized sensor, as the company has chosen a 1-inch-type model.
Furthermore, the sensor appears to be identical to that of the RX100 II, capable of capturing photos at 20.2-megapixel.
Sony to provide amazing 24-200mm f/2.8 lens for RX10 users
The same sensor size for a more expensive camera could be a major bummer for a lot of customers. Thankfully, Sony is planning to amend things with the addition of a 24-200mm f/2.8 lens.
The optic will maintain its maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the focal range, which is an impressive accomplishment,
Sony RX10’s lens will not be collapsible therefore opening the possibility of adding an aperture ring with two custom features, one with support for a smooth change and the other one with support for clicking steps.
RX10 coming on October 16 along with A7 and A7R full frame E-mount cameras
The Japanese manufacturer will introduce the RX10 on October 16, as stated above, during the same event as that that will launch the A7 and A7R NEX-FF cameras.
This means that there are only a few hours left to wait and everything will become official. This is why you should stay tuned to Camyx and find out all the details.
