Sony RX0 sensor review: Tiny and clever
Sony announced the RX0 in August 2017, and although many people assume it’s an action camera, it’s a bit more than that. It may have the rugged body that we expect from an action cam such as those in the GoPro Hero Black range, but inside is a 21Mp (15.3Mp effective) 1″-type sensor. Furthermore, Sony has used its stacked CMOS sensor design to help maximize the pixel size and boost the light-gathering potential for better image quality.
On the front of the RX0 is a ZEISS Tessar T* 24mm (equivalent) f/4 lens, and on the back there’s a 1.5″ (3.8cm) Clear Photo TFT LCD with 230,400 dots.
