DXO: Sony RX0 Compared


The Sony RX0 is an incredibly specialized camera for professionals, but until now, it’s only been vaguely compared to its rivals. Now that DXO has benchmarked the Sony RX0 we can see how well it performs and it easily bests the competition and keeps up with early Sony RX100 cameras. The Sony RX0 is an impressive compact option.

“Sony is aiming the RX0 at professional photographers who need a small rugged camera for specific projects. It’s not really intended to be fitted to a ski helmet or mounted on bike handlebars, though it’s clear that it outperforms one of the most popular action cams around. In fact, it’s a strong competitor against high-end compacts with the same size sensor. However, it offers a far superior range of video features in a tough body.

In terms of image quality, the greatest differential between the RX0 and the cameras we’ve pitched it against is the color depth in the lower-middle sensitivity range. Even then, there’s little chance of it being noticeable in images captured under the same conditions.”
