Sony RX0 II: tiny action camera now gets a selfie screen

Sony RX0 II

Sony's super compact ruggedized action camera gets a radical update with the arrival of the RX0 II. The crucial difference between this waterproof camera from its predecessor is the addition with a fold-up 'selfie' screen – which will appeal to vloggers and for those creating a family album. It's expensive compared to its rivals, but the RX0 II could be the best action camera for overall image quality, as well as being the luxury choice as the best selfie camera.

The main specification of the RX0 II (or the DSC-RX0M2 to give it its full model number) otherwise stays much the same. The 15.3MP one-inch sensor is designed to offer 4K video shooting. The lens is a fixed Zeiss Tessar 7.9mm - which gives the equivalent wide-angle focal length of 24mm.
