Return to travel stories with the equipment you borrowed. This time with Sony RX0 mark II. This machine is a continuation with quite expensive upgrades compared to its predecessor. Its small body will make people enjoy it when they first meet. However, contrary to that smallness, inside is a very "very" configuration when equipped with sensors up to 1 inch, Zeiss 24mm F4 lens (converted), the screen can be overturned. to selfie or break down when lifting the machine above the head.
My trip this time to a place famous for "which couple is up there, going back most will break up".
Since this eyebrow is directed to those who do Vlog, I will skip keeping the original image because everyone now has a few original photos and then uploads them all. My photos using Lightroom to edit and resize, add watermarking via Photoshop
First of all, many of you are most interested in image quality. Maybe you are interested in many different lighting conditions, but for me, it is only bright and lack of light (more or less). I let the capture mode automatically.
Shoot in a bright enough environment
Good! The image will be somewhat pale because I'm still post-production before uploading. Therefore it is not important whether or not it is important to fix it. I confirm that many users can edit only JPG because Lightroom does not support RAW images at the time of writing. Anyway, a camera will be different from a phone, especially the device's sensor up to 1 "in size.
The aperture of F4 is a big thing you have to think about the ability to remove fonts. Don't expect much. If taking portraits, I think the phone in the same price range will do it much better because the phone's algorithm now handles more deleting fonts than before.
Shoot in low light conditions
This is also an important thing when choosing to buy. I do not appreciate RX0M2 in this ability. First of all, it is because the slowest shutter speed in Manual mode is only 1 / 4s, if you want to take a photo or take a streak of light, then forget that.
The second disadvantage of the low light shooting is that the camera does not have optical vibration protection. This makes the shutter speed somewhat limited, resulting in the machine having to push the ISO up high. But because the sensor is large, the ability to handle noise is also good.
Third, also the aperture F4. The aperture can not open much and the speed cannot be reduced. Obviously, ISO will automatically be increased if you do not want to see a black with speckled and lamp detail.
How to use it?
From the moment I took the phone, I thought of this first because it was so small, would Sony be able to make it difficult for me to use it?
Not difficult but complicated
Why do you say that? I have no difficulty in holding, manipulating, shooting. Even more, the ability to flip for the rear screen makes it even easier to capture and shoot in difficult angles. Like taking top-down or high-angle shots, flip the screen back, and if the low angle is turned upside down, still selfie or turn it on yourself. This point, whoever filmed Vlog will understand.
If you compare it to a wide angle, it is not possible with GoPro, but the image quality is better. Thanks to the big sensor and Zeiss lens, I still think RX0M2 is a camera, and GoPro is an Action-cam. Should have money I will buy both.
Due to the compact, non-touch screen use, the operation must use small buttons entirely. I took quite a bit of time to get used to it and it was not convenient to switch between shooting and shooting modes.
And still like other Sony devices, they always make products with very high level of perfection. Extremely rugged grip and superior feel. If any of you have the chance to try it, you will see how good the Sony RX0M2 is.
The screen is small but when it is sunny, it can still be seen. The brightness can be customized to the rice, not the sensor to do it yourself.
Sony this year paid great attention to the Vlogger friends from the A6400 release to RX0M2 (inviting many famous Vlogger friends to launch the event). The device is also equipped with S-Log, support 4K recording directly to the memory card (previous life must be exported via HDMI), better software anti-shake (after RX0M2 handles, you can also copy the phone Let me fight again with my software, but I have to do this on my phone.). Still lack the headphone jack like the A6000 and the device does not support continuous focus but must use "tracking" mode.
Small point but quite convenient is that the machine has holes to attach a tripod like a camera. If using Gopro but forget to bring accessories, it is determined to lose.
I shot from morning with quite intensity, then at noon I ran out of battery. But don't worry too much because you can just charge and use it.
In short, RX0M2 is still an extremely compact and handy camera with good image quality. If you like to experience new things, like to have a compact camera with you always, don't be afraid to approach every time you shoot or shoot and plenty of extra, this is a very worthwhile choice.
