Design

1.is dustproof and water-resistant
Sony RX0 II
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sony RX0 II
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.has a touch screen
Sony RX0 II
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
4.weight

132g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Sony RX0 II
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.screen size

1.5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.has a 24p cinema mode
Sony RX0 II
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
3.supports slow-motion video recording
Sony RX0 II
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Sony RX0 II
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
5.Has timelapse function
Sony RX0 II
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
6.has a serial shot mode
Sony RX0 II
The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.

Optics

1.megapixels (main camera)

15.3MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.has a BSI sensor
Sony RX0 II
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
3.has manual ISO
Sony RX0 II
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
4.has built-in optical image stabilization
Sony RX0 II
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
5.has manual exposure
Sony RX0 II
This allows to manually set the exposure.
6.has a CMOS sensor
Sony RX0 II
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
Sony RX0 II
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
2.has a stereo microphone
Sony RX0 II
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.Has a zoom microphone
Sony RX0 II
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
4.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Sony RX0 II
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.has stereo speakers
Sony RX0 II
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Battery

1.has a removable battery
Sony RX0 II
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
2.has an external memory slot
Sony RX0 II
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
3.has a battery level indicator
Sony RX0 II
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Sony RX0 II
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.has GPS
Sony RX0 II
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
2.Is compatible with Android
Sony RX0 II
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
3.supports Wi-Fi
Sony RX0 II
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
4.has an HDMI output
Sony RX0 II
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
5.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Sony RX0 II
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.Has a remote control
Sony RX0 II
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.

Miscellaneous

1.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Sony RX0 II
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
2.widest aperture at maximum focal length

4f

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
3.Has a tilting viewfinder
Sony RX0 II
With a tilting viewfinder you have more flexibility with the position of your camera when taking a shot.
4.Has dual card slots
Sony RX0 II
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
5.maximum operating temperature

40°C

The maximum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.
6.Maximum electronic shutter speed

0s

An electronic shutter uses the signals of the imaging sensor instead of mechanical shutter curtains. With no moving parts, an electronic shutter is completely silent and eliminates the risk of image blur caused by vibrations.
