Sony Malaysia has unveiled two new cameras and a plethora of other kit that include new lenses and grips intended for vloggers and other video content creators though the ultra compact RX0 II and the α6400 mirrorless camera took the limelight as the stars of the show today.
The Sony α6400 is an E-mount mirrorless camera that has a 24.2-inch APS-C Exmor CMOS image sensor and their latest-generation BIONZ X image processor with blazing fast 0.02 autofocus acquisition speed with 425 phase detection and contrast-detection autofocus points, real time eye autofocus and object tracking, 11fps continuous shooting and whisper silent 8fps shooting with continuous autofocus tracking.
Shots and 4K video are framed with the built-in XGA OLED Tru-finder viewfinder or the tilt-up 180-degree tiltable 3.0-inch 921-K dot touchscreen. The Sony α6400 is available nationwide with the body only for RM3,999. You can also acquire it with a kit lens for RM4,399.
If you’re keen on the whole VLOG experience, you can also purchase a vlogger-style shooting grip that screws into the bottom of the α6400 at a special price of RM199 when you purchase the α6400 camera or its other bundles.
Sony RX0 II
The successor to last year’s RX0, the RX0 II is an ultra compact camera with the dimensions of a matchbox but the ability to capture slick snaps, 4K 30p video and 1000fps super slow-mo footage on account of a 1.0-type stacked 15.3-MP image sensor that comes with their BIONZ X image processor and Exmor RS CMOS image sensor paired up with a Zeiss Tessar T 24mm F4 fixed wide-angle lens as well as in-body electronic stabilisation for judder free stills and footage.
Stills are given particularly special treatment as the RX0 II is capable of 16fps continuous shooting, sports an anti-distortion shutter up to 1/32000 seconds and enhanced algorithms for eye tracking and a ‘soft skin effect’ mode. To frame selfies, the camera has a tilt-up LCD which is rather surprising for something this compact. What seals the deal on top of its compact size and potential image quality is that the RX0 II is continues its predecessor’s sturdiness and it’s waterproof to 10 metres, dustproof, crushproof to 200kg and shockproof, making it a very handy addition to any vlogger’s ensemble. The RX0 II retails for RM2,799 and will arrive in May. You can also acquire a similarly sized shooting grip for the RX0 II vlogger style grip for RM199 with every purchase of the RX0 II.
