The Sony RX100 official details have dropped, revealing the new 20.2MP compact camera with a much larger sensor than other compact zoom cameras around.
The 1-inch CMOS image sensor is the same size as the Nikon 1 Series interchangeable lens models. The fixed zoom lens provides 28-100mm equivalent zoom range with a max f/1.8 aperture.
The RX100 sports AVCHD 2.0 video capture at full 1080/60p at 28Mbps data rates. The sensitivity ranges up to ISO 6400 for low light capture, or up to ISO 25600 using a multiframe capture feature.
The Sony RX100 retails for $650 and should be available in July 2012. Check availability at B&H Photo.
