When the Sony RX10 was released last year, it was lauded for its all-around prowess – specifically for its surprising video capabilities, making it quite a hit among run-and-gun videographers.
Fast forward a few months and 4K video capability has a tight grip on the consumer/prosumer market. It is a feature most now expect on compact system cameras, not just a luxury held for the more professional-centric offerings.
According to SonyAlphaRumors, Sony’s not keen to losing ground to the likes of Panasonic in this regard, who themselves have just released a 4K-ready superzoom in the FZ1000. As a counter, Sony is rumored to be announcing the Rx10’s successor next month, loading the Rx20 with the camera maker’s proprietary XAVC-S codec alongside 4K and 720/120p video.
Additionally, the RX20 is believed keep its predecessor’s form factor and original $1,300.00 price-point.
