With the latest firmware upgrade Sony RX10 allows you to record videos in XAVC S codec with at a bit rate of 50Mbps, so finally you have to get a SDXC card to record super high quality videos from Sony RX10.
it’s not Rocket science – Reason is very simple – People will not buy the overpriced product with old sensor and image processor.
Before the announcement when I heard that Fuji X30 is coming with the same sensor and image processor, my first reaction was “No Way… at least Fuji will not do this (read the post here)”, but unfortunately the Fuji X30 finally arrived with the same image processor and sensor ….and as a result on the first day of announcement it scored only 71th rank in the best seller of point and shoot camera category at Amazon and just after few hours people kicked X30 out of 100… however Sony RX100 M3 (Amazon) is still under Top 10 best selling point and shoot camera of the world.
Reason behind the Failure
1. The Major Core Specification of Fuji X30 and X20 are Same
The major cores specification of Fuji X30 is same as X30 – the Sensor and image processor is same and hence you will get same image quality as of its predecessor – see the detailed specification comparison review
2. Fuji must understand that there are many better alternatives available.. at same or lower price tag
Fuji X30 look overpriced when you see cameras like Sony RX100, plus better alternatives are also available with bit extra cost.
The QX30 lens spotted at the Korea Radio Research Laboratory, the QX1 and QX30 is rumored to announce on the same day – Sep, 3 2014.
Finally it’s look like Sony international websites are also preparing for QX1 launch on Sep 3, as you can see from the snapshot above, A page of Sony international (sonymobile.com) website with title Sony QX1 is surfaced at google search result, however it’s URL and the page contains information about the QX100 lens .. it’s also possible that page caption is just a typo error by a Sony staff.
Sony upcoming Lens module QX1 is rumored to carry APS-C sensor inside it and its size is similar to current Sony QX100 lens module, the price is expected to remain same as of QX100 (see at Amazon | B&H).
Although we are still bit confused since the QX-1 features (it’s compact or interchangeable lens module system ), since the chinese website ZOL.com is saying it is compatible with E-mount lenses, things will soon become more clear as we get more specification and images…final announcement date is September 3, 2014.
