Sony had a pretty successful RX-series of RAWsumers, case in point, as you can see at the Fixed Lens Cameras Price Chart all models continue to be available in new condition at authorized dealers!
So it should not be a surprise that Sony would decide to further expand the RX-series.
Which brings us to the new brand new RX0, an ultra-compact elementproof camera but with a 1-inch 21mp sensor, and a 24mm f4 Zeiss-blessed lens, RAW of course (it wouldn’t be an RX-series without RAW!), and various tempting video features. And an RX-series starting price of $700.
In new-typical Sony fashion, pre-orders are not accepted right away. It will be available for pre-ordering on September 5, 2017.
But there are detailed pages for it at B&H Photo and Adorama.
This has been added to the New Cameras of 2017 tracking page, making it the fifth RAWsumer to be introduced in 2017. Try to guess the other four before looking. But we don’t have fabulous prizes if you guess right 🙂

GoPRO is no longer the only game in town when it comes to action cameras. YI technology (apparently action cameras hate long brand names mayhaps because there’s not a lot of space on the compact devices to write them on) is generating some buzz with their models, and at the moment, they have a combined purchase coupon and a freebie as well.

Here are the steps:
* start at the YI 4K+ Action Camera product page; page down until you…
* … locate the offer that says “Receive 1 Floating Grip free” (you will receive one FREE YI Floating Grip (randomly chosen color)
* hit the yellow “Add Both to Cart”
* if you don’t want the Gimbal, that’s it, proceed to checkout
* if you also want the Gimbal at 50% off, add the YI Gimbal 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer to the shopping cart and enter coupon code YIGIMBAL
* the coupon cuts the price of the Gimbal from $200 to $100
* your total is $340 (Action Cam) + $100 (Gimbal after coupon) = $440
