The Sony RX0 II came in 2019 and three years later it is still a great, nigh-invulnerable, action cam that can produce excellent 4K video and stills.
The one unique feature that one can immediately fell in love with is the pullout LCD screen that can tilt up to 180 degrees for use as a selfie cam. The Eye Autofocus is amazingly responsive as well for a camera that’s been on the market for three years.
Sony earns brownie points for how indestructible the RX0 II feels, as it’s IPX8 waterproof (up to ten meters) and the build quality is outstanding It feels like one of the little black boxes they put on airplanes. The ultra-durable metal build is one of the strongest in the category.
The RX0 II is available at retailers for $698. The GoPro Hero 10 is priced at $399.99, almost half the cost of the Sony however, with its plastic housing it’s not nearly as indestructible as the RX0 II. The DJI Action 2 also starts at $399, but the dual-screen combo that includes a second screen to use for selfies bumps it up to $519.
