The RX0 II is unusual and impressive in some ways, but it doesn't offer a compelling all-round package for most people.

If this is the main way you like to shoot, and you're prepared to put up with its foibles, then the RX0 II could be a handy addition to your filmmaking arsenal. But vloggers and travellers should look at its cheaper rivals.

But in the end, you can get better performance from cameras that cost half as much.
