Sony RX0 for $700.00 looks way better than GoPro

The new Sony looks way more Pro than GoPro

The New Sony RX0 looks like a really Superior camera for our use.

Probably too much to ask to make it work in our old Solos, but maybe with a Cube - who knows.

1" image sensor and high speed HD and shutter and zero to infinity focus and  pretty much distortionless.

Also has uncompressed 4K output.

My guess is this will totally take over from the GoPro in the Pro and Semi Pro applications.

True it doesn't do 4K recording, but personally I use 4K on my Hero very seldom and would definitely welcome higher quality 1080P, especially the high speed capability,

What is may be more significant is the apparent lack of electronic or optical image stabilization which the other Sony Sport Cams do incorporate.

On photos, the incredibly fast shutter speed could probably compensate for lack of stabilization, but not so much on video. 

In reality , although not mentioned in the text, I understand the BionZ chip has very effective built in image stabilization so it seems more a choice as to whether Sony has chosen to implement it or not in this camera.

I guess we will have to wait and see.

While I agree about 4K not really being a must have resolution  yet, you at least want something one step above 1080p to be able to do post stabilization etc. and still get a nice 1080p result. If they included 2.7K I would probably get one.

We need a good rgb mapping camera! Currently there are none!

mapping so important for the industry right now and so little interest by cam manufacturers still using s100, qx1 and a6000 same tech as 2015...
