Surprise! New Sony RX10 sensor has 5K full pixel readout

According to Imaging Resource the new video mode of the new Sony RX10 with 1″ sensor is a big step forwards. The RX10’s sensor reads out the entire 5472 x 3080 frame at 60fps sending the maximum amount of raw video data to the image processor.

The new Bionz X processor is designed to take the 5K video stream (for the first time). The advantage is that Bionz X can intelligently downsample and compress to 1080p from a much higher baseline than usual.
