RX0 1.0"-Type Sensor
Ultra-Compact Waterproof/Shockproof Camera
The Sony RX0 is a lightweight Ultra-Compact Camera that offers professional image quality in a portable action-sized waterproof, crushproof, and shockproof body. The camera combines a 21MP 1" stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with a Zeiss 24mm-equivalent f/4 lens that provides a wide field of view without barrel distortion. Capable of outputting uncompressed 4K UHD video via HDMI, it also records up to 1080p60 in-camera at 50 Mb/s in XAVC.
The 1" sensor minimises rolling-shutter artifacts and brings with it extended dynamic range and high-speed readout, even at super-slow motion rates of up to 960/1000 fps. The anti-distortion shutter features speeds up to 1/32000 per second, capable of freezing the action with minimal skew. Additional features include manual- and auto-focus modes, a 20" minimum focus distance, S-Log2 recording, NTSC and PAL compatibility, and on-camera control buttons.
Internal recording options include 24/25/30/50 and 60 fps at 1080p, all at 50 Mb/s in the XAVC codec. Still photos can be captured in both raw and JPEG with shutter speeds as fast as 1/32,000 per second, and in continuous-shooting bursts up to 16 fps. You can also customise your images with multiple Picture Profiles, including the versatile S-Log2 gamma setting.
Use the RX0 as a single camera, or for multi-camera recording, timecode-sync up to five cameras. When connected to a Wi-Fi router, greater than five cameras can be synced, making the RX0 ideal for concerts, stunts, and other multi-camera applications. Camera control is offered via the Sony Play Memories smartphone app (iOS and Android).
The Sony RX0 comes with a rechargeable NP-BJ1 battery, an AC adapter, micro-USB cable, and wrist strap. The camera itself is waterproof down to 10 metres, and can be used down to 100 metres with the optional MPK-HSR1 waterproof housing (available separately). The durable RX0 camera is also shockproof from impacts up to 2 metres, and crushproof under weights up to 200 kg.
