24mm F4 ZEISS® Tessar T* lens
The 24mm F4 ZEISS® Tessar T* lens delivers high-resolution images with less image distortion in peripheral areas, despite its wide-angle lens design. Improved minimum focusing distance is 7.9 (20cm), optimal for selfies and close-up shots. Employing 6 elements in 6 groups including 6 aspheric elements - this ZEISS® lens intensifies recordings contrast and sharpness. Furthermore, you can capture improved images and suppress occurrence of ghosts and flare by using an optional hood.
Advanced BIONZ X® image processing engine
The RX0 II premium lens and sensor are complimented by the high-speed Sony BIONZ X® image processing engine that powers conversion of light captured by the sensor, rendering photos and movies with natural details, realism, richer tonal gradations and low noise. Internal 4K recording is now possible due to the performance of BIONZ X which has been increased by a factor of about 1.8 compared to the previous RX0. In addition, face and Eye AF speed have been improved along with increased buffer when shooting multiple images continuously.
Internal 4K movie with image stabilization
The RX0 II offers 4K (3840x2160) 24p/30p internal movie recording with electronic image stabilization and full pixel readout with no pixel binning to collect approximately 1.7 times the amount of data required for 4K video. This oversampling reduces the appearance of moir© and jaggies and delivers smooth, high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Using the Sony Imaging Edge mobile application and Movie Edit add-on app, this footage can be transferred to a smartphone, edited, and shared easily across social networks. Even the image stabilization can be enhanced as the Movie Edit add-on app utilizes gyro information captured while shooting. Uncompressed 4K is also available via HDMI output and compatible recording devices.
Compact robust design
The RX0 IIs extra rigid super duralumin body and ultra-compact dimensions make great shots easier to take even in the toughest situations. Weighing in at only 0.30 lb. and measuring a miniscule 2.375 x 1.625 x 1.1875, the RX0II is also waterproof down to 33 ft (10m) without underwater housing and shockproof to impact of drops to the ground from heights up to 6.5 ft. (2m). The highly reliable, robust RX0 II is also crushproof4 under weights up to 200kgf / 440 lbf / 2000N.
15.3MP up to 16fps continuous shooting
Despite its 15.3MP high pixel count, the super-high-speed image sensor boosts readout speed to the extent that the camera can achieve continuous shooting up to 16fps. This lets you capture moments of fleeting beauty or facial expressions in an instant.
Super Slow Motion
Slow motion video can be captured up to 120fps in HD with sound. Super slow motion at frame rates of up to 960/1000fps is available to transform even the most mundane moment into something spectacular. Slow motion shooting at 480/500fps and 240/250fps maintains fine images at nearly HD quality with the choice of Quality Priority mode. End trigger mode lets you capture the decisive moment in super slow motion starting from two or four seconds before the REC button is pressed.
Advanced video features and mic in jack
Desirable filmic looks are available with Picture Profiles which determine the character of movies by changing basic parameters like chromogenic effects and gradation adjustment. S-Log2 is a proprietary gamma setting from Sony that is invaluable for professionals seeking post-production flexibility, and extends the dynamic range of recording to reduce occurrence of blown-out highlights and black crush. Time code is also included which greatly aids in synchronizing cameras in multi-camera shooting. The RX0 II also features a mini microphone input jack which enhances audio through optional external microphones and a Proxy Recording setting that captures a smaller proxy file for faster sharing and editing.
A creative tool from every angle
Miniature dimensions and all-around versatility maximize your freedom to take and use the RX0 II effortlessly anywhere in creative ways especially with other RX0 II cameras spread around to shoot from various perspectives. Properly-aligned multiple RX0 II cameras can be used together for creative setups from multi-camera angles, 3D, bullet-time to light-field arrays and even volumetric, thanks to the cameraâs minimal symmetric design and synchronized connectivity. On its own or as part of a full-scale multi-camera system, the RX0 II can extend imaginations and open eyes to unprecedented recording possibilities.
