The Sony RX0 | Hands-on (the Wheel) Review

Technical Editors Kriss Hampton and Matt Higgs take Sony's RX0 camera off-road

 

 

 The Sony RX0 offers boundless creativity in an ultra-compact body. This durable camera is shock-proof, crush-proof and waterproof, can record up to a massive 1000fps at near HD quality and offers clean 4K recording via HDMI. You can even connect multiple cameras together for virtual reality and multi-cam work. To top it off, the RX0 features a fixed 24mm f/4 Zeiss Tessar T* lens. 

 

Key Features: Sony RX0

  • Versatility like you’ve never seen before: The Sony RX0 offers an impressive set of features that makes it ideal for a wide number of uses such as an action camera, as part of a virtual reality rig, a high-speed camera, or even on drones
  • Super slow-motion: Capture up to a staggering 1000fps in nearly HD for those moments you need to freeze your subject in time
  • Virtual reality: The RX0’s modular nature allows you to connect a number of them together wirelessly (or through a wired connection) for virtual reality capture
  • Premium quality optics: Sony have once again partnered with Zeiss to provide the RX0 with a fixed 24mm f/4 Tessar T* lens so you can get the most out of the 1.0-type stacked 15.3MO Exmor RS CMOS sensor
  • Ideal for post-processing: Capture footage in the highly-regarded S-Log2 picture profile for greater latitude in post-production
  • High-speed continuous shooting for stills: The high-quality image sensor allows for continuous shooting up to 16fps. Coupled with the Anti-Distortion Shutter up to 1/32000 users can capture crisp action without rolling shutter
