The Sony RX0 II is Sony’s follow up to their RX0, an advanced, ultra-compact action camera-sized camera that offers professional image quality. Key features include:
15.3MP 1-inch stacked sensor
Capture 4K up to 30p or HD up to 120p
Ultra-compact, lightweight, waterproof build
What’s Changed? In-body electronic image stabilization is the feature we’re most excited about. Presumably to keep up with GoPro’s Hero7, the RX0 II features impressive IS in such a tiny package. A flip-up, tilt-able screen is new on the back panel, a welcome addition for today’s youtube culture of selfies and vloggers. A new BIONZ X processor promises to help low-light and provide faster shooting. An upgraded version of Sony’s popular Eye AF makes an appearance here as well.
Professional Image Quality. The Sony RX0 II Ultra-Compact Camera offers professional-grade image quality in a compact and lightweight package. It can capture RAW and JPEG stills with shutter speeds as fast as 1/32,000 of a second in up to 16 fps bursts. It can record 4K UHD video and up to 1080p 120 fps video directly to the microSDXC card slot. Uncompressed, clean 4:2:2 4K footage can also be output through the micro HDMI port. It also offers super-slow motion at up to 960 fps. The 15.3MP 1-inch stacked sensor generates minimal rolling-shutter artifacts, and the built-in Zeiss 24mm-equivalent f/4.0 lens gives you a wide, distortion-free field of view.
Multi-Camera Sync. The RX0 II is designed for multi-camera recording. You can use the Sony PlayMemories app for iOS and Android to timecode-sync and control between 5 and 50 cameras. When connected to a Wi-Fi router, you can sync even more cameras, making the RX0 II great for concerts, plays, and other multi-camera applications.
Ultra-Compact High-Quality Build. Not only is this camera’s body extremely lightweight and compact, it’s also shockproof and waterproof down to 33 feet.
Additional Features. The RX0 II also features autofocus and manual focusing, an 8 inch minimum focusing distance, S-Log2 recording, NTSC and PAL compatibility, and on-camera controls.
What's the battery life like when shooting in video mode?
Sony rates the battery life between 35-60 minutes when shooting video in ideal environments. Operating in extreme temperatures and/or controlling the camera with a smartphone will deplete the battery faster.
Is this camera waterproof?
When the sealing gasket is clear of debris and fastened in place, this camera is waterproof rated to a depth of 33 feet.
Is this camera prone to overheating?
Yes. Shooting video will cause the camera’s internal temperature to rise. When the camera becomes too hot, it’ll automatically shut down. Even when powered back on, the camera won’t allow the user to record again until it’s cooled off. Fortunately, Sony added a temperature warning icon that will appear as your camera comes close to overheating, letting users know when to take a break from shooting.
