Multi-cam precision via an IP connection
Wired multi-camera control with optional Camera Control Box CCB-WD1Greatly enhance the flexibility and accuracy of multi-cam shooting with a wired LAN connection. This lets you smoothly control remote cameras, accurately synchronize multiple cameras, and easily transfer files immediately after shooting.
Wireless multi-control function
Freer camera placement, wirelesslyA smartphone or tablet with PlayMemories Mobile installed can control multiple RX0 cameras.
Various accessories for diverse useThe RX0 is minimal in physical dimensions and design, yet tremendously ingenious and versatile in every sense. The more accessories and other cameras you use it with, the more you can appreciate how thoughtfully every aspect of such a multi-camera system is integrated to accommodate a range of shooting needs and creative ambitions.
ZEISS Tessar T* lensThe ZEISS Tessar T* 24mm f/4 lens delivers high-resolution images with less image distortion in peripheral areas, despite its wide-angle lens design. This ZEISS lens intensifies recordings’ contrast and sharpness. Furthermore, you can capture improved images and suppress occurrence of ghost and flare by using an optional hood.
15.3 MP (effective) 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 960fps/1000fps super slow motion and up to 1/32000 super-high shutter speed for movement that, in real time, is beyond human perception. The extended circuit features ample signal processing capacity and high-speed signal readout.
BIONZ X for superior detail and textureThe high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine from Sony is as important as the lens and image sensor, as it powers conversion of light captured by the sensor, so photos and movies can be recorded with more natural details, more realism, richer tonal gradations and lower noise.
Remote control via smartphones and tabletsThanks to built-in Wi-Fi, multiple RX0 cameras can be remotely controlled using a smartphone or tablet. Simply download free PlayMemories Mobile app to your mobile device for remote control of camera shutter release, movie recording start/stop, and instant receiving of captured footage. Also, Bluetooth is available and allows simultaneous remote power on/off operation.
For more flexible shooting systemsThe compact, simple, protrusion-free, rectangular body is advantageous in combination with optional accessories. Also, Upside-down Flip Capture flips the image the right way around when the camera has to be mounted upside down according to certain setting requirements.
Adjust images with superior flexibility and precisionThe 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. Picture Profile determines the character of movies by changing basic parameters like chromogenic effects and gradation adjustment.
For shooting as far-reaching as your imaginationThe camera is tough enough for you to shoot with confidence in a range of difficult environments. It is waterproof down to 10m/33ft under water, shock resistant to drops to the ground from heights up to 2.0m/6.5ft and crushproof under weight of up to 200kgf/440lbf/2000N.
Superior integrity, handy features, compact formThe smooth extra super duralumin body is designed without protruding parts for distinctive quality, strength, and sophistication. Although this high-rigidity camera is sufficiently compact to fit in a palm, it integrates such convenient features as LCD monitor and buttons with ease of use, durability, and performance that you can rely on even under harsh shooting conditions.
Up to 960fps/1000fps super slow motionSuper slow motion at frame rate of up to 960/1000fps is available to capture split-seconds of action in movies. Slow motion shooting at 480/500fps and 240/250fps especially 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.
Clean HDMI output for 4K moviesFor production flexibility, you can use Clean HDMI output to record uncompressed video to an external recorder in your choice of formats and bitrates, including non-compressed 4K movie, and monitor the footage. Moreover, stunning high-precision 4K images with suppressed moiré and jaggies can be delivered via data readout without pixel binning or line skipping.
Up to 16fps continuous shooting with reduced blackoutDespite 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.
Up to 1/32000 sec. Anti-Distortion ShutterThanks to the Exmor RS sensor’s extremely fast readout, the Anti-Distortion Shutter that is capable of shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec. minimizes image distortion caused by the rolling shutter phenomenon that can otherwise distort shots of swiftly moving subjects.
Choose pro-quality XAVC or AVCHD movie recordingLow-compression XAVC S format is excellent, especially among serious videographers, for expression of high-quality movies with minimal noise, even in scenes full of movement. The camera also features AVCHD format for easy editing and sharing.
Custom key creative convenienceYou can program preferred frequently used functions on your choice of buttons to best adapt the camera to your shooting style. You’ll gain prompt, handy fingertip access to your selection of such settings, for faster, more intuitive camera operation.
Shoot virtually anywhere with wide ISO sensitivitySensitivity extends up to ISO 12800, for crisper images in extremely low light. Let Auto ISO mode determine the most appropriate setting automatically, or manually expand sensitivity as low as ISO 80. The camera also allows you to set up lower-limit shutter speed at time of Auto ISO setting.
Preset Focus for simpler movie shootingFor movie shooting, you can choose MF (manual focus) or PF (preset focus) mode. If you select PF mode, the RX0 automatically focuses on a subject in the range farther than approx. 1m. Also, while the RX0 is in PF mode, if you activate “NEAR” focusing range, the camera automatically focuses on a nearby subject (within approx. 1m range).
MF Assist and Peaking functions refine focusTo help you fine-tune focus, Manual Focus (MF) Assist magnifies the area you are focusing on to enable more precise adjustment while Peaking highlights the sharpest or most in-focus area with your choice of color to help determine whether further focusing adjustment is required.
Auto Power OFF Temperature can extend movie shooting durationYou can choose an internal temperature level at which the camera automatically powers off. For example, movie shots tend to run longer when a tripod is used, so by setting Auto Power OFF Temperature to “High”, movies can be shot for extended durations.
Supports Remote Camera ControlWhen the camera is connected to a computer, you can use Remote Camera Control to take pictures or change settings on the camera from the computer connected via USB port. All you need to do is to download the Remote Camera Control application of a version that supports your PC.
Works with iMovie and Final Cut Pro XThis product is compatible with Final Cut Pro X and iMovie.
New Imaging Edge software suite from SonyImaging Edge app suite can maximize image quality, improve production efficiency and help you finely adjust RAW-based images. Use its "Remote" to remotely control shooting; "Edit" to develop RAW data into high-quality photos; and “Viewer” to view, rate, and select photos from a list of shots.
Capture One (for Sony)Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning image editing software that provides high-end image quality RAW development, easy management of your image files, and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.
Wired multi-camera control with optional Camera Control Box CCB-WD1Greatly enhance flexibility and accuracy of multi-cam shooting with wired LAN connection. Harness the optional Camera Control Box (CCB-WD1) to unleash unlimited shooting possibilities of RX0. Combine Box units to simultaneously control up to 100 RX0 cameras, turn power on/off, adjust settings, and capture photos or videos, using a web browser on your PC. This also lets you accurately synchronize connected cameras, and easily transfer files after shooting.
