Action cameras are nothing new to the market – but the Sony RX0 stands out among them. What makes it different from the others is the use of the same sensor as the one in the RX100 series.
While it looked reasonably rugged and tough, the Sony RX0 is not marketed as an action camera. Rather it is for professionals looking to record high-quality 4K video in challenging environments. The Exmore RS CMOS sensor captures video using the 15.3MP sensor. The lens on the RX0 is a Zeiss Tessar T* 24 mm equivalent F4 wide angle lens.
Images captured with the RX0 can be saved as RAW files or JPEG, at shutter speeds of up to 1/32,0000 seconds and up to 16fps. The camera can also record super-slow-motion video up to 1,000 fps at 1080p resolution. Not bad for a small camera that is both water and dustproof up to 10 metres.
Several RX0s can be chained together to capture photos, videos and slow-motion videos from various angles. Using Sony’s FA-WRC1M remote up to 15 cameras can be triggered at the same time and up to five cameras can be connected wirelessly via a Sony mobile app.
It will be available starting from October in Europe for 850 euro (about RM 4,298) with the price of the FA-WRC1M remote to be announced later.
