At its IFA 20 17 press event, Sony established the RX0: a jolt and also water proof camera with very compact dimensions which uses a Sony 1" detector to capture still pictures and video. Although the RX0 appears very much as an action camera and comes with similar dimensions, Sony is not marketing it as such. The camera is rather aimed at video professionals and enthusiasts who want to take high profile footage from hard conditions and possibly use several cameras at precisely the exact same time.
Several Sony RX0 cameras might be connected to capture photos, video and slow-motion footage from various angles. With Sony's FA-WRC1M remote around 1-5 cameras could be triggered at exactly the identical time as well as 5 cameras can link wirelessly using a Sony mobile program. A wired solution is expected to launch in early 2018. Image data is recorded on a multi-layer Exmor RS CMOS sensor having a 15.3 MP resolution. It is coupled with a Zeiss Tessar T* 2 4 mm identical F4 wide angle lens. Stills can be captured in RAW format in shutter speeds of upto 1/32,000 sec and at around 16 frames per minute.
In video mode, super-slow-motion footage may be recorded at rates of up to 1000 frames per minute, and also a Clean 4K HDMI interface allows using an outside recorder. Focus peaking along with also an MF-assistant offer accurate pre-focusing and image profile alternatives, and S-Log2 expands the creative possibilities. Time codes and stamps assist in editing when working with several cameras simultaneously.
Even the RX0 weighs only 110 grams and with measurements of just 59x40.5x29.8mm, also it can be put in even the smallest of openings. It's shockproof and watertight down to ten meters, or 100 meters using an optional underwater case. In Europe the RX0 will soon be around from October for 850 Euros (approximately $1010).
