Sony Unveils RX0 II — World’s Smallest And Lightest Ultra-compact Camera
Sony has today added a new addition to their compact camera line-up with the launch of the new RX0 II (DSC-RX0M2). As you’d expect, it comes as an upgrade from the previous RX0, where it builds upon the waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, and other qualities.
The new camera comes with 1.0-type stacked 15.3MP Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and an advanced BIONZ X image processing engine that offer enhanced color reproduction. It has been optimized to deliver lightning fast performance and better image quality for both stills and movie shooting across a wide sensitivity range of ISO 8011-12800. The ZEISS Tessar T 24mm F4.0 fixed wide-angle lens has a shortened minimum focusing distance of 20cm.
Thanks to its small build, you can easily fit it into a pocket and it is ready for whatever the elements throw at it thanks to its multiple protection. Other than that, it offers 4K 30p internal movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning to collect approximately 1.7 times the amount of data required for 4K video.
With the RX0 II, it introduces in-body electronic stabilization for steady footage, even when shot handheld. You can further enhance it when the footage is exported to a smartphone or a tablet running the Movie Edit app where the additional information captured during filming can be processed.
Other than that, it offers Super Slow Motion recording at up to 1000fps, uncompressed 4K HDMI output and simultaneous proxy movie recording. It boasts an Anti-distortion Shutter of up to 1/32000 seconds and can shoot at up to 16fps to capture any fleeting moment.
They’ve also added Sony’s Eye AF, which is gaining popularity with portrait photographers all over, where it comes with an upgrade in terms of speed, accuracy, and operation of the Eye AF to capture portraits.
The Sony RX0 II will be coming to our shores here in Malaysia in May 2019. As for the price, it’s hasn’t been revealed just yet, so stay tuned for more updates here.
