Sony RX0 Announced

August 31, 2017

A new type camera with 1.0 inch -type sensor ultra-compact camera with waterproof and shockproof design.

With boundless capability contained within a strong, waterproof, miniature body, the Sony RX0 combines cutting-edge imaging performance and rugged, ready-for- anything design for more versatile operation all around, whether on its own or with multi-camera systems and accessories. 

Shoot freely. View the results as you like. With so much creative shooting freedom at your fingertips, your power to bring your visions to life is limitless.

This is new type of camera which offers entirely new imaging possibilities for today’s creators.


The RX0 (model name: DSC-RX0) marries the hallmark leading image quality of the Sony RX series with advanced photo and video capabilities, all compressed into a robust  and ultra-compact body.

Designed to facilitate creative expression beyond current limitations, RX0 is equally
adept at shooting still images or filming video on its own, as well as when included as part of a multi-camera set-up to maximize creativity. Its miniature dimensions and all-around versatility allow creators to approach unique photographic and videographic challenges in new ways, always with the assurance of high quality results.

Weighing just 110 grams  and measuring 59mm x 29.8mm x 40.5mm  (WxDxH) the RX0 redefines how small and light a premium compact camera can be.

The new model can be used as a standalone camera or as part of a multi-camera rig in any kind of shooting conditions including rain, underwater, space-limited, sandy or dusty environments and more.

Stimulating imaginations
Multiple RX0s can be linked together in a variety of ways to film and produce unique content like bullet-time, time-slice and many other unique styles of content creation. Sony’s wireless radio commander, the FA-WRC1M can be used to trigger up to fifteen 12 RX0’s simultaneous, while Sony’s PlayMemories™ Mobile 13 app allows up to five RX0 models to be connected and controlled wirelessly from any paired device. A wireless multi-camera shooting solution capable of connecting additional RX0 units when an access  point is used 14 is currently under development with a target release date of January 2018 via firmware update.


For users looking for a more reliable wired connection, a camera control box is  being developed and will also be released in January 2018.

Power packed
The new RX0 camera features a 1.0-type stacked 15.3 MP 6 Exmor RS CMOS image sensor, BIONZ X™ processor and a wide-angle ZEISS® Tessar T* 24mm F4 fixed lens to deliver high resolution and less distortion results for both RAW and JPEG stills and across all supported video formats. It is equipped an Anti-Distortion Shutter that can shoot as fast as 1/32000 second, as well maximum burst shooting capability at up to 16 fps, ensuring that even fast moving objects are beautifully and accurately rendered. Its small size also makes it an ideal choice for casual shooting, street and travel photography and more.

The new portable RX0 is waterproof 1,2 at depths of up to 10 meters (33 ft) on its own, and can be used at up to 100m 15 (330 ft) depth when paired with the new MPK-HSR1 Housing. The camera is shockproof 3,1 when dropped from up to 2 meters (6.5 ft) and crushproof 4,1 to 200kg / 440lb / 2000N, making it durable enough to withstand tough shooting conditions including rain, sand, dust, snow and more, where traditional cameras simply cannot operate.

Video Excellence
On the video front, the RX0 is packed with a variety of creative and powerful  features including super slow motion capture 8 at up to 960 frames per second, 4K clean HDMI output to an external recorder as well as MF assist and Peaking to adjust focus to exact preferences aswell as Preset Focus options which enhance control. The camera also offers Picture Profile options and S-Log2, as well Time Code / User Bit features, which are extremely useful for multi-camera shoots.

Full Range of Accessories
To maximize the potential of RX0, a host of new accessories are available that support new and different ways of shooting. These include the VCT-CGR1 Cage for increased system flexibility, the MPK-HSR1 Housing, enabling the RX0 to be taken down to depths of up to 100 meters underwater 15 , the CPT-R1 Cable Protector, VF-SPR1 Spare Lens Protector, VFA-305R1 Filter Adaptor Kit which includes filter adaptor, lens hood and MC protector,  Rechargeable Battery Pack and ACC-TRDCJ Accessory Kit.

Availability
The new compact RX0 camera is expected to be available in October 2017.
