Overview

Tiny but Tough.

Premium image quality from an ultra-compact body

The RX0 II is the ideal life-sharing companion. It captures stunning images, even in dim light, with the powerful 1.0-type sensor and low-distortion ZEISS® Tessar T* lens, and it lets you share them easily with your smartphone. It also features internal 4K-movie recording, impressive image stabilization, an improved 20 cm minimum focus distance, and a 180°-tiltable LCD screen.

Key Features:

  • 1.0-type image sensor
  • Ultra-compact Body
  • Zeiss Tessar T* Lens
  • Waterproof, Dustproof, Shockproof & Crushproof

Rugged by design, built to perform

Reflecting the camera's robust construction2 and go-anywhere functionality, it sports a simple and practical ribbed design, with clean lines and no unnecessary protrusions. The extra super duralumin body is dependably rigid but light in weight.

Engineered for serious image quality

Sharp, high-resolution still photos and movies

Packed into the RX0 II's tiny body is a wealth of cutting-edge imaging technology, designed to deliver beautiful images in whatever shooting situation you may encounter. Clear Image Zoom enables up to 2x zoom with minimal loss of quality.

Stunning detail and low noise

The 1.0-type Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor works in tandem with the advanced BIONZ X™ image-processing engine to provide a wide dynamic range, reduced noise, natural-looking details and rich tonal gradations.


Soft Skin Effect

For better-looking portrait shots and selfies, the camera's Soft Skin mode reduces small facial wrinkles and skin dullness while preserving the clarity of the subject's eyes and mouth.


ZEISS® Tessar T* lens

The wide-angle ZEISS® Tessar T* 24 mm3 F4 lens delivers beautiful images in just about any shooting situation, with enhanced contrast and sharpness, and reduced distortion..


Eye AF

When you're taking portrait shots and selfies, the RX0 II's Eye AF function is conveniently set up to automatically focus on the subject's eyes.

Beautiful, high-resolution movies

Internal 4K movie recording with full pixel readout

The RX0 II lets you record 4K movies1 with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, using 1.7x oversampling to help produce stunningly clear images and action scenes. Despite the camera's compact size, it supports internal 4K 30p recording (QFHD: 3840 x 2160), making it ideal for shooting movies with high-image-quality when you're travelling or when you're capturing scenes from daily life.

Make great movies even better

New electronic image stabilization helps you capture great-looking movies, while the Movie Edit add-on for your smartphone achieves smooth images, similar to shooting with a gimbal. The Movie Edit add-on can also keep your subject in-frame automatically, even when you crop movies for smartphone portrait screens and social-media sharing.

Waterproof / Dustproof

Down to 10 meters/33 feet

Whether you're snorkeling in fresh water or seawater, shooting poolside or out in a thunderstorm - the RX0 II will expand your shooting potential. There's no need to safeguard against rainwater or splashed drinks, and you can also shoot comfortably in desert settings with sand and dust. All without requiring a special waterproof case or additional accessories.


Shockproof

From a height of 2.0 meters/6.5 feet

Thanks to the shockproof design, you don't need to worry about the occasional accident — the RX0 II's rugged body is built to withstand the impact of a drop from a height of 2.0 meters (6.5 feet).


Crushproof

Up to 200 kgf/440 lbf/2000 N

There's no need for super-delicate treatment — stow the camera comfortably in a carrying bag or a pocket and bring it wherever you go without concern.

Capture life from any angle

Built tough, for worry-free shooting

Super-compact and lightweight, the RX0 II is built to be tough and resilient. Throw it in your bag or carry it from a strap without worries, and use it in settings where you could never shoot before. 

Ultra-compact and ready for adventure

The RX0 II is a serious camera in a tiny package. It's easy to carry anywhere you go, and it delivers high-quality images wherever you shoot. And its simple design and lack of protrusions make it easier to set up, pack and store. 

Packed with imaging power


Super slow-motion movies from 960fps/1000fps shooting

Shooting at frame rates of up to 960fps/1000fps captures split-second action and allows you to produce super slow-motion movie scenes. You can even capture in full HD resolution at up to 120fps/100fps.


Interval recording for time-lapse movies

The camera's new interval recording feature enables continuous shooting with a set interval of between 1 and 60 seconds. These still images can then be edited into a time-lapse movie on a PC.

Expand your creative options

Tiltable LCD monitor perfect for selfies

The camera's LCD monitor tilts upward around 180°, making it easy to frame selfie shots and vlogging sessions. With its waterproof and dustproof design, you can even use it for underwater shots. The monitor also tilts downward, by around 90°, to help when you're shooting from a high angle.

Extended control with the optional shooting grip

The VCT-SGR1 Shooting Grip has integrated controls to let you trip the shutter release and operate the record button and the camera's zoom from the grip itself. The shooting grip can also be converted for use as a tabletop tripod.

External microphone for high-quality sound

In spite of its ultra-compact size, the RX0 II comes equipped with a microphone jack, so you can attach an external mic for better quality sound in your vlogs and movies.


Continuous shooting at up to 16fps with reduced blackout

The RX0 II's continuous shooting capabilities allow you to better capture decisive moments of action and fleeting facial expressions. Up to 129 JPEG (Standard) images can be shot in one burst. 


Anti-Distortion shutter at up to 1/32,000 sec. 

The Anti-Distortion shutter is capable of shutter speeds of up to 1/32,000 sec., and is designed to minimize the rolling shutter phenomenon which can distort images of fast-moving objects.


Picture Profiles to meet pro-level demand

With the Picture Profiles feature and S-Log2, you can set the overall tone of movie productions from the camera body, adjusting parameters that affect the final look of your movies. 

Wireless multi-camera control

The perfect setup for casual use with a smartphone

Sony's Imaging Edge Mobile app lets you control multiple cameras from a smartphone or other mobile device. Wireless connectivity gives you greater flexibility in positioning your cameras, which are sturdy and small enough to go nearly anywhere. 

Multi-camera shots with a wired connection

Precise, accurate control to meet the needs of a professional workflow

With the optional Camera Control Box (CCB-WD1), you can simultaneously control multiple cameras, monitoring and changing settings remotely from a connected PC. This provides a stable connection to the cameras to facilitate accurate multi-camera synchronization, and it allows immediate file transfer from the cameras for easier file management.
