Sony recently launched the RX0 at Europe's largest trade show, IFA—in Berlin, Germany. With the new uber-compact, waterproof, and shockproof camera, Sony hopes to catch the eyes of video professionals looking for a robust camera capable of high-quality video footage. Sony has jammed a 1" Exmoor RS CMOS sensor into a device that weighs just 110 grams and is ridiculously small—at 59x40.5x29.8 millimeters!
The RX0 boasts a Zeiss Tessor T* 24mm equivalent, f/4 wide-angle lens; raw image capture; 16 frames per second; and can reach shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 second. Furthermore, 1,000fps should make for some sick slow-motion videos, while the 4K HDMI port with external recording capabilities, S-Log, focus peaking, and MF Assistant will have many video professionals drooling.
But what really makes this teensy piece of technological prowess even more enticing is the fact that users can benefit from up to 15 devices recording at once—via remote. This will surely allow videographers to capture just about every possible perspective. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that divers can take it down to a depth of 30 feet (10 meters)—or 300 feet (100 meters), with an underwater housing.
The RX0 enters the European market in October and goes for 850 Euros ($1,010). However, no details regarding when the American market can expect the RX0 have been provided.
