Sony is certainly no stranger to action cams. Its FDR-X3000, for example, provides adequate ruggedness and image quality, and we’ve enjoyed using a few of them to shoot various episode of ON THE GO. The new Sony RX0, however, seems like a different kind of animal altogether. Here’s a quick look at its main features:
With its 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor, the camera’s imager is a lot closer to a compact camera sensor than a GoPro. In fact, as its name gives away, it is the same sensor size used on the RX10 and RX100 line, and offers a resolution of 15.3MP. The sensor, the BIONZ X processor and 3.8cm LCD are housed in a tiny little 59 x 40.5 x 29.8 mm body weighing just 100g. Its duralumin build ensures ruggedness, and it is also water, shock and crushproof.
The Sony RX0 offers a few nice bells and whistles, such as 16fps continuous RAW shooting in photo mode, anti–distortion shutter at up to 1/32000 sec, and up to 960/1000fps high frame-rate video (depending on system frequency). As always with these numbers, though, those are the very extremes – Sony claims that up to 240/250, or 480/500fps at a stretch, will maintain HD quality.
Similarly, the Sony RX0 offers an ISO range of up to 12800, and 80 at the low end. While no one expects a7S-level low-light performance, this large ISO range in addition to the camera’s larger sensor should in theory make this camera perform better than other action cams in challenging light conditions.
There are a couple of features that highlight the potential video uses of the Sony RX0. The first is the inclusion of various Sony Picture Profiles such as Cine1 and Cine2, but most importantly, S-Log2, making the image coming out of the RX0 not only more flexible for colour grading, but also easier to integrate into existing Sony workflows. Indie shooters using the FS7, FS5, or the a7S or a6500 can now add the RX0 to their arsenal as a crash cam and keep the image consistent. Additionally, features like focus peaking and manual focus add to the overall flexibility of the RX0.Read More...
