A low-distortion wide-angle ZEISS lens, 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor and anti-distortion shutter deliver stunning images, while the tiltable LCD panel and microphone jack make it ideal for vlogging. Waterproof, shock-resistant and crushproof, the ultra-compact RX0 II goes everywhere.
1.0-type sensor and advanced image processor for stunning images
ZEISS Tessar T* 24mm lens for less distortion
Ultra-compact, tough body: waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and crushproof
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-movie2 recording, impressive image stabilisation, an improved 20cm minimum focus distance, and a 180-tiltable LCD screen.
Reliable performance in challenging shooting environments
The camera's tough construction makes it dependable for use in a variety of difficult environments. It is waterproof down to 10m/33ft, shock resistant for drops from heights up to 2.0m/6.5ft and crushproof under weights of up to 200kgf/440lbf/2000N.
4K movies recorded with full pixel readout
The RX0 II supports internal movie recording at up to 4K 30p resolution (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) for when you're travelling or recording vlogs. When shooting 4K movies with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, the camera oversamples around 1.7 times as much information as is required for basic 4K output, delivering outstanding resolution.
Image stabilisation for movie shooting
The newly added electronic image stabilisation feature enables stable, steady hand-held shooting of movies.
Movie Edit add-on, for easy social media uploads
Designed for quick, high-quality social media sharing, the Movie Edit add-on provides automatic image stabilisation, producing smoother images similar to what you'd achieve using a gimbal. It also lets you reframe your video to suit various smartphone-friendly aspect ratios while intelligently keeping your main subject in the frame.
Eye AF feature for perfect portrait and selfie shots
The camera's sophisticated Eye AF feature is designed to automatically detect and focus on the eyes of the main subjects in your shots. It rapidly and accurately detects eyes even under difficult conditions, such as when the subject is looking downward or when faces are dimly lit or backlit.
Interval recording for the creation of time-lapse movies
Continuous shooting with a set interval between 1 and 60 seconds is now available within the camera. The resulting still images can be edited into a time-lapse movie on a PC using the Viewer in the free Sony Imaging Edge desktop applications. A simple variable-speed preview function allows a draft of the time-lapse movie to be checked on the camera immediately after shooting.
Pro-quality XAVC S and AVCHD options for movie recording
The low-compression XAVC S format is excellent for the production of high-quality movie images with minimal noise, even in very active scenes. The camera also supports the AVCHD format for easy editing and sharing
Wide ISO sensitivity for greater flexibility in shooting
The camera's sensitivity range extends from ISO 80 to ISO 12800, giving you the freedom to shoot even in very dimly lit settings. You can use Auto ISO to determine the sensitivity automatically, and set a lower limit to maintain your shutter speed/angle for accurate motion capture.
Imaging Edge Remote, Viewer, and Edit
Elevate your photography with Imaging Edge desktop applications. Use "Remote" to control and monitor shooting live on your PC screen "Viewer" to quickly preview, rate, and select photos from large image libraries and "Edit" to develop RAW data into high-quality photos for delivery. Get the best from Sony RAW files, and manage your productions more efficiently.
Capture One (for Sony)
Capture One Express (for Sony) is free award-winning image editing software that provides high-end image quality RAW development, easy management of your image files, and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) is an optional purchase, for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.
ZEISS Tessar T* lens
The ZEISS Tessar T* 24mm F4 lens delivers high-resolution images with reduced peripheral distortion despite its wide-angle design. The improved 20cm minimum focusing distance is perfect for selfies and shots of tabletop objects, while Clear Image Zoom enables up to 2x zoom with minimal quality loss. Ghosting and flare can be further suppressed with the use of an optional hood, and the surface coating on the front body makes it easier to wipe off water drops and dust.
15.3MP (effective) stacked CMOS sensor
The 1.0-type Exmor RSTM CMOS image sensor is stacked with a dedicated DRAM chip, allowing incredible 1/32,000 sec. shutter speeds that capture movement imperceptible to the human eye. The sensor also enables the camera's impressively wide dynamic range, from ISO 80 to ISO 12800.
Advanced BIONZ X for low noise and stunning detail
The latest version of the BIONZ X image-processing engine provides high-resolution images with a wide dynamic range and reduced noise in low-light settings. Images are characterised by more natural details and richer tonal gradations. This improved BIONZ X now also enables internal recording of 4K movies.
Handy features in a robust, ultra-compact body
The rugged, extra-super-duralumin body is smooth and sleek in design, without protruding parts. Despite being barely larger than a matchbox, it includes a convenient 180-tiltable LCD monitor and other handy features designed to make shooting stills and movies easier.
