Sony RX0 II: The World’s Smallest and Lightest Premium Ultra-Compact Camera
This is a camera that I really wanna talk about because i think this is GoPro Hero 7’s biggest competitor as of writing. Biggest competitor because of the few features that the GoPro Hero 7 doesn’t have. Let’s dive right into it.
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. Its simple design and lack of protrusions also make it easier to set up, pack and store.
Waterproof/Dustproof, Shockproof and Shockproof body
Whether you’re snorkeling in fresh water or seawater up to 33 feet (10 meters), 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.
Thanks to the shockproof design, you won’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 6.5 feet (2.0 meters).
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 up to 440 lbf/200 kgf/2000 N.
180-degree tilting LCD
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.
Internal recording of 4K movies
The RX0 II lets you record 4K movies 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 high-image-quality movies when you’re traveling or when you’re capturing scenes from daily life.
Up to 960fps/1000fps super slow motion
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.
