  • Superb image quality delivered by 1.0-type stacked 15.3MP  image sensor condensed into waterproof  rugged, highly compact body
  • Featuring ZEISS® Tessar T* 24mm  F4 fixed wide-angle lens
  • Movie shooting with 4K  internal recording and new image stabilisation solutions
 
Dubai, UAE; May 8, 2019 – Sony Middle East & Africa today introduced in the UAE an exciting new addition to its highly popular compact camera line-up with the launch of the world's smallest and lightest  premium compact camera, the RX0 II (model DSC-RX0M2). Building upon the waterproof/dustproof2, shockproof , crushproof  and ultra-compact qualities of the original RX0, the new model now offers internal 4K recording, up to 180-degree and down to 90-degree tiltable LCD screen that even works underwater , and new image stabilisation solutions for video recording.
 
At the heart of the RX0 II sits a 1.0-type stacked 15.3-megapixel1 Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor and an advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine that offer enhanced  colour reproduction including beautiful skin tones. This power packed combination has been optimised to deliver lightning fast performance and exquisite image quality for both stills and movie shooting across a wide sensitivity range of ISO 80  -12800. The ZEISS® Tessar T* 24mm3 F4.0 fixed wide-angle lens has a shortened minimum focusing distance of 20cm, making it perfect for selfies or table-top photos.  
 
A camera for all conditions
The RX0 II is truly a ‘worry-free' camera that can be taken into places that no other camera can go. Measuring just 59mm x 40.5mm x 35mm  and weighing just 132g , the RX0 II fits easily into a pocket and is ready for whatever the elements can throw at it. It is waterproof2 up to 10 metres deep, dustproof2, shockproof7 up to 2-metres and crushproof8 up to 200KG force. 
 
Movies and More 
The RX0 II offers 4K 30p internal movie recording4 with full pixel readout and no pixel binning to collect approximately 1.7 times the amount of data required for 4K video. This oversampling reduces the appearance of moiré and jaggies and delivers smooth, high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Using the recently introduced Sony “Imaging Edge™” mobile applications, the footage can be transferred to a smartphone , edited and shared easily across social networks.
 
The RX0 II introduces in-body electronic stabilisation  for steady footage, even when shot handheld. This can be enhanced even further when footage is exported to a smartphone or tablet running the ‘Movie Edit add-on'  application where the additional information captured during filming can be processed to produce a video with gimbal-like smoothness . An additional new feature that can be accessed via Sony ‘Movie Edit add-on' is ‘Intelligent Framing' where the selected subject is kept in the centre of the frame and image distortion is corrected in a final edit. Depending on where the video will be shared, the required aspect ratio can then be selected. 
 
Additional movie features of the RX0 II include Super Slow Motion recording at up to 1000 fps , uncompressed 4K HDMI output and simultaneous proxy movie recording.  Users can utilise Picture Profile, S-Log2 and Time Code / User Bit functions to ensure a final result that exactly matches their creative vision. 
 
Precision Photography
The versatility of the RX0 II means that it offers a host of stills photography features in addition to its video capabilities. It boasts an Anti-distortion Shutter of up to 1/32000 sec. and can shoot at up to 16 fps5 to capture any fleeting moment of emotion that passes across the subject's face. In an upgrade from the original RX0, colour reproduction has been enhanced to reproduce natural and vivid colour of human skin, and the optional ‘Soft Skin Effect' can be applied to cover minor blemishes and wrinkles. Rating and Protect functions can be applied in camera and a grouped display of continuously shot images can be viewed on the camera.
 
Sony's Eye AF, that is proving hugely popular with portrait photographers across the world, has been upgraded on the RX0 II. The speed, accuracy and operation of the Eye AF has been improved to make it even easier to capture a stunning portrait; a simple half press of the shutter button will lock-on to the eye of the subject. The focused eye can be selected (left / right / auto) in the menu or assigned to a custom button, allowing the user to concentrate on composition. 
 
The camera can be set for interval shooting, the results of which can be edited with Sony's “Imaging Edge” desktop application ‘viewer' into stunning time-lapse videos .
 
Multi-camera options
Up to 5 RX0 II cameras can be controlled wirelessly  using Sony ‘Imaging Edge Mobile'  application and between 6 to 50 cameras can be controlled via an access point. The RX0 II is also compatible with the Camera Control Box CCB-WD1  which enables up to 100 cameras to be connected and controlled in a wired multi-camera setup. Both of these multi-camera solutions unlock a whole new world of shooting opportunities and free video expression from any viewpoint that the user wishes to pursue.
 
The new RX0 II with the VCT-SGR1 Shooting Grip will be available for pre booking at Sony Boutique store in The Dubai Mall, Kansas store in Mall of The Emirates and Jumbo Electronics stores across the UAE from today with a launch bundle offer of AED 2,499.
