Sony introduces the world’s smallest and lightest premium compact camera, the RX0 II (DSC-RX0M2), which builds upon the waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, crush-proof, and ultra-compact qualities of its predecessor. This new model adds internal 4K recording, an adjustable LCD screen that tilts upward 180 degrees / downward 90 degrees, and new image stabilization solutions for video recording. Featuring a 1.0-type stacked 15.3-megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and an advanced BIONZ X image processing engine and in-body electronic stabilization for steady footage, even when shot handheld.

“With its 1.0 type sensor, Zeiss lens and multi-camera capability all packed in a compact waterproof body, the original RX0 was designed to enable new forms of creative expression. By adding a 4K internal recording, 180 degree LCD and upgrading many of the still image capabilities on the new RX0 II, we have further built upon this concept, allowing many new and different types of creators – ranging from travel photographers to vloggers – to realize the benefits of such a unique, versatile form factor,” said Neal Manowitz, deputy president of Imaging Products and Services Americas at Sony Electronics.
