Users can now shoot high-quality super slow motion movies at high frame rates up to 960fps/1,000fps5 (40x normal frame rate). Also, the Super-speedy shutter (Conventional rolling shutter, RX0 anti-distortion shutter) reduces distortion in shots of fast-moving subjects.
The ZEISS Tessar T* 24 mm13 F4 lens delivers high-resolution images with less image distortion in peripheral areas, despite its wide-angle lens design. This ZEISS lens intensifies recordings’ contrast and sharpness.
The compact, simple, protrusion-free, rectangular body is advantageous in combination with optional accessories.

Bluetooth is also available and allows simultaneous remote power on/off operation.
The super slow motion at frame rate of up to 960/1000 fps is available to capture split-seconds of action in movies. Shooting at 480/500 fps and 240/250 fps especially maintain fine images at nearly HD quality. For production flexibility, users can use Clean HDMI output to record uncompressed video to an external recorder in your choice of formats and bitrates, including non-compressed 4K movie, and monitor the footage.
Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning image editing software that provides high-end image quality RAW development, easy management of your image files, and powerful editing tools, is available in this action camera. For movie shooting, people can choose MF (manual focus) or PF (preset focus) mode. If you select PF mode, the RX0 automatically focuses on a subject in a range beyond approx. 1 m. Also, while the RX0 is in PF mode, if you activate the “NEAR” focusing range, the camera automatically focuses on a nearby subject.
