Rugged by design, built to perform
Reflecting the camera's robust construction and go-anywhere functionality, it sports a simple and practical ribbed design, with clean lines and no unnecessary protrusions. The extra super duralumin body is dependably rigid but light in weight.
Sharp, high-resolution still photos and movies
Packed into the RX0 II's tiny body is a wealth of cutting-edge imaging technology, designed to deliver beautiful images in whatever shooting situation you may encounter. Clear Image Zoom enables up to 2x zoom with minimal loss of quality.
Stunning detail and low noise
The 1.0-type Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor works in tandem with the advanced BIONZ X™ image-processing engine to provide a wide dynamic range, reduced noise, natural-looking details and rich tonal gradations.
ZEISS® Tessar T* lens
The wide-angle ZEISS® Tessar T* 24mm F4 lens delivers beautiful images in just about any shooting situation, with enhanced contrast and sharpness, and reduced distortion.
Soft Skin Effect
For better-looking portrait shots and selfies, the camera's Soft Skin mode reduces small facial wrinkles and skin dullness while preserving the clarity of the subject's eyes and mouth.
When you're taking portrait shots and selfies, the RX0 II's Eye AF function is conveniently set up to automatically focus on the subject's eyes.
Beautiful, high-resolution movies
Internal 4K movie recording with full pixel readout
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 travelling or when you're capturing scenes from daily life.
Make great movies even better
New electronic image stabilisation helps you capture great-looking movies, while the Movie Edit add-on for your smartphone achieves smooth images, similar to shooting with a gimbal. The Movie Edit add-on can also keep your subject in-frame automatically, even when you crop movies for smartphone portrait screens and social-media sharing.
Capture life from any angle
Ultra-compact and ready for adventure
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. And its simple design and lack of protrusions make it easier to set up, pack and store.
Waterproof/dustproof down to 10 meters/33 feet
Whether you're snorkeling in fresh water or seawater, 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.
Shockproof from a height of 2.0 meters/6.5 feet
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 2.0 meters (6.5 feet) when LDC is retracted.
Crushproof up to 200kgf/440lbf/2000N
Stow the camera comfortably in a carrying bag or a pocket and bring it wherever you go without concern.
Expand your creative options
Tiltable LCD monitor perfect for selfies
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.
Extended control with the optional shooting grip
The VCT-SGR1 Shooting Grip (available for hire separately) has integrated controls to let you trip the shutter release and operate the record button and the camera's zoom from the grip itself. The shooting grip can also be converted for use as a table-top tripod.
External microphone for high-quality sound
In spite of its ultra-compact size, the RX0 II comes equipped with a microphone jack, so you can attach an external mic (available for hire separately) for better quality sound in your vlogs and movies.
Packed with imaging power
Super slow-motion movies from 960fps/1000fps shooting
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.
Interval recording15 for time-lapse movies
The camera's new interval recording feature enables continuous shooting with a set interval between 1 and 60 seconds. These still images can then be edited into a time-lapse movie on a PC.
Continuous shooting at up to 16fps with reduced blackout
The RX0 II's continuous shooting capabilities allow you to better capture decisive moments of action and fleeting facial expressions. Up to 12916 JPEG (Standard) images can be shot in one burst.
Anti-distortion Shutter at up to 1/32,000 sec.
The Anti-distortion Shutter is capable of shutter speeds of up to 1/32,000 sec., and it's designed to minimise the rolling shutter phenomenon which can distort images of fast-moving objects.
Picture Profiles to meet pro-level demand
With the Picture Profiles feature and S-Log2, you can set the overall tone of movie productions from the camera body, adjusting parameters that affect the final look of your movies.
Wireless multi-camera control – the perfect setup for casual use with a smartphone

Wireless connectivity gives you greater flexibility in positioning your cameras, which are sturdy and small enough to go nearly anywhere. NB: Not available during 4K or 120p (NTSC)/100p (PAL) movie recording.
