Camera control is offered via the Sony Play Memories smartphone app for iOS and Android.

A 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor provides extended dynamic range and high-speed readout, even at super slow-motion rates up to 960/1000 fps. This anti-distortion shutter features speeds up to 1/32000 per second, capable of freezing the action with minimal skew. Customize your image capture with multiple picture profiles including the versatile S-Log2 gamma setting.

Internal recording options include 24/25/30/50 and 60 fps at 1080p, all at 50 Mb/s in the XAVC codec. Still photos can be captured in both raw and JPEG with shutter speeds as fast as 1/32,000 per second, and in continuous-shooting bursts up to 16 fps. Uncompressed UHD 4K video is output via HDMI for capture to external recorders. The Sony RX0's additional pro-style features include manual- and auto-focus modes, a 20" minimum focus distance, S-Log2 recording, NTSC and PAL compatibility, and on-camera control buttons.

The Sony RX0 includes a rechargeable NP-BJ1 battery, an AC adapter, a micro-USB cable, and a wrist strap. The camera is waterproof down to 33' and can be used down to 330' with the optional MPK-HSR1 waterproof housing (available separately). The durable RX0 camera is also shockproof from impacts up to 6.5', and crushproof under weights up to 440 pounds.

question

can the 1/4 sec slowest shutter be extended by a firmware update? the lack of a long exposure makes this camera almost useless in anything darker than an indoor scene.
Asked by: brandon
At the moment I am unaware of a firmware update that is available that allows you to extend the shutter.

question

Does the camera make internal timelapse?
Asked by: Amir
I was able to do an extended tethered timelapse via the remote app on the Mac to both simultaneously charge and trigger the RX0 (which isnt ideal outside) but in the end the slowest shutter of 1/4 sec makes this a terrible timelapse option.
