Sony RX0 is the Japanese company’s take on action cameras. It was released in 2017 and the Mark II is out now, but the original RX0 may still be a decent choice if you want to save some money. Of course, the newer model has better features, but the original is no slouch either.
This action camera packs a 15MP 1-inch stacked sensor, 24mm f/4 equivalent-lens, and is capable of continuous 1080p video recording at up to 60 fps. On top of that, it has incredible slow-motion capabilities but more on that later. Of course, the RX0 is also waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof without the need for any additional cases, which is definitely a great feature to have on an action camera. With all that said, let’s take a look at some of the best memory cards for Sony RX0.
Best MicroSD Cards for Sony RX0 Action Camera
First of all, we should let you know that the RX0 has a single microSD card slot, which supports UHS-I cards. Like we already mentioned the camera can record 1080p videos at up to 60 fps, but it also supports 4K video recording via HDMI output (of course, most people won’t be using this option as it would make your setup much bigger and heavier).
The RX0 can also shoot incredible slow-motion videos at up to 960 fps for a small amount of time. The quality is actually pretty good at up to 240 fps but quickly deteriorates at 480 fps and 960 fps. Still, it’s a great feature to have in such a small camera.
When recording video, Sony RX0 uses a codec that is not very demanding (50 Mbit/s or 6.25 MB/s), which means that any UHS-I microSD card will handle it with ease. That being said, these are our favorites – the best microSD cards for Sony RX0.
|MEMORY CARD||WRITE SPEED||READ SPEED||GET CARD|
|SanDisk Extreme microSDXC 128GB UHS-I||Up to 90 MB/s||Up to 170 MB/s|
|Samsung EVO MicroSDXC 128GB UHS-I||Up to 90 MB/s||Up to 100 MB/s|
Finally, we should note that this action camera doesn’t support cards larger than 128 GB. Of course, this is plenty and one of these cards should be enough to last you during your entire trip even if you’re recording a lot of videos. Of course, you can also opt for a few 64 GB cards instead, but we’d avoid 32 GB cards in this day and age. We hope our guide helped you find the right microSD card for your Sony RX0.
