Sony introduces a new release cable for the RX0 for dual camera shooting

Sony has just announced the launch of a new Release Cable – VMC-MM2 – which allows for convenient dual-camera shooting. Essentially, you can mount your RX0 on your camera via the hotshoe or a bracket/rig and trigger both at the same time with just a press of the main camera’s shutter button. Two shots for one so to speak.

Personally, we’d think you’d prefer having the RX0 mounted facing a different direction than your main camera as that would give you a completely different angle. Perhaps a wireless version of this is coming up next? As it is though, the setup will allow you to get two variations of the same shot with different depth of field or frame rate settings so that might be handy for videos rather than stills.

Pricing for the VMC-MM2 hasn’t been released yet, but the unit is said to be available in selected Asia Pacific countries by April this year.
