Loving this challenge, and working on the full-length version, so this how far we have gotten yet. 
On the RX0 cameras, I am truly impressed: 
- They can take the punishment, and keep on shooting
- Image quality, even in poor lighting is really good - The slow-motion shots are done at 1200 iso, then cleaned up a little and upscaled to 1080. 

That they can be run of regular phone emergency charger... Norwegian winter is a battery killer, so that ended up saving the shot.

Second contest entry, and the final edit of the fire dancers, we called the video Ice and Fire. 

All performers are from Norway, mostly members of Cloudlight Fire tribe, while the music is from the Finnish Dark folk band Uinuos. 
Slow motion is filmed at 240 fps, at 640-1200 iso, while regular film is filmed at 200-500 iso. 

We have applied some post production to remove digital noise, colour correct, and other minor tweaks, but honestly. The RX0 was a superb performer, and I loved how "in danger" we could put it. (Under some scenes we did put it in a protective cage, as for instance, steel wool burns extremely hot and left the protective cage pitted and marked)



 

I am highly impressed for the Sony RX0 camera that was loaned to me. The slow motion simply breathtaking. I did shoot 1000 fps PAL for slow motion (Outputted to 50 fps makes a ultra smooth 20 times slow motion.) and normal speed footage was naturally at 50 fps. It made my dream come true so thank you Sony! Certain motions of punch are simply too fast for the naked eye to analyze.

 

Since RX0 is so compact, it is very easy to track subjects rapidly moving in the frame. For example when punching the dummy and especially with closeup you need really to be able to move the camera and for that it is just perfectly suited.

 

Here is my video where I display the impulse-momentum theorem. That is impulse is force*time (force = mass*acceleration) which results change of momentum (momentum is mass*velocity) by punching 120 kg dummy. In boxing terms the strikes are heavy handed that is ability to cause displacement. They will not break object like a extremely high force strike (sharpness of the blow) would like breaking a board which goes over its material tolerance threshold instead it will move the object. In boxing jargon, it is the ability to cause knockout by moving the head. By using the dummy simulator the neck and head movement especially is captured in its frame by frame shock wave travelling through the target causing twists and turns and great motions.

 

Please enjoy watching and thank you!

Here is my video from the Faroe Islands:

Great content here so far! It was a challenge to film with the RX0 when you are used to bigger Sony cameras but the camera has its benefits for certain applications and with a little extra help and a lot off tape I was able to mount it on my drone for aerials as well.
