Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II

 

True breakthrough products are rare in consumer electronics and perhaps even more rare in the digital camera space. The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 was one of those rare products that caught the attention of casual photographers, enthusiasts and critics...

The RX100 II performs much the same as its RX100 predecessor, turning out some of the best image quality we've seen from a compact camera. With the addition of Wi-Fi connectivity and a BSI sensor, it's at the top of its class in terms of performance...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II compact camera offers a few worthwhile upgrades when compared with the original RX100, but comes in at a higher asking price.

Excellent high ISO performance. 1-inch image sensor. Wide aperture lens. Customizable controls. Large, tilting LCD. Minimal shutter lag. Raw image capture. Wi-Fi. Hot shoe with EVF support.

Very expensive. Limited zoom range. In-camera battery charging only. Could be sharper at the edges of the frame at 28mm.

The RX100 II doesn't have a viewfinder built-in, but unlike its predecessor you can opt to add one. It supports the same EVF as the RX1 and HX50V. It's an expensive ($450) accessory, but it's an excellent EVF that serious shooters will want to consider...

Sony DSC-RX100M2 Preview

 

Last summer (2012), we previewed the Sony DSC-RX100, which was then the "world's first 1.0-inch type Exmor CMOS image sensor." For summer 2013, Sony has upgraded the RX100 as the DSC-RX100M2 (or Mark II). Both RX-series cameras have a 20.2 megapixel...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is a premium compact camera aimed at the keen enthusiast photographer. The RX100 II offers an integrated 3.6x, 28-100mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* zoom lens with a fast aperture of f/1.8 at the wide-angle setting, a new...

The new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II is undoubtedly a better camera than the original RX100, both in terms of features and image quality, but it's also a lot more expensive than the original model, which continues to be sold as part of the premium...

Sony RX100 II

 

In the summer of 2012, the debut of the Sony RX100 answered the prayers of enthusiast shooters looking for a capable yet compact second camera. More than a few photographers who'd resisted trading up to an interchangeable lens-camera due to the size,...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II

 

The hot shoe that allows for the addition of accessories catapults this camera into enthusiast territory. Such accessories include external flashguns, an electronic viewfinder and a remote trigger, though each of these adds to the cost of the camera....

Excellent image quality, Broad feature set, Good low-light performance

Slippery body, No touch screen

Camera Review: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II

 

You may want to put down your big DSLR rig for this high-quality pocket camera.

Excellent still and video quality for a pocket camera; very fast autofocus and shot-to-shot speeds; surprisingly good at high ISOs in low light; small form factor lets you take it anywhere; handy, tilting, 3-inch rear display

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II Digital Camera Review

 

The best gets better—and pricier.

High-end point-and-shoots like the RX100 II tend to make shopping a bit tough for camera shoppers. Unless you have your heart set on the II, you’ll be cross-shopping with a bunch of really great options, many of which may better fit your needs.

Sony DSC-RX100 II Review

 

The Sony DSC-RX100 II is an updated version of the RX100, which in our opinion brings mostly surface level upgrades to the camera. The sensor and the lens remain the same as the predecessor, which is bound to generate mixed feelings, however, all is...

Large 1-inch sensor allows high ISO shooting without much noise, Fast f/1.8 aperture at 28mm end, Extremely fast AF, Incredibly sturdy and compact

No quick access to all settings, Telephoto aperture of f/4.9 is slow

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II

 

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II is a pocket-sized camera with a large 20 Megapixel sensor and a 3.6x Carl Zeiss zoom with a bright focal ratio. Announced in June 2013, it's an upgraded version of the original RX100 launched one year previously. Depending...

Big sensor, pocketable compact form ; Articulated LCD screen ; Built in Wifi with NFC ; Excellent low light & high ISO performance ; Focus peaking ; Hotshoe supports external flash, EVF and mic ; Optional remote cable

Weak stabilisation ; Slow f4.9 maximum aperture at 100mm ; Digital zoom can't be disabled for movies ; Screen isn't touch-sensitive ; No miniature effect mode for movies

Like the best-selling RX100 before it, the Sony RX100 II delivers the same magic potion of large sensor performance in a compact format. When I wrote about the RX100 back in 2012 I said some people will 'complain it lacks a hotshoe, or an accessory...
