When beautiful scenery inspires the artist within, capture every exquisite detail with the compact Cyber-shot RX100 II. You'll enjoy extraordinary light sensitivity, breathtaking image quality and beautiful background defocusing thanks to a newly developed 1.0-inch back-illuminated CMOS sensor and f/1.8 lens.
Amazing Low-Light Shots
Extremely high sensitivity and remarkably low noise are achieved by Sony's massive new 20.2-megapixel Exmor R™ CMOS sensor. Its back illumination technology collects light more efficiently and combines with image processing advances to bring noise to unbelievably low levels–equivalent to noise one stop lower sensitivity in the renowned RX100 II.
Beautiful Defocused Backgrounds
Legendary Carl Zeiss optics and unrivaled Sony imaging technology merge in a compact, high-performance lens that offers supremely accurate performance, powerful 3.6x (28-100mm at 35mm equivalent) optical zoom capabilities and an enormous f/1.8 aperture with almost perfectly round seven-blade diaphragm for beautiful background defocusing.
Wireless Sharing to Smartphones and Tablets
Touch your Android smartphone or tablet to the camera to create a connection. No setup is required beyond downloading the free PlayMemories Mobile app to your device. Made possible by NFC technology, once connected, you can remotely control the camera's shutter release from your mobile device and instantly receive the captured image via Wi-Fi.
High-Fidelity BIONZ Image Processing Engine
Sony's BIONZ imaging engine employs powerful algorithms to transform data captured by the CMOS sensor into beautiful images with accurate color, rich tonal gradations and minimal noise. It brings out the beauty of images captured at high ISO settings–up to ISO 12800, which surpasses the RX100–and handles the most demanding tasks with precision.
Expand Your Shooting Options
A Multi Interface Shoe lets you attach wide-ranging accessories for photo and movie shooting. These include an electronic viewfinder, powerful external flash unit and stereo microphone. You can also connect with a compatible remote control via Multi Terminal.
Shoot From The Hip
The 3.0-inch, 1,229k-dot Xtra Fine monitor displays scenes extra clearly, even in bright sunlight. It can be tilted up to 45° downward to shoot over crowds or up to 84° upward to capture pets eye to eye. You'll enjoy clear, faithful reproduction thanks to WhiteMagic wizardry, which combines white and RGB pixels to boost brightness and visibility.
Intuitively Adjust Settings With the Control Ring
Simply rotate the control ring around the lens to adjust camera settings with ease. It turns smoothly and steplessly with clear feedback on the LCD to provide precise, intuitive adjustment usually reserved for SLR cameras.
