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 II - 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 degrees downward to shoot over crowds or up to 84 degrees 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.
20.2 MP 1-inch Exmor R Sensor
The world's first 1.0" CMOS sensor featuring an Exmor R image sensor technology. With this back-illuminated technology, the sensor doubles light sensitivity and combines with Sony's Column A/D Conversion to reduce noise by half - a great help when photographing in dimly lit environments. Markedly reduced noise is evident even when high-sensitivity settings are used for capturing night landscapes or indoor scenes.
High speed Auto Focus
To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor R CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver high-quality image signals to the camera's BIONZ processor, which provides intelligent response data to a new high speed actuator motor in the lens. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds even in low light.
New Multi Interface Shoe connector
Users can expand photographic and movie shooting possibilities by attaching optional accessories via the Multi Interface Shoe, including an electronic viewfinder, powerful external flash and stereo microphone. You can also connect with a compatible remote control via Multi Terminal.
Auto Object Framing
Give your photos a professional look with Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus, Auto Object Framing not only turns ordinary photos into stunning compositions but does so automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly.
Picture Effect mode
Realize your creative potential with Picture Effect, a fun and simple way to convert ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Effects are Soft Focus, Posterization, Retro Photo, High Contrast Monochrome, Rich-tone Monochrome, Miniature, Soft High-key, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Partial Color, Watercolor Painting, HDR Painting, and Illustration.
Carl Zeiss T F1.8 3.6x optical zoom
The large-diameter F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens delivers refined background defocusing - bokeh. A premium multi-layered T coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection.
Comfortable control ring for manual operation
A unique control ring around the lens works in combination with an intuitive, displayed user interface for meticulous SLR-type control over settings that satisfies even the most fastidious users. The control ring can be assigned to adjust various features (at various values) from basics like zooming and aperture to creative functions like Picture Effect. Moreover, it turns smoothly and seamlessly, allowing quiet, click-free usage while shooting movies including a new step-zoom function that enables instant selection of commonly used focal lengths.
Full HD Movies at 60p/60i/24p
Capture HD Movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. AVCHD codec delivers stunning picture quality. MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web.
Optical SteadyShot with 3-way Active Mode
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization reduces shake and blur by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths.
Expanded ISO Sensitivity
With a new Exmor R sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony's flagship SLT-A99V, the DSC-RX100M2 easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 160 to ISO 12800.
Capture JPEG files, RAW files, or both
The DSC-RX100M2 saves pictures as compact JPEG files and/or ultra-high quality RAW files. RAW files save images prior to de-mosaicking, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC.
Tiltable 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD
The tiltable 3" (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine LCD Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up approx. 84 degrees and down approx. 45 degrees. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.
Multi-aspect ratio recording for still images
Capture still images in any of four aspect ratios - 1:1, 2:3, 4:3, or 16:9 (vertical to horizontal). This provided the freedom to choose a ratio that matches the scene or the specific shooting purpose.
