First look at the new Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II
On this video Allan Weitz from B&H talks to Kenta Honjo from Sony and discusses the newly released compact full-frame camera from Sony, the Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II.
Sony introduced a very interesting upgrade to the original RX1R – this new version (the RX1R II) uses the same 42MP sensor of the A7R II but in a smaller body (with a very capable Zeiss 35mm f/2 lens) together with a few other interesting improvements such as a pop up viewfinder and a 399 Phase-Detect AF Point that’s 30% faster than the original Cyber-shot RX1, 5fps continuous shooting speed and the first ever electronically-controlled variable low-pass filter.
Here are some of the specs for the Sony RX1R II:
- 42MP Full-Frame Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor (similar to that of the A7R II).
- BIONZ X Image Processor .
- 399 Phase-Detect AF Points & 5 fps Burst.
- Lens – ZEISS Sonnar T* 35 mm F2 lens.
- 0.39″ 2.36M-Dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF – pop up.

- 3.0″ 1,228.8k-Dot Tilting LCD Monitor (but no touch screen sadly).
- ISO 102,400 with a silent shutter mode (thanks to the electronic shutter).

- Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC.
- Weight – 507 grams / 1.9 oz.
