Sony RX1R II

 

Think all compact cameras are rubbish? The Sony RX1R II proves that theory wrong. This is a camera you can fit into your coat pocket, but has the same-size full-frame sensor as models like the Canon 5D MKIII, which you might struggle to fit in some...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II review

 

The king of compact cameras gets even more resolution, with fantastic results

Simply sublime image quality ; Genuinely useful upgrades over the original RX1 ; Outstanding build quality

Seriously expensive ; Battery life could be better ; Autofocus feels slow against cheaper competition

Overkill for most, with a few flaws, but that doesn’t stop us wanting one - the RX1R II is a phenomenal luxury compact camera

Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review: Full-frame fun and foibles

 

When it first launched at the end of 2012, the Sony Cyber-shot RX1 was a camera like no other. Its full-frame sensor and fixed 35mm lens made it a distinctive shooter for the high-end market. Sure, it had its imperfections, but that large sensor gave...

Huge scale images, that Carl Zeiss lens is great and produces superb bokeh at f/2.0, great aperture and focus controls, built-in electronic viewfinder that is retractable if you want to hide it

Poor battery life, auto white balance sometimes off, not the fastest of autofocus, close-up focus limitations, high ISO limitations (uneven gradients beyond ISO 1600), some barrel distortion

At first glance the RX1R II might not seem that different to the original model. But there's plenty new here: the ingenious little pop-up electronic viewfinder, the new tilt-angle screen mechanism and, of course, that sensor with huge 42-megapixel...

Sony RX1R II review

 

Sony's technological innovations continue to impress with its latest fixed-lens, full-frame camera

Amazing resolution ; Small size ; Retractable electronic viewfinder

Screen not touch sensitive ; No optical image stabilisation ; Poor battery life

The Sony RX1R II delivers superb image quality in a neat, compact body. The electronic viewfinder is great, though the processing speed and battery life are poor and there's no optical image stabilization.

Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II

 

Sharing the same 42.2 MP sensor and BIONZ X image processor with Sony’s α7R II, the RX1R II has an integral ZEISS® Sonnar T* 35mm f/2 lens. The sensor has an impressive 399 phase detection AF points that work in conjunction with 25 contrast AF points...

Sony RX1R II review

 

Sony's RX1R II is one of the best compact cameras money can buy

The RX1R II is an amazing camera with its 42.4-megapixel full-frame sensor, variable OLPF, built-in EVF, compact size, and f/2.0 35mm prime lens. However, it’s still a $3,300 point-and-shoot, and as sophisticated as it is, it’s a lot of money (although...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II

 

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II puts an incredible high-resolution full-frame image sensor and fixed lens into a form factor that's almost pocket friendly.

Compact design. Full-frame 42-megapixel image sensor. Sharp 35mm f/2 lens. Excellent picture quality. Variable OLPF filter. Integrated pop-up EVF. Tilting rear display. 1080p120 video. Wi-Fi.

Lens shows some barrel distortion. Limited battery life. Doesn't include external battery charger. Uncomfortable focus select switch. Omits flash.

Conclusions It's easy to call the RX1R II one of the best full-frame compacts on the market—it doesn't have a lot of competition. But one shouldn't understate just how far cameras have come when you see how much power Sony has put into such a small...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II review

 

The Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II is a full-frame, 42MP compact camera with a fixed 35mm F2 lens. The successor to the 24MP RX1R, the Mark II inherits a lot of technology from Sony's flagship a7R II mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

Ultra-compact: Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review

 

There's no denying the appeal of Sony's RX1R II. It promises high-resolution full-frame image quality that's bolstered by an impressive autofocus system, reasonable depth-of-field control from its 35mm F2 lens and a compact form factor that encourages...

The Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II is the latest in the company's line of compact, fixed-lens full-frame digital cameras. It inherits the same basic body shape and ZEISS 35mm F2 lens as its predecessors, the RX1 and RX1R, but almost everything beneath the...
