Sony RX1R II Jam-packs 42 Mighty Megapixels Into Full-Frame Compact

Thursday, October 15, 2015


Without question, Sony makes the best compact cameras possible. However, if you were in any way disappointed with RX100 IV point-and-shoot, Sony has produced the RX1R II , a full-frame pocket-sized camera with 42.4 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is, in case you are not already familiar, vey similar tothe recently announced A7R II mirrorless camera.

With the new RX1R, Sony is introducing a retractable 2.4 million-dot XGA OLED viewfinder, as well as the “world’s first” optical variable low pass filter, as Sony calls it, that you can turn on and off depending on your desired sharpness strength of the images. Fixed lens is a 35 mm (f2.0) ZEISS Sonnar T*. The only thing missing here is a 4K video recording, but you won’t be too disappointed when you find that there’s the 1080p shooting at 24, 30 and even 60 fps. The maximum ISO is set to 102,400, when expanded. If you are interested in buying RX1R II, the expected price is $3,300 and it will be available in the stores in November.
