Low Noise, High Power

From the lush plains of the Serengeti to the sand dunes of the Sahara -- when beautiful scenery inspires you, just pull out your Cyber-shot RX100 II and capture the moment in complete clarity. A 1.0 type back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor and a bright F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens combine for low noise levels, so image detail appears brighter and clearer. View and frame each shot with a tiltable LCD screen that works in bright sunlight, then share the photo with instant NFC one-touch connection or built-in Wi-Fi. High-end handling and versatility are both yours in this professional compact camera.

Low Levels of Noise

From a magically lit medieval city to a pristine stretch of sandy beach, whether it's night or day, capture every scene with striking detail. The 1.0 type back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor with 20.2 effective megapixels combines with a BIONZ processor to capture light more effectively than the renowned RX100. The back-illuminated sensor has a wide sensitive area, allowing more light to enter the camera. The result is clean images with low levels of noise.

See the Light with F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* Lens

Low-light is no problem for the RX100 II. The F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens has a wide aperture that allows even more light to enter the camera. It's key to creative effects, such as sharpening the focus of a subject against a smoothly-blurred background -- a round, seven-blade diaphragm gives texture to night shots. Meanwhile, powerful 3.6x optical zoom pulls you even closer to the scene so can capture detail with precision even in the dark.

Explore Every Angle with a Tiltable LCD Screen

Frame and view each scene with total flexibility using a tiltable LCD screen. Tilt as much as 45 degrees downwards to shoot over crowds, or 84 degrees upwards to capture the blue sky above you. Direct sunlight is not a problem: a strong yet extra fine LCD screen (1,229k-dot) packs each pixel closely together to boost brightness and visibility.

Embrace a Wireless Freedom

Forget cables. Shoot and share in no time with the NFC-enabled Cyber-shot. Simply place your camera against an NFC smartphone or tablet to share photos in an instant -- it's really that easy with NFC one-touch connection. Meanwhile, built-in Wi-Fi lets you send pictures to your smartphone so you can then upload to Facebook or Twitter.

Sony RX100M2 Advanced Cybershot Digital Compact Camera
Take Control and Get Creative

It's precision shooting made simple. Fine-tune an image with full control using automatic and manual exposure modes. Surrounding the lens, a smooth control ring allows fingertip adjustment of exposure, zoom, picture effect and other functions. And high shutter speed lets you shoot moving subjects in crisp detail with minimum effort.

Verified Purchase
I bought this camera a few weeks' ago because I was finding it impractical to lug around an SLR - especially as we like to take a lot of family photos when we're out and about with the kids and a bulky SLR is just another thing to carry. Sometimes, you just want to take a compact that can fit into a pocket without compromising (too much) on quality and with which you can quickly take spontaneous shots.

My dad has the RX100 and the photos were great, so I took the plunge and bought the RX100M2, which is more than double what I paid for my last compact camera. But the reviews on Amazon and photo/camera specialist sites have been very positive and encouraging. And they're right. The RX100M2 takes stunning photos in all kinds of light (it's exceptional in low light) - the photos are comparable with my Nikon D5100 and there's enough menu options to keep a very amateur photographer like myself happy. The photos are super sharp and vibrant and that's all you could ask of a camera.

I'm not overly bothered about the lack of view finder - I'm not a serious photographer by any stretch of the imagination. For me the LCD screen is perfect. A nice touch (which I suspect is available on many other cameras now) is that when you switch to different modes, the camera displays a little bit of text telling you what type of photos can be taken in that mode and how to get your desired effect within that mode. Sony has also taken note of Apple's simplicity, with a very slimline manual - a good read through of the manual and getting used to the camera took around an hour. After that, you're all set. It's easy to navigate around the different settings and menu options on the camera, so operating it is very easy.

By C Rowe
I'm going to review this from a real world perspective, from someone who wants to capture instant memories in high quality, without having to become an expert.

Having owned the Nex-5, Canon G9 and numerous other good cameras I wanted a camera that was ultra-portable, flip screen, wifi, gps and very high quality photos for a new baby.

This camera nearly fits the bill, it has an astounding amount of features and manual functions for the more accomplished photographer.

However, for point and shooters out there I've noticed the autofocus is slow and inaccurate resulting in many blurry photos. Switch to manual and you get crisp very high quality shots. But the trade off is this is fiddly and slow to focus manually, meaning either blurred or missed shots.

The wifi is sadly very mixed. To share or transfer photos is easy, but to remote control the camera is slow and it drops connections on an iPhone 5 with the PlayMemories app. Group shots are impossible as everyone gets bored before you can get a stable connection and take a photo.

Sony are slow to update the accompanying ios app, even though the reviews slam how poor and clunky it is (2.5 stars average as of today).

For me GPS is a big deal, I like looking back at photos by location. One can only assume it's not as big a deal for everyone enough to make Sony include it. So I'm not knocking off stars for it.

Overall this is an awesome camera for it's size, with a spec list as long as a phone book. In the real world, for me at least, it is too slow and/or too inaccurate to focus sharply on some moving objects like kids, and the wifi remote functionality is terrible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy upgrade from the RX100 26 July 2013
By MyKeyReviews TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 5:48 Mins
♦ Brief ♦

I purchased the RX100 last year, which has since been my favourite compact camera to use, and so far I haven't come across a camera that betters it, that is of course until this upgrade that brings some much welcomed extras.

Here are some of the upgraded features:

☑ An improved sensor (Exmor R CMOS Sensor); it's still the same size and has the same effective mega-pixels, but is now backlit which means it's able to pick up light by a further 40%.
☑ Hot-shoe; no idea why they didn't include this on the previous version, but at least it's here now.
☑ Tilt-able screen; one of the things I was longing for on the old RX100, this is one of my favourite upgrades by far!
☑ NFC (Near-field communications); I love this extra feature, by tapping the bottom of this camera onto your phone that has NFC enabled, it will connect them both together straight away.
If you don't have PlayMemories Mobile installed, it will take you to the store to download it (for free), if you have it installed already, it will connect them both together where you can then control the camera with your phone, though the modes are limited, you're able to take stunning quality photos and instantly transfer them over to your phone when taken.
☑ Now have an extra choice of recording in 25p addition to the previous 50i & 50p.
☑ PAL & NTSC choice; in the settings you can switch from one to the other which I'm sure certain people will love.

- Zoom is still 3.6x optical zoom, this is normal for high-quality compact cameras such as this one.
