Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II 42.4MP Digital Camera

The Sony RX1R II Professional Compact Digital Camera packs cutting-edge performance technology into an ultra portable body. It features a fixed-lens design seamlessly integrated with an advanced 32mm full-frame CMOS sensor with 42.4 effective megapixels. This is coupled with a BIONZ X signal processing system which capture images in outstanding resolution. The Sony RX1R II is equipped with fast accurate auto-focusing to ensure crisp, sharp image results. Thanks to a retractable electronic viewfinder, you can conveniently compose and preview shots. With its large aperture ZEISS Sonnar T* f/2 lens, speedy AF and the world's first optical variable low-pass filter, the RX1R II proves just how harmoniously cutting-edge performance and convenience can co-exist. This compact digital camera makes it easy to capture high quality shots wherever you go.

Exmor R CMOS​ Image Sensor

The 35mm full-frame Exmor R CMOS sensor integrates astonishing 42.4-megapixelresolution to achieve unsurpassed image quality. Its back-illuminated structure enhances light collection efficiency and expands the circuitry scale the copper wiring layer for 3.5 times faster data output. Sensitivity is greatly expandable to ISO 50-102400 for still shooting. Low-noise performance reveals fine details and subtle nuances of images. These enhancements make it possible for this Sony digital camera to deliver readout of extraordinarily high-resolution images, AF response, and continuous shooting capability, all at high speed.

BIONZ X Image Processing Engine

The BIONZ X image processing engine wisk all 42.4 effective megapixels of data from the 35mm full-frame Exmor R CMOS sensor. Diffraction-reducing technology maintains sharp, fine clarity even at smaller aperture (higher f-number) settings. Area-specific noise reduction reduces noise adaptively according to image area characteristics and reproduces greater detail. The fixed-lens design of the RX1R II also optimizes processing for the lens and the sensor. That means extraordinarily fast, faithful reproduction of every nuance of a scene’s light and texture under all conditions.

Continuous Shooting

AF-C (Continuous AF) focus mode enables the RX1R II to track moving subjects while maintaining sharp focus, even when shooting continuously at 5fps, thanks largely to the 399-phase-detection-AF-point system's widespread autofocus coverage throughout a large portion of the image area.

Full HD Movie Recording and XAVC S Format

The RX1R II supports the XAVC S movie recording format, for capturing the quality of Full HD motion picture footage at frame rates of 60p (50p), 30p (25p), or 24p, and at a high bitrate of 50 Mbps. This increases your capability to express your visions in truer images that contain finer details and minimal compression noise, moiré, and jaggies.

Optical Variable Low-pass Filter

LPF effect settings16 take advantage of the sensor's high 42.4-megapixel resolution13 to deliver the ultimate image quality for your needs. Choose among Off (to prioritize image resolution), Hi (to reduce moiré and color artifacts), or Standard (to balance those priorities) settings to achieve the image character you're aiming for. Low-pass filter bracketing lets you preview effects of various settings.

Large-Aperture ZEISS Sonnar T 35mm F2 lens

The 35mm fixed focal length ZEISS Sonnar T lens features a maximum aperture of F2 and a proprietary high-precision AA (advanced aspherical) lens element, in an extremely compact barrel. The nine-blade diaphragm delivers smooth foreground/background defocusing that makes the subject stand out brilliantly. The optical performance of the ZEISS lens allows the precision high-resolution image sensor to deliver the ultimate in image quality.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II 42.4MP Digital Camera SKU: DSCRX1RM2B

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony RX1R II Absolutely gem of a camera even though it was released in the US in 2016. Camera is still so incredibly relevant and just a masterpiece much like Sony’s Signature products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tiny tank I sold all my photo gear last year and I really miss not having a quality camera. In my search RX1R ll caught my eye. Small, light with the bells and whistle's of larger cameras. I'm still going through the testing faze, so far so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the II, but... I have had the original RX1 for many years now. The image quality to this day is absolutely outstanding. The downsides are the viewfinder, auto-focus, and the battery life. I understand the focus, and the viewfinder are greatly improved with the II. I am holding off on replacing my trusty I because I keep hearing rumors about a III which might be 40mm and f1.8.....hoping that is right around the corner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite camera! I've shot with Sony cameras starting in 2012 with their NEX-5n. I moved to the a7 in 2014, then the a7II and the a7rIII. I found a good deal on an RX1 and loved the idea of a small point and shoot with a full frame sensor. I loved it so much and it quickyl became my go to camera. I bought the RX1RII becasue of the updated hybrid autofocus system that is snappy and much improved from the first version. The popup EVF is much nicer than having to attach to the hotshoe like the older version. This is my favorite camera, it gives me joy to use each time I pick it up. It goes everywhere with me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the best! Had the RX1 now owning the RX1R II which makes life a lot easier because of the faster AF and the build-in EVF. The Megapixels are a welcome addition. Best thing though: they kept the ZEISS Sonnar 35/2 which still is one of my alltime favorites. I use it mostly always wide open. The Bokeh transition is unbelievable. I shoot the RX alongside my Nikon Z7 but the 35 and Its compact form factor makes it the perfect reportage camera. People are just reacting differently to it. Was thinking about the Q2 but 28mm is just not my cup of tea. One more thing: had my cameras through really bad weather, beaches and hot kitchens and never had a problem. Who needs Weather sealing, if you not drain your cameras?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Legendary Camera - please update to RX1R III now! I have the Sony RX1, the RX1R m1 and m2 but this camera needs two things to make it the best compact full frame ever made: 1) better AF (use the latest A7 or A9 tech) and 2) better battery (use the Sony Z battery if possible). Sony can leave the sensor and lens alone because they are exceptionally good. Just those two changes, Sony, and you will have a legendary full frame compact that will be better than the Leica Q2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Walking Around Camera This is my go to camera. When traveling I always take my RX1RII. On major trips, it's in the bag with my a7RII. Although you're stuck with a fixed 35mm lens, it is a fabulous point & shot camera and much easier to carry around than my a7. I love the low light capability and the image quality of this little camera. One photographer called it a great street camera....I couldn't agree more. It is expensive, but in my opinion, if you can afford it...get it! You will fall in love with it!
Date published: 2019-07-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from great cameras but expect much better quality price i have had a bunch of sony cameras, from the NEX series to the RX100 to the A7 and now the RX1R ii. None of the cheaper models i had lasted too long but they were much cheaper with this camera i expect better, "professional" quality as sony calls it. the image quality is very nice no doubt but some of the controls feel subpar for this price. Flimsy control wheels etc. now the EVF simply stopped working for now particular reason. For this price a three year lifespan is just embarrassing .
