Sony-RX1R-II-camera-imageSony announced a new edition of RX1R fullframe compact camera that features same Sony A7R II 42 MP hybrid CMOS AF sensor with 399 Active Phase AF points. With the introduction of Hybrid AF CMOS sensor the AF speed of the camera increased upto 30% over the RX1R. Now the camera supports 5FPS shooting with continuous AF tracking.

The Sony RX1R II camera is world’s first camera with optical variable low-pass filter that can be set to off, based on the user and situation demand.


The recently announced camera features same Macro switch ring like RX1 that toggles macro mode on and off, the camera can captures subjects as close as 14cm.

However despite of having Same sensor as of Sony A7R II camera Sony RX1 R II is unable to capture 4K video like the A7R II due to its manufacture limitations.


on the rear side of the camera we have a bright 3″ 1.2M-dot tilting LCD, which tilts up by 109 degrees and we also have a retractable 2.4M-dot XGA OLED viewfinder that helps you a lot while shooting your compositions during sunlight.

However Soy reserved Image stabilization and 4K feature for third genartion of RX1 series camera, we will sure see all these feature in upcoming version of RX1R III camera. Wi-Fi and NFC are built in, allowing remote shooting from a smartphone.

    I kind of wonder why Sony keeps on fighting this “pixel-race” with small cameras? Especially since almost all contests are won by photographers with partly very old 16 MP-Nikons/Canons. The only reason I would change now is the possibility of cropping. Obviously with 40+ MP one has defenitely enough pixels to cut – and you still have a fine picture w/o grain. But otherwise…? Anyway I congratulate SONY for this fantastic technical master piece! I just hope they will put it into the new NIKON D5 coming next year!;-))
