A 42.4-megapixel1back-illuminated 35 mm full-frame Exmor R CMOS sensor, advanced BIONZ X image processing engine and fixed-lens design deliver unrivaled resolution and enhanced sensitivity. These technological advances keep images exquisitely detailed, natural, and well exposed all the way from their centers to edges, regardless of shooting conditions.
A back-illuminated 42.4-megapixel1full-frame Exmor R CMOS sensor with ISO 50-1024005, wide dynamic range, low noise and expanded circuit scale with copper wiring for faster6data transmission.
The world's most selected image sensors7
The ZEISS Sonnar T* 35 mm F2 lens maximizes the benefits of high sensor resolution and delivers brilliantly clear images from its center to the peripheral areas.
The RX1R II's fixed-lens design and improved signal processing optimize the performance of BIONZ X, which is also enhanced to support 14-bit uncompressed RAW format.
With advanced phase-detection and contrast-detection capabilities, the Fast Hybrid AF system in the RX1R II provides unconventionally speedy, accurate wide-area autofocus coverage and tracking performance. You will be able to shoot better, clearer stills at every opportunity without missing a single moment.
399 phase-detection AF points are packed within a large area of the image (providing coverage of nearly half of the entire frame) and AF response is about 30% faster6.
New AF-C focus mode and up to 5fps continuous shooting capabilities along with AF tracking help to ensure that you can reliably capture more climactic moments.
You can choose from three optical variable low-pass filter effect settings1: Off (to prioritize image resolution), Hi (to reduce moiré and color artifacts), and Standard (to balance those priorities). Each in its own way takes optimal advantage of the image sensor's 42.4-megapixel8resolution to deliver the ultimate image quality according to shooting intention and situation.
How does the RX1R II provide double duty that would otherwise require more than one conventional camera? Splitting of incident light flux  is controlled by varying voltage to the liquid crystal  between low-pass filter 1  and low-pass filter 2  in order to activate, deactivate, and modify low-pass filter effect. LPF bracketing simplifies comparison of LPF effects.
Compact enough to take anywhere, the RX1R II features sleek ergonomic controls, retractable EVF, tiltable LCD screen, and more.
NFC lets you touch your Android device to your RX1R II to quickly transfer photos/videos via Wi-Fi.

On the cutting edge of imaging technology, theCyber-shot DSC-RX1R II Digital CamerafromSonypacks in a full-frame 42.4-megapixel Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor behind a fixed Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm f/2 lens that grants users the ability to capture finely detailed images in an extraordinarily compact body. In addition to this, the RX1R II has a world's first variable optical low-pass filter system that can adjust voltage on a liquid crystal layer to adjust the light-splitting properties of the array. This feature allows users to prioritize detail, eliminate moire and aliasing, or strike a balance between the two.Located on the sensor are 399 phase-detect AF points in a Fast Hybrid AF system that can lock onto and track subjects quickly. This setting can also be used in the continuous shooting mode at up to the maximum of 5 fps for capturing fast moving action. In addition to this, the improved processing and speed from the RX1R II's sensor and processor combo enables capturing images at expanded sensitivities ranging from ISO 50-102400. And, Sony has added an uncompressed 14-bit RAW format for uncompromising images.In addition to these major advancements in imaging, the body design has been refined and the RX1R II is now equipped with a pop-up 0.39" 2.36M-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF. This viewfinder has an impressive magnification of 0.74x for comfortable, clear eye-level viewing and has a 4-lens optical system with two glass molded aspherical elements to ensure crisp, vibrant imagery. Along with this, the 3.0" 1,228.8k-dot LCD monitor can now tilt upwards 109 and down 41 for working in a variety of positions and angles.On the front of the camera is the impressive Zeiss 35mm lens which provides shooters with a classic wide angle focal length well-suited to street photography and documentary work, an excellent pairing for a compact and unobtrusive camera. The lens also offers a fast f/2 maximum aperture for creating images with a shallow depth-of-field and for working more easily in low light. Along with this, the lens utilizes three aspherical elements, including one advanced aspherical that will minimize aberrations and distortion.Video has also seen some notable improvement thanks to the implementation of the high bit rate XAVC S format. This format will record Full HD 1080p video at 50 Mbps at frame rates up to 60 fps. Also, the camera will be able to capture HD 720p video at up to 120 fps for slow motion and it has a 3.5mm jack for using external microphones and audio devices.Numerous other features, such as Bright Monitoring, Eye AF, support for 4:3 and 1:1 aspect ratios, and ISO auto minimum shutter speed have made their way into this model. Also, the camera has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC (Near Field Communication) for pairing the device with a smartphone or tablet for remote control and transfer of images. In addition to this, the RX1R II supports Sony's PlayMemories Camera apps for adding advanced functionality to the camera later on.
