20.2MP (effective) 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor
The world's first(1) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip enables up to 40x super slow motion and up to 1/32000 super-high-speed shutter beyond human perception. The extended circuit features higher signal processing capacity and more than five times faster(2) high-speed readout than conventional models.
BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture
Digital cameras convert light captured by their sensor into digital images. Since the engine that powers conversion is as important as your lens and sensor, the RX10 II features the high-speed BIONZ X processor for more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise while shooting photos and movies.
Bright ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* F2.8 zoom lens
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* zoom lens provides a constant F2.8 large aperture throughout the 24-200 mm(3) zooming range. Composed of 7 aspherical elements, this lens captures awesome close-ups and transforms movies and stills into works of art. Pro-style Manual Ring works as a zoom and aperture controller (with click sound on/off for silent operation) , etc.
Direct 4K movie recording (4) (5) via camera alone
The RX10 II can record high-precision 4K movie(4) ,(5) data directly on a memory card inserted into the body while suppressing moire and jaggies. A front-end LSI that handles mass volume data through full-pixel readout at higher speed lets the camera suppress image distortion of moving subjects due to the rolling shutter phenomenon.
Super slow motion(6) at maximum of 40x
Using the mode dial to select HFR, it's easy to create super slow motion movies containing split-second moments of action. Choose shooting frame rates of 960/1000fps, 480/500fps, or 240/250fps (NTSC/PAL) (7), depending on which is most suitable for your needs. The end trigger mode also enables you to capture 2 or 4 seconds before the MOVIE button is pressed, letting you capture the decisive moment.
Super-high-speed shutter of 1/32000 sec.
This next-generation 1/32000 super-high-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter works to minimize image distortion caused by the rolling shutter phenomenon. The extraordinarily fast shutter speed also allows you to produce photos with background defocusing using a large aperture setting even under extremely bright conditions at a maximum of EV 19(8) .
Quick precision autofocusing up to 0.09 sec.(9)
AF performance of the RX10 II reaches speeds as fast as 0.09 second(9) . To help you capture momentary shutter opportunities without fail, the adaptable lens also provides the rapid, reliable Direct Drive Super Sonicwave Motor (SSM) for smooth and highly precise focus driving that works together with Fast Intelligent AF.
Up to 14fps(10) continuous shooting without blackout
Thanks to the new super-high-speed image sensor -- and despite its 20.2 MP(11) high pixel count -- the camera features accelerated readout speed that helps achieve continuous shooting up to 14fps(10) . This lets you capture moments of fleeting beauty or facial expressions.
Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder for inspired shooting
High-contrast electronic viewfinder (EVF) delivers high resolution equivalent to 2359k dots. Stunning resolution and self-illumination allow the subtlest details to be displayed for precise composition.
Pro-style operability and features
Count on pro-style control with a manual ring for manual operations and Multi Interface (MI) Shoe for future expandability with various accessories for advanced photographers. Solid magnesium-alloy chassis, with dust/moisture resistant design of all operating parts including dials and buttons, is ideal for tough outdoor use.
Connect to smartphones and tablets with one touch
Instantly transfer a photo or movie to your Android™ smartphone or tablet simply by touching it with the camera -- using downloadable PlayMemories Mobile and built-in Wi-Fi and NFC™ (Near Field Communication) . One touch can also activate Smart Remote Embedded, for remote control of the camera from a mobile device and movie recording start/stop.
Support for PlayMemories Camera Apps (PMCA) (12)
Enjoy a camera that gains functionality with time. Choose from the growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps(12) for remote control, picture and video effects, and much more. Installation is simple using your PC or the camera's own Wi-Fi connection.
Choose pro-quality XAVC S(4) or AVCHD movie recording
Especially for serious videographers, XAVC S format(4) provides low compression for high-quality movie expression and minimal noise even in scenes full of movement. You also have AVCHD format for easy editing and sharing. This camera uses 4K codec supporting 4K(4) ,(5) movie recording at up to 100 Mbps and additionally enables Full HD image recording.
