Overview

Zoom into worlds unknown.

Focus imagination anew on 4K super-realism.
Sony's acclaimed high-zooming RX10 II camera contains a remarkable advance in photo and movie possibilities — the world's first memory-attached 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor. Use it to create stunning 4K movies, up to 40x super slow motion, spectacular still images, and more. A new world of super-real photography emerges. Zoom in.

Features

20.2 MP (effective) 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor

The world's first1 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 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 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 via camera alone

The RX10 II can record high-precision 4K movie data directly on a memory card inserted into the body while suppressing moiré 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 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), 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.

Quick precision autofocusing up to 0.09 sec.

AF performance of the RX10 II reaches speeds as fast as 0.09 second. 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.

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.

 

Up to 14fps continuous shooting without blackout

Thanks to the new super-high-speed image sensor—and despite its 20.2 MP high pixel count—the camera features accelerated readout speed that helps achieve continuous shooting up to 14fps. This lets you capture moments of fleeting beauty or facial expressions.

Support for PlayMemories Camera Apps (PMCA)

Enjoy a camera that gains functionality with time. Choose from the growing range of PlayMemories Camera Apps for remote control, picture and video effects, and much more. Installation is simple using your PC or the camera's own Wi-Fi connection.

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.

Choose pro-quality XAVC S4 or AVCHD movie recording

Especially for serious videographers, XAVC S format 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 movie recording at up to 100 Mbps and additionally enables Full HD image recording.

Diverse movie functions supporting pro-style usage

Various available movie functions include Picture Profile (that determines the character of movies by changing basic parameters like chromogenic effects and gradation adjustment), S-Log2 gamma (that extends the dynamic range of recording to reduce occurrence of blown-out highlights and black crush), TC/UB, Rec Control, Dual Video Recording, etc.

Shoot almost anywhere with wide ISO sensitivity

Sensitivity extends right up to ISO 12800, for crisper images in extremely low light. Let Auto ISO mode determine the most appropriate setting automatically, or manually expand sensitivity as low as ISO 80. The camera also allows you to set up lower limit shutter speed at time of Auto ISO setting.

Custom button creative convenience

The custom (C) button allows you to program one of over 40 possible functions to best adapt the camera's capabilities to your shooting style. By assigning a frequently used function or a preferred setting to this button, you can call it up promptly. You'll gain handy fingertip access to your selection — for faster, more intuitive camera operation.

Dual Rec still shooting during movie recording

Shoot still images of 17 MP while recording a movie. The camera enables you to capture impressive high-quality stills even if shooting movies. New Auto Dual Rec release function lets the camera automatically take photos during movie recording. Select frequency of Auto Dual Rec release from high/standard/low settings.

Various shutter functions now enhanced

Shutter-related functions have been improved. For example, the self-timer function now supports bracket shooting, so you can use this valuable feature even in situations when you can't release the shutter yourself. The number of exposure bracket shots is expanded to nine.

MF Assist and Peaking functions for focus refinement

These features help you fine-tune the focus as you desire. Manual Focus (MF) Assist magnifies the area you are focusing on to enable more precise adjustment, while Peaking highlights the sharpest or most in-focus area with your choice of color to help determine whether further focusing adjustment is required.

Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

Simply press the shutter button halfway to activate Lock-on AF. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size. Improve tracking performance and take full advantage of every photo opportunity.

Bright Monitoring

This function, which boosts image brightness, for example, can be assigned to a customizable button for easy access when shooting a starry sky or other dark scene.

Remote Camera Control supported

When the camera is connected to a computer, you can use Remote Camera Control to take pictures or change settings on the camera from the computer connected via USB port. All you need is to download the Remote Camera Control application of a version that supports your PC.
