Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M2 Digital Camera Announced Price, Specs

Sony today has officially announced the Sony DSC-RX100M2 compact camera. The new Sony DSC-RX100M2 digital compact camera is a “Mark II” version of its popular Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 model.

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M2 is a compact point-and-shoot camera that features a large 20.2 megapixel 1″ Exmor R CMOS sensor to produce high resolution still imagery and full HD 1080i/p video. Sony claims that the new sensor is 40% more sensitive in low light than its predecessor.

The 3-inch WhiteMagic LCD now articulates (84 degrees up, 45 degrees down), allowing for easier composition. Another major addition is a Multi Interface Shoe, which can not only accept an external flash, but also an electronic viewfinder or stereo microphone. The RX100 II also has Wi-Fi and NFC capability, which allows for one-touch photo transfer between camera and smart devices.
