The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II is working with megapixels that are half of what the best in the camera world can offer. Its 20 million effective pixels are, however, the usual state of compact digital cameras today. It is already not really that impressive because this feature ranges from 19.5 to 21.3 megapixels. Nokia managed to build its own with a whopping 41 effective megapixels. The aim of Sony for creating this product is to introduce a larger sensor in a digital camera. True enough; the company did a great job in putting what it has to. The only question left is, were there any compromised departments?
- Compact Size With a Lot of Promises
Creating the best grip for digital cameras may be associated most of the time with Sony. The company has made tremendous efforts to make its devices fit in the palm of the hands. The compact Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II fit this description. It can easily be brought anytime and anywhere. The more interesting thing to look at is the proportions of the buttons, the screen, the lens and the ports. Sony deserves another round of applause because of the way the entire camera looks and feels. It has set the bar another level higher again with the position of all the hardware features of this unit.
- Jaw-Dropping Battery Life
The company is not really notable for extending the life of the batteries on their cameras. However, they manage to be different this time. It can take a maximum of 350 photos when it is fully-charged. This is 150 more shots compared to the usual digital cameras. This is not enough for a week in the mountain or in any other place for tourists where there is no electricity. The company decided to make the battery detachable. Buying another one as an extra pack will definitely give tourists something more to look forward to with the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II.
- Not the First of Its Kind but Worth a Try
There are so many products that have a full-blown sensor such as those from Canon and Nikon. There are also others that can fit into the pocket just like the compact size of the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II. However, these features from the cameras that came before the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II were not combined all together. DSLR cameras are better off because of their huge sensors while pocket point and shoot cameras are only good because of their size. Only this unit from Sony made the effort to make it less of a luggage while keeping its performance up.
The price for the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II is definitely reasonable. It is at 650 USD at Amazon and on Ebay. It is already a good shot for those who are just beginning to love taking and producing vivid and sharp photos. The additional features of the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II make it lovelier. It can be connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi.
