Richard Sibley tests Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II, with new 20.2-million-pixel stacked sensor, 4K video capture and slow-motion video at up to 1000fps.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II review – Our Verdict
Like its RX10 predecessor, the RX10 II produces great images, it has an excellent lens, very good build and handling, and it excels at video capture. The new EVF and electronic shutter options are great additions to the camera, and the 4K video capture and slow-motion options are excellent. However, for existing RX10 owners you have to ask if there really is enough to tempt you to buy the RX10 II, particularly if you aren’t interested in video or faster shooting bursts.
For those starting in video, and other creative types, it should prove a very versatile all-in-one tool. There are few situations that the RX10 II won’t be able to cope with, and the 4K video should mean that it won’t be superseded too quickly.
There is no doubt that the RX10 II is a great bridge camera, and those looking to lighten the load don’t need to look much further than this all-in-one solution. The catch is the price, which at £1,200 makes it a somewhat considered purchase.
