Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II review – Viewfinder, live view, LCD and video

Like the original RX100, the RX100 II carries a 3in, TFT LCD screen with an impressive 1.23-million-dot resolution. However, customer feedback has seen the addition of a tilt function capable of an upward angle of 86° and a downward angle of 45°. This makes shooting from waist-level or at a high angle much easier.

The introduction of the multi-interface hotshoe allows the use of Sony’s EV1MK EVF. Though brilliant to have, at £360 it is an expensive option for most enthusiasts.

Below the mode dial is the movie record button, which will shoot movies at full HD 1080p resolution, at 60p, 60i or 24p and saves as AVCHD or MP4. Manual controls are available in this mode.
