RX1R II Professional Compact Camera with 35 mm Sensor
Higher quality framed in a compact footprint
Great camera capabilities fit better than ever in your palm, with the compact RX1R II. Full-frame format compatibility and other state-of-the-art image sensor and processing innovations ensure breathtaking image quality. The bright fixed focal length lens embodies the renowned optical integrity of ZEISS® .
Higher-resolution full-frame CMOS sensor
The 35 mm full-frame Exmor R® CMOS sensor provides for 42.4-megapixel resolution, sensitivity up to ISO 102400, wide dynamic range and low noise. The back-illuminated structure expands circuitry scale of a new copper wiring layer for 3.5 times faster data readout. The enhancements allow the RX1R II to deliver readout of images, AF response and continuous shooting capability, all at high speed.
Large-aperture ZEISS® Sonnar T* 35 mm F2 lens
The premium-quality ZEISS® Sonnar T* 35 mm F2 lens with maximum F2 aperture features a proprietary AA (advanced aspherical) lens element and minimal lens unit movement that allow the lens barrel to be very light and compact. Lens and sensor imaging plane are calibrated to optimize resolution with consistent clarity throughout each image.
BIONZ X™ image processing engine upgraded
BIONZ X processes 42.4 megapixels of data from the 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor to reproduce fine realistic details with noise reduced according to image area characteristics. This allows for fast, faithful depiction of nuanced light and texture. The fixed-lens design of the RX1R II also helps to optimize processing of image information for the lens and the sensor.
Speedy, accurate Fast Hybrid AF
399 focal plane phase-detection AF points and 25 contrast-detection AF points make Fast Hybrid AF extra quick and accurate under all conditions. The system features extensive phase-detection coverage (45% of image area) and 30% faster AF, as well as high tracking performance that assures capability to capture decisive moments.
Optical variable low-pass filter
LPF effect settings take advantage of the sensor's high 42.4-megapixel resolution to deliver the ultimate image quality for your needs. Choose among Off (to prioritize image resolution), Hi (to reduce moiré and colour artifacts) or Standard (to balance those priorities) settings to achieve the image character you're aiming for. Low-pass filter bracketing lets you preview effects of various settings.
XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ with retractable design
The retractable Tru-Finder™ features 0.74x magnification, an optical system of four glass lens elements including two moulded-glass aspherical lenses, corner-to-corner clarity, minimal distortion, anti-reflective ZEISS® T* Coating and brilliant reproduction of recording detail. The EVF can instantly, precisely preview how your settings will affect an image. A separate eyepiece cup is included.
Tiltable LCD screen accommodates your eyepoint
The LCD screen is easy to monitor throughout a versatile range of shooting positions. Its 3.0-type WhiteMagic Display, with approx. 1229k dots including high-luminance white pixels, can be tilted/positioned from 109 degrees up to 41 degrees down at max and ensures excellent visibility in all situations, even outdoors or in other bright environments.
Full HD movie recording and XAVC S format
The RX1R II supports the XAVC S movie recording format, for capturing the quality of Full HD motion picture footage at frame rates of 60p (50p), 30p (25p) or 24p, and at a high bit rate of 50 Mbps. This increases your capability to express your visions in truer images that contain finer details and minimal compression noise, moiré and jaggies.
AF-C focus mode/5fps shooting with AF tracking
AF-C (Continuous AF) focus mode enables the RX1R II to track moving subjects while maintaining sharp focus, even when shooting continuously at 5fps, thanks largely to the 399-phase-detection-AF-point system's widespread autofocus coverage throughout a large portion of the image area.
Supports 14-bit uncompressed RAW format
New compatibility with 14-bit uncompressed RAW format lets you choose the optimal format for your needs. The camera thereby ensures supreme quality of tonal gradation to maximize the benefit of the image sensor's wide dynamic range.
Compatible with multiple aspect ratios
Now, 1:1 and 4:3 join 3:2 and 16:9 as aspect ratios that are supported by the previous model. The 1:1 aspect ratio with 28M (instead of 42M) pixels still gives you adequate expressive capability for later trimming, regardless of whether you intend to trim for vertical or horizontal image orientation.
