The compact advanced point and shoot (PnS) camera category is a space that is heating up, considering every major camera manufacturer - Sony, Olympus, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Fujifilm - has at least one of these in their kitty. Over the years, this is the only space which is seeing innovation vis-a vis the regular point and shoots. Sony has recently come out with a successor to its impressive RX100 - the DSC-RX100 II (or the RX100 M2) featuring a 20.2 MP backside illuminated sensor along with Wi-Fi and NFC support.
Sony RX100 II front face
The Sony RX100 II measures 101.6 by 58.1mm and is 38.3mm thick. These dimensions are marginally thicker than the older RX100. The camera is quite compact and can easily fit into your jeans’ front as well as back pocket and at just 281 gms it does not feel very heavy as well. Build quality is top-notch thanks to the all-metal body. Sony hasn’t cut any corners here with the metallic elements present on the mode-dial, the lens control ring, the four-way jog dial as well as the buttons. The only break in the metal is provided by the rubber thumb-rest which gives the camera a good amount of grip. We would have still liked a rubber grip for the fingers in the front. You do get an optional grip-accessory though.
The top portion of the RX100 II looks similar to the RX100 except for the presence of the hot-shoe attachment in the centre
The RX100 II has a tilting-type LCD which is great for low-angle as well has shots over the head
