RX1R II Professional Compact Camera with 35mm Sensor
Resolution reaches a higher peak
Full-frame CMOS sensor and fixed-lens design rise to new heights in the RX1R II compact camera with 42.4-megapixel resolution and advanced image processing. Speedy AF, a retractable electronic viewfinder and the world’s first optical variable low-pass filter let you see how seamlessly cutting-edge performance and all-around convenience can co-exist.
High-res, full-frame 42.4-megapixel sensor, BIONZ X and ZEISS® lens distinguish image detail.
Its 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points greatly increase AF speed and coverage.
Optimize image quality with control of low-pass filter effect according to shooting intention/situation.
Startling depth in detail
A 42.4-megapixel back-illuminated 35mm full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS sensor, advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine and fixed-lens design deliver unrivaled resolution and enhanced sensitivity. These technological advances keep images exquisitely detailed, natural and well exposed all the way from their centers to edges, regardless of shooting conditions.
Featuring 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points
With advanced phase- and contrast-detection capabilities, the Fast Hybrid AF system in the RX1R II provides unconventionally speedy, accurate wide-area autofocus coverage and tracking performance. You will be able to shoot better, clearer stills at every opportunity without missing a single moment.
399 phase-detection AF points are packed within a large area of the image (providing coverage of nearly half of the entire frame) and AF response is about 30% faster.
New AF-C focus mode and up to 5fps continuous shooting capabilities along with AF tracking help to ensure that you can reliably capture more climactic moments.
Control LPF effect to achieve your intention in a shot
You can choose from three optical variable low-pass filter effect settings: Off (to prioritize image resolution), Hi (to reduce moiré and color artifacts) and Standard (to balance those priorities). Each in its own way takes optimal advantage of the image sensor’s 42.4-megapixel resolution to deliver the ultimate image quality according to shooting intention and situation.
Double-duty LPF control for added effect
How does the RX1R II provide double duty that would otherwise require more than one conventional camera? Splitting of incident light flux  is controlled by varying voltage to the liquid crystal  between low-pass filter 1  and low-pass filter 2  in order to activate, deactivate and modify low-pass filter effect. LPF bracketing simplifies comparison of LPF effects.

Reviews & Awards
Sony’s BSI CMOS has class-leading noise levels, and for our low-light scores, that translates to the RX1R II having about a half-stop advantage in noise over the competitor.
