Megapixels:
A megapixel is one million pixels. It is commonly used to describe the resolution of digital cameras. For example, a 7.2 megapixel camera is capable of capturing roughly 7,200,000 pixels. The higher the megapixel number, the more detail the camera can capture. Therefore, the megapixel count is a significant specification to look for when buying a digital camera.

Overview

Heralding in a new beacon of light in digital camera technology, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Digital Camera embodies the most ideal features of its earlier versions, but also brings forth many novel and wonderful attributes. Boasting of a durable structure, it comes in captivating black color and is extremely light and easy to handle. Some of its salient characteristics include a 3.6x optical zoom lens, a high-end 20.2 MP 1-inch 13.2 x 8.8 mm Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor, and a ground-breaking BIONZ image processor. You get razor sharp image quality in every shot you take with this camera's innumerable and latest technological advancements.

Optics and Focus

Outfitted with a good 3.6x optical zoom lens, the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II makes a huge splash onto the optical camera scene. Umpteen diverse tasks can easily be performed with the wide-angle lens that offers a large coverage area. A phenomenal focal length to the tune of 10.1 (W) – 37.4 (T) mm and an aperture range of f/1.8 (W) - f/4.9 (T) are provided with this digital camera. An in-built flash and a supreme ISO light sensitivity ranging from 160 to 12,800 only serve to add to the charm of this camera.

Without facing any inconvenience whatsoever, the zoom begins at a 28 mm wide-angle and can go up to 100 mm.

Sensor and Screen

Bright and clear photos along with full HD video recording are effortlessly obtained with this Sony digital camera's technically advanced 20.2 MP 1-inch Exmor R BSI 13.2 x 8.8 mm CMOS sensor. Furthermore, no hurdles are faced while shooting, since you now get crystal clear images even at a far off zoom range. Another beautiful aspect of the camera's sensor is how well it works with the lens. Now great playback can even be enjoyed with the large viewing angle of the camera's 3.0-inch Xtra Fine rear tilting LCD monitor with TFT technology and five modes of brightness variation. High quality video and sound can be viewed at all times with the screen's complete HD resolution of 1,229,000 dots.

Image and Video

Full HD 1080p videos at 24 fps or 60fps are easily recorded with this camera's one-touch video recording feature. The video recording aspect of the camera also boasts of great stereo sound so that you get a complete motion capture experience. Moreover, a rapid image burst rate of 10 fps is also realized with the revolutionary BIONZ image processor that takes all your photos brightly and clearly devoid of any kind of blur, graininess or other undesired elements. Further assisting in the image quality is the swift tracking auto-focus function. The BIONZ image processor is effective for both, closeup as well as long range shots.

Other Features

The in-built wireless and NFC connectivity of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Digital Camera is another brilliant aspect that enables you to instantly share all your media files with your laptops and smart phones so that you can easily upload all your content onto your social networking profiles. Another feature that can be added to the mix of this camera's collective brilliance is its face detection technology to augment exposure for sharper and clearer portraits. You can also select spectacular picture effects to creatively enhance your photos. Some other unique features include multiple exposure and multiple aspect shooting.
