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

    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. 1,229k 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

    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 50Mbps. 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 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.

    Wi-Fi / NFC™ for fast, simple sharing

    With Wi-Fi built into the RX1R II, you can easily transfer a photo or MP4 movie to your smartphone or tablet, then upload it to your favorite SNS (social networking site). NFC (Near Field Communication) even simplifies establishing connection between the camera and device when using a NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet.

    Automatic Eye AF

    Automatic Eye AF

    The RX1R II employs Eye AF that automatically detects and tracks the eye of a moving subject, for more framing freedom. Eye AF is available even in AF-C focus mode.

    Strong, light magnesium alloy body

    Strong, light magnesium alloy body

    The sculpted lightweight metal body conveys strong, solid assurance for shooting in all circumstances. Every component has been meticulously refined to enhance precision and ease of operation, and designed to function flawlessly and reliably in the long run.

    Macro mode for sharp extra-closeup shooting

    Macro mode for sharp extra-closeup shooting

    Rotate the macro switch ring to activate macro mode and shorten the minimum subject-to-image-sensor focusing distance to 20cm. Minimal lens unit protrusion ensures shooting comfort. You can even take advantage of Direct Manual Focus (DMF), MF Assist, Peaking function as well as use the XGA OLED Tru-Finder, etc. while engaged in macro shooting.

    Intuitive, versatile dial operation

    Intuitive, versatile dial operation

    Settings are easy to adjust while framing a subject as you look through the viewfinder. Rotate lens barrel rings with your left hand to control the aperture or activate macro mode, and fine-tune focus. Select a focus mode with the front-mounted dial. A right hand can operate top-mounted mode dial, exposure compensation dial, custom button, AEL button, etc.

    More precise white balance adjustment

    More precise white balance adjustment

    The RX1R II offers more white balance adjustment steps (twice as many on the amber-blue axis; four times as many on the green-magenta axis) than the RX1R, so you can finely tune white balance with more subtle precision for more natural colors.

    ISO Auto Minimum Shutter Speed

    Prevent blur in a shot of a moving subject by setting a shutter speed at which ISO sensitivity starts changing when ISO AUTO (while in P or A mode, or in Multi Frame NR) is selected.

    1200-zone Evaluative Metering

    High-precision metering by an advanced evaluative metering sensor with 1200 zones ensures balanced exposures in wide-ranging lighting conditions. You have a choice of Multi Pattern, Center Weighted or Spot metering mode.

    Priority setup in AF-C/AF-S

    In AF-S (Single-shot AF) or AF-C (Continuous AF) mode, choose AF priority for taking pictures only when subject is in focus, Release priority for taking pictures even when subject is not in focus, or Balanced Emphasis for balancing the AF and Release options to achieve accurate focus, without missing a decisive moment when shooting moving subjects.

    Creative Style

    Creative Style settings bring out the character of your scene. Simply select any of 13 settings (Vivid, Portrait, etc.) and the camera will adjust image parameters. You can also fine-tune contrast, saturation and sharpness to suit your preference.

    Auto HDR (High Dynamic Range)

    Auto HDR integrates the best details from three exposures to expand the dynamic range of your images from darkest shadows to brightest highlights and capture all the tonal gradations seen by your naked eye.

    D-range Optimizer (DRO)

    In difficult lighting, DRO corrects your images to achieve smoother, more natural gradations with more detail in the highlights and shadows. You can use it during continuous shooting and when photographing moving subjects.

    Multi Frame NR (Noise Reduction)

    Multi Frame NR (Noise Reduction)

    This mode combines four shots' best details to significantly suppress noise and raise sensitivity, letting you clearly capture dark scenes without a tripod or flash. Camera shake blur is also lowered while contrast and detail are raised.

    Focus Magnifier & Peaking function

    You can clearly magnify the image to simplify manual fine-tuning of the focus whether shooting still images or movies. The Peaking function can also be activated to colorize the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.

    One-touch remote and one-touch sharing

    One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing Imaging Edge Mobile app to your NFC-enabled Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

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

      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

      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 color artifacts) or Standard (to balance those priorities) settings to achieve image character you're aiming for. Low-pass filter bracketing lets you preview effects of various settings.

      XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ with retractable design

      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 molded-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

      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. 1,229k 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

      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 50Mbps. 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 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.

      Wi-Fi / NFC™ for fast, simple sharing

      With Wi-Fi built into the RX1R II, you can easily transfer a photo or MP4 movie to your smartphone or tablet, then upload it to your favorite SNS (social networking site). NFC (Near Field Communication) even simplifies establishing connection between the camera and device when using a NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet.

      Automatic Eye AF

      Automatic Eye AF

      The RX1R II employs Eye AF that automatically detects and tracks the eye of a moving subject, for more framing freedom. Eye AF is available even in AF-C focus mode.

      Strong, light magnesium alloy body

      Strong, light magnesium alloy body

      The sculpted lightweight metal body conveys strong, solid assurance for shooting in all circumstances. Every component has been meticulously refined to enhance precision and ease of operation, and designed to function flawlessly and reliably in the long run.

      Macro mode for sharp extra-closeup shooting

      Macro mode for sharp extra-closeup shooting

      Rotate the macro switch ring to activate macro mode and shorten the minimum subject-to-image-sensor focusing distance to 20cm. Minimal lens unit protrusion ensures shooting comfort. You can even take advantage of Direct Manual Focus (DMF), MF Assist, Peaking function as well as use the XGA OLED Tru-Finder, etc. while engaged in macro shooting.

      Intuitive, versatile dial operation

      Intuitive, versatile dial operation

      Settings are easy to adjust while framing a subject as you look through the viewfinder. Rotate lens barrel rings with your left hand to control the aperture or activate macro mode, and fine-tune focus. Select a focus mode with the front-mounted dial. A right hand can operate top-mounted mode dial, exposure compensation dial, custom button, AEL button, etc.

      More precise white balance adjustment

      More precise white balance adjustment

      The RX1R II offers more white balance adjustment steps (twice as many on the amber-blue axis; four times as many on the green-magenta axis) than the RX1R, so you can finely tune white balance with more subtle precision for more natural colors.

      ISO Auto Minimum Shutter Speed

      Prevent blur in a shot of a moving subject by setting a shutter speed at which ISO sensitivity starts changing when ISO AUTO (while in P or A mode, or in Multi Frame NR) is selected.

      1200-zone Evaluative Metering

      High-precision metering by an advanced evaluative metering sensor with 1200 zones ensures balanced exposures in wide-ranging lighting conditions. You have a choice of Multi Pattern, Center Weighted or Spot metering mode.

      Priority setup in AF-C/AF-S

      In AF-S (Single-shot AF) or AF-C (Continuous AF) mode, choose AF priority for taking pictures only when subject is in focus, Release priority for taking pictures even when subject is not in focus, or Balanced Emphasis for balancing the AF and Release options to achieve accurate focus, without missing a decisive moment when shooting moving subjects.

      Creative Style

      Creative Style settings bring out the character of your scene. Simply select any of 13 settings (Vivid, Portrait, etc.) and the camera will adjust image parameters. You can also fine-tune contrast, saturation and sharpness to suit your preference.

      Auto HDR (High Dynamic Range)

      Auto HDR integrates the best details from three exposures to expand the dynamic range of your images from darkest shadows to brightest highlights and capture all the tonal gradations seen by your naked eye.

      D-range Optimizer (DRO)

      In difficult lighting, DRO corrects your images to achieve smoother, more natural gradations with more detail in the highlights and shadows. You can use it during continuous shooting and when photographing moving subjects.

      Multi Frame NR (Noise Reduction)

      Multi Frame NR (Noise Reduction)

      This mode combines four shots' best details to significantly suppress noise and raise sensitivity, letting you clearly capture dark scenes without a tripod or flash. Camera shake blur is also lowered while contrast and detail are raised.

      Focus Magnifier & Peaking function

      You can clearly magnify the image to simplify manual fine-tuning of the focus whether shooting still images or movies. The Peaking function can also be activated to colorize the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.

      One-touch remote and one-touch sharing

      One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing Imaging Edge Mobile app to your NFC-enabled Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.
