Sony announces a pair of new high-end digital cameras
Sony has launched a pair of new digital cameras that fall into its Cyber-shot family. The first of the new digital cameras is the RX100 II that uses Sony's new Exmor R CMOS sensor to provide improved image quality in low light situations. The RX100 II also features integrated Wi-Fi and NFC technology along with the tilting LCD.
The new RX100 II is an upgrade to the original RX100 digital camera from Sony. The new version has a 20.2 effective megapixel back-illuminated Exmor R 1.0-type CMOS sensor and one touch smartphone connection with NFC-equipped devices. The camera supports accessories using a multi-interface shoe and multi-terminal. The rear LCD measures 3.0-inches and is a White Magic LCD unit that tilts up-and-down.

The RX100 II is able to record full HD resolution video at 24p/25p and gives users the ability to instantly choose from five popular focal lengths using the control ring including 28 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm, 70 mm, and 100 mm. The camera features 3.6 times optical zoom and Clear Image Zoom to 7.2 times.
The second new digital camera from Sony is the RX1R that features a full-frame image sensor with 24.3 effective megapixels. The RX1R also uses a Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* F2 lens.
The RX1R has an optical low-pass filter in front of the sensor to suppress unwanted color artifacts, which is similar to many D-SLR cameras.
When the original
was introduced last year it was the first compact, fixed-this camera the future 35mm full-frame 24.3 effective megapixel sensor. The updated RX1R model promises to improve the performance of the original camera further. It will launch in mid July and can be pre-ordered now.

Yeah, calling the RX1R a compact is definitely a stretch, so you may as well go for something with interchangeable lenses.
