Product Details

Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera, Model DSCRX100M2B

Capture detail in low-light conditions with Sony’s Exmor R™ sensor and f/1.8 Carl Zeiss glass. This pocket pro boasts an ultra-sensitive ISO 12800, Wi-Fi sharing and an expandable shoe system. Better yet, a lightning-quick AF can focus in as little as 0.13 seconds. Suddenly, this award-winning camera just got a whole lot better.

Features:

  • New 20.2 MP 1-inch Exmor R® Sensor
    The world’s first 1.0” CMOS sensor featuring an Exmor R® image sensor technology. With this back-illuminated technology, the sensor doubles light sensitivity and combines with Sony’s Column A/D Conversion to reduce noise by half — a great help when photographing in dimly lit environments. Markedly reduced noise is evident even when high-sensitivity settings are used for capturing night landscapes or indoor scenes
  • Carl Zeiss® T* F1.8 3.6x optical zoom
    The large-diameter F1.8 Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar T* lens delivers refined background defocusing (bokeh). A premium multi-layered T* coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection
  • Simple connectivity to smartphones via Wi-Fi® or NFC
    Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi® /NFC control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the DSC-RX100M2 also supports NFC (near field communication) - a first for Sony digital cameras - providing “touch connection” convenience when transferring images to Android™ smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control — a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone — connection between DSC-RX100MR and the smartphone can be established by simply touching devices
  • Expanded ISO Sensitivity
    With a new Exmor R® sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony’s flagship SLT-A99V, the DSC-RX100M2 easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 160 to ISO 12800
  • High speed Auto Focus
    To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor R® CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver high-quality image signals to the camera’s BIONZ® processor, which provides intelligent response data to a new high speed actuator motor in the lens. The result is fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds even in low light
  • Comfortable control ring for manual operation
    A unique control ring around the lens works in combination with an intuitive, displayed user interface for meticulous SLR-type control over settings that satisfies even the most fastidious users. The control ring can be assigned to adjust various features (at various values) from basics like zooming and aperture to creative functions like Picture Effect. Moreover, it turns smoothly and seamlessly, allowing quiet, click-free usage while shooting movies including a new step-zoom function that enables instant selection of commonly used focal lengths
  • Capture JPEG files, RAW files, or both
    The DSC-RX100M2 saves pictures as compact JPEG files and/or ultra-high quality RAW files. RAW files save images prior to de-mosaicking, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC
  • New Multi Interface Shoe connector
    Users can expand photographic and movie shooting possibilities by attaching optional accessories via the Multi Interface Shoe, including an electronic viewfinder, powerful external flash and stereo microphone. You can also connect with a compatible remote control via Multi Terminal
  • Full HD Movies at 60p/60i/24p
    Capture HD Movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning picture quality. MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web
  • Tiltable 3.0” Xtra Fine LCD™
    The tiltable 3” (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine™ LCD Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up approx. 84° and down approx. 45°. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic™ technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation
  • Auto Object Framing
    Give your photos a professional look with Auto Object Framing. Featuring advancements like exceptional two-person portrait capability along with Face Detection and Tracking Focus, Auto Object Framing not only turns ordinary photos into stunning compositions but does so automatically recognizing the scene then cropping accordingly
  • Expanded ISO Sensitivity
    With a new Exmor R® sensor that features the same adaptive noise reduction technology from Sony’s flagship SLT-A99V, the DSC-RX100M2 easily offers a wide range of sensitivity from ISO 160 to ISO 12800
  • Customizable function button
    Assign up to seven different functions to the function button, to allow quick access to your most frequently used functions
  • Optical SteadyShot® with 3-way Active Mode
    Optical SteadyShot® image stabilization reduces shake and blur by countering camera movements in both horizontal and vertical directions. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths. Active 3-Way stabilization adds digital rolling control that counters clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation, resulting in more stable videos even at long focal lengths
  • Auto HDR mode
    Captures more scene dynamic range than a single exposure can handle—and more range than photo film. Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot (up to 6 EV stops). Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)
  • Face Detection/ Registration technology
    The camera can automatically detect and register up to eight individual faces and adjust focus, exposure, white balance and flash to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends. Can prioritize children or adults
  • Multi-aspect ratio recording for still images
    Capture still images in any of four aspect ratios — 1:1, 2:3, 4:3, or 16:9 (vertical to horizontal). This provides the freedom to choose a ratio that matches the scene or the specific shooting purpose
  • 3.6x optical/7.2x Clear Image digital zoom
    Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom digitally doubles optical zoom for closer photos
  • Picture Effect mode
    Realize your creative potential with Picture Effect, a fun and simple way to convert ordinary landscapes and portraits that come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Effects are Soft Focus, Posterization, Retro Photo, High Contrast Monochrome, Rich-tone Monochrome, Miniature, Soft High-key, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Partial Color, Watercolor Painting, HDR Painting, and Illustration
  • Creative Style settings
    Control how the camera processes your images with six finishing styles: Standard, Vivid, B&W, Sunset, Portrait and Landscape. You can even fine-tune contrast, saturation, and sharpness to your personal taste

Just got the camera. I have used the previous version of this camera for a year now and it's great. I was looking forward to the wi-fi feature of the new camera, but it's a no-go, at least if you're a Mac OSX user. There's one thing I really hate -- us Mac users being relegated to the back of the bus insofar as software support is concerned. In this case, I go to the web link Sony has designated in the supporting documentation as the link to download the software for wi-fi for the Mac (a completely unintelligible Japanese link if you must know, or are fluent in Japanese) and I am greeted with a "File Not Found" (the only non Japanese characters on the web site) greeting. Please don't tell me that a company as large as Sony is incapable (or unwilling) to release software support for a product for both the Windows and the Mac platform simultaneously. Very frustrating experience and it definitely does not make me want to buy a VAIO computer if that's their ulterior motive.

I owned and loved the RX100 but the RX100M2 has some really bad pitfalls. 1) Their new "autofocus" is worse than in the RX100. It prioritizes the background and objects in the foreground are often out of focus. For example, I can be recording video in auto-mode with a person 2 feet in front of me and it will focus on the background half the time, even when the person takes up 90% of the frame. It makes no sense why the camera would focus on something that takes up 1/10th of the picture! 2) Whites really, really throw off blacks. If someone is wearing a white shirt and black pants, their legs turn out like black shadows because it messes up the exposure. There 'should' be an option for backlight compensation or something that de-prioritizes whites and compensates for blacks. Blacks are always hard to pick up and this makes it that much worse. 3) Wi-Fi is really spotty. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S3 so maybe an iPhone is more consistent but when you start recording, it's very laggy and almost impossible to use the zoom function. Thanks for hearing my feedback, Sony. Can't wait for the RX200!

The best point and shoot camera in th emarket

By

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

I have all three models of RX100 and it has never disappointed me. You have to see the pictures to believe the quality from a small camera like this. For me everything is perfect and justify the price of the camera.

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

Bought the camera for indoor low light concerts for a band that i work for. It did such a stellar job many people thought i was using a DSLR! Absolutely loved the camera for both stills and videos. And then one night it started malfunctioning. if i went to press the button, the window changed over to the wheel and started rotating furiously! it finally stopped but again, almost every time I went to take a pic the wheel would show up. While it didn't change it was super annoying and I lost many good shots. For one show I had to switch to video mode then spend extra time pulling frames from them for my still shots. My warranty is up and don't want to spend alot of money getting it repaired if it can be repaired. Been looking at the A6000 or waiting for it's replacement. Sad that it malfunctioned on me because i was totally in love with this camera!

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

good image quality, good in marginal light conditions. No digital zoom - optical zoom to 3x only. Haven't yet begun to decipher all the features of this camera, I have a feeling I'm only beginning to tap the potential of this device.

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

Well built. Works perfectly out of the box with factory settings. Fits easily into a pants pocket with plenty of opportunity to take excellent pictures while learning to use all the advanced features. However, not for a telephoto fanatic.

Great Camera

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

My wife and I bought one of these for a trip we just took to Italy. I had it for a couple of months before and was able to test it and get comfortable with it. I bought extra batteries and 32M memory cards. Bottom line, this is a great camera. I was able to take photos outside in bright sun light, inside museums (no flash) and it is so easy to turn on, shoot and then turn off. I did buy a leather cover and a shoulder strap. This is a tough little camera. The battery last forever (never had one run out suddenly) The photos I bought home from the trip are great. I highly recommend this camera for what you can do with it.

Great pocket digital camera

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

The large sensor and zeiss lens combine to produce exceptional photos. It's extremely flexible giving you the option of using one of several automatic modes to full manual operation. Its price, performance, and size are ideal if you're looking for a 'handy' digital camera.

Much better than my Canon PowerShot G9!

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

The picture is clearer, the color is more vivid compared to my Canon PowerShot G9 in the same pre-set settings. I don't have to Photoshop the pictures. I'm very happy and satisfied with the camera.

Great compact camera for general shooting

By 

from Bend, OR 97701, USA

Comments about Sony Cyber-Shot Black Digital Camera:

Great compact camera with a relatively large sensor. Good lens and image quality but only 24-70 mm range. Viewfinder generally good and visible in all ambient light conditions except bright sunlight.
