Why the Sony RX100 II is T3’s com­pact king…

Australian T3 - - RATED -

Larger sen­sor – this one-inch CMOS is a rare treat for a com­pact, de­liv­er­ing 20.2-meg shots and tip­ping the R100 II into semi-pro ter­ri­tory. Lux­ury lens – a big CMOS sen­sor is noth­ing with­out a top-notch lens. This bright, f/1.8 Carl Zeiss num­ber is a doozy. Pic­tures re­ally ben­e­fit, with amaz­ingly crisp pho­tos and 1080p video. Fast shoot­ing – a speedy Bionz pro­ces­sor lets you shoot at up to 10fps. Con­nec­tiv­ity – Sony’s first com­pact cam to in­clude built-in Wi-Fi and NFC for shar­ing pics. Dy­namic dis­play – the three-inch rear LCD isn’t a touch­screen, but can be tilted to snap at awk­ward/cre­ative an­gles. Hot­shoe – ac­ces­sories are pricey, but the op­tion to add a flash gun or viewfinder is handy. Easy con­trols twist the lens to tweak key fea­tures eas­ily (a use­ful short­cut to by­pass the overly small but­tons). Small and strong – very com­pact but made of sturdy, sleek alu­minium.
