Camera review: Sony Cybershot DSC-RX10

 
4.0
Verdict: Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 might have the shortest focal range - 24-200mm - in this shoot-out, but it uses a much bigger 1-inch image sensor compared with the 1/1.7-inch image sensors used by its peers.As a result, the RX10 is as heavy and bulky as a DSLR camera, due to the big sensor and huge...

Sony DSC-RX10 Mark II

 
4.4
Verdict: Announced in June 2015, Sony's Cyber-shot RX10 II introduces many of the same new technologies as the RX100 IV (which we reviewed in November 2015 but in a larger, SLR-like body with a long zoom lens.

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 II review: One serious superzoom

 
4.5
Pros: Constant f/2.8 aperture and great lens quality, physical aperture ring control, weather-sealed pro-spec construction, fast autofocus and decent close-up ability, great tilt-angle LCD and built-in electronic viewfinder, ace slow-mo and 4K video capture
Cons: Limited upgrades compared to original model, no touchscreen controls, lens slow to travel through zoom, focus selector positioning not ideal, maximum focal length limitations, no pinpoint or more complex autofocus options, it's really expensive
Verdict: The Sony Cyber-shot RX10 II is, just like its predecessor, a camera that's going to divide opinion. On paper its 24-200mm f/2.8 equivalent lens and 1-inch sensor combination sounds like the bees knees. Until, that is, you see the physical size of this camera: it's big, like DSLR-scale big.

Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Mark II review

Verdict: The Sony Cyber-shot RX10 II is an update to the original RX10 (mark I) which retains its predecessor's 8.3x 24-200mm constant f2.8 zoom lens. The most significant update is to the sensor, which retains the older model's 20 Megapixel resolution as well as its 1 inch physical dimension, but introduces...

Verdict: The RX10 mark II is an excellent example of a product that has almost everything you need for stills and video in one package. The versatility of the lens plays an important role, as do the quality of the sensor and the video capabilities.

Review: Sony RX10 II

 
4.2
Verdict: You might look at the price above and think, 'Wow, that's expensive for a bridge camera.' You'd be right too, except Sony's RX10 II is special.

4.6
Verdict: Sony has once again shown that it has the point-and-shoot game figured out. So much so that it continues to be its own biggest competitor. Both the RX10 and RX100 lines share the same problem: their predecessors are just too good, cost less, and are still on the market.

4.1
Verdict: Bridge cameras have always been interesting beasts; generally able to do it all, just not always particularly well. But with the launch of the original Cyber-shot RX10 and Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FZ1000 in 2014, this category of cameras morphed into something more interesting.

Sony RX10 II review

Verdict: Almost everything about the RX10 II is seriously impressive, but I have two niggling doubts that stop me giving it top marks. One is the lack of a touchscreen, which I feel is a significant drawback for video capture - something this camera is otherwise superbly equipped for.

Sony RX10 II

 
4.5
Pros: Excellent build quality; Superb viewfinder; Excellent image and video quality for its class; Bright and versatile zoom lens; Very fast autofocus; Great burst performance and depth; Incredible slow-motion capabilities; Really intuitive Wi-Fi image transfer; Good battery life
Cons: Expensive compared to its nearest competitors; Less zoom reach than rivals; Soft in corners wide-open; Slow buffer clearing; Small rear control dial has poor tactile feedback; Long delay to render each high frame-rate movie; No tilt/swivel or touch on the LCD panel
Verdict: Two years after its predecessor invented the large-sensor, long-zoom category, the Sony RX10 II is here to take things to the next level. It aims to replace your bulky interchangeable-lens camera with a veritable Swiss Army knife compendium of photographic features in a beautifully-crafted body.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II

 
4.0
Verdict: The Sony RX10 II is a high-end bridge camera that uses a larger than normal 1-inch sensor to achieve superior image quality. The sensor itself is an upgrade over that in the original RX10, as despite being the same physical size and 20.2MP resolution, its new Exmor RS design features a stacked...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II review

 
5.0
Verdict: The lens is a Zeiss 24-200mm equivalent f/2.8, which again provides the aperture and focal lengths that most enthusiast photographers will need. Since the release of the RX10, Panasonic has released the Lumix DMC-FZ1000 – a bridge camera with a very similar specification to the RX10.

Sony RX10 II review

 
4.5
Verdict: Sony first introduced its convention-defying RX10 bridge camera range back in 2013. Most bridge cameras offer monster-sized zoom ranges you might never use fully, which forces the makers to use tiny 1/2.3-inch sensors that compromise the image quality.

4.0
Verdict: I bought my sony second hand with 1250 shots on it as I wasn't willing to part with any more coin until I had test driven the camera the way i like to. my debate over a bridge camera was all to do with lugging around a canon 5d mkiii and several lenses to the usa and europe from australia.

Not all I was hoping for.

 
3.0
Pros: Superb Quality For Type
Cons: Bad Battery Life, Complicated Controls, Lens Knock, Not Good In Low Light
Verdict: Photography is my hobby, I recently downsized from a full frame SLR as it was too heavy and awkward to carry. The Sony RX10ii is not my first bridge camera but will be my last. I was hoping for better quality for £1000+.

So far, this thing is a dominator!!

 
5.0
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Verdict: Loving on this camera - after two weeks of use. I got it for the ultra high framerate feature - 960fps is amazing - and I've been using it as my goto knock around camera. Never thought I'd be so in-love with a fixed lens setup, but the RX100ii is great. Super fast lens with a decent zoom.
