The lines between mobile and technology continue to blur and as a mobile site, we often need to look outside the mobile sphere to find the devices that can influence the next generation of mobile technology. The Sony RX-100 Mark II camera is arguably one...

This camera in its Mark 1 version was generally regarded as one of the very best compacts. The lens, with its modest zoom range, is exceptionally fine both mechanically and optically. Features like the very high resolution and tiltable LCD make for a...

While you probably wouldn't want to use the Sony RX100 II for your serious professional work, during our testing, it proved to be more than adept at capturing high-quality still images and video that rival some DSLRs. And that's saying a lot. With...

It's a definite hit for the purist photographer but it won't be the whole family's cup of tea because it's not a lot of fun. Sometimes enthusiasts need a little enthusing...

Sony has once again raised the bar for advanced compact cameras with the RX100 II. Building on the wildly popular RX100, the RX100 II adds a tilting rear LCD screen, flash/accessory hot shoe, built-in Wi-Fi, and a backside-illuminated (BSI) sensor for...

The Sony RX100 II is not only the best point-and-shoot camera currently for sale, but arguable the greatest ever made. It's the perfect combination of a fast, sharp lens that can shoot in low light; a sensor that's on par with some mirrorless cameras;...

Stepping up in the compact spectrum are cameras that tend to be aimed at photographers who want full photographic control. Good low-light performance, the ability to shoot Raw, and accessible manual controls make these compacts a viable portable...

High-end point-and-shoots like the RX100 II tend to make shopping a bit tough for camera shoppers. Unless you have your heart set on the II, you'll be cross-shopping with a bunch of really great options, many of which may better fit your needs.If you...

Hallelujahs and cheers greeted the original RX100, with one critic going so far as to claim it was the best compact ever. (The RX100, by the way, is still available, now for $150 less.) The RX100 II keeps the momentum going, and offers the best image...

The Sony RX100 II is one of the best compacts we have tested. The price point of Rs. 42,990 is something that is a bit of a bother. Allow us to explain. The Sony RX100 is still a capable camera and apart from a BSI sensor and improved sensitivity, the...

Its worth re-stating that this is the best compact camera with an integrated zoom lens. You can find better performance with a fixed focal length compact like as the Ricoh GR for around $800. If you don’t mind bulky interchangeable lenses, the Sony...

Like the best-selling RX100 before it, the Sony RX100 II delivers the same magic potion of large sensor performance in a compact format. When I wrote about the RX100 back in 2012 I said some people will 'complain it lacks a hotshoe, or an accessory...

On paper, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II could appear to be a simple upgrade but it is far more than that. As a result of customer feedback about the original Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, lots of very useful features have been implemented or improved for use...

The RX100 II improves on what many considered to be almost the perfect compact camera. The only real issue is the premium price tag, but if you're willing to fork out then you'll own one of the best compacts money can buy.
