Announced alongside the new RX100 IV, the new Sony Cyber-shot RX10 II combines the same 1-inch, 20.1MP stacked CMOS sensor and DRAM memory chip to deliver low-light image performance, along with 4K video capture.
The RX10 II features a familiar 24-200mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss zoom lens, along with a 3-inch 1228K-dot resolution LCD and a new 2.35 million dot XGA OLED viewfinder.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cP1FKaUCbxw&w=700]
Like the RX100 IV, it captures 4K video internally to SD cards and will shoot lower resolution video up to 960fps. Unlike the RX100 IV, which is limited to 5 minutes continuous 4K capture, the RX10 II can roll 4K footage up to 29 minutes at a solid 100Mbps in the Sony XAVC-S codec.
