Should a similar situation arise, you can immediately activate the saved combination via dial. This mode can memorize up to three groups of settings (including exposure modes, shutter speed, Drive mode, ISO, White Balance, Metering modes and more).

Fine-Tune Images via the Photo Creativity Interface


Now it's easy to achieve exactly the look you desire. Just rotate the rear control dial to intuitively fine-tune properties of your image in real-time on the screen. This Photo Creativity interface lets you adjust Background Defocus, Color, Brightness and Vividness as well as overlay these multiple effects.

Fulfill your creative vision with 13 modes, including Toy Camera, Pop Color, Posterization, Retro Photo, Soft High-key, Partial Color and High- contrast Monochrome. Real-time preview is available for most effects.

Record Full HD movies in 60p or cinematic 24p


Take full advantage of the bright lens and sensitive sensor to create movies of breathtaking quality with extremely low noise, even in dark environments. Movies are recorded at Full HD resolution at 60p for supremely smooth playback or 24p for a more expressive cinematic look. You can also enjoy the unlimited manual creative freedom of P/A/S/M modes.

Cut, Crop and Track Any Subject Perfectly


Save an expertly trimmed, beautifully balanced composition in addition to your original image, whether you're shooting a single- or two-person portrait, snapping a close-up, or capturing a moving subject with tracking focus.

10 fps Continuous Shooting


You can always capture the ideal moment and facial expression, even when recording sporting events and other fast-moving action, by shooting continuously at ~ 10 frames per second (speed varies depending on shooting conditions.)

Steady Shots Even Without Steady Hands


Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake blur during handheld still image shooting. When shooting movies, Optical SteadyShot (Active Mode) enhances stabilization and compensates for rolling camera shake.

Focus on What You Like


The MF Assist function enlarges the image ~ 8.6x or 17.1x to allow super-fine tuning of the focus. The Peaking function highlights the sharpest in-focus areas of your image –even when not using MF Assist–to clearly show what is focused.

Capture the Faintest Detail


Auto HDR expands the dynamic range of images from darkest shadows to brightest highlights. Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) similarly adds details to the highlights and shadows, and can be used when photographing moving subjects.

Multi-Aspect Still Image Capture


Shooting flexibility even extends to aspect ratios. Depending on your scene and artistic vision, you can capture still images in your choice of 3:2, 4:3, 16:9 or 1:1 aspect ratios.

Never Be Off Center Again with Grid Lines


Grid lines on the LCD support more accurate horizontal and vertical alignment of the camera with walls, streets and other elements in your scene. Select from three: Rule of 3rds Grid Line, Square Grid Line, and Diagonal + Square Grid Line. For extra assistance, use the Dual-axis Digital Level Gauge to check for camera roll and pitch.

Up Close and Personal


Step Zoom lets you swiftly select any of 5 commonly used focal lengths (28, 35, 50, 70 or 100mm) by simply turning the control ring.

No Subject is too Wide or too Tall


Shoot breathtaking panorama photos with ease via Sweep Panorama. Simply sweep the camera either vertically or horizontally to create sprawling cityscapes or majestic landscapes.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Capture JPEG, RAW, 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-mosaicing, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC.

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 ~ 84° and down ~ 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.

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 provided the freedom to choose a ratio that matches the scene or the specific shooting purpose.

Carl Zeiss® T F1.8 3.6x Optical Zoom Lens

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.

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.

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.

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.
