The extra weight of a DSLR can be overbearing in hot climates and the shutterbug on your smartphone does little to fend off the sun’s glaring effect. Sony has the perfect solution and it comes in the form of its new premium compact shooter. The RX100 II accommodates both struggles by capturing amazing DSLR-like images in low-light settings thanks impart to its dynamic c2.2MP, 1.0-type Exmor R backlit CMOS sensor. A hinged 3-inch LCD is plastered in the rear to make room for angle shots. It also comes NFC-enabled for wireless image transferring.
