BEACON TRANSCRIPT – If you thought your DSLR camera was advanced, think again. Developers think there is always room for more, which explains why 42 mighty megapixels were packed in Sony’s RX1R II digital camera. The new model features many other improvements in respect to its predecessors.
Sony’s customers were deeply impressed by the RX1R and the RX1 models that the company released in the previous years. The two full-frame compacts featured unprecedented tech specifications that made Sony’s digital camera stand out from competing products on the market. Yet, Sony decided to unveil the ‘Terminator’ of digital cameras: the 42 megapixel RX1R II.
As readers probably guessed by now, the most noteworthy characteristic of the new digital camera is the 42 mighty megapixels that have been packed on Sony’s new device. Yet, tests will prove whether the additional 18 megapixels really make a difference in point of image quality or not. Sometimes the official tech specifications may be exaggerated compared to the real capabilities of the camera.
Either way, we declare ourselves truly impressed of Sony’s decision to pack 42 megapixels on their RX1R II camera. The ISO range had to be in keeping with the rest of the specifications; thus, users can select an ISO range between 100 and 25,600, but they can also expand it to 50 and 1,024,002 levels.
Since blurred images are very frequent with impressive zooming values, Sony introduced the Fast Hybrid AF function. The latter offers a 30 percent faster response during auto focus. The real attraction of the new model is the low pass filter – the first to have ever been added on a digital camera. This new setting has been thought for users who want to manually adjust the color and the resolution of their images.
In case you still have doubts on Sony’s new digital camera, the following lines might convince you to make the purchase. The producer has embedded a tilting LCD display, which can be placed in different angles ranging from 109 to 41 degrees. The display has 2.4 million pixels, Sony has added.
Neal Manowitz, Sony’s Digital Imaging vice president, has explained that the goal of the current project was to offer advanced image specs in a digital camera that is so small it can actually fit in a person’s hand. The prices, however, won’t be so small; the company plans to sell the camera for $3,300 in the United States and $4,200 in Canada. Customers will be able to purchase the camera at Sony’s authorized dealers.
