Low Pass Filter
In a first for digital cameras, the Sony RX1R II features an optical variable low pass filter that allows shooters to manually adjust the balance of image resolution and presence of moiré or colour artifacts to match the subject. The three settings for the low-pass filter include “off”, which provides comparable effects to having no low-pass filter and is suitable when prioritising resolution, “standard”, which strikes a balance between resolution and removal of moiré and colour artifacts, and “high”, which places more emphasis on reducing moiré and artifacting. This unique feature allows photographers to achieve the desired image quality and resolution based on the presence of moiré-inducing high spatial frequency objects in the scene, essentially combining two cameras - one with and without a low-pass filter - into one body. Low-pass filter bracketing is also available and can be used to compare the effects of different settings.
Sony RX1R II features
New for the RX1 series, the Sony RX1R II has a built-in retractable XGA OLED Tru-Finder that pops up and down with simple one-push operation. The viewfinder features ZEISS T* coating and four glass elements, including two aspherical lenses, that work together to deliver a magnification of 0.74x and clear corner-to-corner visibility with minimal distortion. The professional digital camera also has a 3.0 type WhiteMagic 1.2 million dot LCD display that can tilt upwards to 109 degrees and downwards to 41 degrees, allowing for a greater range of shooting angles and positions. The Sony RX1R II digital compact camera is also Wi-Fi and NFC compatible and fully functional with Sony’s Play Memories Mobile app available for Android and Apple iOS platforms.
Recording video with the RX1R II
On the video side, the camera’s advanced sensor and processor deliver exceptionally detailed movies with low levels of noise. It is able to support full HD 1920x1080 video recording at frame rates of 60p, 30p or 24p through use of the versatile XAVC S movie recording format. New videos and content on the Sony RX1R II compact camera will also be posted directly on the Sony Photo Gallery and the Sony Camera Channel.
