Sony's new Sony RX100 II advanced compact camera is brand new, but we've spent some time shooting with one and have some real-world shooting samples to share. New features include a 1-inch backside-illuminated sensor, which Sony claims to be 40% more sensitive to light than the RX100, in addition to Wi-Fi connectivity and an NFC chip. Other major improvements also include an articulating LCD screen, which we found quite helpful for shooting street photography.

The sample images that follow were all shot as JPG's and converted from Adobe RGB to sRGB using Photo Mechanic. No editing has been done. Feel free to click the link on each image for a full-res version. Subjectively speaking, the image quality does look pretty excellent, especially in high ISO situations. We'll be very interested to see just how much of an advantage that BSI sensor provides once it makes its way into our lab.

For reference sake, the sample image gallery I shot for the original Sony RX100 can be viewed here.

This was one of the first images I shot with the new RX100 II. Right off the bat, we were really impressed by the improved low-light capabilities of this advanced compact, which can be attributed to it's new backside-illuminated sensor. Stay tuned for our full lab test, when we'll determine just how much better this compact is, at higher ISO's, than its predecessor.
