The sequel to Sony's highly-regarded Cybershot RX100, the RX100 II, is now official, following a few leaks ahead of its launch. The latest version of the point-and-shoot segment leading device has added several key feature enhancements, adding to its appeal. In addition to Wi-Fi, NFC, a Multi Interface Shoe, Multi Terminal and a new tilting 3.0-inch LCD panel, the new camera also incorporates a new 20.2-megapixel BSI Exmor R 1.0-type CMOS sensor for better low-light images.

The new sensor is matched with an f1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens, that makes it a good camera for shooting in wide range of lighting conditions. It is also the first Sony camera to feature NFC for one-touch pairing with Android smartphones and tablets without any need to dig through settings. The addition of Wi-Fi means that when combined with the iOS Sony Play Memories app, users can also wirelessly transfer files to iPhones and iPads, or directly to a PC or Mac.

The Multi Interface Shoe and the Multi Terminal allow users to extend the capabilities of the RX100 II. The MI Show allows users to add an optional electronic viewfinder, external flash, stereo microphone, while the Multi Terminal can accept a shutter-release remote controller, for example. The new 3.0-inch LCD viewfinder can now also be tilted up and down for low-angle or over head crowd shots, just like Sony's higher-end DSLRs and NEX mirrorless line.

The Sony RX 100 II is already available for pre-order in Europe for mid-July availability, with North American availability by the end of July for $750.
