Sony adds NFC to Cyber-shot camera

Sony RX100 II Cyber-shot

Sony has launched its first NFC camera with the RX100 II Cyber-shot, an updated version of its popular RX100 model, which promises to provide crisper and clearer imaging.

The RX100 II boasts a new 20.2 megapixel back-illuminated Exmor R 1.0-type CMOS sensor for better low-light images, while the f1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens allows for more vivid photos and full HD videos.

WiFi connections to Android smartphones are easy to establish via ‘One Touch’ NFC for sharing and uploading content, while a One Touch Remote feature means a phone can also be used to trigger the camera’s shutter release at a distance.

The camera also packs a bright ‘White Magic’ LCD screen that tilts up and down giving the user greater comfort while shooting from various angles.

The RX100 II is available to pre-order from Sony today at £649 (US$991) and will arrive at retail in Europe from mid July 2013.
