At a press conference held recently in New York, Sony unveiled its new lineup of cameras ― the Cybershot RX10 II and RX100 IV shooters and the α7R II compact camera which showcases interchangeable lens.

With Sony’s XAVC S codec, the RX10 II can shoot 4K video for up to 29 minutes at 100Mbps through its 20.2 megapixel sensor, 14 fps continous shooting and an ISO sensitivity of up to 12,800. It can also shoot super slow-motion movies at up to 960 frames per second.
Both compacts share quite the same features; each model has an updated contrast-detection autofocus system and a high-contrast XGA OLED electronic viewfinder with 2.35 million-dot resolution. The Sony Cybershot RX100 IV and RX10 II will be available this coming July for about $1,000 and $1,300 respectively. Pre-orders for both model start on 17th of June.

While it’s 3.5x faster than its predecessor, a7R II also has a five-axis image stabilization system, BionzX image processor and an anti-aliasing-filter free sensor. The same as the two new Cybershot compacts, Sony a7R II can record 4K quality video in a full-frame mode, the first of its kind in the digital imaging world.
