Traveler Update: The Sony DSC-RX100 II Digital Camera

If you’re wondering what happened to Canon and Nikon, so do we. In the compact, non-DSLR category, Sony certainly rules, with the Alpha 7 and NEX-5T. And here we have the Sony DSC-RX100 II Digital Camera ($748), which is the most highly regarded pocketable digicam.

Sony’s best pocket camera packs plenty of technology into one small, portable product:

  • Sensor – The DSC-RX100 II boasts a 20.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor backed by a BIONZ Image Processor which offers high sensitivity and low noise by using a back illumination technology. It also offers beautifully defocused backgrounds, with optical zoom capabilities of up to 3.6x.
  • LCD display – The DSC-RX100 II features a 3.0-inch 1.2-million-pixel LCD screen that displays your images clearly, even in direct sunlight.
  • Optics – A 3.6x optical Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 10.4-37.1mm f/1.8-4.9 lens provides a flexible 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-100mm.
  • Wireless – You can connect the DSC-RX100 II to your Android smartphone or tablet using the PlayMemories Mobile app, either via wireless or NFC connectivity.
  • Interface – The multi-interface shoe lets you attach accessories, including a viewfinder and a remote control.

Accolades usually reserved for SLR cameras have been showered on the DSC-RX100 II. You don’t need to turn a control ring to know why.

In 2008, after the economy took a turn, Lainie decided to be the change (instead of a victim) and began the process of “lifestyle redesign,” a joint decision between both her and her 11-year-old son, Miro. They sold or gave away all of of their possessions in 2009 and began a life of travel, service, and exploration. Lainie and her son Miro began their open-ended adventure backpacking through Central and South America. They are slow traveling around the globe allowing inspiration to be their compass. The pair is most interested in exploring different cultures, contributing by serving, and connecting with humanity as ‘global citizens.’
