Sony RX100 Mark 2

Back in January, on my birthday, I managed to secure an excellent deal on the Sony RX100 Mark 2. Paying just over half of what the camera currently retails at, I felt certain that there had to be something wrong with it. But, as it turns out, I could not have been further from the truth.

The camera felt right from the moment that I picked it up; being small, light and ergonomically suited to my hand. This was further bolstered by an intuitive menu system, fully customisable buttons and concise manual control.

With its Zeiss F/1.8 lens, the RX100-M2 takes a fast photo; even in low light. Attach the VFA-49R1 filter adapter and a whole host of other creative options become available. For me this included the Raynox MSN-202 and DSC-250.

The RX100-M2 works beautifully with both Raynox macro adaptors. Combining focus peaking with an optional focus zoom (both x8.6 and x17.1 magnification) the camera makes a potentially tricky job almost too easy. Which may go some way to explaining why my obsession with macro photography has never been so rampant.

Not too bad. Especially when you consider that these were taken at night, at my kitchen table and lit only by a half-sized 60 watt bulb.
