As demo cameras come and go, there’s usually no procrastination in boxing them up to send back, cause another one is coming. But with the RX1R II, I waited until the last moment and packed it up just in time to make the shipping deadline. Taking it snowshoeing , the final weekend shoot, was a perfect use case and example of what the camera does best. Trying to be in the moment, and taking a break from work, I just tossed the RX1R into a backpack. Occasionally, as we walked to the trailhead, a scene would catch my eye or moment. I’d point and shoot, then pack the camera up again. I wasn’t there to “get a shot,” just capture the fun we had, and later in Lightroom appreciated the details in the shots and colors; especially, the plate of tacos.
For full-res versions of the shots, see the Flickr gallery, and when Sony resumes shipping the cameras again, I hope to get another one. I had a custom bike bag made just for the RX1R II too for an event this summer. As I said when the camera was announced, it’s a palm-sized Pro camera, and one that’s ready for a Sunday spent snowshoeing and relaxed, or at client shoot.
I also took photos of the sun and moon with it too in Maui last month.…
My daily shooter is Sony a9 II with a vertical grip and various Sony lenses attached like the FE 20mm F1.8. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
