Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 II review – Build and handling
Aside from a slight change to the labels on a couple of buttons, the RX10 II is externally identical to its predecessor. The body is made from magnesium alloy with a faux-leather finish to add texture and grip around the main body of the camera. The grip itself feels good; it’s a comfortable size and in the hand it is quite easy to forget that you are using a bridge camera and not an entry-level DSLR.
The RX10 II’s DSLR-like feel is aided by the range of buttons and dials. There are numerous customisable buttons and the function button is set to reveal a quick menu to change all the current shooting settings.
There are two nice touches on the lens of the RX10 II. The first is that it has an aperture ring and the second is that aperture clicks can be turned off, which is useful when shooting video.
