Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 M2 vs. DSC-RX100 at ISO 6400

So how does this new backlit CMOS sensor in the RX100 M2 handle low-light situations?  Take a look at a close-up of the above photo taken at ISO 6400 in Guy Fieri’s Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square NYC.

Lots of detail and fairly well behaved digital noise.  The above photo was shot RAW.  Lightroom 4 does not support the new RX100 M2’s RAW format even though it is supposed to be the same RAW format as the older RX100.  Lightroom 5 just announced support for the new camera, but I still have not jumped into Adobe’s new Creative Cloud (or CC for Cash Cow).  As a result, I processed the photo through Sony’s Image Data Converter.

So how does this compare to the old RX100 under the same circumstances?  Take a look:

You can see more detail in the RX100 M2.  I know that I could pull even more detail through Lightroom tweaks.  So, this great camera can only get even better…

The Sony RX100 M2 is currently in stock at both Adorama and B&H Photo.
