High ISO, high frame-rate, high drama—oh my! Our Sony A7R II and RX10 II hands-on previews continue

Last week, I was in the delightfully quirky city of Portland, Oregon on a shoot with Sony's latest 4K-capable cameras, the Sony A7R II and Sony RX10 II. I'm back in the office now, and having had a chance to filter through the thousands of images and videos I shot on the trip, I've added even more stills from both cameras, as well as a healthy selection of videos.
Updates to the A7R II and RX10 II galleries
For both cameras, I focused on low-light and high ISO imagery in my second gallery update. My Sony A7R II gallery also got some images shot using prime lenses, while my Sony RX10 II gallery update added more portraits. But while both of these are still cameras first and foremost, it's with the videos that I had the most fun.
Following below, you can see a selection of the ultra high-def 4K and Full HD videos shot with both cameras as well as the oh-so-cool high frame-rate video I shot with the RX10 II. All of these videos are unedited and straight out of the camera, and if you want to see them prior to YouTube's recompression, you'll find links to the original videos beneath each one.
My first field test for each camera will be coming soon, so watch this space. In the meantime, you can find our previews and side-by-side comparisons with each camera's predecessor at the links below:
