The bigger the imager, the better the image. That's why the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-R1 incorporates an APS-class image sensor more than 12 times the size of the typical sensor. You'll get high sensitivity, low noise and a phenomenal 10.3 Megapixels of resolution. This is the world's first camera to combine an APS-class sensor with Live Preview of the scene, so you can compose your shot with full framing, exposure and white balance accuracy.
The DSC-R1 incorporates a pro-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 5X Optical zoom lens with T* (T-star) coatings. With its 24mm wide end (35mm equivalent) you can shoot wide angles that typical digital cameras just can't match, while maintaining plenty of telephoto reach. The Free-Angle 2.0" LCD monitor 90 lets you shoot from waist height, over your head or even floor level.
