The new Sony DSC-RX1 is the world's first 35mm compact digital camera, with a small camera body that houses 24.3MP full-frame sensor. The camera has a built-in 35mm f/2.0 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T lens; Taking advantage of the high quality images that a full-frame sensor can deliver, the camera is said to shoot "clean" high-ISO images up to 25,600, and Accurate high speed auto focus (AF).

Sony DSC-RX1 Key features:

Full-frame 24MP Sensor

The Sony DSC-RX1 is clearly aimed at serious photographers who are already comfortable with manual exposure and focus control, and who may already own a DSLR and are looking for a sophisticated little camera to augment their big rigs. By putting a prime lens on the camera, Sony was able to use the best glass possible - a good thing, because a lesser lens's optical issues would show up clearly on a full-frame 24MP sensor. And, as the first compact 35mm digital camera, it is likely to be embraced by high-end aphotographers.

Let's take a closer look at the Sony DSC-RX1.

The world's first 24.3 MP effective 35mm full-frame sensor offers an ISO range of 100-25,600; 14-bit RAW image data recording further improves image gradation, while the BIONZ image processor enables up to 5 fps high-speed continuous shooting. Sony also offers a mode in which the camera captures six images in a fraction of a second, and combines the data from all images to create a single image that they claim reduces noise by two stops. Shutter lag is claimed to be 0.13 for focus speed - a DSLR-like performance.

The Sony DSC-RX1 can also capture full HD 24p video, with manual control and audio input. Users can enter Program, Shutter, Priority, Aperture priority, Shutter Priority, or Manual exposure mode when shooting movies. In addition to a built-in Stereo microphone, the camera offers an external mic jack for off-camera microphones.

Control Layout

Ergonomically, the Sony DSC-RX1 offers three control rings for aperture, focusing and macro controls, and a Quick Navi setting lets users quickly access other camera settings. MR (memory recall) mode can memorize up to three groups of the user's preferred settings. Settings include zoom magnification, white balance, exposure compensation, shutter speed, drive mode and metering modes. This enables quick switching of settings. Manual focus is aided by peaking, which highlights the edges that are in focus in your choice of three colors (white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography.

This camera has two Autofocus modes: Single-shot AF (AF-S) or Continuous AF (AF-C), which tracks moving objects. It also has Manual Focus for manual focusing freedom, and Direct Manual Focus (DMF), that first uses autofocusing to focus on the subject, and then allows fast and easy switching to manual focusing for even more precise adjustment.

Super-Hot Shoe

The Sony DSC-RX1 has a "multi interface shoe," which can accommodate accessories such as a newly-designed flash unit, an electronic viewfinder, an optical viewfinder, thumb grip, clip-on LCD monitor for video, and more. The built-in LCD monitor measures 3 inches and has 1.229k dots resolution.

The Sony DSC-RX1 has built-in HDR which combines three shots that can be as far as 6 EV stops apart. The built-in flash is small and projects a modest amount of light, which is fine for fill and close-distance lighting, and the camera offers all of the usual flash modes.

Then there are the way-cool features: Sweep Panorama (Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera continuously shoots images and stitches them together.) Face detection and registration (and it can prioritize focus on children or adults), and self-portrait auto framing (shoots a quick vertical portrait with perfect composition after you've shot the horizontal) are the kinds of features you'd find on a compact camera.

Rounding out the Sony DSC-RX1's feature list is its 15 creative modes (Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Clear, Deep, Light, Twilight, Night View, Autumn Leaves, B&W, Sepia, Sunset, Portrait and Landscape.), the ability to fine-tune saturation, contrast and sharpness to taste, and Picture Effect mode, which applies fun filters to images including Soft Focus, Posterization, Retro Photo, High Contrast Monochrome, Rich-tone Monochrome, Miniature, Soft High-key, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Partial Color, Watercolor Painting, HDR Painting, and Illustration.

Yes, the Sony DSC-RX1 is a premium-priced camera. But if the camera performs as predicted, it will be the best compact digital camera money can buy.

Sharpest Camera Lens Combination Ever


from Irvine, CA  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

I had the privilege of comparing the RX1 to the Sony A7 & A7R, Olympus OMD EM-1 and the FujiFilm X-T1. All of these cameras are wonderful but they just don't measure up to the RX1 in terms of edge to edge sharpness. The 55/1.8 on the Sony A7 comes very close but the RX1 still wins out. However, if I was just shooting portraits the A7R/A7 with the 55/1.8 is tough to beat. The EM-1 and the X-T1 are both awesome camera's with tons of features but they just can't compete with the full-frame Sonys in terms of detail, low light, shallow depth of field and dynamic range. I've tried very hard to replace the RX1; I even sold my first RX1 and bought the Sony A7R thinking that it would produce better results with the larger sensor and FE Zeiss 35 mounted on it - wrong. Center sharpness was great but the corners were bad. The first curtain shutter shock inherent to the A7R diminished sharpness with many lenses. The shutter shock on the A7R forced me to sell it and replace it with the A7. I'm very happy with the A7 but still doesn't quite produce the same results as the RX1. Ended up repurchasing the RX1 in the form of the RX1R. No matter how hard I tried I simply couldn't replace it.

A fixed-lens Leica replacement


from Pasadena, CA

This RX1's lens is excellent, producing tack-sharp files with extraordinary resolution and dynamic range. It's a shame that the electronic viewfinder is not built in, but the addon eve,, though expensive, is better than any I've used before. There is one fault that really should be remedied as soon as possible: the focus distance scale behavior: 1. the scale only appears when the focus ring is turned. There should be an option to have it on all the time. 2. The scale is only in meters 3. The scale is pretty coarse 4. There is no indication of depth of field, as e.g. there is on the Fuji X cameras, which also have a much finer scale that can be switched to feet or meters. There's no reason not to remedy these problems with a firmware upgrade, which would make the camera nearly perfect.

I'd have given it 6 stars if I could


from Undisclosed

Fist of all, if you don't have the very best lens/body from Nikon, Canon, Leica etc, you will be very disappointed in the images from your current camera once you see these. Color balance a bit on the sat side for me, but that can be fixed in post. Good golly the sharpness and contrast, even in low light is amazing Very easy to handle if you have the thumb lever, still not too bad if you do not. Menus are easy to access ad understand. Only gripe is the obvious one about limitations of lens reach. has jiggled tele modes which are good, but not the real deal and not raw. A bargain at this price for the output quality of this thing.

Extremely happy and satisfied


from Boston, MA

All around this is a great camera. I rented several cameras before purchasing the RX1, including a Leica M and Nikon D-800E. Although some may think the RX1 is expensiveâ€"it is, in fact, a bargain when you look at all that it has to offer. I made several image test with each of the rented cameras. Without a doubt this camera fulfilled most of my needs and was not short on quality in any category. The materials, finish and workmanship is excellent, it is easy to use and the images are equal to other cameras that I tested. Color differences between the rented cameras where subtle and easily fixed with processing. It is a mirrorless camera with 2 lenses in one (wide and macro), excellent optics, a large 24 MP full frame sensor, optional (but necessary) electronic viewfinder, electronic level and bright screen. It is very easy to operate and fits into my jacket pocket. There is no guess work while composing the image. I am very, very happy with the quality of images thus far. I am a still photographer so I have not used the video. I imagine the quality on screen is off the charts.

No regrets!


from costa mesa, ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

Couldn't be more happy with this investment. Once you get up to speed on some of the basic tools it is a dream to shoot. It makes ordinary scenes pop with color and life. As an amateur photographer, and avid traveler this is my device of choice. Dragging a full frame DSLR around screams attention whether traveling abroad or at home and it's not always the attention you want. This thing is so compact and provides DSLR quality photos that it just checks off everything on my check list

Great, great camera. Awkward messy directions


from Pennsylvania, USA

Can't say enough good about this camera. It is a huge piece of photographic technology in a very small and, for the most part, user-friendly, very well-performing package. But beware the user manual. It is clearly put together by a bunch of technologists who have no idea how to explain how to use this camera in a comprehensive, orderly, rational, step-by-step way.
